How Many Dogs Can You Board?

We can offer daycare and depending on how many boarders we have, we would be happy to take on separate dogs during the day. Please call for Daycare 
 
Can You Board My Puppy?
 
We can only board puppies over the age of 6 months due to our licensing laws but we can look after younger puppies in your own home
 
Do My Dog’s Need To Be Spayed/Neutered?

My Dog Is Not Always Sociable, Is This Ok?
 
We cannot accept any dog that is anti-social, displays excessive long periods of barking or does not understand basic commands.
Nor can we take the risk of any aggression towards adults, children or animals. The need to control any situation is helped if your dog has had some form of training or has the ability to follow and act upon basic commands.
If we find that your dog shows any signs of behavioural problems during their stay, that have not been disclosed to ourselves we are obliged to either keep him/her separated until your return or be removed from our home.
We will first contact your friend or family member provided on the booking form. If this fails then we will need to seek the advice of the dog warden and that may mean taking them to local kennels.
Any fee’s incurred by the kennels will be charged to yourself and our boarding fee’s will not be refunded.
So please be completely honest with us about your dogs personality from the start.
We can offer our pet sitting service for dogs that do not get on with other dogs

What Happens If My Dog Is Unwell Whilst Boarding?

Let your vet know that we will be taking them to their appointment and any vet fee’s will be invoiced to your address.
If going to the groomer, please leave me the correct money to pay them for the service unless of course you have made a prior payment arrangement.

Our Mission Statement...
Paws 4 A Break is a full-care dog walking, dog boarding service. We started in 2015 with a single dream in mind – to supply a pet care service where people could be sure that their dogs would be taken care of with the utmost love, patience, companionship and safety. The following year we added cats and small pets to our services and with the addition of a suitable adapted vehicle then added Pet taxi. Taking into consideration the number of dogs and the immense increase of new pet care services all over the UK, the care of any animal can go from being really good to really bad. For us there is only one option, excellence! Dogs are not just dogs. They are an integral part of our lives and our family. Just like our children. No matter how many dogs we care for, whether for thirty minutes or thirty days, we are totally committed to maintaining our specific style of care with every single animal we touch. That is our absolute promise! Paws 4 A Breaks commitment is to provide the healthiest, most nurturing environment for your family member by giving them the same loyalty, dedication, trust, integrity, love, and care that we would show our own pets if we had any, while contributing to the community and promoting animal rights and awareness.
