About Závith

I am a 23-year-old Colombian woman, currently studying Biobased Sciences at Wageningen University, and I have experience taking care of pets of various sizes and personalities. I was raised in Bogotá, a city known for its chaotic beauty. In 2016, I had my first pet-sitting experience with Vicente, who was my most significant teacher. He was an energetic and lovely English Springer Spaniel who, from a young age, posed a challenge due to his temperamental and energetic nature. He didn't tolerate anyone near his food, and no one could touch him when he was about to sleep. Furthermore, as he grew up, it became more challenging to take him for a walk because he pulled with greater force. His training process was lengthy, and along the way, I realized the importance of recognizing and addressing the limits and needs of pets. In his case, it was essential to provide him with space for food and sleep, while also engaging in plenty of playtime and running to release his energy.

In 2018, I moved to another Colombian city famous for its musical rhythms, such as Salsa. There, four rescued dogs became a part of my daily life: Checho, Lupe, Arena, and Perla. Checho was a medium-sized adult dog, highly skilled at detecting food in bags and snatching it. He was not very affectionate and preferred having his own space. His main needs revolved around walks and oral medications. Lupe was another medium-sized dog, very calm and protective, much like Checho, and she required walks and oral medication as well. Arena, a small-sized adult dog, would eat anything she found, including socks, headphones, and books. She didn't enjoy walking much but loved to wander outside. The main concern with her was keeping her safe and preventing her from getting lost or ingesting something harmful. Perla was a small-sized, young dog who was very timid, often hiding from new people and having a fear of water. She was very spoiled and constantly sought affection. Over time, she learned to trust humans more, although her fear of water always remained a concern.

In 2019, I returned to Bogotá, and during the pandemic, I adopted Luna, an adult Springer Spaniel who was highly affection-dependent and couldn't be left alone for even a moment without crying. Just like with Vicente, one effective way to deal with this situation was to go for regular runs with her. When necessary, I also took care of two family cats, Matilda, who was quite distant, and Lorenzo, who was very spoiled. Taking care of them required less time, but it was equally full of love.

Now that I am embarking on a new stage of my life in Wageningen, I would like to spend time and share love with your pets, each with their unique characteristics that make them special.
