Hello and welcome to my pet sitter site. I am Barbara (27) and I am an absolute animal lover. I grew up with a lot of different animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters and a horse. So basically, I have always been surrounded by animals. Professionally, I’m an ecologist and behavioural biologist and specialised on mammals. For some time, I worked in Central Africa collecting behavioural data on gorillas and elephants, so I do not only love pets, but all more-or-less-furry organisms. Besides caring for my own pets and monitoring wild animal populations, I used to volunteer in an animal shelter for dogs in Spain where I worked with many traumatized dogs. It was also there that I found three little puppies that were abandoned by their owner. And guess what, of course I hand-reared them and brought them back to Germany. One of them is the little guy bottle-feeding on one of the photos above and another one is the big black one that my family back in Germany kept. Me and my partner recently adopted our dog, Simba, a rescue from Turkey. Simba is ca. 8 months old and is settling into his new life with us very well. As I really enjoy being surrounded by animals and caring for them, I'd love to help you out and look after your dog, too! I am happy to take your dogs for walks or have him at my place during the day. Of course, we will make sure that your dog and Simba get along! I have a lot of experience with dogs. I am also used to large and strong dogs, so don’t worry if your best friend is one of this kind. I love going for long walks and I will always try to find the most natural spot in the area to take your dog and our Simba. Right next to my apartment block is a dog free-running area where we always meet lots of other dogs to play with. In case your doggie prefers a calmer walk, we will just go for nice long walks along the canals. To me it's most important that your animal is happy. I will adapt to his/her character and give him/her the time (s)he needs to adapt to me, Simba and possibly new surroundings. I will also make sure to keep you informed on how everything is going so that you are not worried. If you have any questions, please contact me. You will trust me with your beloved pet, so I am happy to answer all your questions!
Barbara was great! Garoto was happy and that is the most important opinion.
Barbara took great care of Nubia, she was super attentive and patient - my dog is rescued and has some traumas.
Barbara did everything as I asked her and I would definitely use her services again and also recommend her to other pet owners.
