Sarah has been looking after my 14 year old Border Terrier, Ollie, for over 5 years. Regular daycare and when we go on holiday for two and three weeks at a time. Ollie has become part of the family and I don't worry about him at all. Sarah knows and accommodates all his funny little habits. In fact, he looks forward to staying and getting spoilt!

Very friendly and lovely family. They had our lab for a week whilst we were on holiday. Won't hesitate to use Sarah again. Our dog had a lovely time and we got updates on him throughout the week! Couldn't ask for a better service!!

Indi has many walks, weekends and holidays with Sarah and I think she is happier there than at home! Sarah takes her on such lovely walks and to lots of different places. She is so well looked after and above all, so loved by the whole family. They treat her like their own and I trust her implicity. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Thumping Tails to anyone who wants home from home for their animals or fabulous fun walks!

This is Henry my doggie and he wants to highly recommend his Auntie Sarah holiday home. He had a lovely time and apologies for his sometimes slightly naughty behaviour. He sends his love to Gypsy, the girls and to all his other playmates. He looks forward to his next holiday.

My 6 month old boxer puppy Toby has just spent 2 weeks with Sarah and her family and I would like to say how pleased I am! To say I didn't want to leave him with anyone while still so young is an understatement but Sarah made it really easy, I left feeling confident he was in good hands and it left me able to enjoy my holiday. I have had him back a few hours and he has clearly been well taken care of and I know Sarah and her family have treated him as one of their own and he has just slotted back in at home as though he hasn't been away. I went looking for a family environment for him (desperate not to have to kennel him so young) with a patient experienced person who would give him the time and attention he needed and perhaps some doggy friends and Thumping Tails has exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended

Fern has just spent her first week away with Sarah and had a fantastic time! Sarah and her family are very caring and being able to see pictures of Fern on Facebook was reassuring for us. Can't recommend Sarah enough and will use her again!

Bella has just come home from her 1 st stay with Sarah and I couldn't be happier . Such a lovely lady and felt at ease leaving bella with her for a few days.

Our girl had a great stay with Thumping Tails. Lovely walks and much playing with her new furry and human friends. She was very relaxed on her return and clearly had a great time. Much thanks to Sarah for the love, care and play which has made her stay a very happy one. Great home from home.
