We are Marieke (38) and DJ (36) and are both working parttime and sometimes at home. DJ is a freelance lawyer (Privacy and ICT). DJ is crazy about dogs and also motorcycles. Marieke works as content creator at geheugenvenster .Is a big nature lover and goes on her racing bicycle into the polder and does yoga. She also likes taking pictures with her Canon also sometimes of the pets she visits. So if you are lucky yet get a great shot of your pet. We both grew up with cats, dogs and other animals, so we are experienced in that way.
We are crazy about our cat Mojo (12), he loves to sit on top of us all day if he can. We would love to have our own dog, but unfortunately this is not possible in our house (too small). We cannot bring your pet to our home because Mojo will riot. But we can come to you. Sometimes we will come together, sometimes either one is available. We also have a car so sometimes we take our host dogs to the Amsterdamse Bos for a good long walk or to the beach, as it is one of our favourite places. Always with the owners prior permission, of course.
We can be very busy with work and sometimes we have more time for our selves. “Het is rennen of stilstaan" as we say in Dutch. And then we would love to take care of your pets. We spend a lot of time on the computer so taking the dog out for a long walk or playing with your cat is our pleasure.
We have been very active on pawshake for a 1 year now. And have taken care of many different pets, from tiny kittens to puppies, and even big dogs like an American Bulldog, you name it. Also one of our clients has a blind and deaf dog and he is very fragile and sometimes we actually carry him to the park. We always take time discuss with the owner how much time the pets need and do a extensive meet and greet before we start. We do it also for our own pleasure so if we have time, we are playing and walking for hours. So a walk can vary from half hour to hours but we make sure the pets get what they need. If I can I take dogs to the park, Beatrixpark and Oosterpark are favourite spots. Marieke can do sleepovers but only if it is in Amsterdam and maximum for 4 days.
Please let us know if we can help out.
Groetjes Marieke en DJ
Marieke and DJ are wonderful with the pups! They really enjoy their walks with them and seem happy and relaxed when they return home. Would highly recommend them.
Our dog was happy and in very good form when we came back from our holidays so that says a lot!
DJ's family had loads of dogs, differing from labrador, samoyed to america eskimo. So he knows how to handle dogs very well.
I grew up with a smauss dog.
