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.

Name of sitter: Caira G

Area: North Riding, Randburg

Note: Caira happily looks after pets who are not in her immediate area - driving is not a problem.

Course of study: BA (Psychology)

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: November 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

I have two 8 month old Labrador puppies, namely Bolt and Luna. They are both as goofy as they come! I have taught them numerous skills and tricks. They do get spoilt a bit too much- I adore them too much to treat them any different!

Previously, I have looked after pets while in High School (for no monetary rewards). I enjoy the job so much and thus am more than happy to exceed expectations. A frequent task of mine in high school was to take many dogs for walks. I was a regular volunteer at the Mooi River SPCA.
