Meet Rebecca | We Love Pets Derby

Rebecca is our wonderful We Love Pets Derby branch director. She grew up with a variety of animals so has plenty of experience and genuinely loves working with them. Rebecca and her local team are all pet care experts, so you can trust them to take proper care of your pets.

The team are local to the area so know all the best places to have a fun and safe walk with the dogs. They are also all fully insured, DBS checked, and pet first aid trained for your peace of mind when leaving your pet with us. Our home boarding service is also fully licensed and a brilliant alternative to kennels while you’re on holiday.

We want your pets to genuinely enjoy their time with us, so make sure that every second that we’re with them is full of exercise, fun and mental stimulation. We will also take lots of pictures of your pets throughout the day so you can see what your pets are up to with us. We will also leave notes covering what we got up to, whom your dog met on their walk, or even where we put your mail if it arrived while we were there.

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.

Pop in Pet Sitting

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.

Home Boarding
House Sitting

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!

House Sitting
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…

What our customers say

Dog Walks - from £15 an hour

Our dog walks focus on exercise, socialisation, and fun! We match dogs with a suitable walking buddy, but never walk in groups of more than four - as part of our 'No Pack Walk Policy.' Our friendly, knowledgeable dog walkers will send updates and photos whilst out, before returning your dog clean, happy, and ready for a rest.

Home Boarding - from £40 per 24 hours

Give your dog a holiday while you're away through our home boarding service. Your pup will stay with one of our fully licensed & experienced host families in a safe, comfortable home - rather than a kennel. We'll stick to your dog's diet, routine, and walking schedule for a true home-from-home experience.
Animal activity licence for home boarding: 91014

Pet Visits - from £12 for 30 minutes

Need someone to pop in and check on your pet? Our trustworthy and reliable pet care professionals will make a visit for tailored feeding, medication administration, play & interaction, toilet breaks, and to clear any messes. They're DBS checked for your peace of mind, and will send regular updates and photos during the visit.

House Sitting - from £80 per 24 hours

Keep to your pet's normal routine while on holiday with our house sitting service. One of our pet care professionals will stay with your pet in your home to follow their routine, clean hutches and cages, give medication, go for walks, let out for the toilet, help around the house, and give your pet plenty of fuss and love!

Why we love Derby

Our favourite places to take dogs in Derby

Markeaton Park is a great place for a day out with the dog and the rest of the family. There is plenty for the kids to do and lots of space for walking the dog. With open spaces for running and playing with your dog, and woodland for exploring, your dog will love it just as much as the human family members.

Darley Park is a lovely natural park area with woodlands perfect for getting noses twitching and exploring and grassy areas great for running and a game of fetch. There’s even part of the River Derwent running through for a lovely paddle and cool down on hot days.

To walk around Alvaston Park is a lovely long walk for you and your dog. Along with the open space for running around after a ball, and the lake for a dip in the sun, the area is great for a wander with your dog for lots of exercise and mental stimulation.
