Service Description
Leave your beloved pet in a safe environment while you are away. I love animals and I will take care of your pet as if they were my own. I am happy to keep you updated daily with photos and texts and accommodate to any special needs your pet may have.

I enjoy regular exercise and am happy to provide complimentary walking for your pet when I visit your home, knowing how important exercise is for both their physical and mental wellbeing. I am negotiable on rates and can look after your pet at your own home for no extra cost if preferred. I grew up on a farm and have been around a range of animals my whole life including dogs, horses, cattle as well as smaller pets (birds, rabbits, guinea pigs)

I offer one complimentary visit to any potential customers so that you have the oppurtunity to meet with me, and determine if I am the right fit for your pets prior to committing to any booking. Any visits requested after this but outside of the booking dates will incur the standard house visting fee.

Alara was great with our two whippets, sent regular photo updates, dogs looked very happy and spoilt which was lovely to know and meant we could enjoy our time away without worrying. Thanks again.

Alara was fantastic. She ensured that we were updated each day with photos of Lily. Thanks Alara for peace of mind, knowing that Lily was well looked after.
