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 two Yorkshire terriers, Romeo and Gustav. I don't consider them my pets, but rather my roommates. Romeo is my best friend and the best listener, he is currently 10 years of age. Gustav is still the young teenager in the house, he wakes me up with kisses every morning, he is currently 1 year old.

Whenever life gets overwhelming all I need to do is take a long walk with these two boys. I have always been fond of animals, they tend to ground you whenever you get caught up in a busy routine. I have looked after many pets, and each and every one of them still has a place in my heart. I am a regular volunteer at the Centurion SPCA.
