Hi, I’m Jess, I’m a 26 year old. I'm a super early riser, I am currently looking for a new job as I was made redundant so this is my full time job. I decided to become a pet sitter for all those dogs who don’t have a play mate at home and need one when their human goes away or to work. I also love the company of dogs. I love dogs, I have grown up with dogs as my dad breed dogs when I was younger. My dad had a bordercollie named Wombat before I was born so I had a dog from day dot. Almost 19 years he was in dad’s life and sadly old age got the better of him. He was the sweetest dog and live more of his life with three legs. Dad breed mainly working dogs who required a lot of attention and exercise, so it doesn’t bother me to spend hours at the dog park sometimes twice a day. I am very experienced in medium to large dogs including looking after a 70Kg bullmastiff. I usually take the dogs to the park for at least an hour for socialiing.
I do take a few dogs at a time but I always make sure they are friendly dogs that will all suit. I have looked after up to 8 dogs at once, I have babysat lots of dogs all breeds, sizes and ages over the years even before I had my own dogs for family and friends even friends of friends. I have two beautiful border collies who are my world. They are super friendly (too friendly that I need an actual guard dog), Louie is 6 going on 60 and Mowgli is 2. On my profile there is a picture with eight puppies which are Mowgli’s puppies and before they went to their new homes I looked after them at my house, so I was in border collie puppy heaven!! (yes, I'm that crazy dog lady). In Summer I take my dogs to the beach on the weekends and the park every afternoon after work for an hour or more as I find it important to not only exercise them but have them socialise with all types of dogs. As I have regularly for the last 5 years gone to the dog park, I know a lot of the regular people and their dogs at the dog park so I know the behaviour of dogs. I have a big yard (picture on my profile) for the dogs to run around in when I’m at work during the day they will have each other to entertain themselves till I take them to the park.
The dogs come inside the house when I’m home and if it’s hot I have the aircon for them (super spoilt). I have plenty of water for the dogs during the day as well as shade and toys for when I’m at work. I add ice in the morning on the hot days. If I am going to a dog friendly place, I always take the dogs with me. The dogs sleep inside at night. If you don’t want that I can leave them all out side as my dogs are used to both.
If you leave your dog/s with me they will be treated like kings/queens. Louie and Mowgli love new friends and don’t have any issues with other dogs staying here. I currently have one housemate who will be moving. At the end of the year after she graduates. She also volunteered at rspca so she loves dogs. She’s home during the day when im at work so they will let them in and check up on them if need be. I'm not at home during work hours (8-5) during the week days because I work fulltime however, I can ensure you your puppy will well looked after and exercised with the best company of my two dogs. I do have my parents and other family members a 5 minute drive away and I am a 15 minute drive away if anything is needed. I have lived at that house for 5 years with no problems. I also have a passion for taking photos and practising on my DSLR camera so I will have plenty of photos to share with you are you dogs stay. Please ask me any questions but your dog/s will be loved and well looked after until you return.
Thanks Jess for taking great care of Buffy and Storm. They had a ball!
Jess is awesome. Highly recommend her.
