Pet Sitting vs Kennels/Homeboarding

Some of your pets will get along fine in kennels or with a homeboarder. There are some excellent options available for these services if your budget can’t stretch to a full pet sitting option.

Many of your pets however will not get on with these other options for their care. There are unfortunately a lot of pets who find these options to be unpleasant and stressful. For these pets the benefits of having their own dedicated pet sitter are clear.

Don’t just take our word for it…

Absolutely great service! I have 4 unruly hounds, one is 18 years old, senile, deaf, almost blind on various medications… one has just recently gone completely blind (he has no eyes!) and is on medications… one is massive and a bit simple and one is young, crazy and naughty. They are not an easy bunch!

The SharePortal is excellent! It is super easy and removes all worry! All your house details, animal details etc are on there and you can keep updating them! We had regular updates with pictures and videos on the portal and on what’s app.

There were no issues at all and everyone was perfectly fine when we returned home. It was lovely to have a handover when we returned and milk in the fridge for a well needed cuppa! Our house was lovely and clean (better than when we left!).

I am a small animal vet and was really happy with the care my animals received while I was away. It gave me the chance to rest and recuperate after a tough time knowing my fur family were well cared for.

I will 100% be using this service again and would recommend to anyone! Thank you Eleanor and David!

Would your pet get the amount of attention he prefers

Spending hours alone in a cubicle?

Or with a dedicated sitter just for him…

Would your pet prefer to eat …

From a bowl of the same food as the other animals?

Or from her own bowl with her own special brand of food…

Would your pet prefer to play

With a crowd of animals he doesn’t know?

Or with his own dedicated sitter…

Would your pet prefer to sleep …

Somewhere noisy and smelling of other animals?

Or in that special spot they have chosen as theirs…
