StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Lynette H" 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 am an animal lover and I am a firm believer that an animal can be a person's best friend. I am therefore so happy to have Peppi and Wally as my best friends!

Peppi is a 2 year-old Schnauzer and the latest addition to the family. She is incredibly loving and loves to know what her owner is eating. Wally is 3 years old and loves it when I take him on his daily walk. He is a crossbreed and we adopted him from a family who could not afford to look after him.

I believe that it is essential to not only have pets in your life but also to rescue animals instead of buying them.

I have always had dogs growing up and I know how to look after animals from having dogs since I can remember! I also have experience in looking after animals since I looked after friends' and neighbours’ pets while they were away.

I enjoy volunteering at Wetnose whenever I have time and love spending time with all animals!
