Hello fellow pet parents, I'm Chris!
I'm hoping to be your pet's best new buddy! I'm 35 and originally from the United States, born in California. I moved to Amsterdam from Seattle, WA with my husband late last year. While my husband works from home remotely, I'm currently not working so I can spend all day with your dog or cat!
My experience with animals is informal, but I adore them. I've taken care of and been a parent to dogs, cats, birds, turtles, fish, snakes and lizards. At home we have a 12 year old rescue dog named Whicket who's a large black lab/wirehair mix. She's still very energetic for her age and rather rough-and-tumble when we play and explore the city. I also have a sweet cat, Gordon, an 11 year old Tonkinese/Siamese. He is gentle and affectionate, playful and very talkative!
I know that taking care of a pet is a deeply personal task and I do not take that responsibility lightly. I've used services to watch my pets many times in the past while away from home and understand the importance of choosing someone you can trust. You can't relax wondering if your baby is doing okay when you're gone (at least I can't!), and I'm very sympathetic to that.
I offer walks, in-home visits, and full-day or overnight stays in your home to sit your pets and the house itself. I'm available morning, afternoon and in the early evening.
-Walks would last 45 minutes and set at the pace of your dog.
-Daytime visits would last 45 minutes to one hour. Attention and love are included along with basics like feeding and refreshing water, letting your pets out to relieve themselves during a walk, and cleaning the litter box. If oral medication is needed I'm happy to administer it!
-Overnight stays would conisist of me staying in your house with your pet, with them not being left alone for more than a few hours at a time. I can also do routine house sitting chores (watering plants, collecting mail, etc.) so please let me know what you require. I can walk them 3 times daily, about 45 minutes each (depending on weather). Whether they like to get their energy out on park trails or have a partner for zoomies around the house, I'm there!
During visits and stays, expect photos and updates with your pet each day! Please note I'm not able to board them at my home because my own pets get too jealous ;)
All sizes, all ages, all personalities welcome. Looking forward to meeting you and spending some quality time with your furbaby!
Great job Chris! Brian was so well behaved with you, and it sounded like the two of you hit it off. Chris took great care to do his very best for my dog during his 2-night stay. He requested information about Brian up front so that he knew all the details before arriving. He made sure to double-check everything during his stay, and sent me a ton of photos and updates over the two days he was with Brian. He left my apartment tidy and clean. Thanks so much, Chris!
Chris was great. Our cat was very happy in his company. We will definitely use him again!
