Experience with animals and own pets

Forget diamonds, animals are a girl’s best friend. Those having pets would be able to explain the relation they hold with these animals. Animals respond back with all their love and affection and would make sure that no harm reaches us. Whether it is dogs, cats or birds, pets have a special bonding with their human families.

One quality about myself that is important to me is my passion for wanting to help animals. I used to spend hours studying animals when I was younger by watching medical shows on channels such as Animal Planet because I enjoyed watching and learning about the pet hospitals and how they worked. In 2015 my family and I adopted our puppy from the SPCA. It was hard at first to teach her that we only want to love and care for her, she was so scared. Today I am proud to say that she is probably the happiest ball of fur to walk the planet and gets along perfectly with our two cats.

My pets are very important companions in my life. As a pet owner, I have a need to forever want what is best for our loyal friends. I find comfort in knowing that my own pets are there beside me to share in my joys or facilitate me in times of unhappiness. I have learnt so much from them. Whether it is the way my kitten catches my feet when I’m wearing socks or my dog that literally gives me a hug when I have had a hard day,, I can always count on them to show me the important things in life. I do understand the heartache of leaving our furry friends at home. It is important to me to make sure that my pets feel at home even when I am not there.

Gandhi once said: “ The greatness of a nation and it’s moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”, and I could not agree more.

Additional Comments:

We felt Annemari went over and above her normal duties and that she really loved and cared for our fur babies.

We also got along with her well and appreciated the regular feedback and updates on our two dogs at home.

We could relax and rest out during our holiday, knowing that the dogs were in great hands.

Thank you to StudentCo and the team and especially to Annemari.

Additional Comments:

I required a pet-sitter last minute and thus it was very urgent. StudentCo was quick to help find someone to look after my fur-babies.

Annemari did a great job.

I got lots of photo updates and upon my return my dogs looked happy and calm.

Visits with Robbies (Jack Russell) & Sasha (Lab X Spaniel)

Pet sitter: Annemari D

Pet parent: Della de Beer

Service type: Visits

Furkids: Robbies (Jack Russell) & Sasha (Lab X Spaniel)

Review: End-to-end, best pet sitting service I have used.

The forms and payment were painless and the pet sitter was so adorable and loving with our fur-babies, I was concerned they would want to live with her instead!

Videos and photos at every visit. She helped with an extra task on short notice. It's like having a "second you" on standby.

Fantastic service. Annemari, jy is fabulous!
