Dog Boarding

At Wagging Tails Pet Resort & Spaw, we want to be your pet’s home, away from home. While you’re away, relax and know your dog is having a blast here, on a vacation of his own! With spacious, clean overnight rooms and days spent with friends playing in daycare, this is the next best place to home! We also offer cage free accommodations at our West Hartford location. Dogs must undergo an evaluation for cage free overnight boarding. If your dog does not fit our social and behavioral criteria for cage free, then we will offer boarding room accommodations, or pet sitting at your home.

As our guest, your dog will enjoy plenty of exercise and playtime throughout the day, and loads of love from our staff. Each room is equipped with a raised Kuranda bed and fleece bedding. We keep our pet guests’ quarters clean, comfortable and relaxing. Overnight staff are on hand to sleep with your pet. Whether your pet is spending the night, the week, or more, your pet will be pampered in a safe, nurturing, social environment. Our professional, well-trained staff is always at your pet’s beck-and-call and is happy to lavish him or her with love and attention throughout their entire stay.
