Cage Free Boarding


We know your dog misses you while you are away, so we have made our facility as close to home as possible. Unlike a traditional kennel, boarding dogs at Wags participate in daycamp all day long (with naps during the day). Boarding dogs then spend the night cage-free on comfortable beds and blankets with their doggie friends and our caring staff. Our staff sleeps in the same room as your dog – slumber-party style! Our facility is staffed 24 hours a day/ 365 days a year.

All dogs are fed individually and we will gladly administer oral and topical medication prescribed by your veterinarian.

Please visit our "Register" page or contact us at 203-744-9247 for more information and to get started.

Please Note: We are currently back on a waitlist to start new dogs with us. We will not be able to accept any dogs into our pack through at least the end of April 2024. If you would like to submit your information so that we can contact you when we resume evaluations, please fill out our Waitlist form. Please click here to fill out the Dog History/Waitlist Form.

Dogs must first be comfortable in daycamp at Wags before their first overnight stay. A minimum of two daycamp visits (one half day and one full day) are required prior to first cage-free overnight stay. A small percentage of dogs might not be ready for cage free overnights after two visits and will need more daycamp visits before participating in that program.
