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.
Would highly recommend. This is a dog kennel like no other!! Our little guy Cookie loved being able to play & socialise with all the doggies he was grouped with! Cookie has anxiety issues & Evelyn was absolutely fantastic with him. We were delighted & so reassured when later on the day we left him we received a video of Cookie, totally at ease & happy after his fun day at Happy Paws. We will be travelling from West Cork to Kilkenny again just to use Happy Paws.
