Experience with animals and own pets

All my life, I have been surrounded by pets.

I currently have two beautiful big dogs, Pugsley who is a mix and match, and Sasha who is a Boerboel. I also have a hyperactive cat (who thinks she's a human!) named Tory.

I like to end off my day playing in the garden with my dogs, giving them cuddles and brushing them.

On a nice hot summer's day, I enjoy playing with them in the pool and letting them chase the hose pipe water. During my study/work breaks I run around the house with a string for my crazy cat to chase after! At night, we occasionally enjoy a snuggle in my bed, depending on the weather.

I grew up with two Spaniels (Coco and Lucy) and several other cats, two of which were rescues.

I have some experience house sitting and pet sitting for a friend's family.

Additional Comments:

It is not the first time I have used StudentCo and I had used another sitter and wanted them thinking they were the best BUT my change to Adrienne was awesome!

Even better and will request her in the future.

It seems that all your sitters are brilliant as the one was better than the previous one.

Someone looking after my babies is nerve-wrecking when leaving it to "strangers" but your quality of sitters is incredible.

Keep it up!
