nottingham dog walking, cat sitting & general pet care services!

Nicky Nettleton from Mapperley offers dog walking, cat sitting and general pet care services in Nottingham (with assistance from Alf, her Goldendoodle and Lara the cat!).

Her passion for animals began over 40 years ago when she worked at Longleat Safari Park, as an animal warden. Taking care of giraffes, zebras and camels equipped Nicky with the necessary skills to work with pets of all shapes and sizes!

She left her dream job at Longleat to pursue a career in teaching and spent 18 years teaching primary school children. However, her love for animals never left her and she has always been surrounded by pets including stick insects, gerbils, hamsters, cats and dogs. In 2008 Nicky responded to an advert for a Paw Pals franchise and finally returned to her true passion – animals!

Professional & Reliable Dog Care Nottingham

Nicky is adept at handling dogs and she and Alf have worked their way through the obedience classes at the Nottingham Dog Training Club. So it is safe to say if you are looking for friendly dog walkers in Nottingham, you are in the right place! With her small team she can provide dog walking services that meet yours and your dog’s requirements, so that your dog can enjoy their walk. 

Qualified Pet Sitting in Nottingham

CRB checked and fully insured, Nicky is a member of the Pet Industry Federation and has a formal pet sitting qualification from COAPE – the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology, covering pet first aid, nutrition, behaviour and pet care legislation.

All certificates will be shown during the customer consultation. As a result, Nicky and her team can offer dog walking and cat sitting services in Nottingham, providing high quality pet care to put your mind at ease if you need to leave your pet at home. 


“Thank you for taking such good care of Lucia while we were away. We were greeted with a very chilled out, content, cuddly, little girl. She has obviously been very settled in your care.

“Yet again Paw Pals have made our holiday time that little bit more stress free. It really is lovely to know our pets get such good care while we are away. Thank you.”

Carly & Terry – TED

There is nothing you can do to improve your service. You communicate effectively with us and always have Ted’s best interests at heart. We cannot thank Nat enough for the love and care he gives to Ted on their walks. He is such a lovely person, it’s lovely to know that Ted is being looked after by him. We never have any concerns. Ted always has the best time.

Thank you so much.


Hi Nicky. I feel extremely happy with the dog care you provide. I really love that I receive photos as I’ve never had this before and understand it can be hard with 3 dogs and them being so different. The daily feedback is lovely and very positive, giving a personal touch. The dog walkers have shown they have taken time to get to know Molly, Lily and Bruce, as well as including Lily in all their activities. I don’t feel any improvement is necessary.

I’m really happy with the care and go to work happy they will be looked after and look forward to hearing what they’ve been doing.


Paw Pals always go above and beyond with the service they provide. It’s great to find a company that actually has your pets’ best interest and welfare at heart.

Highly recommend the services of Nicky and her team!

Vikkie & Andy – LOUIS & TOMMY

We have always been extremely happy with the service from Paw Pals. The boys love their walks with Nat. Wouldn’t let anyone else look after them both.

Thank you.

Rosie & Jody – VINNIE

No improvements to pass on. We think that the service is great! We love how accommodating Paw Pals are to ours and Vinnie’s circumstances. We love that each dog walker updates us every day with what Vinnie gets up to.

It really feels like everyone cares about Vinnie which puts our mind at ease so much. Thank you

Lucy – ZERO

Really happy with your service. The flexibility you offer is great for us. I love receiving feedback about Zero’s walks including the videos.

When I mentioned to Nat some issues we have been having re recall and pulling on lead, he was happy to continue what we have been doing and gave feedback on how it was going.


Great Service! Paw Pals always go above and beyond with the service they provide. It’s great to find a company that actually has your pets’ best interest and welfare at heart.

Would highly recommend the services of Nicky and her team!
