Hello there! Welcome to the best pet-care experience you'll ever have (well, you'll never know but your pet might tell you after pick-up).
My name is Khari and I am a friend to animals large and small. I am 29 year old male freelance visual designer. I work from home and have a flexible schedule. I spend ample time at home and I'm always looking for a reason to go on a walk ;)
I have experience with animals of all temperaments: nervous, stubborn, well-behaved, energetic, lazy, you name it...
My interest and motivation to be a pet sitter comes from a place of love. I do not have an animal of my own, but as a professional pet sitter and enthusiast, I get to spend a good amount of time with different dogs around Berlin.
I have been pet sitting via app for just half a year but I have been responsible for animals for most of my life. I have had 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 bunny, and dozens of fish in my lifetime but have cared for many more animals than that.
Communication with animals is almost always based on tone and touch. It's a fascinating way to communicate and over the years this type of communication has become quite natural for me.
My ideal pet sitting jobs are overnight stays. I welcome your animals into my home for as long as you need. I am also open to daycare, walks, smand home visits.
Your furry friend(s) will not be left unattended for more than 1 hour (only in very rare cases might I leave your animal alone. Anxious dogs will not be left alone under any circumstances. Confident yet lazy dogs may be left alone whilst I go for my daily run.
Dogs will receive 2-3 walks daily (depending on drop-off and pickup times) for at least 30min each walk. Often these walks are much longer as I enjoy long walks and I being outside. I am also familiar with animal body language and behavior and will use this knowledge to determine the best times to go out for a walk.
Your dog's will go everywhere I go. I hardly ever ride the train because I prefer to walk everywhere I go (rain or shine, hot or cold). These walks can easily be 2.5 hours round trip. Your dogs will never be cooped up inside.
For athletic dogs able to run, I will run and/or cycle with the dog (depending on energy expenditure needed). My runs are usually between 5km and 10km but I am happy to go longer if your dog is up for it.
If you are just in need of home visits for feeding/play/potty breaks we can discuss the length of stay.
I live in a 1 bedroom apartment (with separate kitchen and bath) with many plants (the photos you see don't represent the 22 plants that live here with me now. Directly to either side of my building are large grass areas to run and play catch outside and just 10min by foot is Volkspark Friedrichshain.
I ask that animals come with their own bedding, leash, food, poop bags/litter box and any additional supplies you would like them to have most animals sleep on their own bed but on sometimes they are allowed in my bed.
Rest assured that your animals will be fed, hydrated, played with, and well cared for. I am comfortable with dogs of any size and confidence level. Medication administration is possible upon request.
Don't hesitate to ask me if you have questions, specific requests, or wish to negotiate.
I was totally satisfied with Khari and the way he looked after Wolfie. And I am pretty certain that if Wolfie could talk, he would report the same thing. I already have plans to get Khari's help again.
Khari was great with Hooke. He took him to the dog park and ran with him. We were very pleased and Hooke seemed to feel safe and comfortable with him. He was also very flexible with drop off and pick up which was great!
I am kind and patient with animals. I am also a runner. If your pets need exercise I've got a good throwing arm and good stamina.
