Welcome to Karen's Dog Walking & Pet Service - Thanks for visiting!
Hi, my name is Karen
If, like me, you want your pets treated like one of the family and you need help looking after them whether because of work, holiday or other obligations, that's where I can help.
For dog walking, I walk maximum four dogs together per walk. This makes it comfortable to transport them to the park so that they have their own space. All dogs are restrained by their collar/harness so that they cannot jump around etc until we reach the park, when I encourage off lead playtime which they all love. I only walk dogs that are friendly to other dogs and people. With the exception of labradors, I only walk small sized dogs such as cockerpoos, frenchies, cavachon, spaniels, and dachshund.
If I am on holiday I have trusted friends who are also dog walkers that cover for me and are also fully insured etc.
As well as exercising and keeping your dog company, Karen's Dog Walking & Pet Service can also offer a pet sitting service, for example, if you have an older pet that just wants some company whilst you are away, pet sitting works well. This also applies with a new puppy that is not allowed outside for walks until after vaccinations, I can visit him/her at home for company, playtime, feeding etc, as well as cats/kittens and other smaller pets. I also offer a pet taxi service to help with vet visits, plus various other home services which, by making it appear that your house is occupied, can be an excellent crime deterrent, thereby caring for your home and your pet/s whilst you are away.
We have found that more frequently dog owners are finding that their dogs are not happy when left in kennels, they are stressed, miserable and sometimes poorly when collected. We can look after your dog/s in our home where they can still have their own bed and favourite toys etc, as well as being spoilt.
Cat sitting works if you prefer not to put your cat in a cattery when you are away, I am more than happy to visit your home and look after your cat for you, as we have found when we had cats, most cats prefer their own environment and are happier than with strangers in a cattery, plus catteries are very busy most of the time and noisy. If your cat is used to having the house to themselves, why take them away from it and upset them unnecessarily.
I am fully insured, undertaken Pet First Aid and CRB Police checked for your peace of mind.
Please feel free to contact me at any time by telephone, email or by using the contact us page for a personalised quote with no obligation. I also offer an initial period at a discounted rate to new clients. I will arrange to visit you at home, discuss your individual requirements and most importantly meet your beloved pet/s.
I very much looking forward to hearing from and meeting your fur babies.
