Dog Sitting

  • Going away on holiday or business?

  • Have tickets for that big event?

  • Going to dog shows? Need a dog sitter for your other dogs and animals?

  • Who will feed, walk and love your dogs as you do?

  • Worried about your elderly dog and medication?

Going away and leaving your home is hard and can be stressful for both you and your dogs. Having a dog sitting service enables your dogs to stay at home and continue with their familiar routine – your Animal Aunt will love your dog, give them the affection and stimulation they need, with lots of walks and company the whole time.

Whether you have large dogs or small dogs, pet dogs or working dogs (or somewhere in between) your Animal Aunt / dog sitter will:

    • Care for them all at your home whether they sleep on your bed, in the kitchen or in a kennel
    • Continue their normal routine
    • Follow their daily routine in their own surroundings
    • Feed them their usual food at the usual times
    • Administer any medication or special diets as required
    • Continue with any puppy training and take them to their classes when necessary
    • Provide security for your home by “being there” with your dogs nearly 24 hours a day

Exercise:
Your dogs will be exercised exactly to your specification and have the exercise you want them to have, in the places you want them to go. Whether they need lots of exercise or are on restricted exercise due to age or ill health your dog sitter will follow your instructions.

An Animal Aunt will care for ALL the other pets / animals you have while house sitting your home – keeping it tidy, watering your plants, keeping the garden ticking over and handling any emergencies quickly and professionally. Because they are there nearly all of the time they also considerably enhance the security of your home.

Result = Happy and stress free dogs + Happy and stress free you!
