Once you are happy with us, we will collect/visit pets on arranged days. We know your pets will be ready and waiting for each visit scheduled with us. Please do give plenty of notice for Ad Hoc bookings as we can get full from time to time.

Polite notice

We are unable to walk any dog that is aggressive towards people and/ or other animals. It’s against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere, and as such we operate an aggressive dog policy. Should your dog become aggressive towards people and/ or other animals whilst in our care we will terminate our service.

We understand how important your pets are in your lives, therefore we treat every pet as our own. We have extensive knowledge & experience gaining the trust of your special companion. Have a look at us in action!
