Why Choose WagsInn?

Our mission is to provide the safest, most healthy environment for your dog. We will provide the best  companionship, socialization and exercise for every dog at WagsInn. Our customers will receive  outstanding service provided by staff members who put their heart and soul into the care of each and every dog to make their stay at WagsInn is the most pleasurable experience possible.

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.

Our family has had the absolute best experiences with Waggs. We have been taking our dogs there for over 15 years. Recently we have been taking our two 7 month old Vizslas to Waggs for boarding and also a occasionally for daycare. My little fellas have loved it ! Let them be the judge of how great this place is ! When I pull up to Waggs the puppies are wiggly and happy. They can’t wait to see the staff and greet them with happy grins and sweet wiggles and wags! Lori the owner is absolutely incredible and Stephanie has been very responsive and helpful in sharing pictures and answering all of my questions about their day! There are too many staff members to thank... everyone is highly trained and professional. I absolutely love that they reinforce good habits and training with the dogs. Our family is so blessed that the dogs have this special “home away from home”. Thank you Lori for your passion for your business, your talent and your huge heart !H maria

There wonderful!Karen Collins
Our great dame loves her days in doggy day care. The staff is top notch and the facility is large and well taken care of. It can be a little bit of a drive to get out there but it's worth it.Matt Masten
Wags Inn gives me complete piece of mind caring for my 11 year old dog, Chloe. The staff is sensitive to Chloe’s needs and always friendly and professional. Been taking my dogs to Wags Inn for over 11 years now and in the future.Rick nic
They are an amazing shelter for animals and they care about them as well, I know from personal experience thanks you very much!!! For all the helpKimberly Mullins
Our small dog stayed with them for a week while we were away. The farm where wags inn is located is very pretty and well maintained. Facilities were clean. Clear vibe of caring about the dogs in everyone we spoke with, owner especially. We gave somewhat annoying, specific food requests and they were happy to oblige. Even got photos and text updates of her playing with other dogs through the week. Would feel comfortable leaving our girl at wags inn again if the need arose.Erin Rodgers
If I could give 6 stars I would. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I was only expected to board my 12 year old lab for 7 days but it turned into 10 because I had car problems on the way home from my road trip. They were extremely understanding of the flexibility I needed on not being able to give them an “exact pickup date”. I could tell he had a good time because although he was “happy” to see me...he wasn’t “100% excited” like he usually is when I’m at work for 8 to 10 hours 🤣. (Which leads me to believe they really did give him the love and attention he needed. Plus, his whole baggie of treats were used so I know he was treated. Was given text updates as well. Super sweet staff! Will definitely use again.Breanne N Mulvey
