London's only socially responsible
Dog Day Care Centre
Who We Are
We’re Paws & Pause
South London’s Social Enterprise doggy daycare.
Paws & Pause is a socially conscious doggy daycare centre. That means we combine expert-levels of dog care with a social mission, providing training opportunities to people in long-term unemployment.
Our purpose-designed centres, located in South London, are a place for every pup to come and play. We’re experienced in caring for dogs of all types – from labs to lurchers and everything in between – and provide our guests with a fun-packed timetable, including plenty of time for walks, games and the occasional nap.
The wellbeing of your dog is always our first priority – and our large care team ensures that your faithful friend always comes home happy at the end of the day.

Peace of Mind
We’re deeply committed to providing a safe, loving space for your dog. Our staff have qualifications in Canine Care & Behaviour and Dog First Aid. So, you can rest assured that your faithful friend is in safe hands.
We keep your dog stimulated with a long run in the park opposite, plenty of time for cuddles, enrichment games and naps in between. Our centre has been purposely designed as a place for play, so your pup has a chance to socialise and do doggy things with their friends!
We’re experienced in caring for every type of dog: whether you’re a terrier, retriever, spaniel or a hound, there’s a space with your name on it at Paws & Pause. Plus, our high human-to-dog ratio ensures every one of our guests gets plenty of love, fun and attention.
Care from canine experts
We’re combining canine care with a social purpose. We provide animal-based employment opportunities for people recovering from mental health issues and addiction. This means you can feel good about your choice of daycare, knowing we’re looking after your pup and your community.

What do our Customers say?
We love P&P. Our pup has been coming here since he was tiny and now attends regularly once a week. We love the service and we love being kept up to date through the day on what they’re up to. The staff not only love dogs but are trained and knowledgeable in what they do. Would 100% recommend.
