An amazing place for your beloved canine friends

Walkapaws is an amazing facility where your dogs are showered with love and attention from the second they set paw into the place! We refer to it as ‘the Dog Hotel’ as it really is a wonderful experience for our dogs and they come back completely exhausted from all the stimulation. Not like traditional kennels at all-no cages and sitting pining for owners. The dogs are free to roam and socialise with the other dogs all day long and then tucked into their own private ‘chalet’ in the evening. Couldn’t recommend this place more, complete peace of mind while you’re away.

Rubys stay at walkapaws

We left our 6 and a half month old Labrador puppy here while we went to spain for 8 nights, we were nervous about leaving her but received numerous photos of her having fun with new friends at walkapaws through WhatsApp , and a few videos . When we text with any worries or concerns we always got a reply and an update to reassure us every few days. When we picked her up she had a lovely pink bow round her collar to match her pink collar and Ruby name tag. Just outstanding . Thank you all so much for your love , care and attention of our Ruby ( pink collar) lol while we were on holidays. Would definitely recommend you pay for what you get and even at £20 a night it’s worth every single penny . You can’t put a price on the happiness of your fur baby . Amazing xxxx Katie & Jonathan

Peace of mind

I worried about leaving my 2 dogs in kennels for the first time and researched all local (and not so local) options. I was very impressed when I visited Walkapaws. I arrived a day early by mistake. The dog areas were spotless and comfortable. There were lots of dogs socialising happily together outside in a secure area, fully supervised. No anxious barking, quite an achievement most importantly the human team are genuine dog lovers and came across as professional and friendly. I left my dogs at Walkapaws knowing that they would be well cared for. Enjoyed seeing photos of them on Facebook while I was on hols. When I got back I found them healthy and happy. I would recommend Walkapaws - you get what you pay for.
