Are you dog or cat?

To be honest, it doesn't really matter. Cats, dogs, hamsters and everything in between! We know your pets are your family and our 20 years of experience means they couldn't be in better or safer hands. Run by humans, plus some tech. For the love of pets.

What do we do? What don’t we do!

Why us?

Run by a great team of incredibly fussy humans! 

We do all the hard work for you.  We know what we’re looking for and only take the best (about 10%).

We check, train & monitor

We visit homes, we do the paperwork, we have comprehensive real world & online training and assessments. Sitters only do the job, if they’ve been trained by us!

Online booking, payments & tracking of visits

We use tech to help humans, not to replace them.  Book, pay and manage your petcare online. Or give us a call for a chat instead.

And we provide backup! 

Because we’re a team, you’ll never have to find emergency sick / holiday sitter backup again! We’ve got you covered!

The flexibility of Happy Hounds makes my life so much easier. I can ask them to walk my girls at a moments notice and they always come through.  The dogs go mad when any of the walkers arrive and they love their trips out.

The Happy Hounds team are absolutely fab. They take wonderful care of our fur-kid on his fun-filled daily frolics with his little, and large, furry mates. Des (George)

Happy Hounds love my dog Holly as their own and are reliable and totally trustworthy. Holly cannot wait to go out on her walks with her walker and dog friends. It is the highlight of her week! Claire (Holly)
