I would definitely recommend Liz, such a lovely lady and happy to go above and beyond for the horses 😊 loved getting photo updates of my boys who both looked so happy and very well looked after 😊
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.
