Wagging Tails York Dog Boarding, Jane Bamford with her dog StanleyI have grown up with a dog in my family and at the age of 22 myself and my now husband Ross were able to get a dog of our own. Archie was a much loved Border Terrier and lived until the age of 13. We now have a Cockerpoo, Stanley who provides so much love and enjoyment to ourselves and our two children.

I have been delighted to discover Wagging Tails having worked for the NHS for almost 20 years. I am now looking forward to building a business of my own whilst being able to put the best interests of the dogs at the forefront the whole time.

A dog is a full member of the family and through Wagging Tails dog owners are able to go away knowing that they are leaving their dogs with people who will give them the home from home environment and dedicated care and time they deserve.

Both you and your dog(s) will get the chance to meet and get to know your dog's carer first before the board. This enables you to go away, with complete peace of mind, knowing that your dog will be having a great holiday too!




I am trained in Canine First Aid and have successfully completed the Animal Aiders Dog First Aid Training Course.

About Our York 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 York and the surrounding areas and I would happily board Stanley 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 York. 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 YO 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 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!
