Murphy's Paw

Doggie Services

Our Doggie Services

From doggie daycare and boarding to dog grooming, Murphy's Paw is a small family business with the ethos of offering a ‘home from home’ service remaining our priority.


This is a popular option for those who are out all day and do not want to leave their dogs home alone. Drop your dog off with us and pick them up on your way home –simple! And while you are out your four legged friend/s will be walked (for at least an hour – we like our woodland adventures!), pampered (sofas and beds galore!) and they’ll have the opportunity to play inside and out (all dog secure areas). They will have all the love and attention in the world, so you can be guilt-free and safe in the knowledge your dog is happy!


A great alternative if you’d rather not kennel your dog. The same applies as for daycare but with the added bonus of a sleepover! We also try to walk twice a day to help with a good night’s sleep. No need to bring beds as we have lots of comfy sleeping arrangements (but if you would like to bring a favourite bed that’s fine too!) It really is a home from home and we have lots of happy, waggy customers who think so too!

Please note:- For doggie customers who've not stayed with us before - we like you to come and visit us here first (you can bring your owner too!) and if everyone is happy we'll arrange a daycare session and an overnight stay to ensure everyone is happy before boarding. Dogs also need to be up to date with worm and flea treatments please.


A daily walk (sometimes two) comes as part of daycare or boarding. We vary the walks from day to day to keep it interesting and stimulating for us all. We never walk more than six dogs at a time and always ensure safety comes first. We like to walk our local woodlands and countryside where our dogs can run free and explore their surroundings. We ask for owners signed written consent for off lead walking to comply with insurance requirements. We never let a dog off lead without this. If you are not sure how your dog will behave off lead then we will walk on lead until we are all confident that running free is appropriate and safe.


Whether you have a pug that needs a pamper or a Lab that's been wallowing in the woods we are confident in making your pet feel fab and smell sweet! From classic cuts to tidy ups we aim to please both you and your four legged friend. A registration form will need to be completed covering doggie and owner details. This will include doggie medical history, personality and the type of groom required. Your dog will have one to one attention throughout the groom with comfort and welfare naturally being top of the list. Our aim is to provide a positive grooming experience where we have happy, waggy dogs returning with a spring in their step for more pampering!

"I have used 'Murphy's Paw' many times for day care, boarding and walking for my dogs Kizzy, Toby and Lilly. We have always had a reliable and friendly service and I would happily recommend to others"
