James and Liz Langton Way originally set up Friendly Paws™ in 1999, when they reached the decision never to send their own dogs to kennels. Realising that many other pet owners probably felt the same, they launched their personal and experienced house and pet sitting service in south and east Kent.
Theirs was the first private home in Thanet to be legally licensed to board animals in their own home.
It has since developed into a highly successful business with plenty of repeat and word-of-mouth new business. James is a retired police officer and Liz is a journalist. Neither will see 55 again – but that is as much as you need to know on that subject!
They will look after your pets either in their own home in Broadstairs or will come and care for pets at your home. While specialising in dogs, over the years Liz and James have looked after a wide variety of other animals from horses and donkeys to sheep as well as parrots and caged rats, chickens and cats (in their own home).
The wide variety of dogs that have been in their care over the years is amazing. These include Leonburgers, Irish Wolfhounds, Great Danes, Labradors, Spaniels, Retrievers, Miniature Dachshunds, Collies, Staffies, GSDs, Mastiffs and Wiemeraners as well as a number of Heinz 57s.
They also look after a working guide dog for a blind client. He comes for his holidays and pinches every shoe not nailed down!!! - but he doesn't do it at home. Dogs - who would have 'em!
When dogs are taken into Liz and James' own home, they are always treated as part of the family. Where Liz and James go, so do the dogs. As they live next door to a pub, you can guess where the dogs might go after they've had a walk! Living right on the coast, the dogs can enjoy the myriad of beaches in Thanet and are also given plenty of TLC at all times. They are even allowed on the bed, if the owners don't mind!
