Who am I?
Hi, I am Claire Babai, 24 years old. I live in a studio located in Amsterdam Oud-West, on a 10 minutes walk from Vondelpark. I recently quit my job as a recruiter to work for myself as a copywriter for e-commerce stores. The main reason why I quit my job, is becaused I missed animals around me. Since I work location independent now, I am free to work from wherever. This gives me plenty of time to be with my cocker spaniel Philippe. Other hobbies of mine are horse riding, motorcycling, salsa dancing and reading.
What is my experience?
I have a lot of experience (20+ years) with every animal you could possibly think of; horses, goats, cows, sheep, dogs, cats, rodents, birds, snakes etc. I have been crazy about every living organism since I was a little child. Unfortunately, I was never allowed to have my own pet. Stubborn as I was, I rang doorbells of neighbours to ask if I could take care of their pets. At the age of 6, I started walking my first dog. I began horse riding when I was 6 years old and quickly looked after horses for other people. At the age of 9 I began volunteering at a children's farm, which I have done for over 5 years. During a two-month holiday in Tunesia, I took care of a few stray dogs. I secretly bought my own hamster when I was 11 years old: Sisi. She would jump over obstacles for a piece of cheese =) A few years ago, when I moved to Amsterdam, I started walking and training multiple dogs at the same time. A friend of mine recommended me to others and I soon helped a lot of people with their pooches. Seeing animals behave better by the methods I use makes me feel satisfied and brings out a big passion deep inside of me. I try to keep learning and improving myself by reading books, watching documentaries and listen to the experiences of other people on a daily basis.
What can I offer you?
I walk my own dog (Philippe) between 10AM-3PM to Vondelpark every day (also on weekends). We will spend at least one hour off lead there. Philippe is really obedient and loves to play with other dogs, so I try to walk him with a furry friend as often as I can. Next to walking, I will make some professional photos of your dog which you can have for free (see photos above).
Do you live in the Oud-West area or on walking distance from Vondelpark?
I would be thrilled to have your dog join us. The walk would be at least one hour, but mostly longer. I will make sure your baby is exercised well and completely tired when he/she comes home. If there is any other thing you would like me to do, please let me know, I consider all requests.
Want your dog to join our adventures? Please feel free to write me an email. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Lots of Love,
Claire did a fantastic job taking care of our cat Priscilla while we were on holiday. The communication was excellent, we received multiple daily updates and pictures. We were able to fully relax knowing that our pet was in good hands. We will definitely book Claire again and would recommend her to anybody who is looking for a caring pet sitter!
I finished 5 obedience classes with my dog Philippe. We are now enjoying an agility course!
