Testimonials (what our customers say):

We have used Paws for Walks since it started and have always had excellent service. We like the fact that Kendal's own characteristics are catered for – nothing is too much trouble, especially short notice requests for walks.

We have used "Paws for Walks" for many years, our Springer Spaniel "Molly" has been poorly the last few years, having to have a mixture of medication changes, nothing is too much trouble and Janice & Gary have taken care of Molly for the times we have to be away. I love to receive the photos of the walks, a lovely touch. I have recommend Paws for Walks to friends, if Janice was unable to look after our pet while we are away, I would rather stay home than leave Molly with anyone else, truly a five star service.

I have known Janice in relation to Paws for Walks for almost 9 years. She has taken care of my dog Jasper, a Bedlington Terrier, over this period of time, walking and also looking after him for residential care when I have been away on business or holiday. Janice has provided the same service to friends of mine and colleagues.

On every occasion I have been happy with Janice's professionalism, her dedication to her work and the animals in her care. Janice has provided an excellent service and on rare occasions when my dog has been ill, she has behaved very correctly. Janice has the best interests of the dogs at heart and the needs of their owners too.

I wish to show my strong and unreserved support for Janice and the way in which she carries out her work with the pets in her care.

My dog Fred stayed with Paws for Walks for the first time in August 2011. I was very anxious about leaving him after we rescued him after being abandoned. I need not have worried. This is a very professional service where the dog receives a very high standard of care, cuddles and exercise. I would recommend Paws for Walks to anyone who are anxious about leaving their pets. I even received photographs of his exploits whilst we were away which was a very nice touch. I also received a written card with an explanation of his activities, his characteristics and the friends that he had made.

I have been using Janice and Gary at Paws for Walks for approx 8 years now, in that time I have found them to be very professional and accommodating in the care and service they provide.

I have two highly active dogs that can get themselves in and out of trouble in a blink of an eye, but I am confident of the care they receive under Janice and Gary. The confidence was proven a few years ago when Janice had reason to contact me that one of our dogs had gone missing, a harrowing time for both owner and dog walker, but I was most impressed by Janice's commitment to finding Finn. Even once I was on site she remained committed to searching for him and there was no question of her leaving until he was safe. He was found safe and well by Janice and myself having gotten himself into a situation he couldn't get out of.

I can thoroughly recommend Janice and Gary at Paws for Walks, I trust them 100% with the care of my very special dogs.

Paws For Walks is a wonderful, friendly local business run by people who really do care for the well being of both pets and owners. When I was taken ill as soon as Paws For Walks were informed, the cats were fed each day and photos sent to me while I'm unable to be with them. Truly reliable, trustworthy with house keys and genuinely good people, I’m very pleased to know those at Paws For Walks.

My Jack Russell (Toby) is a very lovable family dog and when we go away we never worry about leaving him with Gary and Janice at Paws for walks. We would pay anything for his well being and safety but Paws for walk certainly give you value for money and the service is fantastic. Thank you!

I am more than happy to supply a reference for Janice Halford's pet services "Paws for Walks".

Janice has walked my two dogs severeal times a week for a number of years now. She has also provided day care and overnight care during this time.

I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone. She has always shown great care and attention to my dogs and furthermore I feel that genuinely feels affection for all the dogs in her care. I cannot fault the services that she supplies.

I have always received feedback about my dog's behaviour and feel confident that should and untoward incident occur, Janice would deal with it promptly and efficiently, in the dogs best interest.

When I joined up to Paws for Walks I was asked to supply the name of the Vet that the dogs were registered with and also my pet insurance details. By doing this I feel that the expectation is that, if needed, Janice would contact my vet and deal appropriately with the situation.

I hope that this reference conveys my absolute confidence in Paws for Walks and reflect Janice’s professionalism and duty of care as a provider of pet services.

Rustle & Gini, get really excited when I tell them that Janice is taking them for a lovely long walk. I have two very energetic Border Collie’s and its obvious that they have been well walked by Janice. I trust her and she is guardian to the keys to my house. So I can easily say that she is both professional and trust worthy, with my two important family members. Thank you Janice and big double woof!!!x x
