The meet-and-greet is 100% cost and obligation-free and will be arranged for a time that suits you.


Name of sitter: Delene C

Area: Magalieskruin (Pretoria)

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

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: December 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

I am a working rider - I have worked with quite a few horses from green to level 1 dressage!

I have 4 (hyper!) dogs of my own, as well as an epileptic bunny.

I am the family pet sitter and groomer, having a lot of experience from taking my own dogs to advanced behaviour classes and assisting previous employers with their dogs.

I love all animals from hamsters to horses!

I chose Equine Ethology as a study and career path because of the satisfaction it provides me to see how far a rider and horse have come from where they have started. I often practice the same basics with my own fur-kids and have an amazing unique bond with each!

The science of nutrition in each animal appeals to me greatly.

I practice raw feeding with my own pooches and have no problem feeding raw to clients’ fur-kids.

I am very neat and fussy on my own pets and treat clients’ pets as I would my own!

Always willing to lend a hand whenever possible!
