Hello pet-owners! We are a young couple who loves dogs and have a lot of experience taking care of them. We also have taken care of cats, both in their own homes or our home, but at the moment a cat visit at our place will probably not be a good idea since we have a little doggie ourselves now. However, our dog somehow doesn't register cats so won't act to it, but cats themselves usually don't like to be in the same place with a dog (understandably).
To stay with our dog, the reason we would like to do more dogsitting is because it turns out to go extremely well together with our dog. Even the more shy or dominant ones tend to lift up when being around her. She never causes any problems with other animals since she is small and rather submissive. Therefore we even see it as an advantage to take care of dogs together with our own one. Of course, in some cases this turns out to be impossible, in that case it is also possible to take care of your dog seperately (we're with two). Enough about our dog, let's say something about ourselves.
Currently we work only from home due to the pandemic and we expect that to stay like that the coming future. We have way more free time and therefore like to spend as much as possible time outside and go for walks.
When inside, we enjoy the company of the animals and they can be guaranteed of fulltime attention during the whole day. We both grew up taking care of animals like cats, rabbits and mainly dogs. Especially dogs always know how to steal our hearts so dogsitting always stayed part of our lives. We have watched over very different kinds of dogs, from big labradors to small maltezers and everything in between. We also have experience with dogs with a history or the ones that can get a little grumpy every now and then. We do have a lot of experience training them so therefore we know the signals they give you and how to react to that properly. We like to take care of the big ones that want to run over the beach and explore the forest everyday but also won't get bored of the old ladies that prefer a small block around the corner.
I think I made our love for animals quite clear, but feel free to reach out for any more questions, we're happy to answer!
Virginia did a great job looking after our two dogs - she was easy to communicate with and reliable :)
