Serving K9 Clients in

St Mawes, Portscatho

& The Roseland, Cornwall




out walking & in our home

Our Group Walks have a maximum of 6 dogs per walker (the perfect number for a good pack caper!) and give plenty of opportunity for off-lead fun, exercise and socialisation.

Our hour walks are just that, an hour of fun and walking (and running!).  We’ll collect your K9 companion during the ½ hour before their walk time-slot and drop them back home during the ½ hour afterwards.

Away for the day or perhaps your dog enjoys plenty of entertainment?  Why not consider Doggy Day Care!


£10 / hour Group Walk 

Available Mon-Fri

I collect my Doggy Day Care doggies in the morning, give them an action-packed day of dog walking, playing, exploring, and resting with their K9 buddies, and drop them home happy and tired in the afternoon!

Our K9 capers take us to a variety of locations perfect for off lead exercise – from dog friendly beaches to stunning countryside and local woodland.  Rest time is spent in our own home – comfy beds and blankets to snuggle in, our terrace garden for a snooze in the sunshine in the summer and our log burner to snooze in front of in the colder months.

Dogs are supervised at all times and we never have more than 6 doggy clients (walkers, day care and home boarders) with us at a time – whether that’s at home between walks, or out on our capers.

Doggy Day Care is available 09:30 - 16:00 (times are flexible) and costs


£25 on weekdays

Available Mon-Fri (exc. BHs)

(Please do call if day care is needed at the weekend - we will always do our best to help).

Collection & return home is included in St Mawes - please contact me to discuss if you live outside the village.

We know just how important it is to know that your K9 companions are well looked after and happy whether you’re away for a few days or jetting off for some long-haul sunshine for a couple of weeks. 

That’s why we are so pleased to offer licensed Home Boarding in our home so that your dogs can enjoy their own holiday as part of our family and joining in our K9 Capers whilst you are away.


Our boarding rate is our Day Care rate of £25, + £5, so £30/night 

(24 hours).

Short breaks (3 nights or less) & the Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon of Bank Holiday weekends are £40/night

(24 hours)

Our Doggy Day Care, Dog Walking & Home Boarding capers take us to fabulous locations!



Hello!  My name is Emma, and with my 2 mud loving bundles of fur Dougie and Merry, I run The K9 Capers Co. - Doggy Day Care, Dog Walking, and Doggy Holidays in our home in St Mawes, Cornwall. 

I grew up in Ashburton, Devon and have always had a passion for dogs and the great outdoors - much of my own free time is spent exploring Devon and Cornwall's amazing walks with my husband and our hounds - great fun, exercise and entertainment for all of us! 

Like most people I 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, I decided to take the step I'd always dreamt of - to start my own professional Doggy Day Care, Dog Walking and Home Boarding (Pet Sitting) (ad!)venture.  

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, I'm here to help and just a call or a message away.

We take our K9 Clients in packs of up to 6 (per walker) to dog friendly beaches, local woodlands and countryside where they can run to their hearts' content and play with their fellow caper-ers!  Brilliant exercise and fantastic social stimulation. 

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.

A fun walk and doggy playtime will more often than not mean that mud will be involved!  We will always endeavour to return dogs home with rinsed and towelled paws and tummies.

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