Jess was available last minute to walk my difficult dog and was very gracious about it! Would definitely recommend.

After graduating from the University of Richmond in May, I have an open and flexible schedule that would be able to accommodate your dog’s needs. I have lived with and cared for all kinds of pets and my family currently fosters puppies, giving me extra experience with little ones. I have experience taking care of all ages of dogs, and have a soft spot for older dogs. In addition to dogs, I’m comfortable ...

What Jess would like to know about your dog

The main things I'd like to know about your dog before I meet them would be the types of activities they enjoy(high energy or low energy), if they've been away from you for long periods of time and how they responded to that, and other things that I should expect when I watch them(do they have specific quirks or things that bother them?). I've dealt with a wide variety of dogs and believe there is something to love about each one. Particularly I love dogs with eyebrow markings (so cute!) and border collies (my family has always had them growing up).

When Jess watches your pet

Living in the Shockoe Bottom area (building access to the River Lofts!), I love taking dogs to the canal walk or Shiplock park for some time away from the busy streets. I'm also a big fan of dog parks and the communities there so if I stay with your dog and they like to go, expect me to take them! If your dog is more of a homebody I'm perfectly happy with cuddling them on the couch just like you would. Also, I really enjoy taking pictures of pets! My camera roll is full of animals, just waiting to add yours!
