    Our Sweet Rose

    We adopted a Doberman from iWag and are so pleased and happy to have brought Rose home 1 week ago. She went through the 28 day training program with Drew as her trainer and she is so well behaved and a pleasure to have in our family. We visited her weekly during the training and Drew worked with her as well as us during that time. She now comes when called, sits patiently before entering while my husband maneuvers his walker through a doorway, walks through our neighborhood off leash by my side and is very much a well-behaved little lady. When we brought her home she was pretty skittish (even a plastic bag scared her to death!) so we think she'd been exposed to very little indoors in her previous life. Now, she's adapting very well and we can see a miraculous change in her since she's been home for only a week. We are so happy we found her and iWag and would recommend them as an adoption agency with their training program to anyone. Thank you Drew and iWag for finding us for Rose!

    I adopted a 6 year old English Bulldog named Remy from Life is Labs, and I couldn't be happier with the new addition to my family! I am a single woman, and was looking for an adult dog that could easily acclimate into my life and Drew and Kristie were wonderful in helping me find the perfect dog! They not only answered all of my millions of questions, but they asked a lot of questions of me, which really indicated their goal, to find the perfect match for both me and Remy. I would highly recommend them if you're looking to adopt a dog or if you need training or boarding - they are true professionals that clearly love what they do!

    We adopted a young yellow lab, Bo, from Life is Labs and couldn't be more pleased. Working with Kristie and Drew was easy and enjoyable. Kristie answered all of our questions thoroughly and quickly. Drew did a great job training Bo. He made the training sessions fun and easy as he worked with the whole family to insure that we all new how to interact with Bo so that we could be consistent in the commands that we used so that Bo would remain a well behaved, loving, fun dog. I will never have another dog that I don't take to Drew to get trained!

    WE adopted Priscilla from LifeisLabs in January. We wanted a calm adult well-trained dog and that is exactly what we got. Priscilla is the perfect companion for our 10 year old lab mix. Drew and Kristie went above and beyond to make sure that Priscilla was a good fit for our home, especially since we also had two cats. Priscilla is very smart and is eager to please, and after a few weeks of training is now the proud friend of two cats. We are so pleased with Priscilla and cannot recommend Lifeislabs highly enough!

    Molly on Vacation

    Our Maltese Molly never got boarded in 11 years. We either took her with us or we didn't go. Then we found I Wag and decided to take a short trip and see how she would handle being boarded. Well I'm happy to say we can now take a week long or longer trip and know our baby girl will be in great hands. Drew and staff are wonderful. They truly love our girl and spoil her just like we do. It is a blessing to go on a vacation and know that Molly is having fun as well. Thanks I Wag🐶

    We adopted Pollie, a 10 month old terrier mix. Over the years, we previously adopted 3 dogs from various rescues. This has been, by far, the most wonderful experience. From day one, Drew and Kristie guided us every step of the way. We embraced their philosophy for successful adoption. We liked the fact that we were involved in the training of Pollie and were able to visit and bond with her, over several weeks, prior to her coming home. It made for a smooth transition. Once home, it has been a pleasure to welcome such a well behaved puppy into our family. She follows commands, is affectionate and we can honestly say that we have not had any problems. Thank you, Drew and Kristie!!!!! We would highly recommend IWAG/ Life for Labs to anyone who is seeking to adopt a dog.

    We found our pup Anna on petfinder.com. When I first contacted Kristie she was excited and happy to reply with all the details to my many questions. My first impression was WOW! she is great. When we went to meet Anna, we met Drew too. Drew is AWESOME! He is thoughtful and willing to help at every turn. After visiting with Anna and Drew we decided to adopt, and the experience continues to be great. Anna went through the 28 day program with Drew and is such a good dog. We went out for the three additional sessions and learned as Anna learned. It was a really cool experience. Anna is so attentive to really anyone that she meets. The on leash and off leash training is incredible. Our family does a lot of hiking so off leash commands are very important. Anna responds the right way every time, which is a testament to the training program Kristie and Drew have put together. We meet Darian and Kim too. They are also great! Anna has been home for about a month now and we couldn't imagine a better fit. Drew and Kristie have followed up with us every step of the way! This experience with Drew and Kristie won't be our last!!! Thanks!!!!

    Our family had not had a dog before but were ready for our first. A friend recommended IWAG, and we are so grateful! They helped us find the perfect dog (Hunnie) and Drew did a fabulous job training her and us. Drew has been available for advice and wisdom since we brought Hunnie home. I am so impressed with how responsive and caring Kristie and Drew have been - they love their animals! We have already recommended them to friends who are interested in adopting. Thank you for making our experience so great.

    The team at I-Wag's Life is Lab's Rescue is amazing. They were incredibly knowledgeable and thoughtful in finding options for a dog that would fit our family. This process took phone conversations and two visits to their beautiful facility in Temple, GA. We chose a dog on our second visit who was then in four weeks of training. The progress was AMAZING and resulted in a dog that seamlessly entered our home and family. This is a wonderful organization with an incredibly caring and thoughtful team. Whenever anyone says they are looking for a dog, I share our wonderful experience!

    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!

    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.

    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!!!

    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
