About Jessika

Me: I'm Jessika, 32, been in London for around 5 years. I love helping tutors have peace of mind when going away on holidays, while I take good care of their furry friends.

My house: I live in a 1-bedroom flat with my dog  - a little Brazilian rescue, mixed breed, around 4kg. She's extremely friendly and loves getting cuddles and playing tug. I don't have access to a garden but there is a park less than 2min from mine, where I take Meg for a short walk every morning (around 10min), and Hampstead Heath is only 20min away, so we usually go for a long walk (around 1h30) over the weekend (when the British weather allows, of course). This means that I'm only able to board dogs that are fully house-trained and okay around other dogs. If you have small dogs (up to 8kg) I can board up to 2, but if your dog is bigger than that I am only able to board one at a time, and I cannot board any dogs over 25kg unfortunately.

My routine: I have a flexible hybrid work scheme, so decide how often and when to go to the office. This means I can work from home when boarding dogs, meaning I will not be away for more than one hour at a time (just enough time for me to go to the gym or run to the shop). If necessary, 24/7 supervision can be arranged.

What I can offer: I’m happy to administer oral medication to pets and clean wounds/scars if they are not usually reactive about it. I usually clean their paws after coming back from a walk, especially if it’s raining or muddy outside, and if your pup stays with me for more than a week I’m happy to give them a bath.

Dog walks and check-ins: If you leave within 30min (public transport) from Archway station, I can offer up to two dog walks or check-ins per day, but anywhere further than that will limit to one per day. 

House sitting: Ideally, I would bring my dog Meg with me, but alternative arrangements can be discussed if necessary.

My previous experience with dogs: I got my first dog when I was 14yo, after pestering my parents for a few years. Luli was a miniature schnauzer and she lived a happy life with me and my family for a little over 10 years, despite her grumpiness and dislike for most human beings outside of the family. She had a recurring skin condition which I treated as instructed by the vet, and she had to go into surgery four times over the course of her life (kidney stones, a condition very common among schnauzers), and I was her sole caretaker during recovery all times, administrating oral medication and cleaning the incision. After losing Luli, I continued taking care of friends' dogs for a couple of years – partly to help them when needed, partly to scratch that “I miss having a dog around” itch. That was until 5 years ago when I got a text from my sister-in-law saying someone found puppies behind a dumpster near hers but the mum was nowhere to be found. Meg was the last one there and I adopted her that same day - the best decision of my life.

Jessika was a great host for River, as was her lovely little rescue Meg. River settled in very quickly and made himself at home. Communication was great with regular updates on how River was getting on. I would highly recommend Jessika as a carer for your valuable fur baby!

Jessika is an amazing pet sitter. Really friendly, helpful and practical. Loved how she sent us little photos of how our little cats were doing as well as playing with them. 5 stars
