About us

Paws for Walks VansWe are a family run business operating in the Darlington, Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe areas of South Durham and in the Chorley area of Lancashire. Established in 2005 by Janice Halford, partner Gary and Daughter Hayley are now both key figures in the success of Paws for Walks®.

Offering a comprehensive pet care package to cover all your pet needs, we pride ourselves in providing the best possible care for your pets and, wherever possible, tailoring that care to suit.

We are fully insured and our team of helpers are carefully handpicked, are all loyal, trustworthy and above all compassionate to ensure your pet is cared for to the highest of standards.

Both Janice and Hayley are fully trained in the subject of dog psychology and are happy to give advice on any behaviour problems your canine companion may have. We feel this enhances the work we do and helps us provide a more comprehensive service.  If you would like to find out more about us, please choose from the following:
