Velcro Vizsla's require someone to attach too in Whistler.
Hi, we are a married couple with no kids…well we have two crazy fun Vizslas that are our kids! We have a 8 year old male dog, Cadence, and a female, Codeine, who is 5. Codeine is the more hyper active and yet craves being with you, often trying to be a lap dog. Both dogs have been fixed. We are looking for sitters who are energetic and fun, who love dogs and are willing to spend lots of time with our dogs both on woodland walks and at home.
We would like to return to the UK to visit aging parents and other family but flights are not yet booked so dates are slightly flexible.
Our Home & Location
We live on the south side of Whistler near Creekside, 7km from the village centre but minutes from the highway and regular bus route. We are close to the local amenities of Creekside but far enough away from the hustle of the main village.
Our house is a 5 bedroom/ 3 'bath' townhouse with recently updated open plan kitchen, dining and living room and has all the normal features of a home… TV, internet, BBQ, washer/drier....
We are located on a strata complex/estate, situated by a lake with private beach and canoes, 2 tennis courts and small swimming pool. All of these can be used by the house sitters, depending on the time of year. The ski slopes are also only a 5min drive when the season opens.
There are a variety of great walking and biking trails throughout the Whistler valley, some only a few minutes walk from the house, a much wider range of forest walks becoming available with a 5-15 min drive. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our Vizsla’s are high energy dogs and need to be walked at least twice a day, for a minimum of 1hr each walk. The walks need to be done 1st thing in the morning…7-7.30am and mid-afternoon 2-4pm. Between walks they love to sleep….cuddle, beg for food and stick to you like Velcro. They just love to be with you all the time (remember to close the bathroom door!) Both dogs need to be fed twice a day.
Additionally our home is our sanctuary and as such we need someone who will treat it the same.
