We offer daycare for dogs, training, and KENNEL-FREE, staff supervised overnight care and boarding in our clean and comfortable facility.

We are specifically designed to maintain quality care, safety, and a clean environment for dogs in need of socialization, release of energy and attention.



My best boy Riven has been going to the dog waggin’ for a little over a year now. He is so well taken care of and it’s his favorite place to be. He comes home exhausted and happy after a long day of playing with friends. Thank you to the staff for loving and caring for my boy just as much as I do! You guys are great 🥰

Both my babies have been there all day every day the last week while we do construction on our house. They come home SO happy, and TIRED! I’m loving the calm snuggles at night 😍 Thanks for loving on our babies as much as we do!

I just started going to The Dog Waggin’, but Mullins loves it! They send picture & video updates throughout the day, the price is better than any place I’ve looked into, and Mullins comes home every day exhausted. I would highly recommend it for any pups looking to get their energy out and make new friends!

We love The Dog Waggin! Very friendly, you can tell they have true compassion for the dogs. My dog only started going to daycare last week and he loves it – and comes home super tired so we know he had a great time. When I grab his leash in the morning, he knows exactly where he’s going! Thanks for being so great & taking care of my boy!
