I am Daan, a dutch psychologist and animal lover. I volunteered for a while at the dog asylum Dieren Opvang Amsterdam and took care of dogs of elderly and disabled people for a special program of "De Dierenbescherming -The Dutch Society for the Protection of Animals". There i also had some workshops and training in animal behaviour and dogtraining.
I love all furry animals and especially the big dogs. I can handle them because i am tall, strong and confident, and most dogs are quickly at ease around me. In the asylum we also work with more difficult dogs therefore I know how important it is to be loving, patient, strict and follow any provided instructions.
If I walk or sit your dog I would like to cuddle and play with them and take them outside. I love being outdoors and going into nature and with a dog it’s even more fun!!
I live next to the Amstel River so there are a lot of green areas around and i’m very close to the Frankendael park.
I live with a roommate, who also happens to be crazy about dogs. If your dog stays in our home overnight he/she can move around the hallway, kitchen, balcony and the living/bedroom and sleep on some big soft blankets on the couch or the floor, or in her own dog basket. To enter my home your dog has to be able to get (carried) up 10 steps on the stairs.
My services include walking your dog, visiting or sitting in my or your home, feed your dog, play with him/her and give medication if needed (pills/liquids). I will also keep you updated with photos and videos so that you know that your dog is in good hands with me!
Daan was very helpful and attentive to any details I had in mind about the specific character features of my dog... Walther was at ease with Daan 1 min after they've met! I was almost jealous. Daan knows his way around dogs and I think they both liked each other. The communication with Daan is always pleasant and easy and I have already booked his help after this. So can only highly recommend.
Daan took care of my dog for a night. The communication was good and the moment I brought my dog, he was at ease immediately. Daan also listened carefully to any advice I gave him in regards to my dog and he updated me with pictures and text during the stay.
He also lives close by the metro and train station, making it easy for people with no car like me. I will definitely reach out to Daan again if I ever need a sitter again :-)
