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 share my home with a 2-year-old Great Dane called Oliver! He is super energetic and a huge big baby! I adopted Oliver through Gumtree, as his owners were moving away and did not want him anymore. Our family also owns a gorgeous Jack Russell Terrier, Wagter, who has been with us for many years. She thinks she’s the size of a Pitbull!

Boeta, the Yorkie, and Brakkie, the “pavement special”, also form part of our huge family, as well as Jaws and Piranha - my two cockatiels who love to speak and sing. Last, but not least, I have a spoilt Bearded Dragon called Gogga.

I have experience with caring for cats in the past, and though we do not have one of our own, I really enjoy taking care of them.
