Meet Lucy Greaves | We Love Pets Kidderminster
Our We Love Pets Kidderminster branch is run by Lucy Greaves, an area native and lifelong animal lover. Lucy is passionate about animal welfare, and is especially dedicated to advocating for the safety and welfare of rabbits – she and her partner have six!
Lucy is a City & Guilds qualified dog walker, and enjoys taking advantage of the variety of lovely dog walks that her area has to offer – we’ve listed her favourite places below. All of the Kidderminster team are all fully insured, police checked, and first aid trained to ensure maximum safety and wellbeing for your pet.

While browsing franchise opportunities for her husband, Lucy chanced upon We Love Pets, and said she “had no idea there was a franchise that fitted me so well!” With a background in customer service, she has all the right skills to work with a variety of customers and their furry counterparts, and is really excited to share her passion for animals with the Kidderminster area.
Fun fact: in addition to her rabbits, Lucy and her husband also have two tortoiseshell cats – Betty and Wilma, who are sisters from the same litter, and affectionately described as the typical “Naughty Torties.” Lucy says the cats rule the house, but their bunny counterparts occupy their own mansion known as, “Fort Bunlop,” which pays homage to the former tyre factory in nearby Birmingham. And while cats and rabbits take the cake as favourites, she says that she positively adores all animals!
Kidderminster 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!).

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 Kidderminster branch:
We are happy to provide our services from Kidderminster proper, out to its many surrounding towns and villages. We’ve listed a few of the places we cover here, so have a look to see if we’ve included your area. If your location isn’t shown, it’s still likely we’ll be able to help – so get in touch to find out what services we can provide for you!
Recorded in the Domesday book as early as 1086, we love being set in the historic market town of Kidderminster. Positioned at the congruence of four main ancient roads (to Birmingham, Dudley, Worcester & Bewdley, and Bridgnorth), it’s conveniently located and easy to access!
Just a couple miles north of Kidderminster, Wolverley is a unique village with interesting folklore – ask a local about the Legend of the Swan…
The name Bewdley is acutally derived from the French, ‘beau lieu,’ meaning ‘beautiful place,’ and we think they hit the nail on the head!
Initially a rural village, the construction of the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal put this lovely town on the map. Once an important distribution route for the West Midlands, the canal is now used for pleasure cruising purposes, and enhances the historical beauty of the town!
What our customers say –
“After using kennels the year before for our dog Teddy, not coming back in a lovely state (the bed was wet with urine) we vowed never to use the kennels again. We searched high and low for a pet sitter we found we love pets Kidderminster. Lucy’s original thorough consultation put our mind at rest and Caitlin’s love and care for our pets was second to non. Teddy loved Caitlin and so did the cats she looked after our fur family with such care it meant we could have a stress free holiday, Teddy became ill during the week we went and Caitlin even slept downstairs with Ted and went over and above while we were away. I would not hesitate to use we love pets again. Lovely service from lovely people“
“What a truly amazing service and so reliable! Lucy and Cathie were so professional and friendly, and showed so much love and attention towards our fur babies! My husband and I could go away knowing that our kitties were in super safe hands. We even had photos sent over to us regularly to show how they were doing and Cathie left a lovely note for us! I couldn’t recommend highly enough. We will be using WelovePets every time we go away now! wonderful service! Thank you!”

Why we love Kidderminster
Our favourite places to take dogs in Kidderminster
We love a dog walk across the beautiful expanse of lowland heath that is Hartlebury common. With a variety of dog-friendly walks to choose from, it’s a new adventure each time.
Habberley Valley is a nature reserve just south of Kidderminster proper that boasts sandstone hills, woodland paths, and well-worn trails perfect for a leisurely dog walk.
One of the largest remaining ancient woodlands in the whole of Great Britain, Wyre Forest is a West Midlands gem. Dogs are welcomed throughout the park, which even includes a dog friendly café and onsite dog washing station! Perfect for those days when your furry friend has a romp in the mud.
One of our favourite places for a stroll is Bewdley along the River Severn. Known for it’s stunning Georgian architecture, lively pub scene, and picturesque river scenes – it’s definitely dog walker approved!
Brinton Park has everything from a skate park to a sensory garden, and plenty of wide open green spaces for your dog to enjoy some off-the-lead freedom. We like to take the dogs and grab a cuppa from the pop-up café.
For wide open landscape as far as the eye can see, we recommend taking a hike across Spennells Fields.
