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 did finish a Veterinary Auxiliary course at the Centro Médico Escuela in Buenos Aires which gave me the knowledge to be able to assist your pet if an emergency were to arise, as well as being able to pinpoint if something out of the ordinary was happening.

I have worked as a dog walker/sitter for 4 years in my hometown, having had more than 15 doggie clients and really good relationships and reviews from their owners, and I even still have contact with them nowadays. Even though I’m pretty new on this app I have a lot of experience taking care of animals. I've also worked as a pet groomer in several pet shops. At the moment I have a part time job in Eindhoven but unfortunately it doesn't involve working with animals, that’s why I enjoy pet sitting so much. I can provide home company for your little one, play time and some cuddle time of course, 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.

I can take care of any animal, both big and small, 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. 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. Or I can also stay for close to one hour in your house playing and keeping your dog company. If you were to have a cat, a home visit would consist of me making sure they have food, water, a clean sand box every day and of course some play time and cuddles in order for them not to lack human contact.

While I look after your pet, I can also look after your house while you’re away. I can take the trash bins out on pick up days, collect mail in a safe spot for when you come home and even take care of your plants. This is also included in the pet sitting fee.

I’m will also text you when I arrive to your home to say how I found everything when I got there. I understand that being far away from your pet is not easy at all, so I want to make sure you’ll have peace of mind while you’re away by having daily updates on how your little one is doing. 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!

Sophie heeft onze kat Boyd fantastisch verzorgd tijdens onze skivakantie. Ze heeft snel zijn vertrouwen gewonnen, wat best knap is voor een eenkennige kat. Sophie is een echte dierenvriend. Elke dag stond Boyd haar knorrend op te wachten! Sophie communiceert heel prettig, houdt zich aan de afspraken en stuurde dagelijks grappige, leuke filmpjes/foto’s naar ons toe. Wij vinden Sophie een echte topper en bevelen haar van harte aan!

Sophie took a super good care of our cat during Christmas and new year's eve! She is absolutely fantastic. She listens carefully about our wishes and provided flawless and warm care to our cat. She is also a great film and photo maker! We have received lots of updates from her with super lovely films and photos which really relieved all our concerns while we were away from our cat! Most importantly, Sophie understands very well the behavior of cats. She calms our cat and gets her trust very fast even just at the first meet. (Normally our cat is not very easy to trust people who she doesn't know.) It is no doubt that Sophie has won the trust from our cat and also from us. : ) I feel very comfortable to have Sophie looked after our cat! Thank you Sophie!!!

I can take care of exotic animals
I’ve had contact with animals all my life, starting with my first pet when I was 5. He was called Pepi, a cat we rescued from the street, and after him dozens of animals followed, from injured wild birds to horses. Animal caretaking is something it’s embedded in me since my early age and I’ve always enjoyed very dearly. Not only that, but I count with all these years of passion and experience in it. Later on, I completed a Veterinary Auxiliar course in my hometown and I’ve sat for the career of Veterinary Medicine until year 2. I also have experience as a dog walker and caretaker for more than 3 years with lots of positive references. I had the key to the houses of the dogs I would walk and I would often take my care of their little ones at their own place while the owners were on vacation. I've also worked as a pet groomer in several pet shops and I can give medicine shots to your pet if needed.
