Hi all, my name is Liz and I am at your service. Want a trusty sitter with a big heart and devotion to caring for pets? Look no further.
- I live in Voorburg and have flexible hours, but am working from home during the pandemic (I am a student with two side jobs)
- I have experience with many breeds and sizes of dogs, cats and rabbits
- I have three years of sitting experience (walking, boarding, home visits) and have had 4+ pets my entire life
- I live in an area with tons of green spaces.
Longer description: 'You have many friends and hobbies, but you are your pet's only friend and their life revolves around you.' I always keep this in mind in my interactions with domestic animals, taking extra care to give them love and provide a sense of safety and security. By interacting with pets all my life I've come to understand how sensitive they are and how complex their emotions are, and I try my best to go beyond just being a sitter or a walker to an actual pet lover. Growing up, we'd always have at least two cats and two dogs in the house. At the moment my parents have three cats and three dogs, all of whom I love dearly. After one of my mom's cats passed away recently, we gave her a kitten. And what a joy she has been! I miss her dearly and wish I could watch and help her grow. I love being in a house full of animals, but my life doesn't allow that at the moment. But I have two awesome bunnies who I spend time with. I love them to death and provide them the best care possible. And although the bond between a pet sitter and the animals they sit will never be the same as that of a pet owner and their animals, I try my best to simulate my relationship with my own pets when sitting others' animals. I have been a sitter on Pawshake before (see my photos), but took a break after I temporarily moved to a different city and worked full-time. I missed petsitting immensely in this period and would now like to do it again. I keep my own rabbits separate from the pets I sit (for their sake - most of the dogs or cats don't mind rabbits at all, but rabbits are prey animals and don't like other animals). They are currently on my balcony and will move to their own room during the winter.
I reserve the right not to sit complex or aggressive animals, as it can stress me out a bit. For this reason, I’d appreciate arranging an ‘orientation meeting’ to see if we’re a good fit.
About my place: I live in a three-level apartment where pets can be at ease, roaming freely and sleeping where they are happiest. I love dogs with me in bed, and most of them end up sleeping in my room 🙂 Most pets do just fine with the stairs, but I can also carry them if need be. Voorburg is a place full of parks and green strips, so your dog can sniff around happily and get plenty of exercise. I can even run your dog, as I am a runner!
About my services: I board one pet at a time (unless they are of the same owner). I rarely leave the house at the moment, so pets get tons of attention, also from my housemate Luciana who is also a sitter and loves animals. I never leave pets unattended for long periods of time. I walk with dogs as often as they are used to, at least half an hour per walk, and while I do spoil them, I try to also let them stick to their routines as much as possible. I love giving cuddles and conversing with the pets I sit. They truly are my furry friends!
Dórus is een uitdagende lieve pup van 4 maanden. Liz heeft heel lief voor hem gezorgd. Ze heeft veel ervaring met het oppassen op honden en is geduldig en lief!
Liz has taken excellent care of our dog. I believe he had a blast looking at how happy he was in the pictures that Liz was sharing regularly at the end of every day. If he could talk, I bet he would say that it just felt like home. I highly recommend Liz for your pet care. Thanks Liz :)
I have experience in administering medication (no injections, though).
I have tons of experience with puppies and kittens and I love looking after them!
