We are Marie (22, German, psychology student) and Folke (23, Dutch, AI student), two master students living in Groningen for over 3 years.
Both of us grew up having a family dog and various other pets (cats, bunnies and fish) and Folke even farm animals (sheep, pigs and chicken). Therefore, we love having animals around us - can, however, not commit to our own dog before having finished our studies. Thus, we would love to help you out with your pets: Take your dog on one of our extended walks, feed your pet while you are gone, stay at your place overnight or even take him/her over to our large apartment (80 m²) with balcony if you are on a holiday for a weekend or also extended periods - if desired also long cuddle/brush and play sessions included ;).
We have already had experiences with home boarding, daycare, home visits, house sitting and regular walking of different dogs via Pawshake.
In the apartment that the two of us do not share with anyone else, dogs are allowed in the living room, hallway, study room, kitchen and on the balcony (photos are available upon request). We prefer to keep pets out of the bath- and bedroom, so the guest pets we have usually sleep in their own bed in our hallway or kitchen. While we do not have a garden, just around the corner of our house is a grass field ''losloop area" which is ideal for playing fetch. Furthermore, we only live in 10min walking distance from the Noorderplatsoen.
The two of us also love to go running, biking or inline skating for which a more active dog is always welcome to join! Both of us are experienced with different kinds of dogs, small as well as large. Moreover, our studies are flexible with regard to time management, so we are usually able to provide 24 hour care with 3-4 one hour walks per day.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about us or our services!
We are looking forward to getting to know you and your pet!
Marie took great care of Utah. It can be challenging to take care of a puppy, but Marie did a wonderful job. Highly recommend!
Rosie is happy to spend time at Marie and Folke, they take excellent care of our active young dog, playing with her, taking her for long walks and even for runs!
