Experience with animals and own pets

Growing up, I've always had dogs in the house. I currently have three dogs. I have a staffie, Luigi, and two jack russels, Misty and Daisy.

After I come back from varsity, I love taking them for walks , playing with them or even napping with them.

Animals have always held a special place in my heart and have always managed to cheer me up after a long day. After I heard about Student Co, I couldn't wait to sign up and meet a whole bunch of new animals!

Additional Comments:

When we arrived home, I could tell that my dogs did not lack attention or affection at all. They were relaxed and they are noticeably very fond of Sascha (I think my dogs like Sascha better than they like me).

I am very impressed by how well she took care of my rabbits and even medicated the one (a task not particularly easy and one that not many people are up to).

She was not deterred by a major power outage in the area or a difficult bunny who constantly got up to mischief - she handled it all perfectly.

I enjoyed my holiday without a single worry about my furkids.

Additional Comments:

Sascha was very helpful and flexible to assist in our arrangements for arrival and departure times.

My babies enjoyed their walk and their swim afterwards tremendously!

They ate and behaved normally during her stay, so they obviously also approved!

She reported everything to me that we needed to know and she was a star at following all the directions I left.

Happy pups!

Additional Comments:

Sascha looked after our Aussies for 2 weeks while we went on holiday.

I have never been so comfortable with someone looking after my fur-babies like I am with Sascha.

I got daily updates as I woke up, with details of how it went the previous day.

She is amazing with dogs and they are extremely happy when she is here.

Would recommend her as a pet sitter any day :-)
