Loving animals since 2011

About Paws and more...

Paws and more... is based in Poole, Dorset on the sunny south coast and is run by me (Karen Curtis). I have been trading as Paws and more... since August 2011. I am fully licensed with a 5 Star rating under the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 through BCP (formerly the Borough of Poole) to look after your pet, and also follow the DEFRA Code of Practice for the Welfare of Dogs, so you can be sure they'll be safe in my care.

We all understand that pets are more than just animals and that they are just as important as any other family member, so I believe that it's important to give them a healthy, happy and contented life within the family unit. I also know that sometimes life gets in the way and sadly it's 'Fido' or 'Kitty' that suffers, through no fault of the owner and that's where I can help... 

By offering a one-stop pet care solution I can take care of your pet's needs when you can't and because I am flexible I can save you the hassle of shopping around for different services from several companies. I offer an all round service, whether you have a dog, cat, budgie, fish or rabbit, they will always be treated as part of the family!

Before taking on a client I will arrange to visit you and your pet (free of charge) make sure we all get along, ask about your pet's history, likes, dislikes, interactions with other dogs and people to help me understand your pet's needs, before quoting you a fair and realistic price. All new clients will be given a free trial day/overnight stay to ensure that everyone is happy. You also have the option to visit the home where your pet will be staying should you wish by prior arrangement.

Once the trial is completed successfully your pup is then enrolled into the 'Paws Gang' and you will then be asked to fill out a Paws Profile.

I also have a very dedicated team who work alongside me - meet them (and me!) on the Meet the Team page. We are all fully licensed and by having more than one home to offer I can match your dog to the most suitable environment with a variety of other dogs to help with interaction and socialisation.


So, why not give me a call and let me help you and your pet today? Phone lines open Monday to Sunday 0800-2100.
