Description

I am living on the beautiful island Sal in Cabo Verde, an archipelago about 600km west of West Africa in the Atlantic. I have been living here for 3 years and in this time adopted 2 former street dogs. At the end of September, I will be visiting family and friends back in Europe and am therefore looking for someone to stay in my apartment and take care of my 2 beloved dogs Kuishi (female, 2.5 years old) and Lawrence (male, 5 years old). The apartment is equipped with all basics (oven, stove, washing machine, WiFi etc. ) and the balcony is facing the ocean. I am looking for someone who is experienced with dogs and would be happy to take good care of them in this beautiful spot. TUI is offering direct flights from many European airports but also TAP will fly via Lisbon.

Property Type: Apartment / Flat / Unit
Responsibilities: The dogs: They are used to 2 bigger walks, one early in the morning and one later between 16 and 18h. During the day, it tends to get too hot for them and they will refuse to go outside most of the time. The morning walk is usually around 1 hour while the evening walk can be anything between 1.5-3 hours. Feeding in the mornings and evenings. They can be home alone for up to 5 hours a day. The apartment is nice and basic, just needs regular cleaning as we are living on a desert island and it tends to get a little dusty.
Points of interest: Beach
Things to know: September is a hot month here in Sal but also mid turtle nesting season which is a phenomenal experience. I have a good network of friends here who will be available if needed. The dogs are very easy-going, even though the male tends to show some aggression towards other male dogs when unleashed but we are working on this at the moment. On the leash there's never been any problems. Cabo Verde is not EU so you will need a passport with at least 6 months before expiry date to enter the country. The standard tourist visa is for 30 days. Sal is a popular surf spot, particulary kitesurfing - however, the kitesurf season usually picks up at the end of October as winds are relatively low in September. Surfing is better in September.
