Dog Sitting or Boarding

Pals4Pets was the 1st pet sitting company in London. We are not like an agency who put you in contact with a sitter, we make the best selection for your pet and stay involved. Pals4Pets takes responsibility for all our sitters who have 24/7 support and  insurance. Our skill is in finding and matching you with the best sitter for your pet, drawing on 19 years experience.

Pals4Pets is the country's pioneer, starting in 1998, of one to one dog sitting and dog boarding in a home. This is the best service for your pet as an alternative to kennels. We specialise in one to one care but if you have more than one dog they will be kept together. Some dogs are happier with others and this can also be arranged.

None of our dog boarding sitters have full time jobs so your dogs will not be left on their own for extended periods, but will be walked and be given their full attention. We have no age limit, from puppies to seniors. We will cook fresh food, give medication, etc.

Alternatively, Pals4Pets can also provide a dog sitting service  in your home remaining for as many hours as you require.

If you need evening dog sitting this can be arranged so that you don't have to rush home from work.

All sitters are interviewed in their own homes, vetted, and given support and training. Pals4Pets sitters are insured and have a 24 hour helpline. Sitters who enter your home are also police checked.

Courteous, professional and above all happy kittens looked after by caring loving people. This was my first time, and I will most definitely use Pals4Pets again on my next trip abroad. Well done and thank you!read more

Highly recommend Pals4Pets as a professional and caring organisation to arrange care for your beloved pets in your absence. Mary and her family ensured that our aged cat had continuity of care. All his needs were met and more. Mary kept me updated as to his well being by emails & photos. I felt 100% happy at all times knowing that our cat was loved and cared for. Thank you to you all ?read more

Professional, Reliable, Personable and Responsible - this is how I would describe Pals4pets.
I have been using Pals4pets for over a year now. I found them shortly after moving to London. My 2 standard poodles (Angus and Jura) have been well taken care of since we have met Monica and her team.
Prior to finding this company, I had tried a number of other companies - and never had the confidence that I do with Pals4pets.
Pals4pets is an extremly professional organisation where your pets' welfare is of utmost importance. Every important detail (vet, food, exercise preference, schedule, likes and dislikes) is reviewed and recorded. They are reliable - I do not worry that my pet sitting arrangements might fall apart at the last minute.
We have used Monica to arrange sitters to come into our home to take the dogs for a walk, to supply a sitter to stay with the dogs in our own house and to arrange for the dogs to go to a sitter's home. All of the sitters have been personable and pleasant and good with the dogs.
I know that Monica is a responsible business owner and that she will make right any issues arising with my dogs while they are in the care of Pals4pets.

I moved to the UK about a year ago, and had difficulty finding a good, reliable dog sitter for my two adorable, but needy, dogs on a moments notice as my job often requires. Then a colleague recommended Pals4Pets, and they have been amazing! Not only is Pals4Pets flexible, quickly responding to my ever changing schedule, but my dogs receive excellent, excellent care. Jeremy/Nicola are amazing about keeping me informed AND ensuring my return is imminent before they leave so my pups are not alone for too long. Thank you Pals!read more

I love Pals 4 Pets. They are fantastic, particularly Julia, who looks after my cats as if they were her own.
I would be lost if I didn't have this service and I can leave for work and holiday and know that my cats are in the best of hands!

I have been using Pals4Pets for a number of years. I have been able to leave my dog with the same sitter and am happy knowing my dog is well cared for while I am away. Other sitters have been available so I know there is always a back-up. I am happy to recommend more

I could not have hoped to have found such a wonderful company to care for my friends' cat when they both went into hospital. They were spectacularly helpful, incredibly efficient and deeply caring both through the very traumatic time of the hospital stays and then when both of my friends died and a new, permanent home was needed. As well as this, Pals4Pets made what has been an awful time much easier, because I could not have asked for the cat, Butterfly, to have been in a more loving and nurturing home. It was the only company I could find who did not leave animals by themselves for any length of time - this was critical for me. I got an update picture each day when I told the company that it was the highlight of my friend's day after her husband died - this was not something I asked for. All in all, I am incredibly grateful and would use Pals4Pets again in a more
