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.

Experience with animals and own pets

I share a home with 3 amazing pets and an aquarium of fish, who all bring me so much joy!

Clara is an 8-year-old Border Collie who I received as a present when she was a puppy. She brings so much love and happiness into my life. Dennis (the Menace) is a 4-and-a-half-year-old Pekingese who is as lovable as he is naughty, bringing smiles to people’s faces all day. My cat, Dexter, is 4 years old and draws people in with her adorable meows and lazy, yet playful nature. I also own almost a dozen fish who brighten up our house too.

My favourite time of day is when I get home and see my two doggie babies run up to me and greet me with their waggling tails. I enjoy petting and playing around with Clara as much as I love running around with Dennis. Dexter keeps me company while I read or catch a nap, or when she feels like playing with her feathered string toy.

It is my passion to own and love many animals, as I adore and get on well with dogs, cats and many other species of amazing pets. Animals should be loved and cared for by the right kind of people - ones who are able to give them the proper love and attention they need.

My only experience in looking after homes and pets are those of my own home and animals. I have done so a few times when my parents have gone away on holiday.
