Why I Started My Pet Care Business
For as long as I can remember I’ve had a real love and passion for all animals, both domestic and those in the wild and for many years I have known that working with animals was meant to be my vocation in life.
I’m Jacqui, founder and owner of For Our Love of Pets. I live with my partner Roger, our two Golden Retrievers, Ella and Bailey (one of Ella’s only litter) and our cat Kiki. Between us, we have owned dogs for 35 years and cats for 40 years.
Before we had Ella we contemplated for a long time how we could care for a dog whilst working full time but, following many long conversations and lots of consideration we decided it could work if we employed puppy sitters and dog walkers when we had to be in the office. I know first-hand how difficult it is having to leave your pets for any reason so having trusted, caring and professional pet sitters is vital.
I spent many years in a corporate environment providing exceptional customer service to many high level individuals and companies and I decided it was time to combine that service together with my passion for animals to provide the ultimate service to both you and your extended families.
In terms of qualifications so far, I completed the Canine First Responder in primary and secondary care course prior to starting my business. I have a Level 2 City & Guilds qualification in the Technical Competence of Dog Walking. I have recently renewed my canine first aid certificate with Dog First Aid and have completed online training in An Introduction to Pet Anxiety and Canine Separation Anxiety with Pet Education & Training, Covid-19 – Disease Control for Pet Professionals, and a competency course for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs, both with the Pet Industry Federation. Further training will be ongoing.

Alan Munro (Dog Walker and Pet Carer)
Alan's first love for animals came at a very early age with two welsh corgis called Patches and Billy, and a ginger Tom cat called Shandy. After being married for a few years and having two young children they decided to add to their family by having a Red Setter who they called Bruno. Bruno gave them thirteen years of happiness. They also had a Gordon Setter and an English Setter during that time but unfortunately the Gordon Setter had an irregular heartbeat and passed away aged five. The English setter lived to a good age. Alan then decided that they should have another Red Setter, so along came Barney who was from a litter of thirteen and a Best in Breed at Crufts .
Today Alan has a Red setter called Rory, two Black Labradors called Jet and Diesel and two cats , Guinness and Peaches. Jet now nine was adopted and Diesel who is two and half should have been a therapy dog for my late disabled daughter. When not walking his dogs, you will find Alan running with Diesel in and around the countryside. They love park runs and have had two first places in little less than a year. Alan regularly runs 30 miles a week.
Alan is Canine First Aid trained and has completed the Covid 19 – Disease Control for Pet Professionals with the Pet Industry Federation.
