Stella & Zorri need a dogsitter - July 12-Aug 20 2019!
We are a family of 4 + two dogs Stella & Zorri, from Vancouver, BC Canada and Wellington, New Zealand. We are looking for a trustworthy person, couple or family to look after our dogs and our house while we are away for 5 weeks over summer. The house is in a quiet, secure location with a lovely view near Quito, Ecuador.
Our Home & Location
Cumbaya is located in the Valley below Quito and is a bit more relaxed (and green) than Quito itself. Our house is in a quiet gated community with 10 other houses - it has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a large open living area and a good sized kitchen. It's walking distance to a small tienda/corner store (~5mins down hill) and a 5 minute drive to the major super market and the many restaurants of central Cumbaya. There is a bus stop at the end of the street to get to/from the supermarket. The house has a backyard with a trampoline, BBQ, and a covered patio with outdoor seating. The housing complex has a communal playground and small playing field for kids - and the dogs like to run there too.
Responsibilities & Pets
Taking care of Stella and Zorri is the main responsibility for the dog-sitter for the duration of their stay. Both dogs are (mostly) quiet and relaxed. They're both happy as long as they get fed twice a day and some time playing and chasing the ball! Stella can sometimes be a bit shy or anxious with new people, so the dogsitter must be confident with dogs and understand their body language. This is our family home, so general household respect and cleanliness is (obviously) expected, but no gardening is required. We also have a cleaning lady that comes twice a week.
