Dog savvy sitter needed!
We have an old house on a quiet street in Golden, BC. We have one rescue pup who needs a confident and experienced dog sitter while we are away. You will have access to an awesome yard and have your own bedroom.
He isn't great with other dogs in the house so no pets of your own, please. He has special needs so please read below.
Our Home & Location
Golden is amazing! Great access to national parks. Yoho, Glacier and Kootenay National park are all at your back door. There are lots of great bike trails around town and a good mix for everyone. Our house is at the end of a street with a nice trail to walk on. There is also access to the Columbia River wetlands which are absolutely stunning. Our house is a bit older and we are midst renovations, but you would have your own room and access to the whole house. We also have 1/4 acre with a wonderful garden and are in the process of screening in a porch outside.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have a rescue pup who is shy around strangers. He does warm up quickly, but we are working on tackling fear aggression with him. He is getting really good, but can still be iffy, especially with men. Once he is trusting, he will be the biggest love bug but he had a rough start to life and is a little bit shy and unsure. Unfortunately, instead of running away, he feels he needs to bark and growl and will approach. He walks well on a leash, but gets excited when we see other dogs on our walks so he is learning to walk with a head halter. He loves car rides, but will sing you the song of his people the entire time. We've only had him since the end of Feb but he is really the sweetest pup ever. With us he walks off leash while hiking and biking, but we request if you are watching him that he stays on leash. He might be a bit of a handful, but he's a cute handful! If you have any questions please let me know!
