About Tess

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pet-loving student at your service! I am eager to spend more time around animals, and to help you out while doing so. I am a pet owner myself, however, I am currently living far from home during my studies, so I miss the loving company of pets quite a lot while I am not home (although I do visit home as often as possible). I have been a pet owner my whole life (21 years), and have been the primary owner of my little one for about 6 1/2 years now. I grew up on a farm with a variety of animals, which I helped to raise and care for.
I have a burning passion for helping animals and I feel a deep compassion for them! I want animals to feel loved and cared for, just as every living creature deserves and desires most.
I am a full-time student attend classes 3 days a week. I am available before/between/after my class hours throughout the week, as well as on weekends.
I love pets of all kinds, sizes, breeds or ages. I am a clean and neat person who respects the different lifestyles of others, and I would be sure to respect any specific rules or restrictions required for yours and your pet's best health and interests. In my care, your pets will receive full attention. My priority is that your pet feels loved and happy and as comfortable as possible. If requested to walk your furry friend, I will assure that they get the exercise they need under safe supervision.
I am easy-going, high-spirited, compassionate and reliable. I believe that the best kinds of people own pets, and that everyone needs a little help every now and then with providing the best care possible for their loved ones without worries. I can be that easy source of help that you need!

My work involves my being away from home overnight up to 10 times a month. Tess was always very reliable and took excellent care of my cat in my absence. I could go to work feeling good knowing Tess would be there....extra time for belly rubs and ear scratches were greatly appreciated.
I would, without hesitation recommend Tess as a reliable and trustworthy pet sitter.

Tess was repeatedly able to house sit at our home with a hobby farm. Pot belly pigs, a goat, ducks, rabbits, two dogs and two cats. Not a problem for this pet lover.

Tess was able to help with walking my dog during a recent vacation, by getting him out for a walk everyday around lunch time to break up his stay at home. My roommate was home during the week, but couldn't get home to let my dog out during the day, so this is where we needed Tess. There was a few surprises during the first two days of the trip as our roommate let us know that Tess had just returned from the walk around 5/6pm when my roommate got home. Tess has mentioned that this was because of a scheduling conflict and she didn't let me know ahead of time. She apologized and was able to walk my dog around lunch time for the rest of the week, as discussed.
Tess was great! She took great care of our pups and provided prompt responses when we got in touch with our change in travel plans.
Tess did a great job of looking after our pet.
