We Love Pets Darwen Branch Director

Meet Robyn

The We Love Pets Darwen branch is run by Robyn and her friendly team of pet care professionals. Robyn grew up with pets, and shares a home with two terriers and a rescue rabbit, so working with animals is her dream come true!

Each member of the Darwen team is trained in pet first aid, police checked, fully insured, and has animal care experience. We know how important your pets are and we want them to have the very best care possible!

Robyn is City & Guilds qualified in dog walking, and her team loves nothing more than getting outdoors in Darwen and the surrounding countryside. Our dog walks are fun, personalised, and safe. We follow the We Love Pets No Pack Walk Policy, which ensures that no more than four dogs are walked at a time. Walking in packs can be stressful and dangerous for the dogs involved, so we limit our numbers in order to prioritise the welfare of each dog.

Whatever your pet care needs, We Love Pets Darwen provides professional and reliable services that you can count on. We'll work with you to design a personalised care plan for your pet based on their individual needs. Fill out the enquiry form to tell us more about your pet, or drop us a line to speak with us directly. We can't wait to hear from you!

Dog walking with a difference

We know that as much as you love your dog, you can’t be in two places at once, so we offer our dog walker service throughout the day. 

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.

Our aim is to make each walk the highlight of your dog’s day, giving them a chance to play, socialise, exercise and explore new sights and smells.

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. 

We want your dog to experience a fun-filled walk whilst under constant supervision, without being bombarded by lots of big dogs! 

We’ll match your dog with a doggie friend who is suitable in age, size and 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 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.

Socialisation walks
Socialisation Walks

If your dog experienced some isolation in lockdown, they might not be as social as pre-pandemic pups. Our socialisation walks are designed to help your dog become comfortable with new stimuli and surroundings, as well as to gradually introduce other dogs and enhance their social skills.

Why choose We Love Pets?

Our dog walks are fun, safe and provide great exercise and mental stimulation for your dogs.


We walk our dogs in groups of no more than four to ensure our dog walkers can always respond to your pet.


All staff are pet first aid trained, insured and DBS checked for your peace of mind.


We always allow extra time between walks to ensure your pet is settled and mud-free when we leave your home.


We’re available 7 days a week, even when your regular pet carer is on holiday or poorly.


We have 24-hour access to emergency vet care, should it ever be needed.


Your pets are in expert hands – we have vet nurses, dog trainers and dog behaviourists on our team who can help.

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.
