Nationwide dog sitters & dog sitting services | Animal Aunts

Dog sitting

Going away and leaving your home can be stressful for both you and your dogs. Booking an Animal Aunt enables your dogs to stay at home and continue with their familiar routine, regardless of the length of time that dog sitting is required.

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
  • 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


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.

Other tasks carried out:

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. Their presence will also considerably enhance the security of your home.

Specialist Dog Sitting Services


Your Animal Aunt can look after your dogs while you get married and even bring them to the venue for photos etc. then take them back to your home and care for them while the family are at the reception and of course while you are away on honeymoon.


Owners of boarding kennels also need a break occasionally so why not arrange for an Animal Aunt to stay, look after your home animals and keep the kennels running when you can’t.

Health problems

Your Animal Aunt can follow your instructions and continue any treatment your dogs need, keep their condition under observation, and call in the vet if their condition causes concern. Insulin injections can be administered to diabetic dogs, post-operative care can be arranged, epilepsy monitored and managed. We will carefully select an Animal Aunt with the appropriate dog sitting experience for your dogs particular requirements.

Whelping and puppy care can also be arranged. Whatever the situation, just call us to discuss and we can find the right dog sitter for you.
