Over Déspina

Hello! My name is Déspina Kortes! I grew in the countryside of Greece, and since ever I was surrounded by animals. Since I couldn't bring my pets with me when I moved in Amsterdam, your sweet pets could be my new furry friends... I recently finished my research master’s degree in neuroscience from the University of Amsterdam, but since I am looking to branch out from academia, and I started freelance working, I have a lot of flexibility to go back to one of my earlier favorite activities: being around and working with animals!

My primary motivation for taking care of animals is twofold; firstly as someone that grew up next to animals, but also studied their behavior (my bachelor degree is on biology), I want to help out pet owners to provide a good life and proper treatment to their pets. Pets bring to their owners countless moments of joy and reasons for inspiration, and it is only fair that we -as a society- give something back and keep them as happy as possible.

Also, while I was studying in Greece, during my bachelor's degree, I was volunteering in an adoption center. There I worked as a dog and cat carer for stray animals until somebody could adopt them. My main task was spending time with the animals, and taking them for walks, priming them to actual human interaction and affection. Which brings me to the second part of my motivation: I am convinced that my interaction with pets from my childhood to adulthood made me content and feeling whole and I miss providing for them, but also learning from them (and that is very important for me!). Having pets, we all agree that apart from being super sweet creatures, they teach empathy, humility and everlasting good-willingness to whoever is willing to pay attention!

Animals made my life so much richer, and I would like to help other animal owners, by giving them peace of mind that they leave their pets in good hands, while being busy, as I know how important they are in their lives!

I live in Amsterdam Oost, very close to Artis and Oosterpark. I typically go running in Oosterpark, so I know its corners almost by heart. It has great areas to take pets to.

Since I am offering home boarding and daycare, here are some practical details that you might want to know:

  • I live in a spacious 2 bedrooms house, with a spacious fully fenced, safe-for-pets garden. The house is spread in two floors separated by some stairs, but even small dogs are comfortable going up/down. In any case, I will always offer a carrying-hug-of-help if your furry friend is stuck middle-way on the stairs.
  • I can take your cute dog for 3-4 walks per day; 2 short ones in the morning and evening for their number 1 and 2 needs, and 2 long ones (~30 minutes/walk) during the day for some serious running/throw the stick/stretching in the park. :)
  • I am mainly working from home so I will spend the majority of the day with your pet. In any case, I have a great, animal-loving roommate that is always happy to cover me if a have a chore outside the house.
  • Guest pets are allowed to sleep in the living room or in my bedroom, whatever they feel comfortable doing, in their bed, or if they are extra lovely on my bed too.

    After a great first experience with her, I immediately went back to Déspina for dog-sitting this past week while I was traveling again - she was great again and super flexible in helping with my schedule and taking care of my dog Neely for 4 nights. She really cares a lot for Neely and is very easy to work with - definitely recommending her services again!
