Dog Boarding and Doggy Daycare
DAYCARE IS FULL.
Only taking dogs two (2) years old or older.
February break 2022 is full.
I offer a home away from home for your dog, i.e., my home, whether you want daycare or boarding/overnight care). When your dog is with me, we exercise, play, and cuddle. I give your dog lots of loving attention and companionship. Your dog will also be in a comfortable home for play time and down time.
Daycare is between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. M-F. I will pick up/ drop off if you are within a few miles of Roslindale, especially between Roslindale and West Roxbury.
Dogs must be 2 yrs old or older, have solid dog-on-dog social skills, and be able to settle down (i.e., no getting in other dogs' faces, smelling too long, or wanting to play nonstop). This is important for all dogs in the pack to feel comfortable.
Meet & Greet: Before I take your dog on as a "client" I like to know more about his/her particular likes and dislikes, vet info, behaviors, etc. We will fill out a questionnaire for this purpose. All dogs I take are friendly with other dogs, not excessive barkers and do not have severe separation anxiety (barking or crying when left). It is important that your dog check out my place. They pick up a lot of "data" from this!
Transitioning your dog: I don't believe in dropping a dog off at a strange place and a new person (me). So I like to have a meet and greet at my place, have your dog for one daycare day, and later, one overnight before he/she boards for a multi-night stay.
This transition plan also serves as an assessment, to make sure your dog is a good fit. It also helps your dog become familiar with me, my place and our routine, so when he/she comes to stay, they can hit the ground playing! Therefore please schedule the transition dates early enough so you have time to get another sitter if it's not a good fit for your baby.
