Hi, I'm Gerylaine!
Hi there! I'm a recent master's graduate from the University of Amsterdam, and currently an intern at a non-profit in Amsterdam. I provide pet sitting services including dog walking, dog care (in your home or mine), and cat care. Although I'm not a professional, I'm a very experienced pet owner. Througout my life I have raised over 40 puppies, taken care of 12 mature dogs, and 16 cats (my family loves animals). I've also volunteered for and led an animal welfare group in which students volunteer at animal shelters. Although my home is tiny, as they say in Dutch klein maar fijn, I live near several parks and have access to beautiful green spaces within walking distance.
I joined Pawshake because I have wanted to become a dog-mom for quite some time now, but I haven't been able to because I travel quite often. Currently I'm preparing to go on a big trip next year, so I figured I would do the next best thing - sign up for Pawshake!
You can rest assured that at every visit I will feed your pets, give them plenty of clean water, clean up after them (including litter boxes and poops during walks), give them all the attention they want, and send you pics of your pet if you'd like. There is also a large community of pet owners in my building, so if you're interested in having your pet go on play dates I can also arrange for them to spend time with some furry friends.
