I am originally from the USA and have been living in Hamburg, Germany for 15 years. I currently live in Altona with my 2 year old daughter and little ex street dog, Preta. I love Preta but want to travel and need someone to come and live in our lovely flat to take care of her when we are out of town in July 19-25 and or 28.07-01.08.
Preta is old and sweet, but cannot hold her urine very well. The person who cares for her needs to be accepting of this. She sometimes has accidents in the house and needs to wear a diaper in the stair well so that there are no accidents. Unfortunately I can take her out 6 times a day and this will still happen. Other than that she is a tough to lead on a leash. Some people have it easier with her than others. Being confident and kind with dogs is a good disposition to have for Preta. Nevertheless, I think it would be a great opportunity for someone to see Hamburg in exchange for just a bit of work. Preta can be left alone, as a matter of fact, she likes her peace and quiet. So you have lots of freedom!
They will immerse themselves in Hamburg and maybe brush up on their German. Walking a dog in a new place is a great way to learn about the environment.
