All they need is love, affection and food :)
Hello! My husband and I have two Rhodesian Ridgebacks - Walter and Stella. They are both very chill, cuddly dogs who don't need a lot of exercise, especially if it's raining! They both love to be curled up on the couch (under a blanket for Stella!). We prefer to let them stay at home when we are on holidays so they are comfortable and relaxed in their own environment. We live in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, Canada. It is a wonderful place to live (or visit) with endless outdoor activities at our doorstep (hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, skiing, golfing etc).
We have a 4 bedroom home with plenty of living space and a large, fenced yard for the dogs to play in....
Stella is a rescue who sometimes has issues with other dogs when on leash so she needs a strong, confident leader on walks. She is more than happy to just chill at home most days though.
Walter is a big, goofy, relaxed boy who loves to run alongside a mountain bike and chill by the fire when he gets home. + More info
Our Home & Location
The Comox Valley is a hidden gem on Vancouver Island. Careful - you just may end up moving here! Check out https://discovercomoxvalley.com for everything the Valley has to offer.
Our house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bath and 3 living areas (a room above our garage is a bonus/rec room or extra bedroom). Fully fenced backyard. We are less than 5 minutes to downtown Courtenay, 10 min to Comox, 30 minutes to Mount Washington (great skiing in winter, hiking/downhill biking in summer!). Cumberland with its world class mountain biking trails and trendy village is just 15 minutes away....
There is a bus stop just around the corner but our car would be available if you meet our car insurance requirements.
The Comox Valley is home to many fabulous restaurants, shopping and arts in addition to the great outdoors. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Love and affection is the main thing we are looking for. They don't require a lot of exercise as they love to cuddle and just play with each other. That being said there are excellent trails and beaches we can recommend you take them to. They are both fed raw so we would require you to be comfortable with that (clear instructions would be provided). Other than that just simple household care (garbage, mail, plant watering).
