Ros, her family and their menagerie welcome you to Paw Pals Reading East, providing dog walking, pet sitting and boarding services in the Woodley, Earley and surrounding area of East Reading.

Ros has spent most of her life in the Woodley and Earley area of Reading. After being a mum, then a childminder/supervisor in a local preschool, Ros worked for over 13 years for the NHS Blood and Transplant department before being made redundant, giving her the opportunity she needed to follow her dream of working with animals and running her own business – Paw Pals Reading East was born!

Paw Pals Reading East is very much a family run business. Husband Neil is a fulltime civil servant and driving instructor, who plans to get involved as much as possible in the evenings and weekends. Daughter Kirsten has a wealth of equine knowledge, having studied Horse Management at Berkshire College of Agriculture and Horse Behaviour & Nutrition at Writtle College in Chelmsford. She also has extensive experience of caring for all types of other pets and is trained in dog & cat nutrition.

With such a passion for animals, pets have always played a huge part in family life – dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, fish, hamsters and even stick insects have been owned in the past! Their current brood include Bailey the Labra-doodle, moggies Susie and Binks, Neville and Roco the guinea pigs and Bear the hamster.

Pet Home Sitting and Dog Walking Services

Ros is keen to build on her knowledge of pet care. She and her family have completed a Pet First Aid Course and Ros is currently studying towards her Pet Home Sitting and Dog Walking qualification, accredited by the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training. She is also interested in Animal Behaviour and has recently enrolled at the Berkshire College of Agriculture to study this further.

Professional Pet Sitting

Ros is police checked, fully insured to look after your pets and home and is a member of the Pet Industry Federation, a trade association promoting excellence across the UK Pet Industry. Ros is also licensed and inspected annually by the local authority, so she can provide a boarding service for your pets in her own home. So you can rest assured, your pets are in safe hands.


“Archie really loves his walks with Ros and I am happy that he is in safe hands. She is very reliable and I would recommend Ros to anyone.”
