Vacation with ease! If you’re looking for Dog boarding in Southern VT, we’re the answer. We provide your dog a fun and comfortable home away from home while you’re away. Dogs enjoy all-day open play in our indoor-outdoor environment with limited kennel time.
Wagmore Kennels is staffed overnights with our kennel boarding manager living on premises so your pup is NEVER alone.
Reservations required. Please review our F.A.Q. for helpful information regarding boarding requirements. Please note we are closed for pick up and drop off on Christmas, Thanksgiving Day and New Years Day.
Please note the online booking below is a reservation request and will be reviewed by a Wagmore team member. Only registered guests that have passed a behavior evaluation may make online bookings. All bookings are pending until we receive proof of valid Bordetella, Rabies, and Distemper vaccines.
If you’d like to drop off your dog for the day during a non-daycare day (Sunday & Monday), we offer day boarding for $20. Open play from 8-10am and 3-5pm, with kennel nap time in the middle. Can only be reserved 48 hours in advance.
What vaccinations does my dog need to visit Wagmore?
We require up-to-date Bordetella (Canine Cough), Distemper and Rabies vaccinations. All dogs must be treated with a flea/tick treatment at least 48 hours in advance of their visit.
All vaccinations must be administered at least 2 weeks prior to your booking. For the safety of all Wagmore dogs, we reserve the right to cancel bookings on the day of check-in due to out-of-date vaccines.
Does my dog need to be evaluated before visiting Wagmore?
As Wagmore is an off-leash, open-play environment, we require a behavior evaluation for all new Wagmore dogs to ensure a friendly, playful demeanor. Most dogs pass with flying color! Dogs with signs of aggression, reactivity, dogs who bark excessively or who have severe separation anxiety will not be admitted. Evaluations are $25 and if passed, the $25 can be used as a credit for your first booking.
What should I bring for my dog's boarding reservation?
We strive to create an environment that feels just like home! Please bring your dog’s food, bed (if he/she sleeps on one at home), and any medications your dog needs. Please note that if your dog is on multiple medications there is a $5 per day charge for administering them. Please be sure to bring enough food for your dog’s reservation as switching up food brands will upset your dog’s digestive system. If we run out of food for your dog during his/her reservation or if you do not bring food for your dog’s reservation, we will provide food for $5 per meal.
Do you require my dog to be spayed/neutered?
Yes, for the safety of all Wagmore dogs, we require all dogs to be spayed or neutered. Intact dogs will often be singled out and picked on by dominant male and female dogs and a female may release pheromones when coming into heat that would cause conflict. To keep our play calm and fun and provide a happy and non-competitive environment, we cannot accept intact dogs.
Can my puppy come to Wagmore?
We believe proper socialization with dogs is key for a puppy’s upbringing! Puppies 6 months old or older, spayed/neutered, and up to date with Canine Influenza, Bordetella, Distemper, and Rabies vaccinations and are friendly with other dogs are welcome at Wagmore.

When can I drop off/pick up my dog for her/his reservation?
You may drop off during any open hours on the first day of your boarding reservation, however, for the comfort of your pet, drop-off for boarding must be 15 minutes before we close. We require this so your dog has time to get acclimated to Wagmore and have a potty break before getting cozy in his/her kennel. If drop-off is within 15 minutes before closing or beyond, a $20 fee will be added to the booking.
Pick up on check out day is by 10:00am. If you need late check out, we offer it for half day daycare change ($15/per dog).
