Hi there! My name is Jessica - I'm a final year medical student and a huge animal lover. I have grown up on a lifestyle block surrounded by a huge diversity of different animals including the likes of dogs, cats, cockatoos, sheep, cows, pigs, ducks, chinchillas, rabbits, horses, chickens, turtles, frogs, goats... the lot! Now having moved away from our family home and pets to Tauranga for my placement at the Hospital I am greatly missing the joy of being around pets, and so what better way to solve this than to do it as a job!
Growing up I have constantly had my three best friends by my side - a german shepherd, a rottweiler and a dachshund. An interesting mix, but this experience I believe has made me competent and comfortable in being around and caring for a range of animals. I would love nothing more to be able to pass on the love I have for animals to your own pets!
As well as my vast experience with animals at home, I also spent time both working and volunteering at Animates in Silverdale - which I thoroughly enjoyed and which also taught me valuable skills in the care for a variety of animals. I have also worked at a cattery which my grandmother owned and so I think I have a plentiful amount of both experience and love for caring for animals.
I am very flexible in my services including dog walking, home visits, and pet sitting around the Bay of Plenty area. Depending on what suits you and your pets I can do a 30 minute walk twice a day or else a single one hour walk - it really depends on what suits you! I have vast experience walking and caring for pets of all sizes. With regards to house sitting and 24 hour pet care, I can tailor this to what suits you as well - whether this means 24 hour supervision, or popping in several times a day to check on things. Let me know what suits! I can promise your pets will receive an excessive amount of care, love and attention, and you will also receive good communication and up dates on how things are going!
Look forward to meeting you and your pets!
We were very happy with Jessica. Communication prior to house sitting was good and we came home to happy cats and a tidy house. Would recommend to others.
Jessica was a pleasure to deal with and was genuinely interested in finding out about our puppy and two rabbits before she looked after them. After spending the weekend looking after our animals she called in during the week and our puppy was super excited to see her which was a great sign to us that they had developed a connection over the weekend. We will look forward to Jess looking after our animals again.
