We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.
I have a life long back ground with animals and working with animals, To me they are all to be treated with love, care and respect and as if each one of them is my own. I have owned and worked with Horses, Dogs, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Chinchillas, Ferrets, Hamsters, Mice, Rats and more. I am a qualified groom / riding instructor. Unfortunately bad health forced me to retrained in dog and small animal grooming. Along side this I studied Canine psychology because I love to know why our animals do the things they do and why humans always say they have problems. In fact the animal is normally the one having a people problem, not the owner with a pet problem. I understand or at least try to understand all their needs and wants. To provide the best care. I have taken Canine and Small animal first aid, Small animal care level 2 & 3. I am fully insured and work hard to provide a clean sterile environment with no cutting corners. Health and safety is absolute paramount along with love, kindness, patience and time. All animals are individuals and I appreciate and respect that. Treating them all as individuals means they individually get the best care. All my qualifications can be seen along with my insurance documents. I work with an honest, compassionate manner and all animals and their welfare comes first. I do not believe in stacking animals in for quick and easy money. To do things right takes time, love & passion for little or very small reward financially. I do this because I love animals. There are so many pet businesses that think its a quick easy way to make money and they have no insurance or knowledge. This is freighting and I am against the lack of legislation in this industry. I want animal welfare to be the best it can because of my love for animals. I want to give all animals in my care the very best and in doing so I give the owners the best service possible and hope they go away knowing their pets are safe and being very well cared for. Plus I love all the extra cuddles from the pets that stay with me. I continue to do more courses in animal management, care and so on and refreshing my animal first aid. We never stop learning and I want to know all I can to be the best animal carer possible So when away on holiday, having an operation or any reason your away from home you can be sure your pets are having a 5* holiday of there own.
I have a range of outside hutches all with rain covers and thermal covers for when the weather changes. My hutches range from 4ft up to 7ft. All our hutches have toys which are appropriate for the pets we have inside of them. In the hutches are also feed bowls and water bottles. We do have hay racks which can be taken out depending on our preferences. Given some people think they are dangerous we give the option to you the owner. Are hutches are cleaned and tidied daily and at the end of the week a full deep clean is given. We use dust extracted shaving. Are hutches are at the end of our garden and fenced off so it gives more security over who goes in and out of the hutch area. In front of the hutches we have grass matting down as this is easy to clean and sterilise. We also have a wide range of indoor cages of varying sizes for all types of pets from Rabbits to ferrets and rats. All with good air circulation, light and ideal for all weathers
I have a range of runs and play pens so your pets will get cage free play time each day regardless of the weather. Our outside runs all have weather proof covers but in deep snow and really heavy downpours its not fun being on wet grass so I have plenty of options for all pets to have a really good play around and also many appropriate toys for a variety of pets. All are sterlised bwetween pets to reduce risk of cross contamination.
Health & Hygiene:
All bowls, bottle, toys and equipment get cleaned daily. This is the way I was trained years ago and something I am very serious about. Bottle are all washed out and cleaned along with feed bowls and anything else your pet may use. Hutches and cages are also cleaned out daily, toilets are also emptied and cleaned and sterilised with pet safe cleaning products which my vet has even recommended as they use it also.
Small Pet Boarding Prices
Prices vary from £15 a week ( 7 days ) and depending if there is one or more animals in the hutch. If you want to board a rabbit it would be £30 a week plus £5 for the 2nd rabbit. Additional days are charged accordingly but you will be given a full price including feed, bedding, fresh fruit and veg at the time of enquiry. We do not believe in hidden costs so the price your given will include everything for the duration of your pets stay
Services: GroomingClaw Clipping
There are a number of pets which require regular nail trimming which is no problem at all and I am more than competent and qualified to this for you. There may be a small charge for this service if your not boarding with me and want it as a separate service. All boarding pets can have this service if required free of charge. I do offer pampers for other animals depending on what pet you have. Guinea pigs should not be regularly bathed and rabbits only in extreme cases however they can all have tailor made pampers to tidy them up.

Reviews from Our Guests
Zoe looked after our two rabbits and Guinea pigs for 3 weeks over Christmas.
Whilst our pets where with Zoe we received updates as to how they where with lots of pictures and videos. Christmas day they all had presents.
We cannot reccomend Fluffy Paws Boarding enough and we will definitely use the services again.
Zoe clearly loves caring for animals and nothing is ever a problem or to much trouble.

Zoe looked after our hamster Bella for 16 weeks over the Christmas and New year period. We viewed Zoe's set up and I instantly was impressed with her very obvious love for animals. Zoe had all paperwork to hand showing her qualifications, Insurance details and also gave us access to her pages so we could see reviews.
Whilst Bella was with Zoe we received updates as to how she was, lots of pictures and videos and Christmas day Bella and all the other animals in Zoe's care received a gift suitable for whatever type of pet they where.
We cannot reccomend Fluffy Paws Boarding enough and we will definitely use Zoe's services again. All the cages, toys, play pens and equipment where immaculate and very well cleaned.
Zoe even asked when we picked Bella up at the end of her holiday if there was anything we felt she could improve on.
Zoe is clearly dedicated to making Fluffy Paws Boarding a wonderful place for pets to be on holiday whilst owners holiday themselves. Nothing was to much trouble.

Fantastic service!! Our Guinea pigs were treated like rockstars while they stayed with Zoe. She picked them up AND dropped them back to us. We had Pic and video updates while we were away. Zoe even clipped their nails before she dropped them off! Will def use her services again x

Boarders Response:Thank you, they where wonderful and very funny to look after
Zoe has cared for many animals in the years I have known her. She had always been animal mad and had many pets of her own. The level of care Zoe provides is amazing and she goes above all expectations. All the cages, hitches, runs and play pens are immaculately cleaned and sterilized as is all the bottles, bowls and things she uses. I have never seen someone play with and cuddle animals as much as Zoe does.
When it came to me leaving my hamster and rabbits for the first time ever as I would be away with work for 3 weeks Zoe is the only person I would trust. During they stay I received updates on their well being, photographs and videos. When I arrived home early and turned up at Zoe I wasnt at all surprised to find her with my rabbit hipping around the lounge and playing on a seesaw as well as other things she had been amusing him with.
If you need anyone to look after your pets no matter what breed then look no further than Fluffy Paws Boarding with Zoe.
Zoe's partner also loves animals and is insured to help but he mainly does the cuddles and play so your animal will have lots of love and attention whilst having an amazing time .

Boarders Response:Thank you
Zoe is absolutely wonderful with all animals. Our dog Buster - who has recently passed away, loved staying at Zoe's. He loved snuggling up to her dogs and was treated with the utmost love and attention whilst in Zoe's care. Why would you put your furbaby in kennels when they could have all the love they deserve with Zoe and her family. Zoe also offers grooming too and Buster always used to come home from his groom smelling absolutely wonderful. Would recommend 110%.

Boarders Response:Thank you
I recently went on holiday and used this boarding service for my pet Rabbit.
Zoe was amazing with her, after dropping her off I left knowing that my pet was in safe hands.
I would highly recommend the service and will certainly be using it again when I next go on Holiday.

Boarders Response:Thank you 🐾
A wonderfully home from home service. At the top of Zoe's priorities is animal care and welfare she will always accommodate what the pets knows and loves as long as it is safe to do so. Nothing is too much trouble. Vet approved and defra acknowledged I wouldn't put my pets anywhere else. She had taken lots of training courses to enhance her care service along with her genuine love for animals. Aside from her excellent pet care I would like to say what an utmost professional Zoe is. I know she had had some viscous foul play from another pet care establishment and she has Dealt with this with class fairness and the utmost professionalism to try and sort out. What an amazing lady and god star service.

Boarders Response:Thank you 🐾
Zoe really cares about all the animals she looks after. After showing me around I could see how much she cares for them all like her own. All hunches ,cages and grooming area was very clean and impeccable. Zoe's years of experience with different animals and types of training she has received really comes through. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt relaxed enough to to ask anything even when I felt a little daft. Zoe is extremely knowledgable, friendly, caring and professional. I have no worries about leaving any of my animals in Zoe's care. I highly recommend Fluffy Paws Boarding.
What was also comforting I was shown all insurance paperwork, first aid certification along with other animal care qualifications. Zoe also has references.
