THROUGH JAN-MAR 2020 I'm donating at least 50% of pet-sitting fees to the bushfire crisis.
Thanks for considering a pet sitter for your fur family! The dedicated 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!
For more pet photos and to keep up with me visit me on Instagram @playtime_paws.
I have broad experience as a pet & house-sitter for local clients, and friends & colleagues': guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, chinchillas, rats, dogs, cats, & Chooks! I'm a supreme player of silly games with balls and string, and the odd sock! :D
With me, your friend will get lots of attention & cuddles, have fun, and most importantly be responsibly cared for.
I love dog-walking in rain or shine (& snow!). Having grown up with large dogs in the UK, and since moving to Melbourne have lived with 2 cats and 4 dogs over the last 13 years!
Motivated to support my local community, meeting like-minded people, as well as the fact that walking your dog gives me more exercise too! Generally my overall well-being is topped up in the company of feathered or furry beings! A Seeing Eye Dogs Australia volunteer, I also donate to a number of animal related charities through the year.
administering medication to cats and dogs (oral, topical, eyes, etc.),
caring for dogs and cats after surgery,
Brushing/de-matting/bathing your pets as needed.
Dog walking: minimum 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.
I work full-time in the city, and had a police check to join my employer: I'm available weekdays after 5pm, and full weekends.
Full clean driving licence for 23 years, but no car at present:
Serving clients close to Public Transport within a reasonable travel-time so I can make the most of the time with your pets (Brunswick, Coburg, Collingwood, Fairfield, Fitzroy, Ivanhoe, Northcote, Preston, Pascoe Vale etc.),
For multiple-night house-sitting bookings I'm happy to consider further afield on a case-by-case basis.
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 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.
Jessica looked after our dog Pepi so well. She played with her, took her for long walks and even gave her a bath. She looked after our home and left it immaculately clean. She communicated and updated regularly, leaving us at ease that all was good at home and we were able to enjoy our time away. She stayed with Pepi until we returned home and it was clear that Pepi had a great time and really loved Jessica. I would highly recommend Jessica and will defiantly be calling on her to sit for us again.
Specifically I'm responsible and caring for all animals:
