Tess was great, I needed to find someone to watch my dog who can be kind of difficulty on short notice. Tess was very responsive and go back to me right away. After meeting with a couple candidates I decided Tess was the best fit and I didn't go wrong. Tess stayed over night with our pup and sent updates and pictures as requested. She took care of our home while we away as if ...

After our initial meet and greet, my dogs absolutely loved Tess! She listened to every detail and concern. Kept the pups very happy and kept the place very clean. I am definitely going to have her watch them again!

Experienced, and I work from home!

I have 12 years of experience staying in people's homes, taking care of their cats and dogs, plus I have had dogs my whole life. I love animals so much and hope I can look after your furry friends! You can trust me to be honest, affectionate, and always in contact.

I have traveled to 10 countries solely by my petsitting business and made cat and dog friends who made the experience so special. I ...

What Tess would like to know about your dog

I of course I ask things like: does the dog take medicine or have special needs? Is there anything special you are trying to train that you want me to practice with him/her? How does he/she get along with other dogs, cats, or children? Do you have a special walk you always go on?
Also, if we meet for a meet and greet, I would ask questions specifically on the dog I see. Maybe I will notice something about the dog that will cause me to ask a question.
I don't have any breed preferences nor am I against breeds. I love pitbulls for example and am sad there is a stigma against them! I recently moved and at the moment I don't have my frenchie with me, so I must admit I enjoy seeing frenchies who remind me of my dog (he is staying with "grandma" now). But I love each and every dog I take care of equally because they are each special.
