Hello! I am Indian and my husband is Dutch. We live in Utrecht. I am a marketer by profession who also loves animals, especially dogs. I've been a mum to two doggos of my own.
I am a patient, fun & motivated person to whom animals bring a lot of joy & I guess it's mutual! And a strong advocate of the fact that animals are extremely smart, determined and not to be taken for granted :)
I am here to help foster or take care of Dogs/Cats or other pets for people who are away for a while or just need help. In the last 1 year, a lot of people have adopted pets (young dogs/cats) and are still learning how to bring up their pet pooch! I am here to also help new pet parents learn a bit more about their lovely Pooch and make a difference, making them both feel more connected to each other! Prior to this I have successfully worked with animal shelters & families for Dogs, especially with behavioural issues, puppies & older dogs of any breed, size or gender!
1. What to expect from me:
I'm well versed with the kind of exercise & feeding routines pets may have & I'm also equally focussed on discipline, hygiene & affection accordingly. I can also help dogs with behaviour issues, calm down, get lots of exercise and help train them! I can provide and take care of any Medication (including injectibles)
2. About our House:
Our house is in Lombok in Utrecht. For older dogs there is no problem of climbing stairs. We have a small backyard, lots of parks & the waterfront around; Especially -
- 'Molen Ster' or Molen Park
- Park Oog in Al
- Pebble Street (cremerstraat)
for the dogs to interact/play with other dogs Or just have a lovely long walk in... You can check the location(s) on Google map! For puppies, our house is Puppy proof that provides a happy warm and cool place (depending on the weather), there is no chance of escape and there is a lovely little backyard to play fetch in :)
3. Day Care Routine for Dogs staying with me:
Walking the dog(s) or caring for them at our house is highly preferred by me. I do atleast 1 long morning walk to one of the parks and socialise the pets with other pets and people (45-60 min). I also normally do 4 dog walks per day. We take our regular dogs to the Woods or the beach every once in a while too :)
In case you're running late for work and have a dog at home that needs a good walk/feeding/playtime , I can also make a home visit. Please read my home visit schedule below
4. My home visit schedule:
I can visit pets in their homes, especially Cats/Rabbits or Dogs. It's great if the house is not too far away from our house because I bike my way around. 15-20 minutes of biking to your house works for me. In case I have to take public transport to visit your house due to a longer distance, I'll be happy to help and request you to reimburse my travel expenses :)
While home visiting pets, I normally spend 30-45 min for a good walk and feeding or playtime. I can make 1-3 visits a day depending upon the distance/requirements of the pet.
I'm comfortable with Big/Giant dogs, female or male. Young or Old! Cats or any other pets
5. Do I keep multiple pets?
Depending on the health/breed & behaviour of dogs, I do not keep more than 2 dogs at a time. The dogs will be together only when I know they are friendly and with all due information to the Pet's parent and only if they are okay with the other Dog. In all cases dogs get along very well and since I have repeat clients, most times I have 2 Dogs. But it goes without saying that this is our home and we do not run it as a boarding centre so Only when I know my regular Dogs and a New dog by his/her behavior, I take in another one! Until now, It has been very healthy & Happy and good for them to socialise with each other in a different environment :)
6. Treating Dogs/Cats with anxiety, eating issues or other health issues:
I am very open to having Dogs or treating Cats or other Pets with any anxiety, fears or health issues! I have been working a lot in India and here with various breeds and dog behaviours and all I have learnt is to be calm & patient & give them lots of exercise & treats and let them relax and have a vacation in our place :)
7. Supervision, Sleeping & Moving around:
The Pet(s) will not be left alone for more than 30-60 min (if I need to go for some work) The dogs will not be leashed or tied up, they get a free area to move & follow me around. They sleep in their bed in our living room, we keep the temperature regulated for the pet's comfort! I am a freelance Digital marketer & a potter, who works from Home. I am not on calls all day & therefore can spend plenty of time with the Pets. Please check my Availability on my calendar... I am easily available to respond on Pawshake. We have no kids or other pets in our house
8. What if my Dog is not castrated/In Heat
In case your dog falls in this category, please feel free to let me know so I can make arrangements accordingly, like not have a girl who's in heat or a boy dog that will a trouble maker for another dog :) It's No problem, so do not worry!
'My aim is to send back home a happy Pup or leave behind a happy Kitty and a happy parent(s)!'
My Dutch proficiency is very basic, Ik spreek een beetje Nederlandse :) If that's not an issue with you; Do ping me in!
Thanks for reading my profile and hoping you can trust me with your baby (ies)
