Perfeqpets Keep it Local as they care for pets

LINDA Hams thinks she has one of the best jobs in the world - as the owner of Perfeqpets she spends hours walking around the local countryside with a variety of dogs which she cares for while their owners are at work or away.
“We have a brilliant time,” says Linda. “I sometimes walk up to six dogs at a time, I put together dogs that really get on well, so they can play together. But or course I also offer single dog walking for dogs that prefer to be on their own.
“I walk dogs for up to an hour, when their owners are away, at work, or not well enough to give them a really good run.”
Linda, Dip CABC, has been training and working with animals for more than 20 years, and she is a qualified animal behaviour counsellor.
She is keen to support the Ely Standard’s Keep It Local campaign, and says it is her local knowledge that means she can offer a good service to clients.
“I am currently preparing to put our walking routes on our web site,” said Linda, “owners often ask me about where to walk, I know the area well and can always find a suitable walk.”
Perfeqpets is prepared to look after any sort of pet. “I am looking after 24 alpacas next year; and I occasionally look after a corn snake and a fire lizard. I even have a new client who has a room full of reptiles.”
Linda has two members of staff at Perfeqpets, and between them they offer day care for dogs, dog walking, cat sitting, small animal visits, horse care, and they can even look after animals on small holdings.
Linda added: “I now offer some private behavioural dog training.”
The owner of Ned the lurcher, Linda also has two horses and in the past has represented Great Britain in the world Equestrian Games.
