About Tessa

Hi, my name's Tessa and I’ll just tell you a bit about myself.

I grew up on a lifestyle block with a lot of dogs,, there were eight at one point, all of them different breeds. We also had sheep, chickens, cats and I had two pet rats as well. Since I was always the most patient one, it was my job to train the dogs their basic commands and keep up with it. I still do even now when I go to visit.

Now my partner and I have the most lovey-dovey cat, and even though he doesn’t listen like a dog, we love him anyway. I am a big animal lover, and I love pet sitting. I especially get along with dogs since I grew up with so many. As I mentioned earlier, I am a very patient person and I enjoy looking after animals so much, I always enjoy a challenge.

I like walking dogs, I consider it to be a bonus that I get some exercise in. I can do one to two hour walks. I have had a lot of experience with very big dogs that have a lot of muscle packed behind them. I hope you will consider me as your next pet sitter, and feel free to ask me about anything else you would like to know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Tessa looked after our 2 year old GSD for 3 nights while we were out tramping. She was great with her communication and everything went smoothly. Our dog instantly liked her and we felt good about having her! Would definitely use her again :) Thanks Tessa!

Tessa visited my house while I was on holiday to feed and check on my rabbit. All went well, thank you!
