Hi! My name is Rute and I'm 25 years old. I'm a portuguese dog lover living in Gent. I'm also working in Gent (mon-fri, 8-9h/day) and in my free time I like to go for walks, meet with friends and travel. My boyfriend lives close by and he is also passionate about pets, so he is always looking forward to help me out with petsitting!
I like to describe my services as flexible and honest. I always ask what are the needs of your pet and I will fulfill them as well as I can. If I see that I won't be able to provide you and your pet(s) a good service, I prefer to let you know so you can make an informed decision! Keeping pets happy should be everyone's drive!
I am available on weekends or in the evening of weekdays, when I can offer my full attention to your pet! Although my street has some space without passing cars, I don't have a garden and my house is small (you can see the pictures) so I only accept onboarding for (two) small pets. If it is only for a day, I can accept a bigger dog and take it outside more frequently, so that they have the space they need and deserve! During the week sometimes I have to go to work, so when booking I always ask if your pet is ok with staying a few hours by him/herself in case I need to go. Feel free to send me a message and we can definitely discuss this further! Regarding the walls, when I have dogs over I usually go for a walk in the morning, one in the evening and another one before going to sleep. The duration depend on the dogs needs, but never less than 10 min! I can also go to your place and take care of your pets there!
Back at home, ever since I remember, I was surrounded by pets and my passion for dogs developed from early age. Currently I have two dogs there, Leão and Lili. Leão is a medium-size male, the oldest one. He is a stray dog, we adopted him from the street when he was just a baby and he grew to be the smartest dog I have ever encountered. Lili is a female portuguese breed "Rafeiro Alentejano". She is big, majestic and eccentric. Although they have really different personalities, they are both polite and well educated. You can check their pictures in my profile. :)
I really miss being around these extraordinairy beings and, due to my agenda, I cannot own a dog myself here yet. However I can offer my services to help dog owners! I can walk them arround and even help to educate them if you wish! :) Just let me know how I can help you!
Rute takes really good care of my vivaceous doggy. He’s always happy to go to her and she’s even teaching him some manners when he tries to steal something again 🤭..
Rute is an excellent dogsitter.
Great communication throughout the day, she sent several pictures.
She even taught him a new trick.
I can tell that Atlas had a lot of fun. Definitely would recommend her.
See you a next time 🐾
Experience with dogs since I am 3 years old. :)
