Located in Westborough, MA, Wagtime (formerly Linda’s Doggie Playland) has been in operation since 1994.

Family owned, it is the oldest doggie daycare and boarding hotel in Central Mass.

Wagtime’s 40,000 sf play yard is the largest outdoor play yard in central Massachusetts and provides plenty of space for dogs to have fun and socialize. The yard is divided into separate areas so that dogs of similar size and/or personality can play together.

All dogs must attend a “Meet and Greet” before they are allowed to board with us or join our doggie playgroup. View Dog Requirements & Contact Us to setup a “Meet and Greet”

Our Mission

Our philosophy at Wagtime is very straightforward and very simple. Dogs are our first priority; their health, safety, and wellbeing are of utmost importance to us.

We only want the best for them, and know our approach, staff, and facility achieve just that. Two members of our experienced staff are in the play yard at all times.

In addition, our boarding hotel is staffed overnight for the safety of our four-legged guests.

Who We Are

Our passionate, well-trained staff provides personalized care and exceptional service to our guests on four legs, as well as their two-legged parents.

We accommodate the special needs of our four-legged guests from administering medication to attention to special diets. We adhere to a strict policy of updated vaccinations for all our guests.

At the end of the day you’ll pick up a happy & exhausted pup & as we say, “a good dog is a tired dog”.

We have customers that have been with us for years and travel from miles away
to give their dogs the opportunity to play and have fun all day.

Here is what some of our Happy Clients have to say about us

Our pup, Max, is a very social, high energy Golden Retriever. He loves life, but his happiness reaches a whole new level when he goes to Wagtime.  As soon as I cross a certain street driving toward Wagtime, Max realizes where he’s going, and he starts grinning and getting super excited.  When we pick him up, he is tired, content and ready to just hang out with the family.

The staff is always very friendly and quick to share helpful information. They have great systems in place to ensure that the pups get their treats, food, and any meds they may need.

Whether we take him to daycare or leave him for boarding when we travel, sometimes for extended periods, we feel very confident and comfortable leaving him at Wagtime.  He is always in great spirits when we pick him up, and it’s apparent that the team has taken great care of him.  My friends who have furless children are envious of the daycare that Max gets to enjoy. That says it all!

Our furry family members have been going to Wagtime (formerly Linda’s Doggie Playland) since 1992. We drive over half an hour from Wellesley, because we know our dogs will have a great time and be well cared for- it’s worth the trip!!! We are even more happy with the new owners –Mary and Mark have continued all the great qualities from before: an attentive caring staff, large play yards and a genuine love for the dogs! We highly recommend Wagtime!
