The advanced bookings and positive feed-back from clients shows just what PAWS INN is able to offer over and above many of the larger pet care establishments.

"With limited numbers, we're nearly booked out by July for the Christmas holidays," said Jackie who is delighted to hear that long time client David is having a wonderful overseas honeymoon over Christmas and New Year, leaving his other beloved, Coco, at Paws Inn for five weeks.
And an old school pal of Jackie's sons have quickly snapped up a New Year holiday spot for their dog, Moses.
Their pictures will be included in their updated website.

As Jackie and John pointed out, in the weeks before last Christmas they had to sadly refused around two and three potential customers a day.
This year they are making an effort to increase doggy beds as well as bringing in extra"staff"(trusted friends) for holiday makers


CASPER, the Brittany Spaniel, is, as owner Ron Dyak says "a hand-full". But adds: "he comes back to us happy, healthy and tired and that's a good thing. The ease of initially establishing a data record and the follow-up visitor check-ins are effortless and efficient. There is no concrete or wire-fenced kennels -- only happy dogs having the run of a great little place. I can recomment Paws Inn as the ONLY place we would leave our beloved doggie."

Nikkie Doherty is another happy customer, describing her staffy-X Bruno (above in red collar) "like a brand new dog" after his stay at the Inn. "I'm not sure if you would acknowledge yourselves as dog whisperers Jackie and John. But Bruno seems to have developed a sense of well being - and even muscles. I think Paws Inn is probably the best open ground for holiday stays for my dog. He's truly happy and his behavious a lot more mannered. Thank you for being diligent and caring to my little friend. I'm happy to recommend you to other pet owners."

Mudgee the Jack Russell snuggling up to Braxton {in our Poto Gallery) is owned by Craig and Florence Dent who left him at Paws Inn while holidaying in Fiji. "Regular up-dates and photos showed us how well he was being looked after and how happy he was hanging out with other dogs, particularly Braxton. We would highly recommend Paws Inn to anyone who needs a caring environment for their dog while they are away," they said adding "being able to leave our car at the property was an added bonus."

Among Paws Inn regulars is Baron Von Awesome.

Kevin O'Toole knows the Baron is a favourite: "Jackie and John at Paws Inn always treat Baron Von Awesome as their own taking him on loads of walks per day and, being big softies, allow him to sleep close by so he doesn't get lonely. The location is great and being a smaller facility, has the warmth and friendliness that could never be replicated by the big boarding kennel companies."

Here he is having a bath and PetX shampoo after a wild, wintery walk.

Benny (pictured right with his precious ball) had his first holiday away from home at the Inn. Owner Tania, who lives on the northern beaches and runs her dog grooming business -- The Polished Pet -- there, was happy to head to Botany Bay to find the right environment for Benny: "From the regular updates and pictures we could see he was happy and felt quite at home! It's really comforting to know we now have somewhere for him to stay, feel loved, safe, happy and well looked after while we're away. Thank you so much Jackie, John and Braxton."

Being a small, family business, Paws Inn is able to make that extra effort for last minute dramas. Othello the "Black Prince", pictured below, is one such customer. Owners, Stephanie Brantz and husband Simon, both TV sports journalists, are often called away at the last minute. This year the six week booking was made well ahead as both Simon and Steph headed to Russia to cover the World Cup.

"We hate going away when it means we have to leave our much loved dog, Othello, at a kennel. With unexpected work requirements, we were struggling to find somewhere to leave him. We found Paws Inn on the web, Jackie not only houses Othello, but gives him such a good time I'm not sure he ever wants to leave. We were reluctant to ring to check on him (even though we wanted to) but an email from Jackie, along with pictures, let us know how much he was enjoying his own 'holiday'. A very relaxed pooch. He has fabulous walks with John and a comfy sofa to nap on -- his idea of Doggie Heaven. I'm sure he just waits for us to go away so he can chill out at Paws Inn".
