Hi! My name is Sophie. I am 29 and work/study as a doctoral researcher at Leiden University and have lived in The Hague since July 2020. I have been a pet sitter for over 6 years. I have a very flexible schedule and would like to put my free time at use while taking care of animals. I have a lifetime of experience with pets, thus I consider myself an experienced caretaker and a trustworthy pet sitter.
I grew up in the Belgian countryside in a home that always revolved around pets (cats and dogs). I have always been an animal lover since my youngest age, thus I also had many small pets that I loved to take care of. I regularly take care of pets for friends away for holidays, as well as through online services such as Pawshake. My experience ranges from daily visits for food and care to weeks of house sitting, in many different countries.
I feel confident with dogs, cats, birds, and small pets (rabbits, rodents, fish, ...). While you are away, I will make sure to give your pets the love and care they deserve, while being mindful of any preferences you communicated. I pay extra attention to details and will make sure they feel as comforted as possible during your absence. I would love to cuddle, go on walks, or play with them - promise I'll send loads of pictures!
Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions or references.
See you soon! A bientôt!
🏡 about my home
I live alone in a 90m2 appartment with a small terrace located right across a very large park (Zuiderpark). I accept cats and small dogs for home boarding. I live on the second floor and it is usually very quiet. I have a large living room, a separate guest room, and a separate office, with plenty of comfy spaces to cuddle and play.
⭐️ about my habits
I am notoriously clean and organised. At your home or mine, this will always be a key feature.I love going on walks. Should you leave your dog with me, rest assured that they will spend plenty of time outside everyday!
⌚️ about my schedule
My job allows me to work from home (or anywhere else) and organise my own schedule as I see fit, which gives me a lot of freedom and flexibility.Don't hesitate to tell me what your pet's usual schedule is like so that I can accommodate as much as possible.

Wat een fijne, intelligente en empathische vrouw is Sophie! Iedere dag een uitgebreide update over Marley. Heb mij geen moment ongerust gemaakt. Zeer zeker aan te bevelen.
All kitty's and duckies are in love with Sophie.
