We would love you to be friends with us on all of the above


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

About me

Through a lifetime of caring for a whole array of four legged friends, I understand what it’s like to have pets and what a big part of our lives they are.  Our own family presently includes 4 horses, 2 dogs and 7 feral cats, which were re-homed from our local Cuddles cat rescue centre, where I also work as a volunteer.

Pets Time provides tailored care plans to fit around your schedule, no matter what help you might need with your pets. Offering a 5* holiday home from home for dogs, a range of flexible, reliable dog walking and cat sitting services and a high quality small animal hotel for rabbits and guinea pigs in a purpose built environment.

We are certified pet first aiders, and to give you complete peace of mind and fully insured and CRB checked too.  

Our 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 our company!

We service the entire Grimsby and Cleethorpes area and surrounding villages in N.E Lincolnshire. We are more than happy to work further afield for an additional cost.


Hi, I'm Karen


"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. "

If you are looking for a dog walking service we will visit you at your home to meet you and your dog and to complete an assessment for free. 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. Dogs can be walked at the local park, beach, woodland or wherever you prefer and dried, fed and watered on return.


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


Sorry 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.

Dog walking

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. 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 provide 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 for a 30 minute visit

Pet Courier Service

We are also insured to offer a pet taxi service for those tricky times or regular appointments to the vets or the groomers that you need any help with.


If your dog is staying with us while you are on holiday, we can arrange to collect him/her on the date of your departure so that you have one less thing to worry about.

Prices dependant on distance and length of time required.

Dog Hotel

Our aim is for you to go away safe in the knowledge that your best friend is being loved and cared as you would at home. Ensuring that your dog has a great holiday too! We love dogs of all shapes and sizes and don’t mind if they want to sleep in the bedroom, climb on the sofa or even hide our favourite shoes!

We visit your home to meet you and your dog and take a detailed profile of your any behaviour quirks, exercise, sleeping and feeding routine so that he settles in the minute you go away. If you would like to book a sleepover first so that you are completely confident that your dog will be happy that of course is possible too.


£20 a day

We offer a superior small animal hotel in our 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.


We will look after hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice in their own cages and are willing to collect / return your pet for a small charge.

Prices from £3 per night or £2 if staying in own cage with a minimum 3 night stay

Small Animal Boarding

If you are going away and prefer to leave your cat at home, we can pop round a couple of times a day to feed, clean out litter trays and play or fuss your cat. We offer more than just cat sitting by also turning lights on/off, move post from the door mat, water plants etc. to give the impression that your home is occupied.

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

Prices from £7 for a 20 minute visit
