About Palupi

Taking care of animals is my passion of life. I grew up around animals and pets like dogs, cats, fish, birds, in our family. I moved to Calgary in 2015 from Loosdrecht, The Netherlands, where I lived for 8 years and was being pet sitter and volunteer in animal shelters. I would like to continue this best rewarding activities also in Canada. I have a Maltese dog, he is friendly and loves other dog's company. Dogs in my house are almost never left alone (max 2 hr alone if really unavoidable)

I work at home most of the time as freelance architect. Whenever I go out, I always take the dog(s) with me. I can give every pets in my house all of attention and care they need. I live in a condo with only a walking distance to many parks, river and off leash areas. I walk daily 3 times for about an hour each and play with them indoor when the weather is not so friendly outside. They will have enough exercise for their body and their emotional need. Apart from my daily walk, I often go hiking in Kananaskis & Banff, where my dog(s) also can experience some variety of scenery, smell, etc in new places.

At home, the pets are free around the house, they can choose their own comfortable place. My place is a dog proof house, I keep it tidy and clean so they won't mistakenly eat/touch any hazardous stuff.

I can apply the rule, habit and conditions that the owners prefer for their pets. My dog likes to sleep on bed in my bedroom, watch TV on the sofa, etc. If your pets is allowed and like it too they can join in without any problem. For now I cannot accept big dogs because of the building's pet policy. My dog doesn't get along with cats, so I can only offer to visit the cats or I stay in the owner's house instead of boarding in my place. And most of the time I only accept one guest pet, to make sure she/he can get sufficient care and attention they need without sharing with others. But these is not a strict conditions, all depends on how they get allong with others and on their characters.

Palupi was wonderful - we had plans fall through at the last minute and she was able to watch our puppy for the day. She kept us up to date with photos and Henry had a great time exploring a new neighbourhood on his walks. She was also very flexible with our timing for drop off/pick up. Thanks Palupi!

Familiar with dog training techniques
Can take care of exotic animals

I have experience of taking care dogs, fish, birds, horses. I took care 16 horses in a riding school and still actively riding horses. I had dobermans dog when I was a child, and regularly got big dogs to take care of without any problem.

I groom my own dog daily (because he needs to be brushed to prevent his hair gets tangled), so I can groom your dogs too if it s required. I can wash and also trim dogs hair but not to standard of a dog salon because I just learn to do it autodidactly. So far people appreciate the result on my dog positively.

Because I adopted my dog from an animal shelter in The Netherlands, I learn how to train dogs with difficult behaviors too, I am though not a professional trainer, but I can help a little bit there.
