Hello, my name is and I’m a passionate animal-lover!
I moved from Portugal with my husband, to Belgium not long ago! And until I can communicate in Dutch, with humans, I will dedicate myself to animals, because I understand that love is a universal language and we will understand each other without barriers.
At the moment I work from 9am to 5pm, which allows me to dedicate my earlymornings and evenings, during the week days, to your pet. And weekends at any time.
I grew up with cats and dogs and I can't imagine a home without our best four-legged companions! As I’m a traveler, I used a lot of pet-sitter services, but it was so difficult to make sure that our animals were always in good hands, that is one of the reasons that I decided to be a part of the solution.
I know how important it’s for our animais to have company and to stay active, so today I dedicate myself to bringing this joy to them and reassuring their owners if they cannot do the same!
All my pets are adopted, we have 2 cats and a female dog, who lives together in harmony with each other with their own temperament and way of being.
Walking is also my passion, so your dog and I can go for a walk every day, or whenever necessary. From experience your dog can have a maximum of 3 walking companions, more than that I don't advise. But it all depends on how sociable your dog is, I will always respect his/her way of being.
For everyone's safety we prefer to accept only vaccinated pets, but on this matter we can always talk about it.
I have experience in pet-sitting for a long time, it all started when I was a flight attendant in Dubai, where I lived for 7 years. As it was impossible to have an animal with my crazy schedules, together with my flatmate we used to receive animals from a shelter, who were waiting for a home to live.
In the last few years in Portugal I was a volunteer at an association for abandoned animals in our city. At the shelter I had the opportunity to learn a lot of things, . But I realized that the most important of all, was to give them much love and affection (there is no better medicine).
After adopting our dog "Braza", I dedicated myself to learn and I found out that I’m very good at it! You can rest assured if your dog is not very polite, because after a few days with me, he/her will undoubtedly learn some tricks.
I’m also very conscious of the importance of a so you can rest assured that your pet will not eat what it shouldn't, when in my care!
I speak Portuguese, English and Spanish. And can try a few words in different languages as well! ; )
We can talk better to clear all your doubts, feel free to contact me any time.
However, what I can already guarantee is that there will be plenty of love, cuddles and fun! It will be a great joy to share my time with your pet.
I recommend it 100%. Mariana and her husband stayed for a week with my dogs, each of them are special in different situations. Elly completely blind soon needs more attention until she recognises the new space, she usually rejects food when she stays with strangers, it didn't happen, which means she felt like a family. Marley is something difficult with strangers but Mariana managed to get around this bad shape of this paw with a special character. For our part, thank you very much for welcoming our dogs ❤️💙😘
Very friendly with my dog, I ma sure that my dog had a very good experince with Mariana.
