About Manuel

Hello fellow dog friends, my name is Emmanuil and I'm Greek/Italian. Eight years ago, when I still lived in Greece, I walked in the streets of an old village. Suddenly, I heard noises coming from an old, destroyed house and I went to investigate. At the door of the destroyed house I found two puppies of mixed Labrador breed. The puppies were dirty and they had nothing to eat or drink. I certainly couldn't leave them there, this would have been fatal for them.

I decided to return to the village and ask around whose dogs they were. Of course, no one felt responsible and came forward. That’s when I decided to take the dogs home. I took great care of them, I bathed them, gave them food and something to drink and also took them to the vet. I wanted to keep the puppies and continue to take great care of them, however, my living situation didn’t allow for two dogs. So, I found another animal friend for one puppy to take amazing care of and love them for the rest of their life. The other one, Pluto, has stayed with me ever since. Shortly after, I took in another cat I found in the streets. After 1 month she gave birth to 6 beautiful kittens, whom I found great homes for. Lastly, I rescued Nina, a hamster, who almost died of suffocating heat. They enjoyed a great life with me. Right now, I still have Pluto with me.

Certainly, although I love my pet, I couldn’t and can’t always bring him along with me everywhere. So, sometimes I had to rely on either family and friends to take care of my furry friends, or leave them in the hands of a skilled dog sitter. Six months ago, I moved to Brussels and I would like to offer the same piece of mind to you when you can’t bring along your dog. If you leave your loved one with me, you can rest assured that they will get enough fresh air, movement and cuddles. I would love to take your dog(s) for a walk, together with Pluto, and play with them outside. We take walks of at least 45 minutes at the park (Park Josaphat), where there is also a fenced area where the dogs can run freely.

Although Pluto is a very friendly dog and gets along well with most other dogs, I would like to have a first meet & greet to see whether they match well. Then you will also get to know my partner. She works from home and will be there, whenever I can’t. She also accompanies us on all walking tours and will be there for the meet & greet, too.

We are eager to get to know you and your furry friend and hope to welcome him/her soon!

Best,

Manuel

Doggy Day Care

Manuel and Alexa were excellent dog sitters for our dog Toby. They came in advance to meet with him and kept in good contact while we were away. They have their own dog and so are very experienced and comfortable with how to handle other dogs. An added advantage for us is that they live close by so it was very easy to arrange everything. Would totally recommend them.
