“Carol looked after our beautiful dog Megan for 10 Days while we were away on holiday. The induction process and information gathering were excellent. We felt that Carol had all the information she would need to look after Megan and our home.

Megan took to Carol straight away. Carol clearly loves animals and they love her in return. Megan was walked, played with. groomed and loved as if she was Carol’s own dog. We returned to a tidy house, watered garden and most importantly a very happy dog. I would not hesitate to recommend Carol for dog walking or boarding, a fabulous service. Thank you Carol!”

Angela McKersie – Megan (labradoodle)


“A massive thank you to Paw-Pals Telford North (aka Aunty Carol) for looking after our little girl so fantastically while we were away on holiday. She has been so poorly over he last few months that it was reassuring to know I was leaving her in capable hands, particularly with all the meds she now has to have at all times of the day!

It was wonderful to receive daily pupdates via WhatsApp as it really set my mind at rest (well except for the fact I did start to worry she may not WANT to come home!) Thanks again Carol.

Lots of woofs from Betty Schnauzer and her mom and dad xxxx”.

“This is the first time our nearly 3 year old Cockerpoo Dog called Chester has stayed with anyone other than family. Carol and Helen looked after Chester for nearly 3 weeks whilst we were on holiday and I didn’t worry about him because I knew Carol would do a fantastic job with him. She didn’t let me down. To make it easier Carol was fab at sending us daily updates and pictures of Chester so it was great to see him enjoying his walks and cuddle times. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Carol and Helen for home boarding for your dog or any other care you may need for your animals. Carol truly has a passion for animals and treats them all as her own which is a rare quality nowadays. We look forward to seeing her again soon.”

Joanna Jones & Chester (Cockerpoo)


“ Bella and Bo write: We have stayed with Carol a few times now and have always enjoyed our time there. Unfortunately, the last time we stayed Bella was taken very ill. Luckily, this was spotted by Carol who got her to the emergency vet, and then her own vet, very quickly. Carol let our Mum and Dad know what was going on as they were away on holiday. The vets did everything they could and Carol (and Helen) gave Bella extra love and attention. It’s never nice to be ill but Carol and Helen really looked after Bella well until Mum and Dad came home. So, if you are ever looking for somewhere to stay while your parents are away you cannot go wrong with Carol and Helen. Thank you as always Carol!”

“Carol looked after our 7 cats when we were on holiday for a week. Two of them need regular medication and they all use the indoor litter trays (even though they have a cat-flap and can go outdoors !) and Carol managed both of these without any problems. Two of them are also quite elderly and need coaxing to eat enough, and Carol took the time to sit with them and make sure that they all ate enough at meal times. We returned home to 7 relaxed cats and a clean house. We can wholeheartedly recommend Carol and Paw-pals as pet-sitters if you are going away: it is cheaper than the cattery and less stressful for both the animals and their owners. Most importantly, the animals are looked after in their own homes where they are most comfortable.”

Kim Ryder – (7 Cats)


“I contacted Carol (PawPals North Telford) to walk my Springer Spaniel Bella, whilst she was staying at my parents house for a period over Xmas. She held a meeting at my parents house to meet both myself, my parents and Bella to ensure everyone was happy with the arrangements etc and we found her very professional but also extremely friendly.
I would have absolutely no hesitation is using her services again and in fact am about to book her for another holiday period coming up. Bella loved her and was excited every day to go on her walks. Carol posted photos on Facebook and e mail to assure us that Bella was ok which put our minds at rest immediately. My parents could not praise her manner and timeliness enough. I would recommend Carol for any of her services as she adores any animals and treats them as her own.”

Mrs Julie Nevitt and Bella (Springer Spaniel)


“Carol took our two golden doodles out for hour long walks at really short notice. They came back tired and really happy and were so excited to go out with Carol each time. I would not hesitate to recommend Carol, she is a delight and our dogs adored her.”

Maria Carroll – Oscar & Ruby (Golden doodles)


“”Carol has looked after Abbie four times this year. She does a fab job and we love the messages and photos she sends of our wee girl. Abbie adores her visits and we can enjoy our holidays knowing she’s in safe and caring hands.”

Christine Gavagan – Abbie (cat)


“Carol does a fabulous job as Paw-Pals Telford North, she is so friendly and professional and our beagle Lilly loves her! Nothing is too much trouble for Carol, she even goes the extra mile to drop me a text which means I don’t ever have to worry about Lilly whilst I’m at work. I would recommend Carol to anyone and we plan to stay with her for the foreseeable future!”

Helen Clarke – Lilly (beagle)


“Carol has been priceless in our transition from a pet-free family to a family with a lively puppy. She walks Finn whilst we’re at work and he’s boarded for a week and had a fabulous time, he sulked when we got him home! She’s always really flexible and goes above and beyond to make sure that you get a fantastic level of service and a happy pet! Thanks Carol :)”

Claire England – Finn (chocolate Labrador)


“I feel I must write to let you know how you have made my life so much easier. Prior to engaging you I had to use my lunch hour to walk Jack. Now I get some time to myself 2 days a week which has made a huge difference to me.

I can rely on you totally and Jack is enjoying a new friend to walk with rather than me! I like the fact you keep me informed after each walk so I don’t have to worry and that you are willing to step in to do evening feeds if I am out.I have recommended you to all my fellow dog friends and cannot thank you enough for you friendly, professional service.”

Christine McNiesh – Jack (black Labrador)


“During our holiday Carol would send me regular e-mail updates and photo’s of Max. Max actually had his 14th birthday with Carol and Carol followed my request for his birthday to the letter.  Max formed quite a bond with Ginnie, with the 2 of them running round the garden, playing like a couple of 4 year olds. Carol clearly loves animals and made Max very welcome. So much so, that when I went to collect him, he was initially reluctant to leave his comfy bed !! I have been so pleased with the service Carol provided that I have already booked Max in again for 2 weeks in October and for a week at New Year. I just know that he will be very well cared for and have a lovely time.”

Linda Ricketts – Max (Labrador)


“What a find Carol is! Reliable and caring for Archie, our beagle. He loves going for his walks with Carol and is so excited to see her (nothing to do with her pocketful of doggie treats I’m sure).

Such a relief to find somebody to trust in your house when you’re not there and know that she will turn up as promised”

Lisa Rushton – Archie (Beagle)


“Carol is excellent. I was very pleased with the service she gave to me and my dog. Jake my dog really loved Carol coming round to walk him.

She was professional and helpful, nothing was ever too much for her. Thank you for all your help and support”.

Johanna Trickett – Jake (Cairn Terrier)


“Thank you so much Carol, wonderful service!! So reassuring to have regular texts and updates from you and we can relax, knowing that our little fur balls are being well cared for.

We will sort out the invoice as soon as we get home and will definitely be in touch next time we are looking to go away!! Thanks again.”

Jo Holding – Jess, Charlie & Zukie (cats)


“Carol is an absolute gem, so glad I became aware of her service.

Professional and caring I would recommend her without hesitation.”

Tracy Norton – Bella (Spaniel)


“Carol was friendly, competent and reliable, we could relax being away knowing the cats and house were being well looked after!!

The texts to update you all was OK after each visit was also reassuring, thanks Carol.”

Jo Holding – Cats


“Using Paw-Pals for the first time this weekend. So far we have had a picture, an e-mail, or a text letting us know how our cat Lincoln is at every visit.

A brilliant service that provides peace of mind. Thank you Carol 🙂 “

Dawn Woolley – Lincoln Cat


“We have been lucky enough to have the services of Carol from Paw Pals to look after our 2 cocker spaniels and a grumpy cat at our home whilst we were on holiday. We were away for 3 weeks and had daily updates from Carol including photos and videos.

The video of our two spaniel pups talking to us whilst on holiday was a big hit! It was clear that our very active dogs were being treated to plenty of walks including trips to their favourite Attingham Park and Haughmond Hill. Not only were our pets well cared for but we knew that our home was also being looked after. It gave us peace of mind and enabled us to have a great holiday without worrying about either our pets and our home.

Carol was very professional, ensuring that everything was covered should there be any problems whilst we were away. She came prior to our holiday to take details regarding where fuse boxes were, stop cock for water, insurance details etc. It felt like every eventuality had been covered or considered.

Carol has also helped us on several occasions walking our dogs when we have been away for long periods during the day following family illness. At a time when we were under stress Carol helped ensure that we had one less responsibility to worry about.

Thank you Carol for all your help in the last 12 months and we have been very fortunate to have found you and PawPals.”
