Pet Care in Reigate

Scamps and Champs Pet Care Reigate the first few months

Where does the time go, I am sitting here on a very sunny Sunday afternoon 24/02/2019 in Reigate thinking what a difference a year makes.  

This time last year the beast from the east was on its way and I was facing the toughest decision of my life in knowing I was going to have to put my beloved Charlie dog to sleep, we said goodbye to him on the 28th February 2018. This was after a terrible 2 years in which I lost my very dear friend John to cancer he was only 39. I then lost my other springer spaniel Jakey, then, a  few months later , in the May of 2017 I lost my dear dad and in July 2018 I also lost my brother. All of these sudden and massive life changing events!

Well a year on with the sun shining, I am a few months into setting up Scamps and Champs pet care Reigate and it’s been a rollercoaster of a learning curve and we haven’t even scratched the surface! The main focus has been on building my team and I think we have found a really great nucleus and a couple have been introduced on Facebook namely Jennie who is providing our pet care service in Dorking and surrounding areas.

Jennie is a zoology graduate and has animal experience that most of us could only dream of. Having spent time in Africa as part of her degree. I also have Tracy who lives in Lower Kingswood and is providing pet care in Reigate and Redhill at the moment but as soon as we get business over “her side of the M25” I am sure she will be happy to cover that. Tracy’s love of animals is obvious to see and she grew up around dogs with her dad breeding spaniels so she has experience of training and handling the most excitable of hounds!

The latest recruits are Kimberley who lives in Reigate who has already stepped in to cover some of our clients’ requirements and has a huge amount of pet care experience with her previous work with animal shelters and has a fantastic knack of stopping those dogs from pulling!

I also have Andrew who for a main job is a magician ( but he will make sure your pets don’t disappear! He grew up with all sorts of pets too many to mention but his kind loving nature is there for all to see. There are some very recent recruits too and I will introduce these as soon as I can!

For your peace of mind, all of our pet care team in Reigate are fully insured and policed checked.

I couldn’t have done any of this without the support of my family especially my long suffering wife Caroline and my daughter Jessica and of course not forgetting our new dog Bonnie who is now 9 months, talking of time flying.

And with that I want to enjoy some of the nice weather so with my daughter in her bike gear and my wife in her running gear I will be catching them up with Bonnie for a walk to Reigate Heath to wear ourselves out! Might even stop for a drink at the famous extremely dog friendly Skimmington Castle!
