Mobile Playgroups with Waggin' Wagon
Leave the driving to us!
Waggin’ Wagon is the ultimate solution for people who want help transporting their beloved furry friends to daycare. Unlike a carpool, it’s never your turn to drive the pups to school. A typical outing lasts three hours at daycare plus time in transit. Our guests visit our private dog park at Stay Pet Hotel, where they have hours to get the exercise and social interaction essential to the health of any dog.
This service is best suited for dogs who are comfortable in close proximity to other dogs. Dogs weighing 10 lbs and over are welcome to participate.
Waggin' Wagon is available Monday-Friday, except holidays. Sorry, no weekends. Check out our rates for mobile playgroups. They're comparable to regular daycare, really!
Playgroups Can Resolve Problem Behaviors
Does your dog
- Dig up the flower beds?
- Bark for hours?
- Channel their inner escape artist?
- Run loose in the neighborhood?
Some dogs just aren’t cut out to spend long hours alone. Others simply need more stimulus than we can provide at home.

Waggin’ Wagon is a short bus dedicated to transporting our dog guests to and from daycare. The bus interior is specially set up for the safety of every dog on board.
Our drivers are licensed and bonded, and they take your furry companion’s safety seriously. In fact, they drive like their own grandmother is on board. Also we keep the number of occupants low. Keeping the group small ensures everyone gets along on the ride to and from daycare. Many of our canine clients attest to how much fun riding in the bus is. Just imagine all that socializing before they even get to daycare!
How Waggin’ Wagon Mobile Playgroups Work…
Because of the time involved in introducing new dogs to Waggin’, we ask for a commitment of one outing per week.
We keep it simple:
- We pick ’em up from home.
- The dogs play like crazy at our doggy daycare space.
- We drop 'em off tired and happy.
Waggin' Wagon serves North Portland and Northeast Portland neighborhoods that are within a five-mile radius of Stay Pet Hotel. Doing so keeps transit time down and provides time at daycare.
Ready to Sign Up?
There are a few steps to the enrollment process.
- Get started by filling out and submitting an application, and we'll contact you to schedule a temperament test.
- Or you can call or email us at Stay Pet Hotel.
- You bring your pup to daycare for a free trial day of daycare.
- Once you're on the schedule, we pick you furry friend up individually for a trial day with Waggin' Wagon.
We take great care to make the transition to riding the wagon as gentle as possible. On a pup's first ride with us, we'll transport them individually. That way our four-legged guests can get accustomed to riding in the short bus without the excitement of meeting new dogs at the same time. Upon arrival at Stay Pet Hotel, we introduce the newcomer to fellow furry guests slowly. It's all about lowering stress and increasing the fun factor for all.
