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

My family consists of my little boy Jake, a 13-year-old Maltese Poodle. Jake loves playing fetch and loves cuddles on the couch. I also have a 12-year-old Golden Retriever named Candy. She is a big baby who loves tummy rubs. Candy also enjoys swimming and going for walks.

Next in my family I have two Persian cats. One is Roisin and she is a colour point. Roisin loves lying on her back and loves talking to people. My second cat is Kayla and she is a Persian chinchilla. She loves attention and her favourite place to sleep is right next to my face.

I have pet sat for family members before, as well as my parents’ friends and someone who heard of me through a friend. The types of animals I have pet sat are French Bulldogs, parrots, a Boston Terrier and various mixed breed dogs. I have also volunteered at the SPCA.
