About Maria & Balta

We are from Colombia and Germany, we just established in Utrecht. We love animals, Maria is a Veterinary Doctor and Animal Scientist and candidate for a MSc in Food Quality Management at Wageningen University. We have a dog and a cat who love to interact with other dogs and cats. Maria has ethology skills, therefore we can teach your cat/dog how to learn different commands.
Our motivation to be pet sitters is that recently we needed someone to take care of our dog, Uala and we weren't able to find anyone nearby, so here we are trying to help others when they need their pets being taken care of, and on top of that Maria is a veterinary doctor. Back in Colombia, Maria had the opportunity to be a volunteer at a shelter for dogs and cats which allowed her to learn how to manage a huge volume of dogs and cats. Due to the latter we would be able to recieve 2 dogs at a time and cats we rather baby sit them at their home in order to avoid stress for them. As for our cat, she is a dog-friendly, whenever there isn't a dog that wants to play catch me if you can with her. We would love to host your dog as part of our family and take care of your cat at his/her home.

    Maria and Balta are amazing! They cared for our dog, Jane, at their home during the day. They were excellent communicators leading up to the stay and I received updates throughout the stay. As the week went on, I could tell my dog grew more and more comfortable with them and looked forward to her daily vacation with Maria, Balta, and Uala. Thank you for being taking such wonderful care of our dog!

    Maria en Balta hebben een kleine week voor onze drie poezen gezorgd. Ruim van te voren een plezierige kennismaking gehad en tijdens de zorgweek regelatig filmpjes en foto’s gekregen. We zijn erg tevreden over Maria en Balta en kunnen hen aan iedereen aanraden die een betrouwbare, deskundige en plezierige oppas zoekt.

    I am a Veterinarian and Animal Scientist, who's worked in an animal clinic. I have experience with managing shelter dogs who are usually difficult ones to handle. I can administer medicaments, cut your pet's nails if it is a small-medium pet. I can help you train your , because I may teach your pet some commands, but discipline and repetition will lead to success.
