Pet Sitting

Pet Sitting at home is an ideal choice over traditional kennelling services where Pooch and Pony come and visit your animals in their own familiar surroundings at home whether you are on holiday, stuck at work, have an appointment or family emergency or just want a night away.


Pooch and Pony provide professional and reliable pet care for your furry family members. We are available to care for your pets  365 days a year and can provide same-day service if you are stuck at work or won’t be able to make it home after a night out so don’t hesitate to ask!

I care for all animals big and small but my main clientele would be equines big and small! Don't just settle for anyone to care for your horses. They are big and they are expensive and they are your pride and joy. It only makes sense to hire a pet sitter that has extensive experience with horses!. Not only have I done animal nursing but I have done equine nursing also which makes me a great candidate for those horses that need medicating or bandage changes.
