Reptile Boarding

Did you know we board reptiles? All pets love Paws, so when you go on holiday, send your V.I.Pet to us and they will be cared for like our own pets


tortoiseAt Paws we offer reptile  boarding all year round. Even on days we are shut, someone is on-hand to cater for our animals and yours too.

We have a number of enclosures your pet can stay in, either on the shop floor or out the way of the “limelight” if you prefer. For any pets boarded on the shop floor, they will have an “I’m not for sale, i’m on holiday” sign put by them and our premises is constantly monitored by CCTV, so you can be sure they will be safe.


All pets are fed on their existing diet, so if it is something we do not regularly stock, please bring some with you.

We want your V.I.Pets to feel at home. All pets are handled, health-checked and given attention each day, by our dedicated staff members. If you have a bonded pair of the same animal, these will be housed together to ensure they feel safe and secure.

Tip: Depending on the reptile, we will need to set up your V.I.Pet’s vivarium up to a week before arrival, to ensure the temperature and humidity is correct. Please bear this is mind when booking.

Prices vary dependent on animal and is charged per night of your pet’s stay, with bonded animals receiving a discount.

Our main request is to board Bearded Dragons and our rates per night are as follows:

bearded dragon on log


Single Bearded Dragon – £4.50

Pair of bonded Bearded Dragons – £5.50





We have had requests to board other animals, such as invertebrates, including cockroaches, African Land Snails and Millipedes. This is possible, as long as we have the appropriate enclosure, or in the case of small animals, if they are brought into store in their enclosure.



Please call 01600 715367 to discuss your needs and the pricing of your pet’s boarding. A deposit is required at time of booking and you will be asked to fill in a form on arrival with your details and the needs of your pet.


Please note, we will always try and accommodate your pet, but at busy holiday times of the year we require plenty of notice.
