Our service caters to a variety of dogs with special needs around kenneling or those dogs new to being away from home, including: seniors, rescue survivors, on medication, shy or pampered. Pick-up and delivery of the pets door-to-door ensures minimum stress to the pet or owner.
Dog kennels, dog boarding houses and pet sitters can't compete with our unique private-home services that offer cosy, cage-free environments with around-the-clock, one-on-one human contact with loving host families. Unlike a kennel or boarding house, our service also prevents exposure to a host of diseases and illnesses.
We arrange for dogs to stay with loving host families who can match the sort of environment and routine the dogs are used to. We select the ideal dog sitting host family from our portfolio of trusted dog sitters who meet our extremely high standards.
It goes without saying that our hosts are all dog-lovers, who must provide genuine affection and one-to-one attention, and who are chosen based on their attitudes and values towards dogs. Some are active retired people who have had dogs before and miss the routine and exercise, others are at home during the day with children and can provide a busy family environment - many have pets of their own for the guest to make friends with.
Accommodation is arranged in a warm, friendly home environment similar to your own. Exercise and feeding routines are maintained just as your dog is used to, he can even take his own bed and toys! There are no hidden charges in our rates for play time, cuddles or walking.
