Name of sitter: Stefan C.

Area: Pretoria (Moreletapark)

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

Course of study: BCom (Accounting)

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: June 2016

Experience with animals and own pets

My family includes 2 small dogs, both 3 years old. They are named Max and Oscar. Two mixed breed doggies, we aren't sure which breeds they come from but we couldn't have asked for more loyal and loving dogs. We have also previously had cats and hamsters.

I love animals and have experience looking after the homes and pets of people I know. It is something I really enjoy doing!

Knowing that my furry children are in good hands makes my getaways so much more enjoyable!

I could never take them out of their "comfort zone" to stay in kennels somewhere - the fact that they can stay in their own home makes a big difference.
