GGL Pet Services

Pets are loyal and love you unconditionally and ask only for your attention and love in return.  For this reason I was inspired to try and make an original product aimed specifically for our four legged friends whilst also trying to include something for the owner.

Founded in May 2011 by Gillian Linnell,  based in Saddleworth, originally named GGL Pet Supplies as my vision was to have a online pet supplies store, this however was changed to GGL Pet Services as I found that I was getting more and more enquiries regarding pet sitting and dog walking.  My passion for animals and caring for them overtook my desire to stay purely retail and so the company was re-born.

I am Licensed by OMBC,  which is a legal requirement for home boarding animals, it is against the law to operate without this license. Having this licenses gives you the peace of mind, knowing that I have undergone stringent checks by a qualified officer and that I reach all the necessary standards required. I am Insured for Public and Product Liability and trained in Basic Pet First Aid and I am about to undertake a Level 2 qualification in Animal Care.

I have owned dogs, cats and horses not to mention goldfish and tortoises throughout my life, and I have a real passion to make my company the best in the area, paying attention to health and well being of all the animals that I care for in whichever capacity. I want to help YOU as my customer to give your pet the best and healthiest lifestyle possible. I am Insured and CRB Checked so you can rest assured that your pet will be well looked after whilst in my care.

A full report is always left with you as to how your pet has got on, what they have got up to and where they have been on their walks.

I want to encourage and support proper care and maintenance for your pet, I work to keep the prices low, and keep my product & Services to the highest quality.  I thrive on making my customers happy and listen to all feedback in order to continually improve my products and services.

Please feel free to browse the website and all the information therein, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Doggie Play Park

 

After teaming up with our local Doggy Play Park, we can now offer regular visits to the centre as part of our Pet Sitting package.  Here your dog can run around all day, playing with other dogs, chasing balls, and using the adventure playground, it’s really a lot of fun.  

 a 3,500sq ft, indoor doggy Park, where your dog can go to play while you are away.

The dogs learn how to behave around other dogs, and they lose the  desire to become destructive or stressed by the absence or their owners and very soon become happier well socialised dogs.

At the end of the day dogs are tired and content and ready to spend a peaceful evening at home after a tail wagging day.

It provides an entertaining, stimulating environment for your dog, where they can enjoy the days activities in safety.

With quiet areas for small dogs and puppies or dogs that are new, they are then gradually introduced into the main play area.

Each dog is given individual attention and care is taken to ensure newcomers are happy and confident.

Rest and play sessions are based on the individual dogs requirements,

E.G. puppies and older dogs can have longer rest periods and cuddles than more energetic dogs,

 

Why not give it at try! It’s only an extra £5 per visit.

Did you Know!

Did You Know (Chewing Gum)

As a dog walker there is nothing more annoying than people who spit chewing gum out onto the pavement, I spend a lot of time on my walks fishing chewing gum out of puppies and other dogs mouths.  Chewing gum contains a substance call Xylitol which is highly toxic and lethal to dogs, its not a joke, google it!  Chewing Gum can also become lodged in your dogs throat and cause choking or even block up the intestines which could also kill them. Chewing gum is a real threat to dogs and you must do everything you can to keep chewing gum away from your dog as it is a serious risk their life.

 

Did You Know   (Dog Fouling)

Places where you have to clean up: 

Public places e.g. 

  • Canal towpaths
  • Footpaths
  • Parks
  • Pavements
  • Roads
  • School playing fields 

Places where you do not have to clean up 

  • Agricultural land
  • Marshland
  • Moor or heath
  • Private gardens – but you must make sure that you do not allow droppings to create a ‘statutory nuisance’ and your dog must not stray into your neighbour’s garden
  • Roads – where the land is adjacent to roads with a speed limit of more than 40 miles per hour
  • Rural common land
  • Woodland 

Registered blind people in charge of a dog do not need to clean up (but any other person exercising a guide dog must clean up). 

Fines 

It is an offence to fail to remove dog faeces deposited by a dog under your control.

If you are issued with a fixed penalty notice for dog fouling, you have 14 days to pay the £80 penalty.

If no payment is received (or you disagree with the notice) you will be issued a summons (so you will have to appear atMagistrates Court).

If found guilty, you could be fined up to £1,000 for each offence.

New Verm-X product range

Verm-X are the only company in the world that exclusively focuses on producing natural parasite control for animals.  Before pharmaceutical formulations intervened, there were only natural ingredients. Verm-X offer animal keepers the opportunity to use an approach that has stoood the test of time – a far longer time than since the introduction of man made alternatives. 

What is Verm-X 

Verm-X is a 100% natural formulation that controls internal parasites whilst being gentle to the animals gut and digestive system.  Verm-X was initially launched for horses in 2002.  The concern for the volume of chemicals in use in the day to day management of animals brought Verm-X to create an extensive range in consultation with some of the most respected medical herbalists in the world.

They now have sucessful Verm-X formulations for horses, cows, poultry, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, sheep, garden birds, raptors, racing pigeons, wild boar, llamas and alpacas.

Why Choose Verm-X 

Verm-X consists of herbs that have  been used for centuries as a natural way to repel and control internal parasites.  Verm-X is therefore ideal for those wishing to find a natural way to address an important area of animal husbandry.

Verm-X products are approved for use in organic systems and are certified by the British Association of Holistic Nutrition and Medicine.

All Verm- X products are manufactured under licence by expert producers in theUKandEuropeto the highest standards. Pelleted products are produced in one of the UKs only low temperature pelleting facilities that prevents damage to the ingredients.

Verm-X products are made from unadulterated, non–GM natural ingredients.

Verm-X provides the widest range of applications, from liquids to pellets, treats, nuggets and powder, making Verm-X easy to feed and highly palatable to the animals.

Verm-X products use packaging that keep the contnts fresh, available in a variety of packs and sizes to suit the widest range of animal owners.

When purchasing Verm-X from your retailer, under current legislation, you will not be asked for any personal details, Verm-X is a 100% herbal formulation and therefore classified as a complementary feeding stuff for animals.

Gentler on the digestive system, Verm-X is ideal for senior animals and animals in competition as its natural formulation does not affect performance.

Being highly cost effective, Verm-X products are designed with both the animals and their owners in mind.

In October 2010 Verm-X was delighted to receive full Ethical Accreditation following stringent analysis conducted by an independent body, Ethical Accreditation is a highly respected mark of independent ensdorsement awareded by the Ethical Company Organisation which recognises significant corporate social responsibility

Keeping your pet safe in an emergency

 

If something happens to your pet, you will be in a rush to help, rushing in too fast may put you and the animal at risk.

Stop first to make sure you have time to think about the dangers, what could harm you? What action should you take? Will the animal hurt you? Is there traffic that could hit you?

Once you have assessed the scene you should then act and deal with the incident.  The whole time you are dealing with the animal, you need to take care as the animal itself could be a danger.  Other dangers you could have are:

  • Traffic
  • People
  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Fire or heat
  • Chemicals
  • Slip, trip hazards
  • Sharp Objects
  • Animals
  • And many more
Remember
  • Scene safety
  • Stop, Think, Act
  • Look for dangers at the start and the whole time you are caring for the animal
  • Your pet may be the danger to you
  • Decide what you are going to do (Vet, transporting the animal etc)
  • Take care with chemicals
  • If hurt by glass, make sure you are safe as well as the animal.

How Pets Show Pain

Animals cannot talk to us so they cannot tell us if they are in pain or where it hurts, unless there is an obvious wound or you have witnessed an accident whether this be a car accident or a fight with another animal.  So how can we tell when our pet is in pain?

More often than not you will notice a change in your pets behaviour, whether this be aggression towards you, or demanding your attention or even hiding away quietly and maybe whimpering.

Be aware of any changes to your pets behaviour and any signs that your pet could be in pain.  Check all over your pet
for any signs of injury, all the time talking to your pet in order to give them re-assurance and above all to keep them calm.

 

Things to look out for:

 

 Changes in your pets behaviour

 Aggression

 Whimpering and/or Growling

 Hiding

 Restlessness

 Holding a Leg off the ground

 Rubbing a Body Part

 Excessive Grooming
