My name is Leigh and I am a British expat living in Bilthoven. I have always been a massive animal lover, and when I lived back in the UK with my family, I was always surrounded by pets. However, since moving, I have not had the opportunity to spend as much time around animals as I would have liked to. This is my main motivation for wanting to be a pet sitter, as I miss my family pets (Dolly and Rodney the dogs, as well as my sister's cats) very much.
I am happy to offer any services required (walks, home visits, pet sitting at your home or boarding in my own) although I am limited when having pets boarding in my apartment, to smaller sized dogs, due to space restrictions within the apartment. There is however, plenty of outdoor and green space in our neighbourhood, so your pet will have plenty of space for exploring on walks! Walks can be planned to suit your dog’s needs - however many they usually require per day and the length of the walk can all be arranged and I can offer them as required.
My work is very flexible, and I spend a lot of time working from home, so I am able to be flexible with my availibility. This also means that when pet sitting, I have plenty of time to spend with your pet, and give them all the attention they need! The time I spend out of the house for work per week is on average 10 hours or less, and the work I do from home is entirely on my own schedule, so I am available for them almost constantly.
I live with my partner and we have no pets of our own so our home is a quiet and calm environment with plenty of attention from both of us for your pet!
Guest pets can stay wherever they are most comfortable. If they are used to sleeping in a bedroom near you, they are able to do so here, and if they are used to sleeping alone in another room that’s also fine - our home is their home whilst they stay here, so I’d like them to be as comfortable as possible.
I'd love to be your pet sitter and get to spend time with your pets in order to help you out!
Fantastische oppas. Topweekend voor ons hondje met veel aandacht en lekker vaak naar buiten.
Leigh was a great sitter, she responded quickly to messages and sent us regular updates which we really appreciated. Our dog was a bit nervous on arrival and Leigh gave her all the time and space she needed to get comfortable in her new environment.
