About Kenneth

Hello all pet owners! I am Kenneth from Hong Kong, who has just moved to South Shields with my wife and our dog, Chico. We have lived in Europe for almost 9 years before, I graduated from the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences with a degree in Physiotherapy, while my wife is an opera singer, pianist, and music teacher. We both love animals, that is why we adopted Chico from Spain 8 years ago. I have always worked as a part-time pet sitter in the Netherlands, while my wife helped me out when she was at home. After around three years, my profile has gradually been piled up with a lot of happy guests.

I will be offering the following services:

1. Dog boarding service in our house

I have hosted multiple dogs in the Netherlands, they have always returned home happy and healthy, but since we are new here and we have just got a grand piano, I shall not host more than two dogs for the moment. When you reach me, I will invite you for a meet and greet in which your dog could get to know us, and I could hear your needs. If both you and your dog feel comfortable with us, we could then confirm the booking. The time for check-in and check-out at our place is totally flexible.

During the meet and greet, I would love to know:
- how many walks your dog would need in a day, and how long they should be;
- at what time I should prepare breakfast and dinner for him/her;
- if he/she would have something that I should take special care of, such as allergic reactions to certain food, anxious reactions to certain thing, or medications.

We live in a 3-bedroom house with a fully fenced backyard, your dog will have enough space to move around. During the day, we will bring him/her to the seaside with Chico, where he/she will have a huge area to run and play.

We kindly ask you to bring the food for your dog, as Chico's meals are prepared by my wife, we do not have kibbles at home. I will wash their bowls after every meal. If you have any special requests, please feel free to let me know.

Some of my guests would like to bring their own bed or crate, it is totally fine with us.

During your dog's stay, I will always keep you updated with videos and photos. I can guarantee that he/she will be safe, healthy, and happy.

2. Dog daycare service in our house

Like dog boarding service, we could arrange a meet and greet beforehand, and I will not host more than two dogs for the moment. The time for check-in and check-out is also totally flexible. 

I will make sure your dog is well accompanied and gets enough exercise, and I will keep you updated with videos and photos.

3. Dog walking service

I would come to your house to hear about your dog's need before I give him/her the first walk. Please let me know at what time and for how long you would like the walks to be, I will come to your place on time and give you updates after the walks.

4. House visits for cats

I would also come to your place for a meet and greet with you and your cat. I must introduce myself to the master, write down what he/she needs, and when I am needed. Besides offering food and water, I would spend time with the master until he/she is happy, and I will give you updates after the visits.

Lastly, we are very happy to share that we are expecting a baby now:) We want to continue hosting doggies so our kid can learn respect and empathy towards life and the nature. Please feel free to contact me, I am looking forward to meeting your furry kid!:)
