Simply the Pets

We do more than just walk dogs!

August 2020

This image was recently shared by the founder of the Pet Professional Network , of which we are proud members, and it really resonated with us.

We are most definitely not "just dog walkers."


This isn't a hobby job for us.


We KNOW it's not easy.


In fact, it's any thing but a walk in the park (excuse the pun!)


We are incredibly passionate about what we do and take the responsibility of caring for your Pets very seriously. Ultimately trusting us with your pet along with giving us access to your home is huge and we are sure you wouldn't just trust anyone!


At Simply the Pets we are:


* Fully insured
* DBS checked
* Kind & Ethical
* First aid trained
* Highly experienced
* Knowledgable about dog behaviour and body language
* Follow a strict code of conduct
* Totally dedicated to the job that we do


Since lockdown has eased we've seen a number of new start ups. Now please don't get us wrong, we are totally supportive of people following their passion, doing it for the right reasons and going the right way about it.


However, when we frequently see these phrases on applications for our own dog walking vacancies...

"I want to do something stress free"

"I just want to cuddle dogs all day"

"I like dogs, not people"


Or, new set ups believe that they don't need the things we mention above because it's just a bit of extra cash, we can't help but be concerned about how easy people assume being a dog walker is, and the possible impact this may have on the opinions of 'professional dog walkers' from the general public.


At STP you won't find the cheapest service in the area BUT we believe in quality and aim to give you the absolute BEST! And in doing so we believe that we are giving our clients the best value for money.
