Can I take a tour?

Of course! Wag Central encourages tours of our facility during lobby hours. Tour times are subject to change during peak and holiday times, please call ahead to check availability.

How do I make a reservation?

You can reserve services through our online client portal or via telephone or text to 203.895.2752.

What are the prerequisites for making a reservation?

Please complete our registration packet by logging in here or visit the front desk at Wag Central. Proof of vaccinations (24 hours prior to your dog coming in, plus approval from a Wag team member) and a Personality Profile are required for all dogs at Wag Central.

We require a veterinarian certificate proof of the following vaccinations: DHPP, Rabies, Bordetella, and Leptospirosis, as well as a negative fecal (ova, parasites and giardia) within 6 months.

With any of these vaccinations, they need to be administered a minimum of 2 full weeks prior to the reservation to ensure they have had proper time to dissipate through your dog’s system.

Your vet can fax Wag Central at 844-310-0171.

We ask that all 4-legged clients be free of fleas and ticks.

4-legged guests who attend Wag Central will require a Personality Profile administered by a Wag Central staff member. This allows the Wag Central staff to get to know your dog, their social skills, and play style.

All daycare and boarding dogs are required to wear a breakaway collar* with a Wag Central tag. You can bring your own or purchase the set on-site for $20.00. The cost of the tag alone is $5.00.

*Safety is our number one priority at Wag Central. Breakaway collars are the safest choice for play in an open environment because they disconnect quickly and easily. This type of collar is least likely to get caught on fencing, a dog’s tooth, etc.

Do I need to make a reservation for daycare services?

Reservations are highly recommended with 12 hours notice, as we have regular daycare clients and boarding dogs in daycare. We do accept daycare drop-ins, however, priority will be given to those dogs with reservations or in our boarding program.

What is your daycare cancellation policy?

We ask that you give 12 hours for daycare cancellations, exceptions will be made for emergency situations. No shows will be charged the full amount for their reservation. If you miss two appointments without notice, your future daycare reservations will be cancelled and all new reservations will require full payment of the booking up front. A daycare package is required for all standing reservations.

What are your boarding requirements?

Similar to daycare, we require a veterinarian certificate proof of the following vaccinations: DHPP, Rabies, Bordetella, and Leptospirosis, as well as a negative fecal (ova, parasites and giardia) within 6 months.

With any of these vaccinations, they need to be administered a minimum of 2 full weeks prior to the reservation to ensure they have had proper time to dissipate through your dog’s system.

Your vet can fax Wag Central at 844-310-0171.

We ask that all 4-legged clients be free of fleas and ticks.

Age Requirements 4 months or less in specialized care, 8 years or older (at owner discretion) specialized care as well.

All temperament approved boarding dogs will spend their days in our daycare program, because of this, an uptick in physical activity during your dog’s stay is expected (depending on your dog’s lifestyle at home). If your dog lives more of a sedentary life at home, let us know! We are happy to abide by whatever schedule your dog is used to. This could mean restricting time spent in daycare (half day may be more appropriate for some dogs), using the fetch lane to channel your dog’s energy in a way pleasing to him while our daycare dogs are napping or coming up with a custom exercise regime to include swimming, training, agility work, etc. to maximize your dog’s stay with us!

What times can I drop off and pick up my dog from boarding?

As of February 1, 2018 we are changing our drop off and pick up times.

Weekdays Monday – Friday

  • Drop Offs 4 pm – 6pm
  • Pick Ups 8:30 am – 10:30 am

Weekends Saturday + Sunday

  • Drop Offs 12 pm – 2 pm
  • Pick Ups 10 am – 11 am

What if my dog needs care past designated drop off and pick up times?

Boarding per night cost will still include the day of daycare, however we are now operating on a new drop off and pick up time schedule. If you drop your dog off for boarding or pick your dog up past the allotted times, you will incur charges for daycare (full or half day depending on the amount of time spent).

Example, if you drop your dog off at 10 am the day of the reservation, you will be charged for a full day of daycare ($38) plus the night of boarding ($55) for that day total.

Can I bring my dog’s food during a boarding stay or daycare lunch?

We highly encourage you bring your dog’s food during their time at Wag Central to ensure their routine stays as close to normal as possible. Sudden dietary changes can add further stress to an already potentially stressful situation of being away from home.

If bringing your dog’s food, please ration out each meal in zip lock bags and ensure to provide enough bags of food for a few extra meals as a safeguard. Failing to do so will result in Wag Central utilizing our own food based on bag feeding instructions with associated costs. See below.

We will accommodate most special feeding instructions such as add-ins, specialized meals, cooking and thawing instructions. In some cases, a $5 per meal fee will be added.

If you forget your dog’s food, you can purchase meals for $3 (per meal) from Wag Central for the duration of your dog’s stay. Wag Central serves Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals chicken and rice formula. We also offer frozen Kongs stuffed with peanut butter, or pumpkin for $5.

Will you give my dog their meds?

Absolutely! All medications must be clearly labeled in their original packaging with dosing directions clearly written. If your pet willingly takes their oral medication in food/treats, this service is complimentary (please provide whatever food they take their medication in). If your pet is uncooperative with oral medications or needs other medications such as: ear or eye drops, creams, sprays, etc., there will be a $2 per medication per dose. There is a charge of $5 for injectable medications per medication per dose. NOTE: if your pet is diabetic or epileptic they are required to board in our specialized care area.

My dog is coming for boarding but has a pre-existing condition or special medical needs. What do I do?

If your dog has an existing medical condition such as Diabetes, Epilepsy, is recovering from surgery or needs an extra level of medical care, we are now requiring a telephone or in person meeting with our Dog Life Specialist, Annie, prior to the boarding stay. This 15 minute time slot will be spent going over medicine administration, special feeding instructions or anything else we need to know in order to keep your dog’s routine the same while at Wag Central.

Is your facility secure?

Wag Central promotes a safe, healthy, and fun environment for all 4-legged guests. We are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our facility features security cameras, an alarm system, and fire retardant building materials in the case of an emergency. Wag Central has a well defined plan of egress.

What if my dog doesn’t play well with others?

Wag Central is a dog inclusive place. If your dog is not a proper fit for our daycare program, there are a few options that we offer. If you’re looking for daycare, you can reach out to the Dean of Wag U, Danielle, to set up a Specialized Daycare program that we offer on Wednesdays from 10 am – 6 pm. Specialized daycare is held in a separate space from our regular daycare program where Danielle will work on socialization, training and whatever else you may need*.

For your boarding needs, your pup is still welcome to board with us and will receive potty breaks, play time, and one-on-one attention by our staff 2 additional times during the day for a daily additional charge of $10*. This charge is mandatory when your dog is not a fit for our daycare program.

*Please note, there will be special circumstances of aggression (towards humans or dogs) that require an aggression specialist. In this case Danielle will refer your dog to a trainer in her network, not necessarily affiliated with Wag Central.

Do you accept intact males?

Yes, dogs will be accepted into the boarding and daycare programs based on their behavioral assessment and evaluation. During the evaluation, Wag Central staff will get a good sense of where your intact male fits with our other daycare dogs and who he is good playing with. We strive to keep all our dogs safe and comfortable.

Do you accept in heat females?

Yes, while females in heat will NOT be permitted to partake in daycare, they are welcome to board with us. They will be taken out 2 additional times a day for potty breaks, exercise and one-on-one love and attention from our staff during the day for a daily additional charge of $10. Females in heat are not permitted to board in our community room.

What do I need to know about booking during the holidays or during other peak times?
