The Paw Seasons
NEED TO KNOW
Leave your dog and go away safe in the knowledge that he will have every bit as good a time on his holiday as you will on yours with The Paw Seasons. Based in the south COTSWOLD, and just under 2-hour’s drive from Central London, The Paw Seasons takes a small number of carefully selected dogs at a time. They live in the farmhouse with Jenny, her partner Tim Stokes, and, when she's home from university, her daughter Sarah. The dogs have the full run of (most) of the house, sleep where they like, and best of all, always have company on hand, both 4-legged and 2-legged.
In place of kennels, there's a 300-year old farmhouse with a huge, fenced paddock at the bottom of the garden for the dogs to go in and out of as they please. Instead of miserable old concrete runs, the dogs are treated to as many tours of the 12-acre field, sniffs in the hedgerows, and runs along the ancient Cotswold Way footpaths as they could possibly wish for. And when they tire of that way of life, they hop in the car for an outing to Brean Sands - miles of safe, sandy beach on the North Somerset coast.
Because all dogs are different, they decided that rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach, they needed to provide additional care for very energetic and older dogs. So they offer a few alternatives that give the same level of personal care, comfort and tailor-made exercise. The bigger, bouncier breeds will love the wide open spaces of rural WILTSHIRE provided by Melissa Powell who accommodates up to 5 gundogs (or similar) in her stunning, period house in a sleepy village on the Badminton Estate. In neighbouring S. GLOUCESTERSHIRE, Myra Chappell takes 2 or 3 gentler, quieter dogs for hugs on the sofa and strolls around the beautiful Hawkesbury Common. Wherever they stay, the dogs are able to freely wander around the house, gardens and grounds of all properties, and enjoy wonderful twice-daily walks.
The Paw Seasons has no fixed opening times and, best of all, operates a personalised shuttle service to your home or office on the day and at the time you need.
