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.

Experience with animals and own pets

I have four pets - a beautiful Border Collie farm dog named Russell, one ambitious little Chihuahua named Minky and two mixed cats named Layla and Yuki. My pets love each other and my family and I adore them. My experience with animals ranges from the various pet and house sitting jobs I have done, which involved me providing food, water, grooming and all my attention to six cats (from three families), two dogs and five fish. I also love to visit animal shelters, such as the SPCA and Woodrock Animal Rescue, to give the animals love and promote their adoptions.
