I'm a friendly, reliable 26-year-old female who's returned to study as of last year as a nurse. Being a student I am very flexible with plenty of free time during the week and weekend, and would love nothing more than to spend it caring for your best mate - I'm happy to offer dog sitting, walking and care both in the owner's home as well as my own.
I have worked part-time at a well-respected dog day care centre in Ellerslie since April 2018, where I look after dogs of all shapes, sizes, temperaments and personalities - from Labradors, Border Collies and Rottweilers to Pomeranians, French Bull Dogs and Griffons. I love to play with the dogs, keep them entertained and of course keep them clean and healthy.
My home is located in Greenlane, with a large fully-fenced backyard which backs on to Cornwall Park, and I also offer dog sitting at my mums house in Howick, which is also fully fenced (my childhood home). I live a fit and active lifestyle, so am more than happy to take your pooch for long walks/runs around local parks - minimum of 30 minute walk per day, with longer walks up to 1.5 hours for more active dogs. I'm also happy to work with you for any special requirements your dog may have - whether it's a careful diet, health issues or a 'special' personality.
I'm available to spend the majority of my day with your pet, only popping out for an hour or two at a time, so they will have almost constant company, and when I'm out they will be free to hang out in the large, fully fenced backyard. I live with five other young adults who all work full time, so I will be the sole carer of your pet, but they are all dog lovers and will be friendly and caring towards your dog when they are around. If staying over night your pet is able to sleep either inside in my bedroom, the lounge, or outside depending on what they're used to and most comfortable with. I don't have any bedding so it would be great if you could provide this for your pooch - also to ensure they feel comfortable with their familiar bedding!
I love all dogs and really look forward to meeting your furry friend - please don't hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions!
Jess has been a fantastic sitter for our puppy. She has been communicating with us regularly, sending photos and giving us updates through the day. Her home was clean and safe and our furbaby loved to explore her yard
Jess took such great care of our three year old rescue, mixed breed. She had our dog stay in her home. Jess was really easy to communicate with and came and picked up Winnie for us which was so helpful. She kept in touch and kept us up to date throughout the sit, letting us know how Winnie was. Our pup can be a bit anxious and sometimes doesn’t eat much if she is feeling anxious and Jess was really sweet giving her some extra food to make her interested in eating. Would highly recommend Jess to care for your dog, we hope she’ll be available for us in the future!
