At the beginning of June 2014, Always Waggy Tails were shortlisted for two awards to be judged at the prestigious Barking & Dagenham Business Awards held in July.  Then, in its 7th year the main aim of the Awards is to showcase & celebrate all types of businesses in the local area.  There were a record number of entries in 2014, so for us to even make the short list in two seperate categories was an amazing achievement in itself.  We are very proud to announce that, on the night we won the Award for Innovation & were Runners up in the Customer Service category.  A big thank you to everyone that helped us achieve this & a special mention to the B.E.C - Barking, Medivet - Chadwell Heath & PDSA - Romford.

Following on from our amazing achievments in 2014... We are very pleased to announce, Always Waggy Tails were selected as finalists in THREE seperate categories at the Barking & Dagenham Business Awards 2015 held in July.  As we are a small family run business, to be shortlisted for three awards is an unbelievable achievment, especially when we saw the size of the companies competing against us.  Although we didn't win this year we are still very proud to announce finishing as Runners up in two categories & being Highly Commended in all three.  A really big thank you to eveyone that has helped us along the way! 


Always Waggy Tails are a  friendly, family run Dog Walking & Pet Services business that aim to give your pet the same love & affection you do when you cant be there for them.  We have had many pets over the years, from German Shepherds & Poodles, to cross breeds, several cats, bunnies, fish & a hamster to name but a few!

We regularly train our pack at The Essex Dog Training Centre (home of the Essex Dog Display Team) & at the Barking Dog Training Club & have even been lucky enough to win some awards over the last few years including; Presidents Shield, Handler of the year, Dedication award, Dog & handler of the year & most promising Dog.  In fact the first time we visited the E.D.T.C was over 20 years ago.  Time really does fly when you're having fun!  We are also involved in The Kennel Club's 'Good Citizen Dog Scheme'.

There are many parks & even a nature reserve close by, which provide us different places to walk your dog(s).  Whether you prefer us to walk on or off lead, there is enough open space for a good run with plenty of new smells to investigate along the way.  If you're a little further away, we will always try to walk your dog in a park closer to you.  We offer a variety of other services from house sitting to pet taxi & all we ask is a short meeting with you first to ensure we are fully aware of your (& your pets!) needs & requirments.  Unlike some other Dog walking/house sitting businesses, your consultation with us is completely free of charge.

Please click on 'Services' for a more detailed description of each service we offer.

Always Waggy Tails are fully insured & CRB checked for your peace of mind.  We also hold a certificate in Canine First Aid awarded by Writtle College & in Dog handling, training & transportation.

As professional dog walkers, Always Waggy Tails will obey all related laws, bylaws, dog control orders & codes of conduct enforced whilst out walking, visiting, transporting or boarding your pet(s).
