About Jessica

About me: I'm a Canadian 26-year-old Ph.D. candidate at Otago. I moved here approximately 2 years ago, and have been thoroughly enjoying exploring Dunedin, the peninsula, and the surrounding area. Growing up, there were always animals around. My family was avidly into horses, dogs, cats, and were even forced to love the rabbit I brought home from university.

As an international student, I'm incapable of adopting a creature of my own, but I would love to dedicate time to taking care of yours! I'm active and love to go for long walks, but miss a companion to go with, so I would be a pleasure to take your dog out if you're pressed for time.

Services:

Happy to arrange for a midday dog walk for your furry friend stuck at home during the week, stop in for a short visit to give you peace of mind that they're alright, or house/pet sit if you're heading away for a while. My current apartment doesn't have a fenced yard, so any petsitting would have to be at yours. Being a student, my schedule is very flexible and can arrange for a half-hour, or full hour-long walk, up to twice a day. I can stop in to check on/feed cats, up to twice daily. If pet sitting, I would walk dogs twice daily for a minimum of half an hour. I have a vehicle, so happy to arrange at home pick-up and drop-offs, and take dogs to one of the amazing beaches around Dunedin for a wee outing!

I've recently passed a background check for the volunteering I do in Dunedin, and worked years in the Canadian Coast Guard; I'm trustworthy, dependable, and punctual! I'm flexible and happy to work around your schedule. I look forward to hearing from you and arranging pet care that suits you best!

Our donkeys were well cared for, clean and tidy and hay fetched to feed them. Excellent communication both days, reassuring us while we were away. Good job, Jessica! Thank you

Thanks so much for all your care and attention to our old boy Monty.

I think he's missing you already.
