StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Pieter D

Experience with animals and own pets

I am that person who stops everything to stop and play with the doggie first, if it is in a mall or at a festival or even on holiday. I have a deep love for animals, I love how you can feel comfort and loved by them and no word is ever spoken.

I myself struggle to get a dog or animal and want to be able to love and take care of one so badly and now thanks to StudentCo I can meet people and love their doggies, making me able to share my love for animals!
