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!
