Hello pet owners! My name is Sophie, and I am a 25-year-old from Australia. I am a Dutch-Australian dual citizen, however currently my Dutch is only at B1 level. I graduated from my Master's in animal behaviour and animal welfare at Utrecht University in December 2020. I am now available around Rotterdam and can travel to Delft and Den Haag. I am the daughter of an equine veterinarian and my extensive experience with animals is demonstrated in the skills section. I have worked with alpacas, primates, and horses.
I am motivated to become a petsitter due to the menagerie of beloved pets I have left at home. I miss them enormously! Prior to arriving in the Netherlands, I had two dogs, one lizard, one bird, one cat and two horses at home. I am extremely comfortable with all aspects of their care, many of these animals had been with me since I was a small child. Previously, I have owned tropical fish and a range of farm animals. I can offer a range of services. I am a responsible student, and also babysat and housesat during my entire Bachelor's degree, so I understand how to take care of someone else's home and pets.
Services: I can offer a range of services, and precise needs can be organised with me directly. These include home visits, overnight stays and dog walking.
Pet sitting - house visits can be arranged one or two times daily, depending on your needs. Services include feed and water, walking, cleaning of tank/cage, giving the pet attention, grooming and bathing.
Overnight stays in your home are also possible for pets needing more attention.
Dog walking - typically, I walked my dogs at home for 1 hour. This is my usual duration for a walk, however more or less time suits me as well. I am comfortable with up to four well-behaved dogs on a walk at one time.
If you have specific requirements do not hesitate to contact me.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Sophie took good care of our cats. She communicated with us daily, and posted photos of them with a little update. She kept everything clean and tidy. I’d definitely recommend her, and book her again.
Sophie was absolutely wonderful with our 2 fur babies. Our girls were happy and our home was left tidy and neat. We will definitely use her in the future.
