Hello! I've just moved back to the UK from Amsterdam, NL and am currently living with my boyfriend while he completes his Master's and I work from home as a freelance researcher. I've had a healthy fascination with pets my whole life, from cats and dogs to guinea pigs and hermit crabs, and have spent the last 6 years in Amsterdam pet-sitting through Pawshake. I had such great experiences and would love to continue pet-sitting here!
Professional Experience: I've worked in a dog and cat shelter in Bahrain (BSPCA) for 2 years, also fostering dogs with health or behavioural difficulties during this time. I was also a volunteer at London City Farm, where I handled a variety of domesticated animals. Perhaps most importantly, I was once studying to become a veterinarian at the Royal Veterinary College of London, meaning I've participated in quite some animal handling courses and take the health and wellbeing of all animals seriously!
Our Flat: Our flat is on the 1st floor in a apartment building on a private cul-de-sac. We have direct access to a large communal garden and are within 5 mins walking to two large parks. The flat is close to Stoke Newington overground.
Services: Because I work from home, I will be with your pet all day. For dogs, I offer 2-3 walks per day of up to 1 hour each, in addition to as many short 10 min toilet break walks as necessary. Because we live in a flat with a communal garden, there is lots of safe & fenced space for dogs to explore (supervised). Any pet guests will have the run of our flat, which comprises of 3 rooms, and are welcome to sleep where ever they are comfortable (including our bed). I am also very happy to do home visits/walks and house-sitting.
Feel free to send me a message if you have any specific quieries, I'm flexible and here to help!
Isabelle took great care of our Puggle, Jameson! She was responsive and really flexible, which made our trip a lot more relaxing :-).
Isabelle was very sweet with my dog and did a great job looking out for him. I also appreciated her flexibility and the lovely pictures she sent throughout his stay. Would absolutely recommend her services.
