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 get lots of attention, love, have 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. Throughout my life I've lived with dogs and cats, and miss having a pet of my own.
Broad experience as a pet & house-sitter for all sorts of creatures: guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, chinchillas, rats, dogs, cats, scaly pets, and feathered chooks! I'm a supreme player of silly games with balls and string, and the odd sock! :D
Motivated to support my local community, I enjoy meeting like-minded people, and exercising with and providing mental stimulation to pets. A volunteer with "Seeing Eye Dogs Australia", I also donate to a number of animal-related charities through the year.
Experience in (references available):
- Administering medication to cats, dogs, guinea pigs, (oral, topical, eyes, etc.);
- Caring for dogs and cats after surgery;
- Brushing/de-matting/bathing your pets as needed.
Dog walks: minimum booking period 30 mins via Pawshake - up to 2 hours depending on your pets' needs and your budget.
I will ensure your house is safe, tidy, and 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 included for house-sitting).
Availability: 3078 and surrounds. Full licence but no car at present.
Typically week-day evenings & full weekends.
I have a full-time office job - working from home *police check is required by my employer*.
Serving clients close to Public Transport means I can make the most of the time with your pets (Fairfield, Alphington, Northcote, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Preston etc.)
For multiple-night bookings I'm able to consider further afield on a case-by-case basis (incl. Reservoir, Pascoe Vale, Ascot Vale, Kew, Heidelberg, Ivanhoe, Brunswick, Coburg, etc).
Until Feb 2021 Working from home full-time.
Covid-19 pandemic: Following increased hygiene practices, and offering free dogwalks to those nearby who are unwell/under strict isolation.
Please drop me a line if you have any questions or requests - and we can determine what booking request would best meet your needs, and plan a Meet & Greet!
:-) Thank you (-:
Amazing once again!
Jessica did a wonderful job looking after my dog and cat whilst we enjoyed a long weekend away, receiving great updates and photos too!
It’s very difficult to find a pet sitter who will care for both cat and dog with equally great love and attention, you might even say they were spoilt!
All in all it’s a blessing to return to a clean home with pets who are happy and well.
I would highly recommend Jessica, her dedication and passion for animals is infectious. It’s lovely to think the animals are getting a little holiday of their own as well.
Specifically I'm responsible and caring for all animals:
