Tailwaggers. For the discerning tail since 1996.
We are a boutique style doggy daycare offering a very personalized service to both our two legged and four legged clients with grooming, dog walking, daycare and more in the west end of Toronto.

Welcome to Tailwaggers. Established in June 1996, Tailwaggers was born for the love of dogs.

Tailwaggers is a boutique Doggy Daycare located in the heart of the Junction in the west end of Toronto. We offer personalized care to each of our members. Unlike the bigger factory style daycare centres, our main objective, since 1996, has been high quality not high volume. This is to ensure that your pooch receives all the love, attention, training, playing, walking and of course...belly rubs that they deserve.

Our Customers Say it Best.

Meet the Tailwaggers

Due to the greater demands of daily life, many pet owners are unable to spend as much quality time with their furry babies as they would like. Extended working hours and family demands often result in long, lonely days at home for our four legged friends. Without the proper exercise and socialization, dogs can begin to display behavioural issues such as needless barking, destructive behaviour and separation anxiety. Tailwaggers provides peace of mind for our two legged clients and a variety of services for our four legged clients guaranteed to make tails wag!

In times of joy, all of us wished we possessed a tail we could wag." ~W.H. Auden



In 1994, Adria Kowalsky began walking dogs, part time, while attending U of T to become a teacher. However, instead of teaching, her love of her pooches inspired her to open Tailwaggers in 1996. (One of the first dog walking services in Toronto). Her love and passion of dogs has only increased over the years and in 2010 Tailwaggers expanded to include a Doggy Daycare & Grooming Salon!





Erin has over 10+ years of grooming experience. Her gentle touch and care does not go unnoticed by all of the pooches she grooms and makes beautiful. As the first official employee hired by Tailwaggers in 2010, she also has developed a close relationship with all of the dogs in daycare.

As a young child, Shania has always known that working with dogs is what she was born to do. Shania started at Tailwaggers in 2013 as an enthusiastic co-op student who couldn’t get enough of the dogs! Within the last couple of years she has graduated into a full-time staff member in which the pooches all love and adore.

As sweet as can be and one of a kind, Jennifer (aka Sassy) started out as an eager co-op student in 2016. She was one of those girls who would stay passed her hours or until closing time to offer a helping hand with a smile and to love the pooches. Being a dedicated family person it is clear that she has a huge heart and would make an amazing addition to any business. How luck are we to have this Sassy Girl?
