About Tessa

Hello,

Welcome to my profile.

Due to being a Pet Carer for nearly 7 years now I have grown a loyal client base in Central London and Greenwich.

I currently have a waitlist for services.

I am always worth a try as I may have had a cancellation or a short availability for service but I felt I should update my profile accordingly instead of just blocking the calendar.

Please feel free to reach out if you would like a meet and greet and consideration for future services.

Have a wagtastic day!

Tess

And now the Bio :)

Hello there, I live in the Covent Garden area. I have been pet-caring now for 7 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.

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 rediscover the pleasure 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. Collection explained. 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.

Doggy Day Care
Camilla, 2021-09-10

Tessa is a fantastic dog sitter! Hazel quickly settled into Tessa’s place because Tessa is very experienced with looking after dogs. Tessa was very kind and caring towards Hazel and took her on several walks throughout the day. Hazel loved her time there and she can’t wait to return!

Dog Walking
Ivelisse, 2021-05-20

We are so happy to have found Tess. She’s so caring and patient with our puppy Vogue. We moved to London very recently and our puppy is very attached to us so we were looking for a Pet care taker that our dog felt comfortable going for walks with so she could start building up some confidence. Tess has been great!. Our dog loves her and feels save with her.

We definitely recommend her!

Can take care of exotic animals

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.
