About Chris

Whilst is this certainly started as I was honestly just missing my dog Sophie, and wanted to walk yours.

It has now become a full time job and one I love, I have a number of regular dogs who come to stay or just for a walk.

I've been doing this job for a little over 2 years now and have found a hidden calling with so many lovely doggies (and cats) who have become like my own, including some whose owners only have to pay for their stay if they actually pick them up at the end of the time.

Living in the Pijp with plenty of time to spare. Have grown up with animals and pets as a matter of course.

In the photos is Sophie, a 7 year old black labrador who I miss taking for long walks through the countryside with her boundless energy and limitless interest in balls and sticks. She is very well trained able to walk at the heel without a leash, returns at the call of her name and ignores other dogs. Mostly farmers fields so never taught her to defecate in any specific location.

So I would like to take your bundle of joy out and throw the ball. The sarphatipark is next to my place and a very dog friendly place.

Also open to cat sitting, which is just like what I have been doing for the MSPCA and RSPCA, where I would volunteer.

On the Dog Boarding - I live in a comfortable ground floor appartment with a small garden. However I am next to the Sarphatipark which has a dog section where I can/will walk the dog. Bigger (& younger) dogs I would take out into the countryside. Depending on how well trained the dog already is as much off leash as legally possible.

Sophie I can walk off leash through British towns.

If your dog is comfortable running along with a bike (or on a tram) will take it out further, Amsterdam Bos or even out along the Amstel

Chris looked after our cat Ninfa for several weeks, far longer than we've ever had to leave her. He was fantastic and made us feel confident throughout the booking that she was happy and healthy. Frequent photos and updates continued throughout our booking and when we had to move our flight one day, he was easy to communicate with and flexible. We will certainly reach out to Chris in the future for his services and we recommend! Thanks, Chris!

I left my puppy with Chris for two nights and he sent me all the updates of how he is adjusting and enjoying his time. Chris was very gentle with Odin who is shy and bit anxious but it all worked out well. Will definitely book Chris again :)
