"Auntie Joy" has been an absolute godsend in helping us bring up our cockerpoo Max.. from the very first meeting Joy was informative and positive about us bringing home a puppy. Joy has looked after Max from 11 weeks to now at 7 months and is key to us getting through his "teenage tantrums"...! not sure we would cope without her
Joy at PadPaws was fantastic when sitting our Dalmation Beau, when we were let down by another company. She couldn't have been more helpful, she reassured us and when we had our initial consultation we were comforted by her efficiency, we organised Beau to stay at Joys for 5 nights whilst we were away, she sent regular pictures of the fun they were having when we returned Beau although happy to see us didn't want to leave. We will certainly be using the services again, more like a holiday for our family and for Beau,than just for us. Brilliant thank you Joy x
Can't recommend Joy enough. Cookie my gorgeous boy loves her any my baby Great Dane is waiting until she can go too. Joy is highly professional and excellent with my babies. If you are looking for a professional dog walker who goes the extra mile, don't look any further.
My name is Joy Robinson, PadPaws founder.
I started PadPaws from the love of all animals small, big, furry, fluffy and not so!!! And a need locally for a dog walking & pet sitting business to support and care for those much loved animals that give us so much affection, warmth, cuddles and above all unconditional love,with a vision of how a professional pet care service should be, giving me the opportunity of having not just a job but a lifestyle that I have craved for many years, working for over 26 years in the commercial sector and most recently the 3rd sector for a well known veterinary charity it’s allowed me to get off that work hamster wheel!!!!!
My family currently consists of Oliver and Oscar my two beautiful Birman cats. Peggy & Betty my two chickens, a tropical fish tank and of course not forgetting my Wonderful Husband Ian.
I’ve always been surrounded by animals this consisting of Dogs, Cats, Birds, Fish, Hamsters, Rabbits, always been surrounded by horses.

If you are lucky to have a new puppy, it is essential they are kept in a routine even when you are not there. Puppies cannot usually hold their bladder for longer than 3 hrs, so it is essential they have regular potty times to help with successful house training.
PadPaws can offer a solution to this. We will visit your home, toilet and play with your puppy, feed them if required and clean up any unwanted mess.
Puppies require a lot of love and attention. We can provide companionship and care visits, which can include indoor and outdoor playtime. We can build this up for you, as your puppy gets older we can introduce walking into their routine.
Routine and organisation are crucial at the start of a puppy’s life if they are to grow into confident, well socialised and happy family pets. It will also assist in the toilet training process and will build a strong and trusting bond with us, possibly in preparation for our dog walking services at a later stage.
Prices Start from
