The dock diving pool at Wagging Tails in Wolcott CT, was created from an idea by 9 year old, Natalie Lofquist - read the article about Wagging Tails & Natalie's idea in Pets+ magazine here. Natalie is now 11 yo and a Youth Handler, with her labradors, Ella and Teddy. She is very excited for the 2020 season, and to see the friends she made, and the dogs she met, during the 2019 season.
