Tess with pet clients Grace, Rex and JoJo

I’m Tess Ross, the owner and founder of The Pet Nanny & Dog Walker.

Before I started my business, I worked for several years as a Wildlife Technician and Supervisor for AARK Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center in Newtown, PA. I also worked for over three years as a Veterinary Technician at the Cat Care Center in Morrisville, PA. I have been involved with animals all of my life, volunteering at local animal shelters and various cat rescues since I was 18.

I have studied feline behavior and psychology and I’m always just a phone call away if my clients have any questions about their cats. I love to chat about kitties and I am happy to make recommendations if a pet parent is having a behavior issue with their cat. I also have a keen interest in parrot behavior and understand the very specific needs of birds. It is not unusual for me to prepare meals in a client’s home for their parrot upon request!

I share my home with an African Grey, four cats and three senior rescue dogs. When I am not out on visits you will usually find me spending time at home with my pet family.

Jana and Boomer

Jana lives in Yardley with her husband, her dog Boomer and her cat Hunter. Jana is also a part time librarian. She is one of our pet sitters and used to be one of our clients before coming on board with us. Jana loves all animals and I call her the cat whisperer because even the shy cats love her!







Linda and Nobody


Linda lives in Fallsington with her husband, two children, her cat Nobody and two chinchillas. Linda is one of our dog walkers and also a pet sitter. Dogs love Linda and she is able to win the affection of some of our most timid dog clients.

Rick is Tess’s husband and he joined The Pet Nanny the summer of 2016. He is a full time dog walker, pet sitter and also an overnight sitter. He left the world of retail management to help with the growing business and couldn’t be happier.
