Hello, my name is Maria and I currently study at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. My homeland is Slovakia, where are used to have all my pets - dog Jack, cat Dexter and small kitty Bubo, horse Napoli and turtle Orši. As you can see, I have variety of animals. Although, each one of them is different I love them the most. As I decided to study abroad, I left my family and my pets which makes me really homesick. As I am now living on my own, have to study and care about "adult stuff" like cooking and shopping I have realized that I wouldnt have enough time for a new dog. This motivated me to become a dog sitter.
I really like this concept, as by taking care of animals I can help the dog owner and on the other hand I can still keep in touch with animals and have some nice time. I am an active person and therefore I would love to go out with the pets, either close to my house in Scheveningen where are nice parks nearby or somewhere around dog´s house. I would be also able to take care of pets for a longer period than just a walk by visiting pet´s house and feeding it, at the time pet parents are not at home.
I am just an animal lover and all experience I have is thanks to my pets. I have experience with contact with other animals, that I dont know as I used to go to an animal shelter to walk the dogs.
