I have just been asked who walks my dog Fynn when I am not able and I had no hesitation in saying Stephen and Michelle at Paws2Dors. They have walked Fynn from when he was a year old and I returned to work. He is now 7 and I have retired but he still goes out with them at least once a week because he loves them and his doggy pals so much. He comes home tired and happy and I have a very contented dog (I’m sure if he could talk he would say that he would like to go out with them more because he has such fun). 

Nothing is too much trouble for Stephen and Michelle and I woudn’t want to let anyone else take Fynn out.

Michelle and Stephen have been walking our chocolate lab Murphy since we moved to the north east in 2013 - we came across Paws 2 Doors when we lived in Hexham - we've since moved to Stocksfield and after a poor experience with another dog walker - Michelle agreed to take Murphy back on.  We were delighted - but not as delighted as Murph!!  
Murph's a bit of an old boy now and has had some excellent Bowen Therapy with Michelle for early signs of arthritis.  She takes enormous care of him and he really seems to benefit, as well as drooling with pleasure throughout!
A fab couple and thoroughly recommend all that they both do.

Michelle and Stephen have been amazing with our dog Charlie. Michelle used to do puppy visits when we first got him until he was big enough to join in the group walks. Both Michelle and Stephen are very loved by Charlie and they are truly dedicated to all of the pets they look after. Their flexibility, dedication and kind nature means that I always know Charlie is well looked after and exhausted by all the fun he has on his walks. I know this because of how excited he is when he sees the Paws to Doors vans! We love to see the photos and videos on facebook, not only of Charlie but of all of his friends. I am just pleased we found them.

Paws to doors is brilliant, Michelle looked after my babies like they were her own , sent me pictures and videos while I was away so I knew they were happy and I got to see them which made me so happy .. Great service would highly recommend it.

Michelle has been looking after my Cats for nearly 5yrs. It's a great service to be able to rely on when we go away, we get regular updates and pictures, which puts our minds at ease that they are doing ok when we're not home. Thank you !

Our very lively spaniel Buddy loves his walks with Michelle and Stephen. He gets so excited and now he just has to hear her voice on a Facebook video and he is at the door wagging his tail !! We know he is so well looked after with walks, treats and lots of attention.

Thanks for all you do, from me and the hounds x

Lola's loving her visits from Michelle!

Michelle and Stephen have provided a fantastic and extremely reliable service for our spaniel Katie - she is so excited when she is collected for a walk with the other dogs. Michelle has also been a great source of advice as she has looked after Katie from when she was a small puppy. I have had no hesitation in recommending Paws to Doors to anyone else as Katie is clearly very happy to go on long walks with them and is so well cared for - thank you for a great service!!

Again, many thanks Michelle and Steve. Rio was delivered back to us minutes before the funeral car brought us back home after my Mum's Service. No need for embarrassment Michelle! You were so obliging to take him away again whilst we all settled ourselves down! Happy New Year, Rio will be delighted to see you again!

I don't trust many people with my dogs but I trust Michelle. The dogs love her, I've seen the way they greet her and they are all ecstatic to see her! It's nice to come home from work to tired, happy dogs.
Simone Silver Path said on Nov 24, 2013 1:02 PM
This is a fantastic service, Michelle and her husband are so animal centred and really care about the dogs they look after. They always keep an eye out for any problems or health issues that my two spaniels, Sinbad and Sadie might have and report back to me. I cannot recommend this service highly enough, lovely people, good walks, completely trustworthy and reliable. A big thank you from Sinbad and Sadie who love you and from me.

Michelle at paws2 doors offers a very friendly, reliable and flexible dog walking service. It allowed me peace of mind knowing that my dog was being taken care of and enjoying herself out walking with michelle. Poppy certainly agrees.

Harry has stayed with Michelle on many occasions both for day care, walks and holidays all of which he has thoroughly enjoyed. Michelle has always been accomodating when asked at short notice and when Harry has been injured thus ensuring we can leave him in a home from home where he feels safe and secure. When we meet Michelle occasionallyon our walks he is always excited and happy to see her. It has been great to know that he is in such capable hands and that he receives the same loving care whilst away from home. I have recommended Michelle and her family to numerous others whilst walking and have no doubt that they too should they choose to leave their pets will have a very positive experience too. Harry is looking forward to his next stay already!

I only wish our dog Jess could speak, so that she could tell you what a difference Michelle has made to her (and our) life and tell you how much she adores her!! Jess is an active rescue dog who until almost 3yrs ago would try to attack all dogs who dared cross our path during our walks each day. We had tried "dog training" courses at great expense, but nothing seemed to help. This meant we were forced to only go for walks where we were sure we would not meet anyone or any dogs- not what we had hoped for when getting a dog. We work long hours and needed a reliable and flexible person to walk Jess during the days we are both at work. I was certain Jess would need to have individual walks and never imagined she would socialise with other dogs. Michelle was very understanding and spent time gradually getting to know Jess, and catering to her needs. Jess has now enjoyed almost 3 yrs of group walks, playing with other dogs, swimming and simply exhausting herself twice a week with Paws to Doors!! Poor Jess almost explodes with excitement when she sees the van arriving in our drive. She is just such a different dog from a few years ago. We are so grateful to Michelle and her husband for their help in making Jess such a happy dog. Paws to Doors also provides an excellent cat feeding service that we would also highly recommend, no more stressful visits to the cattery! All in all a wonderful, reliable, doggy life changing and flexible service that we could not do without - thank you very much!!!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Michelle. She took Maisie, our black lab, when she was about 5 months old for a weekend, and now has her regularly when we need to go away. As an overprotective first time dog owner, I quickly realised that Michelle is someone we trust to look after Maisie! I actually think that sometimes Maisie doesn't want to leave her house as she has such great walks with other dogs, and enjoys the company of Michelle's other dogs!! If you are looking for someone to look after your dog or pup, I would look no further.

We felt that our Spanish Water Dog 'Rio' would have difficulty coping with kennels as he had a problem being left alone anyway, and was a bit wary of strangers. Knowing that we were going away, we booked Michele for a couple of walks with him then left him with her for a long week-end. I'm afraid that she didn't get much sleep the first night! But he settled very quickly, Michele and her husband were very patient with him, and now he cannot wait to leap into the van for mega walks or happy holidays. We have every confidence in Michele and Steve, Rio certainly does, and we very much appreciate their cheerfulness and willingness to 'go the extra mile'

Our family just can't praise Michelle and Stephen enough - I have returned to work this year having been at home with the kids and our beautiful Labrador Retriever Rosie for five years. Other than my Mother in Law, nobody has been trusted with looking after our woof and I was nervous about somebody else coming into our home and taking Rosie Posie out. I can honestly say that the very moment Michelle came to visit, any worries I had were dismissed out of hand! Apart from being so obviously professional and conscientious about her work, it is just unbelievably obvious how much she loves and cares for our pets! It comes naturally to both her and Stephen - they love their work and are as barking about the dogs as the dogs are about them! They love them and treat them just like their own and from the very first walk, our Rosie has been happy and excited to hear the key in the lock! It's a lovely touch that Michelle and Stephen send pics of the dogs on their walks to pet owners - it's nice to see them having fun with the other dogs! The service they offer is flawless and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a caring, professional pet care service. They've even offered us advice and support when we talked to them about getting a second dog - they know so much about keeping dogs happy and Rosie has made the transition seamlessly. Best pet care service ever!!!

I met Michelle quite accidently shortly after getting my little tri cavalier millie, while she was out walking her lovely dogs! We got chatting like you do and To cut a long story very short Michelle has had millie several times now for a holiday with her and her family, including her own 4 gorgeous cavaliers! !!! Millie absolutely LOVES her - and I wouldn't trust her with anyone else outside my family! We can completely relax when we're away and Michelle sends us regular updates as well as pics and videos that sometimes make us laugh hard!!!! We recently got ourselves another little cav poppy who will be joining millie with Michelle and the gang when we have our next holiday! I couldn't recommend Michelle more- shes helped us at quite short notice too - and tbh I feel like shes a friend now! The only thing I worry about- is whether my little cavs want to come home lol xxxx lindsay!

I felt completely relaxed about leaving my dog, Dita, with Paws to Doors when I had to be away for the day on business. Dita had a great time and it's great to know that I can leave her without any worries. Highly recommended.
Julie Lawlor said on Jun 3, 2013 9:57 AM
Michelle and her husband have been fab - we're new to the north east with new jobs etc. so finding someone as caring & utterly reliable as Michelle has been a massive help. Our choc lab - Murphy, has a couple of walks a week and has gone to Michelle's for his "holidays" for a week. He went beserk with joy when he saw her van the other day & ran out to sit beside it while Michelle & I had a natter - perfect! Julie
Lesley Shield said on Apr 30, 2013 11:49 AM
My boys took to Michelle immediately and the young one had a wonderful time socialising with other dogs all day! The older two enjoyed a few hours' peace every day without being bounced on by a young one. And the house was immaculately clean and tidy when I got home - and the Tesco delivery had been put away, too! A great service!
Amy Towler said on Sep 1, 2012 1:09 PM
Thanks for taking such good care of dexter! It made it so much easier to relax while we were away knowing he was in such good hands!! Will be recommending your services to all my pooch owning friends xxx
Andrew & Pauline said on Aug 20, 2012 7:10 PM
Michelle looked after our cat while we were away. The service provided was very helpful and whilst the cat can't tell us, we have no doubt that he was happier than if we had used kennels and we were certainly happier with him at home. Thanks Michelle.
Jonathon Caisly said on Aug 13, 2012 10:34 PM
Back from holiday yesterday. Had a great time and the pets are in good form. Thanks, Jonathan
Nick and Trish said on Aug 13, 2012 9:35 PM
It was great to be able to go away on holiday feeling comfortable that Bonnie was going to be well looked after, and be accepted as one of the family. I would recommend Michelle to anyone. PS: Bon sends her love to her new friend Harry the Lurcher

Michelle has been absolutely amazing with our dog Alfie. I have recently been off work due to knee problems and now have to have a knee replacement, this has totally stopped me in my tracks and I am now unable to walk with Alfie which I really loved to do. Without the wonderful support from Michelle I don't know what we would have done,Michelle is always there when I need her and Alfie has even had a sleepover at her house! When Michelle brings Alfie home he often turns and wants to go home with her and I know he always looks forward to her coming to pick him up. Michelle has an exceptional way with animals and the love she gives Alfie makes us so happy. There are not enough words to express how much we have appreciated her time,patience and care for my little dog and how it has eased what has been a difficult time for me. Thank you to someone special who always has a smile on her face and nothing is ever any bother to her, Alfie always ends up fast asleep for hours after coming home sometimes a bit muddy but always content! Michelle ' Your the best'!!! Thank you so much Hazel and Kirk x

As a first time dog owner, Michelle's had more trouble dealing with my neuroses than she's had dealing with my seven month old pup, Scoob! Having Michelle there has given me such peace of mind whilst I'm at work and she is always on hand to offer advice and reassurance, even out of hours. Scoob loves her and her daughter Nat, so much so, sometimes I suspect he'd rather be at their house than mine! Michelle regularly sends me pics and videos whilst Scoob's in 'doggy daycare', which I bore all my colleagues with like a proud parent. Scoob has gone from a very nervous pup to a playful, confident little dog. He's also great round other dogs now having learned good doggy manners. Michelle is entirely trustworthy - she even switches my hot water off when I forget! She has her own key and comes and picks Scoob up in the morning, rain or shine, and off he goes to have a wonderful day with his doggy pals on various forest walks. By the time I get home he's totally worn out, which is an absolute bonus! Michelle obviously loves what she does and is very committed to the dogs. She takes time to work with each one depending on their needs. As you can gather, I can't recommend Paws to Doors enough. Thanks for eveything Michelle, Heidi x
