About Welland Valley Pet Care

I offer a fully insured and professional dog walking and pet care service throughout the locality of Market Harborough and the Welland Valley and am the only City & Guilds qualified dog walker in the area.  I am DBS checked and hold a valid first aid certificate.  I pride myself on providing a professional, reliable and trustworthy service at a competitive price. 


Specialising in one-to-one dog walks, I provide individual attention and walks bespoke for the dogs/clients needs.  I also offer group walks up to a maximum of two households. I understand the difficult decision of whom to trust with your pet and offer piece of mind whilst you aren't there.  At Welland Valley Pet Care all pets are treated as family! 

Having been bought up with dogs since birth, I have had the pleasure of sharing my home with other domestic animals too over the years, including rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils and cold water fish, not to mention a couple of tortoises. My working knowledge and experience of animals, spanning in excess of 20 years, has been obtained mainly through animal rescue centres, customer service and veterinary surgeries.  


Holding a degree in Animal Welfare & Management and City in Guilds Level 2 diplomas in Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, the Safe Use of Veterinary Medicines, Stockmanship & Welfare and Administration.  I am also fortunate to have a wealth of animal care qualifications, holding certificates in Pet First Aid, Micro-chipping and the Safe Use of Veterinary Medicines, to name but a few.  I regularly refresh, update and extend my knowledge through continued professional development (CPD) courses.  I carry a first aid kit for pets, a microchip scanner and am 'Dementia Friendly' trained.

As time has gone on, responding to demand, other pet services have been added to my portfolio and in addition a small, experienced team to help me during the busy periods. I hope that I provide all aspects of service to your pets daily needs, however please contact me if your need isn’t listed - I’m sure I can come up with a solution for you!
