Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm a wildlife scientist and student of dog training. I'm also a native animal care volunteer at the RSPCA's wildlife rehabilitation centre.
I've had a passion for animals my entire life and have kept a wide range of pets for over 25 years, including dogs of all sizes, birds, reptiles, rodents, and fish. I love all animals! Currently I have two greyhound crosses and a kelpie cross bull arab. Since 2015 I have been occasionally looking after other peoples' pets as an additional job. Meeting and spending time with new animal friends always makes my day! I am happy to do home visits, walking, water your plants, etc., and can look after smaller caged pets in my home. Any pet (or farm animal) of any size, no problem! With a current police check, references, and Pet First Aid & CPR training, you can rest assured that your pets (and home, if applicable) will be in safe and responsible hands with me. Mostly I work from home, so I have a fair bit of flexibility. Sometimes I go away for science-related work for a week or two on relatively short notice, so last-minute requests can work well for me if I know I'll be in town.
I'm happy to take your dog(s) to their favourite local places, or we can explore new walks - whatever you would like.
Currently I'm studying for a Certificate in Dog Behaviour and Training, so I can help with guidance on how to make you and your dog's lives easier and happier.
Jessica has done an amazing job looking after our fur babies for nearly a week . They were sooo calm and relaxed when we got home and I think disappointed that it wasn’t Jessica who returned home last night lol .
We left our King Charles cavalier with Jessica for 4 nights. We returned to a very relaxed and happy baby. And he had been brushed out so beautifully, thank you very much Jess, that was a treat!
We will certainly be asking Jess to look after Nacho again.
I have many years of experience working with animals ranging from dogs to penguins. I'm also studying for a formal qualification in dog training.
