After not going away for years Joy looked after our 2 cats at quite short notice. She is honest, reliable and totally trustworthy. She kept in regular contact with updates whatever the time of day. Joy tries her absolute best and will go above and beyond when taking care of your animal particularly animals that are nervous. Such great service and very professional. Many thanks Joy! Laura, Rowley Regis

We've had Floyd for eight years now and he is absolutely my fur baby; before moving 2 years ago, we had the luxury of an array of neighbours who took it in turns to look after each other's pets meaning that he always got to stay in his own routine and home. When we moved in 2014, the thought of having to put him in a cattery was enough for me to not want to go on holiday and we are so lucky that we found Pet Pawz! The first time that we used the service, Joy took the time to come and meet us and Floyd in our home. She took extensive notes on how our magic cat flap worked, his schedule for food and being locked in and let out every night and morning and we felt at ease immediately. Since then, we have been on numerous holidays, long and short and every time I can genuinely say that I don't worry about him at all! In April this year, we got another cat, Cerrone - unlike Floyd who is friendly, cheeky and probably climbed Joy's leg more that she would like for treats and food, Cerrone was an ex -stray, rescued from a feral colony. She was painfully timid to start with and still, does not do well with strangers so, we were amazing when, the first time Pet Pawz looked after the both of them, we received a picture of her happily waiting to be fed (instead of hiding until we had vacated the kitchen) This just proves that this isn't an 'in and out' service - they spend time with Floyd and Cerrone and they are fussed and fed and treated like they would be when we are at home. The daily updates and pictures that are sent are such a comfort. I know that there are in no better company when we are away and Joy's care doesn't just stop at the cats; little bits and pieces such as pulling blinds, putting the bin out if we have forgotten make for a brilliant service. The added bonus of coming home late at night from a 2 week holiday and finding bread and milk for late night tea and toast was the happiest sight (other than the cats) that we could have found. I would recommend Pet Pawz to anyone :) Charlie, Halesowen


We had never used professional pet sitters before Pet Pawz but now, we will never go back. From the start Joy filled us with confidence with her quiet competence and professionalism. She did an initial home visit and took loads of notes which was followed up by us visiting their home and a further home visit just before the holiday. We went away feeling confident that our most treasured possession (if you can own a cat), Pumpkin, and our home were in very good hands. Throughout the holiday, Joy sent text messages and photos to reassure us all was well and when we got back we found milk and bread in the fridge which was really nice, thoughtful and very welcome. The best reference, however, comes not from us but from Pumpkin herself. Despite being a rescue cat, she is really fussy and friendly. Previously, we have had to have fuss catch up for about a week after we got back. Not this time! She had obviously had fuss and attention, as well as food, whilst we were away and was her normal happy self from the get go. Pet Pawz really care about animals and understand how their owners feel about leaving them behind. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.. Dawn & Steve, Halesowen


Going away and leaving your treasured pets at home is never easy, for them or for you. Joy and her team made our break even more pleasant with regular updates and photos of our little babies, to show that they're getting on fine (too fine) without us. Looking forward to our next break without having to worry about our little beauties as much. Richard


My girls enjoyed their stay with Joy at Pets Pawz. I would definitely recommend as I was provided an excellent service with text updates to let me know how my rabbits were doing. Very pleased, keep up the good work!! Lotte


So I've had to leave my 9 month old puppy for the first time to go away for work, he's staying with someone who couldn't walk him so I reluctantly started to think about a dog walker. Having seen dog walkers with 5 or 6 dogs on a lead standing around chatting I was a little nervous until I remembered seeing Luke walking the most beautiful golden retriever around Warley Woods in his Pet Pawz fleece talking to the dog as any owner would. I was sold as so had a trial run with Luke. I'm 4 days into my week away and I am getting daily updates and photos that give me a real sense of what he's been up to and how happy he is. It's incredible! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pet Pawz to anyone. Jessica, Smethwick

If you're anything like us, we had never used a dog walker before and we were quite nervous about it, because that's our baby girl daughter with fur. Our life! But I'd like to reassure anyone that is thinking of using any of the services that PetPawz provide, that there is absolutely no reason at all for you to have any doubt or apprehension. Luke and Joy have been a complete blessing for us and our girl Missy. They were happy to meet with us and Missy as many times as made us comfortable before we started using their dog walking services. This was all about trust for us, especially when you're handing over the keys to your house to someone, but it's a great touch that they invite you to their house too beforehand to gain that trust from you. Missy loves Luke and Joy and we've never looked back. Extremely respectful and clear on what they will and won't do when they collect your baby and I always get a text after every walk about how Missy got on and sometimes photos. We can't say enough about them and we can't fault them (and I normally expect far too much from folk!). I'd recommend them to anyone. You won't regret it. Faye, Halesowen

Pet Pawz has always provided my pets with a safe, secure and friendly service. I know that I do not need to worry and can fully relax knowing that everything is taken care of. Carmel, Halesowen

Pet Pawz have been walking Paddy, our pug for over 12 months now, he has recently boarded with them, he was so happy, he was looked after like their own pet. I get daily updates on how he enjoys his walks, won't let anyone else look after Paddy, I would highly recommend Pet Pawz. Joy and Luke really care about the pets they care for. Julie, Oldbury

Thanks so much Joy for all your help with looking after Giselle whilst we were on holiday. Your services is second to non and make me feel so at ease on holiday knowing you was going to see her everyday. Your text updates made me feel more relax and enjoy my holiday knowing she was ok. Your special touches of milk and bread are amazing and went down a treat after a 5 hour delayed flight. Thanks so much again Joy, will definitely recommend you and look forward to using your services again soon. Rose, Halesowen

Thanks so much for looking after Blossom our rabbit for her holidays, it was so lovely to receive text updates how she was & thanks so much for cleaning her out when we collected her. Highly recommended, Blossom's looking forward to her next holiday with you xx Julie, Halesowen

I can't recommend Pet Pawz Dog Boarding and pet sitting services highly enough. Luke comes in around the ever changing shift patterns in our household and our Lhasaphoo, Trevor loves to see him and loves going for his walks with him. He has been to stay for the day and is looked after brilliantly, playing all day with Lexie the resident German Shepherd and sleeping soundly all night - no doubt dreaming of his playtime at Joy's by the look of his twitching paws. Finding Joy and Luke and their brilliant service has meant so much to our family and means we can enjoy having our puppy knowing that he will always have someone there to walk him and keep him company when were at work. Thanks Pet Pawz! Deb, Bartley Green

I would like to thank Joy and her family for the outstanding care given to our pampered, anxious, elderly King Charles Cavalier, who has a list of chronic health problems and requires round the clock attention. Our doggie has never before been left with anyone except close family until we went on holiday for 2 weeks in August, so we were worried about leaving her to go abroad. However, right from the first phone call, I felt Joy was special. We had several pre-visits to get Cassie used to her holiday home and while we were away, we received frequent texts updating us of her wellbeing, which were really re-assuring. Joy treated Cassie as if she were her own dog. Cassie also loved having the constant company of other people as she was not left alone once (a luxury she does not have even with us!). Joy is not only caring and friendly, but also highly professional and has adapted her home for the benefit of the animals she cares for. I would not hesitate in asking Joy again to look after our dog and cannot recommend her strongly enough. I was actually a bit disappointed that Cassie did not seem to want to come with us when we picked her up! I'm sure she loved every minute of her holiday at Joy's and also made some lifelong friends while she was there! Claire, Old Hill

Thank you all so much for how well you looked after Tyson. It's one of the hardest things we've had to do leaving Tyson while we went away for a week. We had nothing to worry about though as he was in your very capable hands. Your daily updates and pictures of Tyson reassured us so much. I'd recommend your services to anyone as Tyson was so happy being with you. Thank you so much xxx Kerry Arrowsmith

Cannot put into words how brilliant Joy and co was, they took our dog for a walk, took photos so we knew he was ok and even got us a card from our dog on our wedding day. Deserves more than 5 stars!! Brilliant! Liz Hall

Joy and her family offer a super service. We had only had a our dog Trigger a short while when he went to Joy. The pre-visits were lovely especially for my son who got to know where his dog would be whilst we were away. I was reassured with the messages and photos Joy sent me too. Furthermore we have attended a Dog Awareness visit through PetPawz and have been put in touch with a super lady for grooming our dog. Thank you xxx Louise Allport


Pet Pawz looked after my Mums dog Ziggy whilst we were on holiday (04/2014). From the start Ziggy was made welcome in Joys home and every effort was made to make sure Ziggys routine and daily habits were accomodated. Whilst we were away Joy kept us up to date with Ziggys day to day updates which was reassuring as we'd never boarded him before. Im confident that should we have another opprotunity to go away without Ziggy we will be able to leave him in Joys capable hands and I know he will be more than happy there. Thank you again Joy & family for having Ziggy x Clare Bendall



Pet Pawz looked after my our Shihtzu Lucy at the weekend and I can definitely say I will be asking them again to have her. We had regular updates by text and they didn't mind if we texted them. Lucy enjoyed every minute of her time there. Thank you so much Pet Pawz for the wonderful time Lucy had with you xx Clare Griffin




There's good customer service and then there's GREAT customer service and Pet Pawz definitely offers a great Cat Sitting service. After 24 years of cat ownership I have used lots of different cat sitting services over the years and there is a reason why there have been lots. Generally most of these companies treat this as a part time job, something they do on the side and are generally not very professional in their business approach. Well, when you're looking for someone to take care of a family member for you, and many cat owners will know what I mean in that regard, then you are looking for someone you can trust 100%, will be completely professional and really care about providing a great service that means something. This is what Pet Pawz is all about. From the quick response to the initial enquiry, setting things up, the daily emails to let us know everything was OK at home, to coming back to find some complimentary grocery provisions - everything was 1st class Service, which is what we have been looking for from a Cat Sitting service for some time, someone to look after our special family member when we can't be there that we can trust and provides that extra level of customer service. Glenn Burnard

For the past 3 years Joy has been seeing our pets on most days in the working week. Over this time our 3 greyhounds, staffy and cats have got to know Joy and get excited when they see her outside the home as well as her visits. It gives us great comfort knowing Joy is there to look after themwhile at work and completely trust her with the care of our pets. During every visit we get a text to say if everyone's ok and are left a visit card with further details of the daily happenings. Joy and the family are lovely people who go the extra mile and have become part of our extended family. We would have no hesitation is recommending their services. Karina Chapman

A big thank you to Joy, Steve and Luke for looking after our little babies Dolly & Boo (Shih Ztu's) ... they had a fab time and they looked so at home and comfortable when we went to collect them ... wasn't sure they wanted to come back home. Joy text us every day with an update of how they were which put our minds at rest. They were very well looked after and spoilt whilst on their holidays! I would definitely recommend Pet Pawz and would certainly book my little girls in for a holiday again. So thank you very much for taking such good care of them ... 5* ..... Jane & Kate Chesterman ... and love from Dolly & Boo xxxx

I would highly recommend using joy and family for the excellent wedding service they provide. Joy took out the stress of the potential of my two dogs Martha and George being left alone for several hours. Joy came to collect the dogs shortly before I left for the church and then I had the happy surprise of my two best friends Martha and George being there to greet me and my bridesmaids when we arrived at church. Joy and her husband are very experienced and put me at ease knowing that my dogs were in safe hands. They were walked, fed and loved the whole time they spent with Joy. I would add that Joy came to meet the family and my beloved dogs and as well as it being clear that she is a dog lover she is also very professional. She asked lots of questions and wanted to know everything about their care needs and requirements. I knew my dogs were in great care! Any dog owner planning a wedding and stressing about doggy care or the prospect of having their four legged friends there with them on their special day should certainly use their services. Zoe Mccarthy-Biggs

We have two rescue cats that are still very timid and scared of new people and surroundings so we didn't want to put them into a catttery where they would become unsettled. We found pet Pawz online and it was the perfect solution. Joy came round to meet us and took extensive notes regarding the cats routines and their requirements. We were a little apprehensive about leaving them alone however joys daily text messages put our minds at ease which allowed us to completely chill out whilst on holiday. We came home to two very happy cats who had been looked after. Thank you pet Pawz for providing the perfect solution to our pet care problems. We would defiantly recommend pet Pawz to anyone who needs their pets looking after without using a catttery or kennels and we will be using your services in the future no doubt. Louise - Oldbury

We have been using Pet Pawz for 6 months and we wish we had started sooner. Not only are we at complete ease when we go on holiday leaving our cheeky boxer in their hands, we know Maisie absolutely loves her stay!! She's spoiled with cuddles and treats and she is always walked regularly. Since boarding Maisie with them, we decided regular dog walking would help us, and it also means Maisie keeps a close relationship with them for when we go away and she has to stay again. She even knows Joy by name and goes into fits of excitement when we mention Joys name on the day of her walks! I wouldn't consider any other boarder / walker and I don't think Maisie would either! Thanks pet pawz for making things a little easier for us, and giving Maisie a fun time when she stays with you and for ensuring we're at ease knowing she's walked when we're working. Kirsty & Matt

Alfie is my beautiful German Shepherd 'rescued' dog. He had a tough start in life which has meant a lot of work dealing with health issues, behavioural problems and severe separation anxiety therefore I was very apprehensive about leaving him for 5 days. However, I knew within 2 minutes of meeting Joy that she and her family would do their absolute best for him. And they did. To come back and see my beloved dog looking so happy, healthy and well-cared for was absolutely wonderful and a huge relief. I had missed him so much but he was too busy enjoying himself to miss me! That is the way it should be and I cannot thank Joy, Steve and Luke enough for making that happen. Alfie will definitely be back, safe in the knowledge that he will be in the best care possible. THANK YOU! Anj, Birmingham

Wow! What a great service! We were nervous about leaving all our pets, including pedigree Bengal cats, while we were away for three weeks. But Joy's daily emails, photos and texts totally reassured us all was well. She and her husband were very thorough and professional in taking notes and listening to all of our pet's needs. It is very rare a service genuinely exceeds your expectations, but this one did! Thank you very much for all the personal touches. I've already recommended you to friends and family. THANK YOU PET PAWZ! Heidi & Greg, Halesowen

We would like to say a massive thankyou to Joy at Petpawz for the wonderful service she provided when our 2 year old black labrador Leo came to stay while we were away on holiday. On meeting Joy, her husband and their beautiful german shepherd Lucy at their home, any worries we had about leaving Leo disappeared as we knew instantly that this was the perfect place for Leo to stay. The love, care and attention Leo received was outstanding and was treated like one of the family. We got regular texts about Leo's activities during the day and how he was getting on. We would 100% recommend Petpawz to anyone and will definitely use their services again. Thankyou Donna and Trevor Baker, Oldbury

Many thanks for taking such excellent care of Yogi & Marv whilst we were on holiday. The text messages and pictures you sent made us feel re-assured that our cats we're healthy and happy. On returning home we were welcomed by a pair of very relaxed and settled moggies, it was as if we'd never been away. I would have no hesitation in recommending Joy's fantastic business, as she provides an excellent level of care at a very reasonable price. We'll never use a cattery again! Andy, Bearwood

Thank you so much for the excellent service. The whole family were anxious about leaving Ella in someone else's care while we went on a weekend break, however, she was made to feel so at home and the whole family were reassured by frequent texts letting us know that she was fine and enjoying a holiday of her own! Ella can't wait for her next holiday at Joy and Steve's home (and promises she wont be pinching any more shoes!) We would recommend their boarding to anyone. Thank you so much! Sue, Terry and Ella, Dudley

Thank you for looking after Timmi last week while I was away on holiday. It was lovely to receive your texts when I was away, to reassure me that everything was okay. I also enjoyed reading the report cards on my return which only served to emphasise the point that his behaviour was the same as normal. I can't thank you enough for the service you provided to me and would not hesitate to use you again and to recommend you to friends and family. I want to especially compliment you, Joy, on you approach to your clients. Your easy going nature, the efficiency and in depth questions/forms gave me the confidence in Pets Pawz's service. Elaine, Halesowen

Max and Wilf, (my rabbit and guinea pig) were looked after exceptionally well by Pet Pawz. On arrival, there was great attention to all of Max's and Wilf's needs and requirements during their week stay. Joy was so attentive and reassuring, and gave me regular text updates to let me know that they were both OK. Max and Wilf were given regular attention and on collection were beautifully clean, happy and settled. I can't thank Joy enough for providing such a professional and caring service for my rabbit and guinea pig. I would highly recommend the Pet Pawz small animal boarding service. Bethany, Quinton, Birmingham

We would just like to express our thanks for the love and care that was given to Beau when we went on holiday. Beau settled right in with no stress and had a holiday of her own! Meeting lots of new friends and lots of walks, giving kisses to Enzo along the way. We would recommend your service to anyone looking for a 5 star service. Thanks again and see you soon. Dawn, Michael, Thomas & Beau, Tipton

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Honey and Gracie while we were on honeymoon. Your service is first class and we loved receiving the update texts and photos you sent while we were away which really put our minds at rest. Being rescue cats, they are very timid around strangers but you quickly managed to win them round and give them lots of cuddles. We will certainly use your services again and would unreservedly recommend you to anyone needing loving care for their pets. Paul & Jules, Harborne

We have recently left our 9mth old choc lab Henry in the care of Joy and family at Petpawz to go on a 2 week hol abroad. We were slightly worried as we have not left Henry before so first time we were a little concerned. Joy text us every day and we were soon put at ease by Joy informing us of Henrys activities with Joys own dog Lucy bless! and Joy even slept with Henry to make sure he was settled! When we collected Henry we could see he had a really good time, happy and had grown in our absence. We would highly recommend this company to anyone and will be using it again in the future. Well done Joy and family thank you very much. David and Susan Fern, Stourbridge

When we left Sooty with you we were anxious because he hadn't been left with anyone but family before.We were so grateful for the introducing stage when we all visited and saw the lovely home enviroment he would be staying in. So off we went on a short break after leaving his food toys and bed. The next morning we text "how is he etc" as we sent our text we received one giving an update he'd slept well was eating and making himself at home in the garden even let you pick him up!!!!!! We were so happy and then really enjoyed our break. He loved playing with Enzo. Thank you Joy we had no problems when he came home In future you will be the first person we will contact to have Sooty he was so happy and content. Gill and Paul Gandy, Rowley Regis

To anyone looking in to using petpawz. I have recently left my two St bernards in the care of joy and family at petpawz to go on holiday to tenerife . I was slightly worried as anyone would be when leaving there animals some where for the first time . No need I had tex messages nearly every day letting me know what they ate what they were doing etc and she put my mind at rest . I knew they were settled when they were eating . When I went to pick them up , well I could see for myself they had had a holiday themselves they were beautifully groomed no weight loss happy and I have booked them in for next year and booked my moms dog in also . Tiffany, Tividale, Oldbury

We were so pleased with the service you provided. Having not left our Lottie before we were quite nervous but were quickly put at ease by joy. Joy text us every day to let us know how lottie was doing. Lottie seemed to settle in really well and enjoyed her time there. We will defo be using this service again if we go away in the future. Thank you for being so welcoming! Carlo & Mandy, Halesowen

Thank you Pet Pawz for looking after our guinea pigs, Peppa and Georgie whilst we were on Holiday. We have never used home boarding before as we have never had small pets so I was unsure what to expect. Pet Pawz offered a friendly professional service. I went to visit the house before i decided to place my pets there. On arrival I was showed all relevant insurance documentation and all relevant paperwork associated with the guinea pigs boarding i was also given forms to complete listing how i wanted my pets to be looked after, feed, cleaned and any other instructions etc. We left our animals for 6 days, I had regular text messages reassuring me that my pets were ok. All instructions were followed by Pet Pawz and the animals were well looked after. I would highly recommend this company to anyone and will use it again myself in the future. Sarah Day, Rowley Regis

We'd just like to thank you for looking after our dog Bilbo whilst we were on holiday for two weeks. This was only the second time we had been on holiday and left our dog with a pet sitter, so we were a little uneasy as he is very precious to us. The first pet sitter we used no longer looks after pets at home, so we looked for hours trying to find somebody else we could trust. We're so glad we found Pet Pawz. We weren't too sure how Bilbo would behave as he can be a bit of a handful at times and wouldn't leave Lucy alone when we first came around to visit. He seemed to settle in just fine and made himself at home judging by the texts you sent and the photos you showed us on our return. Whenever we go on holiday again and are in need of somebody to look after Bilbo, we will have no hesitation in booking your services again. Jo, Halesowen

Thank you Pet Pawz for looking after Sally whilst we attended a family wedding. Sally is an elderly and frail doberman/labradore cross who is very loved. Joy visited her over the weekend we were away and kept us up to date by text after every visit. It was a very professional and caring service which we hope to use again. Jan & Andrew Casserley, Halesowen

I came across PetPawz after I had been let down by the dog sitter I had booked. I was a bit worried about booking as Joy had Lucy and Wolfy my german shepherd dog was not used to other dogs. From the moment we all got together at Joy's my fears were put to rest. Joy and her family are lovely people and Lucy put Wolfy at ease. I'm so glad I found PetPawz! Wolfy had a wonderful stay and Joy didn't mind me texting to see how he was. When we collected him, we had a lovely goody bag given us and We have made a friend in Joy for life. We are still in contact and I know Wolfy will be welcome whenever we need to board him again. Thank you very much Joy and family! Sarah & Roy Adderley, Oldbury

Just like to say a very big thank you to Joy at petz pawz for looking after my british bulldog Molly! At first i was really worried about leaving Molly as bulldogs are very hard to look after and need a lot of care and attention as any bulldog owner will know ! But after a few visits before our 2 week holiday i was totally reassured, Molly loved Joy, her family and Lucy there dog. while we were on holiday Joy kept in constant contact telling us what Molly was up too during her stay which made me feel Molly was safe and being well looked after! Joy is a fantastic lady who is genuinely a animal lover. I would recommend Petz Pawz to everyone and i will defiantly use again! Thank you Joy x Helen Stanley, dudley

Can't thank you enough for looking after Joey, Moey and Charlie while we were on holiday. You provided excellent service not only in the level of care given to our birds, but also in that we were regularly kept informed every few days on how they too were enjoying their holiday. This gave us peace of mind and enabled us to have a worry free holiday knowing that they were in good hands. There is no doubt that we would not hesitate to use you at a future time.. Paul and Donna, Halesowen

Thanks Joy and Steve for looking after Charlie when we went away for a long weekend, Charlie was only four months old and a much loved puppy, we couldn't have asked for a better family to care for him while we were away. After visiting a few times to get Charlie acquainted with the house and Joys own dog Lucy he was able to settle in easily. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pet Pawz to anyone, it is so reassuring to go on holiday knowing that your pet is happy and being well looked after, a regular text message from Joy keeps you up to date on your pets well being. It was good to know that Charlie was sitting on Joys lap watching TV! He even came back with a goodie bag. I'm sure Charlie enjoyed his holiday as much as we did. Many thanks to you both. Pam and Phil, Cradley Heath

Our dogs, Linus and mable stayed with joy and steve for just over two weeks whilst we got married and went on honeymoon. Knowing that the dogs were getting continuous love, affection and exercise whilst we were away was a huge weight of our mind and allowed us to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. Joy also sent us regular updates as to what the dogs had been up to so we knew they were both enjoying themselves. Over the last 6 months we have regularly met with joy and steve to ensure the dogs settled in well and were familiar with their home and got on well with Lucy. We would whole heartedly recommend Pet pawz to all our friends and family and anyone else that is looking for a loving, friendly and welcoming 2nd home for their dogs and we will definitely use pet pawz in the future. Katy, Michael, Linus, and Mable, Halesowen

We usually have family members to feed our cats while we are on holiday, but as we were attending a family wedding abroad we were all out of the country at the same time, so found ourselves stuck for the first time! We found Pet Pawz online and were impressed with the information given on their website, so decided to give them a call. Joy came to meet us and the cats, and discuss what we would need her to do for us while we were away - even offering to feed our fish for us too, which is something we'd forgotten! We were really impressed with the friendly and professional service and it was great to get text messages letting us know everything was OK while we were away. There were even timesheets left for us to see on our return, and a gift for the cats! We will definitley use Pet Pawz again if the need arises and would strongly recommmend them to anyone looking for a friendly and trustworthy service to look after their special friends. Sarah & Sid, Oldbury

We would like to say a huge thank you to Pet Pawz for visiting our rabbit while we were on holiday! We were a little worried about leaving Tigerlily on her own in the house for a week, but as soon as we met Joy and Steve we felt at ease. The pet sitting service is faultless! She was very well looked after, as was the house, and we loved receiving text messages every visit letting us know she was fine - it was very comforting. We returned to a very content little rabbit and it's really nice reading the report cards written during every visit. We will always use Pet Pawz in the future and we would recommend them to anyone! Thanks again. Sarah Cole-Tullett & Matt Tullett, Halesowen

Not enough praise can be given to Pet Pawz for all the help they have provided over the past seven months. We have a very energetic working cocker spaniel called Lola who loves nothing better than going on long walks and having warm and friendly company. Lola has daily walks which she loves and has used Pet Pawz boarding services when we are away at weekends, both are excellent and great value for money. Right from the start we were taken back by how organised and professional the service was from Pet Pawz. We would recommend all services they provide due to the high standards of care that Lola has received. It's not easy leaving the care of your dog in someone elses hands but Pet Pawz provides peace of mind and we are always reassured that Lola is being looked after the way we would do ourselves. If we could rate Pet Pawz it would definitely be a 5 star doggy hotel. We will continue using Pet Pawz in the future and have no doubts about leaving Lola in their care. Claire & Grev Beats, Halesowen

I would like to thank Joy for looking after our pet cat Sox, while we were away on our two weeks holiday. Joy looked after Sox very well and treated him as though he was her own. I could'nt have looked after Sox any better myself. It was reassuring to get texts while we were away to let us know how he was getting on. Thanks. Mr & Mrs Myhill, Halesowen

I don't know where to begin in thanking you for the excellent service petpawz has given us this year! After being let down at the last minute by another pet sitter you were able to step in and board our two greyhounds Skye & Bobby at your lovely home. Not only did you look after them exceptionally well you also made it possible for them to attend our wedding day by escorting them from your home to the venue enabling them to share our special day with us. Joy and Steve offer a service above and beyond any other boarding facility, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter/walker. Skye and Bobby enjoyed their stay at petpawz in July and are looking forward to their next visit in October. Annette & Darren Small, Halesowen

With much searching, it was a pleasure to find such a loving boarding home for my piggie boys, Felix and Freddie. After meeting Joy and her husband I knew I had come to the right place and had no qualms when dropping them off for 2 weeks, whilst I jetted off into the sunset. I liked the fact they were let out for a run in the evenings and they didn't miss out on their cuddles. It was also nice to receive texts to let me know what they were up to. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pet Pawz. Thank you. Anne Hall, Stourbridge

Thank you Joy and Steve, for looking after our tortoise, Timmy whilst we were on holiday. At forty years of age, he is very special, and we needed to be sure he would be well looked after. Initially we rang petpawz to arrange our first visit. After meeting Joy I knew we had found Timmy's ideal holiday home. Joy made sure their garden was secure, as Timmy is a well known escape artist! A futher visit was arranged, and Timmy, complete with house, was taken along as well. He made their garden his own, and by the time we left, had mapped out his own territory! We were able to enjoy our holiday, safe in the knowledge that Timmy was in capable, caring hands. We were updated with texts and on collection were given a resume of his time spent there. I have no hesitation in recommending petpawz. It is a pleasure to have found such a friendly, safe and caring environment in which to board our tortoise. Helen, Cradley Heath, West Midlands

I would like to say a very big thank you to Joy and her husband for such a fantastic job looking after our labrador Honey whilst we were on holiday last week. We knew as soon as we met Joy that this was the perfect choice for us. Her professional yet friendly approach combined with her obvious love of animals made us feel very confident to leave Honey knowing that she would be loved and well cared for. We met several times before we went away and Honey soon made herself at home. I will be pleased to use petpawz again and have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending their service. Thank you again Joy. Debbie Selvey, Oldbury

Our two guinea pigs, Boo and Ruby, stayed at Petpawz while we were on holiday for two weeks in July. From meeting Joy, it was clear she had a great love of animals. She was keen to know what our guinea pigs were like, what they enjoyed doing and what "fresh treats" they enjoyed. Whilst on holiday we received texts letting us know they were okay and when we picked them up we were given a report on their "holiday" at petpawz. The care and attention our guinea pigs received while at petpawz was excellent. We would highly recommend their small boarding service and when we have our next holiday petpawz will be the place we will contact for our two piggies to have their "holiday". Janet Farren, Birmingham

We are absolutely delighted with the service provided by Pet Pawz. Ruby was made to feel part of the family by Joy and her husband. Pet Pawz will always be our first choice as an alternative to Boarding Kennels as it was so much more personal. All our future holidays will now be planned to ensure Pet Pawz can accommodate Ruby as we know we can go on holiday with peace of mind. I would go as far as to say that Ruby actually missed the company of those at Pet Pawz on our return from holiday Mrs Lilley, Halesowen

Petpawz looked after our 2 cats while we were away and I'm really pleased with the way they were cared for. It was very reassuring to get texts, confirming that they were happy and well. A very professional, friendly and caring service, which I will definitely use again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Karen & Steve, Halesowen

I would like to thank Joy and everyone at Pet Pawz, for the superb service they offer and for looking after our 2 Gerbils whilst we enjoyed our 2 week holiday. I couldn't have wished for a nicer environment for them, with every care being taken to look after to them to our requirements. We received regular text messages letting us now how they were doing, and even received a diary of their boarding. I would recommend any pet owner to Pet Pawz and would not hesitate in using them again ! Once again Joy, many thanks for the excellent service !! Tracey Round, Halesowen

It looks like Stan had a fab time, it was lovely to get his little report so that we had an idea of how he spent his weekend. For us it was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy ourselves knowing that Stan was being looked after properly and kept in his usual routine. We could tell that he had had a busy time as he was very tired when he came home but seemed very happy and relaxed. We are also really happy to have found you so that we know that now if we need to go anywhere or perhaps fancy a few days away Stan will be happy and well looked after. Also we would not hesitate to recommend you to others and indeed have already told a couple of our friends about you. Diane & Ash, Halesowen

Just a quick note to say how grateful Richard and myself were when you agreed to take Harvey into your house for day care whilst we were on holiday in Spain. You run an absolutely professional business. You are a very caring family and we did not have any worries about Harvey whilst we enjoyed ourselves in Torremelinos. We will have no hesitation in using your services again. We would recommend you to anyone who cares about their pets and wish you and your family all the very best for the future. See you again in September. Thanks a lot. Richard & Chris Legiewicz, Halesowen

Our nine month old cocker spaniel Freddy has spent a long weekend with petpawz , the care and dedication was second to none . We visited four times before hand to get Freddy used to Joy and her family and lovely old dog Lucy, so when the time came for us to go away, Freddy already felt at home . So we were able to go away without worrying .Whilst away Joy kept us up to date with a text message every day on our return we were given a little diary of what Freddy had been up to . I really cant say how wonderful Joy and family are and needless to say we shall be using them again. All in all a real find !!! Mr & Mrs Allison, Edgbaston

I started using Petpawz after I became ill and was unable to walk Murphy as much as required, they were recommended to us. All I can say about Petpawz is they are absolutely wonderful. Murphy adores Claire who walks him and has a wonderful time on their walks. They are so accommodating and will always try to help and meet any request. I am never worried when Murphy is with them as I know he will be treated as one of their own dogs and be well taken care of. I can not recommend Petpawz enough, they offer a friendly yet professional service. Thank you Petpawz!!!!!! Murphy says thank you as well. Mr & Mrs Wallis, Halesowen

I would like to thank you sincerely for looking after Mishka so well this weekend, this is the first time we have left Mishka overnight and as she is our baby we were worried she was going to be ok, but Petpawz put all worries at ease, communication from you was excellent and it was like "home from home" for Mishka, she got on really well with Lucy having met a few times before Mishka stayed overnight made the transition for boarding with Petpawz alot easier for Mishka, you made her part of your family for the weekend and I was most comfortable leaving her in your very capable hands, infact Mishka wanted to stay longer.. I'm so impressed with the services you provide with Petpawz and the love and affection you showed to Mishka, I have already recommended your services to family and friends and will continue to do so... Thank you so much Petpawz Mishka is looking forward to her next holiday with you..... Mrs Darby, Lye, Stourbridge

Pet Pawz looked after our 2 rabbits for a week when we went abroad skiing in February. They were very accommodating and the bunnies were well looked after, given time to run, and were given plenty of attention by the whole family. We were given regular updates which was really reassuring and even received a picture message! I was very pleased, this is the kind of service every pet owner would like to be able to rely on! I would definitely use their services again whenever I plan a holiday!" Anne & Joe, Wolverhampton

Pet Pawz offer a great friendly and professional service, when our English Pointer puppy arrived we needed help on a weekly adhoc basis to fit in to our busy life style. Being a working couple Pet Pawz fitted into our schedule when we needed them morning or night, walking, feeding and watering Lucy. They have a wealth of knowledge with dogs and they also gave us some great advise being new 1st time dog owners. After our 1st meeting with Pet Pawz where they assessed our home and our needs, we felt sure we had found the right people we could trust in our home & with our new puppy. I continue to use and would not hesitate in recommending pet pawz to anyone looking for support in caring for their pets. Nick Duncan & Kate Griffiths, Oldbury

Thank you Pet Pawz for giving me such a good holiday. I enjoyed seeing everyone and people talking to me. It was nice being with some more animals and Tony & Pauline were very pleased with the way I was treated including getting me out of the cage which I really enjoyed. I hope they go away more often and then I can come and stay with you again that is if you will have me because I really did enjoy myself. From "George" The Parrot Pauline & Tony say a big thanks too and we will recommend you to anyone who has animals that need boarding. Tony & Pauline, Halesowen

This is a big 'thank you' to Pet Pawz for looking after our 11 year old labrador, Jack, whilst we were away for a ten day holiday. I found Pet Pawz to be extremely professional and after the consultation at home prior to the holiday I felt confident and assured that Jack would be left in safe hands whilst we were away. I also received texts from Pet Pawz during the holiday reassuring me that Jack was fine. However, I knew that if there was any problems with Jack Pet Pawz would make sure he got the necessary care. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Pet Paws for their excellent service and will definitley leave our much-loved pet in their capable hands in the future. Thanks again and lots of love from Jack. N. Batsford, Hurst Green, Halesowen

I have been using Pet Pawz for some time now and have been extremely satisfied with the service provided. They are a pleasure to work with and are totally reliable. We keep in contact on a weekly basis, when I let her know the days I need her to walk Ellie. They always leave a report after the walk telling me how Ellie was and what she did during the visit and will always ring me if there is a problem. The main benefit to me is the peace of mind they give me, knowing that when I am at work, Ellie is being looked after by someone who is completely trustworthy. I have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone who wants their dog cared for whilst are at work. Jill French, Halesowen

I would like to thank you for the excellent care given to my two guinea pigs when they recently boarded with Pet Pawz. I was totally reassured they were being well cared for and was able to enjoy my holiday with regular texts and even a photo text from Pet Pawz. On our return we even received a detailed diary, which the children enjoyed reading. I will be using Pet Pawz boarding service for our next holiday. Stephanie Wyatt, Halesowen


I would like to thank you for looking after my cats. You made it so much easier for me and it was the perfect alternative to a cattery as I knew they would be much happier staying in their own home. I had peace of mind knowing they would be well cared for while I was away and I will be using your services again in the near future. Christina S, Halesowen



I would like to thank you for the care you have shown in walking Alfie for me. He has looked forward to your walks and been quite tired when he came home. You have made dog sitting so much easier for me. Thank you. Mrs E, Fairfield Road, Hurst Green
