StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Courtney M" 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.

Name of sitter: Courtney M.

Area: Pretoria (Zwavelpoort)

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

Course of study: BSc (Human Physiology)

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: December 2015

Experience with animals and own pets

I love animals and regularly volunteer as a dog walker at Wetnose.

I am lucky to live on a plot and share my life with a wide variety of animals - 2 Dobermans as well as chickens, goats and sheep. Though Dobermans are generally considered to be guard dogs, Roxy and Tara are very friendly and loving!

Additional Comments: Thanks StudentCo - this provides such a great alternative for using a kennel and as my dog is always traumatized following a kennel stay, we kept holidays to an absolute minimum. StudentCo provides piece of mind and we will absolutely use the service again. :-)

Additional Comments:

Courtney arrived on time and kindly gave our Domestic a lift up to the gate of our estate.

We had already been gone a week and we used your company so that she could have a weekend off.

Worked very well and we would consider your company so that she could have a weekend off.

Worked very well and we would consider your company next time.

Additional Comments:

Courtney is an absolute rock star!

This is the second time she has been assigned to us - and we will not hesitate to request her again.

In addition to the above review, on both occasions, she seemingly spent the majority of her time at our home and with our doggies - which is a huge relief with our anxious furkids.

StudentCo is an absolute must for a pet owner who must have peace of mind when away.
