  • Description


    Hey I'm Jeannette.
    I have 2 little Scotty/Miniature Schnauzer brothers who need some love, company and walking whilst my daughter and I go visit my son in the Netherlands. We hope to leave 20 July and return 27 July.
    Haven't seen my son since December!!
    Pups are 9 years old, need minimal exercise as Dougal has a knee and hip problem. they are very friendly.

    Our home is a large modern house in the village of Dunvegan Isle of Skye, within walking distance of Dunvegan Castle.
    I have hosted several workaways - from Italy, France, Brazil, Australia, South Africa and Italy.

    Skye can be stunning all year round - ideal opportunity for a keen photographer. A car can possibly be made available so that you will be able to explore our island and give the pups walks in different areas.

    You must love my 2 wee dogs as much as I do and enjoy excercising them gently for about 1 hour per day. They are used to having company and are very sociable.

    What else ...

    Dunvegan is a village in the North West of Skye - we have transport links to Portree and the mainland, I have a happy solitary home and have always welcomed strangers into the house. Not much goes on in Dunvegan - We have a pub - and some restaurants.
    I am a smoker and smoke in my kitchen and lounge.
