About Sophie

Hi there! If you're looking for someone to take care of your pets with love and a big sense of responsibility you've come across the right profile!

First let me introduce myself, my name is Sophie, I’m a vegetarian (vegan in the making) and I come from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Back home I enrolled in the Veterinary Medicine career due to my love for animals but I decided to drop off to be able to come to live in The Netherlands. I've completed a Veterinary Auxiliary course and I have worked as a dog walker/sitter for 4 years in my hometown. I've also worked as a pet groomer in several pet shops, so I have a lot of experience when it comes to taking care of animals. At the moment I have a part time job in Eindhoven but unfortunately it doesn't involve working with animals. I would also like to be able to help animals and be in contact with them, that's why I would love to be a sitter for your pet. I can provide home company for your little one as well as going for walks if needed. Everything for your pet to feel at ease while you're away.

I can administer shots as well as oral medication. Even though I’m not a professional in animal behaviour I’m super interested in it and I know my ways around it. I speak Spanish, English, a bit of Dutch and a bit of Portuguese. I’m also a photographer so besides of excellent care for your little one you get also really nice pictures.

At home I have a rescued female neutered doggie and a male puppy both from Romania, so I could only bring home a small or medium dog for a couple of hours for them to play together.

I can take care of any animal and for sure they will be treated as my own. Animals are no different to family for me. I treat them with love and respect and see them as equal, sensitive beings.

Regarding the service itself, I can provide home visits with a 45 minute walk to exercise your dog’s body and mind. Or I can also stay for one hour in your house playing and keeping your dog company.

If the weather is really bad we do a hygienic walk so they can go for a potty break and then we stay at home playing.

I’m can also text you when I arrive to your dog and say how I found everything when I got there (hopefully he was a good boy). And because of the fact that I’m a photographer I’d love to snap a pic of your little one and send it to you. I can also trim your pets nails if needed.

This would be a typical house visit but if another service was needed it could always be discussed, just let me know!

My availability is not always the same so we would need to arrange that when the time comes but for sure we can sort something out.

I refer to a dog when I write in my description but I can take care of any pet! They are all more than welcome.

Our kitties got along very well with Sophie, especially one of the kitties who is very fussy. It was a delight to see them playing in the photos and videos sent out. A big thank you to Sophie.
