F.A.Q


Handy things to know!

When you decide to use our services for the very first time we will arrange a complimentary visit to your home at a mutually convenient time. This enables us to meet you and your pets and go through your requirements and pets routine, you can inform us of your pets likes/dislikes favourite toys, games, dietary requirements, medication your pet may be on or any other requirements you may have. We can then go through the paperwork and arrange for your pets service to begin.

We are extremely versatile as our service can be tailored to suit you and your pets individual needs. Pets get to stay in their own environment with familiar sights and smells around them and can continue to enjoy their own routine while avoiding the transport/travel trauma associated with going to kennels/catteries. Also minimises exposure to illness from other animals. Most of all happy, contented pets and peace of mind for you.
It would be really helpful if a dustpan and brush and any cleaning products required are left out so your pet sitter can ensure all feeding and litter tray areas are kept clean, if you could also leave plenty litter and food supplies this will help us greatly and save us having to purchase extra supplies in your absence. If we do have to purchase extra supplies this will be invoiced to you on your return plus a £4 errand fee for our time.

Unfortunately we cannot refund payments from customers who have booked our services who choose to return home early. If you do decide to return home earlier than expected please let us know so we can avoid visiting and disturbing you.
We accept cash, BACS transfer or if you are a package customer we can provide details for you to set up a standing order. We do not accept cheques. Payments for services is payable either at your consultation or left out for collection from your pet sitter on the first visit.
Yes of course, we take our business seriously and hold full liability insurance.
First we would assess the situation and call you to obtain your instructions. If in the event we could not get hold of you and your pet required medical attention we would take your pet to your nominated veterinary practice or depending upon our location/circumstances a vet in the locality.
Most of our regular customers take advantage of our complimentary key holding service which comes in handy if you ever misplace your keys, one quick call and we can be there asap. If however you choose not to use this service key collection is complimentary on your first booking so when we visit you for your pet consultation you may provide us with a set of keys which we will use for your booking but we will return the keys to your possession after the service. All future key collection and drop off is charged at £5.00 per trip.

Testimonials


Some nice words from our customers

About


Pet Sit Services is owned and run by myself sharon with help from my son Ross and our own "Dr Dolittle" cat carer David, i am a huge animal lover, having lived a large part of my life on a farm in the very beautiful rural Northumberland Countryside which allowed me to indulge my animal passion and I think I lived alongside practically every animal under the sun from cats, dogs, rabbits which we used to breed, horses, hens, which I still have and love to bits, they’re so funny to watch, you name it I probably owned it.

I suppose the only downside to this is we had to endure the tearful farewells when our faithful friends got old and passed away, but the one thing they all left us with are some wonderful memories.

Like a lot of cat sitting business’s, Pet Sit Services did evolve initially as a way to assist people like ourselves who faced problems or didn’t feel comfortable asking friends or family to care for our pets when we had a holiday or needed to be away from home, but the most important reason we offer this service is our sheer love of animals and spending time with them and Pet Sit Services certainly gives us that.

My interests are anything animal really and the great outdoors, I’m always been very interested in psychology after studying it in my younger years, in recent times I’ve gone on and studied canine and feline psychology so have experience in cat behaviours especially the unwanted ones, such as marking behaviours and stress related alopecia in cats, comes in handy when visiting anxious or nervous pets. This led me to offer our new music therapy for cats/pets service.

The manner in which we run our business is very important to us, as well as being confident and experienced in what we do, we are friendly, genuine and honest people who want the best for you and your pets. “Some people say no one looks after your pets like you do yourself- BUT WE REALLY DO!

Take a look at our little furry family-we hope you will join us and allow us to take care of yours!
