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

Animals have always been a part of my life. Growing up, my mother would tell me how she could leave me to play on the floor with our two dogs Vinnie, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and Muffin, a Maltese Poodle, when I was a toddler and not once did they ever get violent.

I loved them very much. After they passed, we bought another Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Hercules, who has been a handful at times (he ate most of our patio set), but has such a lovely nature.

Dogs are always happy to see you and after a long day there is nothing better than seeing them. I have experience in looking after my friends and families’ pets and homes and also experience in feeding and looking after pets in my area.
