How much does a Dog Walker/ Pet Sitter cost?

Of course price is an important factor to consider when your searching for a Dog Walker or Pet Sitter. It is, however, also important to consider a number of other factors when choosing the right Dog Walker or Pet Sitter for you. For example:

Are they a well established, fully insured business?

who are you letting into your home - are they dbs checked ?

are they licensed? (dog boarders/ day care must be licensed)

How will you know they've been?

What happens if they are sick or away

What can I expect from Simply the Pets?

Simply the Pets has been in business for over 10 years so you can rest assured that you will be dealing with a professional and reputable organisation. With us you can expect reliability, consistency and accountability. We are fully insured and all of our walkers & sitters hold clear DBS checks. In the event of absence we have systems in place to ensure your pet never misses a walk or visit.

Included as part of our service all clients have access to our online scheduling software where they can:

  • Request and cancel bookings
  • View their schedule to ensure we have the correct services booked in for you
  • Tell us about your pets requirements
  • View your past invoices and payments

We love letting our clients know what fun their dog has had on their walk or what cuddles their cat has enjoyed during their visit so regular updates and photos are sent directly through our software to our clients to keep them updated! There is no need for you to worry that your dog hasn't been walked or pet hasn't been visited as all services are checked in and out of via GPS so we can tell when services have begun and are completed.
