We’re a small and friendly pet sitting and dog walking business within the Sunderland and South Shields area which aims to develop long-term friendships with animals and their owners.  So hello and welcome to Whitburn Whiskers pet care!

Dog Walking

We offer one-to-one dog walking services so that your friendly fido gets a completely individual walk, tailored to their needs. We understand that your pets are family members, but there are times when you can’t always be home for them – and that’s where we come in! Our aim is to provide the same exercise, love and attention that you would give them yourself and in the process, become lifelong companions. We welcome all breeds and rescue dogs, and would love the chance to meet you all and have a good chat about all things dog. Click here to find out more about our dog walking services.

Pet Sitting

We also offer home pet sitting visits (sometimes called mobile cattery services) which are the perfect alternative to using traditional kennels. While you’re away, we’ll visit your animals where they like to be best – in their home. You can go off on your travels, safe in the knowledge that your most im-paw-tant family member will have a meal and a cuddle within hours – hopefully they won’t even realise you’ve gone!

  • your pet remains in a comfortable environment with all their familiar sights and smells, perfect for rescue or nervous cats – or huffy cats!
  • daily cuddles and play-time are all part of the service
  • there’s no cat-carrier struggle (I can’t recommend the tried and tested ‘catch-the-cat-in-a-pillowcase-technique’ enough!) and no guilty goodbye before you drive off
  • your home has daily checks while you’re away so we can give it that ‘lived-in-so-please-don’t-burgle-me-Mr-Burglar’ look
  • we hold keys for our regular customers so you can think of us as extended family – always useful to have a spare pair of hands in emergencies
  • receive daily updates via text or email and also see our facebook pages as we love to keep you in the loop with the odd picture or two! Meet some of our happy furry customers…

Whitburn Whiskers is a fully-insured professional pet sitting service and mobile cattery and we can cover most areas within Sunderland and South Tyneside including Whitburn, Cleadon, South Shields, Boldon, Fulwell, Seaburn, Roker, Harton and Westoe. I’m afraid we can no longer look after pets south of the River Wear as it’s too far for us to travel. Please get in touch if you’d like to have a chat about what we can do for you and your furry little friends.
