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

From a young age, we have always had animals in our house. I have been blessed enough to grow up in a family full of humanitarians and animal lovers.

We have two cats, Marmalade and Nala, who both love to sleep. We also have two dogs, Brighton, who's a chocolate Labrador, and Xena, who's a Ridgeback x Boerbull. Both our dogs are rescues from the SPCA and they stole our hearts instantly. They both have completely different temperaments and energy levels, but I love training them both and taking them to the dog park close by.

Although I've mostly looked after my animals, I love all breeds, big and small and I know each animal is unique and has their own personality. I have had previous experience volunteering at animal shelters and am a big supporter of adopting animals. No matter where you get your pets from, I would love and care for them as if they were my own.
