Perfect place to adopt, train and board!, 11/17/2014

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.

Great Experience, Excellent Results, 11/17/2014

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!

Absolutely the Best

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!

Dog Gone Good!

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.

Super Rescue Organization!!

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.

Best Ever

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.

Amazing Rescue/Adoption

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.

Supersize Lab Training

We brought our 115 LB black lab to training and could not have asked for a better experience. Walking Zeus was next to impossible before he went to the 28 day off leash training. Now walking him is a breeze and one of his favorite activities. I will say it was tough to leave our family pet for the full 28 days but it has made life with a family dog much more enjoyable for him as well as us. I highly recommend Kristie and her team to train your lab. They do a phenomenal job and we could not ask for better results! 5 stars all the way!

Best for our Beagle

Sometimes we travel with our beagle, Molly, but when we can't we know that iWag is just where she'll stay while we're away. She knows when we are getting close to arriving and she is always happy and excited to go there. We have great peace of mind knowing that she will be safe and cared for as if she is one of their very own. The staff at iWag is as great with the people as they are with the pets! The best boarding services: iWag!

Bed and Breakfast even for a Great Dane

Our Great Dane Hugo found the best bed and breakfast! Not only did he come home cleaner than we boarded him, he seemed really happy. When we arrived to pick him he was having so much fun playing with his new friends that he almost didn't come to us when we called. That is when you just know you have found a great place to leave your friend when you have to get away.

They don't get any better!

The Atlanta Weim Club Rescue has been boarding dogs at Waterdog Kennels for several years. Many of our rescued Weims come into rescue with all types of temperament issues. Kristie and Drew worked with each dog individually, on a daily basis. It was their knowledge, patience, and understanding that we feel gave these unadoptable dogs a chance to have a family of their own. We are forever grateful to the staff at Waterdog Kennels and especially Kristie and Drew for all that you have done for our gray dogs.

Top-notch care for pets from really picky owners!

We boarded our 10-lb Shih-Tzu and 22-lb Schnoodle for four days recently. Saying my husband is picky about his dog (the Schnoodle) is an understatement! Water Dogs was wonderful! The staff is warm and caring and obviously love all of the dogs, no matter the age or size. They are well-supervised and get lots of play time and attention. I would highly recommend them and will definitely use them again.

They made a champion out of my dog!

When we first brought our dog to Waterdog Kennels he was an out of control puppy that would take any chance he could to run off. After five weeks of training he was a well behaved pup, who understood what the word "Stay/Wait" meant. Two years later we know take him to dock jumping competitions where he is off leash, around plenty of other dogs and children and he is always the best behaved one there! We could not be any happier with the service we received from Kristie and her staff and we would recommend her program to anyone! Thanks Waterdog Kennels!!

They love, love, love, love, love, love, dogs!!!!!

We have boarded our two Havanese with Kristie and Drew at least a half dozen times for periods of 3 days to 3 weeks. We always recommend WK as "YMCA camp for dogs". We chose them initially because somebody is on site 24/7 and the dogs are never left alone. Great facilities for all size dogs and, did I mention, they love, love, love, love, love, love dogs!!!!

An investment in your dog you will not regret!

I will never forget the following 2 days in my life: the day we picked up our new puppy lab and the day that we finally had enough of her out of control behavior! I was walking this out of control puppy when someone suggested that I get her professionally trained. I found Waterdog through web site recommendations. After coordinating with Kristie who was great in describing the program, we left our then 6-month old for the off-leash training. In terms of obedience, she was a completely different dog after the program. I enjoyed that I was a part of the program in that the training of her involved my visiting and also being taught to take advantage of her training (sit, here, easy the key words that the dogs learn). She has now been with our family for 4 years and I continue to walk her regularly off leash with no issues. Recently, we decided to get another. We considered several breeders, but ultimately decided to go with a rescue from Waterdog. They have such amazing dedication that they saved this very young puppy and the rest of the litter from poor conditions. He spent 2 months with us beginning when he was about 4 months and then I returned him for the off-leash. I just visited and he was as I described above with our first lab. Kristie and Drew are outstanding trainers and 2 of the best people you will have the pleasure of getting to know.
