Cute and crazy puppy, in a fabulous flat in desirable part of lovely London. What's not to love!
I am primary school teacher and holistic therapist living in London with my daughter Lola and cute furbaby Casper. I have the opportunity to do a voluntary programme in Spain in August, helping Spanish people speak English. This is why I am looking for someone to pet sit.
In October I am co-ordinating a trip on the south coast for a group of single parents and their children. Unfortunately, my puppy isn't able to come on either of these trips.
Our Home & Location
I live in Muswell Hill, which is a desirable area in North London, with Highgate, Crouch End and Hampstead nearby. While there is no tube right here, it's a short bus ride to the Northern Line (Highgate) and Piccadilly Line (Bounds Green). The centre of Muswell Hill has a vibrant village feel but is home to some lovely restaurants (around 10 at the last count) and small but decent sized Waitrose, M&S and Sainsbury's. I live 5 minutes walk to the woods, where I go for lovely dog walks if I'm not going further afield. Hampstead is also just 10 minutes away in a car and is a lovely place to walk the dog and have a cup of tea and cake! It takes just 30 minutes to get to Euston and Kings Cross and not much more to get to other places within London, where there is, of course so much to see and do.
Like many people in London, I live in a flat and sadly I don't have use of the garden. My little boy is happy with 1 walk a day so it doesn't pose huge problems. My flat is lovely and spacious, with a huge living room with big sash windows. In the afternoon the sun floods in and it's lovely to chill on the sofa or read. I also have a digital piano which sitters are welcome to use. There is one bathroom (no en-suite) and a large kitchen....
I've said that a car is not needed but it can be useful for getting to some places. Having said that, many people survive perfectly well in London without one. I'm just a bit lazy! + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would just be looking after Casper, my 8 month old Schichon boy. That would involve giving him a walk every day or two if that's what you like to do. He also needs a brush or a comb but onnly every few days. He's very funny, a little stubborn but absolutely full of character. I have a few plants that might need watering too.
