Welcome to Gerry's Home from Home Pet Care Service

  Let me tell you a bit about myself: 
My name is Geraldine Langdon and I offer a Home Visiting Service for pets to clients throughout the local area.
    These services range from Cat Feeding to Walking your Dog, Even to look after your Chickens.
  The business is run by myself Gerry with the help of my husband Gareth
 who will accompany me to help out or to cover in busy times and sickness etc.
 This service is designed for individuals who would rather not have to use boarding establishments.
 I live in Stone, Berkeley Gloucestershire and have kept pets for many years. With my love of animals I decided on a new career in 2006 which is when I set up my own business ''Gerry's Home from Home'', this has grown steadily over the years due to word of mouth or through recommendations.

        I  am fully Insured including loss of keys, I have in the past been police checked as I was a Coordinator of our local Neighbourhood watch and my Husband has an up to date ENHANCED DBS certificate.

Sorry but we can no longer offer the Dog Home Boarding service
We have re-homed a beautiful Newfoundland Dog and having found that some of the Home boarders were frightened & intimidated by his large size we have now made the decision that as he is now our main priority and a big part of our family it would  not fair to put him or prospective boarders into this situation, so regrettably we can no longer offer our Home Boarding service.

 Dog Walking Services & the
Lifting of Lock-down Due to Covid 19
We now have the New Government guidelines and restrictions for Dog Walking as of July 2020.
These Guidelines have made it difficult for us to offer 
our Dog Walking Services to any New Clients at the moment
 Were sorry but it is with regret that we can no longer take 
on any New Dog Walking Bookings
at this present time.
“There remains no evidence that pets are implicated in the transmission of Coronavirus to people and infection of the pet is unlikely, but that there is some risk of the virus being carried by pets and their belongings. However, the risk of transmission between infected clients and business staff remains.”
with this in mind
Any time spent inside your home is now kept to a minimum for the Safety for both ourselves and for our clients.
We are now taking Cat Care Holiday Bookings from July 2020 on wards
