Property Watch: Home For Canine Enthusiasts

Sept. 11, 2023

Must love dogs. No, we’re not talking about the rom-com from a decade-plus ago, but a business and home opportunity. The owners of Wiggle Butts & Waggin’ Tails are retiring. The thriving doggie day care and kennel operates out of a large sound-insulated building with 12 indoor/outdoor kennel units, two indoor play areas, a large grooming and bathing room and a spacious outdoor training/play area. Plus there’s a two bedroom, two bath home. It’s all located just north of M-72 at 12813 S Bugai Road, Cedar ($1,400,000; MLS #1911627).

Listing agent Erica Marshall says the 11-acre parcel provides plenty of opportunity for expansion should the next owner want to – and they should. “Their doggy daycare has a waiting list, and the boarding is always full,” she says, noting the property has generated interest both locally and with other kennel owners downstate. Both buildings are equipped with Generac generators, guaranteeing uninterrupted power supply even during outages. If working with man’s best friend is your dream, this could be your dream come true.
