Testimonials

Microchipping ~ Nicola Dunton 

Would just like to say Thank you again for such a great service. Having Buster microchipped with you was definitely better then taking him to the vets. Was lovely to see him so relaxed with you and still happy to play after!! Would definitely recommend this company for anything pet related!!

Pet visits ~ Debi Osullivan  

Words seem a rather inadequate way to say Thank You to Luke for the exemplary care he took of our dog, Paddy during our holiday. Luke not only took Paddy for his twice daily walks but also took responsibility for arranging and taking him to the vet when he was unwell. Thus we could continue to relax and enjoy ourselves knowing Paddy was in safe hands. Luke also took time to keep us up to date with text messages and photographs. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found Luke and are continuing to enjoy our relationship with Your Paws Services.

Dog Walking ~ Nancy Carr 

Thanks to Luke'es gentle and friendly approach, Dexter is getting more confident each time he goes out on a walk with his new friends, Dylan and Jack (and Luke, of course).

Dog Walking ~ Kim Langley 

A big THANK YOU to Luke and Paws Pet Service for walking Harley and DeFor while we were away. I loved the knowledge I had no worries. I absolutely enjoyed seeing the pictures and videos of their time with Luke, the personal touch. He not only complimented the dog sitter but also gave me the confidence and he made my dogs happy and tired. I will be using their services in the future. Anyone who is thinking about using them, I highly recommend them. Message from Harley and DeFor 'we will be seeing you soon'.

Puppy Walk ~ Julia Mason 

Luke has been walking my one year old german shepherd puppy for the last couple of months during which time she has been rehabilitating post surgery. My pup Nala is always very excited to see Luke and behaves very well for him. Since Luke has been walking her regularly she hardly pulls on the lead. I thoroughly recommend Luke who clearly loves animals and the fact that he has previously worked/trained with the RSPCA rescuing and caring for animals fills me with much confidence as my large pup can be a handful!

Dog Walking

 

All dogs GPS tracked

At Your Paws we are aware many people have busy working lives, resulting in their pets being left at home alone. This period of time alone can result in many behavioural issues and increase the stress levels of the dog. Many of the behaviours associated with naughty dogs are actually the result of a dog being under exercised as well as the lack of stimulation through interaction. Many pet owners will be surprised in the behavioural changes within their dog once they are regularly exercised.

Here at Your Paws we love to walk your loved ones, in fact we love it so much we have made it our job to do so. We endeavour to make their days stress free so that your evenings are the same. Please feel free to ring the Your Paws office to discuss tailoring a service for you and your dog.

Group Dog Walking (1 hour)

£11.50 + £7.00 per additional dog

Solo Dog Walking (30 minutes)

£11.00 + £2.50 per additional dog

Solo Dog Walking (1 hour)

£16.00 + £5.00 per additional dog

MicroChipping

 

Microchipping is something that we at Your Paws highly advise all pet owners to have done. A microchip is a small implant about the same size as a large grain of rice, that sits under the animals skin between the shoulder blades. Each chip works as a barcode specific to each animal, this barcode is held on a secure national database with the owners contact details. If you were ever to lose your loved one you have a much higher chance of being reunited with them if they have a chip. Vets, councils and welfare organisations will also scan lost pets to try and reunite them with their owners.

Your Paws offers to send a trained implanter to your home at a convenient time, to microchip your pet in the comfort of their own home. This reduces the stress on the animal and makes the process a lot faster then going to your local vet. Once your loved one has been chipped the Your Paws office will send off your details to the national database where they will be held on record, incase the animal was to ever stray or be stolen.

Your Paws Pet Services would like to inform all current and prospective pet owners that by 2016, it will be a legal requirement that all dogs are microchipped.

If you would like to secure your pets future please contact the Your Paws office.

Microchipping

£20.00 per pet

Puppy Visits

 

Here at Your Paws we are well aware how much time a puppy needs to become well trained, happy and healthy. In the early years of a dogs life it's vital they become accustomed to as many new environments, sounds and smells as possible. This is why at Your Paws we offer puppy visits, we will come to your home on a regular basis to feed, water and play whilst also setting out on small walks (when fully vaccinated) around your area.

The puppy visits are designed to make toilet training easier whilst providing your loved one with the company they need. If you would like to book in a puppy visit please call the Your Paws office to discuss your requirements.

Puppy Visit (30 minutes)

£11.00 + £2.50 per additional dog

Puppy Visit (1 hour)

£16.00 + £5.00 per additional dog

Pet Transport

 

Here at Your Paws Pet Services we operate an animal ambulance / pet taxi service for your pet. The ambulance is air conditioned and fitted out to transport your fluffy companion safely, and with minimal stress. Whether it's to a vets, boarding facility or even moving them to their new home Your Paws is here to help. Please note that if your pet is injured and showing signs of aggression, all Your Paws representatives are trained to deal with these situations so don't hesitate to call our office. Due to our public liability insurance only covering animals, we are unable to carry passengers in the ambulance.
