Meet Ryan White | We Love Pets Bungay
We Love Pets Managing Director Ryan White looks after the Bungay branch with co-owner and wife, Jo White. The couple live just over the border in Norfolk and are hands-on with their business. They understand better than anyone what their customers need and impose the highest standards of pet care.
Their We Love Pets Bungay branch is very special as it is so close to home, and allows Ryan and Jo to be directly in touch with the animals in their care. With decades of experience in animal behaviour and training, who better to be your local We Love Pets dog walkers or pet sitters than the owners themselves!
Read more about Jo & Ryan
Husband and wife team Jo and Ryan White are the head of the We Love Pets family and they live in East Anglia with their two children, four Fox Red Labs and umpteen chickens. Jo founded We Love Pets in 2007 when she realised that busy pet owners needing day care and holiday care for their pets only had neighbours, or kennels and catteries, to rely on – and that just wasn’t good enough.
The We Love Pets model of pet care puts pets first and gives them the loving, personal and professional level of care they deserve. Instead of having strangers take care of pets, or burdening friends and relatives, friendly and fully trained We Love Pets local teams are there to provide a flexible service that works around your schedule and situation.
Bungay pet care services
Our dog walker service runs throughout the day, 7 days a week. Your dog will be walked in a safe open space and will return home, happy and tired. We also provide fresh water, treats and will towel your dog off in wet weather.
More about our dog walkers
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.
Your dog’s safety is always our top priority which is why we never walk large groups of dogs at one time.
We want your dog to experience a fun-filled walk whilst under constant supervision, without being bombarded by lots of big dogs!
We’ll match your dog with a doggie friend who is suitable in age, size and playability.
Our fully trained, trusted dog walkers are experts at tailoring each walk to your dog’s individual needs and will reinforce any training or routines that you already have in place.
Pet sitting allows you to go away happy with the knowledge that your pets will be well looked after at home where they are comfortable. We'll spend time with your pet, make a fuss, feed and water them, plus clear up any mess.
More about pet sitting
All of our pet sitters are professionally trained, vetted by us personally and background checked. They are also pet first aid trained and fully insured.
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 visit you to talk through your animal care routine and ensure we stick to your normal pet care practice.
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 offers the comforts and fuss of a dog lover’s home that’s as good as your own!
More about home boarding
Your dog will be thoroughly pampered and welcomed into a trusted pet sitter’s home as part of the family, with your dog’s diet and daily routine maintained throughout your dog’s stay.
When you’re going away on holiday, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your dog is safe and happy without you.
How does dog home boarding work?
While you’re away, your dog will be going on a lovely holiday of their own! They will become part of the family and enjoy walks and plenty of individual attention. Dog boarding is perfect for dogs who get on with other dogs and people.
We Love Pets boarders are not just dog sitters – our aim is to fully integrate your dog into the life of our family during their time with us.
For your peace of mind, our home pet boarders are:
- Experienced dog owners
- Licensed by the local authority
- Fully insured
- Police checked
- Trained in canine first aid
Our dog sitters provide company and toilet breaks for your dog when you're unable to pop home and let them out. Perfect if you work long shifts, or if your dog needs medication, frequent feeding or regular trips to the garden.
More about pet visits
Whether you have an older dog that needs medication or a younger dog requiring frequent feeding, our dog visits take care of everything your dog could need, even if that’s just simply spending time with them until you get home.
When you need to be out all day or stay late at work, we can pop in to feed your dog, provide fresh water, a toilet break and settle them down for the evening.
House sitting allows you to go away happy knowing your pets will be well looked after where they are comfortable. Your We Love Pets house sitter will be there to look after your pet 24/7, as well as to look after your home as if you were there.
More about house sitting
We Love Pets house sitters are local and friendly, love animals, are dedicated and extremely reliable.
Our house sitters are police checked and fully insured for your peace of mind.
You will have met 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 get frequent updates on how your pets are doing.
We can help you get through those first few weeks and months after a puppy arrives, so that you can go to work without worrying. We'll make frequent visits for regular feeding, cleaning, toilet breaks and lots of fun!
More about puppy care
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 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 will visit your puppy at times agreed with you and provide updates throughout the day (if required!).
and we offer so much more…
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
Areas covered by our Bungay branch:
Our Bungay branch covers a lot of different areas in the nearby Suffolk countryside. See if your location is listed here and if it isn’t, there’s a strong chance we can help you anyway, so why not get in touch!
The market town of Bungay is located just off the A143 in the northern reaches of Suffolk, East Anglia. This quaint town is home to We Love Pets HQ, and sits on the edge of The Broads.
Just a hop, skip and a jump away from Bungay, Ditchingham lies across the River Waveney and therefore sits in the county of Norfolk.
We love the stunning village of Ellingham, just two miles up from Bungay on the A143. Always a pleasure to walk dogs here!
With its beautiful riverside walks and Wetland Centre, there’s plenty to see and do while rambling around Earsham.
What our customers say –
“We cannot praise Ryan and his team highly enough, we were able to enjoy our holiday knowing that Beau (our 20 year old cat) was well looked after, with extra cuddles, and our home was in safe hands. We look forward to using their services again in the not too distant future.“
An outstanding company who regulate themselves to an exceptional standard and genuinely care. I first contacted We Love Pets early one Sunday morning to enquire about their dog walking services, after a sudden change in personal circumstances left me with no dog care during work hours. They responded to my enquiry almost immediately the same morning and I have never looked back since. My golden retriever, Oak, was quickly welcomed into the We Love Pets family and given exemplary care, tailored to suit both his and my needs. The team has been professional, knowledgeable, reliable, friendly and extremely flexible with regards to my unusual working hours. All aspects of their communication are superb and I receive multiple personalised updates each day whilst Oak is in their care. We Love Pets has provided so much more than just amazing company and walks for Oak; they have ultimately provided peace of mind for me that Oak is receiving the best possible care when I can’t be there, which is priceless. I will forever be grateful to all of the team at We Love Pets for going above and beyond and I thoroughly recommend them.

Why we love Bungay
Our favourite places to take dogs in Bungay
We love walking across the fields on the outskirts of Bungay to St Peter’s Hall, a beautiful 16th Century moated house.
Bigod’s Way is a local favourite in the area and a great way to explore Bungay, Ditchingham, Earsham and the Common.
Pop into Earsham Street Cafe with your pooch for a spot of homemade cake and a cuppa.
There are so many gorgeous walks along the Waveney Valley, perfect for sunny days when dogs need to cool off in the river.
The stunning seaside town of Southwold is one of our favourite places, and the walk to beautiful neighbouring village, Walberswick, is just the right length to tire out a pooch.
Take in the beautiful surroundings along the Bath Hills walk to Outney Common, keeping dogs on a lead.
For impressive views across Bungay town and Earsham Church, weave your way across the marshes and head to Constitution Hill, it’s well worth the hike!
