As always, Johan was outstanding! He kept us updated, and my next door neighbor even commented on how she saw him looking after our pets, house and garden so well. He is an asset to your company. Awesome service once again!

The peace of mind I got from knowing that Ricardo was looking after my fur babies was just great and hope that when I use your services in future that you may re-assign him to me.

Craig is just brilliant! It's the second time we used him and we are so so happy! We couldn't ask for a better pet- sitter. MY DOGS JUST LOVE HIM... They were happier to see him then to see us LOL! He is just awesome and definitely worth every penny! Thanks Craig for letting us being able to trust you and for giving my furry kids the love and attention they need when we couldn't. YOU ROCK!

Shorne Vorster, mom of Chuck (Rottweiler cross), PIppa (Dachshund cross), Levi (Dachshun)d), and Sonic (Miniature Poodle)

Upon coming home I was welcomed by two very excited, well cared for doggies (and a peacefully sleeping hedgehog). I will definitely make use of StudentCo (and also Francois specifically) again and recommend it to everyone from my grandma to the guy that tries to wash my windows at the traffic light. Hi five, StudentCo!

I was super impressed with the service. Damian was amazing and I also have to mention that Caro was very efficient and helpful as well. I am so glad my friend introduced me to Studentco and I will most certainly use it again. Thank you so much for the peace of mind you gave me while I was on holiday.

Chevonne Vermaak, mom of Ruthie and Chatzi (cats)

Danielle exceeded all my expectations! I was more than happy with how she treated my kiddies, how she left the house, how she kept me up to date at all times and her overall demeanour and communication. I would recommend her to anyone and would love to make use of her services again since my kids enjoyed her so much and since no one else could give me the peace of mind that she did.

Erica Lombard, mom of Camou (Dachshund), Lalae (Dachshund) and Steffie (Staffie)

I would like to sincerely thank Charmaine for lovingly looking after my four legged children while we were on holiday during December 2015. She kept me up to date with their well-being daily and even sent me photos of them looking very content and happy!! I would definitely recommend your pet sitter service to all my friends.

Engela was brilliant with our dogs, and took such good care of them. It was a relief to be able to go away knowing that our babies were in such good hands. She sent photographs to me with every visit, and really spent the time giving them attention and lots of cuddles. I am so grateful to her, and will definitely ask for her in the future. Thanks Engela, the dogs and I love you to bits!

As always, Louis was on the ball. When one of our pets did not feel well, he immediately contacted us. Thereafter he constantly gave us updates in respect of her well being. I am very impressed with Louis!
