A bespoke service was created which allowed pet owners to go away on holiday or out to work, and relax, knowing their home is safe and their pet cared for in accordance with their exact wishes.
Due to the overwhelming success of the first Paw Pals branch the opportunity to franchise the business nationally was created.
With branches across the UK, Paw Pals is now run by Managing Director Susanne Cooke, who originally started out a Paw Pal herself. She managed her successful Salisbury branch for 4 years before selling on to the current owner.
Now, with help from her dog Moe, Susanne runs the Paw Pals Franchise operation across the UK.
Only the most genuine, caring and professional people join the Paw Pals team and our franchise recruitment process is extremely thorough.
All of our dog walkers and pet sitters are police checked, fully insured and are pet first aid trained. Our Paw Pals are also registered with the Pet Industry Federation, a trade association promoting excellence across the pet care industry in the UK. They also undertake a professional Pet Sitting qualification, accredited by the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training.
In addition to this, our branches offering a doggy home boarding service are also officially licensed by their local authority. This includes an annual inspection as well as strict regulations that we adhere to, so you can have peace of mind that your pets are in the safest hands possible.
Paw Pals offers an array of services to suit the needs of both you and your pet, making your time apart from them as happy and stress-free as possible.
"Dylan the Bassett hound has been with Paw Pals since he first came home as a little pup and is now almost 4 years old. Paw Pals are like his second family and he loves going for his walks, I just wish he would be as excited when I take the lazy boy out!
Could not recommend Paw Pals more highly, we would be lost without them. Thanks for everything, you're amazing!"
Emma Edson - Dylan (Bassett Hound)
"You have been an absolute God send. Walking our 2 precious boxer dogs whilst we are at work has been a huge help and weight off our minds. We know they are in safe hands with you and your reliability and caring attitude towards Roxi and Vinnie is most comforting.
The word 'Caroline' gets the same responce as 'sausages' in our household; chaos and excitement! Very cute!"
Juliette & Adi - Roxy & Vinnie (Boxers)
"Just to say thanks for looking after the dogs. It made a great day even better knowing that the dogs were left with somebody who not only knew how to look after them, but also somebody who cared. From the moment you arrived, we could see you were at ease and so were the dogs. This made our day at the wedding complete, not having to worry about the dogs."
Mike Keen - Dug, Alfie, Ruby, Inca & Indie (Doberman, Jack x Dachs, pointer, Greyhound, GDS)
