Winter viral Pests

We hope all the winter viral pests have finally left the building! Some of our pet sitters and here at the office too, we have been hit with the Aussie flu this year.

This is our sitter Bob having a nap after a long walk, plus a surprise cuddle from Maya the Labrador, I wonder if she managed to slip in along side without waking him!

Bob managed to escape the winter illnesses this year, maybe because of all the walking with his four legged friends, lots of fresh air could be the key or maybe you are just very strong and healthy Bob!

As you see from the photo we are currently having a big sort out in the office; Polly promised she would help, hmmm!

See you again in March, when Spring will definitely be well on its way.


As 2017 is coming to a close and the colder weather is well on its way, please remember our little friends the garden birds.



Fat balls and peanuts, being the food to keep them warm, as well as the seed mix.

Look at this little robin who visited our office, to remind us not to forget him in the coming months.

We have been reading up on microchips and identity tags here in the office; we are all aware that, as of April 2016 our dogs must, by law be chipped, the fine for not complying being £500.

However, we none of us were aware that it is still a legal requirement, to have an identity disc on your dog’s collar, when in public.

Below is what the law states.

Every dog while in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on the collar or on a plate or badge attached to it.

A little bit of info, for those who may not be aware that microchipping alone is not enough; never, of course put your dog’s name on the tag.

We thought you would like to see our lovely pet sitter Anita out walking with one of her four legged friends, Tank the Newfoundland, a truly gentle giant!

See you again in 2018
