About Us

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at our site!

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 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 12 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 am currently also studying to become a Certified Canine Body Language Specialist.

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 understand 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 am crazy about animals! I’ve had animals since the age of 2 that have ranged from cats, exotic frogs to a 13 year old goldfish! I love animals so much that I even chose to pursue a college course in animal management when I was in education, i love my job and all the slobbery dog kisses it comes with. Doing what you love for a job makes it so much more worthwhile


I have worked in the animal industry for 16 years now and wouldn't change a thing! From veterinary nursing to Head Receptionist at a vets to Dog Grooming. I have found that animals are my world and bring nothing but joy into my life in so many ways. I have 3 family dogs, 9 cats and a very old bunny. I am so lucky to have a position at STP where I can continue my passion and knowledge with the four legged fur babies.


After many years in management in the construction industry I am indulging my love of animals, especially dogs, and keeping myself fit interacting and walking with your pets. I enjoy getting to know each dog's character - and the trust and affection they offer. Once I have finished work I then head out again with my beloved dog!


I am a huge animal lover and I have grown up around animals from the age of 3, from dogs and cats to farm animals. Animal care and welfare is something I always have and always will feel extremely passionate about. Besides from taking your gorgeous four legged babies out on adventures, I am continuing my education everyday to give me as much knowledge in animal care as I can possibly get! Dogs really are a womans best friend!


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!
