Autumn update - My story

Hi, my name is Maisie.

I moved to Winscombe in the Summer of 2018. Because I spent lots of my childhood in Shipham visiting my Grandparents, I have yearned to get back to my roots. I feel happiest when outdoors and this area has always felt like home.

I have lived in Bristol for most of my life, but I knew I would be back to where I belong at some point. I was in a dead-end job, lacking drive, or inspiration in what I was doing.

It dawned on me one evening when I got back home at 9pm after a 2-hour bus ride that I needed a complete change. Up until then it had not occurred to me that I could turn my love of the outdoors and dogs into a career. So

when my family said they were moving back down to Somerset it seemed like the perfect time to start my new journey.

After months of garden renovation, endless paperwork to attain the Boarding License from the council and two years of preparation 2020 was meant to be the year of officially opening Muddy Paws.

And then Covid happened. But I would like to turn what has been one of the toughest years into a positive.

As I had many days through lock down to think, it made me realise even more how much I love this job and how it will be such a rewarding feeling when everything starts getting back to normal. So here I am, a country girl at heart - letting you all know about me and how I got here.

I love animals and always have done. This is not a job for me; it is a privilege to be able to spend time in the country with your pets.

I am fully Licensed by North Somerset Council for dog boarding with a 4-star rating. Certificate can be seen at Muddy Paw's property. I’m also insured, DBS checked, and Pet first aid trained.

Adventure filled days in the Countryside. What to expect from Muddy Paws. I offer Dog walking, Day Care and Boarding.

Muddy Paws offers a loving and caring environment for your dog whilst you are away. Set in two-acres, it is the perfect location for your dogs. Relaxed, comfortable and stress free.

And for that home from home experience your dogs can cosy up by the fire and sleep restfully knowing they are safe and cared for.
