About our Home Boarding

My name is Alison Dewhurst and I started Petite Paws in 2015. I provide Boutique Home Boarding, Doggy Daycare and Walking Service. We are a small, exclusive business and provide our doggy guests with a highly specialised service, each client receives personal attention, catering for individual tastes and preferences in a professional and attentive manner. Love and cuddles comes as standard. We only cater for Small and Toy Breeds. e.g. Bichon Frise, Chihuahua, Dachshund, Lhasa Apso, Maltese, Cockerpoo, Miniature Schnauzer, Pekingese, Pomeranian, Shih Tzu, Scottish, Yorkshire and West highland Terriers just to name a few.


All our precious doggy guests have access to our home along with our own dog Alfie and cat Cookie They can curl up on the sofa or by the fire with the family just as if they were at home. They can run and play in our beautiful, safe and secure garden. At sleep time they can snuggle down in their own warm and comfortable create or soft crate/ bed, which ever they prefer.


We walk twice a day morning and afternoon for approximately 1 hour at a time. However, each dogs needs are individually catered for. We visit our local dog friendly Country Parks and Forests.

Alison has been walking Nelson one of our Borders whilst I have been recovering from a knee op. She was recommended and rightly so. Ali is a really pleasant person who clearly loves dogs. Nelson is,nt the easiest of dogs to walk as he doesn't like other dogs. However it did,nt phase Ali, she actually described Nelson once as a gentleman(don't know about that). Anyway she is a lovely person and highly recommended by me.

Just excellent! Before finding Petite Paws I was really concerned what to do with my pug who had suffered with a few seizures and was subsequently on medication. After speaking to Alison on the phone and then taking Franklin to meet her and her beautiful dogs all the concerns left my mind and I had no hesitation to book him in. Franklin enjoyed a loving home environment from all the family who looked after him giving us regular updates and pictures. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Petite Paws to anybody (in fact I already have recommended them to a friend). Franklin loved it so much he wanted to stay longer! 5*

We recently had our Winnie stay with Alison for home boarding. We were not worried about Winnie for an instant, for it is quite apparent after meeting Alison (and indeed, the whole family!) that she really enjoys the dogs in her care, and treats each one of them as her own. Which is all I hope for when I leave my fur baby behind. Alison is very approachable, honest, and friendly, and gave us periodic updates on Winnie during her stay. Winnie also was groomed during her stay, which we really appreciated. Winnie also enjoyed her stay, and there are videos of her having a ball with others in Alison's care. I would not hesitate to use Alison and Petite Paws again.

Alison has been looking after our cavapoo puppy Buddy since her business opened and he truly does see petite paws as his second home! The care and attention the whole family give to Buddy is priceless. He adores Steve and Alison and I would highly recommend their service. Thank you for taking such good care of our boy! Kim.

Alison provides an outstanding and amazing five star service! Maisie, our cockapoo goes for daycare and boarding and she absolutely loves it at Petite Paws. A very unique and individualised pet boarding/daycare service and I would recommend it for anyone looking for something more personal and specialized. Thanks Alison!
