Doggie Boarding Service in Columbia &
Howard County, MD

At Wagging Lounge Dog Resort, it is all about rest for the dogs. We are not a typical kenneling facility, and instead, we offer a little doggie paradise with a lot of relaxation, pampering, and enjoyment for your dogs. All dogs must pass an Evaluation and must be able to play in a social environment with the pack. Please refer to the Enrollment section to see the full list of requirements.


*A Full Day of Daycare is included with Boarding.

*Access to both Indoor & Outdoor Play Yards with the pack!

*A Standard suite, Quiet Cottage, or LUX Villa depending on availability and choice.

*Plenty of love, snuggles, and attention from our experienced staff.

*Meal & Treat preparation and distribution brought from home or in-house.

*Medication (non-life sustaining including eye drops, supplements, pills) may be administered. There is no charge for this service. More detail in the Blog section and in FAQ's Section.

Going on a trip soon? We recommend starting the registration process and scheduling a FREE Evaluation  a few weeks in advance. 

Standard Rooms & Luxury Villas

We offer Standard accommodations and Private Luxury Villas for those who want their pets to get the best pampering experience.

The Boarding Price includes the daycare service as well, so your pooch gets all the benefits of supervised play and socializing with other dogs. We follow the same schedule as the Daycare pups.

We provide whatever activity your pup prefers and give our furry guests their rest/nap time in their private room or suite. After the day's activities, your pup will get one last potty break before they are taken to their rooms.

All of our suites & kennels come with a raised bed or bedding, filled water bowls, and a small blanket or cushion.

We cater to dogs of all shapes, sizes, ages, and breeds. Check out the requirements for enrollment.

Space for Overnight Boarding is limited, and Reservations are required at least 48 hours in advance. Holidays are normally fully booked many weeks in advance by our Parents.

You can also upgrade to one of our Luxury Villas! Villas are private and fully furnished with pillows, stuffed toys, blankets, and water/food bowls.


Some pooches have their cake & eat it too!
