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 and I always enjoy a challenge.

I enjoy 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 is a very reliably person with a great touch for shy dogs. Unfortunately my dog is one of the shy once. Tessa was be able to connect to my dog very quickly and am very glad with Tessas handling of the dog too. Am very happy with everything....Thank you so much Tessa
