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, & cuddles, have fun, and most importantly be responsibly cared for.

I love dog-walking in rain or shine (& snow!) and genuinely love animals and am passionate about their wellbeing. I miss having my own pet (my housemate is allergic!), and throughout my life have lived with large and small dogs, and cats too!

I have broad experience as a pet & house-sitter for all sorts of creatures: guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, chinchillas, rats, dogs, cats, Australian snakes, fish, & backyard 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! My overall wellbeing is topped up in the company of animals!

A Seeing Eye Dogs Australia volunteer, I also donate to a number of animal related charities through the year.

Experience in (and 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 can collect your post, take out the bins, and ensure your home is secure and well looked after, in addition to spending quality time with your pets (dog walks included).

Availability: 3078 and surrounds: Full licence but no car at present.

Typically weekday evenings & full weekends.

I have a full-time office job - working from home (police check required by employer).

Serving clients close to Public Transport so I can make the most of the time with your pets (Fairfield, Alphington, Ivanhoe, 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, Brunswick, Coburg, etc).

October 2020 - Presently Working From Home full-time.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic I am 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 (-:

House Sitting
Gary, 2020-07-09

Jessica was quite simply the best house and pet sitter we've ever had. Our two dogs and cat were so well looked after - the dogs had lots of great outdoor adventures and the cat has never had so much attention! We were very confident that our furry friends were getting the best loving care and received lots of photos every day. Thanks so much Jessica - you really are the gold standard in pet sitting and our pets can't wait to see you again!

Jessica looked after my two elderly dogs who are both deaf and blind so require special care. I always worry when I have to leave them, but from day one, Jessica put me at ease with updates and amazing photos so I knew the dogs were happy, healthy and in great hands.

I couldn’t recommend Jessica enough for any pet sitting, I know I’ll be using her again.

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.
