About Natalia


My name is Natalia. Together with my husband, we moved to the Netherlands over 5 years ago from Peru. My husband is Peruvian and I am Ukrainian. We lived for some time in Peru and travelled the world, but for already 5 years our home is in the Netherlands.

Currently we live in our cozy home in Vleuten. Together we work from home and take care of our fluffy “children”: 2 dogs and a cat. 

In my day to day, I treat pets with love and respect they deserve. I am a strong believer and follower of 5 freedoms that I guarantee and provide to each animal:

  1. Freedom from hunger and thirst: there is bowl with clean water (that is being refreshed every day) on each floor and in every room of the house. Food is being provided as per needs and requirements for each animal. If needed it is cooked, or barf, canned or dry.
  2. Freedom from discomfort: each pet has a freedom of choice, whether to lay in a special bed, cool down on the floor, or to make us company in bed and/or sofa.
  3. Freedom from pain, injury or disease: we always have first aid kit at a reach and medicines for animals. 
  4. Freedom to express animal normal behavior: walks and activities are adjusted based on the breed, temper and character of the pet.
  5. Freedom from fear and distress: all animals are treated with respect to their needs and requirements.
  6. 1. What you can expect from me:

    I'm pet lover with extensive history of volunteering in pet welfare organizations and helping to the adopted animals. You can expect that your pet will be entertained in accordance with their needs, e.g. husky - lots of physical activities, jogging, mental exercises, retriever - play times, socialization, mental exercises, etc. 

    If your pet has specific diet - it will be followed. 

    Oral medication can be administered on demand. 

    2. About our House:

    Our house is in Vleuten, Utrecht.

    We have a backyard, huge Maximapark nearby and also playgrounds for dogs with/without water ponds.

    All pets are free to move around the house. They are allowed to join us on the sofas and in bed.

    If your rules are different, they will be strictly followed. We have various fences and beds for pets which can be provided and used for aligning with his/her usual routine. 

    We have a car, so if transportation is required -please let me know.

    Pick up from locations further than 30 minutes away - is subject of extra charges. 

    3.Treating Dogs/Cats with behavioral or health issues:

    • health issues: you can rely on us and our experience. Beyond being volunteer previously, our older dog is visually and hearing impaired, as well as, has epilepsy and digestion issues. Dealing with all of that, allowed us to gain extensive experience in Dutch health system, find reliable specialist and learn in depth about ways to approach and to recognize health concerns. 
    • behavioral issues: I have experience with helping animals to recover. I “listen” and adjust to their needs, in return - they overgrow their fears and transform in different creatures. One of the latest: dog from puppy mill with behavioral issues. Upon the moment of him going to the forever family - he has recovered and became friendly, happy and less anxious.
    • If you have any questions or concerns, I would be more than happy to answer those.

      Dog Boarding

      From the beginning I had a good feeling. The communication and introduction was excellent. Natalia lives in a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful spacious house plus garden. Her 2 pugs were happy/fun and ideal company for our dog. Natalia is very experienced with dogs, which was evident from all the questions she asked during the introduction. She makes her own ice creams from meat when it's sweltering hot. She grooms the coat of our sheepdog. She sends updates during the vacations :-) Everything was actually perfect. Our dog liked the playground around the corner, where he met other dogs, the most!!! Next time we will choose Natalia again.

      The dogs loved it at Natalia's place. She was mindful of every need and regularly updated us with photos and videos. We will definitely come back again.
