About Alexandra

Hi everyone!

I am Alexandra, 35 years old and I have been living in Dusseldorf since June 2019. I moved here with my family- my hustband (who had a job relocation here), my 5 yo daughter and my dog, Carolina. Unfortunately, my dog passed away recently, so right now I have no animals of my own. I lived with animals my whole life (dogs and cats) and I was a volunteer in animal charities for the past 15 years and a co-founder of Red Panda Romania, a local animal welfare organisation located in Bucharest. I had the opportunity to get involved in many animal related tasks, including managing the adoptions, running the adoption center together with my colleagues, fundraising, educational projects, being a foster care and so on. During my volunteering work I had the chance to interract with all types of dogs and cats, including animals with health or behavior issues. I joined different animal welfare conferences and training (International Dogs Trust Training Programme in 2011 London, UK; Dogs Trust ICAWC Conference in 2015, Istanbul, Turkey; Introduction in Telling TTouch Classes). I have the Certificate of competence for handling large sized dogs since June 2019 Dusseldorf (Sachkundenachweis)

I am a responsible person, great with animals and will gladly pet sit your furry family. I am available for home visits, dog walking (1-2 walks per day, 30 minutes) and pet sitting in my home. Will take care of your pet as it is one of my own.

Home visits include feeding, fresh water, cuddle, love and play, cleaning the litter box, watering the plants and making sure everything is in order. If needed, I can give medical treatment as well. A final clean up also available for longer vacations, so that when you come home your cats are happy and healthy and your home is clean and welcoming. One home visit is around 30 minutes and of course, informations and pictures will be provided daily. For 2 home visits per day, my availability is between 9.30 and 11.30 in the morning and between 18.30 and 20.00 in the evening. But, depending on the request, I am flexible for other schedules.

I can also provide animal boarding in my home, as long as the animal is child friendly. I have a 3 rooms rented apartment, situated near Grafental, with a nice private backyard, fully fenced and a gate that always stays locked with the key. The apartament is large and there is enough space for any kind of dogs, including large sized. Home boarding includes all the care that the dog being is used to and I will respect the owners indication regarding feeding, walking, playing, slepping and so on. Your dog will enjoy 3 walks per day, I have 2 green areas near my home and also Ostpark where we can go for longer walks. I am home most of the day (except 20 mintes while taking and picking up my child from the kindergarden), so your dog will be looked after the whole day. Of course, pets should be used to the their needs outside (dogs)/ in the litter box (cats).

I speak fluent English and basic German (still learning). At the moment, I am staying at home, so my schedule is very flexible.

Looking forward to meet you,

Alexandra

Alexandra ist eine sehr freundliche, gewissenhafte, verantwortungsbewusste junge Frau, die sich sehr viele Gedanken um Kringel gemacht hat. Ich konnte sie gut über ihr Handy erreichen. Sie hat sich zuverlässig an alle Absprachen gehalten. Generell habe wir uns auf Englisch unterhalten, das war unproblematisch. Es gab zu Hause viel Platz und auch eine Terrasse und einen Garten zum Spielen. Unser noch junger und temperamentvoller Hund war jedoch in der Familie mit kleinem Kind anstrengend. Darüber haben wir auch gesprochen, sodass Kringel im nachhinein besser in einem Haushalt ohne Kinder untergebracht gewesen wäre. Alexandra hat durch ihren eigenen Hund viel Erfahrung im Umgang mit Hunden. Ich kann sie wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

I got to know Alexandra by taking care of my large senior dog, Neg, in January. From the very first conversation Alexandra has showed great experience by asking very specific questions on Neg's need. Neg was with her for only two nights but Alexandra went far in order to comfort my pet and she kept me updated about their adventures every day. Overall, I find Alexandra very conscious and caring and I would recommend her to dogs from any bread!
