Overnight Boarding

Dog Boarding

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. Our boarding manager does nightly checks and all activity is camera recorded, and reviewed in the morning. Health checks are preformed and documented every morning to ensure a safe, healthy, and enjoyable stay for your pet.

Our kennel schedule is designed to offer more exercise and stimulation than many boarding kennels offer, but still includes scheduled rest times. Unlike many kennels, Wagmore is staffed 24×7 with staff residing on site. 

Our Boarding Schedules

Our flexible scheduling options accommodate your dog’s needs, providing peace of mind while you’re away.

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.
