About Maureen And Natalie

Latest News -

We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded the maximum 5 star grading from our licensing board.

This rating is available for public view on the EHDC website and recognises our skills, knowledge, environment, facilities, care standards and contingency plans.

A full copy is available for clients to view at meet and greets if requested.

About us -

Mother (Maureen) is retired, although she remains a very active lady. She was brought up with Labradors and Retrievers and has been involved in various aspects of animal care throughout her life ranging from puppy trainer, championship dog showing, working field trials, dog breeding, dog grooming, right through to pet shop owner.

She adores animals and has an amazing affinity with them and sponsors several who are unable to find forever homes.

Daughter (Natalie) is a qualified RN who has grown up surrounded by animals. A keen walker and runner (great for active paws), with a love of photography and nature.

Both have many years of expertise, having owned different breeds of dogs, from the very very small right up to the giants as well as cats and small animals from birth through to death.

We have a small menagerie at present, two dogs and three cats.

All our pets are neutered, fully inoculated and are used to meeting new friends. The dogs are very sociable and the cats mingle quite happily although in good weather they usually spend their wakened time out and about.

We also have a pond full of fish, newts and frogs. and as keen wildlife enthusiasts, we are fortunate to have a variety of creatures who visit regularly.

Our motivation -

Lifelong lovers of all animals and passionate about quality care, we have decided to open our house to provide the best home from home experience we possibly can.

We have chosen Pawshake because of its personalised touch and community spirit. Like most we have had to use kennels for our own before but times have changed and we acknowledge that its much nicer and its much more settling to know your treasured pet is enjoying long walks, chasing balls, paddling in rivers, wagging their tail, meeting and playing with new friends, safely curled up asleep or having a new human play games to stimulate their natural instincts while you are away.

Our promise -

Our boarders are seen as part of the family and they enjoy all the comforts of home.

We appreciate that it can be a worrying time for both owners and their fur-babies when apart and so we strive to make the transition as smooth as possible to ensure a happy and healthy stay.

Understandably not all pets like to interact with others and so we have designated quiet areas for those who prefer a little peace but we will always ensure our service is suitable before accepting bookings and we never overbook so you can be assured that your pet(s) will always be our priority.

We do not have kennels, all dogs share the house and garden and we do not use crates unless specifically requested or provided by their owners.

* All visiting dogs must be fully vaccinated. We strongly recommend the kennel cough inoculation (an annual nasal spray easily obtained from your veterinarian) due to the high prevalence of the disease in the south of England.

Jodie, 2020-08-05

What a lucky find! I needed someone to look after my 3 year old cockerpoo for 2 nights whilst we went away and the minute I met Maureen I knew he'd be in very safe hands. Whilst he was with them they cared for him like he was their own and I had such lovely feedback whilst he was there too. Between Natalie and Maureen I can't think there would be anything they couldn't handle or haven't seen before but most importantly for me and Roddy, they genuinely adore and understand dogs. I wouldn't hesitate to leave Roddy with them again at anytime and I know he'd be thrilled to see them.

From start to finish Maureen & Natalie are warm, communicative & instantly put you at ease. My puppy Benji was chomping at the bit to get inside when we pulled up day 2, that’s all the endorsement I need. Thank you!
