Animal Companions: Services for Dogs- Dog Walking, Cat Sitting, Animal Boarding (Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, etc.)


Dog Care

I offer many services for your canine friend. Read below to get an idea of what I do and, as always, if a service is not mentioned here, don't be afraid to ask.

Dog Walking

We all know exercise and socialising are essential for a dog's health and well-being. These are key factors that aid in having a happy, healthy, confident and well balanced dog. During your busy day, let me give your dogs the exercise they require when you are unable to do so.

I offer group or one to one walks, depending on your dog's needs. Fresh water will be provided for every trip out.

Dog Walking

  • £10 per hour for group walks
  • £15 per hour for solo walks

Discounts are available for more than 1 dog per family and for OAPs.
Bank holidays and weekends are charged at double time.

Collection and drop off are available and are chargeable at 40 pence per mile outside the 3 mile radius.

Doggy Daycare

Dogs playing together

If your dog needs a bit more attention than just an hour's walk, then the doggy day care service is the perfect choice. Your pooch will benefit from socialising and have a fun time with other dogs in a secure garden, plus get an hour's group walk over the Foots Cray Meadows – 97 hectares of woodland and open space to romp and frolic and, for the water lovers, a cool river to splash around in.

Please note, dogs must be well socialised and non-aggressive for this service.

Doggy Day Care

Two doggies
  • £15 per dog for up to 4 hours
  • £18 per dog for up to 6 hours
  • £20 per dog for up to 8 hours

Discounts are available for more than 1 dog per family and for OAPs.
Bank holidays and weekends are charged at double time.

If your dogs need medication, please make me aware at the time of booking. Vet appointments can be made on your behalf. Please call for a personalised quote.

Collection and drop off are available and are chargeable at 40 pence per mile outside the 3 mile radius.

Dog Home Visits

Doggy Relaxing

If you have a puppy, elderly or unwell dog that just needs a visit for toilet break, playtime and fuss & cuddles, then my Home Visit service to break up the day is a great choice. I offer an hour's visit which can be combined with garden playtime and a short walk, or just simply a toilet break and companionship depending on your dogs needs.

Animal Companions only recommends short walks for puppies until they are a year old. Puppy's bones are growing and through this growing period, an hour's walk can do more harm than good which is why I offer the combined short walk and garden playtime. Stimulating games and basic training techniques will help your puppy burn off all that energy.

Dog Home Visits

  • £12 per hour's visit per dog

Bank holidays and weekends are charged at double time.

Dog Boarding

Happy doggies

Planning your annual holiday, short break or business trip? Animal Companions offers short and long term boarding, caring for your companions within a home environment. Kennels can be stressful for some dogs, but with this service, your dog will have their own holiday. They will live in the house with my own family where they have fun with other dogs with daily group walks and garden playtime, plenty of fuss and cuddles and warm cosy beds to snuggle into at the end of an exciting day, leaving you to have a stress free holiday.

I have a secure garden for playtime, plus I will give your dog(s) a minimum of an hour's daily walk unless you advise differently (excludes dogs under a year old – walking time will be dependant on their age). If your dogs need medication, please make me aware of this at the time of booking. Vet appointments can be made on your behalf. Please call for a personalised quote. I'm sorry but I do not accept aggressive dogs.

Testimonials

Angel

Neo

We just wanted to say thank you so much for being a fantastic carer for our dog Angel. You are one of the most caring and understanding dog carers we know. We don't quite know what we would have done without you. You're flexible with times, reliable and trustworthy. Angel absolutely loves you, and you have been great with her. Thank you so much for looking after her during the times she had her seizures; you knew exactly what to do and were so very calm and understanding about the situation. We appreciate everything you have done for us, and would say that any dog would be lucky to have you as their walker/carer.
