“Our two dogs stayed with Victoria for 2 weeks while we went away. They love stopping with her, she is full of affection for them, it’s a real home from home. They get spoilt rotten lol! Much better than kennels! As an added bonus Victoria also does grooming so they came home looking gorgeous. They will definitely be visiting again”

I just wanted to thank you for looking after my two Labrador boys so well whilst we had our holiday. Your photo updates and videos were lovely and enabled us to enjoy our holiday knowing someone was looking after them. They certainly enjoyed their stay and the ‘lab’ diaries were also hilarious. I’m sure that the ‘demon chihuahua’ will feature in many more tales.
Good quality and registered home-boarding services are hard to find!
Wags, Woofs and Whiskers is a little gem that provides excellent care, knowledge, love and stimulation for our four-legged companions; and give us humans the peace of mind that they are being properly cared for within a home-setting.
I have no hesitation in recommending ‘the very nice lady’ Victoria, and will be using her again.”

“Remy went to stay with Vicky for 3 weeks while we went to meet Daddy’s family in India for the first time. To add to the stress of visas, a new country and crazy family, Mummy was also worried about leaving her very spoilt fur baby with a stranger for 3 weeks.
Within 5 minutes of meeting Vicky, one massive weight was lifted with promises of love, care and lots of treats. In the first meeting, Remy decided he liked Vicky’s so much, he would mark it as his own. But ever the professional, Vicky took it in her stride with her handy kitchen roll and carpet spray! Much to mummy’s relief, even this performance didn’t cancel the booking.
On drop off day, Remy was greeted with so much love, hugs and treats that when it came to saying goodbye, he gave one look over his shoulder and strutted off to explore the living room. Daddy was very hurt. Mummy was just relieved Daddy was the one crying not Remy.
Throughout the 3 weeks, we had multiple daily updates with lots of pictures and videos (even when Vicky’s phone was destroyed) and could see how much fun Remy was having. Vicky even spent the whole 3 weeks sleeping downstairs on the sofa with Remy to keep up his usual routine of sleeping with his pack.
Needless to say when we returned, after the initial excitement, Remy did not want to leave. It turns out he had an even better holiday than Mummy and Daddy, had made new friends, learnt some new tricks and definitely gained some holiday “pounds”.
We would not hesitate to send Remy on another Vicky-holiday. The service she offered was beyond anything I could have imagined. She looked after and spoilt Remy as if he was her own, reassured us, and even helped us out with some doggy day care on our return. Vicky will forever remain on our speed dial and I know Remy can’t wait for the next time Mummy and Daddy go away.”

“Hi Vikki, I just wanted to thank you for looking after my fur babies so well over the last week. Your updates and videos were just lovely and enabled us to enjoy our holiday knowing someone was watching them and caring for them. I know Pippin has missed his cuddles with you. He looks disappointed to see me and not you!!! I will be using you again when we are away. You have been fantastic.”
Michelle the owner of Pippin, Poppy, Dolly & Holly
“Milly, our 8-year-old Springer has just got back from spending 2 weeks with Vicky. She was exhausted after having so much love and attention. We received regular updates, photos, and videos which were lovely and clearly showed how much fun she was having and how much she was being spoiled!
We dropped her off with a few toys and 2 tennis balls and she came home with a whole bag full of balls which Vicky treated her to once she discovered how happy they make her.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Vicky and will definitely be using her services again. Many thanks again, and a special thank you from Milly xx”

“Having booked my holiday and then bought a puppy,🙄 I was desperate for someone to look after Gracie while I was on holiday on a one to one basis as she would be 5 months old when I went away. I felt that she was too young to pop into kennels!!
I was recommended to Victoria by a lady in Trentham who had used her before and gave a really good recommendation. I met Victoria and straight away my Gracie took to her. I never looked back as Victoria took real good care of her sending videos and photos daily while I was on holiday. I’ve used her a couple of times since and would highly recommend this young woman to anyone who wants to leave their precious pet on a one to one basis while on holiday.”
Tina owner of Gracie the Zuchon
“Vicky is amazing, and fantastic with my Maine Coon, Henry. I got in touch with Vicky when I needed to have someone look after Henry on occasions when work has me staying away from home. Sometimes at short notice. Vicky was more than happy to step in and look after him and has formed an incredible bond. She quickly worked out his mannerisms and knows how important updates are to me so I always get lots of videos and pictures.
Vicky not only feeds and plays with him but also takes care of his litter tray and any accidents he may have.
It is wonderful to know that I have someone I can trust, look after him, whilst I am away and missing him terribly.
I can’t recommend Vicky enough to anyone after a pet sitter.”
Catherine – Owner of Henry the Maine Coon
“Finding someone to look after our beloved Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bertie we thought would be a straightforward process, given the large amount of local advertisements for pet sitters etc; little did we realise how wrong we were – until we were fortunate enough to find WAGS, WOOFS AND WHISKERS, and meet the wonderful Victoria.
From the point of first contact, we had excellent and prompt communication (which is something other companies should note) and it was lovely how we were kept constantly updated of Bertie’s welfare throughout his care, Victoria even sending us pictures to show how well he was doing in her company.
We found Victoria to be genuine, extremely professional and trustworthy (we left our house keys with her, as she looked after Bertie in his own home while we were away) yet, the quality that stood out above all was the passion required to oversee her valuable ward. We needed someone we completely trusted, (since he was born Bertie has never left our side) and Victoria came through more than trumps. Victoria has a brilliant reciprocity with the animals left in her charge, and her diligence allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our stay away from home and return to a totally un-traumatised dog.
We are not ones generally prone to giving reviews, or unwarranted praise, but as the title of this review states, we received 5 Star ‘Awesomeness’ and have no hesitation in more than recommending the services of WAGS, WOOFS AND WHISKERS. In fact, we’re already looking to our next holiday and Bertie his, staying with his new found friend – Victoria”

“Vikki looked after our 2 Boxers Kiki and Buster & our 2 horses Jane and George, while we were away on holiday for a week. Our dogs were so well cared for and she watered, fed, mucked out and administered medicine to George & Jane.
She literally couldn’t do enough for us, even going as far as to get us a loaf and fresh milk for our return! Service is so easy and so friendly. Perfect for a stress-free holiday! Thanks again Vikki”
