About Ava

About me!

I have worked as a part time dog walker for 1.5 years on other similar apps and with friends' pets, along side of going to university in the US.

I am 20 years old, here studying in Amsterdam for the year, and I want to keep meeting pets and exploring with them on walks. I live away from my family dog, and I’m looking for walks and sittings that will allow me to spend time with pets during my free time, and earn some money as a university student.

I have also owned dogs and cats (and more!) all my life, and have experience working with dogs from puppies to senior dogs, as well as cats, hamsters, rabbits, and more!

Time:

I am flexible throughout the week, just working around my lecture schedule at the VU, and can easily do drop ins and walks as well as longer stays. I tend to be available in the mornings or afternoons, as well as later in the evening (after 17h). This is subject to some flexibility and will work with you to find a good time!

I am also flexible in how long the walks need to be. I can easily go on longer walks of 60+minutes, or shorter ones. I can walk quickly to make sure your pet is getting the exercise he/she needs. I have experience walking up to 3 dogs at one time, but am comfortable walking more. I can also walk your dog up to 3 times in one day.

Over the weekends, I can also supervise pets 24/7. With my lectures, I am unable to do this during the week, and would need to leave the house for up to 2 hours, but can return immediately.

My home:

Unfortunately, I am unable to care for pets in my home because my student accommodation does not allow it, but am more than happy to make the journey to your home. I am currently located near Westerpark in Amsterdam where there is a lot of outdoor space to walk, as well as off leash areas. It is a nice area, and I'm happy to take pets over this way if you are comfortable with it!

However, as I am unable to house pets in my apartment, I will definitely make the trip to wherever I am needed in the city, and learn where the pets favorite walking spots are!

In your home:

I have experience with multi week pet caring in peoples homes, as well, always ensuring that the physical space is kept as tidy (or even cleaner) than when I arrived. I can take care of your home as well as I take care of your pets, from taking out garbage or taking in the mail, watering plants and cleaning up.

During sittings at your home, I always make sure to keep to their routines, as I know how important these are for pets to feel comfortable. I am responsible, as well as loving, kind and patient. I will spend lots of time paying attention to them, walking them or playing with them at the house.

I have a lot of experience, but also a lot a lot of love for your pet already. I hope to meet you and them soon!
