Experience through the years has taught us that just like people, different pets have different needs. Your pet will have many choices in accommodations here at Waggin' Tails Junction. Your pet's age, activity level, overall health, and personality will help select the best place for its visit.
There are several options for our canine passengers including the upper and lower Coach Class with double-decker runs, First Class Luxury Suites, 6'x8' rooms, "Engine-Engine Number Nine" for visitors 9 lbs and under or 9 yrs or older who have special needs.
The Kitty Kaboose offers our feline passengers a private Condo Lounge Car and a play area for stretching, napping, or just watching the dogs play through the window. Your cat will enjoy the purr-fect pampering it deserves.
Our climate-controlled building assures your pet will never be too hot or too cold in the building. Your dog will get plenty of fresh air and sunshine during its three daily exercise periods on the observation deck. The spacious area is surrounded on three sides with sliding glass doors and windows with screens that are opened wide on pretty days. Even on inclement days, the skylights provide a cheerful environment for enjoying visits with fellow passengers.
The dogs are supervised while on the porch by a porter who rotates them from the porch to one of our outside yards while they are waiting for their inside kennels to be cleaned. It assures each dog gets individual attention while also affording mental and physical exercise.
THE Tailway Express to Waggin' Tails Junction, at the Dean Drive Depot. Come into the Station House waiting room and the Station Master will help you select your TICKET.
You may bring your own food for your dog, but please bring only enough for the number of days the dog will be kenneled. No special containers please. We have food containers that stack and when there are 80 dogs to feed, we can organize the feeding so that it is neat, clean and accessible.
We charge only for medications that are not administered with a meal, like ear or eye drops. Please label all medications with your pet's name, brand and instructions.
Our travelers enjoy their own bed during the trip. Coach Class has raised platforms or cots with bedding, "Mutt Mats" a popular choice. Elderly dogs have thick bedding with the special senior insulated mat and rubber floor mats and towels. Suite dogs have a couple choices of cots with plush bedding, bean bag beds, floor towels. Due to the large volume of laundry as we clean the dog's rooms three time a day; please do not bring bedding from home. Old toys, chewies, biscuits, treats are welcomed and will be distributed to your pet.
