Hi! We are Laura and Abel, a dogs lover young couple living in the center of The Hague. Laura is a full-time dogsitter and Abel has a very flexible work in which he has the luxury of only going to work for a few hours a day. Therefore, your flurry friend will always have company at our place, lots of cuddles and all the exercise he/she needs.
At our home, dogs are allowed to go on the sofa and sleep in our bedroom, but not on our bed. Nevertheless, we like to keep the rules as similar as at your place so, in case there is anything you don’t allow, you can be sure we won’t allow it as well.
We have bowls for the food, toys, blankets and treats for your doggy, so you will not need to bring your own. However, it would be great if you could bring the treats they love most since we never give them from our food and sometimes that can be a bit hard on them. And also, their bed or a blanket that smells like home is always nice for them.
We think it is nice for both parts if we get the chance to meet before the booking, preferably at our place, so you can also see the home where your dog is going to stay.
We might have up to 3 doggies staying at the same time, which for the both of us is still pretty easy to handle and enjoyable. We will tell you before the booking starts and always as soon as we know, might be even from our first conversation, but it might not always be clear since some bookings may arrive later. So if you have the preference for your doggy to stay alone, or for example, of not staying with a certain size/breed of dog, please do let us know as soon as possible.
We have quite a lot of experience with dogs, having own doggies back in Spain and Cuba and dogsitting for 4 years now. We have experience with several breeds and also taking care of senior dogs, with especial and medical needs, as well as puppies.
While your friend stays with me I will make sure of providing you with daily updates, pictures and videos, so you will always know how is she/he doing.
We are happy to take care of puppies, we do love active doggies and playing with them. However, we find it difficult to accept doggies under 6 months old because, in our experience, they tend to forget their potty training when it comes to be with other doggies in the house and unfortunately that can be very contagious among other dogs even when older and very well trained.
Even though we are home full-time, we like being very organized with our schedules and therefore we really appreciate punctuality for the meet & greet and for picking up and dropping off the doggies. We are available for pick up and drop off between 8am and 10pm. In case you would need to come earlier in the morning or later at night, we might ask you to book another day. Bookings for Dog Boarding last a max of 24h and Doggy Day Care a max of 12h. However a time extension can be discussed.
When I offer visits or dogsitting at your house, I have a very flexible schedule so I can adapt to the visiting needs of the dog or what you would like best (schedule, duration). No need to say I will be caring and responsable with your house as well as with your dog(s).
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions!
Laura and Abel are genuinely good with doggies, they have been thorough when introducing Lula to the rest of the (mini) pack and sent videos and cute pictures. I definitely recommend them to leave your 🐕 and be mind free !
