About Tristan

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to host your dog!

We are a professional, active couple living downtown Vancouver (26 & 30 yrs). We've both grown up with dogs at home and currently have a little Shih Tzu named Rudy as part of our family.

I'm employed as a pilot flying out of YVR on a relaxed and flexible schedule (I have only made myself and Jess available on the days where I am home so that your dog is never left unattended). Jess is the day manager at one of Vancouver's local restaurants and works a 9-5 shift. In the evenings we are often out and about at the dog park or on the Sea Wall together.

Rudy, our little dog, is a 12 year old Shih Tzu who loves walks and can either be quite playful or can also keep to himself depending on the surrounding dogs characters. He's very easy going and accustomed to different dogs staying in his home! He even shares his toys! Regardless of anything he's taken outside a minimum of three times a day (morning,  mid day and in the evening) but usually more. We also live two blocks from a dog park which is convenient!

Although we live in a dog friendly 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of downtown, I often find myself on Spanish banks, kits beach or hiking in the surrounding area. I would be very happy having a dog accompany me on some local hikes providing I have information about your dogs abilities so that I can tailor the hikes to accommodate your pet. Of course I'm fine with a day at the beach or a closed dog park if that's more in line with your preferences.

I would politely ask that we be notified about specific behaviours your dog may have (chewing couches,  barking,  howling ect) to better prepare the house or accommodate their needs.

Of course your pets stay will be well documented for you with pictures sent via text or email and your more than welcome to call 24 hours a day.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Rufus has been staying with Tristan and Jess a lot, on and off these past couple of months because we have to travel so much. Rufus is always SO HAPPY to hang out with them. They have been so helpful and taken such good care of him - even taken him HAPPY to hang out with them. They have been so helpful and taken such good care of him - even taken him on hikes! All around a great experience.

Tristan and Jess took great care of Lily over the holidays and were available when no one else was. Tristan welcomed her into his family Christmas celebration where she received lots of cuddles and walks. Receiving pictures of her relaxing with his celebration where she received lots of cuddles and walks. Receiving pictures of her relaxing with his family made us feel better about leaving her. Would recommend!

Tristan and Jess were great. Rufus had a wonderful time with them. They met me before I made the booking since Rufus had never met either of them before, and we were leaving him for a long stay.
We received a lot of text updates and pictures and before, and we were leaving him for a long stay.
We received a lot of text updates and pictures and they were accommodating on pick-up / drop-off times and dates.
Rufus was so mellow when I picked him up, I think that he was honestly sad to go home.
We have already booked Tristan and Jess for our next trip.
We highly recommend them both.
