My name is Izzie, I’m 21 years old and I’m currently in my first year of a European Studies Bachelors at UVA in Amsterdam.
Originally I am from Oxford, where I have a dog (Brea) and two cats (Pip and Albert) that I miss a lot! I have always loved animals and have worked in a dog grooming salon and as a dog walker over the years, I’ve also volunteered at a stables and at an animal shelter where I rescued my two cats from. Honestly I just take any chance I can get to be close to animals.
As a pet sitter I would provide the basics but also lots of cuddles and play time which I really enjoy. I also love to go for runs so could potentially take an active pet with me but I’m also just as happy to sit on the sofa and give affection. As I’ve worked in a dog grooming salon and an animal shelter I can wash and groom your pets and also am equipped to deal with any situations. My dog at home is a border collie who I house trained and taught many tricks to, she used to compete in agility competitions, so that could be something else I offer.
As a student I have quite flexible hours but a lot independent study time, so if house sitting I would be spending a lot of time keeping your pet company. I also live with two other students who are also animal mad, so I’m sure they would be happy to help. I know how important my pets are to me and my family so would aim to treat yours with the utmost care. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
In case of dog boarding, I have also added photos of my apartment where the pets will be. I live with two other female roommate who also love dogs. We are all non-smokers and currently studying at home due to COVID so there is a lot of cuddles to go round. I am happy for the dog to sleep with me in the bedroom unless otherwise advised by the owner :)
Communication was great and she was punctual. Izzie was excellent with Rody to the point that she didn’t want Izzie to leave. Since she had obviously to go back home, Rody decided to sit and observe how she was walking away until she couldn’t see her anymore. Definitely we will call Izzie again! Fully recommended.
