He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Joy out enjoying a walk while enjoying her holiday with Cambridgeshire dog carer Kim

‘We have boarded Joy, our Springer, w Wagging Tails for 5 years and due to a move, different franchises. Joy recently stayed with Kim for nearly 3 weeks - the longest we’ve ever left her, and she had as good a holiday as we did! Kim was very caring and conscientious with Joy’s regime.

Joy has some arthritis in one joint and it needs watching in case of a flare up. Kim monitored this, gave her all the exercise Joy needed and benefitted from Joy’s loving nature as much as Joy settled in with Kim and frequent visits from her grandson. Joy is already booked in with Kim for 2 more breaks this year, and we look forward to many more as we are now semi-retired.’

I’ve boarded our dogs in ‘private homes’ for the last 25 years and we never had an ‘incident’, however, once I ‘found’ Wagging Tails, I now greatly value the professional foundation of the franchise and the knowledge that, should anything happen at the carer’s end which might make care of our dog difficult or impossible, a backup system is in place. Friends and neighbours are great for helping out, but having a proper agreement in place is really important to us and we don’t book our flights until we’ve confirmed that a Wagging Tails carer can have Joy.’

Vinnie & Ruby enjoying their dog holiday in Whittlesey

My dogs, Vinnie and Ruby stayed with David & Margaret in Whittlesey.

They were perfectly looked after and I'd have no hesitation in recommending Wagging Tails to friends/family.

Coco enjoying a walk on his Cambridgeshire dog boarding holiday

Coco's Contemplations

I have just enjoyed a holiday in a house, with lovely folk.
They gave me walks and fed me and I slept-in 'til I woke.
I had my basket and my toys, so I soon felt quite at home
And the people fussed and loved me and didn't let me roam.
I'd quite like to go back there, when my master goes away
'Cos I know he'll come and fetch me and we'll all have happy days.

............she clearly enjoyed her stay and was well looked after. We had a good break and felt secure in the knowledge that she would be safe and happy while we were away.  Many thanks to Margaret and David.

Very best wishes,

Gillie, Huntingdon

Issi enjoying some time with Peterborough Dog Carer Julie

Dear Shirley,

Thank you for your letter and Issi's holiday snaps. Wagging Tails was such a brilliant find!

Finding you took all the stress out of the weekend, knowing Issi was well cared for. Issi had a wonderful holiday at Julie's, she is such a lovely lady!

She is an old dog with everything that goes with age. Julie was so caring, I will definitely book again!

Thank you so much! Wagging Tails is a brilliant organisation.

Jan and Issi.

Poppy had a great holiday with Cambridgeshire dog carers Kay & Tony

Hi Shirley

Just to let you know how pleased we were with Kay and Tony. Poppy really enjoyed her stay with this lovely couple who we would definitely recommend.

We received regular updates and photos from Poppy during the week which, although made me cry, it really helped knowing that she was settled. The whole process ran smoothly with all details regarding Poppy’s care and routine discussed and noted.

I would have no hesitation in using Wagging Tails again.

Many thanks,

Kev, Michelle and Poppy. Xx. Cambridgeshire

Thanks for the lovely photos of Molly.

It's the first time we've left Molly for a long period and time and we felt so happy and comfortable knowing she was being looked after by Shirley, Bobby and Berry!

We will 100% use Wagging Tails in the future and would be very happy if Shirley was happy to have Molly in her home again.

Thanks soooo much :)

Stefan enjoying a chew on his holiday with Peterborough Dog Carer Julienne

Hi Shirley,

We were bit anxious to leave out little boy for the first time, but as we learn after the holiday - there was nothing to be worry about. When we came back our Stefan looked happy and well taken care of. He wasn't even too keen to leave Julienne's home.

We will highly recommend Wagging Tails to anybody and we will use your service in the future. Thank you Shirley and thank you Julienne, one more time - thank you for your service.

Kind regards,

Agnieszka, Peterborough
