Lucy happened upon We Love Pets by chance, only when looking into franchise opportunities for her husband. But after learning more about the We Love Pets model, she knew it was a perfect fit! Now she’s living her dream job working with animals each day.
Lucy shares her home with two tortoiseshell cats, Betty & Wilma (sisters from the same litter!) and six rescue bunnies. The rabbits even have their own outdoor mansion, cleverly dubbed “Fort Bunlop,” a nod to the former famous tyre factory in nearby Birmingham.
Stourbridge 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

The market town of Stourbridge is situated on the River Stour, just 15 miles to the west of Birmingham – England’s second largest city.
Once a Victorian hub for clay, glass and iron production, modern day Amblecote is returning to its agricultural roots, only a short drive from Stourbridge’s town center.
Nestled just between Stourbridge and Dudley, we love walking around the quiet, friendly neighborhood of Brockmoor.
As the birthplace of the steam engine, Wollaston has an important industrial history – we enjoy taking a stroll by St. James Church.
What our customers say –
“I was very anxious to return to my full time job because I didn’t want to leave my fur baby at home all day whilst I was at work. Especially after being with him all the time during lockdown. I couldn’t be more thankful for Emma and Lucy taking the worry off my shoulders. Not only does my dog love them, but I feel so reassured knowing that he is in the best hands possible. We Love Pets put animals at the heart of their company. When Lucy and Emma first met my dog, their love for animals stood out the most. They are so professional, friendly and experienced. Without doubt, I recommend we love pets to anyone.“
“Thank you Lucy, Finn absolutely adores you and looks forward to your visits where you play with him and feed him. Plus the walking. I appreciate the fact that while I’m at work he’s well looked after and that gives me a great sense of relief. This is a service I would highly recommend.”

Why we love Stourbridge
Our favourite places to take dogs in Stourbridge
Just a stones throw from the center of Stourbridge, Mary Stevens Park is the ideal spot for a leisurely dog walk! Paw-some bonus, the Mary Stevens Park Cafe is dog friendly, so you can enjoy a well deserved rest with your furry friend.
For a bit of West Midlands history, we recommend taking your pup along the Stourbridge Canal Walk, which winds in tandem with the River Stour, and tells the story of Stourbridge’s glass-making history.
Dog friendly Haden Hill Park is one of our favourite places to walk. We love strolling through the historical Victorian landscape, and exploring the lovely woodland trails.
A short drive to the northwest of Stourbridge is Highgate Common, a Staffordshire Wildlife Trust Reserve. Once part of an ancient lowland heath, it boasts a network of paths crossing woodland and heath – the perfect place to exercise you and your dog!
The Clent Hills dog walk is a lovely circular trail that passes through fields and woodland, and offers fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding Midlands country side. We especially enjoy this walk as you can let your dog off the lead for a bit of independent exploration.
