The UKs most ethical pet care business opportunity: the only choice for dog lovers!

We offer home dog boarding for dog lovers who want the reassurance that their dog is being cared for in a loving family home when they go away.

Wagging Tails provides dog owners with the very best care for their dogs in a loving home environment meaning that both dog and owner can relax and enjoy a happy holiday. Our franchise opportunity is your chance to join a successful multi award winning network running a home based business, doing something you love, in the rapidly growing pet care industry.

Wagging Tails is the only pet care franchise that is both a full member of the British Franchise Association and  “Buy with Confidence” Trading Standards Approved meaning that all of our documentation and working practises have been independently assessed, verified and approved twice over!

This, combined with over 10 years experience, a proven network of successful, award winning franchisees (and franchisor) and unrivalled training and support makes Wagging Tails offering the UK’s most ethical, honest and lucrative dog care opportunity available.

BENEFITS TO YOU: 

  • The only pet care brand that is “Buy with Confidence” Trading Standards Approved
  • Unrivalled on-going training support from an experienced franchisor who has actively run the business and possesses first hand knowledge and experience of delivering this service.
  • Corporate partnership with national charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
  • Regular repeat custom
  • High earning potential in a growth area of the £4bn pet care industry
  • Work with your dogs by your side
  • No commuting; you plan your schedule and when you will be out and about.
  • A truly home based business giving you the flexibility to create the ideal work/life balance.

 “I liked the idea of running my own business, but I’m no Alan Sugar, so the idea of a franchise appealed to me. I looked through many different opportunities. As a dog lover Wagging Tails really stood for me. It was an established, successful and, importantly, ethical business.

I’m proud of what we’ve achieved and the service we offer and I can honestly say it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!”

Kevin Wright, Wagging Tails Hertfordshire Franchisee.
