Once upon a time, in a (not so) far away street, used to live an animal lover: Charlotte. Back in her country, she rode several horses for more than 15 years - caring for them and learning from them. She had a dog for 14 years - Nestor - who has been her confident and best friend (and still remember him dearly). She has been sharing the care of a cat - Mjöllnir - with her parents and sister for 5 years now.
Oh, I also usually don't speak about myself in the 3rd person!
Living in Dublin for the past 5 years made me realise how much I missed spending time with animals and nature. I enjoy going to the park (i.e. St Anne, Fairview Park, The Botanic Garden) or walk along the Clontarf Bay, and these moments could be shared with a pet who needs to exercise. Petting an animal has been proved to reduce stress - and to increase the amount of fur on your clothes.
For the past 6 months, I took care of 11 dogs on a (almost) daily basis. Each of them drove me crazy in its own way!
I didn't had a 'giant dog' size so far but I had dogs from chihuahua to lurcher size (and collie, terrier, retriever, cockapoo in between). Their age range was from 4 months old to 12 years old.
I usually did 1h walk with them, starting when I picked up the dog.
During my time with your pet:
- games will be played,
- love will be plenty,
- chasing the squirrels in the park will be a good exercise (regular walks are also available),
- socializing with other pets will be possible,
- water will be given (stay hydrated!),
- snacks and food will rain from the clouds (or just a reasonable height to pretend),
- cuddling for hours will be mandatory,
Please note, I cannot do long-term home boarding for dogs and cats for some landlord reasons :'(
But I can do daycare with your pet, at your home. We will agree on the hours and details (walks, food, entertainment, etc) beforehand for the comfort of your pet. I'm pretty flexible and I'm sure we can find an arrangement that would suits everyone.
I will treat your pet as mine for the time I will spend with it. No matter what size!
Charlotte was an absolute delight to deal with. She came and met myself and the dogs in advance of the pet sitting. Instantly she was playful with the dogs and you could see she has a natural love for animals. She stayed 3 nights and everyday sent me pictures of the dogs and kept me up to date. House was exactly how I left it, she was extremely respectful. Wouldn't leave my dogs with anyone else now!
Charlotte has been walking my 2yo border collie for the past year. Charlotte is very reliable and such a friendly person. My dog literally waits looking out the window, running around the house, waiting for her friend to pick her up so I can tell she absolutely loves Charlotte and their walks! I'd highly recommended Charlotte to anybody in need of a pet sitter, she's a true animal lover! Thank you! 🐶
