Why Wagtales?

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 for over 13 years ensure their dogs live happy lives, and now are doing the same for dogs in Chorley and surrounding areas.

For 14 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 experienced and trained dog handlers regularly takes part in seminars and courses to learn about canine behaviour, body language and diet. Dogs health and well-being are paramount to us long term. We don't just look after your dog, we truly care about everyone of our pooch pack.

"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.

"A Fantastic Team"

I’ve been using Wagtales for a few years now. They have always given the best care for my dogs. This included medical treatment assistance for my elderly dog, as well as great fun walks for my younger dog. A fantastic team of support and genuine care.

"Best choice we made"

Absolutely the best for dog walks; our dog Frida is always looking forward to her walk, and it helps her so much with her socialising. Everyone from Wagtales is always there to help and is happy to advice if needed. Best choice we made!

"First class professional service"

First class professional service. Reggie loves his walks and home visits and especially the cuddles he gets! They truly get to know your dog, their needs and personality. This builds enormous trust. You can wholeheartedly relax knowing you pooch is more than just cared for… they are loved. I would wholeheartedly recommend Wagtales without reservation.
