We are looking for a single person or couple to walk and take care of our dog, home and garden during our absence. Chica, is a 7 year old, well-behaved, 25 pound, shorthaired dog. Walks are a big highlight for her, so we would need someone to walk her at least twice a day (for a minimum of 30 minutes each time) and to get her out into the backyard for pee relief in the morning and before bed. We have four house plants that would need watering weekly, and a vegetable garden that will need caring for.
Nainaimo is a wonderful city with parks and beaches to walk, and is a short ferry ride away from Vancouver. Victoria is a 1.5 hour drive south. We are 3 hours from the wild west coast of the island, and other highlights include Rathtrevor Beach in Parksville, and Cathedral Grove. There is bus service a couple of blocks away, but a car is recommended.
We have tenants who live in the suite below, so we require someone non-smoking and quiet.
