An Amazing Tail


Our Story

Welcome to Simply the Pets. If you're looking for a Dog Walker or Pet Sitter you can trust and rely on look no further! I founded Simply the Pets in 2008 after deciding to turn my lifelong passion for animals into a career. In 2005, at 19 years old, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. During my treatment and recovery I realised that I needed to spend my working life doing something I loved and was passionate about, so in 2008 Simply the Pets was born & I haven't looked back since!


Along with over 15 years of professional, hands-on experience working with your pets I am a Certified Canine Body Language and Puppy Specialist (Dog Training College), have Canine First Aid Training, have completed training courses with the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers), and am a City & Guilds Qualified Dog Groomer. I am also a member of the Pet Professional Network; a support organisation, dedicated to kind, ethical and trusted pet professionals.


To us, our job is not simply walking dogs, cuddling puppies or popping down some food for your kitty. We have invested in what we do so that you get the best, because your pets deserves the best!


Our team love animals, but pet care isn't about us, it's about providing our clients with a service they need that they can trust, depend and rely on. However, it is our passion which makes us constantly strive to be the best! That's why we're super proud to have been awarded Dog Walker  of the Year Award for London and the South East 2024/25.


We never see your pet as a commodity - we see them as an important member of your family and because of that we will welcome them into our STP family as if they were our own.


We look forward to hearing from you!
