Wagging Tails provide a home dog boarding alternative to traditional kennels. Run by dog lovers for dog lovers our priority is the welfare and happiness of your dogs and your peace of mind when you are on holiday.

Established in early 2007 Wagging Tails offers home dog boarding to dog owners as an alternative to traditional kennels.

Having grown up around and cared for friends and family's dogs we could see for ourselves the benefits of home dog boarding. Seeing how content the dogs were in our care, not to mention how relaxed the owners were, we decided this should be a service available to all dogs and their owners. With demand for our services high it soon became apparent that we would need to find like minded carers to join our family.

From the start we felt it was essential that our carers were very experienced dog owners who were at home all day and could devote their love and attention to the dogs in their care. We also felt it was better for the dogs that our carers boarded just one family's dogs at a time. Most important to us was to ensure that the owners, their dogs and the carer meet prior to the holiday. Our owners have told us this gives them the greatest reassurance, knowing where their best friend will be spending its holiday having had what we call a "Sniffing Out Meeting"!!!

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!

For more information on the home boarding services we offer, the joys of becoming a carer or even joining our team and running your own local Wagging Tails we hope you will enjoy using our site.

"Give your dog a holiday!"

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
