Joey the terrier in the Swiss Alps
Hi there, we are a Swedish and Australian family with two young boys and a dog. We live close to Grindelwald which is a famous ski and hiking destination. Both of us work from home with computer programming and marketing consulting. We enjoy hiking, snow sledding, reading, having guests over and cooking and learning languages.
Our Home & Location
We have a chalet with two apartments. One upstairs where we live with approx 50m2 and downstairs we have a rental apartment that we also use for family and friends which is 25m2. It takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the train station from our house and 10 minutes by train to Grindelwald. You can find the downstairs apartment on airbnb where we are superhosts.
Responsibilities & Pets
We would need help with taking care of Joey, our Parson Russel terrier. He is 5 years old and still very energetic. He absolutely loves people, cats not so much. He needs at least two big walks a day of around 45-60 minutes. We usually walk with him in the morning and in the evening and he is very flexible with the times. He can stay at home for many hours alone provided he has had a good, long walk in the morning. Other responsibilities is just to leave the house the way you found it, so some light cleaning before you leave.
