The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

Wagging Tails Swindon Franchisee Hilary Coates with her Beagle, BanditWagging Tails is a home dog boarding company offering dog owners in the Swindon (SN) postcode area an alternative to kennels. 

I have had a variety of pets in my life and dogs have always been my favourite with their capacity for unconditional love. I can still remember the day our family brought home our labrador puppy William and I comforted him as he trembled in the corner of our kitchen... & I was only 6 years old! Changing circumstances meant that rabbits, a budgie and a hamster were pets, as well as a family of stray cats which we adopted (or was that the other way round)?

Through those years, I always felt that I would own another dog one day and then 8 years ago the time was right to fulfil that dream... Enter Bandit, my mischievous, headstrong Beagle, who makes me laugh so much, even when he is at his frustrating best (which is often). He has travelled to the other side of the world with us, spending 18 months in China where our presence on regular walks was a source of much interest from the locals.

Without nearby family to help us, wherever we were living, we had to leave him in kennels when we went away on holiday, which for him wasn’t the best situation. Although I became increasingly aware of alternatives, I knew Bandit wouldn’t be happy as one of a few dogs in a holiday home either, so what could I do?

Now, thanks to spotting an opportunity with Wagging Tails, I have the chance to develop a network of dedicated carers, so that owners like me will be able to find a home dog boarding alternative to kennels without having to wait in line for years and know that their dog is the only one being cared for. I am looking forward to supporting my carers 24/7 to ensure that all the dogs in our care have the great holiday they deserve & to welcoming them back year after year.



I am trained in Canine First Aid and have successfully completed the Animal Aiders Dog First Aid Training Course.

About Our Wiltshire Dog Carers

All of our carers are experienced past dog owners who either no longer have dogs of their own or have one dog who enjoys the company of visiting dogs. Coming from various walks of life and experienced with different breeds of dogs they have all been vetted, interviewed and assessed to ensure they provide the very highest quality home dog boarding and I would happily board Bandit with each of them. Where necessary our carers are licensed for home dog boarding by their local Council to comply with the Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963 and are fully insured through Wagging Tails Pet Business Insurance. I match each owner's dogs with the most suitable dog carer and insist on a 'sniffing out meeting' taking place at the carers home before the board. I believe it is very important for owners to meet the chosen carer to gain peace of mind and feel confident their best friend will have a great dog holiday! I always aim to place dogs back with the same carer for subsequent holidays as the dogs and carers build a strong bond. Many owners have told me their dogs have dragged them to the carer's door knowing exactly where they are and that it's holiday time!
