Our Story

Established in 2008

Hi, I’m Julie, I started my career with dogs after I trained as a groomer, once qualified I opened my dog grooming salon Shampooches working with many different breeds of dogs with varying temperaments.   Although it was very rewarding I decided I would like to learn more about our four legged furry friends and in 2016 Tails of Tilehurst was born.

 To ensure your pet receives the best possible care I have completed numerous dog related qualifications and regularly attend courses, seminars and workshops to keep up to date with existing and new modern training methods which are constantly evolving.

I am a member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT), and have an Open College Network (OCN) Level Three in Principles of Dog Training and Behaviour. I am a qualified Groomer, Pet First Aider and currently studying Dog Psychology and Behaviours.

Our family....

Hey, I’m Jess, my Mum has always owned and worked with dogs so it was only natural after spending time as a dog bather in our grooming business and completing a two year Animal Management Course at Basingstoke College I decided to join the family business.   

The love of my life is my Scoodle called Dave. He came from Many Tears Dog Rescue and was hand fed because he was too small to be fed by his mother. He is now fit, healthy, and full of beans and adores all of his dog walking buddies.

When you entrust your pet to our care, they will be looked after as if they were our own. We pride ourselves on giving the best possible service and care to our clients both canine and human.

Hear it straight from the 'dogs' mouth.....

Neville, our Kromfohrlander puppy has just completed a 6 week puppy course with Julie. He’s benefited massively from the sessions, as have his loyal Assistants who are first time dog owners. Julie explains things in a simple and clear manner and has the dogs best interests always at the forefront. We also booked two 1-2-1 sessions where Julie came to our house to work with Nev individually, again, I’d really recommend 1-2-1’s for new to owners.

Julie walks my dogs daily. They are happy, calm and contented when I arrive home.

Have absolutely loved puppy training classes, so much fun and so many tips! It’s helped a huge amount with focus and direction, and Monday’s have now become my favourite day of the week! I don’t want the course to end!
