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

Who are we?

We are a Husband and Wife team 48 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 Asro Turf. The dogs can now play outside in all weathers without getting mucky.

5% of the price you pay will be donated to the Dogs Trust, its a charity organisation who's work is very close to our hearts. When you book with us you'll be helping dogs less fortunate than yours and ours.

In our first quarter of providing this service we've donated £96.50 to the Dogs Trust. Your booking will help us increase that figure.

We're proud to support Dogs Trust.

    Nelly had a fantastic time at Alan and Janet's. First time staying there and she was comfortable right from the off. Received some lovely photos of Nelly and 'the pack' on their walk. Simple, effective, convenient, cost-effective, and reliable service... would recommend and will definitely use again!

    Xara loved her stay with Alan and Janet and we had complete confidence in them from the moment we met them and their dogs for an initial meet and greet. They are lovely, experienced, professionals who really care about dogs and we highly recommend them to others .
