We Love Pets

We will collect your dog at a time that suits you and take them to a safe, open space where they will enjoy a lovely walk with a member of the We Love Pets team and one or two other friendly dogs. All walkers are fully insured and trained in pet first aid.

A trusted, insured pet carer will pop in to visit your dog for company, play, interaction and anything else they need such as feeding, toileting and administering most medications as required.

Our cat sitters will visit your feline friends while you are away. They will take care of feeding and clean any food dishes, replenish water and provide company for your cat.

Our pet sitters will take care of pets large and small, feathered, furry or finned. Multi-pet households also catered for. A We Love Pets pet sitter will also take care of other little jobs while you are away such as bringing in mail and watering the plants – just ask.

During a puppy’s young life they need a lot of care and attention! If you can’t get home during the day We Love Pets can help. We will pop in for a puppy visit where we will give them play and company, as well as feeding and toileting. This will graduate to short walks after their vaccinations. Work full time? Ask about our Puppy Package.

At We Love Pets we are trained to look after the most exotic of pets! Snakes, spiders, lizards and more, we are here to help. A member of the We Love Pets team will take care of cleaning housing, feeding, checking temperatures and any other duties as necessary.

From cockatoos to chickens, we have your feathered friends covered! Our fully trained, trusted staff will take care of your birds in the form of pet visits or bird boarding.

Rabbits, hamsters, mice, gerbils, guinea pigs – we love them all! We will board your small animals with a fully trained pet boarder or come and take care of them in your own home – the choice is yours. Our experienced, pet-loving team will feed and care for your pets as well as clean any housing. We can even do little extra tasks while you are away, such as watering the plants – just ask.

Dog Walker, Pet Sitter and Dog Sitter Services for Thurrock

Shirley lives in the Thurrock borough with her Cockapoo Robbie. She grew up with animals and loves nothing more than dog walking around Tilbury and the surrounding villages. Her lifetime of pet ownership has provided her with the skills and experience to look after your pets. 

Shirley has completed her Basic Dog Handling and Training Skills course and is also City and Guilds qualified in dog walking, so you can rest assured that your pet is in very safe and knowledgeable hands! Shirley is also police checked, pet first aid trained and fully insured for that extra peace of mind.

Working with animals really is a dream come true for Shirley and she would love nothing more than to take your dog for a walk with plenty of fun and exercise. Our aim is to make each walk the highlight of your dog’s day, giving them a chance to play, socialise and explore new sights and smells.  We Love Pets never carry out pack walks to ensure your dog receives individual attention, supervision and care. We do pair dogs with another friendly dog to socialise and play with. 

Check out our Facebook page to see the pets having fun!

Why Choose Us?
Our dog walks are fun, safe and provide great exercise and mental stimulation for your dogs.
We walk our dogs in groups of no more than two or three to ensure our dog walkers can always respond to your pet.
All staff are pet first aid trained, insured and DBS checked for your peace of mind.
At We Love Pets we allow extra contingency time between walks to ensure your pet is settled and mud-free when we leave your home.

Booking Your Pet Care

Before you make your booking, we will arrange for a consultation to get to know your pet and talk through your usual pet care routine. At We Love Pets we try to keep things as consistent as possible and stick to your normal pet care practise.

Once we have gathered all of the information needed to ensure your pet has the best possible care with us, we will complete your booking.

We understand that all pets are different, so please feel free to use this time to let us know if there is anything specific your pets need – this may include things such as using particular commands or administering of medication. Please just ask – we are ready to help!

Terms of business

I can’t praise Shirley highly enough. She cat-sat for my moggy, Dave (my first time leaving him overnight – gulp) and provided THE BEST service. She took the time to bond with him and sent me daily photos and updates. She even made an additional visit at very short notice. I would recommend her to anyone (and so would Dave!).
