About Jessica

Thanks for considering a dedicated petsitter for your fur family. The special attention that your pet will receive with a responsible petsitter can't be over-valued: they will have a mini "me time" holiday whilst you're away!

With me as their petsitter, your pet will enjoy lots of attention, love, fun, and most importantly be responsibly cared for.

I enjoy dog-walking in rain or shine (& snow!), genuinely love animals, and am passionate about their well-being.

Broad experience as a pet & house-sitter for all sorts of beings: guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, chinchillas, rats, dogs, cats, snakes, and garden chooks! I'm a supreme player of silly games with balls and string, and the odd sock! :D Throughout my life I've lived with dogs and cats, and miss having a pet of my own.

Reviews & references available:

- Administering medication to cats, dogs, guinea pigs, (oral, topical, eyes, etc.);

- Caring for dogs and cats after surgery, during bouts of illness, vet trips, and clean-up!

- Brushing/de-matting/bathing your pets as needed.

Offering: House-sitting: For any and all pets, ensuring your house is tidy & secure. Includes: collecting post, taking out bins, in addition to spending quality time with your pets and sending some photos of your pets.

Dog walks: *Discount offered when booked with a "House Sit"*

-standalone booking: minimum booking period 30 mins - up to 2 hours depending on your pets' needs and your budget.

Available: week-day evenings & full weekends. I work full-time M-F, from home & in the city. *police check is required by my employer*.

Location: 3078 + surrounds.

For multiple-night bookings I'm able to consider further afield on a case-by-case basis (incl. Malvern, Toorak, Windsor Pascoe Vale, Ascot Vale, Ivanhoe, Brunswick, Coburg, Essendon, Greensborough etc.).

Covid-19: Following increased hygiene practices, and offering free dogwalks to those nearby who are unwell/under strict isolation. Motivated to support my local community, I enjoy meeting like-minded people, and providing comfort and mental stimulation to pets. A volunteer with "Seeing Eye Dogs Australia", I also donate to a number of animal-related charities through the year.Please drop me a line if you have any questions or requests - and we can determine which Services would best meet your pets' needs, and plan a Meet & Greet!

:-) Thank you (-:

Jessica was absolutely amazing. Her care for my 20-week old puppy was second-to-none. She went above and beyond to accommodate all of his needs and my requests. She kept up with his routine diligently and even was able to progress some of his training. Jessica sent me regular updates, including 40 photos over 4 days (just the right amount) and kept a video log of all of the techniques and methods she was using. When the puppies' mum came back early, she effectively communicated the previous 4 days events to her to ensure the dog's routine was not interrupted and transitioned seamlessly to a second career. Jess made herself available to take the dog to the vet on short notice despite having work commitments. I would highly recommend Jess and have already enquired about booking her a second time.

Jessica was a gem!!! So happy I found her. We bonded straight away and so did her and my two Staffies. I went away confident by babies were in great hands and going to be spoiled rotten by Jess. I wasn’t disappointed. Jess was great with them. Sending regular photos and communications. I’d highly recommend her services.

Specific Skills

I speak English & German
+20 years of experience

Specifically I'm responsible and caring for all animals:

  • I respect the guidelines given by the pet owners (such as amount of exercise their pet needs or can manage, medications and food or treat allowances, their interactions with other animals or humans).
  • Bathe and brush/de-matt fur when muddy from walks or other.
  • I have an interest in dog training technique, but no professional skills beyond practicing good dog obedience, and reading and research.
