We are a Finnish/English couple in our mid to late twenties, that moved to Amsterdam a year ago. We both grew up with dogs around all our life, and we can both definitely say that our dogs were our best friends! We are both currently at university, which means that we have plenty of time to spend at home looking after dogs and pets; that is why we took up pet sitting! We enjoy the company of dogs and love to spend time with them! We are open to looking after dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes.
What we offer:
Our goal for every pet that we look after is to take care of them as if they were our own. When looking after your pets at our home, we always make sure not to have pets from other households staying with us at the same time; this means that we are able to give your pets our full attention and all our love! We live in a big, 100 square meter apartment, with a park right next to our house and great dog walking areas around! There is even a lake close by, so if your pet enjoys swimming we can take then out for a splash (don't worry, if your dog gets all muddy and dirty, we are able to give them a wash, so that you will get a nice clean and good smelling dog back home)! There is a lift in our building and no stairs in our apartment, so this is perfect if your dog has issues with stairs! If you have any questions about us, feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to answer any of your questions!
We are fine with last minute bookings, but we always require to arrange a meet and greet with new clients before accepting the booking!
Even though we are a couple, this doesn't guarantee that one of us will be at home all of the time to supervise. This would mean that your pet should be comfortable with being left alone for a few hours.
We love having pets at our house but we value our space as well! Hence, if your dog happens to break something or makes a mess, we will have to add an additional fee.
We love walkies! We offer a 1 hour dog walk, where we abide by your dogs pace and needs. Your dog will have plenty of time to do their business and have a good sniff around. If your dog isn't too social and can be a bit iffy around other dogs, just let us know and what tricks work for your dog to distract them (treats, sticks?). Your dog will come back home from a nice walk feeling relieved and happy!
Hello! I am Hans, someone who loves dogs and talks about them pretty much daily. I am an only child but my family had a cairn terrier (Rudi) who was like a brother to me. I am happy to say that I was able to spend 14 years with him and during those years I came to love dogs, not just Rudi, but many others that I have encountered and spent time with.
Hi, I'm Abigail! I've grown up with dogs around all my life. During my life there has only been 2 years when there wasn't a dog in my family home, and I can honestly say that those were the dullest years! I love spending time with dogs, whether it be going out for walks, brushing their coat, teaching new tricks, or just spending time together and cuddling. Apart from having my own dogs, there has been a large array of different dogs and breeds with different temperaments in my family.
