About Us
Liz lives in Ilkeston with her husband Simon, daughter Charlotte and two cats Zebedee and Jess. She decided to set up Smiling Cats and Dogs to provide a reliable, caring and dependable pet sitting and dog walking service in Ilkeston, Heanor, Eastwood and surrounding areas.

Liz, Simon and Charlotte are all animal lovers! Their cats are very much part of the family! In the past, they have owned dogs, rabbits, ducks and rodents to name a few.

They will offer a pet sitting and dog walking service to support you when you can't be there for your pet. They will work with you to keep to your pets' routine as much as possible. If you need to go away at short notice, get in touch. They will do everything possible to accommodate you. They really are the perfect family to look after your pet with the love, care and attention they deserve. There will be plenty of smiles all round!

Smiling Dogs Academy - Dog Training
Liz has worked with dogs for many years and decided to expand the business and offer a dog training service as well. After gaining a dog training diploma with the Centre of Excellence and through a lot of hard work, she has launched the Smiling Dogs Academy! Liz uses a methodology in her training called Positive Reinforcement, which is the encouragement of good behaviour with carefully timed rewards. It is a kind, careful and effective training method that allows a dog to learn a plethora of good behaviour while having a lot of fun in the process. Liz also uses clicker training and target stick training which you will see in her demonstrations.

Liz can offer private consultations paired with plenty of telephone/email support. She is hoping to offer puppy and dog training classes in the future and is applying for membership of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. Two x 1 hour sessions + telephone/email support start at £40 (£35 if you are an exisiting customer with Smiling Cats and Dogs).
