About Ruth

Hi there! I'm Ruth, I'm 31 and living in Berlin for the past 4 years after travelling a little around south east Asia 🗺️

My beautiful dog Rosie passed away just over a year ago and I miss her hugely. She had a lot of complicated illnesses (eg. epilepsy) so I am very used to paying close attention to pets' behaviours and conditions, plus admistering all kinds of medications. I also nursed her for weeks when she broke her collarbone. She was our family's sweetheart and was enjoying some windy retirement out in the very west of Ireland.

I recently lost my job in tech and would love to use this spare time in a positive way. I live on my own in a 60sqm groundfloor duplex. The previous owners kept a cat here that absolutely loved exploring the space. It's permitted to keep small pets here, including dogs, so I have some freedom with pet sitting :)

I have pretty flexible availability due to this newfound free time and wouldn't be leaving a pet alone for any period of time. Super happy to create my schedule around pet-sitting for the foreseeable eg. can supervise a guest pet 24/7 if needed and if it doesn't clash with time away (end of June). I also WFH when I am employed, and have great flexibility in my lifestyle to mind pets in general.

More recently, I'm always minding or playing with friends' pets here in Berlin - hopefully being able to have my own in a few years 🤗 I am a calm, responsible, communicative and loving person who has a lot of experience looking after dogs and cats. Hopefully I am the right person to help you with yours!

Services I offer include dog/cat sitting, dog walking, dog/cat boarding. Can walk the dog as long as it needs to be walked, max 2-3 times per days. Maximum pets I will be responsible for at any one time is 2. Time spent during home visits is also super flexible, and I'm happy to collect mail, water plants, check security, etc.

Wir haben Willibald zum ersten Mal abgegeben und wussten noch nicht wie er sich machen wird. Dank Ruth hat er und auch wir, uns mit der neuen Situation sehr wohl gefühlt :)

Ruth looked after our Baloo. We got photos and updates on how he was doing.

When we came back, Baloo didn't want to go home. He immediately felt at home with Ruth.

Thank you very much
