Our Sitters

Our sitters are selected according to strict criteria, and bound by a strict code of conduct. We take the responsibility of caring for your home and pets very seriously, and pride ourselves in doing so as per your unique instructions. You can be certain that your home and pets are cared for by true animal lovers – we receive thousands of applications, with only 1 in 10 applicants typically being approved to join our team.

Who are our sitters?

StudentCo pet sitters are a group of students and graduates who absolutely adore animals.

They are selected with the following in mind:

  • Personal pet ownership
  • Strong references
  • Prior house and pet sitting experience
  • A distinction for our veterinary emergencies and pet sitting procedure test
  • Experience volunteering at animal charities
  • Comfort with different types of pets

Be matched with a sitter you like and trust

After completing an enquiry, you will be matched with a suitable sitter. Next, a complimentary, obligations-free meet-and-greet is arranged. This informal meeting at your home allows you to discuss your rules and expectations openly, get to know your sitter - and make sure your fur kids approve!

Before meeting your sitter, you will also be asked to complete a Pet Parent Instruction sheet. This document will take only a few minutes, but ensures that your sitter is equipped to look after your home and pets exactly the way you require. Your sitter will bring this along to the meet-and-greet so you can discuss everything in person.
