Who are we?
Established in 2005 by our Founder and Director Sarah Marris, Pets in the City is a professional, reliable, trustworthy and friendly dog care business. Our focus is purely on the dogs we care for, providing them with the mental and physical stimuli needed for a dog’s happiness and wellbeing. Whether you’re looking to use our services for just an occasional walk or on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis, we will endeavour to accommodate your needs.
Why Use Us?
Our business is about the love of dogs… it’s a lifestyle choice.
All our staff are CRB checked and have either worked with or owned dogs previously. They undergo a thorough training regime for at least a month prior to walking any of the dogs in our care by themselves, to ensure staff know and understand the character, personality, energy levels and behaviour traits of each individual dog.
Our focus when caring for dogs is to make sure they are happy, socialised, fully exercised and most of all loved. We don’t believe in leaving the dogs to their own devises by watching whilst they do their own thing, we are fully hands on playing games, running, having cuddles and generally getting involved (this can get mucky in the winter!). This helps to exercise the dog’s body and mind which is so important to a dogs happiness, particularly the more intelligent ones.
Please note we are one of the only dog care companies who are licensed and comply with the Animal Welfare Act of 2018 in our borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we have the highest grade licence achievable in the first year of obtaining a licence. Licence No 19/235420/01.
