Our Testimonials

I love to bring my dog on ski trips, but hate leaving her alone all day. Not only is Wagmore very conveniently located for Stratton, it's the perfect option. Flexible drop-off and pick-up hours make it easy and the facilities are great (and very clean). Most importantly the staff were incredibly friendly and were great with my dog. Throw on some great local advice and I truly can not recommend this place with a higher degree of confidence.

Tim Benhart

My incredibly shy rescue loves it here. If you're hitting the slopes for the day, this is a must. She comes home exhausted and so happy! The owners are clearly dog lovers. I can't recommend this place highly enough! I wish they had one in Brooklyn.

Andrea Vause

Fabulous doggie day care and kennels. Very caring staff who clearly loves animals and loves spending time with them. Always had an end of the day comment on how my puppy did that day.


My doggo Onyx absolutely loves going to daycare here! Sam and Cassie are wonderful!

Frequently Asked Questions

We require up-to-date Bordetella (Kennel Cough), Distemper, and Rabies vaccinations. Dogs that do NOT live in Vermont year round are required to have Canine Influenza. All dogs must be treated with a flea/tick treatment at least 48 hours in advance of their visit. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure we have updated vaccinations.

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 For the safety of all Wagmore dogs, we reserve the right to cancel bookings on the day of check-in due to out-of-date vaccines.

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 and ensure the safety of all Wagmore dogs. Most dogs pass with flying colors! Dogs with signs of aggression, dogs who bark excessively, or who have severe separation anxiety will not be admitted. Evaluations are done on the first day of daycare or on the first day of boarding.

Yes, reservations are required. You can reserve your space via phone (802-856-7522), email (wagmorekennelsvt@gmail.com) or using our online booking widget at the top of this page. Please note we require 24 hour cancellation notice. No call or no show for daycare is subject to the daily rate as we fill quickly and often have a waiting list. If your pup is not comfortable and does not pass the behavioral evaluation, you are still responsible for the days charge.  If you fail to pick up your dog, you will incur additional charges for boarding and for feeding

Just your dog and his/her vaccination records! We supply treats, water and friends for your dog to play with. Please make sure you feed your dog breakfast at least 90 minutes before you come for daycare to ensure they have digested fully and reduce the chance of bloat.

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.

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 Bordetella, Distemper, and Rabies vaccinations, and are friendly with other dogs are welcome at Wagmore.

Daycare is $25 per dog per day during the week, $35.00 on weekends. If you have two dogs in your family and bring them both, daycare is $45 total during the week, and $65.00 on weekends.

We require 24-hour notice for daycare and boarding cancellations.  Holiday period boarding bookings require a 50% non-refundable deposit. Cancellations made during this time period are responsible for the payment of the full daycare amount (for daycare cancellations) or one night of boarding (for boarding cancellations).  Holiday periods are November 28-December 1, December 24-January 1, January 18-20, February 15-17, July 2-5.

Payment must be made prior to or at time of check-in. You may pay via the email confirmation online or with cash or credit card upon arrival.
