Hello I am new to Gent and moved here form Philadelphia, USA. I recently lost my dog (trixie you see in the pictures) who I had for ten years and moved from the U.S to Belgium with me. I live in an apartment with my boyfreind right at Zuid, directly across from the park. Its perfect for dog walks, and centrally located for me to come to you, wherever your little sweetie is used to :)
I have raised two of my own dogs over the years, and my parents always had 2 or 3 at a time. We also had cats growing up, so needless to say, I have always been around animals and have a deep love for them!
I have expereince with higher energy dogs, and timid/shy- I understand you need to tailor your attention to them based on what they need and get to know each other first! I volunteered for a local shelter in the past (thats where I ended up finding my doggies). I have enjoyed using pawshake for the last 2 years living here in Gent with trixie - and had a wonderful experience with the girls watching her when I would travel.
Now I would like to pay it forward and be there for someone who is in need of someone reliable and understanding to walk their dog, or visit and take care of them while on a getaway. I am happy to come to you if in reasonable distance from me in Gent, as I know they are normally more comfortable in their own environement and schedule.
I do work full time at UGent doing research, but I'd like to be available for anyone who would like to have help with dog walks or while you're away -
just message me! I am very reliable and trustworty as I've always stuck to a good schedule with my own dog and I know the importance of that, despite when our lives may have other plans. It's imprtant to ask for help and know you can have trust worthy people around in your neighborhood and house. I've moved around a bit over the years and I always found it put me at peace to meet local people and even make friends with the people around me that you can ask for favors such as walking or helping with your pet.
I currently only speak English, but am trying to learn Dutch. You can find me at a local cafe with a cappicuinno, doing Crossfit, or at Zuid park! I look forward to hearing form you soon.
Thank you so much Katie for taking care of our little guy Elijah. Everything was perfect, and we especially loved getting an update on him everyday! I think he has found a new friend in you :).
Perfect, as always!
