About Jess
As a dog mum myself, I know how important it is to trust the person who is caring for your dog, so I thought I’d tell you a bit about me.

I have spent most of my professional career (10 years roughly) working as a project manager on commercial events and cultural projects such as The London Design Festival, Melbourne Fashion Week and Sydney Contemporary Art Fair. Like many others, I was made redundant due to covid in July. I saw this as a great opportunity to pivot in a new direction, step away from office life and spend more time in nature with dogs!

If you know me, you understand how passionate I am about about dogs - which can be a little annoying for friends, as I have to pat every dog that walks past me!
I grew up with varying breeds of dogs, from Rottweilers to German Shepard’s and even a little Pomeranian named Benny!

Earlier this year, around the beginning of lockdown in Victoria, my adult doggo dreams were realised when I bought a Rottweiler puppy, meet Nalu. She just wants to play with everyone (dogs and humans) and be loved by everyone, any sign of aggression, and Nalu will /roll on her back and offer submission.

I am offering dog walks, dog sitting and overnight stays both in your home and in mine!

If you trust me with your furry friend, I can assure you they will be in very loving and caring (but also fun!) hands.

I hope to meet you and your dog soon!

Jess is direct and also kind. With dogs, I think this is the best way as they need structure and also empathy. Jess has both and she has great intuition to how to nurture and care for them. I have no worries when I leave our little pooch with her. My pooch comes back happy and tired - which is what mummy wants.

Hutt and Hound are Norberts favourite dog-baby sitters. For a big boy (half dane half mastiff), he is needy and anxious and needs constant reassurance, love and affection when my partner and I aren't around. He gets that in abundance with Jess and team! He has had many an overnight stay and walks with them and always comes back to us calmer and more importantly tired from all the fun things they do together! We've been through many different walkers that had trouble with Norberts boisterous nature, finding Jess was such a relief! 100% recommend this lovely lady with the dog whispering abilities.
