What we can help you with
Are you out all day and need somebody to walk your dog? Perhaps you need to be away on business, or have a last minute commitment which takes you away from home.
We can regularly walk your dog or provide cover for you if you’re out and need somebody reliable to take care of your pet. We can also arrange to walk your dog later on in the day if you’re not going to be back home in time.
Would you like to get a puppy but are out at work all day? We offer a daily half hour visit to play indoors and socialise outside with your puppy in their early weeks and months and clean up any accidents. Our aim is to help you develop your puppy into a well-adjusted, confident young dog. The hope is that by tiring out your puppy, your furniture will also stay intact but unfortunately we cannot guarantee this!
Do work commitments or a busy lifestyle mean that you’re too busy to get home to walk and give your four-legged friend a toilet break during the day?
If you are out for a few hours and do not want your dog to participate in a group walk, we offer a service where we will visit them, let them outside for a toilet break, make a fuss of them and refresh water bowls.
Are you going on holiday, having a day out or are away on business and do not want to rely upon your friends or family to feed your cats and small animals? Our pet feeding service means you can go away assured that your animals are in their home receiving their normal daily care and love.
We will pop in and feed your pets at their normal time, administer any medication, keep their cages clean and provide play and companionship. Other services included in the price, are opening and closing of curtains and blinds, turning lights on and off, collecting post, watering plants and checking house security.
If you require holiday or longer term sitting and don’t like the thought of your dogs or cats boarding away from home, we will live in your house and look after all your pet’s needs whilst you are away. This is a great alternative to kennels and catteries as your pet will feel secure in familiar surroundings and their routine will not be disturbed. Included as part of the service:
- Dogs will receive a minimum of one walk per day plus play time
- Loads of attention and fuss
- Provision of food and water
- Litter tray, aquariums and cages kept clean
- You can even organise pre-arranged trades people to do work while you’re away and get your groceries delivered to your house before your arrival home.
If you require this service it is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment. To ensure your pet is comfortable with our companionship we will meet your pet before the sitting commences.
Before taking up any service we will pop round to meet you and your pet. This will help us obtain important information about your dog and complete the required paperwork.
We insist that all dogs are vaccinated. A separate kennel cough vaccination is also recommended (available from your vets) as dogs who exercise together are at risk of catching it from each other. We are unable to walk bitches in season and dogs that are aggressive to other dogs or people.
For dogs that prefer to be walked individually a one to one service is available.
Walking in a group of up to 5 sociable dogs, lasting one hour £12
Walking solo/dogs from the same household, lasting one hour £15
Daily rate, including exercising £35
* For weekly bookings a £30 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your place and money to be paid in full two weeks prior to your booking.
Puppy Visits and Pet Feeding
Per visit £8
We can offer as individual and bespoke service as you like, give me a call to find out how we can help.
Our Clients’ feedback…
Alan has a clear love of dogs and this passion comes across in his work. I have found that group walks are a very important part of keeping my two happy and healthy, they get to socialise and have new experiences. Alan keeps us well informed about any changes and is flexible when needed as well. Would 100% recommend even if it is to just give your pooch a new experience and socialising."
Alan is excellent with all of the animals – very patient with our wimpy elderly cat, sitting by her whilst she eats and happy to give pills to another of our cats who has recently been diagnosed with a heart condition. I would highly recommend his services."
I know too from my walks with him of his love of dogs and how much enjoyment he gets from walking with and caring for other people's dogs."
