Gorgeous balcony view and Otto´s friendly company
Hi, I am Bruna, a 28 years-old PhD candidate in Forest Science at the University of Freiburg. And my current roomate is a little mixed-breed dog named Otto. I got really interested in Trustedhousesitters.com because my fiancé recently got a job offer in Ireland and moved out there, while Otto and me stayed in Germany. So, as you can imagine, I could use a friendly hand to help me take care of my dog, especially when I need to attend congresses and events, or even travel for a few days.
Our Home & Location
ABOUT OUR HOME:
The 1-bedroom apartment is located in Freiburg, in the Weingarten neighborhood. The apartment itself has 50m², composed by a bedroom, kitchen+living, bathroom and a big balcony facing Mount Schneeburg (south). Its in the 10th floor, so the view is amazing. It is well equiped with all facilities in the kitchen, washing and drying machines in the bathroom, a table and an electric grill in the balcony, a guitar and an acoustic bass, a TV with open channels, Netflix and games in the living room. We have a decent Wi-Fi. I don´t really know if it is superspeedy, but it works well for everything I need. There is no place off limits at the house.
The apartment is close to the main train station and the old downtown (15 min with the tram line 3), which is beautiful to visit, especially the market stands around the cathedral (opened from Monday to Saturday, from 7h30 to 13h30 with fresh local produce). There are supermarkets (3 min on foot), pharmacy (3 min) and post office (8 min) around the apartment. It is also fairly close to some beautiful places to walk in the area, such as the Mundenhof zoo (10 min) and Dietenbach Park (5 min). Other places worth visiting in the region include the Titisee Lake (45 min by train) and Breisach (25 min by train). The closest international airports are 1h20min (BSL Basel Mullhouse Freiburg), 1h50min (FKB Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden) and 2h10min (FRA Frankfurt) by train away....
Besides from what you read in the introduction section, I am very organized and tidy (in a normal way: absolutelly not sloppy, but also not a freak). We (Otto and me) love to walk in the park and sometimes also walk in the forest on the weekends, exploring the surroundings of Freiburg as well as broadening our adventurer side.
WHAT CAN THE SITTER EXPECT:
You will find a clean and cosy apartment. Bare in mind though, that the house will not be free of fur. It´s impossible to be so, cause it is first of all Otto´s home sweet home. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Otto is a 2,5 years old mixed-breed dog. We adopted him when he was 4 months old. He came from Spain directly to Freiburg. He is healthy, castrated but still very active.
You will find in Otto a funny, loving (needy even) and easygoing little guy, eager to make another human friend. One of his favorite hobbies is to hunt flies and small insects, and he is really good at it....
Otto eats twice a day: once in the morning (dry food) and once around 7pm (mix of dry and wet food); he walks also at least twice a day (mornings and evenings). He also requires some time of you to play with him, he is very friendly and needy, so you can pet him as much as you want.
EXPECTATIONS ABOUT THE SITTER:
It is important to me that you obviously take care of Otto and that you have a nice time at our home, but at the same time, have a lot of fun with him. Overall I expect the sitter to be tidy and to keep things organized. + More info
