About Ignacio

Hi pet lovers!

I'm Ignacio, aged 26, from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I grew up surrounded by dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, fish and even a turtle.

As an animal lover, it's sad that for the last couple of years i've been living in places that didn't allowpets. This is when I realized how lucky I was for growing up in the environment I did and how much I needed to fill the connection I’ve always felt with animals. So I figured I would help up someone else with their pets.

Back in Buenos Aires I used to study Sociology and during my first two years of college I started as a dog walker in my old neighborhood, while I was also taking care of my friends and family's dogs and cats whenever they were away.

What I didn’t realize at that time is that my petsitting career was developing faster and bigger than my actual college career.

As time went by I also studied for two years to be an English teacher. But my real thing has always been music and animals. So I made the decision to follow this path.

Besides art, contributing to the wellbeing of any animal is what really makes me feel like I’m giving back to the world everything I’m grateful for.

I'm new in Berlin and as a musician, I have lots of free time on my hands since I work from my studio at home.

About my services:

- Day and night care.

If they can’t be alone, I’ll be there to spend time with them. I know that trust may not be easy when staying with a stranger for the first time but no worries. I will make sure they have the best of days and not miss you that bad.When your pet is in my care, expect photo updates of them having fun to brighten up your day, on lead training and a sleepy cuddly pup at the by of the day. You can also ask me to stay one or several nights if needed.

- One or two home visits a day.

This is usualy for cat owners. Depending specially on their needs, we can agree on the right schedule. I have experience giving them medication oral and injected. I will make sure they feel comfortable, entertained and joyful in spite of you being away.

- Dog walking.

I can take your dog out for a 30 minute or 1 hour walk depending on what their needs are. And this can be scheduled as many times a day you need to. You can decide the walking route if you’d like to.

I can pet sit other animals too but not at my own accommodation, as I said before. I will go to your place and make sure everything is taken care of. It doesn’t matter the size or age of your pet, I have enough experience with all kind of them.You don’t even have to worry if you have more than one animal, you can easylly leave them on my hands.

I'm currently based in Tempelhof but am happy to travel around the city.

Feel free to ask me anything else you’d like to know about me or my services.

Do not hesitate on contacting me at any time. Available late notice too!

Looking forward to meet your little furry friend.

Ignacio struck us as dependable person from the first time we met him, he was thoughtful and his experience of actively spending time with animals is clear. While we were away he took good care of our 2 cats and always acted on the agreed arrangements, we can feel safe to propose Ignacio to any other person in need of a caretaker.

Ignacio ist ein verlässlicher Hundesitter, den wir gerne wieder buchen.

Ignacio hat auf unseren Hund Lupo, ein großer Schäferhund-Hovawart-Mischling, aufgepasst. Lupo ist 11 Jahre alt aber immer noch sehr aktiv, sehr lieb aber nicht ganz einfach zu führen. Er reagiert aggressiv auf andere Hunde, also machte ich mir anfangs Sorgen, dass der Sitter überfordert sein würde.

Es hat aber alles wunderbar geklappt! Während ich meinen Urlaub genoss, kümmerten Ignacio und meine Schwester sich um Lupo.

Er schickte mir ein paar Fotos und eine Nachricht nach dem ersten Tag, um die ich ihn gebeten hatte.

Lupo und Ignacio haben schnell eine gute Bindung aufgebaut. Sie verbrachten mehrere Stunden bei uns Zuhause (Lupo kann nicht alleine Zuhause sein) oder spazierten durch den nahen Park, auch mal länger (1 Stunde).

Danke für deine Hilfe!

Ignacio is very reliable and we'd love to book him again in the future.

Ignacio was sitting our dog Lupo, who is a German pastor- Hovawart mix. Lupo is 11 years old but still very active, he's sweet but not easy to lead.

He reacts aggressive towards other dogs, so I was a little worried at the beginning, thinking the sitter might get overwhelmed.

But everything turned out fine! While I was on vacations, Ignacio and my sister took very good care of Lupo.

He sent me pictures and a message after the first day, that I had asked him to send me.

Lupo and Ignacio connected very quickly. They spent hours at our home (because Lupo can't stay alone) or went out for a walk (one time even for an hour).

Thank you for your help!
