Here at House My Pet, we’re passionate about animals, their care and their welfare. Our carefully selected dog carers can be matched with your dog for a true home from home experience. Our talented team are fully vetted, experienced, mature, reliable and professional. We know how hard it can be to find a trustworthy, dependent expert who can love your dog as much as you do, so we’ve gone the extra mile to find the very best providers possible and make them easily accessible.
We rigorously check that all of our pet carers have the correct Pet Business insurances in place and required supporting documents, such as DBS checks & licenses. Our dog care specialists are able to create solutions around your needs and help you to find the right individual care for your dog.
Our Dog Care Services
Dog Walking Service
Our pet carers will take on the responsibility of walking your dog for the required length of time. Whether you’re at work, aren’t able or can’t find the time, we will offer you a custom solution to suit your lifestyle and schedule, and dog’s needs.
Dog/Puppy Pop In Visits
Help your dog overcome separation anxiety with our pet carers. Do you work long hours or are away from home all day? Our pet carers can come to your home and check up on your dog or puppy throughout the day. Whether your companion requires some play time, cuddles and affection, the toilet or maybe a snack, we can take care of them.
Dog Sitting Service
While you are away, one of our pet carers can come over and stay overnight at your home. Dog sitting is the perfect solution for dogs that are best kept at home because they are more comfortable in their own environment and prefer familiarity. Dog sitters allow for your pet to stay in familiar surroundings while following their normal routines.
This is especially good for disabled dogs who may have a vision impairment or immobility issues, and it is also a great option for dogs who have behavioural issues such as separation anxiety. For an added bonus, your house will look occupied while you’re gone; there will even be someone there to water the plants and pick up the post.
No matter where you are, our dog sitters will be happy to travel to your home and take care of your pooch. This makes it an ideal solution if you don’t have sitters in your local area. After all, it’s all part of today’s sharing economy!
Dog Home Boarding Service
Give your dog a holiday with our home boarding services. They will be given company by one of our carers while enjoying all of their usual home comforts. With home dog boarding, your dog will be cared for individually; their routine will stay maintained and all of the instructions that you give us will be carried out.
They’ll be given the luxury of plenty of walks, playtime with their favorite toys and they will also stick to their regular food and feeding bowls. We recommend packing them a bag full of their favourite toys and treats so that they feel as comfortable and happy as possible while in another environment.
While away, stay rest assured that your dog will enjoy constant human company. It’s a far cry from many kennel environments that can sometimes cause dogs to become lonely and anxious. Instead, they will be given dedicated attention throughout.
All of our UK home boarders hold a license by their local authority. A license means that your boarder has had their home inspected and only cares for a limited amount of dogs at a time (you can opt in for solo care in our matchmaking system). Our boarder’s meet DEFRAs animal welfare requirements and also comply with all safety requirements.
Dog Day Care Service
Daycare is the perfect option for giving your dog additional enrichment during the day. Our carers can also offer puppy daycare that’ll give your puppy extra socialization while they are young. This service can be offered in your home or in the carers home. It is personalized to suit your dogs needs, and it is a much better alternative to crowded commercial dog daycare centers.
Dog Wedding Chaperone Service
Is your puppy bringing your wedding rings down the aisle? Our pet carers can accompany, care for and manage your dog during the big day so that nobody has to keep an eye on them, and you can relax knowing that they are in safe hands.
Post-Surgery Care Dog Sitting
The first week after surgery is the most crucial in your pet’s recovery. We understand how challenging post surgical care can be; especially when your pet’s require supervision and care, but you are struggling to find the time due to other commitments. However, there’s no need to worry because we can help.
For instance, any medications needed will be administered exactly to your instructions, and your pet’s condition will be monitored in case of any deterioration. Your animal’s health will be constantly kept an eye on and professional help will be sought out immediately and when necessary. Any emergencies will be quickly and professionally dealt with by one of our professional carers; you can stay relaxed knowing that your dog is in the best quality care whilst you are away from home. Please discuss your requirements with your designated match for an evaluation on your particular needs and for a quote.
Medical Administration For Your Dog
Our carers are skilled in administering oral medication, insulin injections and subcutaneous fluids. Physical therapy, nail trims, ear cleaning and eye drops or applying ointment can also be carried out by one of our skilled carers. Each service provider specialises and is knowledgeable in the medical needs of a pet, and they will consciously monitor all signs of illness and pain.
Dog Disability Care
We have pet carers who are professionally qualified to attend to your dog’s needs if they have a disability. Whether we are taking care of a dog in a wheelchair, or one that requires regular bladder emptying, we will be there to assist.
We have been known to care for dogs that have missing limbs, paraplegic dogs, elderly dogs with medical problems, dogs with limited mobility, epileptic dogs and deaf or blind dogs. Not only can we assist them with their general tasks, but we give them the quality love, care and attention that they need too. Please give us detailed information about what is normal for your pet, and the kind of care that they require to stay healthy and happy while you’re away.
Behavioural Problem Care
Our pet carers are experienced with a wide variety of behavioural issues such as separation anxiety and reactiveness, and if able, will undergo training with them and encourage positive behaviour. When searching for a carer on our site, be sure to tick this box if your dog needs that extra care.
Dog Care Match-Making
Whether it’s dog walking, dog sitting, home dog boarding, dog daycare, dog wedding chaperoning or any other special requirements that your dog needs, we guarantee that we have the perfect person for your pet. We understand the importance of pairing your dog with someone that you can trust, and someone that you feel confident in when giving your best friend the right care. We are the only business that offers a pet match-making service with professional, experienced and licensed carers who deliver a home from home experience.
We ensure that each and every dog is matched with a dog carer whose skills and knowledge are specifically tailored to your dog’s abilities and needs. We understand that every dog has its own personality, its own routine and its own level of required care that is needed, which is why our unique values and guarantee gives owners the assurance that we have carefully considered who cares for their pooch.
Since setting up this proposition, we have received tremendous feedback that has confirmed that this level of consideration and dedication is highly beneficial to dogs and their owners. Dog match-making is especially favourable for dog owners as they are given the confidence that their companion couldn’t be in better hands.
Each and every one of our qualified pet carers has a history of dog ownership, meaning they know what it takes to provide the best level of care possible to any dog that they are matched with. In terms of your dog’s characteristics, we understand that a dog can feel more comfortable with certain personalities and even genders, which is why our match making tools, when selecting, will find the right match for you.
We want your pet to feel as confident, happy, relaxed and complacent as possible, and we are confident that our dog matching services will guarantee this. You can even arrange a meet and greet to gain that extra peace of mind that the carer and your dog are suited.

If requested, your pet carer will send regular updates and photos of your pet – we know that you’ll be missing them after all!
