House-sitting Service Provides peace of mind

A number of years ago, we noticed that the current boarding facilities in Port Elizabeth just cannot cope with the demand for the boarding service in peak times, and there was a genuine need for an efficient and reliable house-sitting service, where owners could leave their pets at home.
This sector of the business is operated by our son Devin, who is currently a 26 year old university student. Devin has been actively involved in the business since the age of 11 years and has proven to be both an asset as well as an extremely popular part of our team.

Devin charges a daily rate for this service, which consists of him visiting your home on a twice-daily basis.

  • Dogs will be walked and exercised and played with in the morning and fed if on 2-meals a day.
  • Cats have the opportunity of attention time.
  • Their water is changed and a visual health check is done.
  • The pool is checked and pot plants watered where necessary.
  • Devin returns to the house in the evening to feed the animals and again check that all is well with them (and that they have not pulled up half your garden in an effort to get even for being left at home!).
  • Should you wish for him to spend the night at the house, this can also be arranged.
