StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Liam O" and simply click here to tell us more about your pets and when you will need a sitter. StudentCo will let you know if this pet sitter is available (if not, you will be introduced to another, equally awesome, team member).

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 adore animals! I have experience volunteering at the SPCA, and I've also been involved with a program that relocates stray cats. Furthermore, I've spent quite a bit of time shadowing at a veterinary clinic and have experience helping out on a cattle farm.

At home, I am lucky to share my life with a massive Boerboel called Bruno - the loveliest dog (although rather dim-witted at times!) - and a miniature pincher called Jasmine, who sees herself as the family's guard dog.
