I love all animals great and small! I have a rescued 5lb toy rat terrier but before her my pup was a 90lb American Bulldog. I've also owned fish, turtles, bunnies, an iguana and have lived with and cared for a lovely cat and various birds. I have a combined experience of 10+ years working as a vet assistant + as a dog handler at a local Chicago training/ daycare facility which specializes in difficult to handle dogs + dog sitting/ walking for friends and family. I also have experience caring for backyard chickens. I love walking + running, am experienced at feeding + administering medication and am available for other related tasks. I understand the peace of mind that comes with leaving our furry, feathery or scaley loved ones in the hands of experienced, safe, reliable, and loving hands and I'm proud to provide that type of care.

Where do I begin? I've known Jess for over 10 years and have hired her on multiple occasions. I had a 135 lb male mastiff named Bishop who I couldn't trust many people with. He was a great dog, however he was big and would test people to see if they were a pushover or a leader. Jess passed his tests because she is calm, patient, and understands animal behavior. I was really impressed with her ability to communicate leadership to him in such a gentle yet firm manner. It wasn't long before Jess became one of Bishop's favorite people! I've also hired Jess to take care of my 50+ plants and apartment. She did an incredible job and followed instructions beautifully! Lastly, I have had Jess help me figure out how to make living spaces more organized, functional, as well as help me understand how to mix and match colors, patterns, and textures to get a certain look. I highly recommend Jess to care for your pets and home! She is a kind, intuitive, creative, and resourceful gem!
