House sit prices (Please note this is a 20 to 24 hours live-in service)

  • 1 dog £30.00 per day.
  • 2 dogs £40.00 per day. 2nd dog £10.
  • 3 dogs £50.00 per day. 2nd and 3rd dogs £10 each.
  • 4 dogs £60.00 per day. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th dogs £10 each.

For house sits, please note that the fee is generally applied for the number of dogs but may include other pet care. Where there are multiple pets in a household, there may be a top-up fee depending on the requirements of the individual animals.

House sitting is provided by Alison Campbell – the owner of Custom Canine Care – and references can be provided. I rarely house sit anywhere that I can’t take my own small (robustly social) pug cross, Raffi. I am allergic to cats, so I don’t usually stay in households that include cats.

The fee also includes one daily hour-long walk (or two shorter walks), plus plenty of toilet breaks, garden and indoor playtime and affection – including outdoor scent games and Parkour when the weather allows. If you feel your dog(s) need more walking/activities than this we can negotiate extra time/costs.

We do not provide Home Boarding for dogs or small animals.
