Animal House Pet Sitting


About Jacqui

My name is Jacqui, and both myself and my partner Oliver have several years of experience caring for various animals – from those in our own homes, to those of our friends and families, to larger and more exotic species. I hold a First Class Honours degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare and have worked at a riding school, a farm, an animal sanctuary and a safari park, along with various work experience positions at places such as veterinary practices and a dog kennels. Oliver has experience caring for and breeding dogs as well as small exotic animals such as lizards, snakes and tortoises.

We feel we have a loving home and can offer your animals something that a kennels cannot. Oliver works from home, so one of us is here all day to dedicate plenty of time to playing with your treasured companions and giving them the love and attention they deserve while you are away.

You are welcome to visit us in our home if you have any queries or want to discuss details.

    We were extremely impressed with the care provided by Jacqui and Olli when we left our dog with them for 3 days. he took a liking to both of them immediately and was very relaxed and happy when we collected him.we now feel totally confident to use them again in the future. Many thanks to you both.

    Having only left Rab with family when we go away, we thought Rab would not settle, seems we were wrong..... Rab seemed to enjoy his stay and was in very capable hands with Jacqui and Oli. I would happily recommend and use again, they are very close to us and my son, should there be an emergency.

    We left our 3 dogs with Jacqui and Oliver and they seemed to have a great time. They didn't even bark until we rung the door bell, usually they would as you got to the door, obviously were comfortable. Our old boy had a change in health the day we took them and Jacqui happily dealt with the extra bits that now needed to be done. My collie has. Few issues which we are dealing with at the moment and she happily dealt with them too. They all came home happy, can't ask for more
