"We were so worried about leaving Pixel our Dalmatian the first time we went away. She is big, boisterous and bouncy, she has a strong willed mind of her own at times so we were concerned about leaving her with someone in case they couldn't cope, we knew we didn't want kennels because it wasn't enough stimulation for her but knew nothing about home boarding. Karen has experience with big hyper dogs and has no problem with it at all. She will send you photos and videos whilst you are away which is always really nice to see. Her own dogs are lovely and gentle with others. It was Pixel's birthday whilst we were away and she even made her a birthday cake and threw her a party! Karen's a genuinely really nice person and you won't regret leaving your animals with her." Rebecca, Upton

"My lab Nala has a lovely time with Karen - walks and runs with the other dogs, Karen is brilliant so caring and well organised and trustworthy. Highly recommended!" Emma, Lytchett Matravers

"Karen is FANTASTIC and Romeo loves her. Karen always accommodates our needs and is completely trustworthy" Hazel, Parkstone

"Thanks Karen for looking after my babies - great job and I loved the updates and videos, it put our mind at rest seeing them and well done with Dinky she can be a bit of a diva". June, Canford Heath

"Karen at Paws and More has been amazing with my sensitive Springador Murphy. He has been to Karen for doggy day care and for a week whilst we were on holiday. Regular reassuring FB and videos posted and Karen is more than happy to carry out any special requests and happy to work round you for pickups and drop offs. Varied walk locations including local parks, woodlands and the beach. Would definitely recommend Paws and More if you want someone too look after your dog as you would yourself." Suzanne, Poole

"I have been using Karen for about 2/3 months now, highly recommended, she is fantastic with Indie my 8 month old yellow lab. I love the update videos and when Indie only goes I can work and get shopping done and don't have to worry about her." Amanda, Hamworthy

"From the moment you meet Karen you feel at ease and just know that your pets will be well looked after...even your plants! Karen even posted photos for us to see to put our minds at rest. We've already booked again for our next holiday and have recommended her to everyone we know! Great service, great price!" Alison, Broadstone

Fantastic service offered by the very friendly Karen, wouldn't trust anyone else with my dog!" Greg, Hamworthy

"Wouldn't put my dogs with any one else, I know when I go away I will have peace of mind knowing my dogs are not just kept safe and sound but they are also having a great holiday themselves, they really enjoy going to Paws and More, they are taken out every day, either to the beach, park or countryside and Karen always puts photos and videos on facebook, so I can see them enjoying themselves and not sitting around missing me!" Maureen, Upton

"Our 6 year old dog Milo loves going to Paws and More it's like his own little holiday. Karen's passion for animals is clearly visible so it's no wonder Milo is so excited to see her. The sound of her voice alone is enough to start his tail wagging!"

Anne, Wallisdown

"Very pleased, very easy to contact you. Vespa always enjoys her stay and it's good to know she is always well looked after." Jacqui, Lytchett Minster

Brilliant Karen, Jackson loves you to bits and has a great time with you! No hesitation whatsoever in recommending." Lisa, Poole

"My dog Charlie has had 3 or 4 holidays at Paws and More with Karen. He cannot wait to get in her van when she picks him up and is so excited. When he comes home he tries to follow her out the door, so obviously likes being there. I would recommend her to anyone for day care or holidays." Malcolm, Upton

"Henry is so happy when he comes to you, which gives me peace of mind". Jane, Poole

"Paws and More are awesome, I was highly recommended by a friend and what a find, Karen came to meet my boy who completely let me down on the day with behaviour not normally seen, Karen got through his moment and they have had him regularly and I trust them implicitly. Regular facebook posts or texts updating worried "parents" help loads as well. Friendly kind and loving, Jimmy is treated like family and loves going there (so much he sulks on his return, missing his friends.) Cannot recommend highly enough." Carlie, Bournemouth

"Friendly, professional and realiable. We needed a slightly different sevice and Paws and more offered a bespoke service at an affordable price to meet our needs. Dexter loves going for his sleepover with the Paws and more team and spends most of his naps back at home dreaming about it. We can go to work with complete confidence that Dexter is loved, looked after and exercised with as much (if not more!) enthusiasm as we give him at home. Can highly recommend them and do!"

"Karen is very warm and kind. Belle (Lemon Beagle) took to her at once. Finding Paws and more has made life for us much easier". Carolyn, Parkstone

"Karen has always fitted in visits to feed our cats, even with short notice. Excellent attention to detail and nothing is too much trouble. It's an extra bonus that not only does she look after my beloved cats but also keeps an eye on the house whilst we are away. I love the fact that the cats stay in their own home, instead of a cattery. Fantastic service!" Suzanne, Branksome

"Absolutely fantastic! Couldn't be without Karen!" Natalie, Upton
