About Oskar

I've had a lifelong passion for animals, with over 34 years of experience caring for pets of all kinds. Growing up on a farm, I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs, including Tatra Shepherd Dogs, American Staffordshire Terriers, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and many more, as well as cats and other animals. While I'm not a certified trainer, I have assisted with dog training for obedience and protection dogs, and I have a natural talent for building rapport with animals. Above all, I simply adore all creatures great and small, and I'm committed to providing them with the love and care they deserve.

Working from home means that I have ample time to dedicate to caring for animals. Living in a village also provides easy access to nearby fields and woods, which offer great opportunities for outdoor exercise and exploration. I'm always eager to share my love of nature with furry friends and am committed to providing them with a safe and enjoyable experience in the great outdoors.

I understand that every dog has unique needs, and I'm fully prepared to accommodate them in my care. While I do have a fenced garden and can provide a cage if necessary, I believe that full immersion with animals is the best way to build trust and establish a genuine connection. That's why I always make sure to talk, play, and spend quality time with my furry friends, treating them with the same care and respect that I would offer a human friend. With me, your pet will receive personalized attention and the highest standard of care.

During our walks, I would let them sniff around and enjoy the fresh air, while also making sure they stay safe and don't get into anything they shouldn't. When we get back home, I would play fetch or tug-of-war with them, or maybe even teach them a new trick or two. Depending on the dog's energy level and preferences, we might also visit a nearby dog park or take a trip to the beach for a swim. Ultimately, my goal would be to keep the dog happy, healthy, and entertained while their owner is away.

Going away? Let me take care of your furry friend! Before dog-sitting, I'll make sure to ask about your dog's dietary needs, medications, routines, and any special preferences they have. That way, I can provide the best care possible and ensure your dog is happy and comfortable while you're away. Contact me today to schedule dog-sitting services!
