Panorama lake view in a lovely house with a wonderful doggie family
Hi there, we are looking for dog loving and trustworthy house- and dog sitters for our home and 6 dogs in Beinwil am See / Switzerland. We live in a spacious house with a splendid open view over Lake Hallwyl, Lake Baldegger and the Swiss Alps from all rooms in the house. Our house has a lovely garden with lake view as well where you can relax and unwind.
You can walk our furry friends near fields and forests and enjoy the lake view at the same time. One of our dogs, Namwaan, is quite old and doesn't like to go on walks any more and prefers just to go out in the garden. Mocca and Daeng are also senior dogs while Molly and Dolly are 10 and Jalu 3 years old. Ideally a couple/family or two friends would be ideal as sitters to be able to comfortably walk 3 dogs on a leash comfortably....
As one of our dogs has diabetes, experience with giving injections is an advantage, but we could also give you an introduction (I was quite apprehensive about it but it’s very easy to learn and handle). We are non-smokers and we'd appreciate if smokers would only smoke outside the house. + More info
Our Home & Location
We live in a lovely and spacious 2 floor house on the hillside with modern facilities and a panorama view over Lake Hallwyl. The garden is fully equipped with garden furniture and a barbecue station for relaxed hours outside. During winter time you can enjoy the fire place. The beautiful historical towns of Lucerne, Bern, Zurich or Aarau can be reached by trains or car easily within 30 - 60 minutes. We have 6 wonderful and friendly rescued dogs who love cuddles, walks and hanging around with their human friends.
The idyllic hilly countryside around the lake, the medieval castles of Hallwyl, Lenzburg, Heidegg and others with its heritage exhibitions, and the romantic boat trips round the lake make Lake Hallwil and the nearby Seetal valley a wonderful nature area. In addition to the scheduled service, there are also special tours such as Sunday brunch trips or gourmet rides....
No building is allowed on the banks of Lake Hallwil, so the walk round the lake passes through an impressive natural landscape. There are just a few kilometres of the walk that are not immediately beside the shore, because that part is a nature conservation area. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
2 walks per day for 5 of the dogs / feeding twice a day / checking blood sugar level and giving Insulin injections 2 x per day to our goldie Mocca (surprisingly easy to handle even if you don’t have experience) / watering flowers.
Our dogs love company and should not be left alone more than approx. 5 hours a day.
