About this assignment



I live in Torino Italy a beautiful city at the foot of the Alps. I am just 1 .15 hours by train to the Alps and 1.5 hours to the beach. I am centrally located so no car is needed, all can be reached on foot, or the trams and buses 2 blocks away. This is the home of Caffe and Chocolate. The Piemonte region for wine is also a short train away. Excellent wines in this region. In Italy you can bring your dog everywhere and my guy goes everywhere, cafe,restaurant,parks,buses,cinema,hotels,yep everywhere but the opera!

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Keep it clean and take care of my sweet dog Thats it. I expect the house to be as clean as it was when I left. My dog is very friendly and will show you the city and the walks he likes, mostly along the river 2 blocks away. Here in Italy dogs are welcome everywhere, cafes, restaurants, the cinema, just not the museums. He likes to go with you everywhere too! He can go on weekend or day trips with you as the trains and hotels take dogs happily. There is lots to do and much to explore. Chico is an easy dog, he like lots of petting, and attention. He remembers everyone and they remember him.

What are the good features of the property and location

Italy 1 hour train to beach, mountains and Langhe wine country. Walking distance to all markets, shopping, the river Po and everything in the city.

Torino and Chico

Torino is such a beautiful city and Chico was my guide to lots of beautiful places there. He is a delightful little guy and a pleasure to care for. Brenda supplied lots of information about Chico and great city walks and places to visit, even arranging for a friend to take me to a wine tasting in the countryside. The apartment in very central, close to the beautiful Piazza Vittorio Veneto and within walking distance to many city sites that Chico and I explored together.

Wonderful host, gorgeous dog, amazing housesit!

We were so lucky to spend an amazing month in Turin (Torino) Italy looking after gorgeous Chico. We formed instant friends with Brenda who is so welcoming, generous, fun and a fellow lover of animals, travelling & adventure. Brenda was well organised & showed us around Turin on our first day. She cooked us the most delicious vegan food with Italian wine! Brenda thoughtfully arranged for a friend to take us on a wine day & continually sent us details of events in Turin. The apartment is comfortable & in the perfect position for exploring Turin. We walked everywhere in Turin & there are many other places only an easy train ride away. Turin has so many museums, beautiful architecture & the most delicious cheap food & wine. Who could not fall in love with Chico? He is so easy to look after & get attached to - we miss him so much! We thoroughly enjoyed his company on all our adventures. We will definitely keep in contact with our new friends from Italy! We feel so fortunate to have experienced such a wonderful house/petsit.

Wonderful woman and a very cute dog!

We are so glad that we had the opportunity to stay with Brenda longer than we expected to be able to know each other better and become friends. Anyone would be lucky to get to know Brenda and to spend time with her very amusing dog Chico (although I do hope that the next time she needs a pet-sitter that would be us;). Chico is the easiest dog to care for. He'd be happy to sleep with you if you allow him to and he adores belly-rubbing:) In Italy you can go with a dog anywhere and you never have to worry, because Chico knows how to behave and everybody just loves him. We miss you guys very much already and are looking forward to seeing you soon, in Torino, or any other place on the globe!
