Wedding Chaperone Service

Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding!

Would you like your much loved pet to be included in your special day? Barnfield Pet Services fully understands that your dog is so much more than just a pet. They are a much loved member of your family, so why should they be left out of one of the most important days of your life? We will make this possible for you with our bespoke wedding chaperone service. We are professional, friendly and fully insured.

Our wedding chaperone service will include but not limited to:

  • Initial consultation in your home to meet you and your dog
  • A walk prior to leaving for the venue so your dog is calm for your special day
  • Brush before leaving for the venue
  • Transporting your dog to the venue
  • Care during the photographs
  • Ensuring your dog’s welfare needs are met throughout the day
  • Short walk before returning your dog to your chosen location
  • Typically this covers 2 hours at the venue

Our wedding chaperone service can be tailor made to suit your needs to provide you with complete peace of mind on your special day. In addition, we are also able to provide pet sitting in your own home for the remainder of the day or for your wedding night until your return the next day. If you require a pet sitter while you are relaxing on your honeymoon, we can provide this service too. Prices start from £180.

Please get in touch to arrange a consultation so we can design a package especially for you!


A Safe Place To Play

Barnfield Play Paddock is a secure field to hire for off lead play. It is available for exclusive use, however groups and breed meets are welcome by arrangement.

Dog FieldDog BoardingHome Stay

My husband and I moved down to Devon in 2014 and initially set up the 1.5 acre paddock as a secure play area for our own pack of rescue sighthounds.

As several of our dogs have little or no recall, having our own enclosed paddock with 6.5ft deer fencing meant that we could watch our dogs run whilst keeping them in sight.

As we got to know local dog owners in the area, I was increasingly asked if they could use our paddock. Since then I have opened the gates to all kinds of dogs who use our paddock for all kinds of reasons:

  • Training purposes
  • Reactive dogs
  • Exempted dogs
  • Dogs with no recall
  • Dogs in season
  • Elderly dogs who need a quiet place to play
  • Rehabilitation of rescue dogs

Option 1 - 30 minutes- £5
Option 2 - 1 hour- £8
Option 3 - Group bookings and breed meets

“We used Barnfield Pet Services to look after our slightly anxious, not always perfectly behaved, lurcher/deerhound for a week. The booking process was efficient and Lisa, the sitter, came to meet us and Mac before our holiday. We were delighted with the service as Lisa clearly understood Mac’s needs, took him on all his favourite walks, sent us regular updates with photos and they appeared to enjoy each other’s company. We will certainly use Barnfield Pet Services for all our future holidays. ”

- Susan Morris

“We left our 2 greyhounds, 1 quirky whippet and our ancient cat in Barnfield Pet Service's care for a fortnight for the first time this summer. Alison herself took on the task as she has a great understanding and knowledge of sighthounds in particular which our dogs recognised immediately and they completely welcomed her into their home and life. Alison accommodated the demanding affection needs of our very elderly cat with great compassion and tenderness. We were made to feel completely confident and reassured in all our interactions with Barnfield Pet Services. Alison also regularly posted us news of our fur creatures during our absence. On our return our pets were clearly unperturbed by our absence! Their welfare had been Alison's priority and they were calm and happy with shiny coats! Alison also kindly kept our feeding routine for our hedgehogs and wild birds - plus she left everything in our home as we left it making it all a pleasure to come home to. We would have NO hesitation in using Barnfield Pet Services. We are booking again. Rosie & Jim, Exeter.”

“I used this company for there overnight pet sitting service. This was the best thing I ever did, Alison was super knolagable, helpful and respectful in my home. Having this service was brilliant as the continuity was kept for my dog and he wasn't stressed at all as Alison followed my routeen to the T. I will definatly be using this service again in the future and I can't rate this business highly enough. ”

- Holly Williams

“We can't fault our experience with Barnfield Pet sitting service. Our two greyhounds loved Karen, our sitter, on first meeting and were confident enough to go back to sleep just 20' after we left the house. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this service. Alison makes everything easy to arrange and responds to every enquiry. Many thanks.”

- Kate Woolman

“As new clients, at very short notice, Alison made it possible for an amazing lady to come and stay at my house and look after a frail elderly dog Rosie, who I could not put in kennels. Lesley was like the "Mary Poppins" of the doggy world and I cannot express how amazing she was in caring for my dog and enabling my husband and I to go away for the weekend (planned months ago!). Lesley went above and beyond in trying to tempt her to eat and prepared some fantastic yummy meals. Also looked after my guinea pigs, no complaints there either! 100% great business and would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Barnfield Pet Services!”

- Elizabeth White

“Our dogs had perfect care when we were away and seemed to have found a new friend in Alison. I would highly recommend Barnfield pet sitting services.”

- Andrew Ruffle

“After our former cat-sitters were unable to continue for health reasons, Alison found us the wonderful Jane and Roger! This was the first time we were leaving our "new" rescue cat, who has been with us for less than 4 months. We were therefore a little nervous about leaving him. We need not have worried! On our return we found a contented happy cat, who had clearly "bonded" with his carers. He was his usual bouncy confident little self and we could not have been more delighted. We have already arranged for Jane and Roger to sit for us again for our next 3 holidays, and are about to firm up dates with them for one more. We are entirely sure that our home and (most importantly) our cat, are in safe hands while we are away. "Thank you Alison" says Max," when can they come and play with me again!"”

- Cynthia Setter

“Alison spent two weeks at our house looking after our Greyhound and Lurcher. We had regular updates and photos of their trips to the fields for walks. I felt they were much calmer and settled on our return. The older Lurcher can be a bit fussy with his food and Alison went out of her way to ensure he ate well. He always loses a little weight when he goes to kennels but ate really well whilst Alison gave him her personal attention. Our Greyhound can be really 'clingy' and unsettled after kennels, but was much happier in her own environment and I suspect with much attention and cuddles from Alison. I would highly recommend her.”

- Pat Milton

“Alison has now looked after our beloved border collie's on four occasions with another booked for later this year. We are delighted we have found Alison - she has been wonderful with our dogs and we would highly recommend her. She is very professional, dedicated and is a true animal lover. We have no qualms whatsoever about leaving our dogs and home in her very capable hands.”

- Jim and Jane Bessell
