Meet the Pawlkies team
Who are we?
Pawlkies is a family run Pet Care business in Blandford Forum, offering a proffesional, yet personal Pet Care service to our customers. We are animal lovers through and through and have always had pets in our lives.
The business was started in 2014 myself (Ben), My fiancee (Laura) and my Daughter (Saffron age 15 at the time) following a successful, yet stressful 20 year corporate career. We talked and planned as a family for 4 years about starting our venture and in August 2014, we finally decided enough was enough and it was time to set our 100% focus and dedication to starting our Pet care business.
We certainly made the right choice, working with animals everyday is such a joy, regardless of the weather, getting outside and running around with our friends couldn't make us happier, especially knowing that we are helping you all whilst doing so :)
We currently have an amazing community of over 300 customers which is growing all the time and we proud to say that we know everyone of them personally. It is an absolute pleasure to be around people that love their animals as much as you all do and; we are so honoured you have placed your confidence and trust in Pawlkies.
Your pets safety is our top priority....
Helping you be busy!
From first hand experience, we really do understand how busy life gets and know it can be difficult to dedicate the time you would like to, to your loved one. Pawlkies is here to help you do just that!
This is primarily why we decided to start our Petcare business in Blandford Forum. The love, friendship, satisfaction and fun, owners experience from having a dog is a wonderful thing, one, however that often is never realised beacuse their busy lifes get in the way of possibly owning a dog.
Pawlkies is here to help you regardless of how busy you are, we want to help you manage a balanced lifesyle and ensure that if you choose to welcome a dog into your family, you know they will be given the love, attention and exercise that they need, whilst you keep busy......oh, and of course, we've kept our prices low to help your budget too.
Helping you in older age
Pawlkies also understand that as you get older it can sometimes become difficult to give your pooch the exercise that they need, which we understand can be frustrating for you both.
Why choose Pawlkies?
We hope you can see that we are truly in love with all animals and our aim is simply to help you make sure your pets have all the love, attention, exercise and lots of cuddles they deserve when they are with us.
We're very proud to have been delivering professional pet care services to our Blandford community since 2014 and plan to continue doing so for our wonderful community for many many years to come.
