Where Dogs Are Family!

A Happy Bunch of Dogs

Our Standard Schnauzer Gustav had the opportunity to spend a couple days with Evonne, and a happy bunch of other dogs. Evonne shared many photos of Gustav playing and just simply enjoying his stay, allowing me to relax knowing Gustav was in good hands. I will definitely have Gustav spend time with Evonne again; she cares and loves her animals, makes them feel welcome in her pack, but also gives them lots of individual attention.

Fantastic

Evonne was fantastic! Received pictures of my dog all throughout the day, and he seems to have had a great time!

Surpassed all of my expectations!

We were visiting out from of town on New Year Day with a last minute change of plans. Evonne thankfully replied to our request within minutes and we scheduled to meet her within the hour. My fur baby Kiki was in her care for just 5 hours and even so we were provided with several updates and photos to reassure us everything was splendid. Kiki even got a venison treat after dinner provided by Evonne which was mindful of her chicken/beef allergy. Evonne is so sweet and legitimately surpassed all of my expectations. Should I return to her area I would feel fortunate to book my pup’s stay with her again.

Evonne is kind to all animals, but she does not spoil them.

I have known Evonne since 1982. She has been an animal person, and a dog lover, all of her life. When we were married we had many pets, and two wonderful dogs. I was resistant to dogs, but she won me over. Our second dog, Rose, was a rescue that had been abused by her person. It took time and patience, but Evonne made Rose’s life infinitely better. Evonne is kind to all animals, but she does not spoil them. Our dogs were trained gently and loved. Our cats and rabbits had it good too.

Evonne is amazing!

Turning from the door after leaving my dog, Choco, did I ever feel the need to look back to make the final check that my baby was ok. Evonne is amazing with all animals, especially dogs. She is loving, gets down on the ground and doesn’t mind a bit if she gets a mini shower from an excited dog tongue greeting her. Yet she is wise and knowledgeable. She had to break the news to me, gently mind you that my Papillon Choco was overweight and that I was the cause because I was giving too many treats. I needed to hear that. During the work day, Evonne would send beautiful photos of Choco that would brighten my day knowing he was having a fabulous day at daycare. Pick up time is always the best. Of course you get your baby back and Evonne always always has a personal anecdote to share. It reminded me of when I would pick up my own daughter from daycare. Her attention to detail, safety and love is something you would expect from a child daycare not necessarily a doggy daycare. But with Evonne, every doggy and doggy moment is precious to her. Honestly, I wouldn’t take my dog anywhere else, and I still haven’t since she moved Tucson. We miss Evonne and her lovable and welcoming pooches, Lucy and Riley. I hope that you are fortunate enough to find Evonne and secure a place in her daycare. Evonne is not in this business for anything else other than enjoying the pure thrill of hanging out with dogs all-day-long! We Love and miss all of you. Love
You always, Kristie and Choco.

I highly recommend Evonne

I have known Evonne for over 10 years. We met in the dog park. I’ve always admired her passion, caring, positive approach, knowledge and patience with dogs. Evonne was a grammar school teacher for over 30 years, I believe her vast knowledge and experience with young children will benefit her greatly with her dog care business. I highly recommend Evonne.

HAPPINESS!!

SO I HAVE BEEN A DOG OWNER FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I USED A DOGSITTING SERVICE. AFTER 3 MINUTES, I STOPPED CALLING IT A SERVICE AT EVONNE’S WAGGIN’ TAIL INN. MY DOG, FRIDA, WAS SO HAPPY TO HAVE FRIENDS TO RUN AROUND AND PLAY WITH, AND EVONNE IS A PASSIONATE, CARING PERSON. IT WARMS MY HEART TO KNOW THAT EVONNE IS IN TUCSON, AND I CAN TRAVEL WITH NOT ONLY ZERO STRESS AND WORRYING, BUT ALSO KNOWING THAT FRIDA IS IN A SUMMER CAMP SETTING AND SO HAPPY.

Above and Beyond

My husband and I rarely have the need for a sitter for our two Beagle sisters, but given we were only going to be gone a couple of nights, we had Evonne take them in, after an initial meet and greet. I don’t think we had boarded our plane before the first photo arrived, which gave us a lot of comfort, as did all the other photos and captions that followed. We had the utmost faith and belief that our girls were being cared for and in good hands. Waggin’ Tail Inn/Evonne provided a peace of mind we had never before experienced and she set the bar high for what dog daycare and boarding should be! Thank you so much, Evonne……..you are the best!

Evonne is the BEST!!!!

I’m so proud of Evonne, I’ve watched her business grow. She absolutely loves the dogs that are in her care and takes her job very seriously. She uses her teaching skills with children and translates them to the dogs. ‘Now JoJo, Jacob has asked you nicely to leave him alone, you need to listen to him.”, and somehow the dogs seem to understand what she is saying! Evonne is amazing! I love how she sends her clients pictures of their dogs so they can see that their dogs are doing fine and are happy.
I highly recommend Evonne for your dogs and your peace of mind.

Waggin’ Tail Inn is always my first choice for doggie care.

My dog, Skyler, is a frequent short-term and long-term guest at Waggin’ Tail Inn. He loves to visit Miss Evonne and his friends there. Skyler is part Lhasa Apso which is the “palace dog” breed. His Auntie won’t let him sleep on her pillow at home, but Evonne lets him, and sent me a picture. She sends pictures and updates throughout the day, so I can see what a good time Skyler is having, and who his playmates are. These updates were so reassuring to me when I was on a three-week cross-country trip in June. Every day Evonne’s adorably captioned updates allowed me the peace of mind to thoroughly enjoy my vacation knowing Skyler was being so well cared for. Skyler can’t be left alone at home, so having found Evonne and Waggin’ Tail is a God send on those days we have appointments. We can drop him off for a play date for a very reasonable rate. He feels at home there and goes straight to the backyard full of open space, toys and playmates. It’s clear Yvonne loves her job as “leader of the pack” and the pack adores her.

Fantastic Puppy Getaway

I was impressed from the first meeting of our dog Rosie and Evonne. She was methodical in letting Rosie get the lay of the land and introducing her one by one to the other dogs. She makes certain to watch for how the dogs get along and interact ensuring all stays will be comfortable. Evonne is our go to sitter because we know Rosie will have a blast, be well cared for, and we even get photos every day of what she’s up to.
