Hello there, I am a single person living in the Covent Garden area. I have been pet-caring now for 5 years and love every minute of it.
I have a park 2 mins walk away and the Thames is 5 minutes away for dog walks
I know a garden would probably be preferable to some but i think i would prefer it if my Cat didn't go outside if someone was looking after it, particularly for a short period, and my location is very handy if you are city bound during the day. In an emergency, Royal College Hospital is a short drive to Camden. A parking space can also be arranged here for an added fee.
I have done numerous house/pet sitting jobs over the years and pride myself on my positive reviews & repeat clients.
I have worked in Covent Garden, Soho, Chelsea, Hyde Park, Hammersmith, Park Lane, Mayfair , Greenwich among others.
I have worked in considerably affluent homes looking after dogs and cats.
I would like to add that doing this work has brought me so much joy over the last few years.
I have moderate social anxiety that has prevented me from participating in things other people take for granted. But walking dogs has helped me find the courage to be outside everyday and given me pause to reflect on how precious life is. I get so much joy from seeing happy dogs and cats & in turn providing assurance to their parents that they are happy, safe, well cared for & appreciated.
Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for all the little furries, dogs and cats, that I have been lucky enough to look after.
Walk fee explained: I charge £15 for a half hour walk. This is due to being so central and through experience have found that 30 minutes city walking is ample. Particularly as a lot of my clients are small dogs and central can be busy and parks are small. An hour walk can be arranged for £20 as this largely involves travel to a main royal park or common.
I am happy to collect and drop off your pets within a reasonable distance.
If your location is some distance and your pet/pets need a car service this will be discussed upon booking and an additional charge added upon completion.
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my profile.
What an absolutely amazing dog sitter! My husband and I recently relocated to the UK from the USA, and we were quite nervous in our search to find a dog sitter for our little Stella. Luckily, we hit the jackpot when we found Tessa. We travel quite a bit for work, and now we feel completely at ease knowing Stella has a wonderful home to stay at when away. Tessa recently watched our little puppy for five days while we were in Paris. Throughout our trip, Tessa sent updates and pictures, and it was completely evident that Stella was having an absolutely fabulous time! Stella had daily trips to the park, was eating out at restaurants, play time / walks with other dogs: truly it was a holiday for our little Stella!
I have always had animals. I grew up in a menagerie of sorts. Always 2 Alsatian dogs, cats, owls, chinchillas, lizards, ducks..actually there wasnt alot we didnt have at one time or another as my parents were animals lovers and us kids were always adopting things.
I lived in the country fo a while. Raised my son there. We had a German Shepard and 3 Cats over those 12 odd years. I do miss having a pet very much, and regularly visit my mum who has a dog and 2 cats, and my brother who also has a cat.
