About Gemma

Registered Pet Sitter & Dog Walker, Based in Hullbridge Essex

Animal lover of all creatures great and small.

Ex rat race London commuter and pet owner, so I understand the compromise of wanting to keep pets at home- but work, life, family and all manner of obligations keep you from them.

Experience has taught me that demanding and long hours call for a level of adaptability and flexibility not often found in most care functions. I have built my business on this level of care and understanding where your pet is put first, based on your changing needs

My aim is to be an extension of the owner, offering a tailored service to each client, mirroring habits, obedience commands, environment, safety and praise. Each session we undertake together would involve engagement, play, social stimulation, affection, cleaning up of mess, potty breaks, feed, change of water, medication administration where required, anything a pet parent would provide.

I hold the following, offering pet owners peace of mind:

Examples of care I provide;

  • Daycare at the home of the client, 2/4/6/8 or day/night stay which could include feed / walk / play / stimulation
  • Regular / ad hoc dog walking for 1 hour for adult dogs

  • Puppy check ins - 1/2/3 per day which can include feed, walk, play etc 30-60 mins
  • cat check ins, am and pm to incorporate feeding, change of water and litter, fussing and let in/out of home if applicable
  • 30-60 mins

  • Doggy check ins, 30-60 mins, let out play snd feed
  • small animal sitting / check ins
  • 30-60 mins A certified Pet sitting & Dog walking business

    Gemma is great, she gives me updates on her visits with pictures of my puppy enjoying himself. Gemma also has been really helpful in the puppy training and I value the work she is doing with my dog.
