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.

Brutus relaxing on his dog boarding holiday in Berkshire

Wagging Tails is a fantastic organisation. The admin side was dealt with efficiently and we were kept informed as a suitable carer was sourced. Our dog is elderly and quite a handful on the lead, but after explaining this to Teresa, she found us the perfect carer who works from home.

So, Brutus had company most of the day and the location was perfect for short or long walks. He went for a short visit first and then stayed two weeks with Jason. He was treated as part of the family and even allowed to lie on the settee! Jason kept us in the picture whilst we were away, which was great. Brutus had such a great time that I don't think he wanted to come home.

I would recommend Wagging Tails, Reading, to anyone.

Hi Teresa,

Thank you for the lovely photo of Ellie, we were very pleased with the way that Pauline looked after Ellie and that she settled in easily with her own dogs, and we would certainly recommend Pauline any time.

Many thanks again.

Berkshire dog boarding. Zac.

Thank you Teresa for recommending Val and Brian to look after Zac.

We were very anxious as Zac had always stayed with the Breeder, but due to a family illness, this was not possible for our forthcoming holiday. We wouldn't dream of putting him into kennels, so this seemed the ideal solution. Not that he is spoilt at all!

Well, why did we fret about this - he seemed to thoroughly enjoy his stay with them. Val updated me frequently with reassuring text messages, he was having a lovely time. He went to pub quizzes and made friends with a Labrador and went out for lunch too, as well as his usual walks. They said he was a very sweet boy and no trouble and wouldn't hesitate having him to stay again.

So, now being reassured he will be very happy with his holidays at Val and Brian's - we have made a further two bookings for him to stay with them.

Fergus enjoying a muddy walk on his Wagging Tails dog boarding holiday

Hi Teresa,

Just wanted to thank you for placing Fergus with Debbie and Neil, he had a wonderful holiday and him and Ellie were best friends!

He was so well looked after and I received lots of pictures and updates which was so reassuring when you are so far from home. He was really pleased to see us when we returned and has settled straight back into home life! In fact it was so good that I have already booked the same 2 weeks next summer!!!

Thanks again,

Helen & Fergus!!

Kobe and Tinkerbell relaxing with dog carer Carole on their Reading dog boarding holiday

After Kobe had a stressful stay in kennels I vowed that we would only go on holidays if family look after Kobe and Tinks. I was a little nervous using this service for the first time but from the day I met Carole I knew they would be well looked after.

They love company and cuddles and that is exactly what they received from Carole and Joe. Kobe even took a liking to Joe’s favourite chair!! I didn’t worry about them at all and it was lovely receiving a photo – where they look very relaxed and at home. This just confirmed to me that I had made the right decision.

Carole and Joe were fantastic and would definitely recommend Wagging Tails to friends and family.

Freddie and Sansa enjoyed a great Berkshire dog boarding holiday

We were absolutely delighted with the way Annette and Kieran cared for our two dogs whilst we went on holiday for a week.

We have two large dogs, one blind and the other a young English Setter who is very boisterous so we were a little worried about leaving them. We needn't have worried as Annette is very experienced and coped brilliantly and is in fact having them again for us very soon!

So pleased with the entire service from Wagging Tails. We will definitely use them whenever we go away.

Thank you!

Mario and Pixie waiting for a treat on their Reading dog boarding holiday

We were looking to arrange a holiday for our two Yorkshire Terriers Mario and Pixie – our children have looked after them previously but as they now have cats, this wasn’t an option.

We were reluctant to place them in kennels as they are very much part of the family so looked at alternatives. Although we were a little tentative about leaving them, we had no need to worry as their carer Karen, was excellent and has given them a lovely holiday.

We are extremely pleased that we found Wagging Tails and will have no hesitation in using your service again.
