Hello, my name is and I’m a passionate animal-lover!
I moved from Portugal with my husband, to Belgium not long ago! And until I can communicate in Dutch, with humans, I will dedicate myself to animals, because I understand that love is a universal language and we will understand each other without barriers.
At the moment I work from 9am to 5pm, which allows me to dedicate my earlymornings and evenings, during the week days, to your pet. And weekends at any time.
I grew up with cats and dogs and I can't imagine a home without our best four-legged companions! As I’m a traveler, I used a lot of pet-sitter services, but it was so difficult to make sure that our animals were always in good hands, that is one of the reasons that I decided to be a part of the solution.
I know how important it’s for our animais to have company and to stay active, so today I dedicate myself to bringing this joy to them and reassuring their owners if they cannot do the same!
All my pets are adopted, we have 2 cats and a female dog, who lives together in harmony with each other with their own temperament and way of being.
Walking is also my passion, so your dog and I can go for a walk every day, or whenever necessary. From experience your dog can have a maximum of 3 walking companions, more than that I don't advise. But it all depends on how sociable your dog is, I will always respect his/her way of being.
For everyone's safety we prefer to accept only vaccinated pets, but on this matter we can always talk about it.
I have experience in pet-sitting for a long time, it all started when I was a flight attendant in Dubai, where I lived for 7 years. As it was impossible to have an animal with my crazy schedules, together with my flatmate we used to receive animals from a shelter, who were waiting for a home to live.
In the last few years in Portugal I was a volunteer at an association for abandoned animals in our city. At the shelter I had the opportunity to learn a lot of things, . But I realized that the most important of all, was to give them much love and affection (there is no better medicine).
After adopting our dog "Braza", I dedicated myself to learn and I found out that I’m very good at it! You can rest assured if your dog is not very polite, because after a few days with me, he/her will undoubtedly learn some tricks.
I’m also very conscious of the importance of a so you can rest assured that your pet will not eat what it shouldn't, when in my care!
I speak Portuguese, English and Spanish. And can try a few words in different languages as well! ; )
We can talk better to clear all your doubts, feel free to contact me any time.
However, what I can already guarantee is that there will be plenty of love, cuddles and fun! It will be a great joy to share my time with your pet.
Very friendly with my dog, I ma sure that my dog had a very good experince with Mariana.
I have literally nothing negative to say. My cat had a lovely stay with Mariana and her husband. The place was perfect for her! Thank you so much Mariana 😻
