Magnus relaxing on his Devon Dog Boarding Holiday with Wagging Tails

Hi Gary,

We had a lovely holiday and it was such a weight off our minds knowing that Magnus was in good hands while he was staying with you. It was really nice for him to be in a friendly home environment instead of a kennel. 

We will definitely recommend you to any friends or family visiting the area and we will definitely be in touch next time we are visiting.

Thanks again,

Lydia and Toyin, Devon.

Hi Sue,

I just wanted to thank you for sorting out Woody’s stay with Carol and her family while we were away in New Zealand . After a successful ‘sniffing out’ meeting Woody went to stay with Carol for 3 weeks in February, where he was safe, happy and very well cared for.

Unfortunately, while he was there he became unwell, through no fault of Carol’s, and required veterinary care. She took him to our own vet, who knows him well and then she gave him the best care to aid his recovery.

Woody was very happy with Carol and obviously had a lovely time and I can’t thank you enough for all your care. I will definitely use Carol again!

Once again, many thanks for everything.

Best Wishes,

Jane, West Sussex

Tucker enjoying his holiday with Hertfordshire Dog Carers John and Maureen

Hi Kevin,

Tucker thoroughly enjoyed his time with John and Maureen! After we picked him up and walked away, he kept pulling on the lead to go right back! I could tell he was looked after really well, John and Maureen clearly love dogs and made him feel very comfortable and happy. It made our holiday that much better, knowing that he was so well cared for.

We will definitely be requesting them in the future. Thank you!

Best wishes,

Alice, Harpenden

Burtie enjoying his holiday with Horsham Dog Carer Karen and her family

Hi Sue,

When we first met Karen and her family, Burtie seemed to settle very quickly and they warmed to him instantly which put me at ease. I was really pleased with Karen during our time away, she sent several emails including a couple of pictures and texts whilst we were away which I really liked. (I had expressed previously that I was sad to be leaving him!)

We wouldn't hesitate using Karen again.

Many thanks,

Alex, Horsham

Jack Russell, Saffie, enjoying her dog holiday with Devon Dog Carer Pat

Our 7 year old Jack Russell Saffie had a fantastic 5 star short break holiday with Pat. She was made to feel at home from the first moment we took her across to meet Pat and her dog Bella. Pat kept us up to date with texts each day telling us what Saffie had been up to and we also received photos of her during her walks on the beach and whilst lounging at home.

We’re sure that Saffie enjoyed her time with Pat and Bella as she was loved, cared for and was thoroughly spoilt. We also know that Pat enjoyed having her to stay and would love to have her back again. It was very reassuring to know that your beloved pet was safe and happy and enjoying her time away from you.

Many thanks to Pat and Gary for all of their assistance.

Best wishes,

Mickey, Tina and Saffie, Devon.

Lottie enjoying her Wiltshire dog boarding holiday with Wagging Tails

Hello Hilary,

From myself and Lottie we would like to thank Wagging Tails and Val massively. The whole process was extremely easy and Val made us feel at ease at all times allowing me to know Lots would be looked after as if she was her own.

I think Lots certainly is missing her playmate Belle. As a stubborn mastiff breed I had my concerns, but with Val’s reassurances and daily updates whilst we were away we were put at ease to enjoy our holiday. Thank you and Val so much and Lots is already looking forward to her next holiday.

Frank enjoying a walk on his Cardiff dog boarding holiday

We haven't had a dog for many years and now we have Frank who's 6 months old and a very boisterous labradoodle, we have fallen completely in love with him. Our children are grown and left home years ago and so Frank has become our baby.

We began to think we wouldn't be having any more holidays abroad as the thought of him having to go into a kennel was not an option for us. The we heard about Rhian and Wagging Tails. After speaking to Rhian and being completely reassured of the service we took Frank for his 'sniffing out meeting' and met Rhian's dog Daisy who is lovely and very sociable. She wasn't bothered by Frank bouncing around and they played really well together. 

It's clear Rhian is crazy about dogs, she really made Frank welcome, asking lots of relevant questions, she even sent photos of him playing to reassure us. Frank has been again recently and was clearly happy. He settled, played and ate his food. He also had a sleep! He'll be going again next month and then for 6 days in April. 

I have absolute faith in Rhian, we are happy to leave our special boy with her. 

I can't recommend Wagging Tails enough, you can be sure your little boy or girl will receive warm, kind and excellent care.

Dotty enjoying her Hampshire dog boarding holiday with Wagging Tails

Our usual dog carer, Liz, was unfortunately away when we were, so Caroline fixed us up with another lady who is an experienced dog lover also. But on the hand over we failed to take Dotty’s bed, and it was a long way back to pick it up, but we had blankets and towel in her bag of stuff. Wendy went the “extra mile” by allowing Dotty to snuggle up with her, which she thought was fabulous I’m sure. Well done Wendy you saved the day and made a little doggy very comfortable!

But…… We now have a LIST of Dotty’s holiday bag contents to avoid pushing the boundaries!!!

Dotty has also enjoyed several short holidays with Liz in Totton. It is so reassuring to know our little pooch is getting lots of love and attention when we are away. She has the novelty of a spacious, secure garden which we don’t have at home. Liz spreads out all her decorating sheets to protect the furniture, because Dotty loves to snuggle down on any soft surface. She gets thoroughly spoilt!!

Greta and Dotty, Romsey
