A pet is always better off in its own environment rather than being placed in strange environments like kennels or creche.
We aim to make the time we look after your pet a caring and loving experience so that the time you are away is not a stressful experience for them.

When your schedule changes for whatever reason we can care for your pet in the same way that you do.

Your dog will be kept on a lead at all times (extended leads can be used) to ensure complete safety.

We offer a flexible daily or occasional dog walking service which is tailored to suit your needs.

When you first use Doctor Dolittle services we will visit you and get to know and fully understand what your requirements are.
We will consider the dogs breed, age, energy levels and character and we can help you decide which level of care is best for you and your dog.

GOLD £10.00

  • A GOLD level dog visit would be 1 hour. A walk would be for 45 minutes with 15 minutes for feeding,
    providing water and generally making a fuss and then settling them down until the next visit or your return.

SILVER £8.00

  • A SILVER level visit would include all the gold level features but condensed into 30 minutes.

BRONZE £5.00

  • A BRONZE level visit would be a greet and feed visit. Perhaps this is suitable for an older or infirm dog or a puppy which is too young to go far from home. This visit is 15 minutes.


  • This service is the ideal alternative to placing your dog in kennels. We will visit morning, afternoon and evening for a total of 1 hour 30 minutes which will be broken into 3 x 30 minute visits. This is available for visits within 5 miles of DL1 2YT.
    Outside that area there will be a 0.50p per mile excess mileage charge for each visit. This charge is necessary as the travelling will mean that the number of appointments that day will be restricted due to travelling.

Monthly Contracts £180.00

  • Monthly contracts are available Monday through to Friday.
    These are available starting from £180.00 per calendar month, payable monthly in advance.

Bank Holidays

  • Only HOLIDAY PLUS and GOLD service is available on Bank Holidays.
