StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Ildea V

Area: Lynnwood, Pretoria, Elspark, Germiston and Dalview, Brakpan

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

Course of study: Architecture

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: October 2017


Experience with animals and own pets

Last year, I was blessed to receive the best gift ever for my birthday: A little Yorkie called Pippie. We are the best of friends. She follows me everywhere I go and loves sitting on my lap while I'm studying or drawing floor plans for my studies.

She has 3 brothers and 2 sisters: Zeus & Misty the Great Danes, Gizmo & Bailey the Yorkies and Ernie the Pug. They all are great friends.

I love all my pets. Without them my life would feel incomplete.

I have looked after friends', family members' and employers' pets. My love for animals in general keeps me driven to help where I can, like finding homes for abandoned fur babies and making sure they get the love they deserve.

I am absolutely thrilled with Ildea.

I definitely hope she is available every time I need to go away.

She is professional, caring and a pleasure to speak with.

Thanks you so much.

One thing I asked her, shouldn't there also be a survey or feedback from the Pet Sitter to fill out about their customers? I would like to receive suggestions or comments, maybe there is something I can do make the care for our dogs easier or my house neater, etc. It would be valuable information. Thank you, Christine.

When our dogs get bored, frustrated or have too much energy, they dig holes in the garden.

Additional Comments: Ildea was the perfect choice for me. Zorro in particular needs a lot of work in bad weather and she was fantastic at checking weather reports before leaving the house, and ensuring that he was not alone in the several thunderstorms that took place. All 3 dogs are fit and healthy and clearly didn't miss us as much as usual :)! Our home was left spotless for our return. Ildea is so pleasant. I look forward to my next trip away. Thank you so much !
