House and pet sitter
We are a retired couple. We have a house and farm - with a vineyard. The farm has a farm manager. We have 2 dogs - one a mutt and the other a cairn terrier. We will be away for short spells in February and at other times in the year and would like someone to take care of the dogs. The farm is 60 acres and the dogs can be taken for walks anywhere there, though preferably away from the horse paddocks. There is a large hayfield next to the house and the vineyard is virtually in our backyard. We will have pigs being raised at the bottom of the farm about a kilometre away from the house. The cairn terrier likes to wander, so gates must be shut. Brock takes a little while to get used to strangers, has a loud bark, but is harmless.
Our Home & Location
We are on the ALR, but very close to Courtenay city centre. The vista from the house are the mountains and the farm.
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like you to take the dogs for a walk regularly ( twice a day). Feed the dogs in the morning and evening. Make sure the gates are all secure, as the terrier like to go "walkies" on his own. We usually get a phone call from the neighbours telling us he is visiting. The dogs are both healthy, but if there is an issue, then we would need you to take them to the vet.
