I'm an alumnus with a graphic designer background that graduated in June 2019 from the combined Master's Scientific Illustration at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences at Maastricht University.
Since then, I have been working as a freelancer.
I was raised with the love of animals throughout my coming of age, however, my love for dogs was particularly powerful, so within a very short time, I became a dog person. This is how I fuel my love through them. My family's love for animals has always been tremendously strong, but it was only once I owned my own dog, I truly realized how strong my love for dogs is.
I currently own 3 dogs that live in Turkey with my family. I miss them a great deal because unfortunately, I can only be with them on my vacations. This longing made me decide to become a pet sitter to sustain my love for dogs. As the saying goes "always do whatever you enjoy the most in life."
This upcoming August will mark the 11th year of owning my first love, 'Çocuk', a golden retriever. A couple of years ago, our family number count jumped up to 13 all of a sudden by the addition of a lovely golden retriever that we found in a very pale and frazzled state. So we decided to rescue her off the streets. Once adopted, she gave birth to 11 healthy puppies. We allocated one of our rooms for comfort and living space to feed the puppies. The mother, 'Kızım', and the last born puppy, 'Karadut', are still enjoying a very healthy life. Apart from my dogs, I've also babysat some other breeds belonging to my friends, all of them happened to be large canines. In addition to that, I love grooming them as I do with mine twice a week.
Last but not least, 'Çocuk' was trained by a positive trainer at his young age who worked wonderfully for him and his future relations. I do believe positive training from the beginning always works for every dog out there, as every dog needs to be catered for and approached with care according to their characters. Their world is not much different from ours: they can be hurt, insulted and suffer from depression, just like human beings. Besides love, each of them has unique characteristics as their sensitivity differs a lot from one to another.
Our dog and cat have been 15 days/nights together with Berk, and they are really fond of him. So we could see afterwards that he has been very kind and professional to them. He has send us many updates during our holiday with photos and messages, and he kept to contact always in good informative and friendly way to us. We would definitively choose Berk again for our dog and cat. We can recommend Berk to everybody!!!
Berk was really considerate with our cat Jerry, really kind, friendly and helpful during our meet but also while we were away, sending us updates with pics and videos. He loves animals and will take good care of your pet.
I have experience with the following breeds: Labradoodle, Labrador retriever, Golden retriever, Anatolian shephard, Beagle, Flat coatedretriever.
