Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

Chief Cat Feeder

And Under Dog

Patrick Markham

I have always owed various pets and really do love all animals. Kate calls me "Pat Dolittle" I met my now wife in 2004, I was her dog walker! In early 2016 we had the opportunity to create one of my life ambitions.........Full Time Pet Services. We have known Kate through our dogs for many years, we got talking of our dreams for life and before we knew it we created The Crate Escape.

Kate Ashley

I grew up caring for small animals and since moving to Bourne in 1999 have had cats and dogs as pets. Owning a dog has changed my perspective of life and I thoroughly enjoy the freedom of walking in the fields and woods in the surrounding area. Meeting Sophie and Pat (through our dogs!) presented an opportunity to expand my enjoyment of caring for animals. Since starting The Crate Escape I have completed a Canine First Aid course and an introduction course to pet care.

Why Us?

We provide a bespoke service for you and your pets needs. We have based this on how we would like our own pets treated and centre our care around your home environment. We arrange visits for cats and small animals while you are away and dogs are walked from your home on familiar routes. We also provide buddy walks, if you need an extra pair of hands for multiple dogs, or playtime in the garden for dogs with different needs.
