Should you be in need of a reliable individual to take care of your pets and ensure the completion of household chores while you’re away, you have made the wise choice.

The same responsible individuals stringently selected for tutoring and au pair positions perform the duty of sittersand as such you can be certain that your home and pets are cared for by truly conscientious individuals.

This service is individually tailored according to each client’s needs.

As fellow pet parents, we understand that you want only the best for your four-footed children – a friendly tumble in the garden, afternoon run in the park, and a warm lap to curl up in is just so much better than a cold cement kennel.

Plus, it’s home – the peace of mind that comes with familiarity of environment rather than exposure to strange surroundings and animals cannot be underestimated.

We understand that every pet has its own quirks and personality, and as such our sitters are willing and enthusiastic about taking care of any special needs.

The following services are offered:


Please note that all options include a daily dog walk and that no extra fee is charged for families with more than one pet.

StudentCo also offers you the opportunity to personally meet with and interview prospective sitters This complimentary service ensures that you select someone with whom you are one hundred percent satisfied.
