About Ira

Hi there! My name is Ira, I’m 21 and I am a 4th year student studying in Utrecht.

I used to live with my parents and a very sweet English bulldog, but he passed away 5 years ago, which was a big loss for my family. We still miss him a lot and that’s one of the main reasons why I’m here on this app: dogs are like a small therapy, they bring so much joy and happiness to our lives :)

Be sure I'm gonna give your little friends all of my love, attention and care, as much as I’d love to give it to my dog.

I no longer offer dog boarding at my place.

I do offer dog walking, home visits and house sitting (staying at your place). Usually I ask for a small fee for transportation to your house and if you need a proof of the costs I can easily send it from the app called 9292. The time I spend with your fur baby, whether it’s a walk or a home visit depends on your needs and can be discussed during the booking process.

If I stay at your house, I can also water plants, take out garbage & do some cleaning in general if needed.

We can always arrange a meeting beforehand to see if there’s a match between us!

In your message, please let me know a preferable date and/or time. Usually I’m quite flexible, so there shouldn’t be any issues with that.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I’m always open to feedback and will be very happy if you leave a review on my page. Thanks!

Have a great day! :)

Ira

Doggy Day Care
Isabel, 2022-10-30

My experience with Ira was great and I will most definitely be using her services again. She communicated throughout the sit so I had no concerns my dog was safe and happy with her. He’s an anxious dog so having someone who understands that and is accommodating is very important. I definitely felt like I was leaving him in very trustworthy hands.

Vedrana, 2022-05-17

Unfortunately, I was very unsatisfied, especially when all the other reviews are so nice. I didnt get the service I paid for. I had to leave my niece's bday party to pick my dog up earlier than agreed because Ira said the dog pulled too much during the walk. My dog is 12 kg, so I dont how intense that pulling can be, but also, we talked the day before and I mentioned the energy my dog has, she said nothing. I think if thats the case, she should be responsible and only take senior dogs. In addition, I only receieved 1 update picture, quite early in the day, but I did recieve question to update her when i am coming to pick up the dog, even though I already confirmed I will come earlier. All in all, I paid for service I didnt recieve, I find it irresponsible and unable to cater to dogs well.

RESPONSE FROM SITTER: The owner came just 1,5h earlier than initially expected. In our communication, I mentioned that the dog does not behave well, nor listens to me, and pulls me very intensely – so I asked if it’s possible to pick it up earlier before the evening walk, and I’d do a longer one beforehand to compensate the inconvenience (to which I received the msg that it’s not a problem, so I didn’t know there’s an issue until the review). I spent 10 hours with the dog, and updated the owner that it’s walked, fed, and taken care of. Apart from that, Vedrana didn’t bring bowls for food and water, as well as poop bags. Finally, to receive great service it’s important to do your part as well.
