The whole service is very professional & included an initial meet & greet, completing a comprehensive form of the dog's details, & excellent communication beforehand & during the stay. It is great to have updates throughout the stay which included pictures & videos along with a report card to summarise my dog's behaviour!
I have total confidence in leaving my dog here. He has come home happy, relaxed & healthy & I would recommend Shawbury Paws to anyone wanting their dog to have a loving boarding experience. It is very clear to see that Emma takes care of boarders like her own.

We received regular messages and videos of Rocco having fun which was really reassuring and so lovely to see him so happy, it allowed us to enjoy our holiday with no worries about him at all. When we collected Rocco we were given a full lowdown of his stay as well as a report card and gift for Rocco which was such a lovely touch. I really cant recommend Emma highly enough, Rocco cant wait to visit again soon. Emma went above and beyond in every way and there aren't enough words to thank her for her kindness and commitment to caring for Rocco.

I really appreciated Emma keeping me updated each day during Hudson’s little adventure, as it allowed me to relax knowing he was being taken such great care of and clearly having a such a brilliant doggy holiday. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shawbury Paws and I will most certainly call upon Emma again whenever we need somewhere for Hudson to stay while we’re away.
I’ll definitely use Shawbury Paws for some daycare too now, as I think Hudson is missing his new bessie mate Ted. Thanks Emma & Ted.
