Dog Boarding and Doggy Daycare

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. Boarding times are worked out between us.

Dogs must be hypoallergenic, three (3) yrs old or older, have solid dog-on-dog social skills, and be able to settle down. No separation anxiety, excessive barking or any aggression. Males must be neutered.

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.  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). I like to have a meet and greet at my place, have your dog for one daycare day, and if boarding, 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 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.


Boarding Fee:*
*incurs day fee ($40) if dropped off before noon/ picked up after 3 p.m. 
*Earliest drop off time is 9 a.m. Latest pick up time is 8:30 p.m.

Your dog will receive:
  • An experienced dog caregiver who LOVES dogs and is COMMITTED to your dog - it is not a "side hustle"

  • A home setting; comfy, homey, can play or nap, sit on my lap, allowed on couch and bed, etc.

  • Inside and outside play

  • Constant care as I am home all day and night, except for errands

  • A person who can tune in to  your dog to get to know his/her personality and needs

  • One-on-one attention

  • Fenced-in yard

  • Lots of green spaces to exercise

  • Other doggy friends to play with

  • Tons of affection

  • A transition so he/she is familiar before longer stay (boarding)

  • A whole day and/or night for the cost of a couple of walks

(It's really a big ole' love fest and a pretty good deal!}
