Enrichment Group Daycare at Waggin’ Tails Junction

Our unique daycare is comprised of social dogs practicing safe, fair play behaviors in a group setting.  We encourage a calm entrance to the room to practice self control.  After completing a full day evaluation, we will recommend potential attendance moving forward from the evaluation to be able to evaluate the changing behaviors as dogs get comfortable in our daycare group. 

Manners are very important in a group setting where staff are monitoring and interacting with many dogs.  Dogs must be friendly with all sizes of dogs and the staff to safely enjoy the group play.  Through the day we encourage positive obedience and encourage games with the dogs to keep them mentally and physically stimulated.  We do not allow “dog park play” in our group and the dogs have constant supervision.

With staff members who have decades of dog care and training experience, we want the best for your pup.  We are constantly evaluating behaviors that dogs exhibit as they grow and change based on age and any home environment changes. If your dog has not attended our daycare for six months or more, we require a re evaluation to make sure your dog continues to have a positive, safe experience in our daycare.

These are some necessary skills that we consistently utilize and practice through the day:

-RECALL (come when name is called)

We all benefit if these skills are practiced at home to help keep focus and get a dog’s attention when needed for dogs to pass their evaluation and stay in daycare.

Our evaluations are scheduled for the day and we slowly introduce dogs and toys into a small group setting, eventually graduating to the full group and activities. Some dogs need the time throughout the day to feel more confident in our group setting and make friends while other dogs acclimate very quickly.  Call ahead to check availability and set a date for the evaluation.
