We are John and Krijn, and we live in the beautiful village of Beets, not far from Purmerend and Oosthuizen. We are about a 40 minute drive (or bus ride) from the center of Amsterdam. John is American, and Krijn is Dutch so, we speak both languages.
When we travel, our first concern is always finding a good, safe, reliable, and fun sitter for our doggies. We would like to be those good, safe, reliable, fun sitters for you! We both work at home, so dogs are never left alone. We normally do 3 walks per day (on-leash), but can do more if your dog needs more activity.
We have two rescue Shih Tzus who adopted us while we were living in Brooklyn, New York in 2017 and 2018. John has always had a dog, from childhood right up to the present. This is Krijn's first time having dogs because his mom was afraid of them when he was growing up. He is a great doggie daddy! Our dogs love, love, love other dogs, and to play and run around and be goofy. They also like to sleep with us on our bed at night. They're also close by all day, every day. We often refer to them as our supervisors or co-workers.
We usually board one or two dogs at a time, here at our house. When your dog becomes an honorary pack member, they will have both human and dog company all day, every day. There will be plenty of playing, and walks and treats, and of course cuddles and snuggles. At night, everyone sleeps together in our big family bed. We never cage our dogs, or anyone else's.
We require all dogs to be fully vaccinated. If they have any special diet, health or behavioral issues, please let us know before confirming your booking. FYI, in the event of an emergency, we have a good relationship with the Dierenklinek Volendam. They are about 15 minutes from us, and provide excellent care to our dogs.
We look forward to meeting you, and to caring for your dogs so you can have a worry-free vacation.
Het was weer fantastisch. John en Krijn zijn super in de communicatie, reageren snel als je iets wilt vragen en sturen altijd een paar foto’s. Ze zijn liefdevol naar Lolita. Bovendien zijn Domino en Lolita een prettig gezelschap.
Wat een fijne mensen, gaan met zoveel liefde met de honden om. Je laat je eigen hond met alle vertrouwen achter. Ze leggen hun gast echt in de watten. Wij konden met een gerust hsrt op vakantie. John en Krijn dank jullie wel ook veel liefs van puck🐶❤️.
