Unlike some other dog walkers and pet sitters, Happy Paws is open seven days a week and we aim to be as competitively priced as possible, charging no additional premium for weekend dog walks, where available, or cat and small animal visits. You can find our rates dog walking and pet sitting here.

At Happy Paws, we aim to offer a personal and flexible service as we understand that life sometimes means that you can’t always be at home for your pets. Our range of dog walking and pet sitting services ensures that your pets are given the same exercise, love and attention that you would give them yourself. As life-long pet owners we know that every pet has their own special requirements, so we are happy to arrange an initial free of charge consultation to get to know both you and your pet. Please don’t hesitate to contact Happy Paws to arrange this free service.

Beagles on a fun dog walk

We are currently the proud and happy owners of our 12-year old rescue cat Starsky, and two dogs, our 8-year old Labrador, Murphy, and a our 7-year old Shih Tzu, Archie. Murphy had a quiet life on the farm where he was born but he’s really developed his social skills and benefitted from joining in our group socialisation walks. Archie joins us too. He loves the fun and frolics we have and thinks he’s a Labrador too!

We’ve always been fans of the great outdoors, so whatever the north-east weather throws at us you can rest assured your dog will not only have the exercise they need but plenty of fun along the way too.

For your additional peace of mind, Happy Paws is fully insured for all dog walking and pet sitting services including key cover, DBS (formerly CRB) checked and certified in pet first aid and CPR.
