Hello, my name is Reka and I'm a 20 year old university student/ animal lover. I live in Den Haag with my boyfriend and our sweet dog, Cherry.
After walking my neighbors’ dogs for a while, I realised I am the luckiest person ever if I get to earn some extra money while hanging out with animals so I started dogsitting. I have built my knowledge based on experience as well as extensive research about dog behaviour. I have experience with small as well as big dogs (Akitas, pitbulls, huskies, etc) and have dogsat young puppies as well as dogs as old as 16, so I am really open to adjusting to your dog's needs. I especially enjoy dog training and I am attending agility classes with my rescue dog at the moment.
I live in the city but luckily we are only 10 minutes walking from a huge park and 15 minutes walking from a little forest so I can walk my dog and any guests in nature rather than "in the city."
I am also a firm believer in dogs needing mental stimulation during their everyday lives. Beause of this, I always provide my little guests with enrichment. I teach them fun tricks if they feel up for it, or just scatter some treats in the grass to sniff them out, prepare a kong toy or some doggie board games to truly get their mind working. I work with positive reinforcement techniques!
I volunteer for a few dog rescue organisations, and adopted my own dog named Cherry. For dogs staying at my place, they must be socialized and tolerant of her because she is still very energetic and loves to play! Of course she knows to settle when told and listens well but if your dog prefers to be left in complete peace, I am happy to look after him/her at your home. Contact me with any enquiries so I can answer your questions :)
I also provide dog walking services either as individuals or as a part of a group walk! Please message me for more info, or discounts for regular walks.
Notice: I live on the third floor so dogs staying with me will need to be able to take stairs or tolerate me carrying them upstairs.
Reka is trust worthy, predictable and very comforting to have as a dog sitter. She is honest and up front about what is to be expected and our communication has been clear from the start. Reka has bonded with our puppy from the beginning and has really given our puppy a second home to go to & a loyal walker.
Réka came to walk, feed, and play with my 4 month old puppy, and I am delighted with her service. She is very experienced and knowledgable about dogs of many ages and characters, has great attention to detail, and is a pleasure to work with. We would recommend her to anyone!
