Claire's team caters for pups from when they're fully vaccinated.
This is an absolute fantastic chance for your puppy to be immersed in new experiences and learn from their well socialised peers.
This helps them to become well-adjusted, confident members of the local doggy community.
Many pooches stay with Claire as they love her so much.
Lisa and her team cater for adult/juvenile dogs and those graduating from puppy club.
Dogs are grouped into like-minded teams so they can have an action-packed walk with Lisa or a steady calmer walk with Angie.
Great for socialising your dog, we have a huge array of personalities so dogs can join in the play at base camp or chill in our log cabin and have a cuddle.
Home from home boarding is available for any of our regular day-care dogs.
Our guests join in the day-to-day activities with the day care dogs and are welcomed into our homes for their evenings and weekends.
We ensure that they have plenty of outings, so you can rest assured your dog is having a lovely time whilst you are away.
Go Out Paws, Tile Hill Coventry
Butt Lane, Allesley Coventry
Our dog walks are carefully planned to avoid traffic, livestock and hazards. All dogs are equipped with a Go Out Paws tag. Our basecamps are double gated and have secure fencing. All equipment is regularly checked for defects. We are trained in K9 first aid and carry first aid kits in case any dogs gets injured whilst in our care. We are mindful of taking dogs that are reactive or aggressive and always monitor dogs before they join the pack. We keep your dogs info private.
Our vans are fully and professionally crated and have air conditioning. Professional crating is really important as in the event of a rear end shunt it strengthens the vehicle structure and the crates have internal escape doors. We always switch to winter tyres in the cold months so that in the event of snow and ice we can keep your dog safe.
We are fully insured. Our insurance covers injury to dogs in our care due to negligence, key and alarm insurance and extensive public liability insurance.
Claire, Lisa & Angie who hold keys to properties are all fully CRB checked.
We are fully licenced and inspected by Coventry City Council and have been awarded a 5 Star licence which is the highest award available. All dog boarders and any business where the dogs spend time at the care givers premises must by law be licenced. Licenced premises must maintain extremely high standards of care in line with strict animal welfare guidelines. Licenced premises are subject to regular spot checks and inspections by the animal welfare officers employed by local councils.
We take puppies from as soon as they are fully vaccinated. This is normally around 12 weeks old. Pups who join us from such a young age do fantastically well and turn into very confident sociable dogs.
We have access to a lovely secure woodland and paddock which we use in the event of staff illness or holiday. Check out the video on Youtube.
We cover South West Coventry, Kenilworth and Balsall Common.
In line with our insurance and licence guidelines we walk up to 6 dogs per walker.
We vary the walks to keep the dogs engaged with new smells. Walks take place in Allesley, Meridan, Kenilworth, Leek Wooton, Cryfield Grange, Berkswell & Hampton in Arden.
Length of walks vary based on your dog’s age and energy levels. Claire’s puppy club walks are much shorter in distance but not in time. This gives the puppies lots of sniffing and playing time and enables them to regulate their own exercise. Lisa’s walks are fast-paced and around 3 miles targeted at high energy dogs, whilst Angie’s walks are slightly shorter, aimed at the dogs which may not need to walk as far but like to spend time sniffing and playing.
Go Out Paws Neutering Policy
Deciding when to neuter a male dog can be very difficult as there are many different views and opinions especially on the social media sites.
While we support neutering as standard for dogs that regularly interact with other dogs we don’t have a policy stating at which age a dog must be neutered. The point at which a dog attending day-care needs to be neutered depends on a multitude of thing, we always make recommendations based on the individual dog and the behaviours that they are demonstrating.
At around 6 – 8 months we generally start to see a change in the behaviour of male dogs as the testosterone levels rise and their true personality get swamped with hormones. We generally start to see humping, guarding, fixation on other dogs (normally the weakest in the pack), dominance behaviour, higher stress levels, aggressive play and a regression in recall on our walks. This behaviour really upsets the unity and harmony of the pack and is not fair on the other dogs or the dog himself.
These changes in behaviour often first become evident in a day-care situation where an intact dog can become highly aroused. It may come as a shock to the owner when we first mention these behaviours as they may not be experiencing them at home where the dog is not surrounded by other dogs and activity. However owners normally start to experience these behaviours as the dogs hormone levels increase.
We except unneutered dogs if they are NOT showing the following behaviours which include excessive humping, dominance, guarding, fixating, aggression, poor recall and they are NOT causing disharmony in the group or getting unwanted attention from other dogs .
Once your pup is around 6 months we keep a closer eye on them and log any behaviours listed above and follow the procedure below.
Stage 1 – The dog is starting to show occasional examples of the behaviours listed above we let you know that now may be the time to speak to your vet about neutering.
Stage 2 – The dog is frequently showing behaviours listed above and is causing disharmony and disruption in the pack but it is still manageable we may recommended that where possible your dog just comes on our walks where there are more distractions but is dropped home without attending social time until he is neutered.
Stage 3 – The dog is consistently showing the behaviours listed above and posing a risk to themselves and other dogs the dog will no longer be able to attend Go Out Paws.
Dogs can progress from stage 1 to 3 very quickly so it’s a good Idea for the owner to take action before the negative behaviours become learned and entrenched. It is important that the owner lets the vet know that the dog attends a social day-care and makes the vet aware of the behaviours the unneutered dog is exhibiting.
A good vet should take the behaviours into account and not work on an arbitrary age. Otherwise you may need to find a vet who will understand the implications of your dog not being able to socialise and negative behaviours becoming entrenched, which may out way the benefits of waiting till the dog is a certain age.
With female dogs it is generally recommended they are spayed after their first season or once they are at least 6 months old. Un-spayed dogs are fine to attend but owners will need to keep them at home during their seasons which last around 2 to 3 weeks. We do not charge for the first season but subsequent absences through seasons will be charged at 50%.
