Our Story

Pet sitter

Paws Claws and More was founded in 2012 by Wayne Buckland (seen here on the right-hand side of the picture). Wayne has always worked with animals and his love for them inspired him to start the company providing dog walking, cat sitting and in-home boarding services.

In the beginning, Paws Claws and More was a one-man band providing a reliable quality service to its very first customers. Wayne’s initial success in providing great services rapidly grew the company’s reputation and led to an ever increasing demand from local pet owners to have their loved ones also cared for by Paws Claws and More.

In 2016, Phil (on the left-hand site of the picture) took over Paws Claws and More and the company now has 12 team members, including Wayne, making us big enough to be flexible to ever changing customer requirements but small enough to continue to provide a personalized service on which the company reputation was built on.

Phil has been a resident of the Marsh for the last 7 years, a committed animal lover (3 cats, 3 dogs in case you were wondering).


We have very simple Goals:

  • To look after the pets in our care as if they were our own
  • For our customers to have peace of mind that their loved ones are receiving the best possible care
  • To continually improve the 3 foundations the company has been built on:
    • Quality of care
    • Reliability
    • Trustworthiness
