In order to provide a safe and healthy environment for our pet clients, the following vaccinations are required: Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordetella. We also require your pet to be up to date on all flea, tick, and heartworm treatments.

Daycare Assessments:

We screen all daycare applicants for temperament and play groups. Please contact us for further information.


At Tails R Waggin', we strive to provide the safest environment. However, we cannot prevent accidents, injuries, illnesses, or changes in your pet's behavior. By bringing your dog to Tails R Waggin', you accept these risks and do not hold Tails R Waggin' responsible for these or any other injury that may occur.


Payment is due in full at the time services are provided. We accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks. Returned checks will have an additional fee of $25.

What to bring:

  1. Medications - If your dog is taking medication during their stay, please bring them in the original bottle so we can provide accurate information to a veterinarian in the event of an emergency.
