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 till 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!
