To whom it may concern, Reference – Mr. Piet Le Roux – Pet / House sitter. It gives me great joy to be able to write this character reference for Mr. Piet le Roux. Piet is truly a Petsitter “extraordinaire”, one of a kind. Piet came into our lives in August 2016 and has spent approximately over 60 days petsitting for us. A combination of a massive Rottweiler that needs lots of exercise and a Staffie that needs a lot of love and attention does not make it easy to find a person with the right qualities to look after them. From the moment that Piet arrived at our house to assume his duties I could see that he has an excellent rapport with dogs and they both took an instant liking to him. I was hardly at the airport when pics and updates of the three of them playing on the beach were sent to my cellphone.

These updates continued unabated all the time whilst Piet was looking after them. He even went the extra mile and kept my parents updated as to the welfare of their “granddogs” at all times.Piet is an absolute pleasure to have as a Pet / House sitter and is a very reliable person with unquestionable moral values and integrity. Also he goes above and beyond to whats required and since he spent such a long time in our home even was prepared to do bits of maintenance required, he also oversaw our house being painted. I can recommend Piet to anyone that is in need of a Pet/House sitter and will, without hesitation, always make use of his services in the future. I can be contacted on my cell or per e-mail at the details below if you require any further details. Yours sincerely, Barbara-Anne Steinbrucker - Cape Town - 27 January 2017. 

Piet has proven to be reliable and quick to respond. We will have him back at our small holding in Klipheuwel. Thank-you for the outstanding service - Wynanda - June 2014

I would just like to tell you how immensely pleased I am that I have come into contact with Piet le Roux. He has just completed a 2nd house sit for me and really makes it possible for me to comfortably leave my animals for the time that I am away. When someone is confronted by three rottweilers - especially as spoilt as mine are - and copes immediately then one knows that this person is special. My dogs were extremely traumatised by a previous house sitter who basically locked the dogs up and abandoned them for hours if not days on end - not one of your professionals but a friend's step son. My male Rocco accepted. Piet immediately and showed no signs of panic. I recommend Piet with absolute confidence and I commend your company on offering an extremely professional service to those of us who want our animals to remain at home in their comfort zone. Kind regards - Lorraine Cronje - Sept 2015 - Somerset West.


 We were very happy when Piet took care of our fur children Sam & Bonnie. It was such a blessing being able to go away and know that our dogs were in good hands in their own environment. Like we do, Piet took a long walk with Sam & Bonnie twice a day so their lives and routines were not upset by our absence. We can highly recommend Piet to anyone, to look after and truly care for your pets, and take care of your home. Thank you so much! Steff Sims - 2016

Dear Pet Sitters Cape Town. We have been back for 2 weeks now and have been meaning to write a reference for Piet Le Roux who house sat for us for 5 weeksPiet is most definitely the best house\pet sitter we’ve ever had.  He made an effort to meet with us a couple of times before we left to go on our 5 week vacation which made everything much simpler to go through.  He understood clearly what needed to be done on our property and took care of everything meticulously.  He has the common sense to sort out little problems as they arise.

The most important thing of all, is that it was quite clear that he was just perfect for our 3 dogs.  They adored him and it seemed that their lives & routines were not upset at all by our absence.  We had often had problems in the past and felt the dogs unease when we left and when we returned but this time, they were quite happy, fit & healthy.  It was a pleasure to feel comfortable knowing that he was taking care of our property and fur children and also enjoying it himself.  We will most definitely be using Piet again. Thanks so muchMandy Millsap - Cape Town - June 2016
