About Mathilde

Hi! My name is Mathilde (24 years old), I'm a true pet lover. I am currently doing my master degree at Erasmus University. I was born in Brussels and moved to the Netherlands 6 years ago. I speak French, English and Spanish.

I have over 5 years of experience as a dog sitter. I can take care of dogs which are still being trained, as I have myself trained two dogs in the past. Over the summer I usually volunteer as a foster mom for dogs with special needs. For this reason, I am comfortable with shy, moody or 'difficult' pets. I believe that, just like us, every pet has his or her own character and past and I am a very patient person who respect the animal's boundaries. I am also experienced in administering cats and dogs all sort of medication if needed (diabetes injections, oral medication, creams, teeth cleaning, etc.). I have myself had two dogs who passed away at age 13 and 14 and took care of many senior pets over the last few years so I am very much at easy with old dogs and cats.

I live on the ground floor which means that older pets do not have to go up any stairs and have a free access to the little (fully fenced) garden at anytime. I also live close to 3 different parks, here in Rotterdam.

Being a master student means that I spend a lot of time at home studying. Hence, when I petsit animals in my own apartment they are never left on their own for more than an hour. We play, go for walks, cuddle. I can also come to your house if this is prefered.

As a god owner/mama myself, I know how hard it can be to have to trust someone with your furry friend. For this reason, I always send pictures and updates on what we have been up to during the day. I can assure you that your dog will be cared for as if it was my own. I make no difference between my dog and my little holidayers. There is no off-limit spaces at home, the dog can go wherever he or she pleases.

Running around with dogs is my favourite calorie burning method! However, I always adapt my methods to the profile of the pet I sit. I can go on very long walks and run in the park with a young energetic dog or go on 4 or 5 small walks with an older pet.

At home I live with my little Chihuahua mix named Lily. She is extremely social and loves the company of small and big dogs. She is sterilized so I can take care of your little boy as well as your female dogs. Every dog I ever sit got along really well with Lily, she loves having friends to play with.

Therefore, if you believe that my profile would suit you and your pet, feel free to send me a message. I would absolutely LOVE to take care of him/her and help you in any ways possible! As previously mentioned I am a student which means that I have a very flexible schedule and I will do all I can to accommodate you best!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Mathilde :)

Mathilde not only took good care and really pampered Katara (my dog), you can tell she loves animals in general and dogs in particular.

She told me about my dog's quirks and silly/dumb behaviors that only someone who really pays attention could even notice.

She maintained me informed of their activities and sent me regularly pictures of how great of a time Katara was having.

Totally recommended.

Mathilde is fantastic! She communicates frequently and quickly, takes great care of our pup, and most importantly Ichigo loves spending time with her.

Couldn't ask for more!
