    Hi, we live in Putney and use Acres4dogs who have been very reliable and lovely people too. They are a bit expensive at £40 per day but pick up around 8am and return dog at around 4-430pm. In our case, they have the side gate code and so can let themselves in easily and collect dog from garden so I don't have to be in when they call.

    Thanks - yes £40 seems high but like all things you tend to get what you pay for - hopefully it's a wonderful service. I'll check it out when the great day comes (of beginning a new job).

    I have a small ten year old dog who has been fortunate enough not to have been in kennels. Its not always possible to rely on family and friends so I was looking for a local recommendation for someone who looks after dogs in their own home. Many thanks

    Hi there. Thanks for posting your message. I have linked your search to another topic which has several suggestions for dog carers who might be able to help you. Hopefully, this will give you some useful ideas to start with.

    Thank you Sarah, just noticed there was already a post on this subject after I'd already submitted!

    It depends where you live and what kind of dog you have, but a friend of mine runs Wimbledon Pet Nannies with her mother. She owns a gorgeous and tiny rescue Cavalier Spaniel herself and has looked after my Cavalier (who adores her) in the summer and for odd days. She and her mother are lovely people and very genuine dog lovers and the dogs have access to a decent-sized garden and are walked on Wimbledon Common. I know they are reasonably selective about what dogs they will take on as they are not keen on ones that bark a lot but your dog sounds easy going and placid so do google them. Caroline.

    Hi - looking for a nice local person to mind two pets - 3 year old Westie + an 11 year Lab. Both impeccably behaved. We typically go away three of four times a year for a week or two at a time. 

    Suggest £150 a week for the pair of them - we provide all food, blankets, nighttime reading :-). They only need light exercise and are lovely companions, and my daughter does say Rory, The lab, is the most handsome dog in the world

     

    Thanks

    Hi Brian

    I thought it could be helpful to link you to an existing topic all about pet care. Hopefully, this might offer you some ideas and perhaps some of the other RHC members will have some suggestions for you too. If this doesn't give you your solution, please do post again.

    Many thanks

    Dear Brian,
    we would be delighted to help. My daughter (16) must ask me on a daily basis if we could have a dog and currently volunteers to do dog walking for neighbours and has also worked at the local animal hospital. Your dogs will be very well looked after and I work from home so they would have company.
    Kind regards
    Joanna
