Right at the start, we will come to meet you at home for an initial consultation to get to know you and find out all about your dog, down to the very last detail.
Then, we will go through our dog sitting host families with you and carefully help you select the most appropriate host to meet your dog’s individual needs.
Before you go on holiday, we will provide you with our exclusive ‘Holiday Doggy Bag’, which you can pack with food, bowls, blankets and toys – anything which will help your dog settle in comfortably with their own holiday carer.
If you will be going away for 7 days or more (or a shorter stay at our discretion) we will arrange a trial mini-sleepover with your mutually selected dog sitter host, to allow your dog to get used to their home-from-home. This provides both you and your dog with additional peace of mind, ensuring a successful relationship has already started to blossom, before you leave them for a longer time.
We provide your dog sitter with your dog’s full information, detailing all the details we gather from you about your dog. This enables us to provide a tailor-made experience for your dog.
Our dog sitting service includes arranging to collect your dog from you and delivering your dog back to you when you return. Many dogs can become anxious on being taken by their owners to their dog sitter and then watching their family walk away. Even the sight of a suitcase being packed, can alert some dogs to imminent upheaval and may cause stress. By collecting your dog from you, he/she will leave their home with everything still in place and as they know it.
Once your furry friend has arrived with their dog sitting family, we will send you a photo of him or her, to show you how well they’re settling in. And the next day you’ll receive a ‘Rest Easy’ update, giving you that little extra reassurance that your companion is safe and sound and well.
During your dog’s stay, as your dog sitter, we ensure our hosts dedicate the majority of their time to caring for your dog. All of our hosts are at home in the day and so can provide constant care and attention. They will maintain a schedule for your dog which is as close as possible to the routine they normally enjoy at home. Exercise regimes, feeding, all their likes and dislikes and any medical requirements will be catered for, just as they are by you.
We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to offer our host families any support they may require.
Once you have returned home, we will bring your dog back to you at a time that suits. They will arrive back and be delighted to find everything in a state of normality, which will ease their return to usual everyday life at home.
And your furry friend will even bring you a welcome home postcard for you from their host family, letting you know everything they’ve been up to.
