In home sitter for 2 snuggly husky mix dogs while I am on vacation or visiting my children. I live in a rural setting very close to Georgian Bay trails, boating, skiing, historical sites and more.
I am a recently widowed woman of 53 with 2 grown children who both live out of the area. My dogs have been my lifeline since my husband passed and I need someone who understands and appreciates the importance they are in my life. Both my dogs are very snuggly and affectionate. Being part husky, they do have a tendency to pull a bit on the leash on walks (more so the younger one) so I need someone who is able to deal with that.
Our Home & Location
My home is on a 12 acre wooded lot outside a small village. There is a town about 15 minutes drive away and a village within 5 minute drive with a grocery store and post office. I am about 40 minutes drive from a city of over 100,000. Within 15-20 minute drive are beaches on Georgian Bay, historic sites, skiing, a beautiful small town Main Street with wonderful little stores, at least 4 golf courses, spas, zip-lines, go-carting and beautiful scenic drives (specially during fall when the leaves are changing). Within a 5 minute walk there is a trail for walking, biking, rollerblading etc. I believe it is over 20km long and hooks into other trails.
It is a beautiful picturesque place to live.
Responsibilities & Pets
I would like a live-in pet sitter who will walk them at least twice a day and take them out before bed. We also have an off-leash park near by (10 minute drive) that I try and take them to a couple of times a week. One still needs medication once a day. They are used to sleeping in my room with me (off and on the bed).
