About Sofia

*I accept bookings after the first Meet & Great which is charged as one visit if it is at your house or outdoors.

To arrange this we need to add one visit to the request. The same applies for any extra visits for key pickup/drop-off. 🔑 *

Hello there, I'm Sofia! 🐾

I'm 28 years old and originally from Greece, but I now call Berlin my home. Since January 2023, I've been caring for pets in Berlin, and I have to say, it's been an amazing experience! 😊

I speak English and Greek, and I'm currently learning German. Growing up, I've always had animals as part of my family, so I understand what it takes to make your pets feel safe and happy. Whether you have cats, dogs, gerbils, turtles, bunnies, or even wild birds, I've had the pleasure of looking after them all. ❤️

Before coming to Germany, I used to foster stray animals and take care of pets for friends and family in Kavala and Kreta. I also spent two years working as a vet assistant in a clinic and volunteered at rescue shelters.

On most days, you'll find me caring for adorable dogs and cats in my own space. I also provide drop-in visits to pet owners' homes and overnight stays. 

To ensure I can accommodate your needs ideally, it's always a smart move to plan ahead, particularly during busy times like holidays. Finding a last-minute sitter can be a challenge for everyone involved. So, please feel free to reach out, and we can arrange some quality time for your beloved furry friends!

🏠 Services I Offer:

● Pet Boarding & Day Care take place at my house
● Drop-in Visits, Dog Walks & Housesitting take place at the owner's house

Please feel free to ask about any services not listed. 

Drop-in visits include feeding, refilling water bowls, cleaning cat litter, giving your pets medicine if required, brushing, playtime & cuddles and of course sending you cute photos and videos. I stay however long all this takes, depending on your pet's needs, and you can request via the booking system extra time with them.

Pet boarding at my house and day care:
I live in a 2 room apartment near Mierendorffplatz with my boyfriend. We live on the 4th floor, and our building has an elevator. We don't have any other pets or kids. There is also a big terrace that dogs can enjoy, but when hosting cats I prefer to keep all windows and the terrace door closed just in case.

Besides that, pets are allowed on the sofa and bed (or on us).

During pet boarding and day care I make sure to feed your pets the requested times. For doggies I go for frequent potty breaks near the 2 neighborhood parks and then we can take big walks in the Schlossgarten! 

Some information I would like to know in advance:
• kind of pet (dog/cat)
• age and size
• any special needs the pet has or medical issues
• medication that may be required
• any type of aggressive or reactive behavior (unfortunately I cannot host dogs that bark excessively in the house or during walks or are likely to bite- humans or other pets)

Also, prior to the booking, I always set up a Meet & Greet session with pet owners.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions at all! Cheers!

Thank you Sofia again for taking care of Felix and the flat! Communication was friendly, we got updates during our vacation and we came home to a happy cat. We and Felix have zero complaints.

Unsere Hündin Viene hat sich bei Sofia wieder super wohl gefühlt. Sie kam sehr zufrieden und entspannt zurück. Sofia war wieder 100% zuverlässig. Alles hat ganz super geklappt.

Vielen herzlichen Dank ich werde sie sicher wieder buchen.
