Dog Walking

Always Waggy Tails Dog walkers have a love of the outdoors, as well as your four-legged friends.  We are not 'fair weather walkers', so you can rest assured your dog(s) will have a good walk come sun, rain, wind or snow!

Each handler will only walk a maximum of 4 dogs at any one time (no matter how big or small!), to ensure each dog gets our full attention.  We are also able to offer 'solo walks' for less sociable dogs, or for those that prefer 'one-on-one' time with their human!

Walks last between 30-60 minutes (not including collection or travel time).  Dont worry if you're not home as we're fully insured key holders & CRB checked for your peace of mind.  After the walk we can drop your dog home, make sure they're settled & even set your alarm before we leave.

Whether your dog needs a walk every day, every other day, once a week or just now & again if your're not feeling up to it, Always Waggy Tails are happy to help.  After an initial meeting with you & your dog(s) at home, to discuss their (& your!) requirments, we are only a phone call away.

We cover many areas, including; Dagenham, Becontree, Chadwell Heath, Goodmayes, Central Romford & Barking.  If your district isn't listed please dont hesitate to contact us, as we cover many other areas, so may still be able to help.  If you're outside our 3 mile radius a small fuel surcharge of £1 per mile may be added.

If you recommend us to a friend or family member that uses our service for a 60 minute walk, you will receive a 50% discount from your next walk with us.  We also offer a block-booking discount, an OAP discount, plus discounts for current members of either The Essex Dog Training Centre or The Barking Dog Training Club.  Please contact us for more details on these offers.

All dogs must have up to date vaccinations/boosters, but we are unable to walk bitches in season, dogs/puppies under 6 months old or any dogs from (including any part-bred from) the uk 'banned dog' list (Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, Fila Braziliero).

 

Pet Taxi

Always Waggy Tails provide safe, comfortable transport of your pets in our custom built van.  Inside of which are professionally designed, tailor-made cages offering maximum height & space for your pets, including two points of exit should the unthinkable happen.  From a short trip to the vets, longer journeys to the airport or even a family relocation, we can help transport your pet in comfort & safety.

 

House Visits/Pet Feeding

If you work long hours, planning a day trip, a weekend away, or even a holiday & can't impose on friends & family, Always Waggy Tails can arrange one or more visits to your home to break up your pets day.  This can help prevent a build up of stress & boredom, which can quite often lead to destructive behaviour.  These visits arent just to help those of you with dogs/puppies.  We mustn't forget about our feline friends, or our other smaller pets & wildlife that also don't like to be left 'home alone'.

If your pet is recovering from an illness, we are happy to administer any medication required, or just give them some love & affection; Amongst other things we can;  Play with your pet; Let your dog/puppy out in the garden for a toilet break; Clean litter tray or cage; Re-plenish water; Give food & even re-fill the bird feeder!  We can even open/close blinds, bring in the post & water the plants.  We also keep a record of events during our visits for your convenience.

As with all our services, an initial 'home meeting' with you & your pet(s) is required to discuss your needs.  After which, we are only a phone call away.

 

House Sitting

For those of us that wish our pets could stay at home rather than be left in a kennel or cattery, Always Waggy Tails house sitting service can help give you that peace of mind whilst on holiday or away on business.  This enables your pet to reamin in their own home & familiar surroundings, avoiding major disruption to their daily routine.  It also gives the added comfort knowing your home isnt empty, therefore less vulnerable to crime in your absence.  We are fully insured, CRB checked & treat your house & pet(s) with the same care & consideration you would yourself.  As well as house sitting & looking after your pet(s), we can also take in the mail, put out rubbish, water plants, keep the bird feeders well stocked & generally help to make your house look 'lived in'.  As with our 'Pet Sitting' Service, we also keep a record of events during our stay.

 

Home Boarding/Daycare

Always Waggy Tails Home Boarding & Daycare Service, welcomes your much-loved pet into our homes & provides them with a house-to-house environment that minimises separation anxiety.  No matter how good a kennel, it is still a kennel.  Home Boarding/Daycare takes away all this stress from your dogs, as they are treated as one of the family in the same way they would be at home.  Their routine is continued as normal, daily exercise included, plus they are in a home environment in which they thrive. Nervous dogs, puppies, old dogs and pampered dogs can all benefit from home boarding and/or Daycare.

Only sociable, castrated/spayed pets with up to date vaccinations will be considered for these services.
