My name is Francesca, 20, I come from a small farm town in Chile and moved to Brussels a couple years ago and I currently study Social Sciences at the VUB. I speak English and Spanish fluently and am currently taking Dutch courses.
Oh and ignore the average response time on my profile I am currently available and will respond asap:)
I used to have all types of pets back at home, dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens,goats, horses and turtles. I get along very well with animals and enjoy playing With them and caring for them, also I have trained many of my dogs basic skills. I can take care of almost any animal, and I am a fast learner.
I have done plenty of dog walking around brussels and I know almost all of the nice parks, including where they can be set free. .
I do not own a car or a bicycle so I move around with public transport.
The walks depend on the size and needs of the dog, but the average would be one hour.
I am a student so I am usually home all day to the exception of times I have doctor appointments which last max 3 hours. Your pet will never be alone since I have roommates, so in case something is needed when I am out it will be managed immediately (only whom I trust completely, And this wouldn’t be a recurring occurrence). Apart from that, I am 24/7 at my kot.
I live in a student residence of my university, I have roommates with whom I share facilities such as kitchen/bathroom, but my bedroom is closed off and that is where your pet would stay. It is not a very big room but they are allowed to be anywhere they want, and if your pet is bigger the walks would be more often/longer. In my room I have a bed and a sofa bed so wherever your pet rather sleep they can do so anywhere they would like, as well as space on the floor if that is preferred. There is a backyard in my building, but it sometimes closes due to COVID; fortunately there is a park where you can set your dogs free around 200m away. The backyard is secure and there is no way for your pet to escape. My room has a balcony which is safe but I tend to avoid, it is well closed off from the bedroom as well. I left some pictures on my profile so you can check it out :)
The room is safe although it can be too small for larger dogs when dog boarding. So if your pet is too large I sadly cant accept as Im not able to ensure the best possible space in that case. For day care, walking, visits, house sitting, I can manage all sizes. When house sitting I would typically stay most of the day but as well it depends on what you need/prefer.
The home visit hours and amount of time are completely flexible to what your pet needs. I am mostly available at midday until night time, since I have online mandatory classes in the morning.
one of the reasons why I wanted to do this is because now that I live in a small kot, I miss playing with animals, or just the company they provide,. I have so much love and respect for animals, I treat my pets back home as part of the family, so your little (or big) fella will be more than alright with me. :D
Francesca took care of my chihuahua as it was her own! Communication was great and she sent me pictures & updates every day.
I can only recommend her! It’s a trustful person with a definite love for pets :)
