Why should my dogs go to day care?
Your dog needs stimulation to get them through the day too. Rather than being at home sitting in the backyard, staring at four walls, or lazing around all day creating the risk of boredom activities like ripping up your favorite plants or ripping apart your favorite clothing; your dog gets the chance to exercise, interact with dogs with personalities similar to theirs and receive love and cuddles from the crew here at Waggin’ Tails.

Absolutely. Our play groups are divided according to both size and temperament, ensuring that each dog only associate with suitable playmates. All groups have constant supervision, to maximize safety.
Will you feed my dog when they come for daycare?

We use a great range of Kong Products and other durable toys. These products are not only stimulating for your canine but also completely washable, non-toxic, hard wearing and safe for all dogs. We have balls, tug toys, kangaroo climbers and more… what more could a dog want?
What happens if a dog becomes dominating or aggressive?
Our first priority is the safety of all our dogs, so we have designed a ‘time-out’ area so dogs can be removed from the play ground instantly. In addition we require all dogs pass a temperament test prior to their first full day of daycare.
Will my dogs potty training at home change?
No – dogs learn by association, and they make associations whenever they are awake and interacting with their environment. The day care environment is far different to being in their home environment. Although we do our utmost to make the center as homely and comfortable as possible; the smells, interaction and associating the stimulus of the center with day care only is the key to ensuring potty training and other training is retained at home. Each daycare room also has an attached, fenced in yard so your dog can go outside to potty as needed.
Is the management and staff experienced in animal handling and patient at all times?
We have a highly qualified crew here at WagginTails, all of which are experienced in animal handling and are certified in Canine First Aid. To work within the WagginTails environment all employees must possess energy, a passion for animals and above all patience. We have a very high expectation of all of our crew to ensure you have 100% confidence that your dog is with the best in the industry.
Is my dog playing on concrete?
The center has RB rubber flooring and installed throughout all play areas. This not only greatly reduces the risk of injury, it also provides warmer more comfortable environment for our clients.
