Pet sitter needed for our 1 dog , 1 cat and 7 chickens on beautiful Vancouver Island
We are a working couple in our 50s, looking for a house sitter for our 12 yr. old lab, Sam and Sadie, the cat, who comes in for a quick meal and a bit of a snuggle before zipping back outside. Our chickens have a wonderful, fenced free range area in the back yard. Our life here is simple and laid back. Nothing very fancy, just very comfortable.
Our Home & Location
We are on a 1/2 acre lot in a rural setting with large trees, gardens and an ocean view. Spacious decks on the back of the house for relaxing, having a bar-be-que or soaking in the hot tub. Being only a block away from the ocean, it is a quick, easy walk for some beach therapy! Located 15 minutes from Courtenay, 45 minutes from Mt Washington, 45 minutes from Nanaimo and walking distance from Denman Island ferry, there are many options for sight-seeing, shopping and outdoor activities.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility required of a house sitter would be to love and care for our pets. Sam requires feeding and a short walk twice a day and the cat just needs a full bowl of food. The chickens need to be let out in the morning and their gate locked after they put themselves to bed. The eggs from the chickens can be gathered once a day for a constant supply of fresh organic eggs for your breakfast.
