Do you have one or more dogs ( maybe other pets at home ) and feel that they would prefer the comfort of staying at their own home?
We have team members who will stay at your house for the duration of the time you are away. In addition to caring for your dog (giving them meals, cuddles and attention plus their walks ) they can also carry out other pet care services such as feeding the goldfish, hamster or cat etc.
If your pet doesn’t get on with other animals, is elderly or has never been vaccinated, or you have a multi-pet household, a live-in pet sitter is the ideal option, especially if you want the added security of someone staying in your house whilst you’re away.
The live-in pet sitters at Woodland Walkies are experienced, mature and trustworthy pet lovers. So you can enjoy your holiday or break knowing your pet and your property are in safe hands.
Before your planned trip, a live-in pet sitter from Woodland Walkies will meet you at your home to go though your pet’s routine and discuss any domestic duties that are needed.
Your pet sitter will love and care for your pet just like you do and your pet will receive the very best professional care and attention. Many of our pet carers are also trained to give medication are fully insured and are familiar with most conditions.
Our live-in pet sitters are happy to perform light domestic duties while living in your home such as mail collection, feeding the fish and watering the plants. And whilst your sitter will ensure your home is kept clean and tidy, please note our live-in pet sitters are not professional cleaners.
Initial meeting consultation…
Before we can confirm a booking with regards to any of our services a free consultation meeting must be arranged prior to the start booking date. During the consultation meeting you will be able to ask questions, this meeting also gives us the opportunity to spend some quality time with you and your dogs before the booking.
- Meeting at your home with our team member to discuss your requirements and plan the stay.
- Meeting and getting to know your dog – this encourages your dog to feel safe when we care for them.
- Going through security – locking up your home and keys.
- Bedroom arrangements.
- Important numbers just in case of an emergency – these include your local plumbers etc…
- Feeding and general routine for your dog.
- Questions and concerns can be asked and answered during the meeting. You may have more questions after the visit – not a problem just contact us to have a chat.
Live in pet sitter guidelines…
- Your home
Your house must be clean, comfortable and of a reasonable standard. If, at your first meeting, your pet sitter doesn’t feel that your house is of a suitable standard, we have the right to turn down the booking.
- Food and medication
Please ensure you leave enough food for your pets and medication if they are taking anything to last the length of your pet sitter’s stay.
At Woodland Walkies we charge a 24 hour rate rather than a nightly, with our dog sitting service your live-in pet sitter needs to be able to leave your house for a maximum of three hours a day to continue with other pet walking jobs or private chores. If your dog cannot be left for this long please let us know when you first call us, as an additional charge can be added for a full-time pet sitting service if needed.
- Travel expenses
We ask that you pay your live-in pet sitters’ travelling expenses calculated at 45p per mile plus all parking, train fares and congestion charges. This applies to the first meeting, and the first and last day of the booking. If your live-in pet sitter is required to use their car during the booking to transport your pet on a daily basis, then a nominal fee of £3 per day should be added to your pet sitter’s total amount to cover petrol and wear and tear on their car.
