Doggie Daycare

Open 7 days a week! 6:30am to 7pm

Socialization, exercise, training and FUN in a safe, sanitary, supervised environment.

If you have to work a long day, drop your dog off at Wagging Tails Pet Resort & Spaw – a 9,000-square-foot, clean, safe daycare on 6 acres! Your pet’s day will include playtime, nap time, treat time, more play time, some training and even a few days of arts & crafts!

Our outdoor fenced-in play area features professional dog play equipment, bone and paw-shaped splash pools, bubbles, ball pits and more! For the older dogs that just want to chillax, we offer a quiet area for them to lounge and relax as much as they want! Play groups are separated by size, breed and temperament.

Plus, from April to October, our daycare offers a unique opportunity for your dog to swim in our 45’ saltwater pool!

Your dog will return home tired and happy after a day with their furry friends. And you can schedule a bath, massage, a la carte grooming services and other activities and extras for your pet to enjoy during their day at doggie daycare.


  • We offer pet care for all ages! Please contact us to discuss your dog's age and the appropriate programs that we offer for your dog's age.  YES, we do offer Puppy Nursery School and Senior Pet Care. 
  • Dogs 12 months of age and older SHOULD be spayed or neutered. However, we understand that many breeders and veterinarians are recommending later ages for the surgeries. So, Wagging Tails will discuss with you the options we offer based on your pet's age, behaviors and training. If your dog is over 12 months of age and is not spayed or neutered, this does not mean that they are not eligible for our daycare program. It means that we will evaluate their behaviors and place them in the appropriate playgroups or individual care program. Please contact us with any questions.
  • Dogs must be on a veterinarian approved flea or tick preventative.
  • Proof of up-to-date Rabies, Distemper, Parvovirus, Bordetella and Canine influenza vaccines are required. As of 2023, some veterinarians do not require Canine Influenza vaccines. If your veterinarian is not administering this vaccine, we can waive this requirement.
  • All dogs must have a temperament evaluation prior to their acceptance into our daycare program. This evaluation is performed over several hours and requires a reservation. You will receive a detailed report card.
  • Dogs must have quick release collars. If you do not have one, we offer collars for sale in our lobbies.
  • If your dog exhibits signs of aggression towards other dogs, we regret that they will not be accepted into daycare.
  • Daycare reservations are required. Last minute cancellations and no show fees apply.

We offer discounts for one-on-one time with our Pet Care Specialists, while we taek a lovely, leg stretching jaunt through the trails on our 6 acres. This service is $12 per walk. However, the discount makes it only $10!

CRAFTY K9 PACKAGE: $60 for 5 Crafty K9 activities. 

Enrichment activities are part of our daily offerings here! We offer the opportunity to further educate your pooch and we love to engage with them in some fun activities! Our Crafty K9 activity is when your dog participates in creating a work of "heart" for you to take home and cherish.  Your dog will enjoy one on one interaction, acclimate to having their paws or noses touched, feel different surfaces, and create a one of a kind craft for you. From pawprint painting, to lick it masterpieces, our creativity and your dog's participation, has no limits. Crafty K9 activities change weekly, and can be added on to your dog's day. This service is $13 to $15 per creation. However, we offer a discount package. 


Exterior swimming pool is open May through September.  Pool Passes are required.  Please ask us about our Pool Pass Packages!  Our NEW interior pool opens October 2023 in Wagging Tails' West Hartford location.
