About Ingrid

I am a passionate entrepreneur, an outdoor enthusiast, upbeat woman who lives mindfully and adores animals. I have been looking after animals for more than 10 years, simultaneously in France (where I am originally from), Canada, USA, Costa Rica and Australia.

I enjoy travelling so having a dog of my own is not feasible at this time. Looking after your animals is the perfect opportunity for me to have a canine companion while making your life easy !

I have always been living with animals and I grew up with a dog and a cat. Animals are an essential part of my life, they uplift my spirit in incredible ways. I love receiving and providing them with the attention and unconditional love that they deserve.

I love the feeling of coming home and going to a long leisurely stroll with a pup. This helps me to unwind from the day and brings happiness in my life.

I enjoy a healthy, active, vegetarian lifestyle and I find that having a dog to accompany me on walks, at the beach and on trails adds a great amount of joy in my life.

A few years ago, when I was living in Paris, I volunteered for an animals rescue association, the ''Fondation Assistance Aux Animaux'', a registered society run by volunteers which primary focus is to rescue and rehome small animals in need, animals who have been neglected, injured and abandoned. I was providing special care to dogs who were the most in needs, some of them were very ill and I was in charge of giving them specific medication. Most importantly, I was providing them with as much love and attention as possible. This experience provided me a great sense of fulfillment and a sense of purpose, and a stronger connection with animals.

Some of my previous assignments were filled with a lot of responsibilities. For example, last year I took care of a furry family of 8 (4 dogs and 4 cats), all rescued animals. My days were bustling with activities as each animal required specific attention - most of them needed special medication and 2 cats were very old and couldn't walk properly. It remains a formidable experience.

I am know for being kind, patient, trustworthy, resourceful and caring person. I will provide your dog(s) with the attention and love equally as if they were mine.

I offer dog walking, housesitting, home visits, doggy daycare and housesitting services. I am available for short and long period assignments.

If you need additional reference or if you have any question or concern please do not hesitate.

I look forward to meeting you and your fur family !

House Sitting
Vanessa, 2018-12-27

Ingrid is an amazing pet sitter. The moment my two dogs met her, they took to her immediately. Usually it takes them a lot longer to warm up to someone new.

While I was away, she took them for lots of walks and even taught them to walk properly on the lead, which is no small feat.

She also took lovely care of my cat and rabbit and kept me informed of how they were all going while I was away.

Ingrid also left my house spotless after her stay.

I will definitely be asking Ingrid to come and look after my pets again.
