Here at Ribble Valley Paws we have been walking our customers dogs since 2015. We are fully insured, canine first aid trained and years of experience with many different kind of breeds. You can often find us up on the fells, in the woods or down by the rivers finding lots of adventures for your furry friend. We love every dog that comes into our care like our own. 


One on One Walks 1 Hour -  £15

One to One walks are great for dogs that need that extra attention. Within this walk we can help with any behavioral issues, we can practice skills and set a good routine within the walk for your dog. 

These walks can also be great for those dogs that just don't like other dogs being in their faces. 

These walks can be either on the lead or off the lead depending on your dogs recall 


Group Walks  1 Hour - £12

Group walks are great for dog that enjoy the company of others. Here they get to make friends for life, explore new places and smells and even learn good behaviour from each other. Dogs are pack animals and they love being together. 

These walks can be up to four dogs to one dog walker at a time on or off the lead depending on your dogs recall. 

We carefully select dogs for each group to ensure all the dogs will enjoy their time together.


Puppy Visits 30 Minutes - £8 

Puppy Visits are for dogs aged from 2 months - 6 months old.

Visiting the puppy to break up his/her day when you're out at work all day which can include the following (depending on age) 

  • Toilet Breaks 

  • Feeding and fresh water 

  • Playtime 

  • Introducing to their collar and lead 

  • Taking them for short walks -  A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e. 15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc. Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.


We offer many different types of grooms to which will depend on the breed and coat type along with what the owner would like. If you need an advise on grooming please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss the options. 

Here at Ribble Valley Paws we have just opened up a brand new shop in Whalley, Lancashire in January 2020- we were previously based in Waddington, Clitheroe. 

Sophie the business owner has been grooming since 2017 with a Level 3 City and Guilds Diploma in Dog Grooming and Canine First Aid Trained. 

At Ribble Valley Paws we know some dogs may need training to enjoy being groomed and lots of praise, not all dogs will stand perfectly still for an hour whilst being touched on every body part so we aim to make every dog comfortable. If your dog has had previous bad experience with groomers please get in touch and we can talk about different methods to help gain their confidence back. All grooming is one to one and your dogs are never caged. 

We offer 

  • Hand Stripping - wire haired and soft coated breeds 

  • Clipping 

  • Hand Scissoring 

  • De-shed for the double coated breeds

"I can highly recommend Ribble Valley Paws, they have walked my 3 dogs for over a year. It’s great that they get to walk and socialise with other dogs. Sophie and the team are flexible and accommodating so if I need extra walks during the week they will fit us in. And the pictures they take are outstanding, it’s obvious the dogs love their walks with Katie"
