Are you looking for a caring and trustworthy person to give your dog the attention it needs? Are you too busy to walk or exercize your dog daily? I would love to be your animal caretaker!
I grew up in California and I have been living in Berlin for the past four years. I speak German, English, Spanish and Porgtuguese and am studying to be a Heilpraktikerin. I am unable to have a pet of my own at the moment, but would love to be able to spend time with your beloved pets!
I have lifelong experience with dog care and training. I have lived with two australian shepherd/ cattle dog mixes and have experience training a variety dogs at the Animal Shelters in California. I will use this knowledge to help make your dog feel happy and comfortable while also providing structure and training. I have taken care of many of my friends dogs and pets this past year and would like to offer my services outside of my circle. I can also offer care of cats and other pets as needed.
I love to go on runs with dogs through Planterwald or Tempelhofer Feld. I also am able to do short or long walks around the neighborhood or to a dog park. The walks can be anywhere from 2 hours to 30 minutes. I will make sure the dog is able to relieve itself, stay under control and enjoy him/herself! We can work together to find the perfect exercise schedule for your dog!
I have experience training dogs since childhood, when I trained dogs with 4-H and the local animal shelter. I use techinques of positive reinforcement to set your dog up for success. I am very comfortable training skills such as "sit, stay, down, leave it, drop it and heel". I can adapt my training to the language of your choice and techinque of your choice. I am also trained to use "clickers" or key word training to be sure the dog knows exactly what we want it to do. I love to integrate training into walks and play sessions so that the dog becomes comfortable with the commands in different contexts. f you have more questions about training, please feel free to ask!
Day and weekend dog care:
I can care for your dog at your home or have the dog stay with me at my home. I live in a dog-safe two room apartment with a balcony. I live with my partner who is also a pet lover. I have not pets at home. I am sure to move all plants out of the pet's reach and will plan to be around the house while the pet is there, not leaving them for more than 1 hour.
I spend a minimum of 4 quality hours a day with the pet one on one. Dogs often love to lay in the sun on the balcony or on my special dog bed on the floor! I will only board one pet at a time unless they come from the same household. I am currently studying and sometimes have small jobs part time. My availability is usually open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
I live in Neukolln and would be willing to work with dogs in: Tempelhof, Schoneberg, Kreuzberg and Neukolln areas.
Please contact me with any questions or requests! I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends!
Maya took excellent care of my 6-months old high energy puppy. We had a first meet&greet at her place; and on the day we also spent time going over the puppy's habits and what to watch out for etc. She was super communicative throughout the day, sharing regular updates; and showed a lot of patience towards my puppy.
Highly recommend Maya.
Maya is 11/10! She is such a kind loving soul, my cat felt so good with her since the moment they met. Maya took amazing care of my cat and home, and I would trust her to do that again anytime!
