Pet Care Services in Bristol

Welcome to Paw Pals Bristol South West!

Joanna and Deefer Dog welcome you to Paw Pals Bristol South West.

Joanna grew up surrounded by a number of household pets, including dogs, cats, hamsters and guinea pigs. She has always had a natural love for our four-legged, furry friends, and is the proud owner of Deefer, her gorgeous chocolate labrador.

Paw Pals Bristol officially launched in June 2012 and since then Joanna has not looked back. She thoroughly enjoys the variety that each day brings, and is proud of the professional and friendly service that she provides, along with the special bonds created with each of the pets she is lucky enough to care for. For Joanna, there is nothing better than seeing the excitement in the animals when she visits, knowing they are well looked after in her care.

As well as Deefer keeping her fit, Joanna enjoys playing netball competively, and loves finishing off a hard day of pet care with a hot bubble bath and her kindle.

Joanna is keen to build on her knowledge of pet care. She is trained in Pet First Aid and has achieved a Pet Home Sitting & Dog Walking qualification, accredited by The Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training.

Joanna can’t wait to make your dog part of the family by having them stay with her whilst you go away. She is fully insured and licensed for dog and small animal boarding in her home and is annually inspected by the local council.

If Joanna has the pleasure of looking after your pets in your home, she is both police-checked and fully insured to do so. She is also a full member of The Pet Industry Federation, a membership body for professional, pet specialist businesses.

What our Clients say

"Since getting Tinker, our life has very much revolved around her: work, social events and even holidays. After cancelling what felt like the hundredth day out, dinner, work trip etc because we couldn't leave Tinker on her own we decided there must be a better way. After doing a search on the internet we came across Paw Pals, Joanna was prompt to respond and after a very quick and painless initial visit we were good to go. Joanna was extremely good with Tinker and put up with her crazy whirlwind ways.
Since finding Paw Pals we have used Joanna for dog walking, pet sitting at our house and she has had Tinker to board at her house. Deefer is incredibly friendly too and has proved to be great company for Tinker. I would thoroughly recommend Joanna and Paw Pals to anyone looking for reliable, competent and friendly pet sitting/walking services."
