All about COOLWAGWe are dog lovers...just like you. We are located down the street from Crystal Bridges and the Amazeum on NE J Street. At CoolWag your dog can roam and play in our 12,000 square foot indoor facility or run around outside on the four acre property. Our Motto - We don't put baby in a cage. We believe your pet needs to be in a stress free environment with exercise & love help promote that. We separate dogs by size, age and personality and give them a place to run and play or relax on comfy couches and furniture...just like home. Coolwag takes all breeds and allow them into group play as long as they get along with people and other dogs. Even if your dog can have a temper and doesn't get along well with others, we do have places for them to be alone and chill. We accept dogs that have not been spayed or neutered, however if your female dog goes into Heat, we will contact you and give you the option of picking up your dog or allowing us to take your dog to our offsite location at an additional fee. We always have staff at the Coolwag facility, even at night every day of the year! At night, it's like a Slumber Party. The dogs curl up around our night staff and when the lights go out, they know it's time to sleep. There is very little barking and stress-free for the dogs. We also have comfortable rooms with beds if your dog is used to sleeping in a crate or needs that cave environment. In addition, we are dog trainers. We love to train new puppies and their parents. We use Positive Reinforcement training modeled around Ian Dunbar, legendary veterinarian, animal behaviorist and dog trainer. Our end goal is for your dog to look to you for guidance on everything, socialized to handle all sorts of dog interactions and confidently walk your dog in the park or the Downtown Square with 100's of people. Sport Training - dogs love to have fun, run and play fetch. However, not all dogs have the instinct and need to be taught how to play fetch, catch a Frisbee, play dog football or dive off a dock. And Bathing services to get those doggies clean. We no longer perform haircuts, but still offer baths, nails, glands, etc.). Your pet safety and security is paramount to us. Our staff have canine certifications with IBPSA (International Boarding & Pet Services Association) and our management is Pet CPR and First Aid trained. We have full surveillance of the facility and require everyone to be current on all their vaccines. We know you will miss your baby, so we provide you with updates and posts on Facebook and Instagram (there is sometimes a lag on very busy holidays). You are always free to call us as well. Locally run and operated since 2015. Coolwag staff is at the facility every hour out of the year. Your baby is never left alone.
Daycare & Hotel
Dog daycare and hotel boarding at it's best. In our spacious 12,000 sq ft facility, your dog has space to run around and enjoy. Our indoor arena has couches for lounging and room to run and our staff keep them busy with fun games and activities. Your pet will not be boarded in a cage. Fitness is important and your dog will not be bumping into walls or other dogs for lack of space!
Coolwag: Located a 1/2 mile North of Crystal Bridges and The Amazeum, we offer large indoor and outdoor arenas with individual sleeping hotel rooms. With our indoor and outdoor playgrounds with either cement pond or kiddie pools in summer, our guests get the activity and fun that they need and want.Coolwag is a dog's dream come true. With all hotel stays, your baby will have his/her own vacation. We don't "count" the number of times they aren't in their cage....they are in a play group enjoying the outdoors; running around, playing with other dogs and our Dog Handler, swimming or just taking a nap in the shade. At night, it's like a Slumber Party. The dogs curl up around our night staff and when the lights go out, they know it's time to sleep. There is very little barking and stress-free for the dogs. We also have comfortable rooms with beds if your dog is used to sleeping in a crate or needs that cave environment.

Call us at 479-273-3553 for details. Discounted Annual contracts are available..We do offer exit baths between $20-$45 based on size which does not include a full dry. If you dog needs to be dried (doodle etc.), please schedule a Full Bath which includes drying and nails and anal glands, if you request it. Info about our baths: We offer baths with all natural products, nails maintenance, paw-d-cure with or without color, glands and ear cleaning. We no longer offer haircuts but can transport your dog to a local groomer or veterinarian, as long as you schedule it with us in advance. Your dog is in a cage-free environment where they have the choice of playing first (or not). Matting: if the mats are not too tight to the skin, we will not want to get them wet so we will not perform their bath. We can bring them to a grooming salon if you make an appointment and request taxi service in advance. Itchy skin: We have some all natural products that can help or even eliminate it. Some topical solutions and some are ingested--some products are both like coconut oil. When you schedule your groom, make sure to indicate that your baby has "Itchy Skin". The owners of CoolWag have dogs with itchy skin and have been successful at treating them with a good quality food and a probiotic in the form of kefir milk. They put one or two tablespoons of kefir milk in their food at each meal and within a few days, the itching stops. When the kefir was discontinued, in about a week the itching returned. This is information to share on what has worked for them and is not a prescription or advice meant to replace that of a veterinarian. See this article, which is one of many: https://www.luckypuppymag.com/how-kefir-may-be-able-to-help-your-itchy-dog/
