Boarding & Daycare Accomodations

We HIGHLY recommend a MEET-AND-GREET prior to their stay with us. 


Thinking of choosing Sara's Waggy Tails? We're located in Powell, TN! We are a family farm setting where dogs not only play in the fenced in areas, but where there are several acres to walk the dogs as well. We do allow dogs to play together, if their individual temperaments allow. If your dog does better just being with humans or playing alone, we can accommodate that. All play is supervised by at least one human. 

Check In Area

We have a closed off check in area to ensure safety between dogs that are playing in the play area and the dogs being checked in, just in case their personalities meshing or nervousness.
We send video/picture updates to let you know how your dog is doing!
We have the following appliances on site: Washer, Dryer, Sink, Microwave, Refrigerator/Freezer.
Lick Mats: If your animal is anxious, we offer peanut butter on lick mats served cold!

Indoor Play Area

We keep toys out for the dogs to play with during multiple play groups per day. We keep different types of toys out, to ensure your dog is getting his/her own sensory needs (squeakers, stuffed animals, hard toys). We match the dogs up by temperament and watch to make sure dogs are good together before we allow play to start. If a dog needs a play group by his/herself, that is easily accommodated.

Individual Kennels- Indoor

 The main four kennels are 5'X10' on the inside (first four kennels) and 4’X 8’ (for the other three kennels) and have their personal doggy door that goes out to their individual outdoor areas, which are asphalted. They're always able to access indoor and outdoors when we have to step out. We also have a visible barrier between each kennel for if someone is intially fearful/reactive of their neighbor. If needed, we will cover the full side, because we want ALL dogs to feel their best with us- like they're on their own vacation!

Individual Kennels- Outdoor

They have the doggy door to access inside and outside portions at any time.- There's two solar lights outside of the outdoor portion of the kennels that is motion sensored at night so they won't have to potty in the dark.

Outdoor Community Play Area

We have a large outdoor play area for dogs to enjoy the outdoors and play either with the adults and/or with other dogs! We watch their body language and personality before attempting to introduce them to other doggos. We have a dog pool, hanging bungee rope, and other outdoor toys to suit everyone's needs. 
**EACH DOG GETS A  MINIMUM OF 3 PLAY GROUPS PER DAY, plus individual time to walk, play with humans, whatever they tell us that they need.
