Our Association is unique. As the largest Pet Care organisation in the UK we are involved primarily with the proper care of Pets and Property and we set the standards for the Pet and House sitting industries. We also represent our members at Local and National Government level, with particular interest in all legislation which affects the Petcare Industry and Animal Welfare in general. Over the past 18 years we have registered more than 8,000 petsitters throughout the country. Members offer a range of caring petsitting services while owners are away on holiday or at work etc.

Basic services are:

Firstly, Home Boarding; this means that you take your dogs/pets to the sitter where they will receive individual care and attention with all the comforts of home. (Petsitters will normally care for all domestic pets including small animals and birds).

Secondly, House/Pet sitting; this means that the sitter goes to your home and looks after your house and your pets. This is very useful for those who do not want to leave their home unattended, or for those who have a lot of pets.

Finally, Daycare for all pets, Home visits, or Dogwalking which is self explanatory and ideal for those who are out at work all day and need someone to visit their home during the day and to care for, feed or walk their pets; or to take their pets to the sitters home for a daycare service. Many members also offer extra services such as house checks, plant/garden care, mail forwarding etc. (Please note that Daycare services are NOT suitable if dogs are subsequently going to be left alone at night).

Members are REGISTERED and INSURED, and are required to abide by our Code of Practice and Terms and Conditions.

Thank you for looking after our rabbit Max in August. He was well looked after and the children and myself enjoyed receiving pictures of him in his big hutch. We will definitely use you again. Thanks again

Always use Christine to look after my two rabbits wether it's for a weekend away or a 2 week holiday. They are always very well looked after and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend :)

5 From Jemma on

Our 2 guinea pigs Bambi and Cho had a lovely holiday with Christine in early/mid August. The guinea pigs were very well looked after and cared for. It is very evident that Christine cares deeply for the animals, providing a clean and stimulating environment with lots of freshly picked dandelions. The guinea pigs did not loose any of their 'tameness', suggesting that they were very capably and lovingly handled. Thank you!

5 From The Fowler family on

Many thanks for a 5 star holiday for our bunny Lulu! Super accommodation and genuine loving care shown. Christine and Martin are so lovely and will happily accommodate your bunny's needs. Photo and email of Lulu happily enjoying her own holiday was lovely to receive whilst we were away. Will definitely take Lulu here again, she loved it! Thanks again.Tracy Wainwright and family.

Thank you so much for looking after out pet rabbit Smudge. I can see he has had as good a holiday as we have. The girls were delighted with the photo update whilst we were on holiday, what a lovely touch. Would definitely ask you again next time. Thank you. Karen lee

Dropped my beautiful bunnies off for 3 weeks over summer and they came home in such a wonderful mood! It was clear they had a lot of cuddles and handling whilst on their stay and the double hutch/bunny palace they stayed in was super spacious! Usually when they are away from home they get very grumpy however this time they were unbelievably content - even the feisty little lionhead sat still for a few minutes longer than normal to let me stroke her :) have just booked them in again as I am confident they really enjoyed their stay last time!

5 From Rachel on

My two house rabbits stayed here in October 2016. Christine and her husband made us all feel welcome. I was able to relax knowing they were well looked after. The facilities are extremely clean and well maintained. Thank you, we will be back!

5 From Cathy on

My 2 guinea pigs have recently boarded with Chris and Martin who are clearly big animal lovers. They stopped in a lovely big hutch and had great care and attention whilst we were away. Really pleased, would highly recommend and will definitely use again.

5 From Sandra on

We gave to take care for 2 weeks our 2 girl rats. We picked up happy and well cared for pets. Lovely and friendly people, they took very good care for our girls. Rats were not stressed at all, were clean with shiny coat, they were well fed and happy. Unhesitatingly recommend to pet owners and will definitely use again if the need arises. Thank you for taking such good care :-)

5 From Agnes on

Our rabbit has had a great long weekend with Home Comfort pets. They really listened to her routine and I was very confident that she would be comfortable and happy being looked after with them. I would definitely use their boarding services again, fantastic peace of mind. Many thanks

5 From Tamara Simpson on

Chris and Martin have been walking our dog Zack for nearly seven years now. They are amazing people who seem to form a bond with the pets. They are very flexible, reliable and concientious. Cannot commend them enough to care for our pets.

5 From Sayeed Ahmed on

Have used Christine several times now to look after my cats, while away on holidays. She is very friendly and the cats like her. She will spend some time with them, just giving them cuddle, and will also do other little jobs, like feed the hedgehogs, water flowers and put bins in/out etc. The cost is cheaper than a cattery and of the course the cats have the comfort of staying in their own home. Highly recommended

From carol rhodes on

I am thrilled with the level of care and attention that Chris & Martin give to my two rabbits. When I go on holiday I know that my rabbits are having a good holiday as well! They are kept in a very safe and clean environment which gives me peace of mind. Happy Bunnies, Happy Owners!! I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris & Martin's pet services.

5 From Barbara Wood on

We have been using Chris and Martins services for over 9 years. In that time they have always been reliable and I would have no hesitation in recommending them whatever pet service you need.

5 From Dave Carr on

Boarded my guinea pigs and Syrian hamster for a week. Christine was lovely and genuine - just the kind of person you want to leave your precious family pets with. On collection Christine knew so much about them, their likes, dislikes and routines that only spending time with them could do. Would definitely board here again.

5 From Selane on

Our two rabbits have just spent a week at Home Comfort Pets. Christine was lovely and really made it a home from home for them. There was plenty of space in the hutch and an outdoor run for them to play in. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Home Comfort Pets, and we will definitely use them again in the future.

5 From Hazel Phillips on

Before we went on Holiday we went to meet Christine at 'Home Comfort Pets' she was soooo lovely and friendly and is a genuine pet lover! It put our minds at rest that whilst we were on Holiday our "Hammy" would be well looked after and loved! We would highly recommend placing any pet with Christine, as she has lots of experience and it's obvious that she enjoys what she does. Thank you Auntie Christine for taking good care of me - lots of love, Hammy xxx

5 From Jenny & Dave on

Yesterday we collected our 2 guinea pigs from Chris and Martin who had them over Christmas while we were away. We would definitely recommend them. Both were friendly and welcoming upon arrival and were flexible with time of drop off and collection. The pigs were very well looked after, cage returned super clean, and Chris even sent me a photo of them enjoying their Christmas dinner of veggies! Will use them again and would recommend to others.

5 From Hayley & Tom on

Chris and Martin are really lovely people who know how to make a cat feel good! Our 2 like it when we go away as Auntie Chris & Uncle Martin make such a fuss of them!
