Who is woof-o?

Passion for animals

I am Stefanie Blomberg, the founder of woof-o dog walking service.

I grew up with many kinds of animals such as; horses, cats, rabbits, turtles, birds and of course dogs. At the age of 31 I welcomed Higgins, (or Tilman ut Eyther Land, as stated in his pedigree) a beautiful Gordon Setter into our family. Higgins was a beloved family member for more than 10 years. After my move from Germany to the Netherlands there was unfortunately no time or space for a new dog. In order to stay in contact with these wonderful animals, I worked voluntarily in several animal shelters, this was very rewarding and gave me a lot of joy.

Making my dream come true

In 2017 I decided to retrain and successfully completed my training at the Martin Gaus Academie to become a qualified dog walker. For me this was the first step in making my dream a reality. To be together with my soulmates every day is simply the most beautiful thing in the world for me. Equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge, I am now able to work with dogs in a professional capacity.

Between 2018 and 2020 I worked voluntarilly at the animal shelter in Zaandam. I walked and trained their dogs and helped future owners to handle the dog which they are about to adopt.

Since January 2022 I am a certified dog trainer. And I immediatly continued my studies to become a certified dog behariorist at Annorlunda Academy in Barneveld.


My Mission

For the love of dogs

This sentence is not accidentally mentioned underneath the name of my company.
It’s my mission to create a loving bond between humans and dogs.

Since I was a child I love animals and dogs always had a special place in my heart. Dogs inspire me and deserve something better than just a dogs life.
I would like to contribute to this.

No human being is the same and no dog is the same. Eventhough a dog is no human it is neverless a personality which wants to be seen. An individual with it’s own needs. With this point of view I take care for the dogs I walk. You can do it too.

You will be surprised what you can accomplish with your loyal friend. Step by step your will learn how to creat the behaviour you would like to see in your dog. I will advise and support you with training your dog in a loving and positive way.

Full of passion I work and walk the dogs under my care. I invest in my own knowledge and skills, visit lectures and follow courses so my work is based upon the latest findings and knowledge of behavioral research.

As dogs humans are never finished learing.

Martina Gasparri

Since December 1st 2022 Martina is taking over the 3rd walk on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Here is her introduction:

I was born in Italy, in 1997, and since I’ve memory I always loved dogs, even more than humans. When I was child my parents house was too small for have pets, and was also in the city so not that easy to have a lot of animals in the house, so I had few hamsters, two cats, and then finally in 2015 Keny ( my sweetie black shadow ) came to my life, just as a present from a friend that had 5 puppies to give away.
After 7 years with her, I’ve learned a lot of things. I’ve learned what’s the real, unconditional, endless love. She teaches me to be happy even with small things, like a walk in the park, and in the years I understood more and more that I wanted to spend all my time with dogs.
When I was 10 I used to volunteering in few shelters in Italy, for learn how to take care of dogs, and in the years after I was taking care of my friends dogs, until Keny came came my life.
In 2018 I’ve moved to the Netherlands and started with different jobs, but I could never find something that it really suits for me. After one year also Keny was following me here, and my passion for dogs grew more and more, so I’ve decided it to make a profession, and to start to make my studies (when it will be possible) about it. So I’ve open my first profile for dogsitting and so far was going very well, then I’ve worked for Shuki’s dog service for a month and now I’m very happy to start to work with woof-o and other dogs so I can grow much more my skills with dogs and make this dream become true!
