About us

Hi, my name is Michelle and I own & run Muddy Paws Cornwall.  I offer a professional dog walking, Pet sitting and Puppy/ Dog training service. 

I have recently expanded Muddy Paws and am now joined by Kym,my Mum; Debbie, Kirsty and Meredith. Myself and my team have many years' experience in pet ownership,Dog walking and basic training. We have all worked with animal charities in the past and are all fully insured.


We walk on beaches or country walks, from 30 mins upwards. We only charge for the walking time and none of the travelling costs. We are huge animal lovers and  have all been around animals all our lives so your best friend is in good hands.

Going on holiday?  Then let us look after your pet in our home, where they will be treated like part of the family

Have a new puppy and need some basic training or maybe an older puppy or rescue dog that needs extra training. For more info on my Training page.

Mickey - Miniature Schnauzer 

The Miniature like the Giant Schnauzer originated from Germany in the 19th century and was bred by farmers for hunting vermin and guarding.

Breeders crossed a small standard Schnauzer with a Affenpinscher, a miniature Pinscher and a Poodle to produce this compact dog with a strong, solid frame.

After WWII the breed became popular internationally, particularly in the USA.

The Miniature Schnauzer makes a great family pet as they are playful, protective towards family members and very quick to learn. They can be strong minded so need patient and firm training.

Mickey is always very relaxed when out with the pack and always plays nicely with the others. He does like to wander off on his own occasionally to explore, but always comes back for  tasty treat!  





I would like to introduce Kirsty, who has recently joined the Muddy Paws team. 
She grew up with rescue dogs,is a volunteer dog walker for the cinnamon trust, and has recently decided to give up nursing after 20 years to follow her dream of becoming a professional dog walker. 

Kirtsy has already covered a pet sit for Muddy Paws over the Christmas break. The owners were so impressed with her that they have booked her again for Easter!

So if you are looking for a dog walker in the West Cornwall area or you are coming down on holiday and you want to book your dog in so that you can enjoy the beaches, please contact through our "contact us" page.


We are happy to announce that Kym joined the team in January.She will be covering the Truro - Falmouth area.

Kym is a huge animal lover and has many years’ experience with dogs, working in various kennels and rescue shelters around the uk, including work with The Cinnamon Trust. She also has a canine physiology qualification and comes highly recommended.
