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.

Experience with animals and own pets

I have always had a great respect for animals of all kinds. At home I take care of multiple chickens, ducks, birds and fish as well as four cats (Bat, Gandalf, Gebreklik and Bubbles) and six dogs (Hold, Bella, Worsie, Frankie, Hachi and Lily) of all sizes and ages. I also have experience looking after the pets of friends and family.

I enjoy spending time with animals and getting to know their unique personalities. It is incredibly important for animals to feel love and respect so I often go on walks with my dogs and they love to go to parks for a bit of freedom.

All of my animals are special to me because they are great companions and we are all excited to see each other when I get home from varsity.
