Hi! My name is Annaleah, I am a dog lover who works from home part-time and I have no dog of my own (yet) in Belgium. I live in Nethen, Grez-Doiceau (about 20-25 minutes from Leuven) with my Belgian partner Simon and we both absolutely love animals, especially dogs. We recently moved here from Leuven to have a larger
house, closer to nature and perfect for dogs :) the house has a very large and has a huge fully fenced garden, perfect for doggy playtime! I primarily do home-boarding for dogs and welcome any requests!
About me: I am originally from the U.S. where I grew up with dogs, so I have experience raising and training two dogs happily. I miss my dog Riley everyday, she is a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier who remains in the U.S. with my parents. Without a dog here of my own, I love to help care for any dogs around in need of walking and companionship while their owners are away. I came to Leuven for my Master's degree and decided to stay, so I have been here for almost 4 years now and am familiar with the area (I understand/speak basic Dutch - and am now beginning to learn basic French!)
What I Offer: Dog walking, doggy daycare, home dog boarding and house/pet sitting, cat sitting
I love to go for walks and runs, play games outside and be active, especially when the weather is nice and with a dog by my side. My new place in Nethen is a three minute walk to an entrance the Meerdal forest - with great trails for hiking and dog walking. With a large fenced garden and a house surrounded by forest and farmland, it is perfect place for dogs who love to spend time outside or are used to a garden at thier home. With me, you can be sure your dog will get plenty of exercise, play-time, rest and cuddles to suit their needs and personality. The photos in my profile show views of the garden, and farms and forest around the house.
I am reliable, have a very flexible schedule during the weekdays, and can always be contacted. During normal working hours I am free to walk dogs, visit them at your home for walks/feeding or act as a day-time and overnight dog sitter. I have experience cat sitting and taking care of my grandparent's cats as well, and can provide this too. And I am also more than comfortable with playful puppies and dogs of all different personalities and sizes. I am familiar with puppy/dog training techniques and can provide lots of exercise and play-time too. I have experience with very shy, easily scared dogs as well as with super active jumpers/runners and playful bitters - all dogs are unique and all are welcome!
I am available for longer overnight sitting during these holidays, for those who want to go on vacation or need to leave home short notice: contact me and I would love to have a meet and greet with your dog(s) and then care from them either at your own home or mine. If you entrust me with your dog's care - I will happily send you regular updates with photos during the duration of your dog's stay.
Contact me anytime - I am very flexible and will get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to getting to know the dogs in the neighboorhood and I am always free for a meet and greets first!
As they say "a tired dog is a happy dog'....and our boy came back exhausted :-)
I would highly recommend using Annaleah and Simon. The (huge) outside space is a perfect playground for any dogs!
Would definitely book again soon :-)
Heel tevreden van Annaleah! Onze hond heeft genoten van alle aandacht! Annaleah heeft hem echt verwend door veel te spelen, binnen en buiten en door grote wandelingen te maken in het bos vlakbij haar huis. We kregen regelmatig foto's van een gelukkige hond. Wij hebben onze oppas gevonden en Casper gaat zeker nog eens terug!
