About this assignment

We are mainly looking for someone to care for our 4 legged girl, Shelby. She is a 2.5 year old lab/shepherd mix. Very calm for a young dog, well trained, walks nicely on leash, you do need to be able to hold her down if she over reacts to another dog walking by as she tends to do so.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Shelby gets fed twice daily. She also gets minimum 2 walks a day.
There are a few plants that will need to be watered. Aside from that, normal daily living tasks. And enjoy the nature.

What are the good features of the property and location

Located in a beautiful and quiet neighbourhood, no back neighbours, just behin the famous Gatineau park where you can hike, bike, run, bird watch, simply enjoy the nature. You have Le Nordik Spa 8 minutes away, the biggest in North America, an absolute must :)
Even though you feel like you’re in nature, you are 10 minutes away from the National Capital where you can explore the city, enjoy the by-ward market, there are 4 museums within 10 minutes as well.
Grocery stores, movie theater, winners, couple restaurants, pharmacy, banks, plaza are all with8i 2-3 km and the city bus is just down the street.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

As mentioned Shelby can be reactive to other dogs. So you must be strong enough and comfortable to hold her back. We leave on October 16 and would like you to arrive at least a day early so we can show you around and show you how we handle Shelby's little fuss over other animals :)
Please note that more pictures are coming. We are finishing renos, removed carpets in the bedrooms (no carpets at all). It’s a 3+1 bedroom townhouse, 2.5 bathrooms, built in 2008.
