We will pick up your dog from your home/work place and take him or her for upto a hour walk in one of several secure forest areas away from busy roads. We never walk more than 5 dogs at a time, so we are in complete control of all dogs and can ensure their safety throughout the walks.

During the group walks we encourage the dogs to play and socialise with each other and always bring along a selection of fun and engaging toys for them to play with. We are happy to take dogs for walks on or off the lead, depending on the owner's preference and the dogs recall. After each walk, we will return your dog, towel dried if necessary, and replace any food or water, if requested.

Please note:

*We are only able to take dogs on group walks who are friendly and well socialised with other dogs. We are also unable to take bitches in season. Individual walks are available as an alternative.

*Walks maybe shortened to protect your dogs health and welbeing, an example of this would be extreme heat or a bad storm where a dog becomes frightened or nervous.


Whether you're just popping out for the evening or jetting off on a 2 week holiday, sometimes you have no choice but to leave your cute canine at home alone.

Happy Paws home dog boarding service means when your dogs can’t come with you, they can stay in a home from home environment with a garden to run around in and lots of walks and fun.

This is a great alternative to kennels and your dog becomes like a member of a new family with all the comforts of home. Your dog will be happy and secure and get all the exercise and love and attention they’re used to.

​We are contactable 24/7 via phone while you are away and are also happy to send you updates via text or email so you know how much fun your four legged family member is having.


Work and social commitments mean that we have to leave our beloved pooches at home, sometimes for long periods of time. This can lead not only to boredom for your dog but also separation anxiety, barking and possibly destructive behaviour.

Happy Paws doggy daycare service is here to help. We are friendly and experienced pet carers and will provide stimulating and loving care for your dog during the day as well as lively park and forest walks where they can socialise with other dogs.

With forest and parkland close to our base in Harlow there are any number of interesting walks nearby and the locations are regularly changed to provide variety for your dog.

What’s included in our doggy daycare service?

• Pick up and drop off from the clients home
• At least one 1 hour walk in local forest and parkland.
• Feed if required
• Reinforcement of any training currently being undertaken

Doggy daycare prices:

Prices for doggy daycare start at £25.00 This is generally for 10am to 4pm, however if you need to extend these hours we would be happy to tailor our service to your needs.


Getting a new puppy is always an exciting experience, but it does bring on a big responsibility. Puppies require a lot of time and attention from their new owner, but often commitments, such as work, get in the way. We can help by visiting your puppy during the day to feed them, let them out in the garden or simply give them some love and attention. We will also throw in some free basic obedience training to continue the learning process in your absence.


Our cat feeding and pet sitting service means that rather than taking your cat to a cattery we visit your cat in their own home. This is most suitable for cats and small animals as cats in particular hate leaving their own territory, so cat sitting means they’re not disrupted and are much happier and relaxed on your return.

We will go through your cat / small animal care regime and ensure we stick to their normal routine as closely as possible ensuring they have the right food and any special diet that may be difficult for catteries to provide, administer medication and can liaise with your own vet if necessary.

At £8 per day for up to 2 cats (single visit), this often works out cheaper option. For further information, please email or call us.

We recommend one or two visits per day for cats, but we’ve found that most cats are very happy with a single visit unless medication requires additional attention. But for that extra bit of TLC we can make extra visits and are completely flexible to your requirements. If you feed your cats twice a day but don’t think they need two visits, then we are happy to set your timer for an evening feed all within the price


Enjoy peace of mind by having one of our professional house sitters care for your home and your pets while you’re away.
Your pets will be happier in their own environment and you can relax knowing your home is safe and secure.
If you are going away for any length of time, it is statistically much safer to leave your home occupied, rather than empty. Many homes left empty for over 30 days are not insured, and the practical consideration of upkeep means that an empty home can look blatantly empty after little time, therefore attracting burglars.  But with a house sitter, your house looks occupied.
And if you have pets, your animals can be cared for at home, rather than having to go to the trouble and stress of taking them to kennels or catteries. Pets are generally much happier in their home surroundings and are less prone to risk of infections such as kennel cough.
There is also the issue of keeping your garden maintained and a Happy Paws carer can ensure your cherished plants don’t wither away.
So for security and animal care, using a  trusted house sitter to keep your home maintained and pets cared for is a secure, convenient and efficient way of providing peace of mind.



Amimal welfare has always been a passion of mine. Since I was young I’ve always loved animals — both learning about and taking care of them. I began Happy Paws Essex in 2014 and now have the opportunity to share my love of animals with my clients and there pets, all over Harlow and the surrounding areas. I'm a qualified pet nutritionist so I'm always happy to give advice and suggestions on getting your loved furry family member healthy on the inside too. I hope I get the chance to meet your lovely pet/s soon.


“My Harvey is part of my family, and I just hate leaving him in a kennel where he won’t receive any personal attention while I’m away. With Happy Paws & Stephen, I know he is getting his daily dose of belly rubs, cuddles, and lots of fun walks.”

Emma - Harlow

"Stephen is great with shadow, this is the first time we have left him with someone new and Stephen was great!! Great knowledge and we were reassured he is was in good hands!! We will defiantly be using Stephens service again. THANK YOU!!!"

Grace - Harlow

"Both my dogs love Stephen , a little too much for my liking!
Stephen really loves dogs and it's plain to see that he enjoys his job.
Having three dogs of his own , he's very experienced in dog handling and also is very up to date on dog health and nutrition.
I wouldn't go anywhere else , and my dogs wouldn't let me either !!"

Sue - North Weald

"Our first time of leaving our furry friend with someone other than family, Stephen was more than happy for us to go round to see him and his dogs before we left our dog with him, Stephen was happy to get a text from me asking how Dexter was, I would recommend Stephen for any dog boarding or walking, his own dogs are lovely and friendly and happy to share their home with other dogs"
