My name is Stephanie, and I am a French American living in the Netherlands now. I moved here last July for my Masters, and now that I am also done with my studies I am looking forward to getting back into pet/house sitting. Back in the States I was a dog walker/pet sitter/house sitter/house cleaner/organizer for a year and I really enjoyed it! I grew up taking care of our guinea pigs, fish and reptiles. I also have worked on a few farms where I had to care for horses, rabbits, chickens, geese, goats, cats and dogs for a couple months. Because I have traveled a lot, I have never been able to own a cat or dog unfortunately, so whenever I get the chance to be in their presence I always have a wonderful time. Cats and dogs tend to really enjoy my energy, as I feel that they sense my love, care, attention, playfulness and comfort for them.
When taking dogs on walks I always try to bring them to green spaces to let them enjoy the open spaces, the freedom to run if allowed of course, and the freedom to sniff around and enjoy themselves in the fresh air. If there are specific rules or things that I need to pay particular attention to, I will follow them exactly as told. I am very attentive and careful when it comes to recognizing if dogs will not get along and I always pick up their poop.
When I pet sit, I love to cuddle and play with the animals if they want to, give them as much attention as they’d like, clean up after their messes and feed them on time. If there are any issues that I feel that I am unable to resolve or have a question about something pertaining to safety, care or security, I will contact the owner. I will also only contact the owner for questions if they clarify certain times of day to be contacted. In other words, I am very respectful of the owner’s time, their home and their pets.
If ever you would like me to clean your home, organize spaces, paint, garden, mow the lawn, or do any other particular tasks, please let me know. I usually charge around 13€ per hour depending on the tasks, but we can always negotiate prices! There are a lot of things I can do, lots that I am learning and I love to have fun. I am also very professional, genuine, trustworthy, organized and communicative.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and hope that you consider me a wonderful candidate to be your sitter! :D
Stephanie is a natural. She took great care of our two dogs and our house while we were away for a weekend. Mia loved her walks and playtime in the park and they both missed here after she had left. I would be lucky to have her sit them again in the future.
Very nice person, easy communication and great with Mila. Also good with unexpected little changes from our side (we had an extra dog staying just this once). As said on Stephanie's profile also available for cleaning, did a great job there too! Very happy to have found Stephanie :)
