Tess with pet clients Grace, Rex and JoJo

Tess Ross is the owner and founder of The Pet Nanny & Dog Walker.

Before she started this business, Tess worked for several years as a Wildlife Technician and Supervisor for AARK Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center in Newtown, PA. Previously she worked for as a Veterinary Technician at the Cat Care Center in Morrisville, PA. Having been involved with animals all of her life, she volunteered at local animal shelters and various cat rescues since she was in her teens.

Tess has studied feline behavior  and enjoys chatting with clients about their cats and any issues they might be having. She’s happy to make recommendations if a pet parent is having a particular issue with their cat. Also having a keen interest in parrot behavior, Tess understands the very specific needs of birds. It is not unusual for her to prepare meals in a client’s home for their parrot upon request.

Tess shares her home with an African Grey, four rescued cats and a senior blind cockapoo. When she’s not caring for client’s pets you will usually find her spending time at home with her own pet family.

Just recently Tess became a PSI Certified Professional Pet Sitter, a certification to support professionalism and high standards in the pet care industry.
