Our Labrador Ruby, recently stayed, with Sandra and Ian, she is 11yr old and a sensitive dog. This was her first time, at home boarding.Sandra and Ian took the time and patience, to build up her confidence. I would highly recommend Paws To Walk, they are both fabulous with the dogs,caring from them like there own dog Raffi, who is also good, with all his doggie pals.Ruby is booked in to stay with them again!

my mum and dad would like to thank auntie Sandra and uncle Ian for looking after me so well whilst they were on holiday. I really enjoyed being a pampered pooch and playing with all my new doggy pals especially Raffie. I would highly recommend this doggy hotel to my fellow canines the digs are five star the doggy beds are very comfy,walks are very enjoyable and the back garden is very good for sunbathing and playing with my fellow doggy pals. I Cant thank my auntie Sandra and uncle Ian enough for looking after me so well and am already looking forward to my next stay Toby TIGER Bilsland xxx

Two of our dogs have just had a weeks holiday with Sandra and Ian at Paws to Walk home boarding while we had our holiday. They were so well looked after, walked regularly with other dogs and came back to us in tremendous condition. Cannot recommend Paws to Walk highly enough our dogs will be returning for another holiday when we go away again. Thanks again Sandra and Ian for great service.
From Colin Fergyson on
Sandra has been looking after Baxter and Harry for the last 19 always reliable and excellent with the dogs. They both look forward to their lunchtime play break and biscuit treat. Don't know what I would do without her.

Our Bedlington Terrier Keith loves his daycare days and sleepovers/home boarding times at his 'Auntie Sandra's' . He has been going to Sandra's for approximately 5 months and he has developed a lovely bond with Sandra and her husband Iain who treat him like he is their own dog. He really enjoys his walks and playtime with their Miniature Schnauzer, Raffy and the other dogs he meets at Paws to walk! Keith was only only 4 months old when he started going to Paws to Walk so it has also been great for his socialisation too. Sandra provides an excellent service.
From Jasmin on
For 2 years I went to Paws To Walk every Monday, every Tuesday, every Wednesday, every Thursday and every Friday while my mum was at work. I loved it. I played with my best pal Raffy and went lots of walks and got lots of cuddles. I met all the other doggies that go on walks and some doggies that stayed overnight. I sumtimes stayed overnight too. I moved to live in Spain last month and I do miss my aunty Sandra and Raffy LOADS. I reckon if you go on holidays you should let your furryboy or furrygirl go on holiday too to Paws to Walk.
From Admiral Percy Fitzwallace (Fitz) on
Sandra has been walking my lab and springer for over a year now. I would highly recommend her to anyone as being reliable.
From Hazel Stenhouse on
Zack my West Highland Terrier has been with Sandra at Paws to Walk since the beginning & really can't recommend Sandra enough for her dedication to her role as a dog walker & dog boarder ..Sandra is so reliable & flexible & most importantly she knows all her dogs needs very well ..so if you want that switch off when you need your dog cared for..you will certainly get that with Paws to Walk
From Janet Rennie on
We have two working cocker spaniels and they are relentless. We go on holiday knowing that Sandra and Iain care for our dogs as we would. I am so privileged to have them care for my dogs, so much so we organise our holidays round when they can care for them. I wouldn't consider anywhere else.
From Anne Craig on
I have been sending my Cockapoo Mylo here for nearly 2 years . He's absolutely loves going here well walked looked after & sneaks into there bed on an overnight stay . Used loads of other boarding in the past & can honestly say this is more than 5star ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€
From Alana Dick on
Our little Miniature Schnauzer, Meg, has stayed with Sandra and Ian at Paws To Walk, several times, and she really enjoys her little holidays. If we are out walking and we bump into Sandra, Meg always greets her like a long lost pal. Now that our children have grown up, Meg is our little, hairy baby, so we spoil her and we are very choosey about making sure she is looked after properly, and we already have another couple of little holidays booked for Meggie. I am very happy to recommend Paws for Walks for anyone else's little dog.
From Derek Gourlay on
Paws To walk have walked my dog daily for 2 years. Before starting with them my dog was very timid and unsure of other dogs. Since starting with Sandra she has came on leaps and bounds. She loves going her walks and sits at the window waiting for her. Would highly recommend fantastic service!
From Heather on
This is a fabulous dog walking and home boarding service. Our dog is walked every day and also goes to Sandra and Iain for his holidays. It is great knowing your loved pet is well looked after and spoiled more than normal while you are away ! It makes our holidays more relaxed knowing Ollie is well cared for.
Highly recommended and would not go anywhere else now ðŸ¾ðŸ¾
From Diane russell on
Teddy our Miniature schnauzer loves his twice weekly walks with his Aunty Sandra from Paws to Walk. He comes home happy and well exercised. We are safe with the knowledge he is well looked after and cared for. Home boarding is a home from home, he makes himself at home and gets plenty of love and cuddles.
From Janey Gray on
Poppy and Hughie love staying at Paws to Walk. They are well looked after with good walks and they love to stay.
Hughie can be a bit strange but took to both Sandra and Iain easily and he loves his cuddles.
They get nice long walks from our house when we are at work.
A very reliable and professional service.
From Shirley Dunipace on
Bo my lab has been walked by Paws to Walk for over a year now. Sandra is reliable, trustworthy and obviously loves dogs. Bo has settled down on his walks with Sandra, he even has doggy friends to join in walks which is a testament to Sandra and her patience with my lovely but a bit of a loner lab. I would highly recommend Paws to Walk and their boarding service.
