Dog Daycare

Greetings Waggin' Tails Clients!

Our business is currently in transition to make your animals experience even better! During this time, we will be making changes to our facility as well as training staff members to better care for your pets. Due to high volume of boarding and limited staff, we will not be offering Daycare, Little Rascals or Walk-in Services until further notice. We will, however, have all of our boarding options available and services for those boarding with us.

Our lobby is currently open for boarding and grooming clients. If you are aware of any exposure to COVID-19 or are experiencing any COVID-19 like symptoms within the past 14 days, please stay in for vehicle and call the reception desk at 608-271-4212 x3.

Once daycare is back up and running, we will require reservations; please call us to book your spot! We will be notifying the re-opening of Daycare, Little Rascals, and Walk-in Services via Facebook, Instagram, and our website:

We are grateful for your support during this time and look forward to having your animals back to play with us soon!  

Read about our daycare in preperation for our reopening!

Several daycare groups are separated by size and play style. Your dog will run and play with human and canine friends in a safe, clean environment. From a game of fetch to splashing in the above ground wading pools(weather permitting), to a relaxing ear rub, your dog will have a great day. All rooms are climate controlled and were built and designed specifically for doggy daycare. All dogs go through a daycare evaluation done by our staff. They must pass the  daycare evaluation to be allowed into group play and ensure the safety of everyone. Daycare evaluations and new client forms may take up to 10-15 minutes please plan accordingly. Reservations are required prior to coming in for daycare or for a daycare evaluation. Two no shows will result in removal from schedule.

  • All dogs must be vaccinated for Bordetella, Distemper, and Rabies. Additionally, you must provide proof of a negative fecal result testing for parasites and worms within the last 12 months.
  • Dogs over the age of 6 months must be spayed/neutered to be enrolled in daycare or board in the Bunkhouse.
  • All dogs must be on flea and tick preventative. Dogs showing signs of fleas will be treated at owner’s expense. Scheduled applications are available, please inquire.
  • Please keep pets showing signs of flu or diarrhea at home, or notify staff before bringing in for day boarding for the safety of everyone.

Day Boarding

For those dogs who prefer human company to canine company, this is the place for you. We offer day boarding in individual kennels. Private indoor/outdoor runs allow your dog to come and go as he/she pleases (weather permitting). There are also many extra one-on-one services available. Lunches and treats provided by owner are dispensed at no charge. Reservations are required for dayboarding. Two no shows will result in removal from schedule.
