Rudy and I both work at Shawnigan Lake School and live in a comfortable home just off site of the school. We are looking for a dog sitter who can stay in our home with our dog, Nali. Nali has had previous boarding experiences and we have found that she is much more relaxed and happy with sitters who come to our home. We had a great sitter over the Christmas holidays, but she has now moved away and we are looking to find someone for a week over the March break and other times. Nali is a lovable, 5 1/2 year old large dog who requires a daily walk on/off leash. Since both of us work, she is used to spending time on her own during the day and doesn't need a lot of care over the course of the day, other than a big walk. I have done training with her through Cowichan Canine and she is quite well behaved, although she does have a few quirks and takes time meeting new people. Although she gets along with some other dogs, she can get bossy and is best on her own. We would love to have someone take care of her who is comfortable with all personalities of dogs and who is familiar with the positive reward system of training. We look forward to hearing from you!
Our Home & Location
Our home is a small, comfortable split level home just off site from Shawnigan Lake School in Shawnigan Lake. Our house is covered for maintenance and security. There are trails on the school property where our dog can be walked, as well as may beautiful trails and hikes around the area for walking our dog, Nali.
Responsibilities & Pets
Care of our home is minimal and we encourage sitters to make themselves comfortable in our home. Our main area of need is care of our dog, Nali. She needs daily (45 min - 1 hour) walks - mostly off leash if possible, morning and evening feeding, a few bathroom breaks a day, some play time and attention, and overnight stay for her companionship.
