Kingston dog boarding. Roz Bourne and her dogs Buffy and Darcy

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.

Olli enjoys a nice walk on his Wagging Tails dog holiday in Surrey

I was pretty anxious about leaving my lovely American Cocker spaniel Olli when I went away for a weekend as he does get a touch of separation anxiety.

I liked the ethos and set up of Wagging Tails and felt far happier after my sniffing out meeting with Joanne. She obviously loves dogs and is a natural with them. She took really good care of him, he had loads of long walks and made lots of new doggie friends. She also found the time to text me to reassure me that all was going well.

I would have no hesitation in leaving Ollie with Joanne again or recommending Wagging Tails to other dog owners.

Best regards,

Buster and Hovis have a good sniff while on their dog sitting holiday!

Hi Carene,

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you for organising the holiday for Buster and Hovis with Anna.

We collected them both last night and it was obvious that they had had a wonderful time and been very well cared for by Anna.

Thank you so much again for your help in finding lovely & caring accommodation for them at such short notice.

Kind regards,

Thames Ditton

Thank you so much for organising Chip's board, it went brilliantly. I am very happy with Sharon, she was brilliant, and Chip had a great time.

Whisky and Jewel on a Wagging Tails dog holiday

Dear Carene,

I would just like to say how reassured I am when I leave Whisky and Jewel with you. Whisky in particular has never liked leaving home and he hates kennels. The fact that he enters your home wagging his tail and seeing his friend is very comforting. I know that I do not have to worry about them when I leave them with you.

I have already recommended you to my friends.

With best wishes,

Denyse. (KT Postcode owner)

A dog boarding in Kingston-upon-Thames with Wagging Tails

‘When leaving Tica with Wagging Tails I feel totally sure that she will have as good a holiday as we are.

She has been with two different families and both have been brilliant! I can totally stop worrying about her and just enjoy myself.

Carene and her team are great! I will certainly recommend.

Lucky relaxing on her Kingston dog holiday


Thank you ever so much. Lucky has obviously been well cared for and if anything seems a little disappointed to come back!

The kids are delighted to have her back though! It's a great service you offer.

Thanks again and see you soon,

Dear Carene,

Just to say how delighted I was with Mark and his dedication and attitude – you should be pleased to have him on your books.

Tiger says hello to a horse whilst enjoying his dog holiday

Tiger really enjoys her time at Jayne’s and loves to play with the children and Freddie (Cocker Spaniel).

Jayne was more than lovely sending a couple of photos & texts to reassure me during Tiger’s first stay. She’s just returned happy from her second visit and I have recommended Jayne and Wagging Tails to a friend.
