About Essie

I'm a conservation biologist who is passionate about all kinds of critters! I love taking care of pets and will make sure they are as happy as larry while you're away. I have experience taking care of a wide variety of pets: dogs (large and small), cats/kittens, lizards, frogs, fish (marine and freshwater) and turtles. If you have any exotic pets I am your go to! I currently have a young dachshund puppy named Rory and I have a soft spot for sausage dogs!

I can provide dog walking suited to the dog's need (slower for older dogs and faster for the energetic ones). I can provide longer walks and use specific routes if requested. During visits, I will make sure your pet gets plenty of cuddles/play time and make sure everything is all okay with their food, water, kitty litter, etc. Feel free to let me know what your pet needs and I will do my best to make that happen. I am also happy to meet up prior to taking care of your pet so we can get to know one another.

I work Monday-Friday as a conservation biologist, so I am available mornings, evenings and on the weekends. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting your furbabies!

Essie was great. Cat was more settled having regular feeding times and dog was happy. Recommend no problems. Thanks again Essie.

Essie showed up on time to meet us and to collect the keys. She didn't force herself on the cats on arrival and let them sniff and come to her in their own time (didn't take long!).

We came home to two cat sleeping in their beds - completely unstressed and happy.
