Hello - Im Jonna. I am a 29-year old girl from Finland. I have lived in London for 10 years. My main motivation for doing housesitting is because I love animals. I also love to travel and am location independent to some extend. I work and/or study a few hours from home everyday, so during a typical day I will stay at home for half the day and keep company your the animals. I like getting out and about and seeing new things, but also staying in with a book or netflix. I love pets who give me cuddles!
I am a teetotal vegetarian (trying to go vegan!). I am sporty and exercise daily, with a love for going for runs with dogs.
I have quite a lot of housesitting experience from other websites, and I have excellent references which I can provide in addition to the ones on this website. I cannot drive so please consider that when offering a house sit (I like cycling though!).
I work in England as a dog carer. Often the dogs come and stay at my house, but I also do house sitting. I have worked as a house sitter and dog carer since 2015. I will list my housesits so far to date here:
I am experienced with animals with special needs, disabilities and medications.
-March 2015, Hampstead, UK. Semi detached house, 4 dogs (one rescue) and 5 cats.
-June/July 2015 + March 2018, New York, USA. A Detached home with a rescue dog, cat, parrot and fish.
-March 2017, Lancaster Gate, London. Two Golden Retrievers.
-Various dates in 2016-2018, South Kensington, London, one epileptic dog. This is my regular sit.
-Various dates in 2017-2018, Ravescourt Park, London, one rescue dogs who still has a lot of behavioural issues and special needs. This is my regular sit.
-April 2017 + May 2018, Sloane Square, London, two small dogs with behavioural issues and strict routines. This is a regular job for me.

-May, 2018 Barnes, London. Two Snoodels.
-June 2018, Arsenal, dog and cat.
-July 2018, Chelsea, two Snoodels.
The biggest asset I bring to the table as a house sitter is my calm demeanour, level headedness, a natural connection with animals and reliable nature and a warm, caring heart. I bring a few years of experience with minding dogs so I have learned a lot about their behaviour, as every dog is different. I am good with rescues and sensitive animals.
I am also a qualified Reiki practitioner and would be happy to practise Reiki on your animals.
