Pawfect Pet Carers - Pet Sitting, Dog Home Boarding & Dog Walking Services
in Ipswich, Suffolk and all surrounding areasPawfect Pet Carers provide a pet sitting, home dog boarding and dog walking service based in Ipswich and covering all surrounding areas. We offer the personal touch when it comes to looking after your pets.
My name is Michael and I have been an animal lover and pet owner for many years so I am only too aware of how important it is to find the right carer for your pets when you need one. I therefore decided I would offer a range of services to pet owners that I knew would provide peace of mind.
At Pawfect Pet Carers, we take the care of your beloved pets extremely seriously and our aim is to provide you with a professional, reliable and trustworthy service, tailored to you and your pet’s every need.
Whether it is walking your dog, pampering your puppy, caring for your cat or looking after your small animals at your home or ours, we provide a variety of services to you and your pets. Prior to you committing to our services, we will come to your home for a free, no obligation consultation, which allows us to meet and, most importantly, your pets to get to know us.
I am fully licensed, insured, DBS checked and am registered with NarpsUK. I have completed an International Open Academy Course in Animal Training and Pet Sitting, covering dogs, cats, birds, small animals, reptiles and fish and including disease, health, hygiene and first aid.
We offer a care service for your dogs, cats, small animals, be they birds, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles or any other creature of the non-feline or canine variety. We will clean out and feed your pets and spend time with them in your absence, ensuring their usual routine is maintained throughout.
Puppy and Kitten Visits
We offer general visits to your home, for example, to assist with new puppies or kittens you are trying to toilet train, to provide company and toilet breaks for older animals who are not now as mobile as they once were or as one-off visits to break up a long day when you are away for an unusually long period of time, perhaps at work, on a course, attending a hospital appointment or having a well deserved night away.
We offer a taxi service in our fully equipped and secure van to assist with getting your pets to any necessary appointments, such as grooming parlours, the vets, kennels/catteries or any other appointments they may have.
We offer either one-to-one dog walking or group walking, whichever best suits your dog. We know that some dogs like to socialise in a group, whilst others prefer one-to-one attention, therefore whatever your dog prefers we will provide.
We adhere to the NarpsUK Code of Practice and will only ever walk a maximum of four dogs at a time, so as to ensure that each dog gets all the attention he requires.
We vary the location of the walks on which we take your dog so that it remains fun, interesting and stimulating for them. When we return your dogs home, we shall make sure they are towel dried and have their muddy paws cleaned.
The only thing we require from you is that your dog is fully up-to-date with their vaccinations.
“Pawfect Pet Carers have had my Scottish Terrier board a few times and she is always happy and exhausted when I pick her up! Michael goes above and beyond to help! Great service! Kiltie will be back!!”

“I can wholeheartedly recommend Michael from Pawfect Pet Carers. He took great care of our 3 dogs, Kibo, Bailey (7 month old Newfoundland Pup) and Jassie, walking them at lunchtime whilst we were away for 2 weeks on holiday. His approach, before even walking the dogs, was very professional and he took the time to listen to our requirements and needs. He also took the time to learn about the dogs, their individual characters and behavioural traits. Testament to his abilities to connect with our dogs was noticeable when he popped around after the period of cover and the way the dogs responded to him. Thank you very much and we will definitely be using his services again.”
- Steve Dyson
“I have known Michael for sometime now I would like to say for those who are looking for someone to care /look after their pets I can confirm he is a genuine trustworthy kind animal lover.”
- Paul Law
“Lola & Finley have a new best friend in their lives. Michael from Pawfect Pet Carers has been walking our two dogs at lunchtime this week and we couldnâ€™t be more pleased. At our introduction meeting we were able to talk about the dogs, their personalities and our preference for how things would be and Michael has done that brilliantly and left us an update after each walk. So reassuring! We will be working with Michael on a regular basis from now on!”
- Sue Allison
“Thank you so much for walking Herbie, he was really relaxed when we got home and had obviously enjoyed it! We loved reading what he had gotten up to as well!”
- Emma Ward
“Thank you so much for having Roxy for a few days. Couldn't have wished for a better couple to look after my puppy. Home from home with loving, caring people.”
- Caroline Hanley

“Thank you for looking after our gorgeous boy Bagheera. It was lovely going away and not having to worry so thank you.”

“We were in a tight spot and I remembered that Michael had started the business recently. With 48 hours notice he had tweaked his busy schedule and came to our house three days running to walk Lola. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and Lola would too.”
- David & Kerry Dring
“Thank you so much for having our dog Murphy to stay for 10 nights whilst we enjoyed our holiday. We won't hesitate to use you again and highly recommend you.”
- Clare Cronin
“Michael did a great job looking after my seven rats while I was away for a week. He even cleaned them out for me before I got home and gave medicine to my poorly boy! It was great that they could be looked after at home as it stresses them out if I have to take them to a boarding service. A 5 star service that I would wholeheartedly recommend. You will be leaving your pets in very capable hands!”
- Anna Booth
“Thank you for looking after Digby whilst we were away on our holidays. He had a great time and looked really happy. I would definitely recommend Pawfect Pet Carers if you need a friendly, safe and welcoming place for your doggy when on your hols.”
- Stacey Dobell
“Michael took great care of my 3 rats for me while I was on holiday, giving them all love and cleaning them daily, as well as providing medicine and extra care for one of them that wasn't so well. It was so lovely to be sent pictures of them while I was on holiday and really helped to put my mind at ease. Would recommend to anyone looking for someone to look after their pets while they're away.”
- Becky Lintott
“Can't recommend Michael enough. He looked after my little 8 year old Chihuahua x Jack Russell, Archie and he loved it! Michael gave me regular updates so I could see Archie was settling in. Archie will be returning; think I'll go on holiday more often, lol. I know there's someone I trust and know he will look after Archie as if he was his own. A home away from home. Thanks Michael.”
- Samantha Hart
“This was the first time we'd used a pet sitter and Michael was great! Will definitely use his services again. Thanks so much.”

- Jean Firman
“I can highly recommend Pawfect Pet Carers as a friendly and professional service. Molly was a little nervous when I dropped her off but Michael sent me a text message to let me know she had settled in well - by the time I came to collect her, Michael was her new best friend and I think she'd had a better holiday than me! Thank you Michael and Shelley for looking after Molly so well.”
- Karen Street
“Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend Pawfect Pet Carers - professional but most important of all, personal; lovely 'holiday' home to many lovely dogs. My border collie, Luna, who needs A LOT of exercise always comes back home knackered, it's such a relief to know she's taken care of like one of their own. Michael is always flexible and very reliable and I look forward to having him care for my dog for the foreseeable future. Thank you!!”
- Jade Thirtle
