This service is for clients with dogs and cats in particular but we do also care for smaller animals alongside them, which is particularly useful for people with multiple pets.
We created this option for people who would like a day, weekend, or a week or two away from home, whereas normally it has not always been possible before under one roof.
Either myself or Taff would live in your house overnight to look after your pets, allowing them all to remain in their usual home environment. Thereby avoiding the inevitable trauma of transporting them to the Kennels or Cattery.
The service is proving very popular, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
We cover most types of pets in this service, dogs, cats, hens, small animals and birds, even goats but for them we will need special instruction on their care.
Our usual routine is to leave your house at around 9.00am, after your dogs have been out for a comfort break. They will then according to compatibility, spend their mid day walk (which is included in price) with our other clients dogs, during our normal dog walking routine. This of course will help maintain their socialisation.
Additional walks may be arranged at standard dog walking fee. However, if for some reason we are unable to take them with us in the morning to join our normal dog walks, then we would, of course return at a suitable time for your pet to have a solo lunch time comfort break/walk as close to mid day as possible.
We aim to return to your house after our normal Pet Sitting and Dog walking routine is finished by approximately 5.30pm to 6.00pm. Your dogs could also have an early evening walk (at standard rate additional cost) and will of course have continual overnight care to 9.00am the following morning. The only exception being in the event of an emergency, then we would endeavour to return to your pet as soon as possible. Usual feeding times will be maintained and all other aspects of your pets care will be carried out to your instruction.
As with our other services your pets feeding bowls etc will be cleaned after every meal and cat trays regularly cleaned and emptied. The added benefit of having a pet / house sitter is that your property is not left unattended for long periods of time and things like the mail and milk are not left for all to see, advertising your absence.
We will require a 50% percent (Non Returnable) booking fee at the time of our consultation visit. Cancellations must be made at least two weeks before your expected travel dates.
We provide our own meals and we do not surprise you with any other hidden expenses. In the event we have to buy in supplies for your pets we will of course supply you with the appropriate bills or receipts.
We realise letting someone into your house while you are away could be a very daunting prospect but we will treat your house and property as we would expect others to treat our own, keeping it tidy at all times. In addition we always arrange and carry out a consultation visit with you to ensure every one is happy with the arrangements made between us. Therefore maintaining the utmost respect to your privacy and care of your property.
In addition both myself and my husband hold the required Police Disclosure Documents, stating that neither of us have criminal records. We are also fully insured with Clintons Insurance Company.
Your peace of mind is of the utmost importance to us.
Prices are on application, as it depends how far away you are, for this service. So please give us a no obligation call and we can have a chat regarding your pets needs.
We very much look forward to hearing from you.
Don't forget to book early though...! Your pets come first.
