Tracie - Founder & owner

Located right by Arandene fields in Mill Hill, Waggingtons is the only Home from Home dog care service you will ever need. With more than 25 years of caring for dogs through rescue centres and other charitable animal welfare organisations, Tracie set up Waggingtons in 2005, one of the very first licensed and insured premises to exist in London.


As a home-run business, Tracie’s passion for the welfare and wellbeing of her dogs has always been at the core of Waggingtons’ values and with a thorough vetting process, owners are ensured the best possible experience. Her unique insight into dog behaviour has earned Tracie a reputation as one of the most trusted dog carers in North London - Just read our reviews!

What we offer

Part of the everyday routine includes two daily one-hour walks around our local woodlands - Arrandene Fields, along with supervised play and constant guidance inside the house and our large garden. Each dog that joins the Waggingtons’ clan instantly becomes part of the family. Just watch them running towards our front door on your next visit!


Under continual supervision, dogs of all ages and sizes are encouraged to socialise together, ensuring they become confident and well adjusted, learning from each other whilst receiving a bespoke and personal level of care from our qualified and passionate team.

What Makes us different

Waggingtons is unique in its ability to offer a complete package of daycare and boarding in a home environment, unlike any other service around. As we get to know your dog, we are also able to highlight any issues and quickly work on correcting and guiding behaviour using only positive methods, practised by us all. 

As a separate service we can also work with you on a one to one basis, helping you gain the necessary skills and confidence needed for a wonderful, on-going relationship with your dog. 
Building trust is the key to achieving this outcome so let us show you how!

Waggingtons' mission

Waggingtons maintains its great reputation for the safety and well being of all dogs in its care by having a team member constantly watching and guiding their behaviour, making sure each one feels loved and safe. Dogs are never left alone, thereby ensuring a happy and safe environment for all. 


With daily walks in open spaces, plenty of play, rest and constant love and attention, your precious pooch will thrive under our care, whether its’ for doggy day care or overnight boarding. We offer you, the owner, complete peace of mind knowing that your dog is enjoying their holiday too.


Our criteria

We happily take on puppies from 10 weeks old, after first vaccinations and all dogs, over the age of one, must be spayed or neutered with up-to-date vaccinations including kennel cough. Regular worming and flea treatments must also be given.


Due to our operational constraints, Waggingtons, therefore, reserves the right to refuse any dog. We are unable to service certain breeds regardless of their individual loveliness.


We are a proud member of the ‘Association of Dog Boarders’.

Come and see for yourselves by arranging a visit

For your visit

We offer a free ‘meet and greet’ for all dogs ahead of your first booking. This allows for complete transparency and compatibility to make everyone feel at ease.

Visits take place seven days a week between 11am and 12:30pm and usually last 20-30mins. 

Next we’ll set up a trial day to see how your dog fits in without you there.

For overnight boarding bookings, we recommend a trial night ahead of their first stay.

During high holidays and holy days, advanced bookings are recommended and we give priority to daycare clients.
