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.

Name of sitter: Simone M

Area: Pretoria (Mooikloof, Monumentpark and Lynnwood)

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

Course of study: BEng Industrial

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: September 2016

Experience with animals and own pets

I have 3 dogs: Dash (Maltese Poodle) Logan (Jack Russell Terrier) and Hulk (Maltese Poodle). They are very energetic and require loads of attention! Our dogs are treated as family members and we love them dearly.

Before she passed away, I had a cat called Angel. She was the best sibling I had to play and cuddle with when I was younger!

I also do horse riding.

My pets mean the world to me and I will treat your pets with no less love and respect than my own!
