Our Story

Our dream of opening a pet care business was literally drawn up on the back of a napkin! We found ourselves searching for a place close to home that would give us and our 2 energetic dogs a place to go to during the hot summer months, the wet, muddy spring season as well as the bitterly cold Midwest winter months when the temperature dropped well below zero. The obvious answer was to build an indoor, climate-controlled dog park!

As the plans for our park grew and evolved, we asked, what other fun, engaging services could we provide to our local dog community that was new and different? Pools. Indoor heated pools for dogs to swim in for exercise or play! In a dog park, you see a lot of ‘wagging’ tails! And what do dogs do in the pool? They paddle! Wag N’ Paddle was born!
