I’m writing for a few reasons. The first is to congratulate you on your great pet shop and the friendly and helpful people who helped us. We ended up with a 36cm Hurtta raincoat which has been bril. While we were in Keswick a few people stopped us to ask where we had got it from. When I asked them if they knew Podgy Paws they did and were full of praise for the staff and the shop. So, thank you. I also wanted to say how impressed I am with your website. Nice and clear and informative with good pictures etc. Thanks again.
Hi, Just wanted to send you some pictures of my dogs wearing your Ezy Dog Products whilst we were on holiday in the Lakes for your gallery. We had a lovely time and you were so welcoming to Maggie and Mo it made their holiday extra special. We will be visiting again.

Kyle and Arthurs favourite Keswick shop, they just love all the good things in here. Their big highlight is when Pete delivers their food to their door, hows that for service with a smile ? :-}

This is Millie on her first visit to the Lake District last year and she will be back on holiday in a week with her little sister. Both looking forward to visiting Podgy Paws! 🙂
I was there again today! We were walking past, so I did my cutest puppy dog ears and eyebrow waggle and Papa told Mama I needed another chewy plait thing! I’ve got Papa so well trained! Voof! Teddi X

Hi we had a lovely visit to your shop a couple weeks ago, and got talking about borders, love your little one in the back, x
Ear waggled my way to another toy today from Podgy Paws! Between humans buying trousers and human food shopping in Booths, I find Podgy Paws is very well placed!
We were in Keswick last week after a long drive from Sussex and apart from the odd shower and one overnight deluge the weather was great, much more sun than down South,. Jess (Collie) and Button (Cocker Spaniel) both love Podgy Paws for the beef jerky, Jess got a new lead and button a new Harness. I just got the bill. Lovely Shop and lovely Dog Friendly Town.
Well Suggs, I could tell by the look on your face, that you were as sad as I was at our parting on Friday. I’m now back in Germany. Will miss you terribly. Don’t worry though, I will be back in November. Might even bring Mama And Papa with me, if they behave! You really are a very handsome fella! Voof ;o) Teddi X
Thanks for all the help you gave us when we visited your shop on the 26th July. We purchased for Oscar our Vizsla , a Hunter harness & collar which is really nice quality, he walks lovely in his new gear. Thanks for the help with sizes & thanks for letting us try the harness outdoors with a little walk up & down the street to make sure it was ok . See you again next time we visit.
Me, my partner and Freddie the German shorthaired pointer went into Podgy Paws for the first time 2 days ago. We wanted a lifejacket for him and were given really helpful advice and he was fitted to the correct sized jacket for his swimming lesson today. I thought I’d post a few pictures to show everybody how it looks and fits and I would highly recommend this product to others. Fred was an ok swimmer but with his jacket he swam out in Crummock water for miles. It has given him confidence and just wanted to thank Suggs for all her help. This is a fantastic pet shop and fantastically mad doggie people that run it. I will be going back as soon as I pop back into Keswick x x
My slaves wanted me to pass on their heartfelt thanks for ur assistance in the purchase of a canny collar. They say their arms now ache less and that walking me is now so much more pleasurable. Personally they should be grateful that a magnificent dog like myself allows them to serve me!
Thank you so much for the brilliant competition, I called in this morning and claimed my prize chuffed to bits well smart, thanks again.
Sue Amble and Jack.

I’m posting this to thank the nice lady in the shop, who helpfully showed me to the bird food this morning. Despite the fact she must have spent a lot of time and energy putting it where it couldn’t be missed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bryan would like to say thanks to Podgy Paws for his new toasty jacket 🙂 He now matches Fern and Fiz (different colours of course) Going to try and get a picture of all three but its catching up with those pesky spaniels xx
Fantastic fitting for coat and harness today – very dog friendly :0) thank you
I know it was a nearly 5 months ago but Neville says thank you for his Booties (he couldn’t have continued to do Haystacks and Catbells without them)
Here’s a pic of our two gorgeous Great Danes Purdy and George in their new winter coats fitted by those lovely humans at Podgy Paws
My lovely Lucy an 8 month old miniature poodle cross is looking forward to visiting your shop when staying in Troutbeck on her first holiday in March. We think it’s a great idea to give details of dog friendly pubs and attractions.
Looking forward to paying the shop a visit when were on hols in June! We love your shop and so do our doggies!
we are getting another rescue dog after we get back from a trip to the lakes in May and I have now been told we need to visit Keswick. Apparently we need a new harness, a new lead and a bunch of other stuff! Colour is now being considered..
Guess who Kyle gets his Gravy Bones from ? The friendliest pet shop and they’re right here in Keswick!
Kimmi modelling her prize on Low Fell. Kindly donated by Podgy Paws and Ezy Dog through the Cumbria Fell Fest – ‘Dogs on Fells’ photograph competition. Thank you 🙂
Brilliant shop! Went in the other day and the lady there was more than happy to help, spent time making sure i got the right things i needed and happy to say Mia hasnt chewed through her Kong toy yet! and is now thoroughly enjoying her knuckle bone!!
Me and Rosie love the new harnesses we got today! Much better than the contraption Mum tried to put on my nose! And the treats are tasty, thanks Suggs
The new harnesses from Podgy Paws came in handy for Dad going up Latrigg when I was getting too fussy with my fans. Cheers, Suggs!
I emptied our collection tin today for Lakeland Trailhound Welfare. I am pleased to say there was £32.48 which will go towards getting retired racing trailhounds neutered, vacc’d and microchipped before going into their new homes. Thanks Podgy Paws!

Thought you might like to see a picture of Henry from Friday – he took the new boots you fitted him with around the Coledale Horseshoe! He made short work of it too. Thanks!
What a super pet shop - visited when we were on holiday in Keswick.
Bought a lead which we loved - but had a slight problem over time with the elasticity.
Such friendly people - don’t think I’ve ever known such efficient and first class service.
Thank you - totally recommend your shop and look forward to visiting you again in May 😄
lovely staff and treats galore for the Nelsonator... which he helped himself to! if you're about to wander and need more kit, there a mass of choice, if your pooch has been good all day, treat them to goodies at excellent prices 🙂 #dogswelcome (ps they also do stuff for other little fur babies and feathered friends. Thanks for putting up with Nelson #foreverhome.
I (and more importantly, my dog, Lexi) love Podgy Paws! we cant walk past the shop without popping in for a sausage wrapped in bacon.
the majority of Lexi's wardrobe has been bought from this store: harnesses, leads, cooling jackets, collars.....
The staff obviously love thier job and will go the extra mile to help you.
Just totally nuts about dogs. It’s lovely To go into a shop where dogs are more than welcome, and of course the staff love them too so you do not feel in the way. Of course in the dogs eyes it is a sweetie shop 😂😂🤣
Great shop for all things animal. Always call in for my dog treats and great for presents at Christmas time for all our family pets x
Excellent customer service and extremely knowledgeable staff. We go in every time we come up to the lakes. Our puppy Vizsla needed a coat (he gets very cold with the slightest drop of temperature). A member of staff tried a few different coats on him to find the best fit and found us the perfect coat (for now), in the cheaper range so that we weren't spending a lot on something that will probably only last a couple of months. It's definitely one of my favourite shops in Keswick. ����
Hi we visited your shop today to buy new harnesses for our two doggies, the lady who served us was so lovely & helpful. Thank you so much. ����
We would like to thank you for your kindness and patience in finding some boots for our greyhound who has corns. It is so nice to find a shop that keeps boots in stock It has made such a difference to our walks Thank you and hope to visit your wonderful shop again soon
The best pet shop EVER! We’ve always bought coats, collars, harnesses, etc., from Podgy Paws when we’ve come to the Lakes on holiday. When our dog had an emergency operation three days before our holiday we thought our chances of getting out an about were over. However, we were able to rent ‘Douggie the Buggy’ and have been able to enjoy our holiday and get some good walking in!! It’s been fabulous off-road and round the shops. The owner Chris was beyond helpful sorting this out for us. It literally saved our holiday. Thank you !
Fabulous shop - fantastic staff - always go the extra mile - Poppy and Calli loved being there today - thank you so much �
This is why I love Podgy paws... they didn’t have the food I needed in stock so rather than leaving me stuck they’ve left me a smaller bag for over the weekend (without me having to ask) so thoughtful. Excellent customer service! Can’t recommend them enough.
Lovely friendly helpful staff that know what they are talking about went in for a harness today just expecting to get the next size up from the one I already had but found was no longer available. Trina talked us through the best options and sorted us out without our dog being there would highly recommend this shop
Popped in today to look for a fleece and harness for my greyhound. We received very informative and friendly advice. Just tried the harness on and it's a perfect fit! Thank you Podgy Paws �
Absolutely love this shop, Marley has recently had another new jumper and coat from here as well as a new harness and toys. We always go here if he needs anything. Great selection and great staff
Just brilliant! Packed up the car for a weekend in keswick with the pooches...Left home without their leads!! Noooo! Could’ve cried!
Rang podgy paws.... they offered to wait past closing time until I got there to pick up a set from there.
Happy pooches!! What amazing service and lovely people���they stock everything you’ll need xxx
