the Paw Pals story....
Paw Pals began as a family run pet sitting business in 2005, established
to offer an innovative alternative to dog kennels and cattery,
or having to rely on neighbours or family for day to day and holiday pet care.
a bespoke pet care service
Pet care is tailored to the precise needs of pet and owner while at work or on holiday. Paw Pals clients know their pet is 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 run by Managing Director Brian Ainge, who originally started out as a Paw Pal branch owner and still runs Paw Pals East Surrey.
Only the most genuine, caring and professional people join the Paw Pals team and our franchise recruitment process is extremely thorough.
We are proud members of:

fully trained pet-sitting team
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.
nine reasons to choose Paw Pals
we do not ‘pack’ walk dogs in large groups.....
All our doggy clients receive our undivided
attention and care for the duration of
their time with us. Socialisation walkies can
be organised by request if you would like
your dog to have a buddy.
experienced pet care......
Paw Pals was first established in 2005 and has ever since been providing premium care to pets of all shapes and sizes! We’re big enough to cope, small enough to care.
personalised pet care......
Paw Pals will follow precisely your pet/s
routine; they can be fed at their usual time,
walked to their usual place and sleep in their
usual comfortable bed.
peace of mind.....
We are fully insured, police-checked,
pet first aid trained and members of
the Pet Industry Federation.
free ‘meet and greet’ consultations......
It is vital that the pet, owner and the pet
sitter all meet prior to the booking to ensure
the service is right for everyone and we place
you under no obligation.
Enjoy your time away with the reassurance
of regular updates on your pets – we can
text, email, send photos or even Facebook
you updates to let you know everything is fine.
all pets included....
Paw Pals can look after all different kinds of
pets you may have, so you won’t need to
find temporary homes for your small pets,
such as fish, rabbits and birds. Nobody
gets left out!
Whether you need a daily dog walk or only use
us one day a year, we value all of our clients
and can cater for all kinds of requests.
Having overnight stays or pet care visits in
your own home can provide an ideal burglar deterrent; we can close/open curtains, switch
on/off lights, put bins out etc. to make your
home look ‘occupied’ whilst you’re away.
