Fintan has been going to Mucky Paws since he was a few months old and loves it. The staff are lovely and very caring. I like the way they plan the day for the dogs so they get plenty of exercise in big open fields but also have down time so they rest and calm down. It has been really good for socialising Fintan with other dogs. I know when I leave him that he’s in safe hands.

Elbow and Buddy love their stays at Mucky Paws. Whether it’s just for the day or for over a week, they’re always excited to arrive and they come home happy. They enjoy playing with other dogs in the big play area & we love that they can share a kennel. Carolyn and Gerald and their team are super friendly, and the new online booking facility makes it easy to arrange a stay.

my dog is always happy to jump out of the car and run up to the staff, who every morning greet him as a member of the Mucky Paw’s family. To have the ability to drop my dog off everyday at such great facilities, knowing that he is well cared for and will be walked, offers great peace of mind. Thank you and your staff for looking after Bobby so well.

My first dog Diesel,had x1 day a week play day at Mucky Paws within the first x3 months of the Heslop family starting their kennel business all those years ago! He also stayed whenever we went away. Over the years they have cared for x3 more of my dogs, x 1 with a genital heart condition, and my current boxer with serious food allergies and behavioural issues due to his fear of, basically everything!But despite the dogs issues all x4 of my dogs have truly loved staying due to the care and attention given to each individual dog by all of the dog loving staff. I would not leave my boys without worrying with anyone else.

Dogs are a big part of any family so finding kennels where they feel at home is very important – I had a disaster or two and felt very guilty and then I found Mucky Paws.   This amazing kennels is everything I wanted – Annie is happy to go in – and happy to come home.   The staff know her name and use it, she has great walks and is thoroughly at home with the team.  I think she has as much fun there as she does at home!  The young team are well trained, kind and happy in their work.   Annie gets everything she wants – she runs in with a waggy tail and comes out the same!  The Owners – Gerald and Carolyn – really understand animals and how to care for them.  It’s all I want – a happy dog means a happy family – thank you for caring!
