The highlight of dog boarding and doggy day care at Paws Inn is the wonderful outings.  The beach runs and the bush walks where customers bond even more closely while sniffing together. Or as John jokes, “checking their emails”.

Socialising with other dogs on a regular basis is the most valuable part of boarding and day care for your dog.  Bonding on walks with John;  playing hide ‘n seek in the long grass, a game loved by our dearly departed Othello;   relaxing in the garden with Jackie while she has a cuppa and learning how to patiently wait your turn at treat time.
