My name is Anna and I am a 24 year old, dog (and cat loving) 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.
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. 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 am also happy to look after your cat! I have many friends with cats and looked after 2 cats for 1-2 weeks in the past year.
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.
-Where I live:
I live 3 minutes walking distance away from Leiden Centraal Station in a 44 square foot appartment (and a small fenced in garden) with my boyfriend who is also an animal lover. He had 2 dogs a 1 cat growing up at home. Since we libe together, there is almost always someone at home!
IMPORTANT!! ********Right now I can only offer dog walking or home visits since dogsitting is not allowed at my place.
The landlord only allows cats to stay over. ********
I usually will walk your dog for at least 1 hour and will make sure he/she can meet other dogs and run around (if that is desired). I can also implement some training into the walk like training your dog to come to you when calling their name etc.
During a house visit, I will stay at your place for 1 hour to play/cuddle with your dog or cat and make sure they have enough water and food. If there is anything else you’d like me to do you can just let me know. :)
House sitting: Going on vacation and want your pet to stay in a familiar environment? No problem, I also offer a house sitting service where I stay over at your place and will take care of your pet.
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!
