I would give more stars if I could! Tessa was amazing. She house sat and minded our dog Barney in our home and I have come to a happy pup and a cleaner house than I left it!! Barney was happy and content the whole time. I received updates throughout the week I was away which was great. Tessa was very easy and friendly to deal with which made me feel extremely comfortable. I highly recommend Tessa's services, thank you so much for everything :) we will definitely be seeing you again soon...Barney will miss you!!

Tess looked after our 2 elderly cats while we were overseas for 3 weeks. She didn't over feed which was great (as it's been a problem with other pet sitters) and kept the litter clean. They sleep with her at night as well. :o) Over all the cats were well looked after. The house was also super clean when we got home as well! I would definitely use Tess again. :o)
