Looking for a pet sitter for a month during Christmas and New Years !!
We are looking for someone who likes the calm life and all kinds of weather.
We are a couple of Mexicans living in Sweden. We have been married for about 7 years. We have three dogs that have accompanied us in all the adventures during our life together. We arrived to Sweden a year ago, and we have lived the best experiences of our lifes, we are here because a job opportunity that caused to left everything and start a new aventure into this country. We are very happy and we have enjoyed every day in this new world
Our Home & Location
We live in a nice house that has a large garden and is located in the center of a very small village near the forest. The town is very small but the house has a very good location, it is close to two differents groceries stores, and two blocks away there is the main square with a pharmacy, some shops, a coffee place, church and several trails to walk in to the forest near the river. It is also very well connected by bus or train to the largest cities such as Jönköping (1hr), Trånas (20min), Eksjö (20min) as well as the train station for different parts like Nässjö (15min by train) including Stockholm about 4 hours, Malmö (3hr) etc.
You will enjoy a calm and a quiet place and the connectivity to other places gives the possibility to make mini trips constantly but you really have everything you need in town....
The house is big, it has Livingroom , Diningroom, a big Kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a studio that also has a bed. Two bathrooms, the one that is upstairs has a bath tube and a dushcabinet and toilette, and down stairs, you can find toilet and duch separate, sauna and the laundry room with a dryer machine. Also there is a space for workout, we have an elíptic machine, some gym weights and pilates balls, also space for storage and a garage but we don’t have a car, downstairs also you can find the hobby room with a chimney and some table games, a popcorn machine and a video projector connected to the internet where you can play youtube, Netflix, etc.
We enjoy pretty much being at home, is comfortable and spacious. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The three dogs are very healthy and intense when they are playing or walk outside and very calm and sleepy around the house. Their routine is basically summarized in the morning as soon as they wake up take them out to the back yard to pee and poop, you have to be a little careful because the land is partially fenced only the left side and part of the back side but not the right side , and even that they do not usually go to the neighbor's garden, they have learned very well their space and they know their space and if the go a little bit further just calling them they obey. I usually give them a treat when they return to the call to enter back to the house and I clean their paws and in Merlot case, maybe you need to brush his legs to get rid off the snow/grass attached to his hair. Then is breakfast time! after that they usually sleep the whole morning and at noon they take their second portion of food, they go out again outside this exit is more entertaining in the sense that not only they go to the bathroom but they play jump and run a lot to discharge energy. When they need to go to the bathroom they will let yo know. if possible, one or twice a week we try to take them out for a walk. it depends weather and time.
The older one, Luna, is a very special dog. She is very sensitive and shy. She usually takes time to get close to people and she always feels responsible for the family, as well as caring and looking after everyone.
The second one, Matilda, is also very special, she was born with a malformation in her front right leg and when she was 7 months old she fell down and broke it so the leg had to be removed, but that has never stopped her to be the most intrepid and fast of all of them. She is very tender loving and always solves everything with kisses to everyone. Only she does not measure her strength, but she is very friendly and close to the people.
The third one, Merlot, he arrived without planning, is a nervous and very distracted puppy, barks at everything new and puts disorder, loves to eat the cardboard and just walks seeing what the other ones does. Lately he is very slow at eating and you have to be patient and take care of it because if not Matilda eats his food at the first distraction.
They do everything together and they look after each other always. They can eat together, sleep, go out etc. Of course if you think is difficult you can take them out one by one.
When we are outside the house, I always close the living room in other to avoid them bark at the front window. and they respect and usually sleep when we are not around.
They always try to be around someone, and maybe they will be a little bit sad at the beginnings but after a couple of days they will be following you all day!...
Enjoy!!! + More info
