ABOUT POOCH PAWS
Pooch Paws was first established as a broader company offering a number of services which included dog walking, dog sitting, ambulance service as well as training. From these early days valuable knowledge was gained into varying breeds. When Katey relocated from Essex to Norfolk the only part of the business to carry on was the training. At this time Katey had gained the knowledge and qualifications to carry out behaviour programs.
At Pooch Paws we believe our clients needs are of the utmost importance and are committed to meeting those needs.
