We offer a home away from home experience at 'Tail Towers', which is especially suited to dogs for whom staying in boarding kennels is not ideal. We accept a maximum of ten dogs to allow each animal to have their own spaces when required. Please note that we are unable to accept dogs that are uncastrated / not spayed, or over 12kg, or under six months of age.

At Tail Towers, your dog will be kept company by not only us, but our resident animals, and will therefore need to be socialised with both dogs and cats.

All daycare and boarding bookings are only confirmed upon completion of a successful trial (the cost of which is €22.50 for daycare and €50 for overnight boarding).

DOG WALKING

We understand there is not a one size fits all approach, although we generally walk dogs in packs no bigger than three. Each breed and each dog is different, as is their exercise requirements. We are comfortable and experienced with very active walks, walking large dogs or dogs with behavioural issues who require strong leash skills. During extreme weather, we will always attend to your pet so they can relieve themselves. We will then make a judgement as to whether they are comfortable walking in the conditions, and if needed, we will return them home early, spending the remainder of the appointment ensuring they are dry and entertained with cuddles and play time instead.

DAYCARE

Are you stuck on conference calls all day with no time to interact with your pooch? Does your dog have separation anxiety? Or do they just want some furry friends to play with? Our day care service at Tail Towers can help you in all of these scenarios. Drop off is between 0800-0830 or after 0930, and collection is before 1800. We offer local clients (1054 postcode) a pick up and drop off service (subject to availability). Please note we cannot accept dogs over 12kg, or uncastrated males.

OVERNIGHT BOARDING

Are you going out of town, whether that be for one night, a weekend or on a longer holiday? The team at Tail Towers have many clients for whom we provide overnight care. We also provide an in-home service for local clients (postcodes 1016, 1054, 1053 and 1071). Your dog will be walked according to their usual walk schedule and kept company for the majority of the evening and throughout the night. We ensure there is ample time built in for play and tickles, as well as observing your dog’s regular feeding timetable. We will also happily water plants, take in mail, and ensure your home is found exactly how you left it. We can also pick up basic groceries so that your return home is as smooth as possible. Included in any overnight stay, whether it be in-home or at Tails Towers is a morning walk on the day of your return home. Should you require care beyond this our standard day care rate will be applied. Please note we do not offer boarding for cats at Tails Towers.

PET SITTING

Tails of the City was not created to solely cater to dogs, and we feel fortunate to count cats, rodents, reptiles and birds on our client list too. We offer one or two home visits per day, with each appointment lasting at least 30 minutes. However we pride ourselves on being flexible, so if you require each visit to be longer, or would like to have multiple visits per day, please do contact us for a bespoke quote. We also offer in-home overnight care for your pet if required. During our visit, we will feed and water your pet, clean litter boxes and cages and ensure there’s enough time left over for the all-important play time so your pet stays stimulated. We can also open and close curtains, turn lights on and off and anything else required to help with security.

VET / GROOMING VISITS

Does your cat need to go to the vet for their annual vaccinations, but the only slot available is inconvenient for you? Has your dog been to the vet and now requires a follow up consultation, but you have an important work meeting that you can’t miss? Is your dog’s hair getting so long people are starting to think he’s joined a rock band? Panic not, the team at Tail Towers are here to help you. We will collect your pet and take them to their appointment before delivering them back home with confirmation of any medication / follow up instructions.
REGISTRATION PROCESS

Please send all enquiries using the 'Contact' form on this website. Once we confirm our availability, you will be asked to complete an online registration, during which you will be asked to sign your agreement to our terms and conditions. Please read these carefully as they contain details of your obligations with regards to required vaccinations and insurances etc.

Tails of the City take the responsibility of looking after other people’s pets very seriously, which is why we offer all prospective clients a no-obligation introductory meeting to follow up on your online registration and to discuss your needs in detail. For dog walking and pet sitting clients, this meeting will take place in your home. For daycare or boarding clients, a trial at Tail Towers is carried out to ensure your pet is a good fit with our environment and resident animals (the cost of which is €22.50 daycare / €50 overnight).

You will then receive an email confirmation of your pet’s registration with Tails of the City. Once registration is complete, you can make bookings, amendments and cancellations via email or a Whatsapp group that Team Tails will create for your primary caregivers to send through updates from our time with your pet.
