We live in the small city of Cranbrook.  We are two blocks from a lovely forest walk for the dog.  There is a bus service right outside our house.  We have neighbours but our street is quiet.  We are looking for a house sitter/pet sitter for our 5 year old Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd.  She is a rescue from Northern California.  We have had her for just over 2 year now.  She is a very nice girl, likes people and other dogs.  She needs  2  good walks a day, and a short one in the evening and will be content and happy if that happens - oh and of course she likes to be fed twice a day!   As she is a rescue, she does have a few quirks, - She is not crazy about sudden loud noises, and of course fireworks and thunderstorms, but those should not be happening this time of year!   She is getting better with loud things all the time.  She likes to be around people, and would  not be happy to be left alone for long periods of time.

We like our home maintained in a tidy manner, and due to the time of year likely will require some snow removal.  We do have a snow blower we would be happy to show you how to use!

We have a large home, well maintained on the edge of the city.  Close to forested walking paths.  There are many outdoor activities in this area.  Skiing, hiking, cultural events, and the occassional (in winter) farmers markets and craft fairs.  Kimberley is a 25 minute drive away, and has a beautiful platzl where there are quaint shops and restaurants.  We have high speed internet, so perfect for someone who works remotely.

We have a hot tub to warm your bones after some time outside, or just for the cool days!   

I will update pictures shortly!

My son and I enjoyed this pet sit so much.  We stayed with Iris and Chris for two nights before they left on their holiday to get to know them and their beautiful dog, Glory.  They were such great hosts, warm and welcoming and we enjoyed our stay so much!  I have been sitting for many, many years and I bonded with Glory like I have bonded with no other pet.  I, in fact, have been back to see them and Glory a few times to visit and catch up whenever I am in town.  Great people, a wonderful home, and the hot tub was a wonderful way to end the winter evenings.  Glory is a loving, gentle dog and I will never forget her, or Chris and Iris.  We still keep in touch and have bcome friends.  I would  not hesitate to sit for them again at any time and I highly recommend others to take the opportunity to get to know this great couple and my favourite dog, Glory!
