Laura pursued her love for animals through her education and career choices.  Over the last 10 years, Laura has held the role of an Animal Welfare Officer with responsibility for enforcing the standards of care that pet shops, breeders, kennels and catteries must adhere to.  When it comes to providing accommodation and care of your pet, few people are as well qualified, experienced and knowledgeable as Laura.

Our Services
Small Animal Boarding

Housed in our purpose built and insulated pet lodge, you can rest assured that your beloved pet is safe, secure, warm and relaxed.

Just two miles from Dyce Airport and set within a 6-acre smallholding, we enjoy an idyllic countryside location.  Our accommodation is double glazed, insulated and has running water and electricity to ensure all our guests enjoy clean, dry, appropriately lit and warm lodgings.

We are happy to board rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, hedgehogs, ferrets and more.  We can cater for special diets and will provide fresh hay, water and veg daily.  We recommend that you bring some of your pet’s own food to prevent upset stomachs from a change in diet.

Home Visits

Not all pets require full-time lodging and we understand that with busy schedules to keep, owners are not always able to keep up with the demands of their animal.

Goval pets can offer a tailored home visit package to suit the needs of you and your pet.  Whether it’s a quick 10-minute check-up or a longer and more involved visit, we can adjust the service to meet your requirements.

Feeding, petting, providing fresh water, mucking out, changing bedding and much more can be undertaken at a competitive rate.  Our home visit service is available on a one-off, short-term and long-term basis.  Simply get in touch to outline your requirements and we will provide you with a quote.

Lunchtime Let Outs

Dogs are companion animals that need regular interaction and the opportunity to relieve themselves.

Our lunchtime let-out service is ideal for dog owners that are unable to pop home during the day to tend to the needs of their pet.  The service can be tailored to meet your requirements and could be as simple as a 10-minute visit or a longer interaction complete with a stimulating walk and play.

Routine medication can be administered by prior negotiation and the let out service is available to cover short-term periods or on an ongoing basis.

One-to-One Puppy Training

Few things are more fun and exciting than an adorable new puppy.  However, to make life easier down the line and to prevent future problems, it’s vital that training is undertaken at an early stage.

Goval Pets offer a one-to-one puppy training service to provide you with the best advice and guidance and to acclimatise your puppy to your house rules.  Having spent 5 years as a Dog Warden and 10 years as an Animal Welfare Officer, proprietor Laura has extensive experience in dog training, handling and care.

Using positive-based training techniques, Laura can show you how to train basic commands as well as tackle problems such as barking, pulling on the lead or jumping up.
