Home from home pet sitting and walking

Welcome

Our style of pet sitting is a home from home approach and you have peace of mind that we are looking after your pet. So from the time your pet is with us, we treat them like our own and they become part of our family. This means that the dogs in our care are looked after in our own homes, and on the odd occasion (if you are happy for us to) we take them with us to visit friends/family, which often means lovely walks on the beach or in the countryside.

We know every pet is an individual, so we treat them as such and like to keep your pets routine as close to normal as possible; this may include having a nap on the sofa after a nice walk or even sleeping at night on our beds, to which they are allowed. Equally, we accept not everyone allows their pets to go on sofas/beds, in these cases we will ensure they do not learn bad habits!

“I have known Genevieve for many years as a very dedicated Veterinary Nurse, and also as a reliable and excellent dog carer. My dog Rufus, a very active Jack Russell Terrier Cross enjoys his “holidays” with Gen. I would highly recommend Genevieve to all my dog-owning friends.”

Yvonne Stonelake, Dog Owner

“Our cat comes from Battersea Cats and Dogs home and doesn’t take to strangers easily, so we were very lucky to find Genevieve. It’s a real relief when travelling to know that he’s in such caring hands. We love the text updates we get regularly! The messages go to show how well Genevieve has got to know our cat’s personality and he’s always very happy and relaxed when we arrive home. I’d highly recommend this service, it’s excellent.”

Julia & James, Cat Owner

“We cannot thank Gen enough for her wonderful care of Keiko. On one occasion our kitten was unwell, requiring daily medicines and we had a business trip to Germany the next day. Gen came to the rescue visiting and caring for Keiko for the weekend. Since then we have called on Gen numerous times to help look after Keiko whilst we are out of town. Gen is friendly, reliable, highly skilled in animal care and allows us to travel safe in the knowledge that our cat is receiving the highest standard of care. Keiko receives daily visits, play and Gen ensures that she is well fed, happy and even cleans out the used litter tray! We would happily recommend Gen to anyone looking for pet care”

James & Kirsty, Cat Owner

“I’m delighted to have found Genevieve to look after my cats. My cats are old so the fact that she’s a Veterinary Nurse and worked at the local vet assures me that my cats will be looked after properly in any situation. Plus my cats love her and they always look happy and relaxed when she looks after them, which says it all. I highly recommend Genevieve.”

Alice, Cat Owner

“I approached Genevieve to look after our much loved dogs because I had already experienced how she interacted with dogs in her care, as I would often bump into Gen at the park whilst she was looking after other people’s dogs. This gave me confidence in her ability, and I wasn’t wrong making this choice.
Gen and her family accepted our dogs into their home with open arms and made them feel welcome and loved. Thanks to her experience she was able to keep them in line and she has the ability to let them know whom the boss is! She has a great knowledge of dog behaviour which shows with her understanding of your dog’s needs.
Whenever we go out for a walk and pass Gen’s road our dogs will start to try and tug their way to her front door to say Hi, which shows what a great job she does.
We would definitely recommend Gen to anyone!”

Jo and Steve Aparicio, Cat Owner

“We have two lovely cats Tizwas and Tigger who are 14 years old. Tizwas is diabetic and needs his injections twice a day. Fortunately, Genevieve has known them both since they were young, as she is a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse and worked at our local vets.

It’s really reassuring to know that we can rely on such a caring, professional and trustworthy person like Genevieve to look after our cats when we are away. Especially for Tizwas who needs his daily injections. We can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Steve & Linda Goodman, Cat Owner

“Genevieve has looked after Coco & Bleu, our rather spoiled Siamese siblings, when we have managed to tear ourselves away from them on holiday. They need a lot of love and devour attention and Genevieve provided both. I would have no hesitation in recommending Genevieve’s services, we’re already booked in for this summer!”

Chris, Dog Owner

“Genevieve has always looked after Mikey wonderfully while we have been away. He is an attention-seeking terrier and she copes well with this. He always arrives home calm and happy, so she is doing a sterling job!”

Perdita & Charlie, Dog Owner

“Magic is my lovely 10 year old dog. She is very precious to me and I know when Magic is with Genevieve that she is looked after very well and is a happy girl. I am always happy to leave her and know that when I pick her up she looks happy and healthy.”

Terrie Slatter, Dog Owner
