About me

I have been a professional animal sitter and dog walker for the last 7 years whilst studying both my first undergraduate and now as a veterinary student. It sprung from volunteering at animal shelters where I was dog walking for the animals in care. I then made the move to dog walking and animal sitting for other people once I moved back to full-time study. I have a wide range of petsitting experience, from dogs and cats, to reptiles, birds and natives. I still volunteer at animal shelters a couple of times a week, but would love to be able to supplement this passion by earning some extra cash walking other peoples dogs when they don't have a chance to do it themselves. I have years of dog obedience and agility training, plus behavioural knowledge and I can give full references. I have walked everything from two 50kg Rhodesian ridgebacks to smaller, nervous dogs, so will be able to cater for any animals needs and any owners wants. I loo...

Jess is a huge animal lover and a vet student. She has 7 years of experience with dog walking and many successful Holidog assignments. Jess adores animals: she volunteers at shelters and veterinary practices and also does work with the RSPCA. She fosters possums, which she loves, although says it can be a bit hard to give them away at the end when they are rehabilitated. She isn't sure where her passion comes from, but it could be attributed to her all the Attenborough documentaries she has watched! Jess is able to dog walk and visit your home to look after your pet in your own home. She will definitely keep your up-to-date with pictures of your pet having fun! Holidog reccomends Jess! See less

Jess was just amazing at taking care of my cats and fishes, extremely thoughtful and detailed, kept me updated at every visit, helped kept my place tidy when the troublemakers mess it up and even took great pictures of them as well to ease my longing! Never once did I worried about the wellbeing of my pets and I would highly recommend Jess to anyone who needs a sitter. Would definitely seek her help in the future again when the need arises.

Our petsitting experience with Jess was perfect, and I recommend her without hesitation. She was a petsitter in our home with several different types of animals...a cranky old dog, a young active dog, and a demanding old cat. She gave us regular photo and text updates even though we didn't ask her to do so. It is obvious she is a lover of animals, and her manner is professional, attentive, and kind. We hope to use her again when the need arises. I'm sure our animals would be happy to see her again. See less

Jess was a delight, my dogs loved her and the house looked exactly as I had left it. As a uni student studying from home Jess was able to walk my dogs a couple of times a day which they absolutely loved. I would highly recommend Jess as a house/pet sitter and would invite her back to look after my house and dogs again. See less

Jess has a very professional and confident manner. She was very relaxed and confident with my pets and looked after them very well. I felt happy to leave them in her hands. She was very accessible and easy to contact and extremely obliging. I liked Jess very much and would recommend her to others as well as have her back to pet sit for me. See less

i would definitely recommend jess as a dog walker. i recently engaged jess to walk my 2.5 year old irish terrier (who can be quite a handful on the lead at times) and my 6 month old airedale terrier while my partner and i were on holidays (as the person who was caring for them was not able to walk them). jess was friendly, approachable and has experience with walking and caring for dogs, which made me feel confident and comfortable leaving my dogs in her control. jess was also happy to take the dogs to the nearby dog park, which was great as it meant the dogs could continue with their normal routine while we were away. i also really loved that jess sent me, at her own initiative, a couple of emails and a photo of the dogs while we were away, so i was able to stay 'up to date' on how the dogs were going (and both of the dogs looked very happy in the photo!). my dogs are my babies and i am always cautious about leaving them in someone else's care or under someone else's control, but i would not hesitate to engage jess again in the future. i would encourage anyone else to contact jess and have a chat to her if they are a bit nervous about leaving their dogs in someone else's care or control. her attitude, experience and genuine love of dogs is sure to put your mind at ease!

Hello - my name is Emma! I am currently working as a part time nanny and I am here from the United Kingdom. I have a lot of experience with animals as I was a veterinary nurse for 7 years.

I love pets. I had a number as a child. For several years now I haven't been able to have a pet. Many times I have lived in apartments where no pets are allowed. I looked after my sons cat for...
