Our boys love Miss Lauren and the pack at Wagglebottoms! They had so much fun at daycare! We were so thankful to not have to worry about them while we were away in Indy for a full day event. She even picked them up early in the morning and allowed us to pick up in the evening after we returned to Muncie. Thanks for a great experience and we look forward to coming again soon!

I love every time I come here. Great staff and great work. This is the only place I will take my Shih Tzu because I know they are clean, professional, and have a love for animals. Pricing is pretty reasonable also! 5 stars for sure!

Left our miniature schnauzer here for the week of fall break. Loved the fact that we were able to text anytime of day to check on him! We were even sent photos throughout his stay! I also liked that they aren’t left in a kennel all day. They get plenty of play time outside in a nice fenced in yard. Also had him groomed while he was there. Great job! I would definitely recommend Wagglebottoms!!

After talking to owner, Lauren, I knew this was the right place for my son’s dog, Sean. There is someone there 24/7 . The dogs get to play outside…lots of room. They have a nice clean place to sleep in. Lauren tries to make it feel as close to home as possible. They feed them good dog food and treats! Sean was bathed with nails trimmed for trip home. . They even washed his blanket !

During her time as a volunteer at Muncie Animal Care & Services, Lauren began working on her passion project, Wagglebottoms. Lauren poured her heart and soul in to this project, making Wagglebottoms, in my opinion, the finest daycare and boarding facility in the East Central Indiana area.

I have visited Wagglebottoms on a professional level and a personal level. At all times I have found the facilities to be clean, the animals well cared for, and the staff to be knowledgeable and courteous. In my time as Director of Animal Services of Muncie, we consistently hear praise and accolades for the quality of care provided to their clients.

I find Wagglebottoms to be so exemplary, I am not only a professional admirer of Lauren’s accomplishments, but also a client of her facilities.

This is the best kennel we have ever taken our pets to. The owner, Lauren, is great and obviously loves the animals the stay. I have never felt so comfortable leaving my pets with someone.

I loved my first experience at Wagglebottoms. I had rescued my Rottweiler from the Muncie Animal Shelter but could hardly stand the smell of her. I knew I needed to get her bathed ASAP so I went to Happy Clean and Smart in Muncie but they turned me away because they said they were at capacity, then I remembered Wagglebottoms off of the by-pass and I headed there. I was greeted by a very sweet and kind lady (the Mom of the owner) and she graciously helped me get Baby (my Rottweiler) in the bathing tub and get her cleaned up. All the while other dogs that were there for the day were wagging around. I was pleased with the experience and posted on Facebook that evening. As it turns out at least 4 of my friends have checked them out or have used their services since. I will go back for sure. Thank you Lauren and your Mom for a great place for our furry friends.

The people that work here are very friendly. Our pug is always happy to go even for staying the weekend. They know him by name. We never have to worry about him when he stays because he’s with good people.

Very satisfied with care of Milo.

I brought Sophie, my 170 lb Mastiff in for a bath. This was her first professional bath. She was a little unsure but the people at Wagglebottoms made her feel very welcome. They were very patient and let her get used to her surroundings. Then the bath. It was a little struggle getting her in but once in it was all good. Then the blow dry. Sophie is scared of the sweeper, so when she started the blow dryer, I thought, this won’t work. But much to my surprise, this lady had Sophie almost asleep while she dried her off. Then the nails. I don’t think Sophie even knew she was getting her nails trimmed. This was a great experience and the people were very caring. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend this facility that truly care about animals.

It was fantastic!! We will definitely be back.

We wanted our dog, Bear, to join us while we are visiting our son at Ball State for the family weekend. Bear is too big to be accepted in hotels and Wagglebottoms was the best solution. They were very accommodating with drop off and check out times. We could see that everyone there is doing their best to make your pet feel comfortable. Wagglebottoms offers an affordable high quality service. I would definitely recommend them, and use their services again.

I have been bringing my dog Zeke to Wagglebottoms for months now. I absolutely love the staff. They all love Zeke like their own. Lauren is super amazing and flexible with taking care of my little guy. I love how I can leave him all day and Zeke is taken care of. Wagglebottoms is the best I have found in all of Muncie!

We’ve boarded our dog here twice, and been deeply impressed both times. They know each dog by name and are excited to see all of them. They bathe the dogs before sending them home, and they let them play together, supervised, with like temperaments. This past time, our dog came back looking healthier and happier than when I dropped her off, and they sent us regular “report cards” to let us know how she was while we were away. I definitely recommend Wagglebottoms! Be sure to book early, since they’re pretty popular.

When it comes to dog grooming I am very picky. To me the groomer should be professional and complete. This team does the best job I have ever seen. Now let’s complicate by saying we have a Great Pyrenese. These dogs have a second coat of fur that blows out a couple of times a year and if you don’t take great time a care a bath can make it worse. This team takes the time and our big guy come home beautiful and with much less shedding. (He’s a Pyr, No such thing as no shedding 😉 ) They do a great job on both dogs nails as well. Good boarding experience. Our dogs look so forward to going here and the staff is great to them.

Clean, courteous, friendly. “Winston played til he was exhausted.”. A dog park like setting where like sized pets are taken out for exercise. Mr. Winston was shampooed before being returned to me. Excellent value, and service.

Five Stars, Sam F.

My dogs love going to Wagglebottoms. They do an excellent job grooming my dogs plus they are spoiled with attention. I also buy my dog food, and leashes here, too! Wonderful, wonderful place!

Five Stars, Ashli S.

Wagglebottoms is awesome. We took our spaniel mix in to get a bath and groom and he looked so happy coming out. They are definitely trying to make sure they take good care you and your dog. Prices are super reasonable and are competitive to other places around town. We will definitely be taking our dog back again and again.

Five Stars, Derek M.

I took my 3 month old pup here for daycare as I had to go out of town for the day, and he loved it! He was worn out, and he kept following his new friends around! They seem to really care about the pets. I will definitely be back!

Five Stars, Esther B.

We love this kennel, Lauren the owner loves animals, and it shows.

Five Stars, Windy O.

Wagglebottoms consistently exceeds our expectations for the care of our cats while we’re on vacation. The owner is absolutely amazing. It’s obvious she deeply cares about each animal that arrives at her place!

Five Stars, Madison M.

The only place I would ever board my dog!

Five Stars, Olivia G.

My wife and I bring our dog here at least once a week. They really seem to know what they are doing here and our dog loves going there he never seems to want to leave. Usually in the morning he is waiting by the door trying to run to the car so we will take him to daycare. Very affordable and very nice place to go.

Five Stars, Jeremy B.

We take our dog Gus to get a bath occasionally and he was in daycare when we moved to our new home. They take great care of the animals and are very friendly with the owners of the pets also. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Five Stars, Doug Z.

I love the owner, Lauren. She takes great care of my 3 large babies (dogs). She carries a great line of dog & cat food, as well as collars, harnesses, and leashes. My dogs love it there and always come home wore out from playing. Can’t say enough get things about this place! I wish she would open a second location in Yorktown.

Five Stars, Angela H.

They took great care of my animals!

Five Stars, Betsy C.

Amazing place that will care for your pet as you would.
