  • Description


    Looking for a dogsitter for my lovely 15,5 year old Bearded Collie in Hoorn. During the summer I am also looking for a house and dogsitter. For the other months I can really do with an extra person around whom can be with Willow when I am away and enables me to go away for more then just a couple of hours.

    My house is spacious with a beautiful view over the lake and a big balcony. Free use of everything I have, like: WiFi, bikes, kayak, Xbox One, books etc etc. Close to Amsterdam and easily reached by car (free parking) and/or public transport. Willow (dog) can stay alone for a couple of hours a day, so you have time to move around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Hoorn is a small but lovely town with an old historical city center with a rich history, Surrounding is the country side and close by is the Beemster which is on the UNESCO heritage list. Several interesting museums nearby (like the outdoor museum in Enkhuizen). You can explore the area by one of my bikes, kayak or public transportation.

    You will have to walk my dog and feed her, give her attention and love. She can stay alone for a bit so you have freedom to move. She can not walk for long ends at a time anymore.
