We are a 34-year-old couple who live and work in the north of Spain, in San Sebastián.  We have a mixed breed dog, 20 kilos and 15 years old.  Despite his advanced age, he is healthy and does not require any special care.  The only handicap is that he has an urgency to urinate, which means that when going to take him out into the street, he sometimes has the urge to urinate, so we take him out with a diaper, to prevent him from dirtying the stairs of the building. He can do this once in a month, besides that we take him out always with the diaper. At home he never urinates. We take him for walks 3 times a day.  

We are planning a two-week trip to Nepal, and considering this problem and his age, we would like him to be able to stay calm at home, instead of taking him to a dog hotel.  He gets along well with all kinds of animals, although he prefers to be left alone. Being older, he no longer seeks to play with other dogs and if he is bothered a lot, he can growl, but he is never aggressive, he just wants to be left his space.  He loves and adores humans, he is very affectionate and quite dependent, he will always seek to be close to a human.  He has cataracts and a little deafness, so we don't release him on the street anymore.

Our house is located in the center of the city, so it has many services nearby (restaurants, bars, supermarkets) and you can walk everywhere.  The beach is a 10-minute walk away.  It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room and kitchen, it has about 70 m2.

For any questions do not hesitate to contact us! 

Hugo, Marta and Ramon.

Hello future sitters,

So what can we share that can be beneficial for you?

It would be good to know that their apartment is really nicely decorated and mostly quiet - perfect for a solo sitter or a couple. If you plan to work from home, you will have a good internet connection and plenty of space and comfort. The location is wonderful. quiet yet central.

The hosts are a lovely and generous young couple. They really wanted us to feel at home and welcome and we really appreciate it, especially knowing it was their first time. They were very easy to communicate with before and during our dog-sitting time.

The city of San Sebastien was amazing! It has the beach, the mountains for short or long hiking and lots of shops and restaurants so anyone can find something to do. No matter what, you should include this city in your next travel plans.

But let's talk about what's really important here - Ramon! I really can't describe how much we connected with him, he's just so sweet and kind, a really sensitive and beautiful soul! Overall he's low maintenance, never had behavior issues toward us or others and he loves human company and attention (so better give him lots of hugs!). He's a bit old so he needed diapers when leaving the house but it really was very easy to handle. Like all animals, he has his own special personality so no way you wouldn't love him, we really had a great experience with him! 

Long story short, if you get the chance - go for it, 100% recommended!!
