South London's Social Enterprise Dog Day Care

Hi, we are Jodie and Grace - the founders of Paws and Pause dog day care. Paws & Pause is offering an unique and new approach to dog day care with smaller numbers of dogs to people ratio and a more attentive dog centred approach.  As a Social Enterprise our primary concern is the welfare of our dogs rather than a focus on profit. This allows us to ensure we never compromise and deliver the highest quality of dog care. We are the only doggy day care that allows dog owners to choose a socially responsible brand and feel good about dog day care. Paws & Pause is a brand that prides itself on providing a loving, caring environment for dogs, peace of mind for the ethical owner and be supportive of its local community.


Our purpose designed centre is based near Loughborough Junction, conveniently located for Brixton, Herne Hill, Camberwell, Dulwich, Denmark Hill and the surrounding areas. 







Our Social Mission
