About Benedict

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been around dogs a lot for the last 15 years, which has included my own dogs, and a lot of looking after other people's dogs. I am a full-time musician, and music educator, so I work from home, and I am here all the time. The home is a ground level apartment in the heart of Strathcona with a nice shared space in the back yard. Our own dog is here - he is great with other dogs, and not protective over his space. The floors are all wood in the apartment and the temperature is cool, so if your dog gets hot, don't worry. We are close to Crab park and regularly hit the ocean or Strathcona park for some off leash running, or a good long walk through community gardens and trails. Typical day involves a good 1-2 hr walk to start, followed by snacks (depending on your dogs eating schedule and routine). I will then work for a couple of hours and then take them out again for another 30min-1hr walk. I usually teach in the home from 1-2pm, at which point the dogs can stay blocked in my bedroom or the kitchen or both. I then take them for a late afternoon/early evening walk, and if they are staying the night, I will take them out for a last later night bathroom break. If your dog needs more than that, just let me know, and I am sure we can make it work.

I have always been great with dogs, and don't find them intimidating. They tend to love me too :)

Benedict was so great with Bear! He sent me pictures of him and his pooch, Hastings, playing together. I'll definitely be asking him to Bear-Bsit again.
