General description

  • Main home
We live in a terraced home right in the center of Leuven. It's 5 minutes away from the main shopping streets, 10 minutes away from the train station, and we have several bus stops. Our home has been partly renovated but some rooms, including the living room, still need some work to make them homier. However, we have a fully fitted kitchen and a very large comfortable sofa. We have two bikes (one electric) that you can use during your stay. Our bedroom has been completely renovated and will be quite comfortable for you to stay in.

Our dog, a 2,5 year old greyhound, is very sensitive and has trouble walking in the busy streets around our home. We have several places in the area where he can be off leash in nature (all fenced in), but you need a car to take him there. Therefore, we could only work with someone who can come here by car or is willing to rent a car for the duration of their stay. He's a very sweet, goofy boy, who likes to run fast and then nap for the rest of the day. However, he is afraid of children (will bark at them) and doesn't like strangers trying to pet him. If you have experience with sighthounds, that's a big bonus!

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A dog
We're looking for someone who has experience with large dogs. Sighthound experience is a big plus, as is someone who knows how to work with dogs who 'spook' easily. Our boy has trouble filtering all the noises/smells/sounds around our home in the city center, and needs a daily walk in nature to decompress. He is very social towards other dogs and people he knows, but is scared of children and doesn't want strangers touching him.
