I think Skye was waiting for his turn lol.

Oscar the Westie

I had to show meveryone our little pal Oscar the Westie - his owner is on holiday and Oscar is 14 years young and loving life. He has been cared for by Tammy who has done as fantatic job giving him his twice daily insulin injections, giving out cuddles and managing his complex diet needs. The two are forming a real bond and Tammy is totally in love with her little man. 

Playing games ......


Being a puppy - at 14 remember :)

Doing a good thing while still dog walking ....

On Sept 3rd we are off on a dog walk with a difference and hope our friends will join us :) We are walking in support of Alzheimers society - raising funds and awareness. 

Have a look at the links and see what it is all about - our dogs are coming along as well.



Dog walking pals - Tommy and his friends

Dogs really do have very real friendships. My Tommy has lots and lots of friends but6 three of them are very special. First River, he adores him and haspplily trots along beside him on walks. Then Virgil, when his springer friend is groomed he sits and watches giving the odd whimper of concern. Last and most def not least is Buddy who he adores..... this was them on walkies today :)

Dog Training

Our approach to dog training is to treat every dog we meet as an individual and tailor a training program to each one based on what they need. This can result in attending a group training class, spending time having 1 to 1 sessions with our trainers either with or without owners which may involve introducing other dogs but also may be totally on their own and building towards being more socialable. Every dog works at their own pace.

Cat sitting - holiday cover for your cat

Does your cat hate going to the cattery? Do you need a stress free alternative? Stan’s Pals do holiday care tailored to suit the needs of each individual cat.


Your cat stays in his or her own home while you are away and is able to relax in their own space while you can relax on your holiday knowing that they are receiving the best possible care.


They get to eat their own usual food served in their own bowls and around their usual meal times. Special diets can be catered for.


Cats need love as well and we LOVE cats - pet sitting service

We love cats as well as dogs and many of them don't like going to catteries when their owners are away on holiday. We visit them in their own homes and make sure they are happy and stress free and have fresh water, their normal food, their usual beds and a clean litter tray :) More importantly we make sure they feel loved. We spend quality time with them, playing, giving out cuddles and fuss or just hanging out with them, whatever is needed. Company is very important and even more so when your cat is missing you.
