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

Growing up with many Great Danes as my pets has allowed me to feel super comfortable around all sizes and shapes of pets. There is nothing better than quiet evenings at home working on a project with a cup of coffee and a sleeping pet on my lap or feet :)
