Many dog’s fret in boarding kennels due to the confined pens they are locked in for most of the day, the lack of human contact and the excessive amount of loud barking they are exposed to. Placing dogs into boarding facilities can cause undue stress and anxiety for both pet and owner, this is where A1 Animal Care can help.
Our Dog Sitting Service offers a kinder alternative to boarding kennels. Your dog will stay in its own home and enjoy the comfort of familiar sights, sounds and smells. Staying in their usual home environment and keeping their daily routine will help reduce the potential of undue stress.
We will visit your dog at home, so he/she can stay in its own bed with the home comforts it is used to, whilst maintaining your dogs normal daily routine.
We will feed and water, walk, fuss and cuddle your dog as you would do yourself. Our service is tailored to each dog and owners individual needs. We will also update you on how your dog is doing via text message giving you total piece of mind.
You can rest assured that your dog is being looked after to the highest standard by experienced dog owners but most of all total animal lovers. Every dog we care for becomes part of the A1 Animal Care family and treated as an individual, not just another customer.
Having done voluntary work at Veterinary Centres means we are experienced and competent at administering medication orally or diabetic insulin injections, should your animal be on such medication from your vet.In addition, we can also bring in mail, put out rubbish bins, open and close curtains, water plants and turn lights on and off. Your home will generally have that ‘lived in’ look during your absence, which provides the bonus of heightened security for your premises whilst you are away. We also use unmarked vehicles to increase security to your home.
An initial consultation visit is made in your home before confirmation of a booking. This consultation is free of charge. This visit allows us the opportunity to meet your dog and for your dog to meet us, also to discuss the level of care your dog needs, go through their daily routine and answer any questions you may have. We will also bring with us our insurance policy and documents, CRB/ Police Check, animal first aid certificates and contactable references from our many happy customers.
