Ways we can help

Our pet and plant services are tailored to meet the needs of each client. Every pet has unique needs. This is why, before you book with us we'll arrange to come to your home to discuss your requirements in detail and to meet your pet!


Perhaps you are going away and just need someone to pop in and feed your cat, open/close the curtains or turn on lamps to make the house looked lived in?


Maybe you work long hours during the week and need someone to take your dog for a walk?


We can help with all these situations, and many more. We can even replenish bread and milk for your return from holiday.
