London's only socially responsible
Dog Daycare Centre
Who We Are
We are Grace and Jodie, the Founders of Paws & Pause,
South London’s Social Enterprise Doggy Daycare
Paws & Pause is not just a Dog Daycare, it's a Social Enterprise too. This means that we not only use our expert-level knowledge to care for and nurture your dogs, we also use it to care for and nurture your community.
Our purpose-designed Centres, located in Brixton and Peckham, are a place for every pup to come and play, make friends, learn and of course... nap! All while doing the good deed of helping people in recovery from mental ill health back into employment.
With our high human to dog ratio of 1:5 and regular packs on regular days, our team get to work closely with your pup each week to find out all the little things they love and ensure that the daycare schedule is tailored with those things in mind!
The wellbeing of your dog is always our first priority – and our close-knit, knowledgeable team are dedicated to making sure your pup comes home happy!

Peace of Mind
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. Our high human-to-dog ratio ensures every one of our guests gets plenty of love, fun and attention. Plus, with everything we need on site to keep your pup exercised and happy, we eliminate the risks that come with London's public parks.
From playtime to naptime and everything in between, our timetable is formulated so that your pup will get the most out of daycare. Our schedule provides regular exercise, enrichment and rest time, but we keep it flexible enough to tailor it to the pack's and pup's needs each day!
We’re deeply committed to providing a safe, nurturing space for your dog. Our staff have qualifications in Canine Care & Behaviour, Dog Training and Dog First Aid. So, you can rest assured that your faithful friend is in safe hands.

"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."
