Wagging Tails - Dog Home Boarding in Welwyn, Hertfordshire
Family Run Dog Boarding Company
Dogs are such amazing creatures. As well as bringing simple, uncomplicated, happiness into our lives, they help us in so many ways, making a more normal life possible for people who suffer from many kinds of disability. In return, the least we can do is to do everything we can to make sure they live happy and healthy lives. For us, that doesn’t include leaving our dogs in kennels when we go away on holiday. How could we enjoy ourselves, knowing that we’d left them in a strange place, with strange dogs, and no way of telling them that we’d be back?
In early 2015 I was made redundant from my IT job. I had become increasingly dissatisfied with the corporate world, working under artificial lighting on an office while the sun shone outside, and I decided this was an opportunity to make a career change. I looked at a variety of options but when I came across Wagging Tails, it appealed to me immediately as a way that I could do something positive for man’s best friend, as well as providing a much needed service for dog owners, who would be able to go away on holiday and have peace of mind that their dogs are being well cared for in a real ‘home from home’ environment. And of course, it means I get to spend more time with my wife and with my own dogs!
At Wagging Tails - Hertfordshire, the dogs always come first, and I’m proud to be a part of the team. I look forward to building up a team of dedicated carers to provide an unmatched service to dog owners in the St Albans and Welwyn area.''
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.
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!
“It was the first time leaving our dog Ruben (2 year old Puggle) with people we didn't know. I was very pleased with the service we received and Lorraine and family were lovely and very welcoming of Ruben. I think he got more attention there than he does at home!!! I would like to say a thank you from us and Ruben for taking such good care of him whilst we were away and would recommend Wagging Tails if anybody is looking for a dog boarder. Definitely was a home from home. Thanks again for such good service. Many thanks, Clare, Hertfordshire”
“We used Wagging Tails to find someone close by to look after our dog Rocky. We didn't like the idea of Rocky going into kennels so home boarding was the perfect option. We were matched quickly with a great family who only lived 5 minutes away from us. Rocky is lovely border terrier with lots of energy. It was great that we were matched with a couple that previously had a border terrier so they were used to the breed and the playful/ mischievous nature of our dog. Rocky had a great time and was really well looked after and loved whilst we were gone. I have no hesitation in using wagging tails again and would definitely recommend them. Maria, St Albans”
“Sending our Bulldog Samson to a dog sitter was a new experience for us. Wagging Tails definatley didn't disappoint, Samson has thoroughly enjoyed his time with Jan and her family. Whilst we were away on holiday It was reassuring to know that he was in good hands and having a little holiday of his own! And returned to us a happy chappy. Thoroughly recommend!
