Ann Weijer – De Maere

“A few years ago I left my native country Belgium to open a kennel for dogs. Recently we also opened a fancy cattery.

I’m totally qualified and do have several diplomas, including a training at Martin Gaus academy for dogs in Holland also at Karin Weuts, a cat-behaviourist from Belgium.

For me it’s very important that your animal feels at home, even they have to miss their bosses for a while. I’ll do always everything neccessary to make their stay as nice as possible.”

Bob Weijer

Bob Weijer:
“I know Ann since 2008 and over the following contacts, my personal interest in Ann grew up together with a great admiration for her professional institution. I have a great interest in animals such as dogs, horses and sheep. In summer 2008, the next logical step, we decided to continue our journey together, and that in all areas.

I also got my certificate of capacity and also trained with Karin Weuts. This makes us a complete personal and professional team!”

Une confiance absolue

“Quand nous partions quelques jours, nous laissions notre Terre Neuve, Roye, aux bons soins de Ann et maintenant qu’il n’est plus là après 12 années de vie commune c’est au tour de Jules, notre chiot Terre Neuve de 6 mois, d’avoir passé un week-end à l’hôtel sans aucun problème ; nous l’avons retrouvé tel qu’on l’avait laissé, joyeux et plein d’entrain. On réitère bientôt en mars car nous avons une confiance absolue en Ann et Bob qui adorent les animaux. De plus tout est irréprochable, très propre, de grands espaces et les chiens ont même droit à une ou plusieurs promenades ; que du bonheur pour eux et leurs maîtres qui n’ont aucun soucis à ce faire. 
Dès qu’une personne cherche à faire garder leur chien ou chat, nous recommandons le Pouget !
 Encore merci Ann et Bob”

“Un vrai plaisir de voir comment la pension s’est transformée en vrai hotel, Tiana en serait ravie, mais avec tous les cavaliers et les bébés qui vont naitre, je ne peux pas m’en aller, peut-être un de ces jours je pourrais de nouveau profiter de ce merveilleux endroit qu’est le Pouget, en attendant je le conseille à mes voisins! Amitiés,”
