We are both students living in the center of Amsterdam.Because of studying and traveling, we have decided it’s not the right time to take on our own adorable fuzzy friend, but we can’t stop drooling over every dog we see and every street cat we pass!
Pawshake is a great way to be able to satisfy our love for pets, be active and go to different parts of the city, and also not have to have the responsibility of our own full time pet! You could say it’s the purr-fect situation!;) Maddie has two sweet pups back in America, but after traveling the world for 3 years and finally settling in Amsterdam with Martijn, decided the girls(the pups!) would be more comfortable in the big backyard in the countryside where they grew up. Maddie has also had one cat, a horse and a guinea pig, whom are no longer with us. Despite Martijn not having grown up with a furry friend (only a turtle), he has found his love/obsession for animals and now can't imgaine life without them! Every dog/cat has their own personality and we love getting to know them and hope that they see our place as a second home.
Services we offer include taking pets to our place for a couple of days or going to your apartment a couple of times a day to take your beloved on walks to the park, some play time, and of course cover basic daily needs like feeding, walking, and cleaning. We think it’s important to know while you can’t be there to offer that special attention your pet’s needs, someone else is, because they think it’s a lot of fun!!!
We are not currently accepting full time bookings (long term, every weekday comitments) as we are students and also have many repeating clients which we give priority to.
It was the first time that we left our puppy Sakura with someone and I really happy with Madeline and Martijn! They were the extra mile to make all the stay smooth. They took really well care of Sakura and were constantly communicating with us through pictures and updates.
Definitely We recommend them and we feel that we found a trusted pet sitters for our doggie
We can tell Ringo had a great time with Martijn and Madeline. Communication was perfect! Definitely recommended! 😊
Patience, knowledge of training techniques. Light experience with dog with anxiety. Most importantly, a true love of all animals!!!!
