So you are going away and Great Aunt Maude, who promised to come in and care for Kitty each day, has suddenly discovered that she is due to have her hip operation on the first day of your holiday!
The neighbour has already expressed their dislike of cats and is forever chasing him out of their garden, so what do you do?
You have exhausted your contact book and someone suggests that you try a pet sitter.
Your first thought is shock horror. A stranger in your home is not what you had anticipated when you had booked your dream holiday to Barbados, but since you do not wish to expose little Kitty to the confines of a cattery, the option of a pet sitter suddenly seems very attractive.
Following your research you discover that not only do they provide extra home security, but they also take in the post, water the plants and even put bins out for collection. Perhaps the idea of a pet sitting service is quite attractive after all!
So now to the nitty gritty.
1. Is your pet sitter insured
2. Are they registered
3. Do they have a CRB check

With bags packed and passport in hand, you are now able to enjoy that well earned holiday, content in the knowledge that you will have happy pets, a well watered garden and secured home while you are away.
We are now able to cover the following areas for our live in service:-
