Ever since I was a little girl, I have been happiest around animals.
Around horses, cats, monkeys, etc., but especially around DOGS!
Little dogs, medium sized dogs, large dogs.
Young dogs, middle-aged dogs, older dogs.
I grew up with dogs, and have owned my own dogs in my native Hungary for 20+ years.
As a Green Card Resident, I miss my dogs.
I miss playing with them, training them, and walking with them.
I think you - and your treasure - will find me to be tender, loving, caring and playful.
I have an aura that dogs seem to be very comfortable with.
As an additional bonus - although we both hope there will be no need for it - my background includes medical training.
How lucky am I that I can earn additional income doing what I love to do most.
Timi has been a godsend for me and our dog, Abbey. We are in love with Cairn Terriers (think Toto). We've had 5 over 30 years. They are among the most people oriented dogs. Very sensitive to love and affection. But, Abbey is closer to being human than any other dog we've had. She's 14 years old; never heard a harsh word in her life, loves cuddling and watching television. Very set in her ways. We have to travel for business, generally every other month, and often on fairly short notice. Until we found Timea there was always some anxiety leaving her at the kennel. They treated her well but we always had concerns about breaking up her routines and, since she is an older dog, about disease. Timea is always ready to take her when we call. When we drop her off and she sees Timi, she is as happy to go with her as with us. While we're away she sends us photos and notes telling us what they did during the day. Timea genuinely loves dogs and understands their need for affection, attention and routine. And, knowing Abbey is in good hands relieves us of anxiety while we're away.
I first hired Timea on the recommendation of a friend who had used her and was extremely satisfied. When she entered my apartment, I could sense that she had an aura about her that my Mookie immediately took to. So even though she was new to me, I felt comfortable leaving my Mookie with her. When I came home a few hours later, everything seemed fine, but of course you never really know. When she came back the 2nd time, I knew. How? Mookie must have recognized her scent the moment she got off the elevator, because he raced through the apartment to the front door, and alternated between lifting his front paws onto the door and turning himself around in circles. When about 10 seconds later, the doorbell rang and I opened the door,, he immediately started rubbing up against her legs as she petted him and talked to him, part in English, and part in her native European language. They had clearly bonded. I have used her many times, am very pleased with her, and highly recommend her.
I try to make it as simple as possible, by answering a phone call, or responding to an email, voicemail, or text very soon after it's received.
Next, if possible, at our mutual convenience, I try to set up a Meet & Greet.
If I'm being hired to board, I like to bring the dog - with its owner - up to my apartment, so the dog will not feel its in a new place when it actually comes to stay.
I've owned my own dogs for 20+ years, I've studied at a veterinary school in my native country, I've been a nurse - so I know how to administer medicine if necessary - and I've walked and boarded dogs for several years.
