Name of sitter: Shannon-Lee M

Area: Amberfield Valley, Centurion; Moreletapark, Pretoria and Westcliff, Johannesburg

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

Course of study: BBA in Hospitality Management

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: September 2017

Experience with animals and own pets

I have plenty of pet sitting experience - it is something I really enjoy! I have looked after dogs, cats, bunnies and birds. One day, I hope to also get a chance to work with horses.

I have a mixed-breed puppy of my own from the SPCA.

I'm very particular with house rules and instructions as I know each owner has a routine and way going about cleaning habitats, food and medicines. My own puppy, Astro, for example has to take various medicines and a special oil on his food for his skin allergy.
