Experience with animals and own pets

I have been blessed to be able to be surrounded by pets my entire life. I have always had at least two dogs and a cat at every point in my life!

I currently have two cats, Crystal and Nina. Crystal is about eight months old and Nina is going on nine years now. Nina was a cat that we rescued from the Johannesburg Fresh Produce Market and has had our hearts since day one.

I also have five dogs, Champ (Boerboel), Tess (Jack Russel), Hedgie (Boerboel X Jack Russel), Smurfette (Boerboel X Jack Russel) and Boofy (Boerboel X Jack Russel). Yes, we have three generations of a Jack Russel and Boerboel family…But you'll have to hire me to hear the full story 😉.

Your little puppies and kittens will also be in great hands as I have been privileged to raise two litters of kittens and three litters of puppies from birth to eight weeks.

I can 100% and then some promise you that your pets will be in great hands.

Additional Comments:

Amy-Lee is lovely and I felt comfortable throughout the whole weekend with her due to frequent updates.

The only note I can give is that the kitchen was kind of dirty when I returned. We do have a dishwasher so dishes can just be packed in the dishwasher when leaving. I did not mention this in the meet-and-greet though as I assumed that this is obvious. Just another note - We will probably not be using StudentCo during May 2018 since we have house guests for the month and they will take care of Odin & Loki when we go away. The "quiet" month has nothing to do with the minor complaint mentioned earlier. We are very happy with the service of Studentco (specifically Nicole and Amy-Lee) and fully intend to resume our support in June 2018. Kind Regards, Quinton

Note from StudentCo: Amy-Lee was reminded of her duty to wash her dishes, and keep homes clean

Additional Comments:

Amy was a star and my pets absolutely loves her.

She informed me about the domestic and garden services on arrival time, time left and what they did.

Took the puppys for walks and they were well looked after.

I will definately ask her to look after my furry children and my house again.

Amy-Lee was professional, polite and took care of our fur-kids!

I can truly recommend her, and have in fact, already recommended StudentCo to many people.

It's never fun to leave the fur-kids behind, but with Amy to assist and giving us daily reports - we could relax and enjoy our family holiday!

Thank you Amy! :)
