Welcome to Petpal, dog walker and pet sitter service for the Leighton Buzzard area. We offer a broad range of services and flexibility to suit you and your pets needs.
My name is Amanda. I’m based in Leighton Buzzard and have been successfully running my dog walking and pet sitting business Petpal, now in its fifth year, covering all of the Leighton Buzzard and Linslade area.
I have always loved animals and have had the pleasure of owning many over my lifetime. I currently have a Labrador called Biggles and a cat called Marmite.
I love the company of animals, leading an active life and being in the fresh air in all weathers. Dog walking is the perfect occupation for me as it combines all of these things.
I have bred rabbits and guinea pigs and owned many other small animals including rat’s, gerbil’s, mice and a chinchilla.
The most unusual pets I have ever been asked to look after were a Tarantula and a Spotted Gecko.
Cat & Pet Sitting
If you are going away on holiday, business or for a hospital stay I can come to your home and take care of your cat/cats.
Cats are very territorial creatures, and much prefer being in their own surroundings. I can come round once or twice a day. I will wash and replenish food and water bowls, clean out litter trays and offer your cat some company and a lap to sit on.
The added bonus of this is your house will still appear occupied. I will open and close curtains and switch lights on and off as appropriate. I will also put your bin out on collection day if requested.
Other small pets i.e. rabbits and guinea pigs can be looked after similarly, with cages or hutches cleaned out when necessary.

Here at Petpal, we pride ourselves on giving your dog ‘happy walks!’ This means that we interact and play with your dog, giving him or her that quality time they will look forward to every day we visit.
During dog walking in Leighton Buzzard, we can provide balls, Frisbees, and toys.
We appreciate some people may not want their dog ‘off lead’ if so we pay extra attention to ensure your dog is having a good time…always.
I only walk a maximum of three/four dogs on group walks to avoid the situation where you have a large pack. It’s also easier to control a smaller number of dogs, and it ensures I can give each dog the attention it needs.
Only dogs that are compatible will be put together on group walks. A boisterous young adolescent who likes to bounce around with other dogs would not be put with an elderly dog who is happy with a Leisurely stroll.
Some dogs prefer to be walked on their own if maybe they are nervous or perhaps have behavioral issues making them harder to handle and so require individual attention. Individual walks can be requested. There is a slightly higher cost for this service.
Poops & Scoops
We have a refreshing attitude to poops while walking your dog around Leighton Buzzard area we always clean up afterward, regardless where it is, not just on a public footpath.
We also provide poop bags as part of our service and only put in Leighton Buzzard’s dog waste designated bins. You may be surprised to know we also check for any adverse contents such as blood and let you know immediately by text.
We take pride in providing a professional and reliable dog walking service in Leighton Buzzard.
