What We Do & Aim To Do


How We Began

Having loved and worked with animals all her life, Victoria saw an expanding need for mobile pet care services and set up Animal Magic Family in the Clitheroe area in 2015.  She started with dog walking and home visits - then went on to offer day care for dogs as it proved her most popular service.  Offering something different from other day care providers - that the dogs in her care spend a lot of time outdoors - on walks and in a secure area - a much happier environment than being indoors all day!  As custom grew she realised a more practical base would be appropriate - and found the perfect location nestled in the picturesque Yorkshire hills in 2019. 

Since taking on the amazing new "Doggy Dreamland" venue last June, Animal Magic Family now offers a huge range of services between Blackburn and Bradford!  Doggy Day Play, Doggy Stay Over and Doggycise are all run from our base in Oakworth - but our home visit, pet sitting and doggy taxi services are available within a 25 mile radius.

Animal Magic Family are always looking for both casual employees (with experience) and business minded animal mad people to start their own franchise branches of AMF in all area's.  Just get in touch for more information.
