SIMPLY THE PETS
Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at our site! I founded Simply the Pets in 2008 after deciding to turn my lifelong passion for animals into a career. At 19 I was diagnosed with, and had treatment for, Hodgkin's Lymphoma . During this time I realised that I had to spend my working life doing something I loved and felt passionate about, so in 2008 Simply the Pets was born & I haven't looked back since!
Along with over 10 years of professional, hands-on experience working with your pets I hold a certificate in Dog First Aid and am a City & Guilds qualified Dog Groomer.
I pride myself on running a business with whom you can depend and rely upon. Your animal is not seen as a commodity - we see them as an important member of your family and because of that we will welcome them into our lives as if they were our own.
We understand how important your pet is to you, but also understands that life can sometimes stand in the way of you being able to provide all the time and attention they require. So if you're at work all day, have had a change in circumstances or are not as fit as you once were, we're here to help.
We look forward to hearing from you!

I've always had a love for animals, and have always dreamed of having a career where I get to spend every day doing what I love, being outdoors and not stuck in an office. Getting to spend every day with wagging tails and loveable pooches is perfect for me. I have a 14 year old shihtzu at home, who pretty much sleeps all day and laps up attention, so it's also nice to meet such a variety of breeds and personalities each day!
I’m from a family of animal lovers! Since I can remember I have had passion for caring for animals and wildlife. I had a lovely German Shepherd named Missie for 9 years which I adored and spoilt rotten! I’ve also had rabbits and budgies growing up. I am delighted to be surrounded by dog's again, but the best part is how rewarding it is seeing them having fun with their buddies!
Those who know me will tell you I’m the “crazy dog lady” and I’m very proud of that title! I love our furry friends, I adore all dogs great and small. To have the pleasure of working with these pups is just a delight!
I have a gorgeous Cavalier who is my pride and joy, he’s an absolute cuddle monster.
I grew up in a household where there were always cats and dogs, along with various other small pets. I currently have 2 Romanian rescue dogs, Louis and Bella, 2 guinea pigs and a number of marine fish. Working with STP has given me that opportunity and for me, there couldn't be a more fulfilling or rewarding role!
Hi! I'm Kate and I'm a Pet Sitter for Simply the Pets. I have grown up around dogs and cats - their love is unconditional and they are always pleased to see you. I have a wonderful staffie at home called Tia, she is a rescue dog, she looks after my whole family, always welcoming us with her special wiggle! Looking after your pets is a privilege and a pleasure. I look forward to going to work each day!
I have always owned pets currently 2 cats - Boy and George ! ( Named by my children I add !! ) I used to walk dogs as a schoolgirl and now many years later working with STP has brought me back in touch with many adorable much loved pups again. I find myself looking forward to the next walk and the next… excited wagging - fresh air, long country walks can’t beat it!
I've had a passion for animals/welfare since a young age, looking after many furry cuddly creatures including cats, Guinea pigs, hamsters and fish. Currently I have a house rabbit named pawsy. I have previously volunteered at the RSPCA and now working with STP has allowed me to fulfill my ambition of working with animals (very lovable ones) and to be a part of helping clients and their loved ones is just awesome.
What better “office” could one work in and could it be possible to have any better colleagues than your 4-legged loved ones? I’ve always lived in a house full of cats and, since the last one departed we have had Alfie, a shih tzu, for the last 10 years. Any dog envy is finally in the past as I get to spend some lovely time with such a wide variety of lovely dogs. Not that Alfie isn’t lovely too
