As the daughter of a Gamekeeper and now part of the extended Betts family.

I have always been surrounded by animals. I was 8 when I raised my first Labrador as its mum thought the runt was best left to die but I had other idea’s, looking after this tiny helpless puppy and sleeping next to it in a makeshift moses basket installed a great love for animals that has grown and grown.

I have looked after and raised almost every kind of domestic pet you can think of, from chickens and ducks to dogs, cats, ferrets, orphaned lambs and horses.

Betts pets started in 2014, I have been very fortunate to be recommended by many clients and to enable us to meet demand I now work with a small team of fantastic people. We operate a strict two hand rule where no more than two of us handle a client. This has ensured our services run smoothly throughout the year and gives us maximum flexibility whether you’d like a daily set walk or an ad hoc arrangement. You know who will be in your home and with your pet and we know you and your pet well so we can tell if anything isn’t quite as it should be.

We offer a range of high-quality bespoke pet and home services, suitable to your exact needs. I can look after your pet during the day or evening, or while you’re on holiday, dog-walk, I also offer luxury dog home boarding and dog holidays.

We take great care with your precious pets and when dog walking will only allow dogs off a lead in safe and secure locations and with your written consent. I have access to private land, ensuring your dog can exercise in a large, but secure open space. Our dog walks can be private 1-2-1 or in a smaller group, usually 3.

At my home I have an enclosed dog play area that is 2400 sq meters. This is useful for recall testing, playing frisbee and socialisation. We do occasionally offer play dates by appointment which can be useful for younger dogs.

We are fully insured and operate a SafeKey system, ensuring your property’s security at all times and I use added common sense when you’re away from home by only using an un-marked vehicle. I am CRB checked and have been trained in animal first aid and am licensed by West Berkshire council to board dogs.

Call or email me today to discuss how I can take care of your family’s most-special non-human member.
