Why Choose Us?


We are a dedicated husband and wife team with a real love for all animals.  We are an independent  local small business, which takes pride in offering premium customised services.


Whatever breed, shape or size; dogs, cats, rabbits, tortoises, guinea-pigs, hamsters, mice, fish, reptiles, chickens, we cater for them all, big or small.

The health and welfare of all the animals we look after are our top priority.


We ensure all of our pets are safe and secure with a high standard of hygiene, security within our home and gardens.

Our detached cottage is welcoming, cosy and comfortable with visiting dogs living in our home with us with their own separate beds and sleeping areas.


We offer a consultation and getting to know you visit in your home. If home boarding with us we will also invite you to visit our home. We will meet with you and your pets and design a service that meets your needs.


For dog home boarding we arrange a time for familiarisation with any other visiting dogs booked in.  We only have up to three dogs with us at any one time.  We will ask you to provide us with records of current vaccinations completed at least four weeks before the first date of boarding as well as flea and worming treatments. 


For dog walking, we are ideally situated on the outskirts of The Bathhurst Estate in Cirencester, with access to miles of open countryside with free running away from traffic and busy parks. Please note we will ask for your written permission to free run them off lead. We do not offer pack walks or group walks, we focus on the well being of your dog, minimising stress and inappropriate greetings.


For cat feed and fuss visits we will give your pets time to get to 

know us and enjoy company and attention.


For rabbits we have two large hutches with access to  a run from within the hutch.  We have a small guinea pig hutch which has an inside ramp to a grass pen.  For other smallies we will visit you in their home.


Our All Paws Cirencester licence number is C/20/00698/ANIMAL in the name of Mrs Julie Taylor. 2023 is the 12th consecutive year we have held a licence with Cotswold District Council for the home boarding of dogs. We are delighted to announce another three year renewal and an award of 5 stars. This reflects the highest standards in care, operational and professional standards, knowledge and safety. This rating is commendable with 100% of all mandatory measurements passed and meets additional superior requirements including risk and welfare. Many small boarding businesses continue to operate under the radar and do not apply for a boarding licence. We set ourselves apart by understanding the complexities of boarding and keeping up to date with both council and government led regulations. We have full written and audited procedures, records and registers which are examined in regular and unannounced inspections.

We abide by the highest standards in animal care and welfare working to the legislation set out in The Animal Welfare Regulations 2018 and the professional standards and principles of the Nationwide Associates of Registered Pet Sitters in the UK .


We also have appropriate C.R.B certification for visiting in your homes. We are fully insured for pet sitting, animal boarding and dog walking and for carrying our cat and small animal visits.



With a lifetime of experience of pet ownership and pet care, a distinction in small animal health and welfare, and first aid trained, you can be assured your pets will be looked after with the utmost care and attention.


If you are new to us we will provide you with references and insurance information so you can be assured of our professionalism when leaving your pets in our care.
