StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

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

Experience with animals and own pets

I am an animal lover, a lover of all animals in fact!

I am lucky to share my life with 3 lovable dogs: Roxy, Simson and Bella. Roxy is a 5 year-old Golgen Spaniel who loves playing around with her ball and going for runs with Bella. Simson is a 3-year old Golden Spaniel and a true mama's boy. He is in his happy place when he can simply sit with me and be pampered. Bella is a 4-year old Jack Russell Terrier, who is unable to sit still for even a minute, being true to her breed. She loves going for runs, playing fetch, playing with her toys and jumping over every obstacle she can find.

I have experience in looking after pets and homes of family and friends. I am also part of the volunteering group at the SPCA.
