About margaux

I got my first and only dog when I was 12 years old. Polo was a surprise from my parents to me. It's now 8 years later, and I am studying and living in Amsterdam with the same puppy, just 8 years older (she's the white dog in all the photos). I am passionate about animals in general, and I am even studying animal rights as a part of my current degree! We live on the ground floor of an apartment building, right next to a huge gated courtyard. We also live 5 minutes away from a beautiful, spacious dog park. Polo and I spend most of our time in the park, both playing and relaxing. As a student, my hours are very flexible and I spend most of my time studying in the park or in my room. I feel like I am in the perfect situation to help out busy dog-owners that need a hand. I can assure you that your dog(s) will be adored and taken care of while they are with us. House-sitting is also possible if Polo can come along! (PS - Polo is an 8 year-old female golden retriever/jack russel mix. She is medium sized, very friendly, and spayed.) I am looking to take care of vaccinated dogs. If your dog requires training, medication, or constant supervision, please let me know of this when you reach out. I have experience with puppies, adult dogs, elderly dogs, dogs after operations, and special needs dogs. I also have worked with rescues and dogs with anxiety. Polo is a bit of both. She is overall very calm and can warm up to other dogs quickly. My apartment is a fairly small studio, but I live on the ground floor right next to a large gated courtyard and near a lovely dog park. I allow pets on my furniture, but can keep your pets off of course. My room is smoke-free, cat-free, and child-free. Feel free to reach out with questions or to arrange a meeting before I take in your dog!

We were very happy with Margaux and would definitely recommend her. She kept us up to date and it was clear that our dog had a really good time. 5 stars across the board!

My dog was very calm with Margaux, she was staying for the evening and got pretty well with Margauxe's dog. Also it was very easy with communication and overall I had a very nice experience.

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English
+5 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
As someone who has been dog-sitting since the age of 13, I have worked with many different types of dogs over the years. I have trained puppies, watched and played with adult dogs, and also monitored elderly dogs. I have also had experience taking care of a dog after a surgery. I have worked with recues and anxious dogs. I have a bit of experience with dogs with behavioral problems, so I would need to meet the dog in advance in these cases. My current dog has arthritis, so I also know the kind of care that is required in these cases. I can walk up to three dogs at once!
