Services & Prices


Walking For Paws Mapperley is an insured business, DBS certified and trained in canine first aid so you can relax knowing that your best friend is in safe and experienced hands.

Whether you have a busy work schedule, a vacation planned, or you are not currently able to provide your pet with the exercise and the companionship they need during the day then we are here to lend a helping hand. I understand that your pets are part of your family and I give them the same loving care and attention that I provide for my own pets.

Walking For Paws is an independent business, founded in October 2019 by Lily, who provides a reliable, trustworthy, and nurturing service using positive reinforcement training.

Email us on [email protected] or call/WhatsApp Lily on 07542007925 to discuss your requirements and to arrange a FREE meet and greet consultation appointment to get to know you and your pooches requirements.

Hello, my name is Lily.

Since a young age I have had an interest in dogs, collecting various dog breed books, taking part in junior dog shows along with dog agility competitions. I grew up with two Staffordshire Bull terriers along with other companions such as horses, rabbits & guinea pigs, I also helped out on a family members farm who rescues ex-battery hens, sheep and even a ‘not so’ micro pig. I have taken a canine first aid course and currently am raising my own Shiba Inu puppy teaching her with positive reinforcement training.

I started dog walking for other dog walkers in 2018 to understand the duties & responsibility’s involved and then took the plunge and set up my own dog walking and pet sitting services in 2019 and that is where Walking For Paws began.

I currently cover areas from a 5 mile radius from Mapperley such as Sherwood, Sneinton, Gedling, Carlton, Woodthorpe & Arnold (Other areas are covered but may incur additional charges).Whether it’s walking your dog or feeding your cat I always provide a nurturing and safe approach full of fun & cuddles and treat all pets as though they were one of my own.  I am DBS Checked, insured & trained in canine first aid so you can rest assured knowing that your pets are in safe and capable hands.

Puppy / elderly dog pop-in visits.

Work commitments no longer have to stop you from being able to have a puppy as part of your family. This service is for puppies and also elderly dogs needing toilet visits more frequently and to have some company & a bit of fun in the garden whilst you’re at work. Also a useful service if your pet requires medication administering throughout the day (written consent required for this service)



£7.50 per visit

Dog walking.

We collect your pooch from your home and either walk them to a local nearby park or safely and securely transport them to a walk site. We ensure businesses are cleared up and plenty of treats are rewarded on our walks for good behaviour, once the walk is complete, we return them home, leave fresh water and make sure all paws are dried. We are happy to feed them/ leave treats if you require also upon leaving.

Due to insurance purposes all dogs must have an identification tag, be micro-chipped & vaccinations up to date. (Please ensure paperwork is available at consultation) Dogs will only be walked off the lead with your written consent.

If you specifically require your pooch to have my sole attention I also offer solo walks. These are ideal for high energy dogs and elderly dogs not interested in socialising anymore. (Requested Guaranteed Solo walks incur an additional charge)



1hour – £12

30 minutes – £9.50

I am flexible to your needs and shorter walks are available upon request.

Additional dogs from the same household are charged half price

Dog sitting.

Dog sitting is a great alternative to kennels, as we understand that a kennel environment is not often best suited to all our furry friends. We offer dog sitting within your home where the pet is most comfortable. We charge an extra £5 per day for more than one dog from within the same household. This includes walks, comfort breaks, companionship, feeding, playtime, etc.

Please understand while we are dog sitting for your pooch during the weekdays, we will be going out to do our lunchtime walks/ solo dog clients that cannot be walked with other dogs so please bear this in mind.



Per 24 hours – £30

Cats & small animal care.

Walking For Paws Mapperley can cater for pets of all sizes. We’re happy to pop in and look after your Cat, Guinea Pig or Rabbit, whether to feed them while you’re away at work or on a trip away.

We offer a home visiting service where we will visit once or twice a day to feed, change water, clean litter trays, administer medication (with written consent), play & give cuddles and keep your house safe whilst your away by drawing curtains, bringing in the post, turning lights on & off & even watering your plants. We can visit as many times as you require. We never post keys on the last visit for security reasons encase you are delayed we can therefore continue the service until you arrive home.

Photos/videos will be sent to you via whatsapp on each visit to ensure peace of mind whilst you’re away.

Please contact us with your requirements so we can tailor to you and your pets needs.
