24PAWS’ original service of social breaks remains a favourite (1 or 2 social breaks a day in either a small group or one-to-one, see below for details).

Morning and afternoon outings break up a dog’s day, while leaving time for rest. Pick up and return are included in this service.

Each social break that Jacqui puts together takes a dog’s personality, play and lifestyle into account.

Small group option:
Well-matched dogs join in (usually 3 or 4 max.). Dogs learn a great deal from each other, communicate constantly with their surroundings, and burn energy (or dawdle if that’s their pace). The cost of this service is typically no more than a day-care day rate.

One-to-one option:
For older/larger/less mobile dogs, or those being trained for specific work roles, this may be just the ticket. As a one-to-one service, the breaks can be designed for a dog’s particular needs (socialisation, play, going outside, habit-training, giving medication or food, etc). The cost of this service is individually considered and reduces with greater frequency of booking.


Some of our received feedback:

“Jacqui and Scottie are amazing! My partner and I are in and out for work and finding the time to walk the dogs can be very unpredictable (and stressful). Jacqui takes all that stress away and we feel so confident knowing they are in the best hands.”
Dina & Mark, Wellington

“Jacqui, from all the options available, we chose 24PAWS because of your dog psychology qualification and training. You have the same outlook that we have with regard a happy, healthy, engaged dog. With our boy it really shows.”
Sharon, Kapiti

“If you’re looking for something personalised, for your dog’s needs, try Jacqui at 24PAWS.”

“Jacqui, I love the way you work with the dogs, not forcing them but bringing them along in the process.”
Jennifer, Auckland


Just FYI, Jacqui is known for moving proverbial mountains to be able to say yes to requests, and to deliver. Initial consultation is free of charge and obligation. Following this, booking payments are upfront, keeping admin. time and costs down, contributing to great service and pricing 🙂

Please note too that if Jacqui and Scottie are unable to work with a dog for any reason (capacity or other), they will do their best to refer you.
