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

All my life I have been around animals and naturally my love for them became a very important part of my life. I have had a variety of pets over the years, including multiple species of dogs, cats, rats, snakes, fish and birds. I plan on working with or around animals my entire life, and plan on owning an exotic farm when I decide to settle down and retire.
