StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Danielle R" 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 am so lucky to have grown up on a farm surrounded by many beautiful animals! We rescued many dogs and cats and gave them all a wonderful farm life. Growing up we took care of and raised many animals from little ducklings to pink baby piglets! I grew up around animals and love every single one of them, scaly or fluffy!

Right now I share my home with my two lazy leopard geckos, Mushu and Storm, as well as two rescue doggies from the SPCA, Bella and Jessie. My leopard geckos love sleeping on my shoulder when I study or running around on my table (pressing all the keys on my laptop and messing with my programs).

I have experience looking after pets of all shapes and sizes at the homes of friends and family. I have also volunteered at the Heidelberg SPCA.

I am really looking forward to meeting you and your lovely pets! See you soon.
