Bournemouth - Lydia Cromie

Lydia Cromie

We Love Pets Bournemouth Director

Meet Lydia

The We Love Pets Bournemouth branch is run and overseen by branch director, Lydia Cromie, along with her experienced pet care team. Each staff member is fully trained in pet first aid, police background checked, and fully insured - so you can have extra peace of mind that your pets are in safe hands.

As lifelong animal-lovers, Lydia and her team are passionate about working with all types of animals, and they especially enjoy getting out for a dog walk by the sea. They know all of the best area dog walking spots, and even a few that the tourists haven't been able to sniff out! In accordance with our brand's "No Pack Walk" policy, we promise to walk no more than four dogs at a time, for maximum fun, safety and control.

At We Love Pets, we know that pets are family, which is why we're committed to caring for each and every pet as if it were our own. We take the time to get to know you and your pet, and gain an understanding of your pets individual needs and requirements. We'll ensure your pet receives the appropriate levels of attention, mental stimulation and exercise that they need, providing a personalised service that goes above and beyond!

Dog walking (1)-2

Dog walking with a difference

Whether you are out at work, working from home or just want your dog to have a fun playtime with another dog friend you can book us today for a free consultation.

We make each walk full of play, socialisation, exercise and exploration. 

Your dog will be walked in a safe open space and will return home, happy and tired. We also provide fresh water, treats and will towel your dog off in wet weather.

Safe and fun local dog walks 

Your dog’s safety is always our top priority which is why we never walk large groups of dogs at one time. And our team of dog walkers all have the City and Guilds dog walking qualification. 

We want your dog to experience a fun-filled walk whilst under constant supervision, without being bombarded by lots of dogs. We’ll match your dog with a friend or two who are suitable in playability.

Our fully trained, trusted dog walkers are experts at tailoring each walk to your dog’s individual needs and will reinforce any training or routines that you already have in place.

Dog visits-3

Dog boarding you can trust

When you’re going away on holiday, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your dog is safe and happy without you. 

If you can’t bear the idea of leaving your dog in kennels then our home-from-home dog boarding service offers the comforts and fuss of a dog lover’s home that’s as good as your own! 

Your dog will be thoroughly pampered and welcomed into a trusted pet sitter’s home as part of the family with your dog’s diet and daily routine maintained throughout your dog’s stay.

How does dog home boarding work?

While you’re away, your dog will be going on a lovely holiday of their own! They will become part of the family and enjoy walks and plenty of individual attention. Dog boarding is perfect for dogs who get on with other dogs and people.

We Love Pets boarders are not just dog sitters – our aim is to fully integrate your dog into the life of our family during their time with us.

For your peace of mind, our home pet boarders are:

  • Experienced dog owners
  • Licensed by the local authority
  • Fully insured
  • Police checked
  • Trained in canine first aid

Dog Home Boarding

Our home-from-home dog boarding service is a great alternative to traditional dog boarding kennels. Ideal for when you go on holiday and want your dog to be thoroughly pampered while you’re away.

Dog Day Care

Dog Day Care is a place for your dog to spend the day with a friend, play, exercise and relax in the care of a loving home. While you are at work your dog can enjoy walks, cuddles, naps, training, playtime and plenty of attention.

Cat Sitting

Cat sitting is an ideal service for when you are on holiday and want your cat to stay at home where they are comfortable. We can visit as often as you like to provide fresh water, food, make a fuss and check your house is secure.

Puppy Care

We can help you get through those first few weeks and months when a puppy arrives so that you can go to work without worrying. We'll make frequent visits for regular feeding, cleaning, toilet breaks and lots of fun!

Dog Visits

Our dog sitters provide company and toilet breaks for your dog when you're unable to pop home and let them out. Perfect if you work long shifts or your dog needs medication, frequent feeding or regular trips to the garden.

Small Animal Care

Small animals need holiday care too! We'll either board your pets in a pet carer’s home or make regular visits to your pets in their own home. We look after chickens, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice or ferrets.

Reptiles and Exotics

All of our staff are trained to handle and care for exotic pets. If you're looking for a specialist to look after your pet snake, bearded dragon, tarantula, or any other exotic pet while you're away on holiday, you need this service.

Pet Sitting

Pet sitting allows you to go away happy in the knowledge that your pets will be well looked after at home where they are comfortable. We'll spend time with your pet, make a fuss, feed and water them, plus clear up any mess.

Horse and Equestrian Care

We have a small team of grooms and horse carers who can provide a range of services for your horse, pony or donkey. The team are all experienced in equestrian care and some staff have specific qualifications in looking after horses.

No Pack Walking Policy

We are passionate about giving your dog a physically demanding, stimulating and above all, safe dog walk which is why we adopt a no pack walking policy as part of our promise to deliver the best pet care possible. 

By walking a maximum of four dogs at one time:

  • We can easily keep a trained eye on all dogs.
  • Safety for dogs and their walkers is kept in check.
  • We can walk dogs who get along together.
  • A good balance of confidence and socialisation is achieved.
  • Smaller groups reduce the risk of illnesses or disease spreading.
  • We can easily stop and pick up any dog poop.


We only ever use regulated dog walkers who are vetted by us personally and background checked too. All dog walkers are pet first aid trained.
