Wagging Tails - Dog Home Boarding in Swindon
Family Run Dog Boarding Company
Once I had a family of my own, we spent three years living in Italy, where we were “adopted” by a stray cat and her three kittens. Seeing my children learn to take responsibility and push themselves to learn some Italian in order to ask neighbours to help look after the cats if we were away, it struck me again what a wonderful addition pets can be to a family.
When we got back to England, I started to ask other owners here about homes he could go to instead of kennels, but as he also prefers to be on his own in a home, I couldn’t use anyone who has other dogs at the same time. Luckily, I spotted an opportunity with Wagging Tails to set up my own business here in the SN area, with a network of experienced dog owners who are thrilled to offer dogs their home on a one to one basis and the rest, as they say, is history.
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!
“Hi Hilary, We are very impressed with Wagging Tails and will be recommending them to others. Monty is our 8 month old Lab x puppy who is a rescue and due to his very bad start has been left with some trust and anxiety issues. Hilary listened to all the problems he has and placed him with a suitable dog sitter. When Steve and Teresa first met Monty he was quite nervous and barked at Steve, but due to their calm and caring nature he soon relaxed and when we dropped him off he was pleased to see them. Monty definitely enjoyed his stay and has come home a lot more confident and relaxed. He now very rarely barks at other dogs due to all the kind training Steve and Teresa did with him. At very short notice they also agreed to take our other dog Tommy as sadly his brother Harry was put down and Tommy had never been on his own. We will definitely be using Steve and Teresa again.

“Hilary, Firstly, could I thank you, Wagging Tails and most importantly Barbara and her husband for the excellent service and care for Taz during my work in France last week. Please could you pass on my sincere thanks to Barbara & it was very clear that Taz had been treated as part of the family and was very happy in his home from home. With best wishes, Richard, Swindon”

“Hi Hilary, I just wanted to let you know how wonderful Barbara was with Vida; she clearly loved her little holiday with her, and was definitely well looked after. It certainly seemed that she made herself at home and developed a good relationship with Barbara and Maurice, as well as enjoying lots of interesting walks on her hyper long extension lead, daily grooming and 24 hour company - all in all, she had a superb time! I would certainly have no hesitation in Barbara looking after her again, and I'm sure Vida would be delighted too. Best wishes, Louise”

“We have no hesitation in recommending Wagging Tails. We can't speak highly enough of the excellent service received from Hilary and the care given to Monty by Steve and Teresa. Having been let down at the last minute (less than 1 weeks notice!) we were anxiously looking for someone (but not just anyone) to look after our beloved little Staffie. We found Wagging Tails on-line and, with the minimum of fuss, Hilary listened to what we needed and put us in touch with Steve. Monty is bouncy, exuberant and craves attention/affection all the time, so he's quite demanding but Steve and Teresa took this in their stride. They made him very welcome in their home (see the photo of him looking very comfy indeed!) and we genuinely believe his holiday was every bit as good as ours. It may have been a last minute booking but everything went perfectly... He'll definitely be holidaying with Steve and Teresa again. Ten out of ten from us! Mike, Swindon”
