The next step is the meet-and-greet. This is an informal meeting at your home so you (and your pets!) can get to know a potential sitter. You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking. The meet-and-greet is 100% cost and obligation-free and will be arranged for a time that suits you.

Experience with animals and own pets

I am very lucky to have two dogs at home. Sandy is a Labrador, who just turned 10 and loves a good tummy rub. Charlie is a 2-year-old Westie and has a huge obsession with tennis balls! I love my dogs so much - they are like my babies! I often spend my study breaks throwing tennis balls for Charlie or giving Sandy a good brush and tummy rub.

I have lots of experience with community service - having completed over 144 hours - and look forward to getting involved with organisations like the SPCA when I start varsity next year. I am a true animal lover - I don’t even eat any animal meat.
