It’s Nice to Meet You 🙂
This is Our Story…
How Pet Checkers Began
From Our Own Needs and High Expectations
Pet Checkers was founded in 2013 when we were going on holiday and needed someone to come in and look after our two cats, Freckles and Milo.
Our cats are our babies (and Milo thinks he’s a dog!) so only the very best would do. We knew exactly what we wanted from a pet care company but couldn’t find anyone that could meet our expectations or that we liked or trusted.
So, after paying a friend to look after our cats, we decided to start Pet Checkers and formed the company while we were on holiday.
Since then, Pet Checkers has grown to become of Lincoln’s biggest and most trusted pet care companies. Starting out with just the two of us, we have grown quickly and now have six members of staff.
We owe a massive thanks to all of our customers for being a part of our journey – we wouldn’t exist without you and we hope you’ll continue to be a part of our story.
Our ‘PET’ Code of Ethics
The Driving Force Behind Our Business
Our goal is for everything we do…
Our consultations, services, our relationships with you, our relationships with your pets, the way we present ourselves and the inner workings of our business – EVERYTHING will live up to the standards of our ‘PET’ code.
We’ll conduct ourselves professionally at all times. Everything we do is in the best interests of the animals we care for. We’ll never take on a client just for the sake of profit. We will always stand by our beliefs and will turn work down if we believe the welfare of the animals is compromised.
We will treat our clients, their pets and family, our staff and anyone with who we come into contact with respect for their thoughts, feelings and opinions. We will always be there for our clients and their pets during hard times and always strive to be more than ‘just the pet sitter’.
We will never forget or take for granted the amount of trust you put in us. We will always keep your keys, personal information, possessions and your pets safe. We will vet and monitor all staff regularly to make sure we maintain the high standards we set for ourselves.

The People Who Make Pet Checkers Great
Because of nature of what we do, we’re really selective about the people we bring in to work with us. We have a thorough interview process and all our staff are insured and criminal record checked. As a result we have a really good team of people that help make Pet Checkers what it is.
Vicki is the reason Pet Checkers exists. The company is her baby and she’s the person who’ll come and see you on your consultation. She spends most of her days in our custom-built salon, grooming the pooches of Lincoln.
Jack of All Trades
Ben has helped Vicki grow Pet Checkers into the business it is today. He built our beautiful website and he also runs social media. He also has that certain ‘something’ which makes him especially good with puppies and nervous dogs.
Chief Pet Carer
Debs is one of those people we wish we could have ten of. She spends her days walking dogs and looking after our cleints pets. Debs has that strong caring streak in her which our clients find reassuring and is why everyone loves her.
Dog Walker / Equine Expert
Darcie is fantastic. She’s our equine expert and she’s also trained gun dogs to a very high standard. She’s currently at university studying animal management and behaviour. Darcie is super likeable and our clients are very fond of her.
Katie has degrees in animal behaviour and conservation. Despite her tiny size, she can handle huge dogs with ease, often putting the rest of us to shame! Her abilities and bubbly personality make her a key member of our team.
What Our Clients Say…
A Few Reviews From Happy Pet Parents
I love holidays with my fur boys but sometimes it’s nice to get away and completely chill out. When I do, it’s Pet Checkers that I want looking after my boys. Excellent service.
– Annette Blanchard
Vicki looked after my huge dog Piper for 8 days whilst housesitting, and was brilliant with her. Piper is looking forward to seeing Vicki again, so glad I found Petcheckers!
– Jody Taylor
Amazing service. To come back to 2 indoor cats after a week away and to find them happy, content and calm is incredible. And my flat didn’t smell bad either!
