About Us

Paul Helen & Hardy
With our first client, Hardy, back in 2010.

Pet Guardians is a family-run business which was set up in 2010 to provide a valuable service providing a friendly and cost effective way to ensure that your pets are looked after in the familiar surroundings of their own home.

We are not a franchise - we have built our business from nothing to an impressive client list of over 40 happy customers and their pets.

In the 11 years that we had our last cat, Mo, we didn't go on holiday once because we refused to put him in a cattery and didn't want to burden friends and family with a rather difficult (and spoiled!) cat who was fed several times a day, was often sick and would foam dramatically from the mouth at any whiff of a strange scent - like something out of Hound of the Baskervilles!

There were no professional services like Pet Guardians around to take care of him in our absence so, after he passed away and we had both found ourselves out of work with no new jobs in sight, we set up our own.

Owned and run by husband and wife team, Paul & Helen Drinkwater, Pet Guardians provide a range of services for pets and their owners from dog walking to pet feeding.

We have both owned and looked after various types of pets in our lives including dogs, cats, hamsters, coldwater and tropical fish and rabbits so we are experienced in the care of a wide range of pets. We currently have 2 cats of our own. (Ozzie & Ziggy)

Since we began, we can also add chickens, ducks, terrapins, guinea pigs, rats, budgies, parakeets and bearded dragons to the ever-growing list of pets we have looked after!

We have looked after/walked a 3 legged dog, 2 deaf dogs, a nearly-blind dog, a deaf cat, cats & dogs on medications, a cat with a psychological condition and several elderly cats & dogs. Not much fazes us.

We are based in Christchurch and at present we cover the areas shown on the home page.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. You can e-mail us at info@pet-guardians.co.uk or telephone 07963 023593 to discuss your requirements. We are fully insured.
