Name of sitter: Linoi M

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: November 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

My Chow Chow Simba is a rescue dog from the SPCA; he is currently 3 years old. Adopting him was the greatest gift I could ever ask for. I love him so much and he is so full of character! Simba is incredibly affectionate and is very loving and protective. My favourite time with him is definitely nap time and cuddling while watching some of our favourite TV series. Simba enjoys a good rub all the time and lots of food.

I also own a Goldfish, and he is quite the fighter and is 1 and a half years old.

I get along with all my family and friend's pets.

I often find myself spending more time with the animals then the people I'm supposed to be visiting!

Additional Comments:

Linoi, even though it was her 1st assignment, went out of her way to accommodate the pets, as well as keeping us informed of everything that was happening.

Lots of pictures.

She mostly communicated with my daughter Kiah (who was with us) who is also one of your petsitters.

She probably gave some guidance.

Would definately, use Linoi again, as well as your service

Thanks again, Linoi !!
