Dog Walking & Pet Visting. Buckinghamshire, Aylesbury

A new puppy or kitten, holidays and weekends away, a busy working life or a family emergency - these are just some of the reasons why people use a pet sitting/visiting and dog walking service like A&S.

Meet A&S Small Pet Services: Having used various pet sitting services for our own pets during holidays and weekends away, I decided to set up my own pet sitting and dog walking business in 2013. I felt that at that time there was a gap in the market for a pet sitter/dog walker who was not only reliable, friendly and trustworthy but also someone who would communicate with me regularly about my pet and highlight any concerns they may have had about changes in my pets behaviour, eating habits or if they felt they were generally off-colour or unwell. So A&S was born.

My background: Growing up around pigeons, dogs, tortoises, rabbits and guinea pigs gave me a love of animals and how to best care for them. My own Father was nick named 'The Bird Man' as he was the first point of call in our road for people to bring wild birds that were poorly or couldn't fly. I was always keen to help out with a home made splint made out of lolly sticks or small pieces of wood, and many of these worked and had great success!

A love of animals: Fast forward into adulthood and my love for animals hasn't changed. We have shared our home with 2 tabby cats, one of whom lived to the ripe old age of 17 and the other sadly who was under one year old when we lost him. We have rescued a couple of pairs of guinea pigs and currently have just the one who is now just turning 5 years old. We initially rescued 6 ex-battery hens when we first moved to Bierton 6 years ago. They were a great introduction into hen keeping and we now have 3 hens that keep us in omlettes and boiled eggs!

Looking ahead: We also have an English Springer Spaniel called Hend, who my husband and I spend most of our free time with. Unfortunately our lovely dog suffers with anxiety and is quite an apprehensive dog around new situations and places. Having an anxious dog who finds it difficult to remain calm and settle has taken me on a long journey of reading books, seeing various trainers, attending various workshops and generally having a keen interest in all areas of enrichment for dogs and other pets. My love for learning about dogs and science-based positive dog training has taken me on a 2 year journey of study with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). I am currently finishing the Advanced Dog Training Course and have been an assistant dog trainer since August 2017. I also completed a pet first aid training course in June 2016.

Customer Testimonials

"We feel very lucky to have found Sonja. She is lovely to deal with, very reliable and has helped us out on many occasions at short notice. Not only do we feel that our cats are in safe hands with her, but in addition Sonja will kindly do other little jobs for us during her visits such as watering plants, opening and closing curtains etc. We cannot recommend her highly enough." S. Leary, July 2018

"Really happy with the services provided by A&S. I have peace of mind when I'm at work knowing that my dog will be well looked after. I receive a text message from Sonja every time she checks on my boy. Because of my work I need flexibility in terms of dates and Sonja works with me on a weekly basis to find the best possible arrangement for the following week. I couldn't ask for a better service." D. Hinojasa, July 2018

"Amazing service, personal and reassuring, even when called on very last minute when my normal sitter let me down. Can't thank you enough." S. Chapman, April 2018

"We have used Sonja's services for our two cats for several years. Sonja has a lovely manner and understands their needs really well. One of our cats has ailments and Sonja is always keen to make sure she is fully aware of her health needs. We love getting messages to say all is OK and pics of the girls while we are away. Sonja also opens and closes our curtains for us, and picks up the post. Sonja is a gem!" J. Stiles, 2017

"Sonja has been walking our little Bichon for over a year now and we wouldn't be without her. She is friendly, reliable and plays with Molly just like we do. She always lets me know if Molly hasn't seemed herself and has been helpful in recommendations for treats, things like cool mats and toys. Would highly recommend her without a second thought." C Thomas, 2017

"We are new to the area and have a nervous ginger cat who has taken time to settle in his new surroundings. He is unsure and nervous of new people and we were worried about putting him in a cattery while going away. We found Sonja online and she came and paid us a visit and put our worries at ease. She came in to check on him, put down food, water and clean his tray, even putting our bins out and picking up our post. She has been brilliant, updating us on her visits and even sending pictures of TJ our cat, who came out of his shell. The cat was happy, and so are we. Great service, will be recommending her and using Sonja again!" C. Bing, 2017

"We have been using Sonja at A&S Small Pet Services for a number of years now and we couldn't be happier. We have a nervous rescue cat, Phoebe, and we used to hate going away as she would get very stressed but since Sonja has been looking after her she is always in great spirits when we return from our holidays. We don't have to worry as she keeps us informed on a daily basis of how Phoebe is doing, she always lets us know if she has any concerns and we do feel that having Sonja come in twice a day is certainly the best option for our cat. If we are away for more than two or three days she sends us photos of Phoebe (always looking totally relaxed and happy!) which is a lovely extra touch. Sonja has been totally reliable throughout and has never let us down. She goes out of her way to accommodate our requests for pet sitting, sometimes at short notice, which is so good of her as we know how busy she gets. All in all, we can't recommend A&S Small Pet Services highly enough." Colin and Frances Wilson

"We used A&S over Christmas and New Year to look after our fish, rabbits and chickens. Sonja provided updates on their wellbeing, as well as sending photos of them going about their usual business during our break and couldn't be more helpful or accommodating. Knowing that someone has experience of the same pets and similar values regarding their welfare is important and even more so when you are away. Thank you, we'll use you again." Adrian Osbourn

"We boarded our three guinea pigs with A&S for two weeks. Sonja provides a truly outstanding service; excellent facilities, a wonderful clean, quiet and well equipped environment and lots of thoughtful touches that create a home from home experience for your pets. It's a totally worry-free set up that allows you to enjoy your holiday. As word gets out about this business my strong advice would be to book quickly." Sarah Prestwood

"We used A&S over Christmas and New Year and they couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful, updating us regularly. Our cat absolutely loved Sonja and was so well looked after. They also informed us of alarms going off on our computer and looked after our Christmas tree too! I would 100% recommend this company and such a reasonable price knowing your pet is cared for in their own home and the house checked too. Thank you, we will use you again and again!" Helen Murnan

"I have used A&S and I am overwhelmed at the service received. Not only are they very professional but they are also very personalised and the service was tailored to my cat. Sonja is lovely and really looked after my Elle. I will definitely use this service again." Michaela Clarke
