Hi, Jerry here, nice to meet you.I have had dogs and cats since I was 7, so I consider them brothers and sisters really. If you live with a cat, I will be happy to do home visits and spend some time with them.
Back to me:
I am an author (...look my books up on Amazon, or Google my latest: Feelings and Needs: A doorway to a successful organization through healthy work relationships...), counselor/coach, helping people overcome stress, overworked brain activity, ailing relationships, burn-outs, depressions, relocation shock, etc... Last but not least, I work from home, so your companion will have company most of the time.
I am offering myself to look after your canine friend in the best way I can, which means they will get spoiled rotten, with lots of walks (short or long, whatever your friend can handle. There is a lovely canal area leading all the way to the Zuiderpark, as well as lots of other parks), a very cozy set of blankets to rest on ( although I am sure you know it is best you bring his/hers as it provides the comfort of the known for them....and yes, a specific chair we have is an option for extended siestas...:-) ) and, according to your instructions, doggie edible goodies...:-). I have a vet at walking distance ( some 500 m/yards) in case of need. I worked with her years ago when my doggie was still alive and I really liked her, for both her humanity and care for animals.
Before going on, a few IMPORTANT points: IMPORTANT MAIN... :-) Even if you see me booked for a specific date, I may be available for walks or daycare at yours, so please be in touch using any available dates. Thanks.
IMPORTANT 1) As you might have seen, I don't take puppies in my house. However, if you would like me to walk them, I am very happy to do that. As much as I love the little ones, I don't have the time right now to take them into my house, as puppies need and deserve a lot of attention, so, please, only doggies from 1 year for daycare or overnight stays. While I really regret this, I hope you can understand.
IMPORTANT 2) Bookings are for a 24 hr period. E.g. If you bring your friend at 3 in the afternoon for one night, the booking is until 3 of the following day. Depending on my time, I might be able to accommodate a later pick up. If it is substantially later, we should agree on either a "day rate" or an "extra overnight".
IMPORTANT 3) Please be aware that we live on the 1st floor and that for bigger, elderly dogs (small ones I can pick up) with joint pain the 100-year-old traditional Dutch narrow-step stairs might be a bit tricky. I hope you can understand the previous points and thanks for, well, your understanding...:-) "Why", you might ask, "have you not an animal right now?" Because I am still recovering from the death of my best 4-legged friend Canelo, a Spanish Podenco, a few years ago, and because my partner and I travel extensively, hours and hours on planes -and we both believe that would not be fair to our potential four-legged friend. As you might have seen already, I offer to come and fetch 4-paws where it is convenient for you and of course, depending on my time on that particular day. Closeby, I'll come walking, no cost.
A little further I have two zones:
zone 1) which covers most of The Hague 5 EUR to cover return tram costs and a coffee...;-)
and zone 2) 10 EUR, for example, Delft or Zoetermeer. That's it for the moment.
Feel free to ask me anything! I look forward to meeting your friend(s) and you of course. Hugs and paws to all! Jerry
This was first dog boarding for our furry friend and everything went well and as planned. Great service! :)
Due to unforseen circumstances we had to leave our dog to a dog sitter for the first time in her life. I was so worried that if we leave her with people she doesn't know she would be devastated and that was very stressful. But from the moment I met Jerry and Gordana both me and my doggy felt so relaxed as if we knew each other for a long time. They treated her as if she was their own pet. I could see from our daily communication that she was happy (probably she didn't miss me at all 😁). I am so lucky that I found you guys, no one else could ever please a "neurotic mom" like me. I will definitely use your services again and I do recommend you to whomever is interested. Thank you for everything!
