What does a Bristol Cat Sitter Do?

A Bristol cat sitter will take care of your cat in your own home allowing your cat to stay in their own familiar surroundings. At Scamps & Champs Bristol a cat sitter will listen to you and provide a bespoke service according to your requirements. A Bristol cat sitter will visit your cat as many times as you would like during the day to feed your cat, change litter trays, give fresh water, and medications if required, with all the fuss and attention that your cat deserves.

Your cat sitter can also draw the curtains, turn your lights on and off, bring in any post and put the bins out giving your home that lived in look when you are not at home.

Using pet sitter software your cat sitter will send you updates at least daily. Photographs will be sent allowing you the comfort of knowing that your cats are being well looked after and are happy and relaxed at home.

How Many Times Will You Visit?

Your cat will be visited as many times during the day as you would like. If your cat is an inside cat, then you may feel once a day is enough. If your cat likes to go outside and hasn’t got access to a cat flap, we can visit in the morning and let your cat outside after feeding and then visit at teatime to let them back in again. If your cat is elderly or likes a lot of company more frequent visits may be preferable to check on your cat and give your cat companionship.

What if my cat doesn’t like new people?

A visit once a day may be enough if your cat is shy and timid. A cat sitter will always take the time to get to know your cat but only give affection if it is welcomed. If they don’t want affection or us to play with them, we will give them the space they need. We usually find that once they realise we are coming to feed them, they start to relax more and get used to us.

How Much Does A Bristol Cat Sitter Cost?

The price for cat sitting depends on how many visits and how many cats you have but visits start at £8.00 for 1-2 cats.

Dog Walking in and Around Bristol

Pet owners in Bristol are increasingly relying on dog walkers to walk their dogs while they go to out to work. There are many dog walkers in Bristol who can be seen if you go out into one of the many parks and open areas. Some “professional” dog walkers are benefiting from “pack walking” dogs which is not necessarily benefiting the dog.

As a pet owner who can you truly trust to care for your pet and what should you consider? Having your dog walked by someone who is reliable and trustworthy is of course a number one priority, but how can you be certain of this? How can you gain the peace of mind knowing that your dog is having the best care and is of course happy and relaxed?

Firstly, when you are looking for dog walking in Bristol be sure to look for someone who is insured and DBS checked. A professional dog walking company in Bristol may use a pet sitter app which enable the dog walker in Bristol to be GPS tracked and for the pet carer to interact with you and send photos within the app whilst dog walking in Bristol. This is as a premier service enabling you to know the whereabouts of your dog and to be reassured that your pet is receiving the very best care as you receive a photo and an update after each dog walk in Bristol. You can also ask for references from other clients who use the pet care services.

You can request an initial visit in order to meet the person. During this visit it’s important to see how they react around your dog and also importantly, how your dog reacts around them. Asking interview style questions to find out about them and their background is also important, after all you need to know as much as you can about the dog walking company, especially considering you may even be leaving the keys to your house with them. It’s also a good idea to listen to the type of questions they ask you, as this will give you a good indication as to how experienced they are in doing this type of thing.

There are many dog walkers in Bristol, some independent others part of a larger company. The benefits of using a larger company for your dog walking are that it’s more likely they will be adhering to all the Animal Welfare Legislation and as they will have the concern with brand protection, more-so than an independent, meaning that they will be wanting to provide you with the high quality pet care.

The other consideration of using a professional dog walking company in Bristol is that should the dog walker be taken ill or unable to walk your dog at the last minute, the company should be able to provide you with a backup dog walker.

That being said, if you are looking to become a dog walker in Bristol, contacting a professional dog walking company will be a good place to start as they will probably have clients ready and waiting for you. Contact us via our online form to check availability and make a booking.
