I'm Patricia, I'm 29 years old from Brazil and after doing my master in Sustainability, I started working here in Utrecht. This allows me to have a flexible schedule, with one day of home office per week.
However, I do prefer to take care of your dog for a weekend or even a day during the week, since I do have to work, I don’t want to leave your pet alone.
My Apartment + Backyard garden + Nearby Parks
I live in an apartment on the 1st floor (so if your dog is big and doesn't climb stairs this might be an issue). Your dog likes to walk outside? No problem! My apartment has a backyard AND I live a few minutes away from Grift and Wilhemina Parks, so your dog will not get bored! I live with my boyfriend who is just as crazy for pets as I am! So you'll get 2 dogsitters for the price of one!!
I have a big welcoming couch! Your dog can sleep in the room with me, I have space for a dog bed and even in my bed (if that's allowed by you). So he/she won’t feel alone at night.
My experience with dogs
I got my first dog when I was 7 years old and from then there was no scaping!! In the following 20 years, I had 5 dogs (and adopted some others that crossed my path). I grew up used to being surrounded with sweet, loyal furry friends that made me understand so much about life. Since I moved to the Netherlands I couldn’t have dogs anymore because I live by myself and travel back home for some weeks every year. That is why I’m constantly drooling over friends‘ (and strangers’) dogs. I had 1 mud, 1 poodle-toy (it's a small poodle) that lived for 15 years, 2 labradors, and another mud that showed up at my house (she is 13 years old now and is still the smartest dog ever!).
You can be sure I will take care of your dog as if it were one of my own!! And a lot of love and cuddling!
I'm currently suffering from Dog Abstinence! That is why I’m more than glad to take your dog for a weekend or some days, small or big.. I don’t discriminate by size or age!!
Patricia and her boyfriend are really nice and cool, Sensei had a good stay with them!
Patricia was outstanding as a dog sitter. From our first interaction to the moment I picked up Bob Jay she was communicative and made sure I was comfortable with the whole process. She managed to make Bob Jay feel safe and happy with her, so I was happy as well.
