House Sitting with Two Dogs and One Cat
Our apartment could not be any more centrally located. Several of Dresden's tourist attractions are within a 5 minute walk from our apartment, i.e. across the street. During Christmas time, the largest Christmas market is literally next door to our apartment building, and several of the smaller Christmas markets are across the street. All tram lines have stops within a 5 minute walk or less from our apartment.
Our Home & Location
My husband and I moved to Dresden in June of 2015 from Texas. Our apartment is located in the very center of Dresden with access to every tram line in the city within walking distance, some of which are across the street from our apartment. All of the city attractions are also within a 5 minute or less walking distance; the Frauenkirche can be seen from our kitchen window. There is plenty to eat, see, and do near our place. The Striezelmarkt (Dresden's Christmas market) is literally next door to our apartment. Everything this small city has to offer is steps away from our apartment. Even with all of this, our apartment is very quiet with the exception of church bells.
The S-bahn and trains can get you to any of the small towns or attractions near Dresden for day trips, such as Meissen (for porcelain), Festung Konigstein, the Bastei bridge, Moritzburg, etc....
Our apartment is 100 square meters having two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, a balcony, and a washing machine and dryer. There is also an elevator for our fifth floor apartment. We also have netflix and a nespresso machine available for you to use. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We walk the dogs three times a day for about 15-20 minutes each time, although they would certainly let you walk them as long as you want. The dogs are also fed twice a day. Gatsby is a German Shepherd/Husky mix, and Beck is a Corgi/Australian Shepherd mix. Gatsby loves to cuddle, and he loves when you give him hugs. Beck will cuddle as long as you're petting him, and then he prefers to be at least an arm's length away. Both dogs are very sweet and eager to please; they will never eat your food or your personal belongings. They've never done this to us, not even when they were puppies!
The cat has an automatic feeder, so no feeding is required, but a cleaning of his box about once a day would be perfect. He is the one you have to keep an eye on with your food. He's been known to lurk if he smells something tasty, but a simple shew away usually does the trick....
All three animals prefer to sleep in the same room with their humans. Beck will always sleep in his own bed next to the human bed. Gatsby usually sleeps on the floor at the foot of the bed or on the couch, and Pacman (the cat) always sleeps on the bed. + More info
