We pay close attention to every dog to make sure their individual needs are met, understanding that every dog is unique. 

Our passionate staff is highly trained to provide exceptional care to your furry friends. We pride ourselves on our personalized service.

Does your pup need other personalized services? We offer other One-On-One services including:

*A variety of Enrichment Programs.

*Personal Staff Walks, Cuddle Time, & Tug/Play.

You can take a look at your dog's day on our Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok Pages. Check out the pictures and video clips daily to keep up with the latest activities. Our pups are having fun with other furry friends, enjoying the outdoors, splashing in the mini-pool, napping, being the social butterfly, or burning off energy.

Once the day is done, be assured that your pooch is happy, pampered, and has had enough activity to be exhausted. A tired dog is a good dog!

Meet Jimmy & Sumi Kim, Co-Owners and Operators

What's their story?

Jimmy and Sumi Kim have been dog lovers since childhood and started off dog-sitting for their friends and relatives in 2005. Being workaholics, they hardly traveled, and dog-sitting became a passion, with one dog becoming two and two becoming three and so forth.

Their home turned into a haven for dogs during holidays & weekends, and as years passed, they got an increasing number of inquiries. With the consistent inflow of inquiries, they decided to turn their passion into a profession, and Wagging Lounge Dog Resort was born.

Since childhood, Jimmy has been a proud Howard County resident with a short time away for college. The journey to care for pets started after 20 years of Management, Retail Business Operations, and Customer Service.

Educated at CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, he is a certified dog trainer, certified in Pro Dog Trainers Core Skill: Canine Training & Behavior, clicker training emphasis, and in Pet Health Academy First Aid & CPR.

Jimmy also served as Staff and Volunteer at Small Miracles Cat & Dog Rescue, Ellicott City. Wagging Lounge Dog Resort has the distinction of OPCLC Certification from the Outstanding Pet Care Learning Center.

WAGGING LOUNGE DOG RESORT has been in business since 2017 at the Columbia Location in Howard County Md.

Jimmy's Message

To Our Clients & their Best Friends,

I can't tell you how excited I am to open the doors of WAGGING LOUNGE DOG RESORT to the hometown I grew up in. I remember all of the opportunities and services are given to me as a child & adult here, and I am absolutely thrilled to serve and give back to the community I came to love so much. Stop in and give the resort a visit to find out what makes us stand out. I hope to see your pup's wagging tails soon.

MEET ITSY & the crew!

Our spunky Silky Terrier mix thinks anything edible is a treat. Itsy is a rescue from Small Miracles Cat & Dog Rescue. He knows a handful of commands, but his favorite tricks are "rollover" & "beg" as these always get him the biggest treat rewards. He loves dolls but was never a " tennis ball" guy. He's very independent but loves a cuddle once in a while. You can always spot his big ears and stubby tail. Itsy is a huge part of the inspiration that began our journey with WAGGING LOUNGE DOG RESORT.

The FIVE Pack!

Our Family Pack has grown in the years and include Tessa (Cavachon), Haru (Mini Poodle), Jina (Pomeranian), and Benji (Cavachon).
