About Tessa

Hello,

Welcome to my profile.

Due to being a Pet Carer for nearly 9 years now I have grown a loyal client base in Central London and Greenwich & look forward to growing that in my new home in Margate

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 have recently moved to the Margate area. I have been pet-caring now for 9 years and love every minute of it.

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. 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.

I am a small dog specialist and generally work on a one to one or one to two basis.

I do not accept bookings for large dogs as this is not my specialty and my experience has been grown with the Toy Dog Breeds.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my profile.

Tessa had my little Yorkie Poo for 4 nights for the first time and I have nothing but praise for her.

She is very friendly, conscientious and obviously knowledgeable & experienced with dogs. She updated me every day with lovely photos and Roxie was thoroughly spoiled. She has come home one happy girl so I have happily booked Tessa again

We absolutely love Tess! She took such great care of our Cavalier King Charles and our Cavapoo this weekend when we visited London. Our Cavapoo is a nervous dog and he really takes his time trusting people but he took to Tess instantly…like he’s known her his whole life! This made our trip much more relaxing knowing he was in such great hands. We loved our daily updates and pictures, especially their day at the beach. If you’re thinking of using Tess you’ll be leaving your pooch with the best. My dogs already miss 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.
