Mature couple, love animals, and seeing new places :)
Hello Hello! My partner Robin and I live in a house in Kitchener, Ontario. We both work full-time in the city. He works for a tech company here, and I own my own Salon. We are new to the world of house-sitting. We are always wanting to travel, but we always find it hard to leave our little Toby. We have always used sites like AirBnB because we love the ability to be away but still feel like we are at a home. Being home owners ourselves we understand the respect, and care a house deserves when you are staying at it. Also we know the love and dedication our little fur baby needs, and we would give that same care and dedication to other people's fur babies. We look forward to this new experience, and connecting with new people.
Our Home & Location
We have lived in our home for 3 years now. We have newly renovated the space to create more of an open concept for enjoyment while cooking and eating. Our home is a 4 level back split, with 3 bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. It has 2 king size beds, and one double. We back onto green space in the backyard which is fully fenced, and set up with lounge furniture and a covered area to enjoy the backyard. We are about 10 minutes from the 401, and 17 minutes from Uptown Waterloo. The are many walking trails in the area for longer walks at night, or cross country skiing in the Winter.. Kitchener/Waterloo is very exciting especially in the Summer months. There are always festivals, and activities like Rib fest, and Jazz fest. If you are visiting in the winter Chicopee ski hill is always a fun time for a day of skiing.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our biggest concern when going away is our Maltese Toby. He is only 6 LBS, and loves to be with you. We never leave him alone longer than 7 hours in a day. This would be very important for us. Toby likes to walk twice a day once in the mornings, and once at night for about 25 minutes each walk. We treat our dog as a family member, as we would treat your pets as well.
As for household responsibilities as long as the snow is shovelled, and the plants get a little bit of water we are pretty easy going.
