I had dogs growing up and now am solely responsible for my own one year old cockapoo, Benson. Together we have been to (and passed) basic training And we continue to train together every day! I love dogs and have dog sat many dogs in the past. I’m also happy to check On your cat or other animals- I had mice and cats growing up. Benson and I take at least 3 walks a day of 20mins to an hour so you can assure your dog will have plenty of exercise and attention. When the weather isn’t great, we also play a lot inside. Benson’s favorite game is ripping up cardboard boxes but we also play tug, fetch and search among other games. Benson is very friendly but of course like people, some dogs are not a good fit so for overnight stays we would need to make sure they are a good match.
I will be working from home/working less days for the next couple of months at least so would be happy to look after your dog on the days I am at home. My house has a large balcony for Amsterdam standards and dogs are free to snooze outside, on the couch (inside or out) or on one of the many dog beds I have around the house. I don’t have a backyard but am 1 minute away from the Ringdijk (off leash dog area next to the canal) and less than 5 minutes walk from frankendael park which also has a nice off-leash area.
I am at home most of the day and wouldn’t leave the dogs for more than a couple of hours. Sometimes my flat mate, also experienced in dog sitting will look after the dog(s) for short periods if I cannot leave them alone. I can offer pick-up/drop-off if you are in walking distance and can also offer extended hours for dogs with separation anxiety and working owners.
My walks are around 45 minutes, depending on the dog’s needs and I always make sure they are settled with fresh water when I drop them back home.
Looking forward to making some new dog (and cat) friends soon!
Julie has been great with our pup Jessica. She's been very patient with her. Jessica obvious loved being with her and her dog Benson. Communication with Julie was very good. We felt very comfortable to leave Jessica in her care.
As usual staying with Julie was the best plan for Tica. She LOVES going with her!
