Why Us

Home Pet People was founded in 1995 and began life trading under the name ‘While You’re Away’. In that time we have gone from strength to strength and now have a large and loyal customer base.

Every member of the team from office staff to sitters are true animal lovers. We have decades of experience between us which means your home and pets are in safe hands.

We are a “people business” and everyone that works as part of the team has an excellent background and understanding of pet care.  As a regional company, we have the advantage of getting to know our sitters on a personal basis.  We are experts in placing trustworthy sitters in the care of your home and pets.

We use an industry-leading software programme which enables clients to manage their own portal and make bookings easily and efficiently. This, coupled with our outstanding customer service makes us confident that choosing us will be a great decision!
