StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Ashley V" and simply click here to tell us more about your pets and when you will need a sitter. StudentCo will let you know if this pet sitter is available (if not, you will be introduced to another, equally awesome, team member).

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 have volunteered at the PTA zoo, cleaning cages and feeding animals. I also attended a learning course here. Furthermore, I have done obedience training courses with my dogs.
