About Britta

Hello!
My name is Britta and I am selfemployed in the field of personal and health development, mainly hosting retreats and workshops worldwide. In between, I also support people online, I created for example a mindfulness online course, recorded meditations etc., so I love writing and creating helpful content.

During my whole childhood we had cats and even at that time I pet sitted additionally a lot (dogs, smaller animals like hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits etc.).

So far I don´t have reviews here on www.pawshake, that´s why I additionally put in some reviews of former hosts from the Airbnb platform and from another petsitting platform, so that you can get an impression:

Airbnb:
"One of the best strangers I ever met, in fact it didn't feel like having a stranger in my home. Britta is a great guest to have, I just can not pin down the right words to describe how good the experience was. I strongly recommend her."

"Britta was a really nice guest. Totally uncomplicated. She kept everything tidy and clean. I cannot think of any reason not to host her. Definetely recommend her as a guest!!!"

"It was such a pleasure to have Britta as a guest. She is very nice, friendly, enthusiastic, sweet, interesting, warm, inspiring, smart, open; a lovely person. Communication was perfect and she is very clean and tidy. Britta is definitely one of my favourite guests ever! Would love to see her again one day! Very much recommended."

Petsitting platform:

"Britta really was the PURRfect pet sitter. She bonded with my kitty and gave me peace of mind with plenty of photos, videos, and even an audio file of loud purring. My house was in perfect order when I returned, with clean bed linens and everything tidy. Britta even left me a yummy vegan cake, a first for me. Based on my experience, I can highly recommend Britta as a charming, responsible, animal-loving pet sitter with a generous spirit, good sense of organization, and a sunny disposition. I hope to have her back one day!"

"Britta was a super housesitter. Very reliable, communicative and organised, we are very grateful she was able to take care of Tilly while we were away. We would absolutely recommend her... and already have!"

"Britta was simply wonderfull. We connected immediately and Britta also with my cats!! Britta took very good care, eventhough one cat is diabetic and needs special treatment. When i came home my house was super clean and Britta even left me some food in the frigde. So nice to come home and to be able to jump right into a clean bed after traveling almost 24 hours."

"I am so glad that it worked out for Britta to be our house sitter over the holidays. She truly enjoyed meeting and taking care of our two cats, as evident by the updates she sent throughout her visit. We arrived home after two weeks to a clean and tidy home with happy, relaxed cats. Britta was a lovely house sitter." 

"Britta as brilliant! She happened to already be in Amsterdam so came to my place a few days in advance, so I was able to show her where everything was. She is self- sufficient, responsible, and went above and beyond with both my cat Gracie and looking after my place. She shared updates throughout her stay and Gracie seemed very comfortable with her right away. I was greeted by a happy cat, a lovely note, and a delicious cake in the fridge. Would gladly have Britta petsit for me again, and have already contacted her about such future options. Can't possibly recommend Britta enough!"

"Britta was an absolutely wonderful person, and I couldn't be more happy with my housesitting experience. She left my apartment more clean than I left it, my cat Scout, was very well cared for, and I was kept very in touch with updates every few days. Britta was extremely flexible and caring, making sure I felt comfortable and that the key exchanges went smoothly. It was also so so sweet that I came home to some homemade sweet treats, flowers and a note. Thank you for everything Britta!"

"We've had quite a few brilliant pet sitters over the years, but Britta, without a doubt, has been the best.

Not only was Britta flexible with our dates, but she looked after Oscar and Bodhi so well, sending super cute photos and making sure they were well taken care of.

When we arrived home, not only was there a card and a present, which was so thoughtful but the house and garden looked better than if a professional cleaner had come. Not only did our place look better than after we left it, she also restored back to life a number of plants that were dying. Britta is the best! You can't go wrong with her.

Thank you so much."

"Britta was the perfect housesitter for me. She took great care of Ace. In the pics she sent me he looked very relaxed and happy. Which is for me a great comfort. Britta is very tidy. She took very well care of my house. When I got home, the house was cleaner than it was ever before! Also, I came home to a very relaxed and happy cat who seemed not to have missed me at all...:-). Couldn t have wished for a better sitter as Britta is a very nice and a relaxed person as well with whom you feel connected immediately."

"We had Britta taking care of our pets during our summer holiday. A cat and a rabbit. During our holiday we were in contact with Britta on a regular basis by WhatsApp. We received updates and pictures, it was so nice. This way we were able to enjoy our holiday, we just knew for sure our pets were in good hands. We actually met with Britta before we went on a holiday and we had a good click. She was really interested in our pets and asked lots of questions about them. So, when we got back from our holiday, our pets seemed all happy and relaxed and on top of that, our apartment was left spic and span. We absolutely loved having Britta taking care of our pets and home, she is such a lovely person. We could recommend Britta to take care of your pets for sure!"


I have also experience with giving medication if needed.
