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 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.

Offering:

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

House-sitting:

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 (-:

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.

Skills

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.
