Dog Walking

Owning a dog brings so much joy to our lives and we in turn love to see our companions having everything they desire. However, it can be difficult to find the time in our busy schedules to provide the optimum stimulation and exercise our dogs need daily. 

This being the case, you are sure to love our dog walking services. We have experts to walk your dog, who are trained, DBS checked, fully insured and follow the Professional Dog Walkers’ Guidelines as endorsed by RSPCA and Dogs Trust. So, whether you are at work or away for the day, you can be certain your dog will get the exercise and stimulation they need on a regular basis. If you would like to know more about our dog walking service, just contact our team and we will be happy to advice and put a plan together to cater to your requirements.

Pet Feeding

We all know just how hectic life can be when it comes to work and family ties and sometimes, we just need to get away for a holiday or day trip to unwind and relax with our loved ones. However, simply getting away can become stressful when you need to think about organising and providing care for the animals who can’t travel with you. 

Also, many of our pets at home find it stressful being taken away from their normal environments and routines. This being the case you will be happy to know we have the solution, a professional pet feeding service. Professional carers who are trained, DBS checked and fully insured will visit your home to feed and fuss your pets while you are away. Providing you with peace of mind that your pets are relaxed, well cared for and your property has added security with regular visits. So if you have animals at home and would like our help in this respect, just give us a call and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.

Dog Hosting

So, you’ve booked your holiday, but what about a holiday for your dog while you’re away? Adored Animals Hospitality offer a great alternative to kennels, by providing a professional dog hosting service where we can host your dog for the day or longer term. 

We can ensure your dog will have a great holiday in a home environment with one of our trained and insured dog hosts. If you have dogs that get stressed or suffer anxiety when put into kennels, then this is the service for them. You will get to meet your dogs host and see the home they will be staying in, giving you full peace of mind that your best friend is getting all the love and attention they deserve enjoying a holiday while you enjoy yours. 

We only ever host dogs from the same household together and all our carers are experienced dog lovers. Contact us today for a more in-depth conversation about how we can cater for your dogs holiday requirements.

Pet Taxi & Animal Ambulance

Travelling with your pet is something that can sometimes be a challenge, and because of this, it is great to have some help. Thanks to our fantastic Pet Taxi and Animal Ambulance service, we can provide you with all of the help that you need. We offer a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle for your pet, which means that they can be transported with as little stress as possible. No matter where you might be going, and whether it is a long or a short journey, you will find that our pet taxi service is second to none, so just get in touch with us if you would like us to arrange a journey for you.
