  • Descripción




    we are 2 german emigrants. Since February 2019 we live in Guatemala City. In July 2019 we have taken a funny & wild street dog, Caipi. She is very friendly, playful, full of energy and loves nature.

    My name is Svenja (33), and besides travelling and sports I love to write down all my travel experiences on my travel blog
    My partner Georg (38) is a teacher at the German School in Guatemala City and teaches math. That is also the reason why we moved to Guatemala. He is working during the week from the early morning until evening.

    We are very open and helpful people and would describe ourselves as quite uncomplicated. We also love to have guests and to connect with people from all around the world.

    We live in a very peaceful & nice neighborhood in Guatemala City (ZONA 15). In our beautiful penthouse apartment you can enjoy a stunning view over the city, you can enjoy and relax in our hammocks. You will have your own room with your own bathroom.

    Sometimes we are on vacation, sometimes we do a weekend trip without Caipi. Then we need a full-time dog sitter.

    We need somebody who takes care about our dog Caipi, when we are not around. Sometimes it is just a weekend, sometimes in our holidays for some weeks. Sometimes I travel by myself, Georg will work, so we need you to be there for the dog during the week.

    ➳ A DOG SITTER FOR 1 DOG (Caipi) FOR 1 WEEK full-time from 10TH of SEPTEMBER - 20TH OF SEPTEMBER AND FROM NOVEMBER TO JANUARY FOR 2 MONTH! We will be on holiday and need you for DOG- & HOUSESITTING! We could offer you a car to explore the area a bit if you are a good driver and a responsible person who knows how to travel with a dog!

    Y.O.U.R J.O.B:
    Working-time: WHEN WE ARE NOT AROUND you are here as a full-time dogsitter. So you are responsible for Caipi during the day. Walk Caipi in the morning, midday (longer) and maybe evening. Give her food (dog-dry-food) and water. Play with her, cuddle her, open the balcony door, so she can go out. You don't have to be around them all the time! In between you have leisure time, to chill, read, work online, whatever...).

    ➳ You must love dogs.
    ➳ It would be good if you already have a knowledge about dogs & if you are used to dogs.
    ➳ You should be a trustful, friendly, open-minded person who knows how to live together with other people.
    ➳ You must be flexibel. Maybe Georg wants to go out in the evening for a bit & needs you to stay at home.

    ➳ We would like to get to know you before we give you the okay. So a WhatsApp call or a Skypedate would be great.

    ➳ UBER is safe and cheap here. So by Uber you can drive around the city and explore.

    ➳ If you WORK ONLINE, you can do it also in between you take care of the dog. The WIFI is good in our apartment.

    ➳ November - April is the dry season in Guatemala. So the weather is perfect :) Normally it has around 25°C and sunshine during the day.
