    Dear Work-Awayers :-)

    Dog sitting in Nanaimo Vancouver Island October 1-12

    We are a Dutch couple who have lived in Canada for 5 years. We have shared our home with many travellers for the last 11 years in both Australia and in Canada. We have two dogs, an 11 year old Samoyed x retriever boy called Juneau, and an 10 year old Husky x lab girl called Lyla.

    We are looking for absolute dog lovers who have a strong sense of responsibility as these are not just dogs, these are our family members. Juneau recently has had some health challenges and takes daily medication that he takes well, but has to be given daily in order for him to walk and feel good. Due to his arthritis he is slow, and may rest a few times during the walks and due him being a Samoyed he can be stubborn :-D.

    Lyla, is a rescue dog who has learned a lot since she has been with us. She now walks gently on leash, loves treats and responds very well to them. At times she can respond reactively to small/energetic dogs which is why a meet and greet is not advised ;-D. Often huskies and small dogs are not the best mix. Keeping a little distance from other dogs makes it easier to manage.

    Lyla walks faster than Juneau, which is why we ask for two travellers or a couple to take care of them. Both dogs love cuddles and attention, they do not like being left alone for long periods of time. The longest we would leave them on their own occassionally is approx 3 hours. They love coming along on trips and our car will be available for that.

    They typically get walked morning, lunch and evening.

    We have hosted many workawayers and travellers for many years and have had great mutual experiences. We are happy to provide you with references from our previous travellers.

    We are a Dutch professional couple no kids, and speak fluent German , conversational French, Spanish, Greek and Italian and other European languages some sentences here and there :-) Please contact us for more information. We do typically have 1 or 2 (video based) interviews to ensure we are a good match for each other.

    Here are the aptitudes/attitudes that are required:

    -no signs of being sick (coughing, fever, other flu sign symptoms)
    -no smoking at all (very allergic), no drugs and no excessive use of alcohol
    - mutual respect
    -open communication

    Looking forward to hearing from you
    Thanks so much,
    Monique and Ingo
