Pet sitting and holidays

Deciding where to go on holiday can often be the easiest part of planning a holiday. 

For many of us, a military operation would probably be easier to organise in comparison to the pre-holiday ritual that we put ourselves through. Any of the following sound familiar? (This is not all of it clearly, that would take far too long).

Passports (how can 10 years go by so quickly and how much?!?)

Holiday clothes shopping (how can so little cost so much?)

Travel documents (now known as your iPhone – other devices are available)

Currency (who even carries that anymore)

Spring clean the house (you know you do it)

Get to the bottom of the dirty washing Mount Everest that has somehow accumulated (you might need something that’s all the way at the bottom)

Packing (travelling light ultimately means you’ve forgotten something)

Sorting out pet care so that while you’re enjoying a well-deserved break, your pet will be too (remember to check your bags for the cat, they are notorious holiday stowaways)

The last point on the to do list is the easiest to tick off.  Choose We Love Pets.  Here’s why:

We Love Pets are an award winning pet care business which has looked after thousands of pets since it was established in 2007. We provide dog walking, home boarding & day care services, puppy, cat and pet sitting services along with small animal, reptile & exotics and horse & pony care.

We have teams of friendly people in different areas around the country and each team operates under the same ethos: to provide an excellent service to clients. All of our managers are animal lovers, with experience and qualifications in animal care.

We’re small enough to care but big enough to cope.

Our aim is to provide you with excellent pet care. We can offer care 7 days a week, even when your regular pet carer is on holiday or poorly.

Dog home boarding service

We Love Pets offer an excellent home-from-home dog boarding service. This is a fantastic alternative to traditional dog boarding kennels; ideal if you are on holiday and want your dog to be thoroughly pampered while you’re away.

Cat sitting service

Cat sitting is an ideal service for owners who are on holiday and want their cats to stay at home. We can provide cat visits morning, daytime or evening to provide fresh water, food, make a fuss and carry out other useful tasks.

Pet sitting service

If you’re away your pets can stay at home where they are happy and comfortable. We will come round to spend time with them, feed and water them. This means that you don’t have to rely on neighbours or family to feed your cats while you’re away.

Small animal care

We can either board your pets in an animal carer’s home or provide visits to your pets in their own home. We can look after chickens, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice or ferrets.

Horse and equestrian care

We have a small team of grooms and horse carers who can provide a range of services for your horse, pony or donkey. The team are all experienced in equestrian care and some staff have specific qualifications in looking after horses.

Reptiles and exotics

Our resident expert, Ryan, who works as an animal handling instructor at the Wiltshire College Animal Centre, provides us with the invaluable skills, training and advice to enable our teams to extend their services to your reptiles and exotic pets.

So getting your pet booked in for their holiday with We Love Pets is the easy part, now back to the top of that list…
