Do you fancy Christmas in Switzerland with a Working Cocker Puppy?
We are and English family who live on the edge of Lake Geneva, in Nyon, Switzerland, 20 mins outside Geneva.
We have two children who are 6 and 3 and are shortly (beginning of November 2018) getting a working cocker spaniel puppy. We are all extremely excited however have hit a a stumbling block. Due to losing the first puppy we first had our name down for, we have got this one later than expected, it therefore will not be able to have its rabies jabs and tests in time for us to take it to the UK for Christmas, we therefore are looking for someone who wants to see a Swiss Christmas while enjoying cuddles with a 4 month old puppy.... she will need a bit more attention than a older dog so we would like someone who does not mind that.
Our Home & Location
Nyon is a small town and our house is on the edge of it and borders a swiss farm, so walks either into town along the 'Rive', edge of the lake, or up onto the farm are possible. A few miles up behind the house is the edge of the Jura mountains which are an easy and quick trip up to the snow and the wildness with beautiful views across lake Geneva to the Alps if the weather is good. You can explore the french part of switzerland easily from the house on the trains or by car, visiting the Christmas markets in Montreux, or experience some swiss culture in Lausanne and Geneva. It may be snowy but, if not by the lake, you will not have to drive far to find some. You do not NEED a car but it would make life simpler, especially at Christmas.
Responsibilities & Pets
As explained we would like you to look after our new puppy. We will hopefully have made large steps towards her training by then but we would like you to carry on as we have started, we will pass on the rules that we have tried to live by as a household. She will be 4 months old so should not be left alone for too long or too much but we are happy for her to accompany you on trips that she can handle.
There are no household responsibilities other than to look after the house like you would your own.
