I am an American living in the Netherlands for many years. I love cats
and dogs, so I signed up on Pawshake to meet more animals while making some extra money. I have grown up with retrievers, and currently have the sweetest 10-year-old black lab, Charlie. Other breeds I have cared for include, but are not limited to: Portuguese Water Dog, Australian Shepherd, Wheaton Terrier, Cane Corso, Friese Stabij, Galgos, Corgi and American Stafford. Most of my experience is with medium to large dogs, but I am comfortable caring for dogs of all sizes.
I am currently available for dog walking, and I hope to find a few dogs that regularly need to be let out on Fridays as well as another dog to add to my 16:00 Wednesday route around Cornestyn. I am also available for house sits (up to two weeks). I do not own a car, so I only care for animals within biking distance of Leiden.
For housesits, it is important that animals can be left on their own for several hours at a time. While my employer is flexible with me working from home, I do sometimes have to go into my office in The Hague. I can tend to necessary small house maintenance (i.e., mail, plants, garbage). I am comfortable administering oral medication. Depending on the character of the pet, I would be willing to administer injections after a demonstration from the owner. For longer dogsits, it would be lovely if my dog, Charlie, could join me and make new friends. He is a 10-year-old Labrador who is friendly with other dogs and used to having cats at home.
I have also grown up with cats, and I do my best to charm every cat I meet. Most of the time I am successful. I think it is because I know humans serve cats, not the other way around. I will spend time with your cat(s) and tend to their needs, whether that means leaving them in peace with a clean litter box or actively playing with them.
Andrea is excellent at keeping us informed on how things went, and great at communication in general. Our labrador seems to love her and we feel he’s in very good hands with her!
Andrea took great care of our cat and houseplants and sent us pictures every day for the 3 weeks we were away! We will book her again for sure and highly recommend her!
