Neil and Amanda Anderson have been in the Middle East since 1992, having lived in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Dubai and now Ras al Khaimah.

Homely Petz was formed in Dubai when Amanda started pet sitting as a side venture whilst working as a Veterinary Practice Manager at the Veterinary Hospital in Dubai.  The demand was high and over time various other services were added.  Neil joined a couple of years later when he gave up the corporate world to go back into Dog Training and handling; before his corporate career, he was in the British Military as a dog trainer.  After 11 years in Dubai, they decided to move to RAK to the countryside to expand and enjoy a slower pace of life and encourage those around them to enjoy their pets and what the UAE has to offer, including the estate they now live and work on.  Amanda has since been Certified as a British-qualified Small Pet  Hydrotherapist (ABC Awards Diploma Level 3).  


Their team has grown to include their son, Scott who is a home-based dog trainer.  A great team of dog handlers/kennel hands including Athul from Sri Lanka, Temptation and Mark from Zimbabwe, and Kirsty (their amazing Administrative Coordinator) to keep everyone in check

and Ilfan the trusty Gardener.


At the end of 2019, they started RAK Glamping also on-site where dog owners are actively encouraged to bring their dogs along to enjoy dog-friendly holidays, short breaks and

Dog Training Retreats.

Homely Petz is literally home from home for all our clients be they 4-legged or 2 legged.


We are in a unique position in that we have over 9 acres to play with on Al Dahaisa Stables.  Our Kennels are in one corner with two huge outside play areas, training rooms and over 60 kennels.   Also on site is our Dog Friendly Glampsite, RAK Glamping for dog friendly vacays and short breaks.  Most of our staff including Neil and Amanda live on site and are available around the clock to serve our clients.
