Pet sitting & House sitting job in Kootenay Rockies
Kootenay Rockies - Kootenay Boundary
We live in the beautiful Kootenays of British Columbia. We have one large, active dog named Ben and one cute little hamster named Hamilton McFluffybutt (Hammy). We adopted Ben 6 years ago when he was 4 years old after fostering him and falling in love with his goofy personality and how active he keeps us. We will be going away for a couple weeks in October and are looking for someone to take care of him that would enjoy taking him for long walks or hiking each day. Someone who will be around during the day or will take him with them in the vehicle, as I am a stay at home mom so he is used to being with me during the day. He does have aggression to other dogs so I need someone that is comfortable walking him with that situation. He wears an "easy walk" harness since he's quite strong, and it makes it a lot easier to walk him. He does love people and has a silly personality and his quirks always make me smile. We live just on the outside of town and have a large home and big yard with nice views and trails that can be walked from just down the road. It is also a great time to enjoy fresh local pears, apples, plums and veggies and enjoy the beautiful changing leaves. There is not much that would need to be done at that time of year for our property. I am a very clean person and expect my home to be kept in the same condition I leave it (who wants to come back from a vacation to clean). If this sounds like something you are interested in, please send me a message :)
