West Oxon main

Welcome to Paw Pals West Oxfordshire!

Caroline & Ant welcome you to Paw Pals West Oxon in Witney, with a little help from their beloved Labrador Meg!

Caroline has a passion for animals going back to an early age and has, over the years, owned tropical fish, gerbils, hamsters, goldfish, numerous dogs and several cats, including fostering cats for an animal sanctuary. Ant had a goldfish. . . but loves animals just as much!

Caroline comes to Paw Pals having spent the last 25 years sitting behind a desk, despite having had some great jobs including working for the Williams Formula One racing team! She now relishes the chance to pursue a career combining caring for animals with making a success of her own business in the great outdoors. Ant gave up his job as a brewer and joined the business full time after Caroline had been running it for a little over a year. Due to her success she needed another pair of hands and more importantly feet!

Caroline and Ant are keen to build on her knowledge of pet care. They have both completed a Pet First Aid Course and Caroline has obtained her Pet Home Sitting & Dog Walking qualification with an 'Excellent pass with Honours', accredited by The Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training.

Caroline and Ant are both police-checked, fully insured to look after your pets and home, and members of The Pet Care Trust. 

Caroline has recently started volunteering for a truly amazing charity; Medical Detection Dogs. The charity funds the training of dogs to help people with things like severe diabetes (they can detect when a person's blood sugar level drops and alert them) and narcolepsy, they are also trained to identify the odour of some forms of cancer - incredible.

What our Clients say


"Caroline and Ant have been regularly walking our Labrador Stella for over two years now. They have always provided an extremely professional and friendly service and we have come to really rely on their help in our busy day to day lives, with full time jobs and a toddler to take care of as well! They have always been 100% trustworthy, and we happily trust them with our front door key. They are extremely reliable and have never let us down yet – they’ve walked Stella whatever the weather (pouring rain, heatwaves, and snow!) and she is always relaxed and well exercised when we return home from work.
We’ve even used their services when we’ve been too ill to get out of bed, and they have quietly let themselves in and taken Stella out. The sound of her tail wagging downstairs was confirmation of how much she enjoys her time with them! Extra touches like the notes they leave after each walk are always appreciated, and their clear love of animals means they are the perfect people to entrust with our beloved pet!"
