Hello, I'm Yookyung!
I'm living and working in Amsterdam, since I moved here in 2011 to study Fine Art at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. I work at home, as a translator.
Growing up we always had dogs in my family home, so I'm very good with dogs. I only had a cat for a short period, but my boyfriend knows about cats very well, since his family always had cats.
We would love to have dogs and cats, but we want to wait until we have our own house.
I sometimes take care of my friend's dog, when they go on a holiday. His name is Ralphie. (the black dog seen in my pictures.)
I live just near Flevopark, where I usually take him for walks. Our house is on the first floor, has a long balcony, is spacious and very calm since it's only me and my boyfriend who's living there.
Another experience with petsitting is with Zip and Kotje, our good friend's family pets. When her family goes on a holiday we go to their family house in Alkmaar, taking care of Zip and Kotje. Zip is the border collie in the pictures and Kotje is the cat seen in the last picture. Zip is a very active dog, so we like to bike with him to the countryside, and go for long walks. He also loves to jump in the water, so we make sure to bring a ball to throw in the water for him. Kotje is a rather independent cat, who likes to be left alone, so we just keep an eye on her, and make sure that there is always enough food and water for her.
Furthermore, since I'm quite addicted to watching animal rescue shows and dog training videos, I have learned a lot about the body language and behavior of dogs.
I hope I can help you, and get to meet your furry friends.
Was an excellent sitter for our two dogs, Duke and Lady. Both of the dogs enjoyed the stay with Yook and Martin. She sent us great pictures and communicated frequently, so we knew they were in great hands. If I need to go somewhere again in the future, I will contact her again and I highly recommend her. Thank you very much for taking care of our dogs.
