StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Jonathan G

Area: Queenswood and Capital Park, Pretoria

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

I am currently: Self Employed, starting BIS Multimedia January 2020

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: July 2019


Experience with animals and own pets

I currently have 2 cats, Dusty and Syler. Syler allows me to follow him to his pet food and stroke him while he eats, he returns the favour by sitting on my lap during cold winters.

Animals are half my life, I will never be able to get enough of them. If I find a lost dog on the street, I will go through the neighbourhood knocking on every door to find the owner, if no luck Facebook is the go-to.

I love visiting shelters and talking the dogs on walks on Sundays since I don't have the space to accommodate them all at my home.

Please describe how you know this person:

Jonathan was introduced to me by a friend after mentioning that it is not always easy finding someone to look after my pets when I am not home. I have had Jonathan take care of my pets (8 dogs, hedgehog and 2 tenrecs) a few times while I am away on business (sometimes 2 weeks at a time) and have always come home to find my pets taken well care of and well fed. He also loves playing with dogs to get rid of all their built-up energy.

Additional notes:

Jonathan is a punctual guy, friendly and always willing to help. I have never had any complaints from him, I would like to continue using him in future.
