About Us

Founded by a Registered Veterinary Nurse, Animal Smart is on a mission to improve the standards of pet sitters and dog walkers in the UK. The industry is currently largely unregulated which means standards of care vary right across the country. Our teams deliver a consistently high standard of pet care across the UK.
As part of our standardization, every one of our pet carers are trained and certified. We have bespoke training created by veterinary professionals that all our pet carers complete. On completion, our pet carers achieve our Animal Smart Certified Pet Care Provider status.
Many pets have medical problems or take medication. Therefore we train our pet sitters on common diseases so that they have increased knowledge and understanding when caring for these special pets. We train in conditions such as arthritis, epilepsy and diabetes. Our teams also complete pet first aid training course. Meaning you have peace of mind while leaving your pets with a Certified Animal Smart Pet Care Provider.
We fully understand the importance of keeping your pets in their normal routine and that’s why we tailor our service to your pets individual requirements. We will spend time getting to know you and your pets in order to provide the exact care your pet needs. Throughout the time we are caring for your pet, we will provide you with a care report so you can see exactly what we’ve been doing and the fun your pets been having. Your pet is our number 1 priority

As dog owners we all know how important exercise is to keeping our dogs healthy, both mentally and physically, but it’s not always possible for us to give our dogs all the exercise they need. Our dog walking service provides your dogs with a toilet break and stimulation when you can’t be there. As a nation we have increasingly busy lives, work, childcare, school runs, activities, house chores to name just a few! Sometimes dashing back home at lunchtime to walk the dog isn’t always possible and can be quite stressful adding another thing to the list. Animal Smart dog walking service provides a solution. We can free up your time while providing your dog with the stimulation he deserves. We fully understand how special your dog is so we tailor our dog walking service to meet your dogs individual needs. We don’t have registration fees, or insist on a minimum amount of hours, which means you can use our dog walking service as much or as little as you want. For your complete peace of mind, all of our dog walkers have received training created by veterinary professionals and they are all certified as Animal Smart Pet Care Providers. Our dog walkers have industry standard insurance and you have the option for GPS tracking if you choose.

If you are looking for someone to look after you dogs while you go away then our dog home boarding service might just be pawfect for them. Animal Smart dog home boarding offers a home from home experience for your dog, and is ideal for dogs who like a little pampering and who are not so keen on traditional boarding kennels. Your dog will get to stay in one of our approved family homes, living as part of the family; and you get to relax in the knowledge your dog is being cared for, just like with you. If your dog is on regular medication or has medical needs, our approved home boarders have the support of a veterinary professional and should they have any concerns about your dog they can seek initial veterinary advice, without stressing your dog with an unnecessary trip to the vets. For your peace of mind our dog home boarders are fully insured & DBS checked and follow guidelines set out in the Animal Activities Licensing (AAL) Regulations 2018
