Built for

happy days and nights

We designed our accommodation for what we would want for our dogs, our kennels include:

  • Most of our kennels have 9.2 sq m. of interior kennel space -  4. 8 times the licencing standard

  • 9.3 sq m. of run space for most kennels

  • All have heated beds and rooms

  • All with comfortable vinyl floors.

We believe dogs should be out of the kennels as much as possible (depending on the dog) therefore:

  • Our exercise areas are large with equipment for enriching play

  • Undercover exercise area for bad weather

  • Segregated for dogs who prefer their own company.

About us


I would highly recommend Mind Your Paws. From our first visit we were offered a tour of the grounds which were fantastic, every single thing has been thought of to make it a luxury dog friendly 5* hotel! Debbie and Cooper kept contact throughout our time away with photos and videos of Teddy which was a nice touch. Teddy didn’t want to leave! We will definitely be coming back next time. Thanks again!

..Went for a look around today and I loved what I saw. They have designed everything with the dog in mind and feel dogs that stay here will have a cosy and relaxed stay due to the care they will receive and because of the design of the kennels. I look forward to watching this business grow from strength to strength

Below is a selection of comments from people whose dogs we home boarded whilst in the Middle East. Contact details supplied upon request.

We had no hesitations leaving Ben in Debbie and Cooper's care.  Both are highly experienced but importantly they both genuinely cared about Ben's welfare and happiness.  He truly enjoyed his staycation with them which ultimately was due to them understanding his individual quirks and tailoring their approach to him.

Debbie and Cooper looked after our Dog Roxy for two weeks. Our dog can be quite a handful with new people and new dogs until she gets to know them so we were quite apprehensive. We needn’t have worried – from the moment Roxy was in her care Debbie showed great skills building a strong relationship with our dog.


When we returned Roxy was clearly healthy, well fed, happy and exercised. Since then we have had private and group sessions with Debbie to assist with training and socializing and cannot recommend her services enough. She has a love of dogs that is apparent from the start and would always trust her to look after our dog.

Debbie and Cooper


We have always loved animals and owned many dogs and cats over the years. 

We ran a community animal boarding facility whilst working abroad, in our spare time, and provided home boarding for community members. This experience prompted us to start a boarding facility in the UK.

Both of us have gone back to school, gaining qualifications in kennel management (Ofqual Level 3) dog training, animal first aid, and more.


Our studies continue with Cooper who is over half way through a Kennel Club accredited course for Canine Behaviour.
