SOCIAL PET SOCIETY
I'm Emily. I’ve always loved and looked after animals. I grew up in a household of cats and was always looking after my neighbour's dogs, cats, rabbits and hamsters. My husband and I currently have a gorgeous rescue dog called Baloo, and a beautiful tortoiseshell called Elsa (the Disney connection is completely accidental!). I created Social Pet Society since moving to the Kent/Surrey borders. I found it difficult to find flexible dog walking and cat sitting for my own ad-hoc needs, and realised I could help. I am so happy to be able to offer loving pet care to my clients.
Group Dog Walks
We offer group dog walks morning and afternoon for socialisation, stimulation and exercise. I walk a maximum of four dogs at any one time. In line with our preference for our own bouncy Baloo, I am comfortable with off-lead if you would like. This would only be in secure areas I know are safe, and if your dog has sufficient recall. I make sure all dogs coming on group walks are well socialised and friendly. If they get muddy, I will try and rub them down as much as possible before letting them back into your home, all I ask is that you provide a towel for me to do so.
We also offer pet sitting services for all manner of animals. All animals need regular contact and love, not just food and water. I understand how anxious you can feel when you are leaving your beloved pet home alone for some time. I will ensure they are comforted, stroked, played with on every home visit. Regardless of your animal’s breed, age or mannerisms, I am happy to customise my pet sitting service to fit with their needs. I can visit once or twice a day for a minimum of half an hour, to feed, cuddle and play with your animals. I will clear out litter trays and rabbit/hamster/guinea pig cages as needed. I can also water your plants, turn lights on and off and open and close curtains if required. I will send you regular updates via text or WhatsApp to let you know how your pets are doing. And if you need a fresh pint of milk or a loaf of bread waiting for you on your return, just let me know!
Solo/Bespoke Dog Walks
If your dog prefers a solo stroll or you have a particular time of day you need them to be walked, I will happily accommodate.
I have a Pet First Aid Level 2 (VTQ) Certificate, a DBS check and I am fully insured.
Based just outside Biggin Hill, I am happy to cover key areas such as Bromley, Orpington, Westerham, Oxted, Godstone, Purley and Croydon. I will consider other locations on a case by case basis but may need to apply a mileage surcharge.
