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.

Name of sitter: Nasiphi M.

Course of study: BCom (general)

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: December 2014

Area: Johannesburg (Linksfield)

Note: Nasiphi happily looks after pets who are not in her immediate area - driving is not a problem.


Experience with animals and own pets

We have two cats, Lily and Ella, whom I loved to cuddle, stroke and chat with. We are blessed to share our home with four dogs: A Labrador, a Golden Retriever (both were supposed to be guide dogs but due to health issues could not fulfill the needs of "working dogs" and are now part of our family), a mixed-breed doggie (she needed a home after her previous owner went to an old-age home), and finally another Golden Retriever who is in training to become a guide dog :).

Nasipi lives with us and has done for the last 14 years, she is very reliable and trustworthy. She often looks after my house with 4 dogs and a cat , she also helps with my puppy walking for guide dogs. We have big dogs and has no problem handling them.

She does promotion work and has other jobs where she seems to be very well liked. I would have no problem recommending her for any job.
