About Ebony Pet Services

I started Ebony Pet Services on 1st January 2015, and I am pleased to say that I still work for some of the original clients who came on board back then. I currently have around 30 active clients.

I love that I can share my lifelong love of animals with those who use my services. My aim is to provide a quality service for pet owners who lead busy lives and sometimes need an extra pair of hands to ensure their beloved animals are cared for in the best possible way. I give my personal attention to each and every pet that I attend, whether that is for a home visit or for exercise.

For dogs, I specialise in one-to-one walks. These will normally be on-lead (for the dog’s safety and our peace of mind) with the use of extendable or long leads where appropriate. I will normally use your own lead etc. unless otherwise requested/appropriate. However in some circumstances off-lead walks may be arranged. Each walk/visit will be for the full time you have requested – my travel time is not taken from your time. Should weather conditions dictate, walks will be shortened (i.e. in severe winter or excessive summer heat) but your pet will still be attended for the full time booked. Walks can be on a regular basis, 1-5 days a week, Monday to Friday (ad-hoc weekend walks may be arranged subject to my availability) and once or twice a day, or on an ad-hoc basis as and when you need them. I am also happy to feed your dogs if required. Provision of water will always be ensured at every visit.

Your pet’s health, safety and welfare are my first and foremost concern at all times. I have good quality leads and harness if required, checked and kept in top condition. I always carry plenty of poop bags. I have towels for drying off wet paws/coats – these are never used on more than one animal and are washed after each use. I have a fluorescent jacket and lead strips for bad light, and for the summer I have a “Cool Coat" which will fit most medium sized dogs, and carry a collapsible water bowl and water. Hygiene is very important to me, with wipes and hand sanitiser used after each visit.

For cats (and other small pets such as chickens and Guinea Pigs) I offer daily home visits (usually once or twice a day) to feed, fuss, play with and clean up for them as required. Home visits can be arranged 7 days a week, subject to my availability. They are usually before 10am and/or after 4pm.

I also offer a pet transport services, so if you need your animal taken to or collected from a boarding establishment, grooming parlour or even the vet, I can provide this service for you. I have both dog and cat travelling cages and dog seatbelts and harness.

I am fully insured to walk dogs, transport animals and to enter your property. Your keys are also fully insured against loss whilst in my possession, and I also have Public Liability Insurance. I have a Dog First Aid Certificate and a Dog Walking and Pet Home Sitting Diploma (Professional). I also have a full DBS Check.

All bookings will be invoiced, usually on or before the first walk/visit takes place. Payment can be made by either bank transfer or cash, preferably on or before the first walk/visit, and not later than one week after the date of the first walk/visit. Any walk/visit cancelled by an owner after payment has been received will be credited to the next invoice (or refunded), providing cancellation is notified at least 24 hours before the walk/visit is due to take place. Any cancellations within 24 hours of the walk/visit will be subject to a 50% fee retention. Any cancellations made by myself will be credited/refunded in full.

We really cannot recommend Liz highly enough. Liz completely "gets" our GSD who does have her issues. Also this past weekend our requirements changed at quite short notice and Liz went above and beyond to look after all our others animals as well (and there are many!) It's so reassuring to know our animals are in such good hands. I would give more than 5 stars if I could!

Liz has instantly been someone our dog has been happy with and just as importantly, someone who we trust to come into our home. As she only does individual clients at a time , she has easily been able to adapt what we’ve needed without it being a problem for example when our mother in laws dog comes to stay or when our dog has been under the weather and needed adaptions to the routine. She updates us with any concerns and cute pics too and we’ve always felt he’s been well looked after and have a special bit of 1:1 time when we aren’t around.

Friendly, reliable service. Liz is a natural with dogs and always does her best to help out with last minute changes or additional days. My dog loves her visits from Liz which are tailored to meet our 'elderly' dog requirements. Highly recommend!

My dog was Liz's first client........ he was very happy in her care and always looked forward to his walks with her. Liz was very flexible and always gave plenty of notice of her holidays. Very happy to recommend her service.

On recommendation from a friend, I began using Ebony Pet Services over a year ago for my ginger tom cat, Kevin. The service Liz has provided has been excellent and I have always received a prompt response when making last minute enquiries (which I often do) about availability. I would highly recommend her services to anyone needing warm and caring ‘at home’ pet services.

Liz has walked our dog Bella quite a few times now on an ad hoc basis. Bella is always very relaxed in the evening after a walk with Liz so I know she's had a good time! Liz is very good with animals and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

If I could give more stars I would!
As I’m often at home with the little ones when Liz comes to take Prince out, I’ve have the opportunity to get to know her as well. She’s a lovely, genuine person with a real passion for animals and I trust her 100% with Prince. I can always tell when the car has pulled up outside to take Prince out as he makes sure he lets me know by his cries of excitement. Thank you Liz.

We cannot recommend Liz and her Pet Services enough. She is flexible, extremely attentive and caring. We have never had any concerns, or worries, and feel 100% comfortable, every day, that our Dog is in the best hands. Liz also goes the extra mile and is always on hand for advice, pops a parcel in the house, and is amazing at accommodating a last minute change to the plan. She gives plenty of notice if she can't make a date and we highly recommend her and so does our precious dog!
