My dogs were taken great care of while we were on holiday. One of my dogs is clearly not the most trusting and wasnt willing to interact. But it was handled professionally and kindly without issue. Came home to a nice tidy garden/kitchen and two chilled dogs. Nothing had seemed too much trouble. Definately will use again!!! Thankyou :) More...

I contacted Jane after discovering my two year old patterdale terrier was terrible with babies. Tib would jump, bark, lunge and whine whenever he was around babies. As we were pregnant we were worried about him and our babies safety and desperate to do everything we could to prepare him for the upcoming changes. At five months pregnant Jane came to our home and gave us the training techniques and games needed to help Tib prepare. We were armed with the games, given handouts and Jane was on call to guide us should we have any questions or need any extra support. That extra bit of support off Jane was incredibly helpful as naturally different situations occurred which we were not prepared for. For eg: a friend brought a crawling baby around which sent Tib into a frenzy. I contacted Jane in a panic but she calmly pointed out Tib needed to be DMT’d to a baby been on the floor. After doing the training games as much as we could (4-5 x a week) in the run up to our daughter been born were happy to say that after 1 week of her been home Tib is doing fantastic! We’re still doing the training with Tib BUT ONLY to desensitise him to the different items of hers we bring into the home. We are no longer worried, he is doing so well he even sits on the sofa with us all (baby included) . We are so thankful to Jane, we really were worried as Tibs behaviour was so bad we did not know if he would be safe to be around a baby. I can’t recommend Paws Positive Dog Training enough More...

Was concerned my 10 month nervous Romanian rescue dog wouldn’t cope with a puppy class but the recall class in a field that Jane told me about was perfect! It was 2 hours and it gave Nala time to settle and she behaved perfectly! The trainers were great! Informative, funny, relaxed and respectful! Would highly recommend. I’ve booked another class!

I 1,000,000% recommend Paws 4 a Break! They have taken such good care of my old dog, Harry. We had tried every kennel in the area and Harry would come back, hurt, stressed and unhappy so I knew this time round he needed something special and special is what we found. My old boy will not be going any else now, they have taken such great care of him and I know Harry was happy because his tail hasn’t stopped wagging. For the first time in a long time I’m not worried about leaving him with these fabulous people! I recommend to everyone that they leave their precious fur babies here for peace of mind knowing they are getting spoiled themselves x x thank you once again for taking such good care of my old boy x x x More...

Martin and Jane have been brilliant. They accommodated all 3 of our pooches including the giant Ted for the weekend. It's been so reassuring having all the pictures on Facebook knowing he was happy and not anxious, they even did a bit of lead work with Gracie whilst out and about. although Ted was happy to be home it was a greeting as if we had been away for a day not the weekend which is brill! Thank you for having them all! I would highly recomend and will be in touch soon to book in again ! also well done on your recent inspection! More...

Monty and Kaiser have loved walking with Martyn. Clearly they enjoy being with him and they’ve been well looked after and exercised well. It’s good we’ve been able to keep up with how they’ve been through the fb posts and see they’re enjoying their group walks. Thanks again More...

I messaged Paws 4 a break on Friday and Martyn came to meet my little Red on Friday night. Now if anyone knew red he’s very particular on whom he does near but he got along with Martyn as soon as he came through the door. They played and Martyn didn’t hold back in rolling on the floor with Red. Red has had his first walk today and Martyn rang me to reassure me Red was okay. I couldn’t ask for someone better, Red seemed tired and happy when I got home. Martyn made me feel like Red is in safe hands. I can’t wait to see the pictures. I would recommend to anyone in need of doggy services. More...

Jane and Martyn had my boy for nearly 5 weeks over Christmas and new year. I got daily pictures and videos he went from not always being friendly with other dogs to playing and running around with them it was fantastic watching his progress. We have them take both our dogs for regular walks and daycare. When Martyn comes they don’t give us a second glance happy to say they both love him to bits. Wish we’d found them years ago ��� More...

Jane has been a very positive influence on our lovely but hyper active border terrier Gyp. Within minutes she showed us simple techniques to help reduce his anxiety levels and ways of feeding him to keep him occupied throughout the day. Everyone has commented on the changes. We can’t thank her enough. More...

I contacted Jane at Paws 4 a Break after my sprocker puppy started showing signs of stress with children, bikes, buggies and other dogs. He would bark aggressively, cry, drag himself to try and get off lead. He is also a barker in the house too. Jane not only came to my house and spent time showing me training games to help George she is also available for any hints and tips or help. I've contacted her many times to ask advice if George is being particularly mischievous that day. I always get a super quick response with encouragement and help. George is doing so well , with Janes help he will continue to grow more and confident over the coming months Jane , thank you so much and i would 100% recommend every time ❤️ X More...

Martin and Jane are fabulous! They had Bobby for us whilst we went on holiday. I have never left him before and thought I would be very anxious but I was relaxed knowing he was in such lovely hands. They clearly love what they do and gave Bobby the love and affection he has at home. They were very thorough asking us all about his routines and little individual qwerks. The pics and videos were fantastic and showed him having lots of fun. If your dog is like your baby these are the people for you!! More...

I have just been away for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have left my 2 little cavachons Olly and Max with anybody!! ! I was very worried about finding the right people to look after them as they are literally my babies. Martyn came to our house to do a meet and greet with us and went through everything so thoroughly! The boys also went for a day visit and we met Jane who is a lovely lady too and has done lots of training with dogs. They followed our routine to a tee, even letting my boys sleep on their bed with them so they had their home comforts � Olly has a food allergy and we have to be really careful with what he eats and they followed his feeding habits excellently. Max can be very nervous with other people and dogs but he soon settled in and made himself at home! They regularly put videos and photos on Facebook so we could see them playing and having a good time which made me relaxed on holiday knowing they were being so well cared for! I would definitely use Martyn and Jane again, they are lovely couple who have a natural love of dogs and would highly recommend them if you are looking for someone to look after your beloved babies ��� More...

I can't thank Martin and Jane enough for taking care of my dogs while on holiday, for along time we didn't take holidays after having a bad experience with a kennels but I found Martin and it's the best thing I've done, we now go on holiday worry free knowing that he loves my dogs and they return the love 10 fold, they are exercised and played with and are happy and that's all I wanted.

Savara has been going to see Martyn and Jane on Fridays for quite a while but recently had a long 12 day stay with them while we went abroad. It was our first time away from her so we were all very anxious but I was so happy to see the updates and pictures and see that she was being loved and cared for as one of their own. My little boy loved to find out what she was up to and she has come on leaps and bounds with being off leash which was a big worry of mine. I will definitely recommend paws 4 a break to all with fur babies.. Thankyou both so so much :) xxx More...

I was so nervous about leaving my gorgeous boy for the first time, but having collected Troy this evening after his first stay, I couldn't be happier with how well he was looked after. He is happy, healthy and has enjoyed lovely walks, play times and adventures daily during his holiday and is now fast asleep and snoring on the sofa. It is clear that Martin and Jane love and know dogs and look after them as if they were their own. Nothing is too much trouble and I would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you very much xx More...

its the first time Toby has stayed at Paws 4 a break and even though it was only for two days as a taster, he couldn`t have been in more capable hands. he had a wonderful time and is a very happy baby. Toby has a few problems he`s allergic to gluten and wheat plus he has injections every month for several allergies, however Martyn and Jane discussed his diet and his requirements......it was like a home from home. I have no worries when Toby stays with them in April for 9 days. cannot recommend them highly enough. More...

We took a rescue dog in November last year, which gave us a bit of a problem as we had a holiday booked for two weeks at the end of February. Not keen on kennels and have always used pet sitters in the past. After trawling the Internet for weeks we found Paws 4 a Break and reading the reviews thought this is for us. Met Jane and Martyn and straight away new that our pets (we also have a cat) would be well looked after. We were not disappointed on our return both pets were fine, relaxed and had obviously been well cared for. It was also nice to find the house equally well cared for, clean and tidy. Our dog J took to Martyn and visa a versa as did Charlie our cat they obviously got on like a house on fire and it’s plain Martyn loves animals and spoils them. Martyn also walked our daughter’s dog once a day (she was away with us) and from the photos you can see was equally at home with him. If you are looking for someone to look after your precious pet while you are away then look no further than Paws 4 a Break I can highly recommend them, you will have piece of mind knowing you pet is in good hands.
