  • Description


    I have 2 large malamute/cross dogs.
    My female weighs 96lbs & my boy weighs 106lbs.
    Both need to lose winter fat and there winter coat.
    You need to be able to handle both dogs, unless u want to walk all morning with one dog(I prefer both together)...
    they need a 1.5-2 hour walk every morning. Monday to Friday (while I’m away at work.
    Then you can leave for a bit if you want and do your own thing around the city. Then around 1-3pm (they need to go out for a bathroom break(20-30 mins), not for long as this will be very hot for them on our hot summer days), too hot for the dogs to be out for very long...
    Wknds (Saturday and Sundays), And any holiday Monday’s. I do however have to work on June 15th which is a holiday and July 1st. You do however only have to walk them in the early morning and not in the afternoon on these days...
    If you have nothing to do some days or evenings, i need some odd jobs in the house to be taken care of, laying some laminate or lino upstairs in the hall floor (very small area) & my back splash needs replacing from a very poor choice of previous roommates.

    The main thing is, is that the dogs need to be taken care of...

    Your breakfast will be provided for you every day you are there to walk the dogs... your days off you provide.
    I’m a Vegan, and very few snacks are found in the home, not far from a grocery store you are always welcome to have other food in the house as my roommate does, I just don’t buy it.
    I am not a smoker, my roommate is, but she smokes outside. I also prefer u r not a smoker as my female is very allergic to the cigarette smoke...

    This is a Christian home

    I work doing landscaping, so I won’t have much time off during the summer to go camping with you unless it’s on wknds, if I have any time off I don’t mind traveling around to smaller towns in the area. Just to show you stuff outside of the city. In the city there is local transportation/buses/let, etc.
