StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Justin P

Area: Garsfontein, Pretoria

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

I am currently: A 3rd year Archaeology and Psychology student at the University of Pretoria

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: November 2019


Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up with dogs and we have adopted the dogs we currently have. I have a German Sheppard cross Chow who loves to play fetch - although he does not understand the concept of returning the ball. We also have a Border Collie cross that is very energetic and loves to swim, drag her blankets around the yard, and has adopted my car seat of my beach buggy!

My responsibilities include feeding both daily, baths, grooming and playing with them. My German Sheppard is also very fond of walks and we walk around our neighbourhood.

Additional Comments:

Justin is a wonderful pet sitter and darling person.

He really went out of his way to make sure the doggies went on nice long walks and updated me before and after each visit. I loved it!

The doggies were visibly relaxed and happy when I got home.

We will definitely be seeing more of Justin.

Thank you!
