About Dimitra

The reason I decided to become a pet sitter after almost 10 years of working as a data analyst/scientist is that I love to look after animals and make them happy. I love to play and teach them new things. Every time I am going to the park my dog is waiting for me patiently to pet every dog (or cat) we will meet. My devotion to animal welfare was well-known to those who know me since I was a child. I was volunteering for 14 years in animal shelters in Greece. All my free time was devoted to helping and supporting the difficult lives of those poor souls. I have three adopted cats and one dog. The two cats and the dog travelled for 3 days from Greece to come to the UK with me. Last year I adopted my little kitty from Cats Protection and she is the first British member of the family! Furthermore, my high interest in my pets' health and my background in biophysics lead me to read and use herbal medicine and homoeopathy with excellent results and I can help you with information (books, articles, documentaries, lectures) if you are interested. I will not come to your house to 'do a job' but to make your fur babies happy. I fostered dozens of animals that found their forever families. I even looked after kittens and puppies that were found in rubbish bins and the possibility of survival was very low, but we did it. Because love and compassion can change even the worst situations in life. So no stress for you and your pets, they will have a great time with me because I care both for them and you🐾🐾🐾

Such a lovely person, she is very kind to my dogs and I can honestly say they adore her. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking a dog walker or dog sitter.

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English & Other
+20 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
After two decades with rescue animals, I can say that I met the most stressed, scared and abused animals. I read books, and articles and most of all I observed them. Because no book or course can really help you if you don't have experience in a situation. We don't speak the same language so to understand each other we need patience and compassion to help an animal trust us.
