StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

If you like this profile, remember the name "Tyra P" and simply click here to tell us more about your pets and when you will need a sitter. StudentCo will let you know if this pet sitter is available (if not, you will be introduced to another, equally awesome, team member).

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

I have had a variety of pets throughout the years. I have had dogs, snakes, hamsters, silkworms and fish. I have a dog at the moment named Tank that I bought in 2010. She is a Scottish Terrier and has brought a lot of joy into my life. I have always had a good connection with animals and even the difficult animals seem to like me. Tank is a pedigree Scottie and loves to eat vegetables. His favourite vegetable is a carrot.
