About Gary

***I'm now fully booked for Christmas and New Year***

Thanks to my childhood spent in the Hampshire countryside in the UK, I've always loved being surrounded by animals. Since moving to the Netherlands, I've become the proud owner of two majestic Maine Coons (Klaus en Beatrix) and as of September, I now have the adorable Max, a puppy we rescued from the streets of Romania.

Having grown up with not just dogs and cats, but house rats, horses, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, fish, a cockatiel and a ferret, I'm happy to look after a multitude of animals. I'm also very happy to help with cat grooming if needed, including nail trimming. I'm about to embark on an Animal Healthcare course and so any extra, practical experience is very welcome. I miss having a dog around, and having used Pawshake myself when I've needed help with my cats, I thought it would be a great way to help others who need assistance.

I often work at home and can usually accommodate last minute bookings. While I can only host small dogs which are good with other dogs and cats, I am more than happy to come and visit your pets in your home once or twice a day, or stay overnight if required. I live very close to the Vondelpark which is useful for dog walking, but am able and willing to help those in the neighbouring districts too and am familiar with Westerpark and Rembrandt Park too.

All dog breeds are welcome, as are any dogs with behavioural issues.

***Ik ben nu volledig volgeboekt voor Kerstmis en Nieuwjaar***

Dankzij mijn jeugd doorgebracht op het platteland van Hampshire in het Verenigd Koninkrijk, heb ik er altijd van gehouden om omringd te zijn door dieren. Sinds ik naar Nederland ben verhuisd, ben ik de trotse eigenaar geworden van twee majestueuze Maine Coons (Klaus en Beatrix) en vanaf september heb ik nu de schattige Max, een puppy die we hebben gered uit de straten van Roemenië.

Ik ben opgegroeid met niet alleen honden en katten, maar ook met huisratten, paarden, konijnen, gerbils, hamsters, vissen, een valkparkiet en een fret. Ik ben blij om voor veel dieren te zorgen, niet alleen voor honden en katten. Ik ben ook erg blij om te helpen met kattenverzorging, indien nodig, inclusief nagelknipsel. Ik sta ook op het punt om een ​​cursus 'Animal Healthcare' te volgen en daarom is elke extra praktische ervaring van harte welkom. Ik mis het hebben van een hond en heb Pawshake zelf gebruikt toen ik hulp nodig had met mijn katten, ik dacht dat het een geweldige manier zou zijn om anderen te helpen.

Ik werk vaak thuis en kan meestal last-minute boekingen verwerken. Hoewel ik alleen kleine honden kan hosten die goed zijn met andere honden en katten, ben ik meer dan blij om uw huisdieren één of twee keer per dag bij u thuis te komen bezoeken en ik ben ook heel blij dat ik met de hond mag lopen. Ik woon heel dicht bij het Vondelpark, maar ben ook in staat en bereid om mensen in de naburige districten te helpen.

Alle hondenrassen zijn welkom, evenals honden met gedragsproblemen.

Gary is an excellent pet sitter. He’s very available and he took great care of my 2 cats. Everyday, I received photos and videos and it was really reassuring to see thay both cats seems so weel and enjoy themselves. My cats were comfortable with Gary right away which is rare. I would recommend Gary anytime.

The best pet sitter out there! Without exaggeration, I'm sure our cats were a little upset when we returned from the trip and they saw us and not Gary. He took good care of the cats (there were 1 adult cat and 2 kittens of her, and a young kitten of 6 months). Also the feeding was good, there were no unexpected changes in cats weight (we had such issues with other pet sitters before). The toilets were clean, everything in order, just as you'd like it to be. Highly recommended as a professional and kind pet sitter!
