Hands up who’s guilty of pet care stereotyping? Are you picturing a bright and sparky whippersnapper chomping at the bit to take your beloved dog for walkies? Or a feline-fanatic Bridget Jones figure with a house full of cats where there’s always room for one more kitty to care for? While both of these mental pictures of your potential pet care person might be bang on the money, it’s also true that your dog-walker-to-be or cat-obsessed-carer could be young or old, tall or small, student or stay-at-home parent.
That’s why, in honour of National Day of Encouragement, we’re celebrating Peter – our oldest and one of our most popular pet care providers. And what better way to encourage animal lovers far and wide to join our carer community than to pay Peter a visit to hear all about his pet-sitting ‘tales’? Watch our mini film to meet the man himself and to all of you owners out there – it’s time to start finding your very own Peter!
Work, family and social commitments mean that there often aren't enough hours in the day to give our pets the attention that they deserve.
