Pet Chums provides various services, all tailored to meet your personal needs. Please find below details of dog walking, cat/pet feeding, pet transport & dog boarding. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
We provide a quality, personal, reliable & trustworthy service; always aiming to accommodate your personal needs. If you need a regular daily/weekly walk while you’re at work, or a couple of visits if you’re out for the day, we will take your dog(s) for a quality walk & make sure when you come home, you have a happy, content & tired dog!
We can either walk your dog individually or in a group, but it will never be more than 4, as this is what we are insured for & is what we feel is the maximum number we can have complete control of & can clean up after.
We are registered & insured with the National Association of Registered Petsitters & can provide references from existing clients if required.
I offer home from home boarding that is independently insured with Clivertons and fully licenced through Epping Forest Council. I know that feeling of concern when you book a holiday or a trip away for a few days. Instead of feeling a burden, asking friends or family, I offer an alternative to kennels, giving a personal home from home stay.
Your dog will feel at ease as a member of the family in our house. Plenty of love, attention and walks, as well as anything I can do to maintain their normal routine. I will also send regular updates, pictures and video to you during their holiday with us to keep in touch.
I have many years of experience with all breeds of dogs including elderly and will always carry out an initial face to face meeting and introduction, to get a profile of likes/dislikes or any special requirements such as medication or dietary needs.
I generally like to do an initial trial overnight stay, to make sure everyone is happy and to introduce the new surroundings. This can be arranged for a weekday or a weekend stay.
P.S Don’t be surprised if you experience a bit of sulk from your dog when you return.
Cat feeding & Home visits
We offer a pet feeding service for your cat, rabbit, guinea pigs, birds, fish, degus, chickens, or if you simply require some house security when you are away from home, we will be there when you can’t. We can provide you with as many visits as you require, covering holidays, days out, hospital stays, whatever you need, all without the upheaval for your beloved pets & they can stay in their familiar & comfortable surroundings.
Our daily visits will include the following:
- Feeding pets, washing out bowls, and providing fresh water. (especially important for some cats)
- Clean out cages/litter trays
- Cuddles & lots of TLC (again very important for some cats!)
- Brushing if required/cleaning eyes
- Giving any necessary medication
- House security includes – picking up post/deliveries, taking the rubbish out & returning bins to normal place, closing/opening curtains, turning lights on/off.
- Watering any plants in or out
- Turning radios on/off

We will always leave your property clean & tidy. You are also more than welcome to text/call/email me to see how your pets are, many clients do & I’m more than happy to provide a daily report for you!
