PetwatchUK Services

PetWatchUK provides a professional, flexible and comforting alternative to kennels or catteries.

PetWatch Pet Home servicesYou and your pet will, like every pet and owner, have individual pet care needs so I will always provide a personally-tailored service that is flexible enough to fit with whatever is right for you and your pet.

The pet sitting service I provide primarily covers Northampton / Milton Keynes and surrounding villages within a 20 mile radius of Towcester. I am happy to undertake pet sitting in other areas but these may incur additional travelling costs in the overall fee. Please give me a call to discuss this further.

The three types of pet sitting service that I provide are:

Home Visits

This is the most popular service that I provide and consists of visits to your home to care and feed your pet(s) or walk your dog(s) and is ideal for those who are out at work all day or away on holiday. Also included in this type of service at no extra cost are home security checks and indoor plant care as required.

House Sitting

This service involves me staying at your home overnight while you are away and looking after your pets and house. This is very useful for those who don’t want to leave their homes unattended while away or have a large number of pets. Some of my customers have found this particularly useful when they have small puppies or kittens that need regular attention.

Boarding

This service involves you leaving your pet(s) at my home while you are away. As I have four cats of my own I only offer this service for small animals such as Guinea pigs, rabbits, gerbils etc but it is a cheaper alternative to home visits for these type of animals.

At the present time I do not have any experience of catering for exotic pets and insects (such as snakes, spiders etc.) so at the moment I cannot cater for these.

Cat Sitting & Feeding

This consists of daily visits to your house to feed and care for your cat(s) in the security of their own home. This is a great alternative to catteries and relying on friends and family. You can go away safe in the knowledge that your cat will be well looked after in the comfort of their own familiar surroundings- reducing both their stress and yours while you are away.

A normal visit will be tailored to your personal needs and cover the following in the overall cost:

  • Fresh food and water (including any special dietary requirements)
  • Cleaning of food & water bowls
  • Cleaning of feeding area
  • Litter tray cleaning/emptying
  • Lots of cuddles and TLC !
  • Brushing (as requested)
  • Administering of medication (as requested)
  • Home security checks (as requested)

If your cat is unwell while you are away I will contact either you or your nominated emergency contact to discuss what action you would like me to take. If we decide that a visit to the vets would be appropriate I will take your cat in a vet approved pet carrier and inform you of the outcome of the consultation. All vet fees will be payable on your return. For this reason I will ask for your vets details when we complete the booking form.

Dog Sitting and Walking

Dog sitting consists of daily visits to your house to feed and care for your dog(s) in the security of their own home. This is a great alternative to kennels and relying on friends and family. You can go away safe in the knowledge that your dog(s) will be well looked after in the comfort of their own familiar surroundings reducing both their stress and yours while you are away.

For insurance purposes and the safety of your dogs I am only covered to care for or walk a maximum of two dogs at any one time.

A normal visit will be tailored to your personal needs and cover the following in the overall cost:

  • 30-45 minutes walk (including playtime and drying as necessary)
  • Fresh food and water (including any special dietary requirements)
  • Cleaning of food & water bowls
  • Cleaning of feeding area
  • Brushing (as requested)
  • Administering of medication (as requested)
  • Home security checks (as requested)

Dog Walking

I also provide a dog walking only service for people who perhaps cannot walk their dogs as regularly as they would like. This service consists of a 30-45 minute walk in the vicinity of your own home with drying/foot cleaning before the dog is left back in your home.

If your dog is unwell while you are away I will contact either your or your nominated emergency contact to discuss what action you would like me to take. If we decide that a visit to the vets would be appropriate I will take your dog in a vet approved car harness and inform you of the outcome of the consultation. All vet fees will be payable on your return. For this reason I will ask for your vets details when we complete the booking form.

Small Animal sitting and boarding

Currently I only cater for the following small animals:

Rabbits
Guinea pigs
Hamsters
Gerbils

Sitting for small animals consists of either daily visits to your house to feed and care for your pet(s) or leaving them with me at my home on a daily board basis. This is a great alternative to relying on friends and family. You can go away safe in the knowledge that your small animal(s) will be well looked after whichever option you choose.
I am happy to feed fish at your house or have a small tank at my home if I am already sitting another pet for you.
A normal visit will be tailored to your personal needs and cover the following in the overall cost:

  • Fresh food and water (including any special dietary requirements)
  • Cleaning of food & water bowls
  • Lots of cuddles and TLC !
  • Administering of medication (as requested)
  • Home security checks (as requested)

NOTE: Cage Cleaning carries an additional charge (see prices for small animals)

If your small animal is unwell while you are away I will contact either you or your nominated emergency contact to discuss what action you would like me to take. If we decide that a visit to the vets would be appropriate I will take your pet in a vet approved pet carrier and inform you of the outcome of the consultation. All vet fees will be payable on your return. For this reason I will ask for your vets details when we complete the booking form.

Home Security Service

The home security service gives you peace of mind while you are away. This will either be included free of charge as part of your pet sitting or can be undertaken independently for a small charge.
The home security service can provide any of the following as agreed with you as part of the booking process:

  • Bringing in the post/milk/newspapers etc.
  • Switching lights on and off
  • Opening/Closing curtains and blinds
  • Taking out the rubbish
  • Watering houseplants/hanging baskets
