Welcome to Pet Au Pair

We all know pets are part of our lives, homes, families and hearts, in many cases enjoying the same (if not better) status than a family member.

This is why at Pet Au Pair we offer a trustworthy, fully insured service and canine first-aid trained that can assist you with all the daily needs your pet requires.

My name is Holly Thorman I set up Pet Au Pair in 2000, since this time we have grown and now have 6 other members of staff.

Holly continues to train our somewhat differcult young goldie & 1 yr on he is entering obedience competitions! We now have a relaxed, calm & responsive dog & must thank Holly & Mandy for their commitment. Well done.

– Pauline

Couldnt do without her, my dog Rex loves going out with Holly and Maria, nothing is to much trouble for them and they are more than happy to take him at short notice!

– Jan Brown

For the past 2 years, we have used Pet Au Pair. Holly has proven reliable, friendly and flexible. Our dog, Ollie, also thoroughly enjoys spending time with her and the other dogs twice a week. We would highly recommend her!

– Judith

I work away from home and a friend recommended Holly, I have two young Boxer boys absolutely lovely but as Boxers are very boisterous and full of fun. Since being with Holly the boys have retained their fun loving spirit but are a lot more settled and calmer, they are extremely happy and contented. Holly has been a god send cant recommend her higly enough.

– Michael Billingham

I have a beautiful Bichon called Alfie who Holly has cared for since June 2007. She is fantastic with him, he has been with Holly whilst i’m at work & for 16 days while I was on holiday. She keeps me informed and has been an invaluable source of advice/information. Alfie is always pleased to see her… I would recommend her to anyone.

– Caroline Spence

Holly is now like one of the family we trust her with not only the keys to our property but more importantly, Woody; our dog. Woody has regular weekly walks but it has been known for me to call her last minute when I have had a meeting etc and if she can she will always oblige. Woody this year attended his first pool party as it was too hot for a full walk one day.

– Rachel Taylor-Kane

We couldn’t do without Holly. She is Bully’s best friend! She is also a lovely friendly & very reliable girl who i couldn’t do without. I can rely on her for almost anything to do with Bully, my English Bull Terrier. As soon as he gets his collar on he knows Holly will be arriving soon. Having Holly has meant i can go to work or have a full day shopping without having to worry about Bully.

– Andrea Campbell

We have 2 goldern retrievers Mia and Kelly who have been walked by Holly for 5 years now. She’s very professional and reliable and the dogs get a good walk when they go out with Holly. She is also flexible and is able to cater to our needs sometimes at the last minute ! She is wonderful with the dogs and they have a good time with her. Holly has been with us for such a long time now and the girls really love her. We highly recommend her.
