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.

Lize was an excellent sitter and a very humble person.

She dealt very well with Suiker's separation anxiety for two weeks, which makes Suiker a difficult dog to keep happy and well fed.

Additional Comments:

Lize was just wonderful!

It was the first time our furkids were left with someone other than a family member and we are so grateful for the positive experience.

Whilst away we also had an incident where our geyser burst and Lize notified us immediately, she was so understanding and accommodating and we were able to sort it out asap with no damage to the property.

Worth every penny and some.

We don't know how me managed before but we are so glad we found you Lize G.

Lize was once again outstanding!

Our dogs received their daily walks and on the weekend they got to do their favourite 'veld' stap everyday!

Lize did so much effort for them.

We are so grateful to have the peace of mind knowing our dogs are well cared for and certainly loved.

Thanks again Lize - we will you see you again soon !
