We have created a safe place for your dogs to get the exercise and loving attention you intended them to have.

At the proper age all dogs must be spayed or neutered.

From Lori Wolcott, owner

You will be worry-free knowing your dogs will be staying here at WagsInn. Along with my 5 dogs, I welcome your canine companions to our home. My overwhelming respect and love for dogs motivated me to rescue dogs in need and to open WagsInn in 1998. From the beginning, I have earned the trust and confidence of my clients and guests.

Our Facilities

Located at my residence, WagsInn will truly become “your dog’s home away from home.” We are located close enough to the cities, but in the heart of the country. Your dog will run with other dogs on our enclosed yards and fields. After hours of exercise and socialization, they can relax and sleep in one of our three air-conditioned and heated housing facilities. For inclement weather, your dogs can spend time with us inside our Canine Playroom with their other canine friends.

Please note: While every attempt is made to socialize the dogs, problems may occur. WagsInn needs to be informed if your dog should be isolated from other dogs or if you have additional concerns with your dog’s temperament or personality.

Excellent place for your pets. They go above and beyond. Helped get a family member's 2 dogs adopted after their owner passed away. Also, our dogs feel comfortable when we go on trips. It's clean and sprawling.Tracy A. Szarzi Fors

The best kennel experience in the Midwest! The staff care for your dog and make smart adjustments to their stay when your pup needs it.Dab Gerke
This place is so wonderful. It's like a forty minute drive from Dayton, but my dog loves it there and comes back tired and happy every time she enjoys daycare.Luke Gorman

I can't wait to go to Wags. It's not that I don't love my mom and dad but they always take good care of me. I get to play with my buddies and then get to rest. They always give me my blanky and dad's shirt in my bedroom and always give me treats. They know my name and love on me too. When it's over, I love going home with mom and dad but I look forward to my next visit. Wags is my second home. And I get to poop there too, whenever I want!Stacey Pavlatos
