Dog Walking and Pet Services
We're small enough to care but big enough to cope

About us

We Love Pets (WLP) was set up in Newbury and Hungerford (Berkshire) in 2007. The idea was to provide a professional dog walking and dog boarding service for customers busy at work or away on holiday. WLP have looked after thousands of dogs since it was established 9 years ago.

We have teams of friendly people in different areas and each team operates under the same ethos: to provide an excellent service to clients. All of our managers are animal lovers, with experience and qualifications in animal care.

We’re small enough to care but big enough to cope.

Our aim is to provide you with excellent pet care. We can offer care 7 days a week, even when your regular pet carer is on holiday or poorly.

We are truly passionate about pets, extremely reliable, trusted and with a history of great service and five star testimonials.

They have the most comprehensive insurance cover available to Pet Carers including care and custody of animals, public liability, non-negligent cover, third party liability, property damage, employer’s liability and key cover. This means that in the unlikely event of an emergency we are covered for every eventuality.

Your pets are in good hands – there are vet nurses, dog trainers and dog behaviourists on the team. This means that if you need help with training your dog we can provide you with some tips and work with you.

Everybody who works for us are police checked and vetted. This provides you, and us, with the reassurance that all of our team has a clean background. We also carry out background checks and work references.

Our vehicles aren’t marked, so it isn’t obvious that you aren’t at home. We take data protection very seriously and adhere to the regulations of the Act. All of your personal information is kept completely confidential. We also never put personal or address details with door keys.

Many dog walkers walk large groups of dogs at one time. We don’t do this. We want your dog to experience a fun filled walk whilst under constant supervision, without being bombarded by lots of big dogs!

We ask the local authority to inspect each home-boarder and provide them with a license to board dogs. This provides peace of mind that every home-boarder meets strict requirements, including adhering to health and safety policies, a pet friendly home and safe enclosed garden.

We have 24-hour access to emergency vet care. All of our managers have built up great relationships with their local vet. Whilst we will always take your pet to your own vet, if required, we do have the contingency of a close by emergency service.

We send all of our owners, managers and key staff on a pet first aid training day. This means that they can act quickly and effectively if your dog cuts a paw or has an accident.

When we walk dogs we allow extra time (in addition to the walk) to provide fresh water, towel downs and some fuss. We allow twenty minutes for cat visits to give us time to clean, refill feed and water bowls and check on your pets. You are more than welcome to book more time if your pets like a good cuddle.

A massive thank you to Lorraine for looking after Honey so well these last 2 weeks. Honey has been very happy with her walks and we could tell she had fun and new adventures each day by the amount of snoring she did when we got home. We would recommend Lorraine to anyone in the local area and Honey will happily give a “woof-testimonial”  if any further proof was needed.
