My name is Esteban and I am a 23 years old Colombian student. I came to the Netherlands 3 years ago to do my bachelors in Psychology, and after this time I fell in love with the city (Leiden) so decided to stay for my masters as well. Currently, I am doing my masters in AI at the VU in Amsterdam, however, I will stay living in Leiden as I really came to appreciate this town. As for the reason I have decided to become a pet sitter, it comes down to two main reasons. Firstly, I need to generate some income since living in the Netherlands has become more expensive than what I was able to afford before. Secondly, I decided that if I were to find a job, I would prefer to do something that I know I can do well and that I would enjoy.
Pretty much my whole life I have had pets. when I was younger I had a dog and a cat. when I was a teen I had two cats. then I moved away from my parent's house in order to start my studies and there hasn't been one home where there was no cat present ever since then. However, in the past few months, I moved to my own studio and no pets are allowed, this made me realized how much I miss spending time with animals. For transparency purposes, I must admit I have never been paid for looking after pets, however, I have been trusted by family and friends to look after their pets while they are gone on vacations. Besides taking care of my own pets. If you wonder how long I would walk your pets, I'm rather flexible. it would be anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the owner's needs. As for the home visits, I'm equally flexible, however in this case I do charge per hour.
I know pets are family, so if there are any more questions about me, feel free to ask. it's important that you feel comfortable with the person who will be looking after your loved ones.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
