About Essie

I'm a conservation biologist who is passionate about all kinds of critters! I love taking care of pets and will make sure they are as happy as larry while you're away. I have experience taking care of a wide variety of pets: puppies/dogs (large and small), cats/kittens, lizards, frogs, fish (marine and freshwater) and turtles. If you have any exotic pets I am your go to! I currently have a young dachshund puppy named Rory and I have a soft spot for sausage dogs!

During visits, I will make sure your pet gets plenty of cuddles/play time. I will also make sure everything is all okay with their food, water, kitty litter, etc. Feel free to let me know what your pet needs and I will do my best to make that happen. I can send you updates/photos/videos of your furbaby, so you never feel too far away.

I am also happy to meet up prior to taking care of your pet so we can get to know one another. Just let me know and we can find a time that suits you.

I work Monday-Friday as a conservation biologist, so I am available mornings, evenings and on the weekends. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting your furbabies!

Essie was great. Miffy was healthy and happy on our return. We will definitely go to Essie next time we are away.

Essie was great. Cat was more settled having regular feeding times and dog was happy. Recommend no problems. Thanks again Essie.
