FAQ
Most frequent questions and answers

Many dog owners work Monday to Friday and need to leave their dog for long periods during the day. An energetic lunchtime walk gives the dog the physical and mental stimulation it needs.

Sometimes we get requests from people who have suffered an injury or elderly people who are unable to walk their own dog and need our assistance. 

There are a number of things we would advise you look at when booking the services of a dog walker. These include:

  • Only use an insured dog walker and ask to see their policy. 
  • Ask to see their DBS certificate to ensure they don’t have a criminal record, especially if you are giving your dog walker a key to your property. 
  • During a ‘meet and greet’ see how the dog walker interacts with your dog(s). 
  • How much experience do they have with dogs? Are they a dog owner themselves for example?

Most requests for our pet sitting service are for cats and dogs. We are happy to offer pet sitting for other pets though. Whether it’s guinea pigs, rabbits, bearded dragons or some other pet, please contact us. 

During a group walk we will not walk more than four dogs at a time. This ensures we are in full control of your dog and can give them our full care and attention. If you would prefer your dog walked separately, then solo walks are available on request.

Yes, prior to walks or pet sitting taking place an initial free meet and greet consultation will take place at your home to discuss your specific requirements. We will take detailed notes about your pet’s habits, exercise regime, behaviour, and medical history.  We will also use this opportunity to go through and complete the necessary paperwork including the Vet Treatment form (in the unlikely event your pet needs to be taken to the vet), and our Terms and Conditions.

In the unlikely event of an emergency, we will immediately call and notify you. In the initial meet and greet, we will ensure we have emergency contact details in the event we cannot reach you. If veterinary treatment is needed, we will take your pet to your preferred vet or depending on circumstances, to the nearest possible one. Your pet will not be left unattended unless the vet has advised it is safe to do so.

Pet Service Reviews

"Gail has looked after our dog on several occasions when we have been away on long days out or on short breaks and I would not hesitate to 100% recommend her services to other pet owners. She treats our dog like one of her own. She is a very reliable, intuitive and responsible person and she develops close relationships with every animal she cares for. She is very flexible and tailors the care so that our dog has always had the most home from home experience possible e.g. feeding raw food and providing the same sleeping arrangements. My dog knows her now and is always excited to see her. I wouldn't leave him with anyone else."

"I have 2 staffies, Marlow and Juno and they both absolutely love Gail. I've used Gail's services on a number of occasions now while on short breaks or long days away and I feel fully reassured that they are very happy and well looked after whilst in her care. She does such a great job, is reliable, caring and very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her services."
