Holiday Cover

Have complete peace of mind that your horses and pets will be looked after exactly as you wish while you’re away.

In your Own Home

If you have a range of pets (dogs, cats, birds, horses etc) sometimes it is far less stressful for you and them if they can be taken care of in their own environment. That’s why I am happy to stay at your home and give you the peace of mind they are being well taken care off in an environment they already feel settled in.

I have a wide knowledge of different animals so I am sure I can provide a level of cover you require. I am also happy to send you photos/ updates (if you want them!) and I pride myself on offering a tailored service to your needs and for your peace of mind:

  • I have experience of taking care of people’s homes, dogs, horses and cats and I am happy to provide references where you can speak to previous clients.
  • Your home will not be unattended for more than 2 hours during the day or 1 hour at night, unless agreed prior to your booking.

Included in the quoted price:

Dogs feeling happy in their own environment

  • Complete care of your pets as agreed with you (feeding, care, medication, walks etc)
  • Care of your home, security and carrying out any daily tasks you require.
  • Watering of any plants you have (as required)
  • Collection of post, record of any calls/ messages or visitors which may take place while your away
  • The option of regular updates including photos as you wish

I am happy to give a quote tailored to your requirements, the cost will depend on the number (and type) of animals and level of care and work involved on a daily basis. Prices start from £55 per day (for a house with cats and/or dogs) and prices start from £100 per day if cover includes horses. This does not include my travel and I will be able to provide you with full quote following our initial discussion and outline of cover required.

If your not an existing equine client and your local (Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire or Leicestershire), I am happy to arrange visit so we can meet and discuss your requirements face to face. This can be following an initial discussion/ estimation of cost. If you are further afield, that’s not a problem, I can arrange a Zoom call and if it works for you I endeavour to arrive in plenty of time before you are due to travel so we can go through any final arrangements and meet your furry family with you there.

Location is not an issue for at home holiday cover, my travel is calculated on 45p per mile (return).

Holiday Cover at my Home – Dogs Welcome!

I am very fortunate to live on a large farm with plenty of private rural walks, this is ideal if you would like me to take care of your dog(s) in my own home. Your dog would be welcome as one of the family living in my cottage with no other pets. Many dogs that come and stay with me settle in very quickly and as an owner you have the peace of mind that I will take care of them as per your needs and requests.

Whether you have a highly active dog or someone who would rather curl up next to the log burner I will be happy to ensure they get the exercise and company they need while your away.

I would ask that you provide all food, medication, bowls, toys, treats, leads/ coats (as required) for the duration of their stay with me. The costs below are based on a day rate (there is no minimum number of days). In addition, if you would like me to collect your dog or deliver him/ her back to you this can be arranged at an additional cost.

  • One dog – £30 per day
  • Two dogs – £45 per day

“Leaving your beloved horses, cats and dogs at home is always a worry. They rely upon you for their daily needs from walks, food, fun, love and attending to their special requests. Kelly provides a truly first class service whether it’s at your home or hers. Kelly has looked after my horses and dogs and  can absolutely be relied upon to give your loved ones the very best care. Kelly knows what matters and will keep you up to date with little snippets and photos as you prefer. If your animals could choose – they would choose Kelly. Kelly will absolutely take care of your yard and possessions as if they were her own. A most thoughtful, kind, hardworking person and absolutely trusted friend. 

Wilma and Heidi our two black labs went to Kelly’s farm whilst we were on holiday in October 2023. They had a wonderful time. Wagging tails, shiny coats, clearly happy and relaxed as we came to collect them for home. We had no worries and indeed felt very happy that both woofers were having a good time whist we were away doing our thing” Karin Hardy, Nottinghamshire
