Dog Sitting Services

Looking for a dog sitter? We know how important it is that your four legged friends join you on holiday – after all, they are family too. Whilst a lot of places in Northumberland are dog friendly, such as most beaches, pubs and certain attractions, there are some that are pet free.

We offer a dog sitting service for your pampered pooch whilst you visit a pet-free attraction such as Cragside House or Alnwick Castle and Gardens, go out for an evening meal or even a full day event such as a wedding. The dog sitting is organised by Coquet Cottages but the sitting is carried out independently by the individual sitter.*

*Please note, we are only able to offer our dog-sitting services to properties that are in our portfolio

We can feed, walk and of course, cuddle your dog(s) whilst you are out (depending on their needs). We don’t let dogs off the lead during walks and we don’t walk them near to other dogs either. Your dog(s) won’t be left at any point during the sitting, so they will never be left alone. For those that prefer a more personal service than taking their dog to a kennel, this is much more comforting to your dog, where they will be cared for in the comfortable surroundings of their holiday home which they have gotten used to during their stay, rather than a strange kennel.
