Wagging Tails - Dog Home Boarding covering the PO postcode area

Family Run Dog Boarding Company
I come from an animal mad family background having had various dogs, cats, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks, goldfish, etc. but we had been animal free for several years following a spell working abroad, then travelling extensively. In 2010 we found ourselves back in England without any furry friends until Coco came into our lives in the spring and completely took over!

We've had a lot of fun at obedience & agility classes, walking the South Downs Way and parts of the South West Coastal Path.

Then in 2012 my friend who used to look after Coco if we went overseas, emigrated to Australia, taking her Sheltie - Phoebe, (whom I used to look after) with her. So I had to find new holiday arrangements for Coco.

Wagging Tails arranged 2 holidays for Coco, and I was impressed with the efforts made to place Coco in the right family home with another dog about the same age so they could play together.

I thought I can do this - why don't I become a carer as Coco & I had always enjoyed having Phoebe to stay?

Over the past year we have had different dogs to stay, several returning 2 or 3 times, so they must have enjoyed themselves. Coco enjoys their company and during the sunny weather this summer she and whichever furry holiday maker was staying, ran & played, chasing round and round our garden.
During the autumn I decided to take our involvement a stage further & work as a franchisee in addition to boarding our little furry friends. And thus, the PO franchise became ours. Coco is fully involved in this enterprise and comes everywhere with me. All the Wagging Tails people I have met - as an owner boarding Coco, and as a carer boarding other people's dogs - have been so nice and such committed dog lovers intent on providing carefree, happy holidays for dogs whilst their owners are away.

About Our Carers
All our carers come from various walks of life and are experienced with different breeds of dogs they have all been vetted, interviewed and assessed. 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 holiday! I always aim to place dogs back with the same carer for subsequent holidays as the dogs and Carers build a strong bond.

“Thank you so much for looking after Purdie so well on our recent holiday. It was so good to receive messages from you and photos of Purdie whilst we were away, these always seemed to arrive just when we were wondering how she was and instantly put our minds at rest. Also knowing that you were quite willing and happy to give Purdie her insulin injections meant so much to us. Purdie will definitely be looking forward to her next holiday and catching up with Coco again. Shirley and Barry, Waterlooville”

“Rosemary is such a lovely friendly lady and I had no hesitation in leaving Bertie in her hands. She really looked after Bertie well while I was away and she took him on some lovely (and muddy) walks in the woods. Bertie seemed very happy staying there and I would have no hesitation in using this service again. I would highly recommend them to anyone who finds it hard to leave their dogs as its like home from home. Sharon, Horndean”
