About Al

Hello everyone, I am Al. Your friendly neighbourhood pet sitter and trainer living in Prenzlauerberg for over 2 years now. I can speak English, and a bit off German too :) I started pet caring as doing favours to my friends long time ago and fell in love with it. I love all animals of all kinds. Over the years I dedicated myself in learning how to take care of pets and how to train them. I am a high energy, easy going, and a very patient pet carer, sitter, and trainer. I can describe myself as an animal activist and had been volunteered in many dog shelters in 3rd world countries. I have a wide range of experience in taking care of pets. I know the city of Berlin in detail and love parks and walking dogs in this beautiful city.

I care for all pets like my own and If I see that I for some reason will not be able to give the best service for you and your pet I will not accept the booking. I am always open and honest and I like giving regular updates too :)

WALKS

I accept all sized dogs including huge dogs for dog walking. Being a big guy myself I can handle all sized dogs. I can go for long walks two times a day or more. Unlike others, I prefer to have close to 1 hour walks plus if agreed the commotion of taking your pet and bringing it back to you or your house. I believe over 30 minutes is sometimes not enough for exercise and we would want your pet to have the best exercise and play time.

I really like walking dogs in the park. One of my favourite park is a not so crowded park behind planetarium close to my home and also Volkspark Friedrichshains. I have flexible hours in taking care of all your needs.

HOUSE SITTING

I can do house sitting for all sized dogs and had been doing for many of my clients. I will make sure your pet have everything they need and also keep the house tidy and clean.

If you are interested, please contact me we can meet and have a cup of coffee. If you prefer, I can share references too :)

HOME BOARDING and DOGY DAY CARE

I can only accept small dogs for home boarding and depending on the situation I can spend the whole day, overnight or a few hours with your pet. I am a freelancer who is working from home. I am also living by myself with no housemates or pets. Small Pets can stay overnight.Please contact me if you would like me to take care of your pet for a day or an hour or overnight. I kindly ask you not to please double book and waste my time. If you are looking for someone best for your pet, feel free to contact me for any questions.

Looking forward to meeting you and taking care of your pets :)

STORIES BEHIND THE PHOTOS

PIC 1 The beautiful Akita called Samu that I have babysitted for a month. He was very friendly and energetic. With enough exercise he was easy to handle. Still miss him sometimes :)

PIC 2 Little Snow which I have babysitted over the weekend. I met the owner in S bahn and she needed somebody to take of Snow for the weekend. Snow was really calm and friendly. Very easy to babysit.

PIC 3 The enchanting Husky that I have met in Pankow called Lara. She was one of the most energetic dog that I have met, over the week I have babysit her she made lose 2 kilos :) PIC 4 Took Rex to a barbecue for the day. Rex was a friends dog that I had for a day. He was a sweetheart. PIC 5 I have house sitted a clients house and took care of this nice and calm Canadian Shepard mix called Ice.

PIC 6 Mimi, one of my regulars, >34kg Bearded collie and Labrador mix. Needed a lot of exercise and some direction and obedience training around food. Although she is older than 3 she improved considerably in a short time after strict training.

PIC 7 Yoda the Yorkshire terrier who stayed with me for 5 days. We had a great time together, he was calm and very well mannered. He listened all my instructions.

PIC 8 Ceaser the lab&golden retriver mix. I am walking Cesear regularly; he needs to exercise more but he is a very smart boy :)

PIC 9 Hudson is one of the sweetest little things ever and also listens directions very well. He stayed with me for 14 days and it was a smooth experience.

Lets meet and grab a coffee so we can discuss how I can help you 🤗

Warm regards,

Al is a very professional and kind person to meet and I felt comfortable leaving my dog, Fred with him. Al is very knowledgeable about dogs and gives very good advice in caring and training them.

Al took care of our 2 years old Welshie - Harry and my husband and I were more than happy with him. He took such a good and gentle care of him, Harry developed an anxiety due to our recent move to Berlin and Al made sure to make him feel comfortable, loved and at home. Truly grateful!
