Sometimes our work hours can mean that our pets are left alone for long hours during the day, which can be quite stressful for some pets. Or, sometimes when we go away on trips our pets would prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home rather than go to a cattery or a strangers house. Our pet visits service offers an alternative to this, where we will come and give your pet some attention part way through your working day, or check up on them when you are away on a trip. This is especially important for young puppies as they can suffer from separation anxiety if left alone for too long, and for cats who would prefer to stay at home whilst you are on holiday rather then going somewhere strange and stressful for them. Our visits will be specific to your requirements and your pets needs.
Pet visits include
After your initial enquiry, we will arrange a free appointment to meet you and your pet (appointments are usually on weekday evenings for approximately 15-20mins between 5 to 7 pm, but we can arrange a time that suits you). During this meeting you will get to meet us and you can inform us of any specific requirements, so we can tailor our visits to your pet's needs (such as making sure your dog or puppy goes to the toilet, cleaning out litter trays, feeding pets, taking puppies for small walks ect). We will also discuss how the payment will be arranged, and so we can collect a spare set of keys.
Visits are usually 20 minutes long or 30 minutes long and you can also book more than one visit a day for your pet.
Visits are on the weekdays, and also on the weekends (subject to availability).
