ATW Partners with TailWaggers Doggy Daycare and Gunderson Cleaners

Outagamie County Regional Airport announces new services designed to make traveling through ATW even more Quick, Close and Convenient. A Grand Opening event will be held Friday September 26 at 9:30am in front of the airport terminal to celebrate new drop-off and pick-up locations for TailWaggers Doggy Daycare and Gunderson Cleaners. A highlight of the ceremony will be the official opening of ATW’s new Pet Relief Area. Outagamie County Executive Thomas Nelson’s dog Lucy will make a special guest appearance!

According to Abe Weber, Airport Director “Our customers suggested both of these services, and we’re delighted to add them to the ATW experience. Both TailWaggers and Gunderson Cleaners are well known for top quality service; their willingness to add ATW as a drop-off/pick-up location definitely adds traveler convenience.”

The service works like this: TailWaggers Doggy Daycare staff will meet travelers at the airport, 6am-6pm, 7 days a week, and transport the dog back to TailWaggers Doggy Daycare’s Greenville location where s/he can play with human and canine friends all day long. When the traveler arrives back at ATW, TailWaggers will be there with a happy and tired pup to welcome the traveler home.

TailWaggers Doggy Daycare has sponsored the airport’s new Pet Relief Area, located just south of the baggage claim and rental car exit. Dogs will enjoy a clean, fenced-in area all to themselves, complete with a fire hydrant, park bench and sanitary station. Kristen Schlosser, TailWaggers co-owner, says ‘We’re excited to be working with ATW and offering these services to travelers. We hope this makes their travel experience more convenient and more enjoyable and we can’t wait to meet their dogs!”

Gunderson specializes in full service, professional cleaning of clothing and linens by the experts in fabric care. Hours are 5am-5pm, Monday through Friday, and items dropped off by 4pm will be cleaned and ready for pick-up after 4pm the next business day.
