StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Frances S

Experience with animals and own pets

I have had pets for as long as I can remember!

My family has included cats, hamsters, dogs - and even a large group of pet rats. Currently, I have two dogs and one cat. They bring joy to my life with their unique personalities and entertaining antics.

I love animals and even went for courses at the Pretoria Zoo from the age of eight to twelve. The picture I have uploaded is only featuring my dog, Bonnie, as my others pets are camera shy.

This was Frances first time house and pet sitting and even though there was an attempted break in at the gate, she dealt with it extremely well, as well as afterwards,so much so that the security company commented on her vigilance.
