Clarksville canine lovers open Wagging Lounge Dog Resort in Columbia

After dog-sitting at their home in Clarksville for years, Jimmy and Sumi Kim decided to turn their passion for animals into a business. They opened Columbia's newest hub for pets in a 7,200-square-foot space in April.

At Wagging Lounge Dog Resort, the husband-and-wife team offers dog daycare, boarding, grooming, training, bathing, a spa and a treat bar.


Jimmy Kim, a former staff member at Small Miracles Cat and Dog Rescue in Ellicott City, says opening the business has been a dream come true.

"This county has really served me and my family really well, and it's a great feeling to be able to serve the community back in some way," he says.
