Welcome to Love Em ‘n’ Leave Em

“I love ’em when you have to leave ’em!”

me and my dogs

Hello, my name is Gillian and when I tell people I walk dogs for a living, a lot of people ask ‘but what do you really want to do?’ They assume this is just something to do while I wait for a proper job. Well this is my proper job and I love it! Words cannot convey the sense of fulfilment you get when a happy four-legged client comes running to the door to greet you because they are so pleased to see you again.

Owning a pet is a long-term commitment and part of living is needing to produce an income ie. a job to go to. Most people who own pets worry and feel guilty about leaving their pets for long hours. Since it’s not possible to be in two places at once (home and work) hiring a professional pet service gives you peace of mind. I offer friendly, flexible and trustworthy pet care in your own home.

I have full insurance and a police check and use a dog friendly, approved, ventilated van so you can be assured of the highest standards of care. As the owner of a very bouncy Labrador called Pip I realise the importance of taking away the worry about leaving her alone.

I cover Knaresborough and Harrogate and offer regular or occasional Dog Walking, Cat Visits and Small animal care.

  • What our clients are saying…

    “Thank you for walking our greyhound during our long days out. She greatly appreciates the opportunity to stretch her lanky legs and take care of business. Having you look after her keeps my mind at ease, as I know the little old lady that she is, can’t be alone for too long. Thank you.”
