Welcome to Animals at Home - Exmoor and Quantocks Ltd! (Established 2005).


Iain and Kathy live on the edge of Exmoor with their young son; they also share their home with saluki cross Duke, Evie the jack russel and working border collie Bob. 

They live on a mini-farm and manage a very successful flock of commercial mule sheep and pedigree dorsets, and their son has a few herdwicks.Iain started the company in 2005 after careers in the military and the civilian police services. 

He is the day to day animal carer and has studied and is certified in canine anatomy, physiology and clinical health, as well as animal emergency medical care, control and handling. He is also qualified in the DEFRA competencies in animal welfare during transport.

He has studied animal behaviour to an advanced level and is vastly experienced in caring for all domestic pets plus ponies, horses and hobby animals (sheep, goats, poultry, alpacas etc).

 His public service experience, efficient military outlook and focus, and his love of animals, all combine to offer the best service possible for you and your animals.

Kathy has had animals all her life with a background in commercial livestock, having trained at Seale-Hayne Agricultural College; later working in heritage farming with rare breed sheep and heavy horses.Kathy has vast experience with livestock, farming and animal husbandry. She has previously owned and ran working dogs while shepherding.

 Kathy is lucky enough to work from home which allows guest dogs to stay.Iain and Kathy find that sharing their home with rescued dogs is challenging but extremely rewarding: this has given opportunities to learn new techniques over the years, establishing trust and security in dogs.

 Duke, Bob and Evie are great companions to many regular guest dogs and are happy to give up their beds and share walks with visitors.Iain and Kathy's West Somerset home has large grounds and a secure two acre field along with 25 further acres of fenced grassland and is surrounded by wooded hills; a great area for walking dogs. It is an ideal home and setting to host care for your dogs.

They can also offer carefully selected homes for dog boarding in Taunton and West Somerset; the Hosts being fully assessed, trained and insured.

They provide the complete range of animal care services including dog walking, cat care, equine and smallholding care. 

The company operates DEFRA authorised animal ambulances / pet transport vehicles and holds a Type 2 Welfare in Transit animal transport license. Iain also holds a DEFRA Certificate of Competence in transporting and handling of domestic species of cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, domestic equidae and poultry.

They have a small team working with them which allows the pet care services to extend in to West Somerset and Taunton.Iain is also the training and support manager for Animals at Home Ltd; offering his experience in the public and private sector training and leadership roles, and his expertise in animal care to his Animals at Home colleagues throughout the UK.

Both Iain and Kathy look forward to meeting you and offering a second to none service to you and your pets.
