Hello my name is Jess. I adore animals of all kinds so I am lucky enough to be working full time as a pet carer and dog walker (I am living my dream right now!).
I have also previously devoted my time to volunteering at two fantastic animal welfare charities in Surrey (Wildlife Aid and Mane Chance Sanctuary)…an amazing experience that I would highly recommend.
I am a friendly and reliable person you can trust (DBS certified and Canine first aid qualified) to care for your pet in the same way that I would my own. I love taking the time to get to know the personality quirks of each animal so that I can tailor my care to match their needs. With me, your pet will receive plenty of love, care and attention so you can enjoy your time away in the knowledge that your pet is happy and safe. I know that leaving your pet can be a nerve-wracking experience (they are a huge part of your family after all!) so I am always happy to answer any questions you may have or spend a little more time getting to know you before I look after your pet.
Before taking any bookings I like to conduct a meet and greet so that we can all get to know each other (animals included!). During this time, I like to take down lots of notes so that I know exactly what your pet does and does not like and their typical behaviour traits. No detail is too small.
At the moment the services I offer on Pawshake are:
- drop in visits to your home to spend some time with your pet i.e. cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, hamsters, fish, birds. Whilst at your home I can undertake feeding, cleaning litter trays/cages, playing, generally offering some TLC! In addition to any other small tasks you would like me to do whilst I am there e.g. open/close curtains, put bins out and water plants
- puppy and kitten care during the day. If you have a new addition to the family and are worried about leaving them too long whilst you are at work I can help you! I can visit them in your home, spend time with them playing/feeding/cleaning up.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, I look forward to hearing more about your pet(s) and how I can help you. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.
Coronavirus update: I have changed the way I work a little to ensure that everyone stays safe. I am now undertaking meet and greets in gardens or virtually and I am maintaining social distancing for dog pick up and drop offs. I will discuss best way to proceed with you so that we are both happy with the set up.
Our kitten loved Jess from the first sight:)
Jess was professional, prompt and friendly.
I would highly recommend her!
We are so thrilled we chose Jess to look after our cats whilst we were away. She was thorough, caring and communicative throughout, and it was all round a completely reassuring experience! We will absolutely be using her again.
