“We created Village Pets so that no dog owner has to feel guilty about having to leave their pet home alone!”

You love your dog but you’ve got life going on and you just can’t be home with your pooch all the time (also, you wouldn’t mind the occasional night out or holiday sometime without worrying about the dog!)

We understand!

You need someone reliable to look after your four legged family member when you’re not able to.

That’s where we come in!

We believe that all dogs deserve exercise, comfort and companionship and during their time with us, that’s what they’ll get.

Village Pets was started as a dog-walking and cat-sitting service in 2016. Vicki, the founder’s love of animals and especially dogs, started from a very young age.

“Growing up with a dog always by my side, and it was the unconditional love and friendship between us that was so special.”

Vicki Powlson – Founder, Village Pets

Vicki gained a lot of hands on experience by volunteering at a doggy day care in 2006, long before she’d dreamt of founding her own business to help other dog owners with the worry taking care of their dogs throughout the day whilst they were working..

Vicki continued with her studies and gained her Animal Care and Welfare Qualification whilst raising her family.

In 2016 when she moved to Cranfield it was here that Village Pets was born. Vicki’s vision was to be a reliable, trusted friend for families and their beloved dogs , and build a relationship as their dog walker.

Village Pets continues to grow, and with continued personal development, so do we. We want Village Pets to be the best service your dog could ask for
