Originally from the United States, I have lived in the Netherlands for 10 years and last year
my family and I moved to Haarlem. We have a little zoo at home which consists of a chihuahua, two cats, a hamster and a snake. Needless to say, pets are a big part of my family's life and I know how difficult it can be to find a trustworthy person to take care of them.
I have always enjoyed animals, and animals seem to warm up to me quickly.
I grew up with a dog, and spent several years pet sitting my friends' dogs just after I graduated university. I have expanded to pet sitting cats and an occasional bearded dragon since moving to the Netherlands.
Currently, I am a life coach and my partner and I have our own business. I appreciate the flexibility that allows me more time to offer others dependable and trustworthy care for their animals when needed.
With my zoo at home, I can't offer to care for your pet in my home, but I would be happy to make sure it is taken care of in your home.
I offer one or two visits a day depending on what would benefit your pet the most. I find it important to spend time with animals, playing or cuddling, or a combination of both; therefore, each house visit is a minimum of 30 minutes. In addition to taking care of your pet's needs (feeding, walking, changing/scraping the litter box, brushing, etc), I can also water plants and collect mail. I will be happy to keep you updated with daily messages and pictures if you would like.
Looking forward to meeting you and caring for your beloved pet.
Trish took great care of our cat Vossie when we were away for a few days! You can see that she has a lot of experience with cats. I would definitely recommend her. She is very friendly, responds quickly and Vossie really enjoyed her company. Thanks again, Trish!
Trish was a wonderfully calm presence with our anxious puppy. She was really open to working with our puppy and with us. We wouldn’t hesitate having Trish back again!
