About 24PAWS

“Jacqui, we initially chose you for the dog psychology certification and training you have done. You have the same outlook that we have with regard a happy, healthy, engaged dog and it shows.”

Whether for dog socialisation, confidence-building, minding or just a change of scene, 24PAWS offers flexibility as a trusted, well-being focused service.

Jacqui and canine co-director Scottie started 24PAWS offering several standard services (see below) but often end up tailoring things to suit clients’ needs. For a no-obligation chat please feel free to pop your details into the Contact form and we’ll be in touch (usually within 1/2 a business day). You are also welcome to text your name and number to 027 299 4388 for a callback. We look forward to hearing from you.

For dogs:

  • One-to-one social break sessions:
    A social break is a great way to minimise the boredom of a dog’s day, with emphasis on your dog’s engagement and well-being.
    Key benefits: As a one-to-one service, the break can be designed for your dog’s particular needs (socialisation, play, going outside, habit-training. giving medication or food, etc). Pricing varies as this is a customised service; $24 per visit is the base price.
  • House and dog minding:
    Prefer to have your dog(s) looked after at home while you are away? Let us know the dates and we’ll come back to you with availability.
    Key benefits: Leaving and returning are simple matters for you and your dog(s). Their routine carries on as normal in their familiar environment and they’ll be hugged, looked after and exercised through to your return. Pricing varies as this is a customised service.

For people:

Talking while Walking the Dog (TWD):
Need a sounding board for your business or life thoughts, ideas, frustrations and challenges? TWD is based on the ethos “you have the answers for you, here’s the space”. Developed by Jacqui, TWD is part of 24PAWS wider work on effectiveness and well-being.
Key benefits: You’ll get to hear what your thoughts sound like when you say them out loud and you can then talk them through. The purposeful act of walking the dog reduces stress and formality, and is a perfect reminder to keep it real and keep it focused. You will end the walk more energised, motivated and clear. Offered with sliding scale pricing depending on your circumstances and the travel time required. Please make contact to discuss.

Our wider work is inspired by research and opportunities to contribute to well-being and public policy. We are Associate Members of The International Companion Animal Network (ICAN) which brings together organisations who use, teach and recommend only force-free methods in working with animals; to set and maintain high standards within what is currently an unregulated industry; and to actively collaborate between organisations to promote our common ethos and goals.
