Ashford Paws - Our Services

At Ashford Paws our aim is to be friendly and flexible. We are fully insured with Protectivity, a specialist in animal insurance designed for dog walkers and pet sitting. This insurance covers all types of pets including farm animals. This allows us the flexibility to offer a variety of services.

We have undertaken a Diploma in Pet Sitting and Pet First Aid. By completing both courses we have increased our knowledge and we are delighted to say that we are now certified. We have also carried out a Basic Disclosure Check, originally CRB, for your piece of mind.

We offer a free, no-obligation consultation in the comfort of your own home. It allows us to meet you and your pets to find out more about you and how you like to look after them. During the consultation, we have a couple of questionnaires for you to complete to ensure we have all the relevant contacts, likes, dislikes, emergency/vet contacts and any other relevant information. We’ll also present you with a welcome pack upon signing up to our services.

  • Dog Walking Service

    We offer three types of walks; a solo walk, group walks and adventure walks. A solo walk is based on an individual walk for your dog, which is ideal for nervous pets or clients looking for the personal experience. The group walk is a great way for your dogs to socialise and have fun with up to 4 dogs (6 smaller dogs). The adventure walk is where we take your dog on a longer walk, for example in the summer we might visit the beach, or possibly exploring further across country. This is subject to availability.

    As part of the service we will come to your home and collect your dog and take them on an enjoyable walk. We aim to make this varied by visiting a variety of locations locally. Once we return the dog we will towel dry them and, if required, feed them.

    All dogs are kept on the leads initially until such time that the pet, owner and Ashford Paws are happy and confident on the recall. We generally will use our own leads when walking dogs.

  • Pet Pop-In Service

    We are both animal lovers and we will care for your pet as if you were there, so it will give you peace of mind while you are away. It allows your pet to stay in the comfort of their own home so that they can stay in familiar surroundings therefore feeling less stressed.

    Whether you just want your pet to have cuddles, a feed, medicating or toileting, we can help. We offer a wide range of services for any type of pet. This could mean popping in to feed your rabbit whilst you are on holiday, or bringing in your horse from the field if you’re stuck at work.

  • Puppy Pop-In Service

    Welcoming a new puppy into your family is so incredibly exciting but it comes with lots of responsibilities and, for many of us, we lead such busy lives. That’s where we come in. If you’re at work, can’t get home or out for the day, Ashford Paws can visit your home and take care of your new puppy.

    We provide an essential service when you can’t be there from playing and interaction, to feeding, cleaning and short walks. This service can be tailored to your individual requirements too, so if you need more, please do ask.

  • VIP at Your Wedding

    Pets play an important role in our lives and your wedding day should be no different. Ashford Paws now offers a VIP At Your Wedding Service (Very Important Pets at your Weddings).

    This new service is flexible and we can adapt it to suit your individual needs. Prices start from just £200. Get in touch for a free consultation in the comfort of your home and we’ll even do a wedding venue pre-visit to make sure we know the location and timings.

  • Additional Services

    We also offer a pet taxi service, so if you need to visit your local vet or the dog groomer, this might be perfect for you. We provide a safe transportation service as your pet safety is paramount. This is subject to availability and advance booking is advisable.

    Another important service we offer is assisting in emergency care in case you are delayed. This could be when you are stuck at work or maybe your flight is delayed unexpectedly and you need your dog feed or let out.
