We are looking for a pet sitter this Christmas to care for our beloved toy poodle Jet while we take our sons on a family vacation. Jet is very people oriented and would be miserable in a kennel. Our home has a large fenced backyard and dog door, so Jet has free outdoor access. Depending on the weather, he enjoys daily neighbourhood walks as well.
We live in Vernon, BC, Canada in the North Okanagan Valley in a spacious, 2400 square foot, two-story, four-bedroom, three-bathroom home. There is an indoor garage and additional outdoor parking space including RV parking. We live in a safe, quiet residential neighbourhood that is a 15 minute walk to Vernon's downtown. If you like technology, we have WiFi, cable, a large flat screen television, and an XBox 360. Depending on circumstances, a vehicle may be available as well.
Vernon is perfect for winter outdoor sports. We are only a 30 minute drive from Sovereign Lake, British Columbia's best cross country skiing facility, and Silver Star Mountain Resort offering downhill skiing, snow boarding, tubing, and ice skating.
It is also a 15 minute drive to Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park for hiking and ungroomed cross country skiing.
Vernon has two movie theatres, a performing arts facility, an art gallery, ice skating rinks, a mall, restaurants, supermakets, and all the other expected amenities. For shopping and exploring further afield, Kelowna is a 70 kilometre drive away. The Kelowna International Airport is a 50 kilometre drive from Vernon.
We hope this opportunity will find a dog lover who would like to holiday in this beautiful area of British Columbia.
