Happy Paws Hotel is essentially a doggie camp. Boasting 10 centrally heated bedrooms and offering our 4 legged residents hours and hours of supervised play, fun and frolics. Residents are socialised in small groups with similiar sized pals where they run and play in one of our 4 tennis court sized grassed enclosures equipped with paddling pools to cool off in the sunshine, with shelter chalets and oodles of fresh water to tipple on during the day's activities. Labradors and Springer Spaniels especially enjoy splashing in the paddling pools! Happy Paws' ethos is "action packed" holidays in a secure, safe environment where all activities are closely supervised by Yvonne and her dog loving staff.
Long walks off the lead, alongside the River Nore with paddling and swimming are enjoyed by regulars with excellent recall.
Clips of the day's action are posted regularly on social media allowing owners to view their 4 legged darlings having fun on their holidays at Happy Paws Hotel. This ensures enormous peace of mind for worried owners who feel guilty leaving their dogs in care.
Subsequent visits become easier in the knowledge that the cherished family dog is guaranteed a fun holiday which gives the dog owner a big smile too. In fact, owners tell me that their darling jumps with excitement when their car pulls in the Happy Paws Hotel driveway. Dogs don't even wave Mummy or Daddy goodbye, so eager are they to hook up with their buddies already playing outside. Dogs love Happy Paws Hotel.
Our dogs have been frequent visitors to Happy Paws Hotel over the past few years. Our old dog "Holly" was a regular until she was almost 15 years old. She used to stay in the house with Yvonne, hanging out with the older dogs at a more leisurely pace. Indeed, she was so comfortable there that when we dropped her off, she would head straight to Yvonne’s kitchen door! A particular favorite was hanging out with Yvonne’s old dog Freddie, sharing doggie chews, in the back of her jeep.
Our other two dogs also love going to Happy Paws. They have so much fun playing with the other dogs in the big enclosures and on the walks by the river, that they come home exhausted! Both of them were rescue dogs and had some trust issues when they first came to us. However, thanks to the great effort by Yvonne and her wonderful team, they have gained so much confidence and have truly come on in leaps and bounds.
We cannot recommend Happy Paws Hotel highly enough. Yvonne and her team treat their "guests" with such great love and understanding, we go away in the certain knowledge that our dogs are in the best and safest of hands. We simply couldn’t imagine sending them anywhere else.
