About Me


Hello my name is Abbey. I have always had a love for animals and it has shown through my passion for horse riding, having many pets and people asking me to look after their pets whilst they were on holiday when I was younger. My interest of animals and curiosity for science led me to gain in BSc Zoology. Achieving my degree gave me a deeper understanding of animal behaviour and conservation, and strengthened my enthusiasm for animals and science.

Personal Pet Care is passionate about looking after every animal in our care as if it was our own pet! We have looked after dogs, cats, rabbits and many other small animals. We meet you and your pets before the walks/visits start so we can take all the relevant details for them and they can start to feel comfortable around us for when we look after them.

But don’t just take our word for why you should choose Personal Pet Care, have a look at some reviews below.

“I used Personal Pet Care for the first time last month when I had to leave my two Maine Coon cats for a week. As re-homed animals they were still settling in and I didn’t want them to go to a cattery or experience further disruption. Abbey’s service seemed like the perfect solution. She was scrupulous about getting to know them - their likes, dislikes, food preferences - and was willing to spend time brushing them and playing with them during her daily visits. She took copious notes, was transparent about her own experience and had evidence of insurance etc. When I returned the cats were happy, relaxed and friendly; the kitchen was clean and I was delighted. This bespoke service is reasonably priced and I will have no hesitation about using Personal Pet Care again." Glyn, Honey and Dougal – June 2016 (Feline pet sitting)

“We used Personal Pet Care for 2 weeks whilst we went on holiday.  They were very professional in their approach to looking after our 2 cats and throughout our holiday, they were kind enough to send us photos of them so we knew they were happy and being well looked after. Would definitely use them again!” Helen, Lennox and Poppet – July 2016 (Feline pet sitting)

“Abbey is a caring and very reliable dog walker.  My little dog is quite timid but took to Abbey immediately.  I feel very confident leaving Poppy in Abbey’s care.  She lets me know if there are any issues and makes sure there is cover if she is unavailable.  I was very nervous about returning to work and leaving Poppy in the care of someone else but knowing Abbey is there to take care of Poppy makes it so much easier.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Abbey and Personal Pet Care.” Jane and Poppy – September 2016 (Solo dog walking)

"The pet sitting service provided by Abbey is great. It's good to know that you are leaving your cat in safe hands with minimal disturbance/ distress to him as he remains in his home environment. She always gives regular updates whilst you are away so you know all is ok. Also recognising our cat is a bit of a handful, it is clear that Abbey has heaps of patience and is obviously an animal lover with a good way with them. He's always really content when we get back - in fact I think he likes Abbey's company more than ours!” Laura and Percy – March 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“Great service provided, always helpful even at short notice. So glad I found Personal Pet Care.” Jackie and Teddy – March 2017 (Solo dog walking)

“Abbey is very professional and obviously has a love of animals which showed in her care for my dog. She is always prompt and reliable and I would definitely recommend Personal Pet Care for dog walking services.” Kelly and Bessie – April 2017 (Solo dog walking)

“Abbey was great, she came and met me and the cats in advance of looking after them to ask all the right questions. Vet information, cat personalities, preferred timings etc - totally putting my mind at ease. Whilst we were away, she kept me up to date with short messages and pics and she was great when one of the cats was sick (just eaten too much grass!) in cleaning up and reassuring us that everything was ok.” Anna, Lem and Bella – June 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“We have found Abbey to be really flexible with arranging dates for walks for our dog which is so helpful for us as we have complicated and changing work schedules. Our dog only joined us at Christmas time and Abbey is the first person we have entrusted him to so we were quite apprehensive at first. Abbey was very understanding and has always communicated so well with us: texting when she has arrived to let us know how our pooch is, and texting again after the walk to let us know how it went, if there were any issues, and how the pooch was when she left. This has really put us at ease, and we feel so comfortable knowing that the dog is in such good hands. Also, Abbey has a lovely way with dogs and ours took to her straight away so we know he is always so happy to see her and spend time with her – the only problem is that he doesn’t want her to leave him! So, overally, I cannot recommend Abbey and her service highly enough J Jessica and Vinny – June 2017 (Solo dog walking)

"Abbey is reliable, professional but friendly and her enthusiasm for her business comes through. Bessie loves her walks with Abbey and I know that for the time she is with her, Bess is loved and looked after very well.” Kelly and Bessie – July 2017 (Doggy pals walking)

"A very positive experience: service delivered exactly as agreed at a reasonable price. Good customer (and pet) care! I would have no hesitation in using again.” Antony and Madison – July 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“A very personable service that meant that we felt assured our three cats were being well cared for at all times. Even an unplanned trip to the vets was handled professionally and with the utmost care. Thank you.” Sarah, Sable, Minx and Gizzy – September 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“Abbey is very efficient and friendly when arranging and performing Personal Pet Care services. She really seems to care about the animals she looks after. Bella really enjoys her visits and walks, and we feel very confident leaving her in Abbey’s care.” Jane and Bella – September 2017 (Canine pet sitting)

"At first it was hard to consider leaving my cat in the care of Personal Pet Care as I couldn't be sure this would work well, but my cat was getting very unhappy with being put into a cattery and I felt I had no choice. As soon as I met Abbey, I felt better and each experience of leaving the cat in her care has been better and better. It has freed me to go off on breaks and not worry about my beloved cat anymore!” Lynne and Leelee – September 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“Abbey is wonderfully reliable - our cats are also happy & well cared for when we return home” Melissa, Pootle and Posy – September 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“Abbey is an extremely reliable and conscientious dog walker. My little cocker spaniel, adores her. I was very impressed that Abbey regularly communicates with me and even offers cover if she is unable to walk my dog herself. I love her dog walking reports at the end of the week which always brings a smile to my face. I would have no hesitation in recommending Abbey to friends and family, she has been a joy to work with. Her fees are very reasonable too. An absolute star!” Jane and Poppy – October 2017 (Solo dog walking)

“I found Abbey and her team to be reliable and trustworthy.  My children loved the texts that let us know how the cats were doing.  I'm very happy to recommend them.” Sylvia, Rough and Tumble – October 2017 (Feline pet sitting)

“Good rabbit sitting service.” Mona, Fluffy and Squirtle – October 2017 (Small animal pet sitting)
