‘Let me take the lead for a while’

Dog WalkingDog Boarding

A professional, reliable and caring service in Bearsted and neighbouring areas offering Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Services

Welcome to Paws For Thought. My name is Sue and, as someone who has spent my whole life with pets, I know how important it is to be assured that your pets are in safe hands. We all lead busy lives, as I know from having commuted to London for over 30 years, and need to know that our pets are being well looked after when we have to leave them home alone. Let me give you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are happy and exercised, whatever the weather, while you are at work, on holiday or just out for the day. Like humans all dogs are different and have different needs. Their wellbeing is of the utmost importance to me, so please call to discuss how I can tailor my service to best suit them – whether it be a less public area for an anxious dog, or close to your home for a dog that doesn’t like travelling in a car. Most of my bookings come from recommendations and I look forward to getting to know your pet, to make it feel special and ready to welcome you back later.

I am in possession of a 4 star home boarding license for up to 4 dogs.  License number 21/01418/ANEST, valid until 03/09/2023.

I am fully insured (including Key holder insurance), DBS Certified, Certified in Animal First Aid and Dog Behaviour, Dog Training and Pet Sitting.  British College of Canine Studies Course – Distinction in Complete Canine Care Diploma 9th February 2022

Please visit my facebook page – pawsforthoughtbearsted to see some of the dogs that have been in my care.
