How We Got Started

The name 'Early Paws' is a play on the phrase 'Early Doors' as it started as a small groom room based in a local pub! Naomi, the director, then sold the pub and moved here to this beautiful 90 acre private land to expand. 

We set up Early Paws in 2016 to provide an incredible experience for animals and owners. From small beginnings, we have expanded each year to provide a whole range of services and experiences, making us the best one-stop-shop for your dog. 


Early Paws is fully insured, licensed by Cheshire West and Chester council, and has trained knowledgeable staff on site to help you with anything you may require.

We have many facilities on site designed to give owners peace of mind knowing their four-legged companions are in safe, loving hands. So if your dog needs a holiday, come visit us!

We are incredibly proud to also be an award winning kennels after receiving the Cheshire's Best Pet Boarding Facility 2023 by Business Awards UK. The award is selected by a private and public judging panel and is composed of external industry experts. They follow a stringent scoring process which has been carefully designed to ensure entries are judged fairly and consistently within each category. In April 2023, their public judges panel was also launched.

Entries are scored on a number of areas but the key criteria is how different we are from others in our sector. They also check examples/reviews/testimonials/case studies. We also recently won the SME Business Elite Awards for Best Boarding Kennels Cheshire 2024 which follows the same style of judging panel. Woohoo!

If you have any questions at all, we will be happy to help and we can't wait to meet you and your dogs!
