I am a nature and animal lover. I understand what it is to love your animals and simply don't have the time or the energy to give them what they need. This is why to me this is not just a job, it is a service to contribute to your pet's health and happiness.
So here I am to give you a hand :)
In 2018 I spent six months volunteering with horses and dogs in particular houses. During this time I had the opportunity to learn about positive education and training. I then discovered a new whole world of non-oral communication that it has not ceased to amaze me to this day. I opened my profile in Pawshakes as well as to volunteer as foster family for an organisation with the aim to build up experience and confidence in dealing with different dogs and animals. Thanks to this decision I met wonderful people that have given me the courage to take this a step further and join a dog training course. My aim is to develop skills that helps me to create healthy relationships between pet and owners as well as to provide guidance before getting a dog. My dream is that there is a future without stray dogs nor dogs in the shelters.
What do I do for pets?
I am an active hiker and talker (also with animals, yes!) that loves outdoor activities. However, as a Spaniard, I know when it is time to relax and get some time off.
I can offer a relax environment with clear guidance for dogs as well as offering basic training and assistance in your day-to-day challenges.
What can you expect from me?
I am reliable, independent and caring. It is important to me to get to know you and your animal friend and that you trust me. This is why I offer a first meeting (free of charge) in which I expect an open communication line that goes both ways: you can ask me anything you want and I will also ask a lot of questions so I can make sure we are a good match.
At this moment I live with my partner Jochem in a house with a fenced garden in Arnhem Zuid (about 10 minutes bike ride from Arnhem central station). If you are interested in the day care service or dog boarding (the dog stays at my place a day or a night), then I will offer you to meet me in my house. For any other services I usually come to you (note that additional charges may apply if you leave more than 2.5km from my location 6833CS).
I prefer to arrange things in advance but I also take last minute requests into considerations because life it's not always predictable.
Do you want to meet me and have a walk together with your dog or see me interact with your cat? Then send me a message and let's arrange a meeting. Meet&Greet are great for us to find out if I am the right person for your animal family. And if it happens that our personalities are just not compatible, they will let us know :)
Looking forward to meeting you and your animal friends!
Ik ben nu twee keer bij Alba geweest en heb een heel goed gevoel over haar . Ze heeft kennis van honden en is geïnteresseerd in de hond zelf . Ze respecteert de hond hoe ze is en heeft zich verdiept in de hondentaal. We zijn nu aan het opbouwen en wennen en heb er vertrouwen in dat Luna het heel fijn zal hebben bij haar ! Luna loeide al van plezier toen ze in de straat liep van haar huis dus dat komt wel goed ! Alba heeft een positieve benadering en dat vind ik erg prettig !
Alba was professional, punctual and our puppy loved her. She paid attention to the details to sit and to ensure a comfortable transition for the puppy. Communication was superb and noodles barely noticed we were gone. Definitely would recommend and we will be making use of her service again!
