Best Dog Day Care, August 2013

There are no aromatherapy candles or private suites at Wagville. Instead the emphasis is on fun, comfort, and socialization. Separate areas for large and small dogs are amply stocked with water bowls, chew toys, and balls. During warm weather, four-legged guests can frolic in sizable faux-turf yards with baby pools for splashing. The Glassell Park facility is well maintained, staffed by serious dog lovers, and offers competitive pricing: $25 for half days, $35 for full (cage-free boarding is also available). The application might be longer than Stanford’s, but we commend the thoroughness. Owners can check on their charges via Webcam, and there’s door-to-door shuttle service as well as field trips to Runyon Canyon and Huntington Beach.
