About Welland Valley Pet Care

I started Welland Valley Pet Care back in June 2016 to meet the growing demand for dog walking and pet care in the Market Harborough area.  I pride myself on providing a professional, reliable and trustworthy service at a competitive price.

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 specialise in one-to-one dog walks providing 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. I currently own a Cocker Spaniel called Dale and a rabbit, called Wesley.

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 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. 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!
