PET SITTING

Pet Sitting & House Sitting

Is your pet recently recovering from an operation and you’re going back to work or are you planning an enjoyable evening out? Does your pet show separation related disorders when left alone? If so our hourly pet sitting service can help care for your pets.

Are you going away on holiday or have you been called away in an emergency? Our house and pet sitting service involves the pet sitter staying in your home and caring for your pet overnight. Our house and pet sitting service provides peace of mind that your house is secure in your absence too.  Feedback from clients is that their pet is happier in their home environment. We believe it’s a much more comfortable and stress free alternative to the different sights of other animals and people, and the sounds and smells of a kennel or a cattery visit or dog boarding service. We provide a personalised service and follow your pet’s routine while you’re away – a nice chew before bed and making sure they’re wrapped up in a blanket while their snoozing on the sofa – please just let us know what you do for your pet and we will follow suit! We will send you updates and photos and videos of your pet while you’re away, or call you to let you know how they are.

Your keys are kept separate from your address details to comply with the data protection act and are placed in a locked device.

We don’t wear uniforms or drive in marked cars so the fact you’re away from home is not advertised.

We’re often available at short notice, late night and on bank holidays.
