Reviews from Our Guests
I have used Mandy twice now as the lady who looked after my dog Teddy is now too poorly to have her anymore. I was really stressed about finding someone new and suitable for Teddy but after meeting Mandy for the first time I was soon reassured that Mandy was a lovely caring lady who had a genuine love for dogs. I had photos and regular texts off Mandy while I was away in Florida and Birmingham of Teddy. Teddy looked really well cared for and happy when we picked her up after staying over two weeks. I will use Mandy again without hesitation. It was lovely to know Teddy was in good hands while I was away and I could relax and enjoy my holiday without any worries.
From Sharon Brown on
Just like to say a big thank you Mandy for looking after frank.
I know and can't rely and trust you to make sure frank had a good stay with you.
Very well recommended.
From Sharron Lane on
Mandy offered our Golden Retriever Elsa an excallent level of care. Elsa was still missing our other dog Evey who unfortunately died recently, but she loved staying with Mandy and Tasha. Mandy was willing to follow our dog's raw food diet and chop fresh vegetables for her. An excellent service thank you so much Mandy.
From Carole Bailey on
Left our Spanish Water Dog puppy (Playa) with Mandy and Tasha for 12 nights while we were on holiday. As Playa had only been in the UK for a short time (she is a Spanish Spanish Water Dog) we felt a home environment would be better rather than kennels, and (thanks to Mandy and Tasha) we weren't wrong. Playa immediately fitted in and didn't want to come home even after our introductary visit. Mandy really loves her dogs which was evident from our vey first meeting, and went the extra yard to ensure Playa had everything she needed and faithfully followed her usual routine - we couldn't have asked for more and would not hesitate in recommending Mandy (and Tasha)' service.
From Mark and Carol on

From Jane & Paul whiting on
As first time dog owners and having only rehomed Nettle, our Border Terrier around 5 months before going on holiday, we were naturally nervous about leaving her after getting her settled at home. We felt we wanted a more home from home experience for her, and that's when we came across Mandy through the website. We visited Mandy prior to the stay and we immediately felt at ease. She is very friendly, clearly loves dogs and we knew it would be right for all of us.
Mandy was very flexible prior to the stay, allowing us to bring what we wanted to make her time there comfortable, and Mandy is also very good at keeping to a similar routine to the one at home. Being able to drop off and pick up at convenient, pre-arranged times is such a good service, particularly if you have long journeys etc.
Nettle stayed for 7 days, and we were sent regular pictures and videos showing what a great time she was having, and at times doing more sunbathing than we could! She clearly loved playing with Mandy's dog Tasha, which was re-assuring and allowed us to enjoy our holiday safe in the knowledge all was well.
When we picked Nettle up it was clear to see she had a great time, and immediately settled back in at home as if she hadn't been away - she probably missed having Tasha around and we will definitely be using Mandy's home boarding in the future. She clearly loves dogs and nothing was too much trouble.
We would highly recommend, and indeed we already have! Thank you Mandy!
From Martyn on
My little boy, Jock, loves his own 'holiday' when we go away. Mandy is a fantastic 'mommie' and he just fits in right with her tremendous set-up. Fantastic peace of mind when we go away, knowing Jock will be loved and looked after as 'one of her own'.
From Ron Dawson on
Thank you Mandy for looking after Tara for me, she had such a good time. We will be back soon.
From Jane Johnson on
I was very worried about leaving our 2 year old rescue dog whilst we went away for 9 days. We did not want to use a traditional kennels in case it set Wilma back from the progress she had made whilst being with us so wanted to try home boarding instead. Right decision! Most of the worry I had disappeared but I was still concerned about our little dog feeling abandoned.I need not have worried. Mandy was very reassuring and it is obvious she is absolutely mad about dogs! Mandy kept us up to date with how Wilma was doing whilst we were away with the added bonus of a few photos. We never thought Wilma would settle that well because of her history but she had a great time. I will certainly use Mandy again when we go away. I can not recommend her strongly enough.
From Paula Snaith on
We were so worried about leaving our two dogs,having only had a family member care for them when we went away.Mandy was recommended and I can say she was wonderful.Her love for dogs just radiates and she could not have been more caring to our dogs than we are.Everything we asked regarding feeding,medication etc.,.was no trouble and she even sent us a picture of them so we could see they had settled.Would recommend her to anyone without hesitation and will definitely use her service again.
From Kay Jordan on
My two lovely but lively girls recently stayed with Mandy for just over 2 weeks and I couldnâ€™t have wished for a better carer. Mandy gave my girls lots of love and attention alongside many much needed walks and even brought them to see me a couple of times before their return home. I would certainly recommend Mandyâ€™s home boarding to anyone who wants the comfort of knowing their doggy pals will be well cared for during their stay. Thank you Mandy xx
From Chris on
I cannot recommend Mandy and her brilliant service enough. Tyson loves staying with mandy and Tasha and treats it literally like his second home. Which is so reassuring for me to know he is enjoying himself and well looked after whilst we are away. Mandy has helped us out recently too at very short notice when my son was admitted to hospital. Nothing is too much trouble and we feel very lucky to have found her. Thank you Mandy x
From Lindsey Westwood on
I have just been staying at Mandy's house with her dog Tasha because my mum & dad went away for a few days.
I had a great time, I had lovely walks and Mandy played football with me in her garden. I was allowed upstairs with her at night which meant I wasn't on my own downstairs.
I hope my mum & dad go away again soon, then I can go & see Tasha & Mandy again, great fun. Thank you for looking after me so well.
From Rory on
Our 2 yr old golden retriever Amie stayed for 2 weeks with Mandy recently (first time). We knew instantly when we met Mandy that leaving our precious four legged friend with her was the right thing to do. Amie's stay was certainly "Home from Home" she was comfortable and we enjoyed our holiday without any stress. Highly recommended.
From Angie Beckett on
This is the second time we have left our dog Poppy with Mandy. On my way to Mandy's I worried "what if Poppy doesn't remember Mandy, what if she is distressed".......I pulled up outside Mandy's and Mandy came out to greet up, Poppy was so excited to see Mandy after cuddles from Mandy Poppy followed Mandy straight into the house. So much for " the what if's"! Mandy's dog Tasha came to greet us, then ran to her toys and started dropping her toys at Poppy's feet. Mandy updated how Poppy was doing and it was so lovely not to have to worry. Mandy is fantastic with the dogs in her care and treats them as her own. I can highly recommend PAWS 4 PALS and we wouldn't leave Poppy anywhere else. Thank you so much Mandy and Tasha xxx
From Lynn Burton on
We left Ron our 21 month old Welsh terrier with Mandy for a week while we took a well deserved break.
As this was the first time we had left him with anybody we were a little apprehensive at first but Mandy made us feel confident to leave our little terror in her capable hands
Ron loved his holiday and didn't seem too bothered about coming home!
We were so lucky to find Mandy and will definitely use her services again in the future.
From Christian Hawksworth on
So glad we met Mandy ,my two dogs one old greyhound and one young and slightly mad lurcher spent a weekend with Mandy.
It's was such a relief to go away and not worry about either dog.
Our dogs are our babies and Mandy got that!
From Lorraine Merian on
Our little pack loved their holiday with Mandy so much, they made us go away again just so they could go back and be spoiled all over again.
I can't recommend highly enough
From Ian Womersley on
Lucy,a collie cross is nearly 16 years old and I was becoming increasingly worried about leaving her in kennels. I found Paws for Pals on this website and rang Mandy to arrange a one night and then a two night stay. From the moment Lucy arrived she immediately settled in and Mandy was wonderful with her.
I found the form to fill in with all Lucy's needs and the fact that I can contact Mandy during the stay very reassuring.
I would recommend Paws for Pals to anyone.
From Sheila Mahon on
Mandy looked after our 18 month old dog Poppy for two nights. We were a little worried how she would be, would she eat, would she pine for us? Hmmm seems she was having far too much fun to miss us!
Mandy reassured us by text that Poppy was settled, sent photographs and texts with updates. This meant we had no worries and could enjoy the wedding. Can highly recommend Mandy and we will be taking Poppy for a holiday again, Thank you so much Mandy for looking after Poppy xxx
From Lynn Burton on
Both of my dogs enjoyed the stay with Mandy. During my trip away I sent several e.mails for current updates on how they were coping away from home for the first time. Mandy responded back with pleasing news on them both. I fully recommend home care at Mandy's and will be using her services again.
From Johanna gault on
Would just like to thank Mandy for looking after Tessa she loved staying with you and being a Weimaraner that's praise indeed . I would recommend Mandy to all my friends and family you can see how much she loves the dogs in her care and I get a guilt free holiday. Thanks Mandy x
From Sharon Austerfield on
Mandy provides an excellent service tailored to the needs of your dog.
My young,lively Golden Retriever has been cared for by her several times and I know it has been a happy experience on each occasion.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mandy to other caring dog owners.

5âï¸+ pet boarding. first time staying with Mandy and definitely won't be the last. My 9 year old Jack Russell loved his holiday, lots of toys, walks and belly rubs. He didn't want to come home and sulked all the way home in the car.
From Elaine Page on
I highly recommend Mandy, my 4 year old boxer has stayed here twice now and has always had a great time. Lots of toys and access to garden/walks. 5* treatment- he doesn't want to leave!
