Family friendly appartment near Scheveningen & Kijkduin beach and a very sweet dog to look after!
We are looking for a house sitter for our dog Sparky. She is a Romanian stray, now living in The Hague.
Since our petsitter cancceled on us and we'll be away on holiday with friends, we cannot find anyone to sit her. We are having a hard time leaving her behind in a kennel. Sparky is extremely kind and sweet.Want to know more about Sparky? She's on instagram! @sparkyfromthehague
Our Home & Location
We live in an appartment in The Hague only 15 minutes walk from the beach (5 by public transport). There are several ways to get to our appartment using public transport. You could either go to Scheveningen or Kijkduin. There is also a special dog beach near our home. It is only 15 minutes to the center of The Hague, where you can find lots of museums and other stuff to do. At the end of our street are 2 restaurants, a small supermarket and just a bit further a big supermarket, drugstore a bakery , a beauty parlour, etc.
Sparky has got her own room.
Responsibilities & Pets
Sparky eats 2 times a day. In the morning and in the afternoon. We take her out in the morning when we get up, in the evening when we go to sleep and we have a long walk during the day, for at least one hour. Sometimes we take her running ( but we are not that fast ).
The only time when Sparky is naughty, is when she visits the beach. During summer time, dogs are only allowed on designated area's. Sparky doesn't really understand this.
Please keep her on a leash at all times. She does run away from her sitters. At the same time, this is the only "defect" she has.
One time a week we brush her teeth and we brush her every 3 days because she gets messy. If she gets really dirty, she takes a shower.
Sparky rides with us on a bicycle, likes busses and some trams, travels with us in the train and in the car.
She can be left alone for some time; between 6 to absolute max of 8 hours....
After a decent walk and with something to drink and a treat she will behave nicely in the restaurants near us where dogs are allowed. + More info
