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  year old German Shepherd.  He is getting up there in age, and has some health issues but still likes to play.   He needs 2  short walks a day, and will be content and happy if that happens - oh and feed him twice a day!  He is not fond of kennels as he seems to have separation anxiety but is fine if he remains in his home.  He does have a few quirks but won't be a problem.  He is a large dog. As he is aging, he is not able to be left alone for long periods of time.  (more than 3-4 hours).

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.  And a ski hill as well.  Fernie is an hour drive away, again another ski hill and filled with tourists, winter or summer. 

We have a hot tub to warm your bones after some time outside!   We would be happy for someone to come and meet us and the dog a few days before we leave!
