About Abigail and Hans

About us:
We are a Finnish/English couple in our mid to late twenties, that moved to Amsterdam a year ago. we both grew up with dogs around all our life, and we can both definitely say that our dogs were our best friends! We are both currently at universit, which means that we have plenty of time to spend at home looking after dogs and pets, that is why we took up pet sitting! We enjoy the company of dogs and love to spend time with them! We are open to looking after dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes. 

What we offer:
Our goal for every pet that we look after is to take care of them as if they were our own. We always try to ensure that we look after pets from one household at a time; this means that we are able to give your pet our full attention and avoid any issues! We live in a big, 100 square meter apartment, with a park right next to our house and great dog walking areas around! There is even a lake close by, so if your pet enjoys swimming we can take then out for a splash (don't worry, if your dog gets all muddy and dirty, we are able to give them a wash, so that you will get a nice clean and good smelling dog back home)! If you have any questions about us, feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to answer any of your questions!

Note: 
If your pet breaks something or makes a mess, there will be an additional charge.
Even though we are a couple, this doesn't guarantee that one of us will be at home all of the time to supervise. This would mean that your pet should be comfortable with being left alone for a few hours.

Dog walks:
We love walkies! We offer a 1 hour dog walk, where we abide by your dogs pace and needs. Your dog will have plenty of time to do their business and have a good sniff around. If your dog isn't too social and can be a bit iffy around other dogs, just let us know and what tricks work for your dog to distract them (treats, sticks?). Your dog will come back home from a nice walk feeling relieved and happy!

Hans:
Hello! I am Hans, someone who loves dogs and talks about them pretty much daily. I am an only child but my family had a cairn terrier (Rudi) who was like a brother to me. I am happy to say that I was able to spend 14 years with him and during those years I came to love dogs, not just Rudi, but many others that I have encountered and spent time with.

Abigail:
Hi, I'm Abigail! I've grown up with dogs around all my life. During my life there has only been 2 years when there wasn't a dog in my family home, and I can honestly say that those were the dullest years! I love spending time with dogs, whether it be going out for walks, brushing their coat, teaching new tricks, or just spending time together and cuddling. Apart from having my own dogs, there has been a large array of different dogs and breeds with different temperaments in my family.

Abby and Hans are the perfect dogsitters! Our dog had a lovely relaxed evening at their place and they took great care of her, as always. Thank you both!

Specific Skills

I speak English & German & Swedish & Finnish
+20 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
We have looked after reactive dogs (reactive towards other dogs, animals, people, surroundings), and have experience with dogs that show aggressive behaviour towards other dogs. As far as dog training techniques, we have both taught various different basic commands to our own dogs. If your dog has any specific commands they know, we would be interested in knowing what they are! We have looked after rescue dogs, and Abigail used to have a dog that she had adopted.
