Wagging Tails - Dog Home Boarding across Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
Peterborough dog boarding. Shirley Lilley pictured with her dogs Bobby and Berry Our 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 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!
We are very proud to be recommended by many Vets, Dog Trainers, Groomers and Owners.
Our caliber of Carers and dedication to giving owner's dogs a stress free alternative to kennels makes Wagging Tails the ideal holiday home for all dogs including rescue dogs, puppies and elderly dogs.
Our Aim is to ensure that owners can go away safe in the knowledge that their dogs are being loved and cared for and for all dogs boarding with Wagging Tails Carers to get a holiday of their own, full of love, exercise and those all important cuddles!
“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”
“Hi Shirley, thanks for linking us up with Kay and Tony. Buddy really enjoyed his time there. Whilst we were on holiday we had a couple of emails and pictures to show how happy Buddy was. I will definitely be using you and them again. I enjoyed my holiday so much knowing Buddy was happy. Many Thanks, David and Debbie, Peterborough”

“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 :) Mill, Cambridgeshire. ”
“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”

“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. ”
