Our Story

Under new ownership as of 01 October 2021. Meet Debra Thorne and Chris Mathieson.

Pets in Paris is the only fully heated and air conditioned facility in Sale that caters for both dogs and cats.

Meet Pets in Paris’ new owners,
Debra Thorne and Chris Mathieson.

Debra and Chris were looking for a place they could be proud of, a place where they would happily leave their own Pets. After 7 years of searching, they found Pets in Paris in 2020.

The timing wasn’t quite right just then, however after reviewing their decision in mid 2021, they decided to make the big move. Within a week their home was on the market, and along with their 8 dogs and one cat, they were on their way!

Debra has been involved with dogs all her life.

It started when she was covered in fleas as a child, moving on to working dogs on the farm, training greyhounds, showing / grooming, and then finally onto breeding whippets, and Cattle dogs.

Deb landed her dream job of working in, then going on to manage a large boarding kennel business. After a while the time came to move on, as she really wanted to focus on grooming, which is where her own grooming business was born.

Chris grew up surrounded by Whippets.

Both of his parents were avid whippet breeders and racers, achieving many trophies and wins across the years.

Debra and Chris have been breeding their Whippets and Australian Cattle Dogs for a number of years now, and are well accustomed to sleepless nights spent looking after mum and babies.

They have taken great pride in watching every one of their babies grow and leave for their forever homes. They have also kept a few dogs themselves, who have gone on to achieve their show titles.

For Deb and Chris, their pets are their lives.

So much so that they don't take holidays together! Debra loves to go showing the dogs, and Chris really enjoys his fishing trips. Truth be told, they wouldn't have it any other way.

Over the next couple of years, there are many changes planned for Pets in Paris. Debra and Chris want to offer the absolute best in pet pampering and staycations, so that every single one of their furry clients can have the best possible visit. Their focus is, and always will be on offering high quality food and treats, plenty of outside time, lots of cuddles, the best pet day spa around and overall, the best of care you could imagine for your fur-babies.
