Barking Mad

I am delighted with the care Misty received whilst staying with Linda in Oxfordshire over the summer. I am so relieved to have found a home-from-home for Misty when we go away, and hope Linda will care for Misty in the future as the need arises. Thanks so much Linda!

Shambles relaxing in the garden on his West Sussex dog boarding holiday

Hi Sue,

Just wanted to drop you a note and say that as per usual Shambles received outstanding care with David. He’s absolutely fantastic and I always relax when Shambles is with him and know she’s in good hands.

I also love the extra things he does like take photos of their walks :). She’s not the easiest of dogs always and it’s so great to see that she really has grown fond of David and they have a great time together.

Molly and Tilly lounging on their Wiltshire dog holiday with Wagging Tails

Dear Hilary,

As a family we want to thank you so much for finding Audrey and Ian who looked after Molly and Tilly. We were really worried about Molly- previous skin problems when in kennels- resulting in emergency vet appointment on the day we collected her, this happened twice.

Second time we were told it was due to "separation anxiety". We all decided as a family never again and would forego holidays. Then I found a leaflet at Thameswood Vets and the rest they say is history.

Audrey and Ian were so attentive and we really feel they looked after them both as we would- so totally spoilt. The day we collected them, they were both happy. Molly's eyes were bright and not sore and puffy- no issues with her skin and she wasn't barking constantly. They were just excited to see us. Even better, Audrey and Ian said they would have them again in a heartbeat- so that is really reassuring. Audrey even sent us photos when I text a couple of days in as we were all worried about them while we were away- Molly asleep at Ian's feet and Tilly being cuddled- we all relaxed then.

Can’t thank you enough.

Claire and family (including Molly and Tilly), Wiltshire.  xx

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

Hi Hilary,

Just wanted to say thank you very much for arranging Billy and Ronnie's recent stay with Brigid and John who are a lovely couple and we feel the boys were very well looked after. 

We will definitely be using Wagging Tails next year when we go on a 2 week cruise and hope Brigid and John are available.

Once again thank you

Kind regards,

Toby looking out of the window during his Sussex dog holiday with Wagging Tails

We could not have been more pleased with Joan and Peter who took Toby into their home and hearts and treated him royally. Also, the fact that Lesley visited him to make sure that he was behaving himself (!). Thank you Wagging Tails. Toby is looking forward to his next stay in the summer.

A relaxing break! Cosey enjoying her holiday with Wiltshire Dog Carers Steve and Teresa

Hi Hilary,

 A big thank you to Steve and Teresa for looking after Cosey, she loves the company of people so going into another home was ideal for her. Cosey certainly felt comfortable and relaxed, even on her first initial visit, settling down on the carpet and not even getting up when I was ready to leave!!  Thank you again.

We certainly would not hesitate in using Wagging Tails when we next go away.

Kind regards,

Christine & Graham, Wiltshire

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to John and Maureen for looking after Arwen. They clearly love dogs and gave her so much love and attention.

I felt really happy knowing she was so well looked after.

Toby enjoying a dip in the water on his Southampton dog boarding holiday

Hi Caroline,

Thank you for your letter and photo of Toby. He had a wonderful time with Jo, Bas and Finny, and they got on really well together.

I was worried about Jo as she had been so ill, but she still had Toby and looked after him brilliantly, as if he were her own dog. I can't praise her highly enough as she is so kind and caring and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a boarder.
