I'm a 31 yr old former international recruiter who fell in love with Munich and moved here recently. While I enjoy a short break in-between jobs and catch-up with my hobbies and learning German, I'd like to make myself useful to pet owners around the Milbertshofen area, where I live. Luckily it's an area with several pet-friendly parks, perfect for a 30 minute dog walk.
Animals in general have been my passion since I was a kid and an avid Animal Planet viewer - I was always glued to the TV when Steve Irwin or the RSPCA animal rescue show was on. When it comes to pets, as a child, I had several types of exotic fish, a pair of lovebirds and I fostered a puppy for a few months. In the last 10 years, I focused on my studies abroad (Sweden and Denmark) and have been working in a couple of multinational companies in the past 7 years up until October when I moved to Munich. At the moment I am not employed, so I am flexible with my time.
I'm keen on having a good and trustworthy connection with the owner, so that they can rest assured that they are leaving their fluffy-loved one in good hands. Even though I have not owned a dog in recent years, due to long hours at the office, I sometimes took care of my friends' Ruby, a beautiful and energetic Vizsla, when they were out of town.
The best reward at the end of the sitting was a tired-happy brown-eyed doggy ready to fall asleep after a long walk.
Since every cat or dog has their own personality, I understand that it's important for the owner that the sitter understands the pet's needs.
I hope this short description catches your eye. If you have any questions about myself please feel free to connect with me.
Octavia hat meine beiden Katzen in meiner Abwesenheit betreut.
Sie ist vertrauenswürdig, zuverlässig, hat Erfahrung mit Tieren und ist besonders lieb zu ihnen! Sie respektiert, dass jedes Tier einen eigenen Charakter hat, ist geduldig und geht auf jedes individuell ein. Sie hat sich bestens um meine beiden gekümmert und auch Medikamente verabreicht. Man merkt, wie sehr sie den Umgang mit Tieren mag. Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass sie auch für Hundebetreuung sehr gut geeignet ist!
Die Kommunikation erfolgt (noch) auf englisch, ist immer schnell und höflich. (Bei Verständigungsschwierigkeiten könnte ihr Freund helfen, der deutsch spricht und genau wie sie sehr nett ist.)
Man kann Octavia sein Tier anvertrauen und muss sich wirklich um nichts Sorgen machen.
Octavia took care of my two cats. She is reliable, knows how to deal with cats (I am sure she is a very good dog sitter as well!) and treats every animal individually with kindness and patience. She is someone you can leave your pet with without worrying at all!
Octavia took great care of our cat Gosha. She is very friendly and responsive. We came home to a content and well-fed cat. We will definitely book her again! 10/10
