Reviews from Our Guests
Our dog, a crazy beagle has stayed with Trudi and Duncan 3 times now. I would highly recommend them. I was nervous about leaving her the first time but I needn't have worried. I had regular updates about her and she had a great time. She is very well looked after when she goes there and they are clearly dog lovers.

My dog had another stay at Duncan and Trudies house. I was sent photos and messages about how she was getting on . She is looked after like their own dogs. Fab place and lovely people. Thank you both .

Our cocker spaniel Nala stayed with Duncan and Trudy for 8 days whilst we were away on holiday, this was the first time she had been away from us for more than a night, and we felt anxious leaving her unsure of how she would react. It's safe to say she settled in right away! We received photo's and videos regular that were reassuring showing how much fun she was having! She was looked after so well and we will definitely be booking with yourselves again, thank you so much both.
From Chloe on
Poppy stayed with Trudi & Duncan for just one night and we were quite anxious as we hadn't left her with anyone before. She soon settled in with the other pooches and we were sent photo updates of her stay, which was reassuring. Very grateful to Trudi & Duncan for taking very good care of our fur baby. Thank you!
From Andrea & David on
My dog has been with Trudi and Ducan for 3 weeks in July-August. First experience for my 1 year and half old Yorkshire terrier, a challenge that Trudi accepted without hesitation, showing her sincere passion for animals and professionality.
Our little one enjoyed the experience and arrived back with glowing coat and lots of friends.
Highly recommended considering if you love your pets and want them to enjoy a home away from home!
Ray will be back soon!

We have just picked up our cocker spaniel Alfie from Trudi and Duncan's , it's the first time we have left Alfie and we were a bit apprehensive, we were sent regular updates and photos which put our mind at ease to know that he was being so well looked after we will not hesitate to use K9 paws and tails home boarding again a truly lovely couple
From Jonathan and Linda on
First time we had left Milo for more than one night. He was with Trudie and Duncan for 5 days and enjoyed mixing with the other dogs.
We were sent regular photos and updates about him.
This was very reassuring, as we were a bit apprehensive about leaving him.
We will definitely leave him there again, if needed.
Thanks very much Trudie and Duncan. XX
From Paula Jackson on
I was very pleased with the lovely treatment my labrador Riley recieved. Trudi and Duncan give him reassurance whilst I'm in hospital at periodic times and as soon as I mention they're names he gets excited to go and stay with them which assures me that's hes happy. They give 5star treatment and I recommend them to all who needs their dog to stay with them, a great couple.
From Nicki Roberts on
Trudi and Duncan looked after our Cockerpoo Penny when I was rushed into hospital, very short notice and this was no trouble at all for them. Penny had a great time and loved staying. Since this we have used the service again and again, wouldn't use anywhere else and highly recommend.

From Ian jones on
Fanatic service from Trudi & Duncan. We have a little puppy and was very anxious over leaving her. It was her first time leaving us/home and l was concerned to how Lola would be. But we was not disappointed, our little Lola had the best time. We received pictures and updates throughout the whole weekend. She had the best time! I was very reassured and will defiantly be choosing paws and tails to look after our pooch on our next get away. Thank you so much again xx
From Sian Beesley on
Trudi & Duncan looked after my pet Leo whilst my family and I went away. From dropping off my Leo I felt reassured and confident he would be well looked after. They even sent me a little picture while I was away showing how happy he was. I will most definitely be using there service again. Thank for taking such good care of him.
