  • 5. great day care!

    by: amgfnyc

    Wags is just great. They have a devoted staff, and a big enough staff that the dogs get a good amount of attention. The best part about Wags is that they have a Webcam, so you can check in on your dogs while they're there. I haven't taken my dogs there on a huge number of occasions, but when I have, I have felt very confident about the care they were getting. The location is also very convenient, and prices are reasonable.

    Pros

    nice indoor and outdoor spaces for the dogs

    Cons

    none

  • 7. 4 paws up for Wags!!

    by: Vickysmom

    I first became familiar with Wags because the owners had rescued and were fostering Norman, the dog I later adopted. They treated Norman with such love! They fed him high quality food and took him to the vet in a snowstorm! The entire staff treated Norman like their beloved pet. When my other dog Vicky later spent a day at the day camp with her new brother Norman, she got the same caring and personalized treatment.\n\nWags screens all their campers. Vicky was carefully interviewed. She can type 45 WPM, but can't take dictation. Seriously, she was tested with a variety of dogs of varying personality types. I am happy to say she made the cut.\n\nWhat also makes Wags great is that the dogs can romp together and with their human counselors in the lounge (complete with couches), the gym, the outside and the pup tent! They come home exhausted.\n\nDog parents at work or on vacation can watch their antics on webcams.\n\nIn conclusion, the owners and employees of Wags are true dog lovers. Most of them are also shelter volunteers.

    Pros

    A home away from home! No cages!

  • 8. Your Dogs Will Love Wags!

    by: LizMc

    Your dogs will LOVE Wags! All the dogs at Wags are social and good with other dogs, so you know your dogs are safe! It is very clean because there is an outdoor area where your dog can go to the bathroom. There is absolutely NO way that your dog can escape Wags. Even if there was a chance your dog would much rather stay with all the other dogs! The building is wonderful for dogs with a lounge, a gym, an outdoor area, and a pup tent. The lounge has beds and chairs for your dogs to sleep on. If you work long days and leave your dog at home all alone you should think about bringing your dog to Wags! When you get home and your dog jumps all over you ready to play, but your tired and just want to go on the couch and watch some TV with your dog instead bring your dog to Wags! Wags is perfect for every dog that loves other dogs!

    Pros

    Your dogs will have alot of fun!

  • 9. SNOWY LOVES THIS PLACE

    by: YMZ

    My dog loved this place. He was there while my family was on a cruise and I used the internet on the boat to keep an eye on my dog. He didn't seem to miss me at all - he was having so much fun!!!! AND I know he slept in the bed - he always does!!!

    by: CatherineMc

    This is a great place for your dogs to spend the day/night. They run free and have a great time together. The staff is very friendly and caring. If you get lonely you can go to their website and watch your dogs on the webcam. Once your dog is there they'll never want to leave!

    Pros

    Your dogs have a great time

  • 11. Dogs Rule at Wags!

    by: TimDemp30

    Wags is a great community oriented organization. I love that they work closely with the Danbury Animal Welfare Society to care for dogs that need extra socialization skills. It is such a worthwhile and altruistic effort. I love the dogs all seem to be enjoying themselves. I love that the dogs get to sleep on real beds and chairs (like many do at home!) instead of being in crates. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    large, caring, great staff, community oriented

    Cons

    none

  • 12. Nothing better than WAGS!

    by: RuthieD

    We have 2 dogs, one started 3+ years ago - and it is the best idea ever! I took extra work so both the dogs could go. I couldn't imagine a week without it, and neither could the pups. My husband checks on them throughout the day - webcams - and reports when he gets home. One day a week I work late, and I know my dogs are well taken care of and are happy when I leave them - and happy when I pick them up (and tired too - bonus, especially since one of them is high energy) It also keeps them in shape. I've used the bath service - and Maggie came home smelling delicious - as I was leaving that morning- she rolled in something terrible, and they were fabulous when I dropped them off - no problem for the last minute bath. Before we got Maggie, Dudley started there, he was a very social dog and it was a perfect fit. He howls in the car at least 1-2 miles away from WAGS, no matter which way I go, trying to trick him - but he knows, and now Maggie is doing the same. The staff is caring and loving - and my dogs adore them - I drop them off and it's like kids - forget mom - I'm going to go play! Dudley also stayed overnight when we were called away on an emergency - and the fact that someone was there and he slept with them in a bedroom - I had no worries - as close to home environment as I could get. I have recommend 5+ friends -- and each have been sold after the first 5 minutes they've walked in the door. I love the idea that they also help out DAWS with the shelter dogs - that is the icing on the cake! I couldn't be happier - because if they're happy -- I'm happy. They're my babies!! Also, they were offering training classes and that was awesome - so convenient. When they opened the Pup Tent - they had the welfare of my pups at heart and tried them - to see what made them happiest - without me even asking! They truly are dog driven!

  • 14. WAGS is a Wonderful Place

    by: BBRed

    This is such a great place, not only do they provide the day care for peoples dogs - they provide an invaluable service to DAWS as well. They take some of the dogs that really need some longer term help with socialization.\r\nThank you to an absolutely WONDERFUL staff!

  • 15. Great place to work

    by: freespirit53

    Wags is a great place to work. For me it is a labor of love to be with the dogs. After working at the local hospital for twenty years, I am so much happier here. The owners are hands on with all aspects of the operations and treat their employees as well as the dogs that come here.

    Pros

    Working with dogs

  • 17. Wags is the BEST!

    by: LisaAshla

    I don't know what we'd do without WAGS. Our dog, Obi, absolutely loves spending the day with other dogs and the friendly staff members. He comes home super exhausted which gives us a break from his daily walks! WAGS holds events like the Easter Egg Hunt and Trivia night which brings people of the community together with our pups.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, friendly dogs, cage free, overnight staff

    Cons

    NONE!

    Great enviroment for dogs. It is obvious that the owners and entire staff at WAGS really care about your pets. This is more then a business to them...its a way of life. \r\n\r\nYou can know that your dog will be well cared for during his or her stay at WAGS. \r\n\r\nWAGS is also very supportive of the community and helps out local animal welfare organizations.

  • 23. Fun Day Camp & Boarding

    by: baileydogs

    A wonderful home away from home when you need to leave your dog for boarding at this cage free kennel and daycare. Go to work and let Rover romp and play all day with other dogs. When you pick him up at the end of the day, he'll be happy and exhausted. The staff is wonderful and knowledgable about dog issues. This place can't be beat!

    Pros

    Cage free boarding & day camp

    Cons

    Only for dog friendly dogs, of course

  • 24. Diesel loves Wags!

    by: KricketinCT

    Our little pug man, Diesel, loves to spend time at Wags! The daycare is fantastic, and the cage-free boarding is such a wonderful alternative to the classic kennel.\r\n\r\nWe love the fact that we can watch him online playing with all of his daycare buddies. The hours at Wags are really convenient, and the staff is fantastic! Can't say enough great things about Wags!

    Pros

    Great location, friendly staff, convenient hours ...

    Cons

    None!

  • 26. Friendly and Clean Fun

    by: MBeaver

    Tucker loves going to Wags Day Camp once a week for play time. The staff is very friendly, helpful and they are obviously dog lovers. Tucker has been boarded there for 2 consecutive nights while we were away. Since the dogs are not caged for boarding the whole experience is enjoyable for the dogs and takes the worry out of leaving them in someone elses care. Knowing that a Wags staff member would be there overnight with the dogs really put us at ease. The living room/bedroom area allows dogs to nap and the play area is a great place to romp. I have recommended Wags to many people and feel fortunate to have such a wonderful place nearby to take our dog.

    Pros

    great socialization for all sizes of dogs, fun doggy events

    Cons

    none

  • 27. Great place

    by: kcmohney

    Wags is a very nice place to take your pet-friendly dog for the day or when you're going on vacation. They also have videos so you can watch your pooch online playing all day. Plus, they also help local animal organizations with placing and fostering their animals.

    Pros

    Clean, friendly, right off highway

    Cons

    Needs to be closer to my house :)

  • 28. MY GIRLS LOVE IT HERE

    by: margaretcaruso

    THEY HAVE GREAT EVENTS FOR THE PETS

  • 29. Wags is a great place!

    by: drski23

    This is a great alternative to crating or leaving dogs home alone everyday! MUCH better than a kennel. My dog loves it and gets the exercise and attention he deserves and needs!

  • 31. The best for larger dogs

    by: notslor

    My dog loves going to WAGS- when we turn off the highway, he immediately pops up and excitedly presses his nose against the window. The summer times are the best for him, as the kiddie pools, tennis balls, and water hoses are just what an active lab needs! (in fact his picture shows him playing with their hose outside during the summer) The staff is very friendly, and generally seem happy to be working at 7 in the morning. And of course, the webcam lets you check up on how your doggie is doing during the day!

    Pros

    Lots of room to run and play, staff loves dogs

    Cons

    on busy days, your dog can get lost in the shuffle

  • 32. WAGS - Your dog will have blast!

    by: chrisben

    I wouldn't let my little girl spend the day anywhere else! WAGS is a women owned business and it shows - the owners and staff are kind, trustworthy and knowledgeable about their field. \r\nWAGS also supports many animal causes in it's surrounding communities, including DAWS events.

    Pros

    Friendly owners and staff

    Cons

    None

  • 33. My dogs love it!!

    by: smproia

    I know how much my dogs love going to Wags by their reaction when I make the turn into the Wags driveway. They get so excited, hopping around the backseat, and then racing to the front door to get in. I know that they will be well taken care of while we are at work or out of town and can't take them. I love the web cams, too.

    Pros

    friendly and caring staff

    Cons

    none

  • 34. Much Needed Service

    by: dunnek

    I love that they offer cageless boarding. I feel better about leaving my dogs once or twice a year when I go out of town knowing that are with people 24hrs. a day and not stuck in a cage/kennel.

    Pros

    Cageless boarding

    Cons

    none
