As you can see we are serious about the way we conduct ourselves and we know that there is a lot more to modern animal care than a quick walk and feed the fish.

No one likes to put their own dog into kennels, so if you want your pets to stay in surroundings they know, in the comfort of their own home while you are away; or if you simply need some help while you are at work then please feel free to give us a call or drop us a query from the contact page.


We are a family of 3: Steve, Trish and Callum and live in West Rainton with our own pets. You can see a selection of them in the pictures on the page buttons above as well as in the gallery page, there is Max the German Shepherd, Poppy the working Cocker Spaniel, Peaches and Muffin the cats and a whole host of marine fish, corals and other animals in our aquarium.
