Professional, friendly pet care for when you can’t be there


About me

Hi, I'm Karen

Through a lifetime of caring for a whole array of animals, from my own cats, dogs and horses, to volunteering at our local Cuddles cat rescue centre. I understand what it’s like to have pets and what a big part of our lives they are. Holidays and even going to work can become stressful situations if you do not have the right care at hand for your four legged friends.

Pets Time's aim is to provide the best care possible for all your pets, but more importantly than that is to ensure they have lots of fun in my company! Together we can tailor a care plan to fit around your schedule, offering reliable dog walking, whatever the weather, and calling in on home visits for cats, puppies, rabbits, birds and reptiles. Making their lives a little happier and your life a lot easier when you are unable to be there.

I am a certified pet first aider, and to give you complete peace of mind, fully insured and CRB checked too. Covering the entire Grimsby and Cleethorpes area and surrounding villages in N.E Lincolnshire. I travel around in an unmarked van, as your security and privacy is my foremost concern.

This is my own business and all of the care is performed by myself. So you will know exactly who is looking after your pet and how high my standards will be.

Dog walking

Before taking your dog on their first walk, I will visit you at your home to meet you and your pooch for a free consultation and answer any questions that you might have about the service. 

Dogs are walked individually or in a groups with no more than three others, with any off the lead exercise only with the owners written permission and if we are confident of recall. Their behaviour is monitored and carefully managed to ensure everyone is safe and having a good time. Dogs can be walked at the local park, beach or woodland and dried, fed and watered when they return tired and happy.

If desired, photos can be sent to show your dogs’ day out so that you can see them having fun! Enabling you to relax in the knowledge that they are happy and in good hands.

Unfortunately we can't walk aggressive dogs or group walk bitches in season.


Prices start from £10 per walk, second dog from the same family £5.

Puppies & older dogs

For puppies who haven’t yet completed their course of vaccinations, we will take them into your garden for the toilet and a play. With a selection of toys and games we will keep their minds stimulated and help reinforce their training during our visit.

For both puppies and veterans we recommend two shorter walks, in the morning and then afternoon. This reduces stress of being left alone and provides company and attention if staying in. We will also clean up any little “accidents” if you show us where the products are kept.


Prices from £9



Cats particularly prefer to stay in their own home, if you are away holiday, as they are less stressed by your absence and more comfortable in their environment. I offer this service to all small animals, that you would rather not disturb from their usual routine. To make this work for you I can pop round a couple of times a day to feed, clean out litter trays and play with your pet and of course give them lots of hugs. 


Whilst doing this I offer much more than just pet visiting, by also turning lights on/off, move post from the door mat, water plants etc. giving the impression that your home is occupied. My vehicle and clothing is unbranded so that every visit is as discrete as possible.

Extra animals are not charged for providing everything can be done within the time arranged.

Prices from £7

Small Animal Boarding

I also offer a superior small animal hotel in my purpose built, fox proof ‘shed’, which contains spacious hutches which are cleaned out daily, replenished with generous bedding and then disinfected after every boarder. Rabbits and guinea pigs will have daily use of the large all weather exercise area and the outdoor exercise pen, British weather permitting!

As small animals can be very fussy with changes to their normal food we ask that you provide your pets own food, but this will be supplemented with a daily supply of fresh hay, fruit and vegetables.


Prices from £3 per night with a minimum 3 night stay



"During my recent illness I have been unable to take my dog out for walks so I called upon the services of Karen at Pets Time, I found her extremely reliable, trustworthy and my dog always returned happy and ready for a good sleep! An excellent service, which I would highly recommend to anybody."

"A big huge thank you for looking after Charlie and Brandy while I was away. Receiving pictures of the boys out enjoying themselves on their walks gave me such a lift that it made it so much easier to enjoy myself while I was away from them. "
