A Chat with Fort Wags
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are the only dog daycare in the Portland metro area that is open to dogs of all breeds and levels of socialization. Fort Wags believes that all dogs crave social canine interaction, and we provide the structure and resources to help them be polite and have fun around other dogs.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The co-owners of Fort Wags have over a decade of experience working first-hand with shelter dogs and animal rescue groups. We were inspired by the dogs we have helped rescue, rehabilitate, and socialize to be well-balanced family pets. Watching dogs grow and develop constantly inspires our work.
What do you love most about your job?
Working with dogs and their people!
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
We recently accepted a dog to the Fort whose owner never thought it would be possible for him to attend dog daycare due to dog socialization issues. After just 15 minutes, the dog was incorporated into our pack, and was relaxed, playful, and enjoying himself. The owner was amazed and relieved!
