Shortly after getting our little Jack Russell puppy, Tess, I needed to find someone who could look after her when I had to go out. My job can be unpredictable at times and appointments can change suddenly, so I also needed someone who could be flexible.

I spent some time on the internet looking for 'doggy day-care' and I came across the Nobletails website. I loved the website and the gallery had loads of photos of very happy dogs enjoying a good time on the Wimbledon Common. I decided to give them a call and see if, at short notice, they could accommodate my 12 week old puppy for a few hours each day.

I spoke to Mark and he was so helpful. He arranged to come around and see me and Tess the same day! Tess loved Mark and the following week when he came to collect her, she was only too happy to go with him.

Mark was wonderful at keeping me informed about how Tess was each day, and he even sent me puppy update photos, which definitely brightened up my working day.

Mark is always punctual, friendly and reliable; and the dogs love him. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark if you are looking for a great doggy day-care service!!!

Mark has been walking Baxter since he was a puppy, looked after him whilst we were abroad and the occasional day-care. It has been reassuring to know that Baxter is being looked after by people that understand dogs, care about their well-being and care about my property.

Mark has been very flexible and accommodating at short notice. Baxter's response when he sees Mark or Lee suggests he feels the same way!

I would not hesitate to recommend Nobletails, they are a professional, reliable and caring company. Thank-you both.

I was found on the street 6 years ago and taken to Battersea Dog's Home, I was about 18 months old. When my new owners took me home with them, I was rather confused about how to behave and took a while to learn what is acceptable! I am pretty reliable now but can still have my moments!

Nobletails have walked me and I have been to stay with Mark on many occasions in the last 6 years.

Luckily, Mark has always been brilliant at understanding me and avoiding any problems, he is never phased by anything and always calm and in control.

He has his own dog and we get on well so I am always desperate to climb in the van, and he knows I like the front seat best!
My owners are very happy and confident leaving me in Mark's care. Sometimes they do not give Mark much notice, he has never let them down, never making a fuss and always cheerfully saving the day!


I have been a client of Mark's for almost 7 years and rate him highly for his professionalism; reliability and total dedication to the welfare of the dogs.

Come rain or shine he will always deliver!

Bonnie and Bracken love being with him and when they board I have complete piece of mind.

Nobletails is an important part of the Halligan family's smooth operation! I recommend him highly.

As a family with a chaotic lifestyle who want to do our best for Harry, we are indebted to Mark and his team. He always answers ‘yes’ which is wonderful for both Harry and us. Thank you to Mark for many years of dog walking, dog looking after and rescuing us when in a tight fix. Harry is a very happy dog.

Our dog, Jess, was very nervous when she first came to us and Mark has been fantastic in building her confidence. She is now almost completely blind and we know that she is always well cared for. She loves her walks and sleepovers and we won't leave her with anyone else!
