My name is Jessie, and I am an animal lover who has plenty of past experience working with all sorts of animals! I have worked at dog daycares in the past for a total of 5 years. That work involved dog walking (private walks as well as group walks), boarding, medication administrating, feeding, and even driving the doggy shuttle bus. On top of my professional work through the dog daycares, I have been doing private dog and cat sitting/housesitting and dog walking for clients for the past ten years. For as long as I can remember, I had been the immediate go-to dog walker in my neighbourhood while growing up! I have continued this trend as I grew up, having now been referred to and worked for many family friends, friends of friends, and connections through my past work with the dog daycares. I've owned dogs and cats my entire life growing up - with dogs ranging in size from Great Danes to dachshunds! I feel comfortable with each and every breed and size, and have hard a large amount of experience with most breeds.
When I am able to, I spend a large chunk of my free time volunteering with different rescue organizations for cats and dogs as well. Unfortunately, due to my current living situation not allowing dogs in my home, I am unable to have dogs stay with me but am more than happy to house/dog/cat-sit at your home! I can accommodate any requests you may have, whether that be a specific area your dog favours walking in, staying longer than paid for just to give your dog or cat some company and getting used to my presence, or whatever the case may be.. I'm your girl!
I offer a variety of services such as dog walking, house visits, and dog and cat sitting/house sitting. Dog walks run for 30 minutes, although time can easily be added depending on how long of a walk your dog needs. House visits also run for 30 minutes, and the same goes there in terms of adding time. I'm happy to spend as much time with your companion as you need!
My availability for all of those options is very open on Saturday and Sunday's as I do not work those days anywhere else, and on weekdays my availability fluctuates a bit. I work split shifts, so am often available between 10 AM-1 PM on weekdays, as well as from 7 pm and onwards. In my current job, I often find myself with plenty of time off. Such as holidays, and summer breaks, which means in those times my availability will be much more open. Working with animals is something I am incredibly passionate about, and I hope to meet, walk, and cuddle your wonderful companion sometime soon! :)
Due to Covid, I am currently off work and my availbility is much more open than usual. Weekdays are generally free, as well as most weekends. :)
We booked Jessie after our regular sitter was unavailable. She was easy to talk to, attentive, and followed our instructions to a T. We were very happy with her and would happily book her again.
Jessie was great to work with right from the start. When I met her I knew she had a genuine interest and care for animals and would look after our 3 cats like they were her own. We got regular messages keeping us up to date while we were away. She hung out and played with our cats, even asking what their favourite toys were. My super shy cat even eventually came out to greet her when she was feeding. I would certainly look for Jessie again when we need our pets cared for.
