Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps.

It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.

Peterborough dog boarding. Shirley Lilley pictured with her dogs Bobby and BerryOur family doesn't feel complete without a four legged friend or two! Thirty-two years ago we were joined by Labrador Crunchie, and then followed Wispa - chocolate clearly being another love of ours! Sadly both are no longer with us, but we went on to have two Guide Dog puppies to socialise in their first year, both of whom made excellent working companions. We now have Bobby, our beautiful rescue Retriever and Berry, our very excitable Cocker Spaniel. Our home wouldn't be the same without them.

Leaving the dogs in kennels has always been a stressful and painful experience for them and us. Like many owners we didn't realise that there was such a wonderful home from home alternative in Wagging Tails. Not only does Wagging Tails provide the best holiday home for our guest dogs and peace of mind for their worried owners but it has also given me the most amazing career opportunity! Wagging Tails allows me to provide a service that I'm passionate about whilst giving like-minded dog owners the reassurance that their dogs are being well cared for while they are away so they can get on with enjoying their holiday.

I'm looking forward to building relationships with the local doggy community, putting together a team of dedicated Dog Carers to provide lovely dog holidays for our guests and meeting all the lovely dogs and owners in the area.

About Our Peterborough dog Carers

All our carers are experienced past dog owners who sadly 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 provide home dog boarding to owners in Peterborough and I would happily board Bobby and Berry with each of them. Carers are very well supported and I spend time with them explaining what it means to be a Carer with Wagging Tails in Peterborough. They know that I will always be available to help them should they have any queries and that they are part of a team of carers in the PE postcode district of Wagging Tails. Where necessary our carers are licensed 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 carers 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 carers door knowing exactly where they are and that it's holiday time!
