Hi I'm Jess, I'm currently living in my van, based in and around Exeter and East Devon.
I work part time in several private gardens, do lots of pet sitting and dog walking for friends and have a keen interest in foraging for wild food, Wild swimming, cooking/eating delicious vegan food and exploring the South West in all of its natural beauty.
I have plenty of experience walking and spending time with dogs, especially some who can be have issues with other dogs and animals or are elderly or still in training. I feel I am great at reading a dog's body language and forming a trusting friendship with them in order to explore the outdoors in a way that benefits both of us and makes the most of the wonderful companionship that comes with walking together. I have a car and know plenty of walks around East Devon, Exeter and Dartmoor and enjoy exploring in most weather.
I have also had the pleasure to know and care for many cats including, kittens, elderly and one with feline anxiety.
I also have extensive experince caring for Guinea-pigs and Chickens, some experience with Rabbits and Pigs and a general awareness of needs and affinity with most animals.
I get a lot of joy and peace out of caring for and spending time around animals and really enjoy having a walking companion, therefore I would like to offer flexiable Pet sits, Holiday stays, Extra help caring for your animals and enriching and fun walks for your dog.
As soon as I met Jess I knew I could trust her into my home to look after my cats while I was away. Jess does a great job at a very reasonable price and I would definitely book with Jess again in future if needed.
Jess was fantastic from start to finish and we'll definitely be booking her again. Great communication, regular updates and pictures throughout her stay and most importantly had an instant connection with Fred - we came back to a super happy dog. He's usually anxious with new people but took straight to her as soon as she came in and they had a lovely time together.
Knowelege and experience of Guinea-pig behavior, having rescued and fostered many Guinea-pigs.
