Trails for Tails was established in 2011 and during that time we have built a good reputation and gain much of our work now from recommendations. We are a small family run business based in Seaford owned and managed by Connie Rafferty & Kim Richarsdon.
We are all animal lovers and adopted our dog, Indi a retired greyhound in 2006 but sadly she died unexpectedly in April 2015. We also adoped Tam a retriever x in September 2014 and unfortunately he developed a very aggressive form of cancer and died in February 2015. We miss our dogs very much and hope to adopt another retired greyhound (or two) this year.
We have now adopted our new prince, Bradley (December 2016), who is a four year old retired greyhound. He loves all our Daycare & Home Boarding Dogs and has settled into our home very quickly.
Often family commitments and work demands mean we require assistance with our furry friends and that is where we can help. We offer a variety of services including Doggie Daycare, Puppy Daycare, Home Boarding for Dogs, Dog Walking and Cat Feeding. We provide dogs in our care with daily stimulation & fun walks in a variety of locations. All dogs are properly supervised throughout the day and return home happy and tired and ready for the next visit.
Bradley joined our home in December 2016 and he is adored by all.
We adopted Indi 8 years ago and she is the princess of our house keeping all the young ones in line
We recently adopted Tam and he is our adorable prince
At TRAILS FOR TAILS we are:
Our Citroen Dispatch Van is fully fitted with dog crates and this ensures that all dogs travel safely and comfortably free from over-crowding - our van has been inspected and approved by Brighon & Hove Council.
We support Roger's Wildlife Rescue based in Woodingdean, Pup Aid, The Dogs Trust, Cats Protection & RSPB.
Trails for Tails supports Pup Aid who launched an e-petition in 2013 to help ban the sale of puppies and kittens unless their mothers are present.
'Puppy farming is the mass commercial production of puppies purely for profit and without a thought for the welfare or happiness of the pup, breeding bitch or stud dogs.
On a puppy farm breeding dogs and pups are usually kept in horrific dark conditions, totally unsocialised and riddled with both infectious and inbred often incurable diseases. These poorly pups are then sold en masse to pet shops, online or from free newspaper ads and usually die soon after reaching their new home'.
This campaign hopes to stop demand for poorly pups by raising much needed awareness about the correct way to choose a dog, i.e. adopt from rescue or ask "Where's Mum?" insisting on seeing her interacting with her pups.

Adopt from a rescue centre (that is a registered charity) or ask Where's Mum?
