My name is Lisa and I am originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I studied Environmental Studies and Water Management at McGill University. I moved to the Netherlands in 2016 and moved to Germany last November. I am an extremely friendly and outgoing person, and I absolutely love all animals! In my pictures you’ll see my two dogs back home in Canada - Buddy and Tikki -and my friends dogs we took to the beach. You will also see the greenery near our apartment in Bonn Beuel! I speak English and French and I am learning German.
My animal experience I always grew up with pets in my life. Ever since I was a baby, I was surrounded by Great Danes, Pitbulls, and Huskies. We mostly adopted our dogs from shelters to give them a better life. I also had a pet budgie and my sister and I also had hamsters. When I moved into my own apartment, my roommate and I adopted 2 cats. So, I have quite an extensive history with all kinds of animals! I especially love dogs and cats, even the most difficult or timid ones. I know how to handle tough dogs on leashes (as mine are back home!) and I also dont mind getting dirty with dogs out on walks. I have also volunteered at numerous animal shelters, including the SPCA in Montreal, and the Ark Dog Shelter in Barbados. I have also babysat my friend's dogs here in the Netherlands, as I have not yet had the opportunity to care for my own pet. This is why I wish to offer my time to take care of your pets, since I do not get to see my own very often back home!
Availability and Services
I work from home so I am am available all the time! I would be happy to check up on your pet at your house, or to walk your dog depending on your schedule. I would be delighted to take your dog for a walk around these beautiful green areas, to meet and greet with other dogs (if they like that!). I would be happy to also visit your house to babysit your dog or visit daily. When walking dogs, I discuss first with the owner on the dog's abilities and preferences. Walks can range from what is possible for your pup, from 20 mins to 1 hour each walk. I can offer 1-2 walks a day.
For Cats I can also visit your house to take care of your cats, to feed and clean out the litter. If your cat also enjoys the outdoors, I am happy to keep an eye on them when the want to wander and return to your home. For Other pets I am also happy to take care of and visit your home if you have a bird, reptile, hamster, bunny or other that needs to be checked up on!
For all pets, depending on the services required, I am readily available upon your schedule and needs. If the pet is staying with me, I am currently working from home and my partner is a student, so we can give a lot of attention to your pet throughout the day.
My home is currently an apartment in Bonn, and we live next to a lovely green space 2 mins walks from the Rhine river! We have a small balcony and have an open green space or courtyard in front of our apartment, but not fenced in. We live on the 2nd floor.
Looking forward to meeting your pet!
Lisa is fantastic! She took care of our little dog for a week and everything was perfect! Thank you Lisa and we count on your for the next one :)
First dog-sitting experience for us and our little Zazu. Everything worked out great :) Communication was easy, we met the day before, so we could get to know each other a bit better. Lisa sent us updates/pics during his stay and all in all we were very happy to have chosen Lisa to take care of Zazu. We will definitely stay in touch.
