Paw Pals Ashington

Welcome to Paw Pals Ashington!

Diane, husband Paul and their faithful rescue dog Jess welcome you to Paw Pals Ashington, providing dog walking, pet sitting and boarding services in the local area.

Diane has spent over 35 years working as a Pharmacy Technician for the NHS. Although a thoroughly enjoyable career, with her experience and passion for the animal world, she finally thought it was the right time to say goodbye to her well respected role and take on a new challenge - Paw Pals seemed to fit the bill perfectly!

Diane has extensive experience with pets of all shapes and sizes; small furries, cats, she has re-homed 2 rescue dogs from a local animal shelter and even adopted a previously mistreated horse through the RSPCA, one of her most challenging yet rewarding responsibilities of her life.

Paul, also with huge knowledge and experience with pets, currently works fulltime but helps Diane out when he can at weekends and evenings. This will continue until the exciting time that Paul will join Diane and work fulltime with her and the Paw Pals business.

Diane and Paul are keen to build their knowledge of pet care. They have both completed a Pet First Aid Course and Diane is currently studying towards her Pet Home Sitting and Dog Walking qualification, accredited by the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training. Both are police checked, fully insured to look after your pets and home and are members of the Pet Industry Federation. They are also planning to take on host families for their Dog Home Boarding service, who shall be licensed and are annually inspected by the local council.

What our Clients say

"I think Diane and Paul have already been doing this job all of their life and are now at a point in Diane's life to continue with the care of animals as her main job and I can't think of anyone better to do this."
