Walkapaws is a unique establishment which provides a number of services for your dog.

Peace of mind


Walkapaws was created with the vision to provide total peace of mind for the dog owner and a very happy and social place for your furry babies to enjoy themselves.

The owner, Lydia, had spent a number of years in Australia and returned to Ireland to find nowhere that offered a boarding, or care environment, where her dogs would have company and exercise all day. She knew what was offered in other countries and was familiar with the new day care facilities being implemented around the world. She therefore wanted to introduce these concepts into N. Ireland and give local people and their pets the same great pet care options.

After extensive research about what dog lovers, REALLY wanted for their pets, Walkapaws was created. People wanted to know that their pets are in safe and happy surroundings, pampered by humans and allowed to make friends with other dogs.


They also wanted to make sure they were provided with quality food, medicines were properly administered, vets on call, and overall be surrounded by staff that had as much passion for their beloved pet as they did themselves.

Humble Beginings


The new concept in boarding and daycare facilities was then developed in a Business Plan, the layout designed on paper, and built according to client desires and wish lists.

From humble beginnings and 2 staff members, Walkapaws has become one of the largest boarding kennels and doggy daycare centres in Ireland, with multiple staff that includes many family members.

Our aim is to ensure we know every dogs particular needs and ensure that all dogs leaves us wanting to return to their human friends and furry mates where they play all day and sleep soundly every night…
