We love Tail Waggerz for daycare and boarding. Our pup is so excited when we pull in the driveway that he starts shaking and makes a beeline for the door. He comes home happy and exhausted. They really seem to know and love him too, and that makes us feel so comfortable leaving him for a day or two. Their instagram is great too!

I just picked up my 7 month old Cobberdog after Eve groomed him. He looks terrific! Eve did a super job on this energetic, wiggly big puppy. And while he was waiting for me to pick him up, he got to play with the dogs in daycare. He didn’t want to leave!

Great place to to leave your dog. Very friendly staff, and my dog gets home tired. I cannot ask for more.

I wholly trust the great staff at Tail Waggerz to take care of our dog. Our dog likes being at TW more than she likes being home! We bring our dog for daycare regularly during the work week and boarding when we travel. They take great care of her. They are reliable, communicative, and mindful to the pack to make sure all dogs thrive there. They just do a great job. Plus they’re great about posting pictures of daily happenings at daycare so you can be envious of all the fun the dogs are having in the sun. I highly recommend them to anyone.

I started using Tail Waggerz before they got their new location when my husband was ill and my yellow lab/golden mix needed care during the day. since my husband passed away, I have had to use them much more often to care for my dog during the day while I am work. Merry loves going there, can’t wait to get out of the car. The owners show her a lot of love and I never mind leaving her. She always returns happy, well groomed and TIRED and ready to go back the next day. the business is flexible and has even kept her overnight when I had an emergency and couldn’t pick her up – never complaining and always at a reasonable price. This is a real find of a business – the owners genuinely love the dogs and they love them back. I don’t know how I could keep my dog if I did not have a place as good as this to entrust her to.

My shaggy little hound hates being groomed, but I have to do it in the summer otherwise he gets really hot, and his luscious hair collects leaves, twigs, and other foliage. He hates grooming so much that previous groomers have told me they had to use a muzzle on him. Obviously this disturbed me not only because my dog was nipping at all, but more so because this told me he was in a situation where he felt he needed to nip. In any other situation he’s the sweetest dog, to anyone he meets, and this would never happen except when a big dog is really messing with him, for example. So, I’ve been to 5 different groomers over the last 5 years for his yearly summer haircut, and all said he was difficult. And he always came back looking like he’d just been through something not great.

Until today with Jen. Not only did he come out looking handsome and exactly as I had asked Jen to cut his 4+ inch fuzzy hair ( to less than an inch!), but he was happy! She was obviously a huge dog lover, and she said he was perfectly well behaved and no muzzle needed. That’s the dog I know! I credit her for being gentle and not rushing, and likely giving him lots of love.

On top of that, the whole process was really fast, which is great because so often a groomer will just stash a dog in a cage til they are ready. With Jen,I made an appointment, brought my pup in, she worked on him, and then called me when he was done. He had a treat when I arrived to get him. Perfect! And very affordable prices.

I highly recommend that you come here to groom your dogs, even if it is out of your way.

We have been taking our small dog to Tail Waggerz ever since she was a puppy four years ago, for both daycare and boarding. WE LOVE this place and these people. We have been consistently impressed with how professionally Tail Waggerz is run, and at the same time how friendly and welcoming everybody in the day care has been. We are enormously grateful to them for the love and attention they have shown to our Joni, who is always excited to go off for daycare in the morning. All members of the staff are reliable, trustworthy and dependable, which shows how much care the owners take, in who they bring on board.

Tail Waggerz is always clean and hygienic – I can’t imagine how much work that must involve. There is never a concern about the health of our dog while she is in their care.

The morning shuttle pick-up and afternoon drop-off when we need this, is a great service. The recently added grooming service is excellent.

Tail Waggerz goes the ‘extra mile’ for us, whatever the circumstances. Just one example: we were snowed-in out of town last week and could not get home as planned to fetch Joni from boarding – Brian, the manager, was only too willing to go to our house to pick up extra food so that they would not run short. These folks treat our pet like their own, showering affection on our ‘fur-baby’ when we are away. It is very reassuring.

We really like the open, cage-free accommodation. There is careful attention to make sure that the larger and smaller dogs play well, or are in separate areas. There is outside time too, and the play area is well maintained.

We recommend Tail Waggerz with huge enthusiasm. How nice would it be if all the businesses that provide services we really need were as open, caring, genuine and reliable as Tail Waggerz. We have seen this business grow and thrive over the past four years, and we wish Robyn, Joe, Brian and the gang continued success and positive feedback. Two paws up from Joni as well!
