Nice to meet you! I am Margaux, a Franco-German student currently enrolled at the UCU next to the Wilhelminapark.
I've been raised with cats and dogs all my life. It started with my grandmother's two dogs, both terriers, and her cat, Pupuce. When my dad lived in the US, he found two stray dogs, a basset hound and a husky-labrador that are now our long-living family members. I also helped save another stray dog, a German shepher mix, in the park. He was scared of my father, but I could soothe him and put a leash on him (spoiler: my grandfather adopted him, since he didn't belong to anybody). I love spending time with dogs, walking them, training, playing and cuddling with them, but also know to keep my distance if they are shy or not as affectionate.
I offer dog walking, home boarding, and day care.
For dog walking, it could be early in the morning or late in the evening, or something in between.
I offer 1-3 walks per day, 30 - 60 minutes long, depending on the dog’s needs.
I live close to the Krommerijn Park and the park next to De Moestuin, so lots of greenery is provided. Since my father's two dogs were strays, they sometimes get a bit aggressive in the present of other dogs in the park, so I am familiar with nervous dogs and can handle them, however big they may be.
For home boarding, I would feed, walk, play with your dog, and anything else that your dog would need - medication (orally or by injection), brushing or else. If you wish, I will send you daily updates and photos of your dog.
Since I am a student I have a very flexible schedule and study most often in my room, so your dog would never be alone for longer than 1,5 hours. I live in a shared appartment with other students (but no pets), so your dog would sleep in my room. I live on the University College Utrecht campus, so there is vast greenery. Note however that it is not gated.
I want to make your dog feel safe and at home, and will do my best to ensure that.
Please feel free to ask me questions.
I hope to see you and your dog(s) soon!
Very gentle and kind dog sitter,kept us updated on our pet’s well-being daily.Thank you!
Margaux was super responsive and had excellent communication from the get go. She comes across as a very responsible person who demonstrated she is more than capable of following instructions and providing the care and attention your dog needs. My little Luna is a beautiful firecracker that can be testing for some people but she mastered her and provided her with what she needed while I was away. She is now Lunas new GoTo for dog boarding while I'm living in the Netherlands. She has our TRUST!
