We Love Pets North Ockendon Branch Director
Meet Shirley, your local We Love Pets manager
Shirley and her local team are all police checked, pet first aid trained and fully insured, meaning you can have complete peace of mind that your pet is in highly capable and caring hands. Furthermore, Shirley has also completed her Basic Dog Handling and Training Skills course, as well as being City and Guilds qualified in dog walking, so you can really trust that your pet is being cared for by the experts!
Shirley and the team will take your dog for a wonderful walk with plenty of fun and exercise, and they will return home exercised and happy for a towel down, treats and some fresh water. Regular updates and photos are all part of the dog walking service.
The team love the parish of North Ockendon for the expansive green spaces it provides for them to take your dog on some brilliant, long dog walks. Belhus Woods and Thames Chase Forest Centre are among Shirley's favourite places to walk the dogs of North Ockendon in her care when not out exploring with her own dog, Robbie.
Shirley is licensed by her local authority to board dogs and offers an excellent home from home dog boarding service while you’re away on holiday.

Dog walkers 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
Our pet care services
We offer our dog walking 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.
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 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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
