Pet Care Services

Dog Walking

We offer dog walking on a regular or ad hoc basis. This may suit those in full time employment, and those who do not want to leave their pets at home during the day. Walking and exercising your dog will greatly improve their fitness and mental wellbeing, and is essential to a healthy dog’s lifestyle. We will ensure that we provide a safe and fun environment for your dog to enjoy.

We aim to cater to every schedule, so please get in touch to see if we can help. We will walk your dog in carefully selected groups of up to eight, also giving them a chance to play and socialise.

At Pitcher’s Pet Carers we understand that all our lives are getting ever busier, with our time schedules stretched to the maximum. We know that caring for your pets can take up a lot of time and energy – let us help by sharing the responsibility with you.

We offer this service locally within the Swindon area in Wiltshire, but may be able to take your dog to a specified location if preferred, so please just ask!

Cat Care

We provide a flexible service for our clients whilst you are away. Whether you’re at work, on holiday, or any other reason, we are sure we can help. Cats are much happier being left in their own home rather than a cattery, meaning they can relax while you are away. They can play with their favourite toys, nap in their favourite spot, and get the cuddles they need with our comprehensive service.

We can continue with their normal care routine, feeding and cleaning, whilst also providing that extra bit of TLC. We can visit once or twice a day, plus administer any medication if required. This is a real alternative to catteries, taking away all the stress of removing the cat from their familiar surroundings.

We also act as a security measure by picking up post, opening and closing curtains, watering plants; all to give that lived in look when you’re not at home. This gives you that extra peace of mind that your pet and your property are in very safe hands.
