About Stefanie

Hi! We‘re Alex and Stef, a young couple originally from Austria and we have been living in Cheltenham for 3 years now. We have both been around pets our whole life and after we have moved to England together, we decided to spend our free time looking after pets. This has mainly consisted of housesitting on another platform, but also walking dogs locally in Cheltenham. We have completed over 45 housesits, looking after 55+ different dogs, and many lovely cats. We have looked after large dogs, young dogs and puppies, but also older dogs. Same with cats! On some occasions we were lucky to gather experience looking after horses, turtles, rabbits, chickens and fish. We also have experience with drop-in visits. In our pictures, you can see some of the lovely pets we‘ve fallen in love with within our time pet sitting. Many of these we regularly go back to and look after, which makes us extremely happy :)

Petsitting has made us fall in love with dogs & cats so so much, it’s genuinely what we love doing most and we certainly want to continue this passion of looking after animals for probably all our lives! It brings us so much joy whenever we meet a new furry friend or we go back to see them again! We cannot wait to meet you and your pets and have the absolute best time with them giving them lots of love! :)

We can provide many references from the other platform we are on so please just send us a message. We can‘t wait to meet you!

Our current schedule:
We have just graduated university and after a couple months of travelling we have both started to work in our respective industries. Alex has started to work in an office in Cheltenham with two home-working days and Stef is currently still waiting to start her new role which will be part-time. We want to spend practically all of our free time with pets, and can be flexible in fitting our schedules around your needs.

What is important for us?
What‘s most important to us about pet care is that we genuinely love each pet we get to care for as if it was our own, we try to get to know them and bond with them, and then adapt to whatever the specific pet needs. Building trust is super important to us, so that definitely always comes first.

Note about Dog Day Care - at the moment we sadly cannot have pets in our home for a full day, as we live in a rental flat without a garden, but we thought we would still offer the service as we really like to go out on day trips with dogs, be out and about and explore. This would consist of a long walk, then maybe settling down in a dog friendly cafe for us to do our work, and then going on another walk. But really, it depends on what your dog generally likes to do - we are very happy to adapt to each dog specifically. Of course, we know that this is not for every dog; however we found that it works really well for some - so we wanted to offer it on here too. Just message us if you think we would be a good fit for spending the day with your dog and we can discuss further on how the day care should look like! :)

A typical day with us:
A typical day would very much depend on what the pet wants and needs. There is definitely a lot of cuddling & playing involved and for the active dogs there will be long walks, we absolutely love walking. We also try to not make it too different from what their normal day to day life looks like.

We can't wait to meet your pets!

Stef and Alex were great. Happy to be flexible about arrival and leaving, asked all the right questions. They were very calm and patient when the dog threw a tantrum and refused to eat or greet them on the first day because we had left her! Sent loads of pictures and kept us updated. Kept the house tidy and organised and were very understanding about the heating being broken! Would definitely use them again.
