Oxfordshire dog boarding. Teresa Bowers with her dogs Digby and Tyler

I have always enjoyed the company of dogs and my own dogs, Buddy and Lucy, love having playmates to stay. We especially love to see their 'old friends' returning each year and are looking forward to meeting new friends.

Sadie and Harvey enjoying their dog holiday home in Oxfordshire

We were a little anxious leaving our best friends when we recently went on holiday; we love our dogs so much and they mean everything to us – we needn’t have worried.

We are so pleased with the care Steve and Gung gave to our dogs, Sadie and Harvey. After first meeting them we were reassured and they sent us regular updates so we were able to relax knowing that they were in good hands, having a lovely holiday themselves.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wagging Tails and we feel so confident knowing that Sadie and Harvey will have a lovely time, that we are arranging our next holiday.

Pippa chilling out with Oxford Dog Carer Maureen while on holiday

Maureen and Ian have looked after Pippa three times.

She is clearly very well looked after there, makes herself at home, and has a lovely time. They were even willing to look after her once when she wasn't very well which was so kind of them and meant we could all go to our son's graduation.

Maureen and Ian are great Carers.

Dolly enjoying a walk in the Oxfordshire countryside on her holiday

We recently boarded our beloved Dalmatian, Dolly, with Debbie and Neil and are absolutely delighted with the care and attention she received.

Clearly devoted, knowledgeable and calm owners themselves, they provided Dolly with impeccable care and her pining owners with regular updates and photographs, and generally did everything possible to ensure that Dolly’s stay was happy, safe and fun. All in all, absolutely faultless. Would recommend 100%. Thank you, Debbie and Neil!

With thanks & best wishes,

Carolyn, Oxfordshire

Barney enjoying the garden while on his dog holiday in Oxfordshire

After some unexpected news we needed some boarding for our Border Collie - Barney. A beloved pet but not the easiest dog to board on a very short schedule!

Teresa was fantastic and put us in touch with a local lady who was brilliant and understood exactly what was required. We were able to depart knowing Barney would be well looked after by a caring person.

I can recommend Wagging Tails and Teresa without hesitation.

Merlot out in the garden on her Oxfordshire doggy holiday with Wagging Tails

Dear Teresa

Just a note to thank you for matching Merlot up with Denise, it seems to have worked really well. Merlot has obviously been looked after brilliantly and I am delighted with the whole process.

I have 2 long weekends that I would like to book and would very much like Denise to have her again if possible.

Thanks and best wishes,

Mary, Oxfordshire

Barnaby on his holiday with Wagging Tails in Oxfordshire

Dear Teresa,

Thank you and Verona for sending the photos of Barnaby taken during his stay. It was really lovely to see him so happy and relaxed in our absence! Verona and Nigel are such nice and friendly people that we didn’t have any doubts Barnaby would enjoy himself in their company. Thank you for introducing us to them.

As always, you have found a perfect environment and carers for him and we know from past experience of leaving him with family and friends that it’s not an easy thing. Barnaby clearly had really great time with Verona and Nigel, as on picking him up we found him in a very good mood and displaying exactly the same behaviour as we see in him every day. That’s the best possible sign for us that the separation didn’t upset him or cause any stress.

We’d love if Verona and Nigel could take care of Barnaby again in the future!

Kevin and Louie enjoyed a great dog holiday in Oxfordshire

Thanks to Steve and Gung for another great holiday for Louie and Kevin. The love and care they show our boys is always above and beyond and means so much.

I would highly recommend Steve and Wagging Tails to anyone as it’s a great home from home environment for dogs.

Stan relaxing on his holiday with Oxfordshire dog carers Anne & Gareth

Thank you to Teresa for putting us in touch with Anne and Gareth. Our dog has never been in kennels before (he's 7 years old) and I knew he would hate it. Stan has now been to Anne and Gareth for 2 of our holidays and he certainly does seem to appreciate going.

We couldn't have asked for anything better for Stan. We would certainly use them again and we'd hope they'd be available for Stan.

Many thanks,

Alex, Oxfordshire
