About Alejandra

◇─◇──◇─────◇──◇─◇CURRENT RANGE◇─◇──◇─────◇──◇─◇

I live in the Smithfield area of Dublin. My coverage limit is currently 30 minutes walking distance from Montpellier Hill for any of the offered services.

HOWEVER, if you are out of this range: I will charge a small extra fee to cover transportation fee (Bus / Luas) - just DM me to try and reach an agreement.

◇─◇──◇─────◇──◇─◇Introduction◇─◇──◇─────◇──◇─◇

Greetings to everyone who comes to my profile. My name is Alejandra and I am a Spanish biologist.

Ever since I moved here I have loved the commitment that people have with their animals. While I study my PhD, I want to invest time doing the second thing that I love the most, and this is helping people take care of their furbabies, as much as I love taking care of mine.

I have had a few different pets through my whole life. I have had canaries, terrapins and a cat, my boy Minorín, who can be seen in one of the pictures that I have uploaded.

I am currently the proud fur mom of a young 2y.o. female border collie. I have had her since she was 2 months old and it is thanks to her that I have acquired most of my dog training skills and become accustomed to walk her in a safe and adequate way to her needs.

◇─◇──◇─────◇──◇─◇Experience◇─◇──◇─────◇──◇─◇

I have experience pet sitting cats mainly in Edinburgh from different breeds and therefore with different needs and hugely diverse personalities. I have been in charge of brushing them, feeding them, changing the litter and helping them with other issues, such as trimming long hairs close to their rear areas (those with long haired cats probably know what I am talking about).

When you trust me with your pet, either feline, canine or other, I will follow your instructions carefully and pay attention to any special needs your pet may require, such as administering oral medicine and applying ear / eye drops when needed.

All in all, you can be sure that I will pay as much attention and be as careful with your pets as I would be with mine.

Dog walking

▼・ᴥ・▼

֎I will pick your dog - within 30mins walking distance of my area (Stoneybatter/Smithfield).

֎ I will bring treats unless you tell me not to use them / want to provide them yourself.

֎ If your dog gets wet because it is raining, I will dry him/her - Just give me a towel!

֎ Although I am comfortable with small and medium / medium-large sized dogs, I am not familiar with bigger breeds such as Great Danes and similar. I can very easily deal with a dog up to ~41 pounds (around 18kg), and I will be okay dealing with a bigger dog up to 55 pounds (around 25 kg). I am however happy to walk bigger ones provided they are well behaved or generally calm.

Home sitting - cats, dogs and others

₍⸍⸌̣ʷ̣̫⸍̣⸌₎ ▼・ᴥ・▼

֎ Completely customized length of stay - just DM me.

֎ Cats: I will change and/or clean the litter and take the bag with myself when I leave.

֎ If your pet requires medicine, I will be able to administer it as long as it is oral or drops. I am not accredited to provide injections or complicate procedures.

֎ Last minute home stay bookings: I might be able to accept these even from one day to another, but DM first to discuss options!

✏ General terms for staying over simply require you to have a decent place for me to sleep for the night and access to the kitchen / bathroom / internet. If your pet is used to sleeping with people, I will gladly let him/her sleep with me. I will feed and walk / play / pay attention to your pet as much as needed.

Dog Walking
Nupoor, 2021-10-29

Alejandra has been walking/pet sitting my dog Buddy from around a month now and I could not be more happy and relieved. She is very punctual with her time and also very responsible with my pets. Leaving my dog alone for hours with her makes me stress free. Her communication is apt and very clear. There were never any last minute changes to the schedule, which is a good commitment from her end. I find myself very lucky to have her. I would highly recommend Alejandra for dog walking and pet sitting as my dog loves her and seems very happy when I am back home.

Specific Skills

I speak English & Spanish
< 5 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
Can take care of exotic animals

I'm a biologist and I have an MSc acquired here at Edinburgh Napier University. As a biologist, I have a general knowledge of do's and dont's for pets, specifically the most common pets such as dogs and cats. Aside from that, I am a caring, patient person that rarely gets nervous and that likes to help as much as possible and whenever it's possible. One of my best traits is that I am very patient and will happily spend as much time as needed to get your pet to trust me and be comfortable around me, so that the experience is pleasant for all parties.
