Pet Sitting Visits Why board your pet while you are away when your pet can enjoy all the comforts of their own home with planned visits from us instead? This service provides feeding and fresh water as well as play and interaction. We will clean up any mess that your pet may have made and clean out litter trays and cages etc. We will be happy to bring in the mail, feed the fish, and take care of any other requests to ensure that you have a hassle free time away. All small animals/reptiles classed as pets are considered - please just ask.
Doggy Day Care If you feel guilty about leaving your dog home all day on its own, or you have a wedding or other engagement to attend, then worry no more. At Merlin's Pet Pals, your 4 legged companion gets to socialise with other dogs, have fresh air, fun and exercise in our family home environment. Bring their own bed and toys and they will feel like home from home and be kept company for good parts of the day and enjoy at least 3 x 20 minute walks. Day care rates are charged between 08:00 to 18:00, overnight stays can be arranged for an additional fee.
Home Boarding As per Doggy Day Care, Home boarding allows your pet to spend time in our family home and receive the same loving attention we pay to our own dog, play and exercise for the duration of its stay. Your pet(s) will share our family home with my wife, our Cocker Spaniel (Merlin) and I. We will take no more than 2 dogs at any one time, so this service is quite limited especially in the holiday season. Your pet must be well house trained so that no damages are unnecessarily caused to our home and not prone to excessive barking/howling during alone times, we cannot accept bitches that are not spayed and no dogs under 18 months old. A one day doggy day care trial session will need to be taken to assess their behavior and well being in our home ahead of any agreed home boarding care.
House Sitting Perfect for the pet that doesn't like to sleep alone, spend your away time worry free knowing that your house and pet are well taken care of. In home pet sitting includes the regular Drop In Service, as well as us spending the night in your home to ensure that all is well. Price on request.
Pet Transport We all know that sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day. The Pet Transport service allows you to keep that appointment at the vet or the groomer even when you can't make it yourself.

"Felt completely comfortable leaving Max with Chris, Merlin , et al. Being able to see the photos on FB was great - clearly he enjoyed his holiday as much as we did! The Boarding Report is an excellent idea and it was brilliant to collect a relaxed dog. Thanks very much, very best wishes for Merlin's Pet Pals and I would 100% recommend you to anybody."

"We recently went on holiday and had to find a place to leave our Yorkshire terrier, Charlie. He had not been away from home before, so we needed to get it right. Merlin's Pet Pals proved to be the perfect answer, Charlie was really cared for and shown so much affection. He was there for 5 days and we were sent texts and photos showing how he was getting on. I would not have changed anything about his stay with Chris. Charlie is looking forward to HIS next holiday! Thank you Merlin's Pet Pals."

"Merlins Pet Pals looked after our rabbit, Clover, for a week, at very short notice,whilst we were on holiday. They paid a daily visit to our house and looked after her so well. It was peace of mind to know that she was in such good hands and being looked after and that our house was also having an eye kept on it whilst we were away. The pictures of her, posted on facebook, were welcomed by my two girls, as it reassured them that she was happy and content and also now a celebrity! Thanks once again."

"Merlin's pet pals have been walking our 5 month old pup Woody now for a couple of weeks during times when work commitments prevent us from spending time with him.
Woody loves his daily walks & plays & I highly recommend Chris & Merlin to anyone who like us need help with their beloved pets!"
