"Tanner's is more than just another place to leave your dog.
It's a place that your dog will never want to leave."
Tanner's Canine Resort in Waldwick, NJ opened in June 2020, and was designed exclusively with your dog's safety & care in mind. The owners set out to create a facility with more outdoor space than indoor space for dogs to run & play all day. The entire property is ideally suited for the comfort, safety and enjoyment of your four-legged family members. Here's what makes us unique:
Tanner's is ready for winter! Our indoor play areas are all heated & ready for dog play during freezing temperatures, snow & icy rain fall. On mild winter days, dogs will play inside and outside. On those frosty winter days, dogs will play inside, with 10-15 minute potty breaks outside per hour.

Meet Tanner! Tanner was a beautiful Golden Retriever owned by Tracey Manne, who sadly passed away in 2012 from lymphoma. At that point, Tracey decided to walk away from corporate life & dedicate her career to the loving care and safety of dogs. It's only appropriate that our first facility is named for this beautiful inspirational creature. God bless you Tanner! Gone but never forgotten!
