Dog Walking

Fun, play, and exercise are the focus of our dog walks.

Our dog walkers aim to make each walk the highlight of your dog’s day, giving them a chance to play, socialise, exercise, and explore new sights and smells, returning them home happy and tired.

Your dog’s safety is always our top priority which is why we never pack walk dogs. We want your dog to experience a fun-filled walk whilst under constant supervision, without being bombarded by lots of other dogs. Instead, our trained and trusted dog walkers will walk your dog with two doggie friends for maximum play and socialisation.

We also offer socialisation dog walks and a one-to-one dog walking service, if you have a dog who needs some alone time with their walker or wants some TLC whilst discovering the big wide world.

Our pet sitting services allow you to get away, happy with the knowledge that your pets will be well looked after - comfortable in their own home. Our pet sitter will spend time with your pets, make a fuss, feed, provide fresh water as required, and clear up any mess. 

Each of our pet sitters is professionally trained, vetted by us, fully insured and background checked. They also have up to date pet first aid training, for extra peace of mind. 

We look after dogs, cats, horses, ponies, small animals, and birds. Don’t worry if you have more than one pet – the more the merrier! Before you book, we will schedule a meet & greet visit to discuss your animal care routine and ensure we stick to your normal pet care practice.

Hourly Dog Sitting

Hourly Dog Sitting

If you are going out and don’t want to leave your dog, we can offer a dog sitting service, which works like babysitting. You choose the hours you want to book our trusted dog sitters and we will come to your house to take care of your dog for as long as you need us to. This is great for dogs who need one-to-one care in their own home.  

Hourly Dog Sitting
Home Boarding

Home Boarding

If you can’t bear the idea of leaving your dog in kennels when you go away on holiday, then our home-from-home dog boarding service is perfect for you! Our friendly, local home boarders offer all the comforts of home.

Your dog will be welcomed into a trusted pet sitter’s home as part of their family. While you’re away, your dog will be going on a lovely holiday of their own. They will become part of the family, enjoying regular walks and plenty of individual attention. Dog boarding is perfect for dogs who get on with other dogs and people.

Our branches are full members of the PCFA, licensed, trained, insured and police checked for peace of mind. Our high animal welfare standards mean your dog won’t be mass boarded but will instead be cared for as part of the family.

House Sitting

If you’re going away on holiday our housesitting service is an ideal solution for keeping your pet in their home and giving you a sense of security while you're away.

Our house sitters are fully insured, police checked and trained in pet first aid. You will have an opportunity to meet your house sitter before you go away to make sure we completely understand your needs and you trust us to stay in your home.

You’ll also receive updates on your pets and home while away. It's the closest thing to being home yourself!

Puppy Care

Puppy Care

We can help you get through those first few months after your puppy arrives, so that you can go to work without worrying.

Bringing a new puppy into the home is an exciting time! We understand that when you go back to work it is important that your puppy has as normal a routine as possible.

We'll make frequent visits for regular feeding, cleaning, toilet breaks, play and cuddles. And of course, we’ll clear up any puppy mess.

We Love Pets can help by providing daily visits to help take care of your puppy without the worry of leaving them alone all day.

We have a puppy package to suit every breed, and visits will depend on how long you’re out for, the age of your puppy and its requirements. Your puppy can then graduate to dog walks with some doggie friends.

Why choose We Love Pets?

We never pack walk!
Pack walking is when a large group of dogs are walked together at the same time. This is not safe for dogs, walkers or the general public who run into them. We’ll never pack walk your dog, which means they get more time out and about enjoying their walk than stuck in a van travelling to collect other dogs.

We’ve got high professional standards

  • We’re all pet first aid trained
  • Nobody is hired without a DBS check
  • All walkers have full insurance
  • Home boarders have licences from their council

and we offer so much more…

Our favourite places to take dogs in Brentwood

Merrymeade Country Park is full of nature and is one of our favourite places to take the dogs and let them explore! 

There are many beautiful walks in the fields of Herongate and Hutton, there is also a shallow stream running alongside them; perfect for those hot days when the dogs need a cool off. 

Thordon Country Park not only offers an amazing woodland walk, but it also offers a dog activity trail that has ten stand-alone obstacles and gives both walkers and dogs a taste of what agility training is like.  

Brentwood and the surrounding areas also provide plenty of dog-friendly pubs including The Nags Head and The Greyhound in Warley. Make sure to ask the staff for a dog treat when you’re there!
