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 have grown up with animals in my house at all times! At any given point, I have had three dogs and a cat in my house. When I was 6 I received a canary (named Tweetie ) as a birthday present and I was responsible for feeding him as well as cleaning out his cage. I have always been responsible for feeding the animals that we have and I do so every morning and every evening. I am also responsible for bathing my dogs. When I was 16 I was given a Yorkie as a present and since then I have been responsible for him. He is my baby (named Miloh) - he sleeps in my room and follows me everywhere. I take him for walks and play with him regularly.

I have a house sitting experience, looking after a Husky and two small doggies. I have also looked after an older Golden Retriever, a Border Collie, a Jack Russell Terrier as well as a cat and a parrot.
