Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: March 2018


Experience with animals and own pets

My experiences with animals are widespread: I shared my childhood with a large German Shepard cross. Right now, I share my home with a curly hair tarantula, Madagascan hissing cockroaches and my wonderful and fluffy grey cat that often sits on my bed, staring out my window at night.

I also have had many amazing opportunities of handling and feeding various pets, such as bearded dragons, snakes, chinchillas and some smaller ranges of birds.

I know numerous basic care tips for all kinds of animals and had some bad past experiences with animal poisoning and car accidents, that have hopefully prepared me for the future.

I have volunteered at the SPCA a bunch of times during events like outreaches, where they sterilize the animals, or just to go walk the dogs through the gardens.

Most of all I am very excited to meet all the wonderful pets and pet owners out there!

Additional Comments:

Frederich was absolutely AWESOME!!!!

We have used him before, and had to use him this time for 3 weeks.

He really took care of our house, and went above and beyond anything expected as he had to sort out a geyser that packed up, as well as had to deal with valuators from a bank.

I can most definitely recommend him to anybody in the area.

His soft nature put my normal skitish cat at complete ease - and that says a lot.

Freddy, we cannot thank you enough!!!!!!

StudentCo better appreciate you, you are an absolute gem.

Additional Comments: I have difficult girls in the sense that they love their environment. StudenCo is gorgeous in the sense that my doggie children can stay in their own environment while we are away. I am definitely going to book again a few times this year for sure. Thank you so much for this service.

Additional Comments: Freddy was A M A Z I N G! For the first time in ages I went on holiday knowing my fur babies were in the capable hands of Freddy. Freddy exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone. He is kind, caring and sets ones mind at ease from the first time you meet him. He kept us updated all the time we were away and even double checked with us when we made a mistake on the manner in which medication had to be given to Bruce. Freddy is the best!!
