The K9 Capers Co. and St Mawes Paws

The St Mawes Dog Walker - dog walking with bells on



Hello!  My name is Emma, and with my husband and our 2 mud loving bundles of fur Dougie and Merry, I run The K9 Capers Co. (aka St Mawes Paws) – fully Council licensed & insured, Doggy Day Care, Dog Walking, and Doggy Holidays in our home in St Mawes.

We know how tricky it can be to balance a busy life – much as we’d like to be able to juggle, it’s just impossible to be in 2 places at once; truly understanding what an important part of the family dogs are, we decided to start our own professional Dog Walking Service.

The K9 Capers Co. is fully insured and is Licensed for Doggy Day Care and Home Boarding by Cornwall Council.  I am trained in K9 First Aid and CPR, and I have been DBS checked for my clients’ peace of mind.

Whether your K9 companion needs regular daily Doggy Day Care, some weekly playtime, there’s just a frantic day coming up or you’re looking for a home from home for your doggy’s holiday, we’re here to help and just a call or a message away.

​I look forward to hearing from you and hope to meet you and your K9 (and feline!) companion(s) soon!

Whether your dog needs a regular walk or you’ve got a hectic day coming up, your K9 companion can join in the fun of group walks which take us to dog friendly beaches, woodland & countryside for our K9 Capers.

Our Group Walks to the beach or local livestock-free fields are an hour long and give plenty of opportunity for off-lead fun, exercise and socialisation.

We collect our K9 clients in our air conditioned VW Transporter Woof-Wagon – fitted with bespoke comfortable doggy-pods where they travel in style!  Dogs are collected during the ½ hour before their walk and dropped back home with towel dried paws and tums during the ½ hour afterwards.

Please be assured that dogs will only be let off lead to run with your express permission – if your K9 companion doesn’t have the best recall or is happier walked on-lead then that’s what we’ll do.

Photographs and videos of our K9 capers are posted on our social media after each walk – and for those ‘pawrents’ not on Facebook and Instagram,  photos and videos are sent by WhatsApp.


£11 / hour Group Walk

Available Mon-Fri

Doggy holidays and adhoc day care are available to our regular dog walking clients.

We love cats just as much as we love dogs and are pleased to offer twice daily visits to feed, fuss & care for your feline friend whilst you are away – allowing them to stay in the calm, stress-free comfort of their own home territory rather than being left in the unfamiliar surroundings of a cattery.

If you are considering leaving your cat at home during your next trip away, please drop us an email or give us a call & we will be pleased to pop to meet you all to discuss your requirements & how we can help make your cat’s stay at home just purrfect!

Visits cost £20 / day for up to 2 cats & 2 visits (in St Mawes, with one visit morning & evening) and typically include:

– Letting out / letting in

– Cuddles, fuss, play & attention

– Feeding & refreshing water

– Brushing/combing if your cat enjoys being groomed

– Administering any required medication

– Cleaning litter tray daily / as required

Regular updates whilst you’re away:

As with our doggy holiday services, our feline clients’ families are kept up to date whilst they are away with messages and photographs sent by WhatsApp, text or email to suit – leaving you happy & assured that your cat is having a relaxed time at home in your absence.

We are fully insured key holders and DBS checked for our clients’ peace of mind.
