Press Article - Abode 2 Luxury Property

Whoever said that diamonds are a girls best friend never owned a dog. As owners lead increasingly busy life, they are becoming more conscious of the standard of care their pets are kept in while they’re not around. Luxury and 5-star service is what is acceptable and this is the level of care I wanted for my own dog. Reach for the Paws is run by Anita and her greyhound Lady T. After having her own dog walker and wondering if Lady T had been out and what was happening in her day, with minimal co...

How to find a good dog sitter

We’re definitely a nation of animal lovers and when it comes to our pets. We consider them to be more of a family member than just a four legged friend, and that’s why having to go away on holidays can be an extremely stressful time for you and your pet. One dog owner told me she felt the same way as taking her child to her first day of school as she did when she had to leave her beloved Cockapoo at a boarding kennel for the first time! After all, kennels can also bring up all sorts of worri...

Phone call from a magazine - Follow your dreams

Little did I know after redundancy a year ago that I would be in the advertising part of TATLER Magazine.  I have a vision for Reach for the Paws and I certainly think people thought I was barking mad to enter into the dog retail world as well as set up a pet services business. Retail is hard work, so many amazing brands and business's.  Lady T my greyhound set out to provide glamour and I go live on my walks so that owners can see their dog and know it is being cared for and also shar...

The Day Lady T got more than her paws wet

I can understand how parents are so proud of their children when an exciting moment happens.  My child is my Greyhound Lady T, who is a rather elegant girl that does not like getting muddy or wet.  When a dog rescues you it takes time for them to settle into their new life.   Lady T gives so much to the dogs that stay with us or that she walks with.  Today was her day and to see a dog so happy with her friends was just pure therapy to watch.  Lady T found her inner ...

Doggy Day Care

I hear a shake of a body, a stretch more stretching and a grumble from Lady T my greyhound, my signal that her belly is rumbling and she would like feeding.  Well Lady T at 5:00am you can just relax settle down and let me snooze.   I let Lady T out in the garden at around 5:00 and say hello to the guest of Boo a greyhound and Wiggy an Italian greyhound.  Lady T and I head back for a snooze which lasted about 30 minutes until I am woken up by an Italian, well they do have char...

A different type of office view

Lady T was my inspiration to start running a bespoke pet services and fashion boutique.  My amazing greyhound has been in my life for nearly a year.  During this time I had a dog walker who supported us during the days. I now get to spend time with other owners dogs who are very important, Alfie is in the picture who has had a previous life that wasn't so good, and he is now adopted by a lovely family.  It is a great honour as part of my job to build confidence with Alfie and othe...

My life changed when I was adopted by my human friend, greyhound racing wasn't for me, retirement is greyt!

Hello I am Lady T, When I was younger I had an unhappy life. I was forced to run as fast as I could but wasn’t that good as only came 2nd and 3rd then ended up last and then I was sent away. Then one day in January 2017 a lady came along and saw me and I thought I like you and you seem to need a friend to care for you. The Lady returned in February 2017 to take me to her new home. I had never been in a proper home before, and I love it here. Lots of walks with new friends and now I am a glamou...
