    Drew took a wild rambunctious college dorm dog and in 28 days turned her into a welcomed addition to our family. Drew took the time to train our dog and then gave me the confidence to take what she had learned home with us. The staff was always courteous and professional. They always welcomed me and took the time to converse with me regarding our dog, even if they were busy with other chores. Well Done and Thank You.

    I can't say enough about Drew and the staff at Waterdog Kennels. My experience with them was simply amazing. I adopted a 3 month old lab/beagle mix puppy named Stella and she turned out to be a little more "rambunctious" than I expected. She was extremely hyper and would not listen or even acknowledge me when I spoke to her. I couldn't even put a collar on her or pet her without her completely going crazy. She pulled me around outside when I would walk her and she was quickly learning that she was the alpha. As a result, she was spending more time in her crate than out with me because I simply couldn't control her. I tried the PetSmart puppy class but I was ultimately looking for something more than just learning tricks and commands. I knew of Waterdog Kennels because of some friends of mine so I checked out the review on their website and I was immediately hooked. I signed Stella up for the 28 Day Training Program and have never looked back. The changes I saw in her from week to week were astounding. When I visited her during the first week, I could see such a huge change already. She was listening better and coming when called, and she was learning how to control her energy. We've been home for about a month now and the changes have definitely stuck. I now have a well mannered dog that is such a joy to be around. She still has her puppy spirit, but is definitely more obedient now. Drew and the staff definitely love what they do and love each dog as their own.

    Unbelievably caring folks looking for the permanent home for their special friends. Can't say enough about their vetting process and concern for putting the family and the pet in a good position to succeed. I have my best friend because of these folks!

    I can't say enough about Iwag. Our family has adopted 2 four legged family members through them. Kristie and Drew work tirelessly and fiercely for these dogs. It's not just what they do, it's who they are. Their training is top notch and we are so grateful every day for everything they have done for our family. They meticulously match families to dogs to do all possible to assure the best fit for all. It's not a quick process but it is worth it!! Phenomenal organization!!!

    This was our first time boarding with iWag. Drew and the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell that they love what they do and truly care about your fur baby. They have several gated yards for the dogs to play and run. They actually sleep in the same house with ALL of the dogs!! When I expressed that my dog is sort of a wimp when it comes to heat, a sweet staff member said they would put a fan on him during rest time. IWag is the best!! We will definitely use them again in the future.

    Kristie, Drew and the staff at iWag are simply amazing. We just picked up Peaches our Great Pyrenees from their 28 Day Off Leash ULTIMATE Training Program. We live in Clearwater, FL and make the drive to Temple, GA for this awesome training program. This is actually our second trip to iWag for training. We were so impressed with the training our yellow lab Morgan received we decided to use them again instead of finding someplace local. I would not hesitate to bring another member of our family to iWag for training! Morgan's Mom

    Need dog training or boarding? This is the only place to go. Your dog will love your for it. When you return, your dog won't want to leave to come home with you...that's how special it is.

    I can't say enough about iWag. We love our Bo but he was almost more than we could handle at 110 lbs. The training he (and we) received at iWag has made all the difference in the world! He is the best behaved dog we know now! We also travel a lot and iWag is a second home for him. He loves being there and we never worry about him when he is there. It's like a vacation to him!

    When we decided to add a new dog to our family, it was important that we find the right match for not just us, but for our 12-year old female Labrador. I found iWag through their website and reviews. Kristie and Drew worked with our hectic schedules during some of the coldest days last year to make sure we had the right fit for us. Our 'yellow' Lab Buddy has been the perfect addition. Everyone loves him, even our picky black Lab Mousey. To say that they are amazing is a vast understatement. You will not be disappointed with this place or this crew!

    We are so thankful to Kristie and her team, they did an excellent job with our little wild one. He is a sweet boy but when it came to recall, there was none. We were so stressed/frustrated and really out of options. So we made the trip to Temple, GA and checked them out. Everyone was great, informative, reassuring, professional but relaxed. Not having your dog @home for 4 weeks is a bit difficult but the end result is completely worth it! And you get to visit every weekend, to get YOUR training :) We would highly recommend this group. Our next rescue will be picked from Life is Labs!

    We really loved our experience with iWag. We spent over a year looking for a dog to adopt and worked with a few organizations before hearing about iWag. It was an amazing process and we found the perfect dog. iWag has made him even more perfect with their off leash training. It is our first choice for boarding and training. Thank you to Kristi and Drew and all their dedicated staff.

    iWag is a very professionally run rescue. They paired me with Kimora who has the perfect attitude and gentle spirit I was looking for. She is well behaved and very well trained by them. I was put through a rigorous adoption process which indicates how much they care about the dogs. If you are looking for a dog, this is the place to go.

    I love this place. I initially contacted Kristi and iWag to board our dog while we were out of town, we were looking to add a second dog but were a bit hesitant. After leaving Zoe for a week we were ready. Kristi and her staff watched Zoe and which dogs she interacted well with and helped us pick the perfect dog. Their off leash training is incredible. I have referred many of my friends to iWag for both training and adoption and they are as pleased as I am. I give them 5 stars across the board.

    We wanted a new "good dog" to add to our family, and we adopted a" great new dog" from Life is Labs Rescue, in Temple Ga. Kristie, the owner is laid back, professional, and knows all of her dogs. Krisitie spent time with us and made sure that our new pet was the perfect fit for our active family. We would highly recommend Life is Labs for training, boarding, or adoption of a new dog.

    My rescue "Rusty" was brought to Iwag on death's door and is now a healthy happy member of my family. The medical attention, rehabilition, and foster care was nothing short of a miracle for him. They are truly passionate about the health and welfare of each dog in their care.
