My name is Natalija, I'm an Au Pair in Dublin (Stillorgan)
As a dog sitter, dog trainer, and most importantly a dog mom I have over a decade of experience with dogs.
Big, small, affectionate, hyper, stubborn, nervous or even a dog with special needs, I've worked with them all and kept my professionalism. Sometimes I even went an extra mile when I learned sign language for a deaf puppy or learned French commands for the international dog.
Before we book anything, it would be the best to arrange meet and greet, discuss the routine and potential challenges and I will always always ask you to write down emergency numbers.
During my stay with your dog you can be 100% reassured that your best friend will be taken care of with professionalism and LOTS of love. You'll receive pupdates and photos all the time, I might even spam your Whats App with photos.
I like including dogs in my everyday activity: we might get coffee together, go to the store or, of course, just watch YouTube together.
My walks are usually around 30 to 60 minutes long and I always encourage dogs to follow their instincts like sniffing, hunting and exploring, if we are going through the forest or long grass I always check for the ticks or foxtails - no one wants those buggers to bother our babies.
At the end of the day I will tell you how was our experience together, were there any troubles or challenges and in some cases I will advise you to pay attention to the certain behavior (e.g. it could be as simple as pulling on the lead or something that might be worth visiting a vet).
I guarantee you that your dog will be entertained and well taken care of as he/she is my own.
*P.s. I also offer cat sitting, write me for more details!*
Natalija was absolute amazing, she was able to sit for Max at short notice and she took such good care of him. She gave us some great nutrition tips and training advice to help us with Max's separation anxiety. I highly recommend her, she has a way with pets!!! We will 100% book her again.
Natalija was great! Communication and prompt. Was great with my puppy and even taught her a new trick. Would recommend to anyone
As a dog trainer I am able to determine the main problem, educate the owners and formulate the solutions for correcting the existing or predicted dog's behavior (e.g. during walks: leash aggression, leash pulling...)
