We live in a Cohousing community of 31 households, and share our small home with 2 senior dogs, ages 11 & 13. We are seeking a trustworthy and experienced dog sitter or sitters to keep our pooches company while we attend a 90th birhtday celebration back east.

Situated on the shore of Sooke Harbour, ours is a bright, comfortable, open concept space with water views, one bedroom (queen bed), comfortable living area, grand piano & reliable internet. Cohousing community amenities that you can use include wharf, art room, gym, small library & "commonhouse". If you are interested in the experience of Cohousing, you will be welcome to join in community gatherings such as Monday coffee, Thursday soup lunches and Sunday breakfasts. Shops & "downtown" Sooke are within walking distance, and there are interesting trails and beaches to explore in the area.

The dogs are accustomed to 3 walks a day, plus a very quick pee before bed. They do not require long or strenuous walks, though they won't mind that either. They can even get by with just 2 walks, appropriately spaced, plus a bed-time pee.
Sooke is ~1 hour drive west of Victoria. More information about Harbourside Cohousing can be found at harboursideDOTca. Please note: there is no smoking allowed on the property.

Best would be to arrive a day before we depart (on 29 Dec) so that we can orient you to place & pooches. We will arrange comfortable accommodation for you before and (optionally) after our trip. 

Thank you for considering this house/dog sit!
