Wagtales guarantees to give your dog the same amount of love and attention that we give our own.
There's nothing nicer than seeing your dog curled up and snoozing contentedly after fun, games and a great long walk.
While dogs need daily exercise in order to stay healthy, for many people it's not always possible to walk their pets regularly. That's why we established Wagtales, to help people across Manchester ensure their dogs live happy lives.
For over 9 years Wagtales has specialised in using positive reinforcement to help dogs socialise with one another, play and enjoy new sights, smells and get lots of mental stimulation. Not only do we work with individual dogs to figure out their wants and needs, we also tailor each walk to ensure the pack gets along and has a great time. We do ask that all dogs are fully vaccinated and are always up-to date with worm and flea treatments.
To ensure we provide the best service possible, our team of experienced and trained dog handlers regularly takes part in seminars to learn about dog behaviour, body language and diet.
What Dog Lovers Say
Wagtales has supported hundreds of satisfied dog owners across Manchester. Take a look at just a few of our glowing testimonials below.
"Wagtales provides an amazing service"
Our 2 pugs absolutely love Gemma and the other girls at Wagtales. They are always really excited when they get picked up to go out on their walks. Wagtales provides an amazing service that we really couldn't live without! I recommend them to everyone, its so comforting to know you're dogs are happy & out and about via FB and Twitter while you're at work!

"Wouldn't trust anyone else looking after my doggy"
Wouldn't trust anyone else looking after my doggy. Think this is the 7th year George has been walked by Gemma and co - thank you.

"The dogs adore the team"
I am a very happy customer of Wagtales who care for my dogs whilst I am in town. The dogs adore the team, who have always shown the utmost understanding and respect of the breed and of dog husbandry/behaviours/psychology/body language as a whole. It was this knowledge, professionalism and willingness to listen to me as the owner regarding each dogs individual personality that made Wagtales really stand out and why I have no hesitation in singing their praises and recommending them.

"We couldn't be happier"
We have been using Wagtales since our puppy was about four months old, and we couldn’t be happier! Not only have we had super advice from Gemma, Ella, Natalie and Tess, but the way Willow is developing after just two months of puppy visits is fabulous. Soon she’ll be ready to join in the big girl (group) walks! After each visit we receive a report card that lets us know how the visit has been, and they are a very sweet thing to come home to. Quite often we’ll see photos of Willow on the Wagtales Instagram page too, which always makes us smile! The support behind the scenes that I have received from the girls has been invaluable. I would recommend Wagtales to anyone who needed a bit of extra help and support with puppies or dogs - their knowledge is extensive and their caring natures are second to none.
