Alan & Janet, dog sitter in SHROPSHIRE
About Alan & Janet

Who are we?

We are a Husband and Wife team 49 years old, I'm Alan, semi retired former professional search dog handler. I've had dogs all my life as pets for companionship and exercise as well as handling dogs professionally to a very high standard in my former career, therefore as you'd expect I'm well versed in all aspects of care for dogs including first aid. I'd say I was probably a born dog walker, I'm never happier than when I'm out with my dogs. My Wife is Janet, we've been together since our teens always had dogs and also being the wife of a dog handler she's picked up a lot over the years and is very sensitive to a dogs needs.

We can offer you a tailored service to meet your needs and instructions. Ever taken your dog to kennels and thought the proprietors don't really listen to anything you tell them about your dog. Like your best friend is just stuck in a cage for a week or two, fed and kept alive? Makes you feel guilty doesn't it. You're away on a well deserved holiday but your buddy's in jail. Well not with us, we won't take more than two dogs at a time and will cater to their individual needs and yours this means, we are able to give your dog the love and attention he or she needs.

Work long hours or are incapacitated. I'll walk your dog/s to your instruction. From a walk on the lead to healthy exercise play and reward led training.

We've recently replaced the lawn in our fully enclosed garden with Astro Turf. The dogs can now play outside in all weathers without getting mucky.

    Excellent sitters! Beau really enjoyed his stay. Janet and Alan are true dog lovers and made my dog feel at home. I would definitely recommend them. When we got home Beau was very quiet for a few days as he missed his friends Sheldon and mags. Hopefully he will meet up with them again when we book our next holiday!

    A big thank you to Alan and Janet, I felt very confident leaving in leaving Milly and Otto in their capable hands. It was lovely to receive a daily update and would definitely recommend their services.
