About Francesca
I started doing this in 2019 to explore the city and loved doing it ever since. I love both Dogs and Cats! I have never wanted to put them in a tough situation, so years of renting means I've never been able to have one of my own... however, I used to take up every opportunity to sit for family, friends and neighbours. My longest experience was whenever I babysat for a neighbour of mine for 3 years - they had 2 border collies, 2 ragdoll cats and 1 tortoishell cat. I loved spending time with them.
I worked for Guide Dogs for 2 years as an admin and taking a break from studying Agriculture. Right now, I would love to spend my time putting someones mind at ease...

I have experience in overnight and day care for Dogs, Cats and Rodents.

I have longer experience with the following breeds:
- Toy Poodle
- Labrador
- Australian Cattle Dog
- Border Collie
- Shar-Pei
- Ragdoll kittens

I'm often told I have an old soul and very responsible - by friends and employers - and I hope I can help.

Note: I am married and apply for two people for longer sitting assignments!
My husband, Calvin, had a cat (RIP potter), and a handyman father growing up to show him how to fix almost anything in a house. He’s always the favourite pet snuggle spot, because he’s basically an electric blanket shaped like an academic.

Francesca is amazing and she has the ability to not only calm my hyper puppy but also me, as nervous first time fur-mamma. Great tips and flexible.Will be working with her on regular basis for sure.

Pet Sitting - Dec 7, 2020
What a gem! Friendly & professional, she kept our routine so our pets barely noticed we were gone! Won over two shy rabbits & gave our cats lots of love. House was left spotless. Getting daily pics & updates was really reassuring-we'll be back!
