I adore dogs and have had them all my life growing up in the countryside in The Netherlands. As a result, I have extensive experience caring for and training dogs. Last year, while studying at LSE in London for my Masters in Environmental Economics, I rescued and raised a baby pug. He had some medical issues due to neglect and was not trained, so I build up his health and training by taking him to the vet and training him at home. I have since brought him to my parents in The Netherlands when I started working full time in finance. As well as owning my own dog in London, over the last 4 years, I have sitted many dogs of my friends as well as through dog sitting apps. In my free time, I love to run and go for long walks, and I often take my friends' dogs with me to the park.
I live in Marylebone in a cozy dog-friendly apartment, which is located close to Regent's Park. My apartment is on the 4th floor in a nice apartment building with an elevator and have no balcony or garden, but am very close to Regent's Park where I take dogs that stay with me every few hours for a long walk. I live with my partner who also has experience with dogs, and we have no other pets at home at the moment.
At the moment I am between jobs and I would like to use my free time to sit dogs in the neighborhood. I am currently free during the day and evenings from 8am to 10pm for dogwalking and sitting, except for when I travel. I am available to take care and walk your dog both during the week and weekends in central London.
I offer dogwalking, up to twice a day and my walks are usually 2 hours each, but can be longer on request. I also offer dogboarding, whereby the dog can stay at my apartment and I make sure to spend the entire day with the dog and not leave him or her alone. The dog will sleep in the large living room/dining area (see pictures above) which I dog-proof before boarding like making sure all cables are stored and all doors are closed. I allow the dogs in the other rooms as well as I keep an eye on them.
With my experience and deep love for dogs, your dog will be in good hands while you're working or away. Please let me know if you have any questions!
