Whether you're looking for someone to walk your dog, or you are going away and need to find a loving place for your beloved pet to stay, or they simply need grooming, look no further than our family business. We are Craig and Karen, the proud owners of Paws & Claws based in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire. We strive to provide a quality service in dog walking, in-home boarding or grooming ensuring that your animal is well-looked after.

Paws and Claws

We are a family run business which started in early 2014 when Karen gained her grooming qualifications. Our business naturally expanded and continues to do so in grooming, walking and in-home boarding.

Knaresborough Based

Our home in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire provides a wonderful base for our services, with an ample-sized, fully enclosed garden where your dog has freedom to play where our parlour is located.

Knaresborough and surrounding areas provides wonderful walks and settings for your pooches to enjoy there stay with us.

We walk our own dogs twice a day and yours will join us in getting the exercise they need. Fuss and attention is the norm in our house, with no dog going unloved.

Furthering Our Qualifications

We are City & Guilds qualified (level 3) in Dog Grooming as well as having many other certificates in dog/health related topics.

We continue to progress our knowledge with ongoing courses, seminar events to keep upto date with changing industry standards and legislations.
