About Tess

I am available for dog walking, dog sitting and visiting your house to check up on your pets if you are away on holiday (including cats.)
Depending on your schedule I may also be available for house sitting if you are away on holiday.
My skills include: dog walking, looking after dogs, cats, feeding horses, looking after chickens.
I am experienced in terms of house sitting for animals and dog walking. I can provide attentive care, loving attention and walks in local parks.
I am based in Dalston, East London and would prefer to take jobs which are in the boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets, but I'm willing to assess each situation as it arises :) Regarding the type of walk your dog likes to take we can discuss routes, games and whether you can take your dog off a lead etc and I am flexible regarding my hours so we can discuss how long your dog would need to go walking. If your dog needs to take medications etc. I am willing to learn about the skills required for this. I have experience with Pawshake looking after cats and at the moment in London I live with a rescued cat owned by my housemate.

I am passionate about animals and believe that they deserve to be treated kindly with respect and love and have volunteered at an orangutan rehabilitation centre in Indonesia (Orangutan Foundation International) and for a wildlife charity called Profauna.
I have done animal sitting in Australia which involved looking after one dog, two horses, five chickens and three guinea fowl for one month and for four months on a separate occasion I looked after the same animals on a Wwoofing style arrangement - I walked the dog most days.
In Galway in Ireland, I was invited to live with a friend for a few months in her spare room and I looked after her dogs, taking them for walks everyday which included two dogs and their five puppies.
I was also asked by this friend to animal-sit her dogs while she went on holiday to America for two weeks.
She also had two cats and I would feed and give attention to the cats as well.
In Australia, a friend of a friend asked me to dog-sit for the weekend which included dog walking.

In the past I have owned a kelpie dog on an island in West Papua which was inundated with stray dogs and so I often tried to feed the other strays.
I still think of her, love her and cherish my memories - I understand that a dog is a family member and that strong bonds can be formed and the importance of treating animals with love and respect.
My family have always kept dogs and cats - when I was a young child we had a dog called Sally and cats called Sophie and Bridget and more recently my mother adopted a dog from a rescue centre called Penny who I used to walk everyday when I lived at my parent's home.

Fab sitter. I feel my cat is really well cared for when she's looking after him.
