About Us 1

Home Alone Pets

Home Alone Pets is an owner-operated business offering a truly personalised service.  Our aim is to improve the quality of life of both pets and pet owners.  Animal welfare is hugely important to us, and sadly we have seen first hand the damage that lack of exercise and stimulation can have on family pets.  We have also felt the strain of being unable to spend as much time with our pets as we would like, but we’ve been fortunate enough to have also experienced the benefit and peace of mind that professional help can bring.  If you need support in caring for your pet, please contact us and we will help ensure that you always come home to a happy pet!



Home Alone Pets is owned and operated by Fintan Lawton.  With a background in outdoor adventure sports and retail management, Fintan decided to set up Home Alone Pets to combine his love of animals with his strong customer service ethos.  He has a natural affinity with animals and understands both the demands of our furry friends and the importance of a reliable, trustworthy service for our clients.  He is also happy to be outdoors in all weathers, so if you don’t fancy being out during the cold winter evenings, look no further!  Fintan has particular experience with large breeds and reactive dogs and is comfortable handling both in public areas.  He also has experience of dealing with elderly dogs and dogs in rehabilitation from illness, and will tailor our services to suit the needs of each individual dog.  You can contact Fintan at fintan@homealonepets.ie or on 087 6799358.

Carol & Tonto


Carol is married to Fintan and when she’s not caught up with her day job, she is actively involved with Home Alone Pets.  Carol has been a dog owner for more decades that she cares to admit to, and began training dogs at a young age.  She spent many happy years at obedience and agility training classes with her own dog before deciding to volunteer at the DSPCA animal shelter in Rathfarnham in 2009.  While volunteering there, Carol became involved with the KingofPaws Dog Training team at the DSPCA, where she honed her dog training skills and became a Head Trainer.  You can contact Carol at carol@homealonepets.ie.
