Welcome to Essex Petsitters Ltd

Why choose our pet sitters?

At Essex Petsitters we have been providing a caring and comfortable home from home dog boarding service in Essex for 10 years.

It goes without saying that we couldn’t provide this very welcome alternative to boarding kennels without our lovely pet sitters!

They are the heart of Essex Petsitters, and definitely put the ‘home’ in home dog boarding.

Does your dog become stressed or anxious when you are going on holiday?

In our experience this can be a very difficult time for family pets – which in turn can lead to worry for their loving owners.

It would not be an overstatement to say that some dogs find staying in kennels to be traumatic.



Our origins

We were unhappy about having to leave our dogs in kennels when we went on holiday, as many of our local providers are predominantly based outside, and our doggie children were used to their home comforts.

So, we decided to establish a caring service that will go the extra mile that your pet deserves. At Essex Petsitters, we understand that your pet’s happiness is about much more than their material needs – most of all they need love and companionship.

Everyone who works for Essex Petsitters is covered by our fully comprehensive insurance.
