If you like this profile, remember the name "Zahn V" 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.

Name of sitter: Zahn V

Area: Randburg (Northcliff)

Note: Zahn happily looks after pets who are not in her immediate area - driving is not a problem.

Course of study: BSc (Emergency Medical Care)

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: March 2016

Experience with animals and own pets

We have two cats and two Jack Russell Terriers. The dogs are very lively and always up for fun! I like to playing ball with them, and swimming together. Our cats have two different types of personalities - the one is definitely a house cat and loves attention. He thinks he's a person. But the other one is an independent spirit - we only see him at dinner time! I adore playing with the cats and my dogs. It always makes me smile.

Additional Comments:

Zahn had a difficult job as my animals are high maintenance to begin with, and added to that, two of the four had to be watched very closely. She more than did this, and she is most definitely our first choice every time we go away.

Can't recommend Zahn enough! She was just perfect.

Zahn was fantastic and looked after our dogs and home in December 2017.

We would definitely have her back to petsit for us.
