My name is Anna and I am a 24 year old, dog (animals in general) loving student from Germany. I live in Leiden, Holland since September 2017 and will stay here to finish my research Master in Psychology.
I have lots of freetime and am very flexible, since I only have to be in uni a couple of hours a day. And since corona I have online classes.
Furthermore, I live with my boyfriend who himself has a dog at his parents place and also used to own a cat and in case I have to go somewhere, he'll be home with your furry friend! :)
I grew up with 4 dogs and really miss taking them out for walks, or to play and cuddle them. In my opinion, dogs are the better humans, because they are unconditionally loyal and always make your day better. I find pleasure in training dogs for basic tricks or go on a big field to play with them. I also like taking dogs to the beach and I ususally don't leave them alone for more than one hour, but take them with me when outside when it's possible. Since i am an international student it is not possible for me to own a dog myself, so i am very interested in taking care of someone else’s best friend!
I live in the Center of Leiden, in small 20 square meter appartment, which is close to many parks and great for going for long walks. I already took care of many dogs, when my neighbours went on vacation (jack russle, shiba inu, wischler, cocker spaniel, labrador,Maltese). They stayed from 1 day until a few weeks at my place until they returned and I always got along very well with the dogs, because I have lots of experience about how to deal with them.
Furthermore, one of my previous dogs came from an animal shelter and was rather shy, but I managed to make him trust me and after some time he got more and more happy and carefree.
Also, this last summer, I took care of a 8 week old puppy for 1 month every day from 7 am- 5 pm and did things like potty training, basic commands (sit, lay down, wait, "no", walking on the leash) and socializing with the puppy.
I would be more than happy if you contacted me to sit your dog: no matter if it is for dog walking or an overnight stay! I can also host your dog up to several weeks in a row as long as i don’t have other dogs to look after!
Btw: I am also happy to look after your cat! Although I never had a cat myself, I have many friends with cats and looked after 2 cats for some time in the past. 😸
Have a nice day, Anna :)
Our cat was very happy at Anna's place. Anna treated her very well, and she was obviously relaxed and happy to be there. Anna sent many pictures and videos from our cat as well, which was enjoyable and reassuring.
Anna is a very responsive, knowledgeable, and sweet dog sitter. She was helpful with us to keep up some training (our dog is still a puppy), and she was flexible on timing. We are very happy with her support and help, and we intend to use her services again. Thank you Anna!
-a lot of experience with dogs!
