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

You know you’re a dog person when you are more excited about getting to see your friends’ dog, rather than your actual friend when you go to visit them.

Our family owns three dogs - Krummel, Misha and Phoebe. Just like people, each one of them has a different personality and likes to be shown affection in different ways, but none of them will ever reject a loving belly rub. Krummel just turned twelve this past November and she is still full of life, smiling at us with pink gums where her teeth used to be. Misha, on the other hand, is our large guard dog, who loves playing tug of war with her toys. She has a special soft spot for ear massages and will constantly beg for this treat with her big brown eyes.

Phoebe is my dog and she is the most loving baby. She is always happy to see you even when you come home late or leave early for university. She loves to lay on your lap whenever she has the opportunity and will try to lick off every bit of makeup you so carefully applied that morning. She has a fondness for playing with sticks and will try to outrun every other dog, even though she has the shortest legs of them all.

My brother has four goldfish and I feed them quite often, since he can be forgetful every now and then. We have had hamsters and cats in the past, but unfortunately our cat, Shakira, ran away and our hamsters died of old age, after have 15 babies within a year (after which they got separate cages).

I would count my aunt’s two Yorkshire Terries as my god children, since I take care of them when she is on holiday. Alvin and Tinkie are the wittiest tiny creatures I have ever encountered. Tinkie almost melts when you stroke the back of her neck just below her skull and Alvin will drag every toy he can find to you and will try to play with them all at once. They are exceptionally good at manipulation, as they always get treats for being good doggies. I also cared for my grandmother’s parrot when she went on holiday. His name is Tweegie.

In my holidays, I want to start volunteering at our local Wollies shelter to help the dogs and cats who are in need. There are so many dogs in need of some TLC and it would be a privilege to help them out.
