We provide doggy day care within our home for a maximum of 5 dogs. We offer a variety of options for you and your dog/s to hopefully give you plenty of choice for what you require.
The dogs have an opportunity to play, socialise, get some well needed and well deserved human interaction and ensure they are mentally and physically stimulated throughout their day. For puppies, we also encourage training skills, from the basic 'sit' 'paw' etc to making them wait for meals, fetching and leaving when playing and promote those all important social skills with gentle boundaries. We also ensure they have time separate from us and others, within the same space, just to help with separation anxiety and stress.
Weekend Doggy Day Care is available upon request between the hours of 10:00 and 18:00, we ask that you book a minimum of 3 hours and a week in advance if possible.

Home dog boarding is a service we offer exclusively to our long term doggy day care clients. It can be anything from a weekend stay, Friday to Sunday or Friday to Monday, right up to 3 or 4 weeks at a time.
Please be aware that we do NOT accept any dogs for boarding, unless they have attended a minimum of 6 regular day care sessions and require our services on an ongoing basis, and 1 overnight stay before boarding is confirmed. We have had instances where clients have used us for day care to complete their required sessions, in order to board their dog for a week's boarding and then not been in contact with us again, which is sadly not what we are offering. Boarding is offered as a luxury option for regular clients, that have been with Paws for some time, so they are assured their dog is staying somewhere they know and are familiar with, whilst their owners are away. If a client uses our doggy day care service purely to board their dog and then not use us regularly afterwards, please be assured, their dog will not be offered the option of boarding again in the future. This is because we could go months without seeing the dog and as we have learned, the stress and uncertainty is too much for them and it is unfair on them and us and abuses our exclusive offer.
We do provide longer term boarding in special circumstances, with an affordable payment plan, just contact us directly for more information.
£26 - £32 depending on breed, all Puppies charged at £30.00 regardless of breed. Additional Pets from same household are £24.00-£30.00 depending on breed.
This service is mainly offered for new doggy day care clients, that potentially need to board with us at some point in the future. It is an excellent way to see how they cope, boarding away from home.
We also find this service is used a lot at weekends, if availability, to help couples have a night out or attend a family event all together, without worrying about leaving their dog for too long.
It is from 18:00-10:00, which seems to work well for owners and their needs, although we have been known to adapt the timing by an hour either side to accommodate a special occasion.
We also offer a special 'key worker' discount on this option.
Again, we also offer home visits to the regular dogs that we cannot accommodate in our doggy day care service.
We offer two options, first is to pop in for 15 minutes, which will give them an opportunity to use the garden for toileting and then freshen up their water, feed them if required and ensure they get some human interaction through the day.
Our second option is a 30-minute visit, which offers the same, however, we will try and walk the dog too - weather permitting.
15 min Home Visit £9.00
30 min Home Visit £12.00
It is so important for dogs to have close bonds and friendships outside the home, away from their families, to ensure they have confidence and feel secure. It allows them freedom to explore new surroundings and make exciting new discoveries and all within a safe environment and with their doggy friends!
