About Dafni

Hello pet lovers!

My name is Dafni, I come from Cyprus and I am currently studying at the University of Bonn, completing my degree in German-Italian Studies. While I love living, working and studying abroad, I can't help but miss my own family pets, that I had to leave behind with my parents in order to obtain my degree. I really miss being around animals, therefore, I would love to be able to take care of animals again, since they are tiny (or rather big) bundles of joy! I have had pets for as long as I can remember, and my love for animals has only grown stronger over the years.

Understanding how difficult it is for a person to leave a part of their own family behind with a stranger (as I myself, have been in that situation many times), I can assure you I will take my responsibilities very seriously, as I would expect someone else to take care of my own babies the same way. I have had my cat Angel for 16 years and my dog Trixy for 10 years, so I can take care of younger but also senior pets. I also have some equestrian experience ( 3 years under a certified teacher but 17 zears of amateur experience) therefore, upon getting to know your needs, I could also help out with horses. Sadly, my house is not suitable for sitting, therefore, I can only provide visits or overnight stays at your house.I also know and understand that the temperament and character of each pet is unique, and I am prepared to adjust my services in order to reflect the needs of your little darlings. If your pet requires any extra time or extra care, for example grooming or exta cuddles, I am more than happy to provide that. I will make sure to keep your house clean (kitty litter and garden included), your pets cuddled and well-fed in order to ensure that their needs are met and they have no added stress since they will undoubtedly miss you a lot already. I would be more than happy to check in with you by providing text messages and pictures of your furbabies so you know everything is under control. Any other simple chores like watering the plants or feeding other small animals are provided at no extra cost, just let me know beforehand! House visits would last 60 minutes, but if needed I can stay up to 90 minutes for the same price.

I can walk a maximum of 2 dogs at a time, in order to be able to give my full attention to each of them. They will be walked according to your instructions, and will be kept on their leash since their safety is my number one concern. Walks could last between 30 - 90, depending on the needs of your beloved dog.

I would love to meet up with you beforehand, that way you can determine whether I am right for your beloved pet, or ask me any other questions that you may have. I am also open to any questions or inquiries sent through the app.

I am looking forward to getting to know your four-legged loved ones !

Dafni hat sich sehr liebevoll und gewissenhaft um meine beiden Katzen gekümmert. Durch Videos, Fotos und Nachrichten war man die Katze Betreuungszeit über auf dem Laufenden.
