For many of us animal lovers, the mere thought of leaving our beloved companion behind while we jet off on holiday sends us into a panic.
Picturing our beloved dog or cat in a kennel or cattery with none of the familiarity of home is enough to persuade many pet owners to abandon their plans for a break and those brave enough to go often face days of frantic worry.
But thanks to the bright sparks at Billericay’s Creatures Great and Small pet store, there is finally another option!
The leading pet shop and grooming parlour has launched a unique service that provides unrivalled TLC for pets – and peace of mind their owners have previously only dreamt of.
Creatures Caring is the highly attractive alternative to pet boarding, enabling your pride and joy to remain in their own home for the duration of your break while a caring and highly professional member of the team tends to him or her
on a daily basis.
The service provides comprehensive care for your pet including the kind of one-to-one attention and interaction you would give yourself, regular walks, grooming, food and water and checks in case of illness or accident.
In addition, staff at Creatures Caring are also happy to do their bit for crime prevention including making sure your home looks lived in to deter burglars such as turning the lights on in winter and taking the post in – and even taking telephone messages and watering the plants!
As well as holidaymakers, Billericay’s Creatures Caring is also perfect for those in full-time work who are concerned about their pets being cooped up inside all day and also those who are less mobile and need a little help looking after their furry friends.
Keith Wood, managing director of Creatures Great and Small, which runs the service from its shops in Billericay and Brentwood, said it was created as a result of demand from his existing customers.
“It’s something we’ve been asked of for a long time,” he said. “Some people are just not happy to leave their little darlings in kennels and have asked us if there’s anything we can do to help so we started the service in response to the needs of our customers.
“We hope we have provided an alternative to the kennel, a kind of doggy day care service – a bit like a nursery, and for many people, their pets are every bit as precious as their kids.
“Pet owners often face a huge dilemma when they need to be away from home. You may not like the idea of a boarding kennel or cattery as this could be upsetting for the animal not to mention expensive and your pet will be much happier and safe in its own home.”
Billericay’s Creatures Great and Small employs fully qualified and insured pet care staff who are all CRB checked.
The company is extremely flexible and will offer a bespoke service according to your requirements.
