Wag your tail for Wag Club, the new doggie boutique and day care located across from the Pier 6 Dog Run in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Wag Club fills a void for dog services in this part of the neighborhood offering day care, grooming, training, play groups, and overnight stays. Founded by John Squires and his Jack Russell Terrier, Lucy, Wag Club strives to be a home away from home for Brooklyn dogs and a place where their humans can interact.
We recently scoped out the spot during their open house and liked what we saw. Upon walking into Wag Club expect to be greeted by friendly staff at the storefront which carries gear and specialty items such as Isle of Dog toiletries and fashionable Harry Barker pooch wear. Behind the retail space is the play/day care area outfitted with non porous rubber flooring that’s easy on the paws. The loft like area felt big enough for small to medium sized breeds to have adequate play. The space also houses a grooming station and kennels for boarding.
Here’s a few things we like about Wag Club:
They offer a walking pick-up and drop-off service in Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill to and from their location. For an extra $3-$5, this is a nice perk. Taxi service is coming soon according to their website.
They foster a sense of community by supporting animal charities such as Best Friends and Waggy Tail Rescue. Stay tuned for a charity calendar featuring local dogs.
We’ll let you know about Laly’s upcoming spa day at Wag Club for grooming. In the meantime feel free to share your Wag Club experience in the comments section.
