The Canine GuruAllston-Brighton, Allston, MA

Welcome to the Premier Dog boarding service in New England!

Looking for something special for your pup? Want them to have a vacation while you're away? No longer do you have to worry about students or part time sitters "watching" your pet, wondering if they've been left alone for long, or if they're having a good time. Our VIP service includes pickup, dropoff, full time supervision from the best in the business, and more! We have 7 acres of property, including a fenced yard area, a large shallow pond, hiking trails, and more, all in a secluded pup paradise out in the woods! No dangerous streets, cars, or gang-leash intersection crossings! We are experienced in dealing with groups of dogs, the company they love most. At my house, play time is all the time (except for nap time, which is well cherished). Let your dog to have a blast while you do; let them board with the Canine Guru!

I've got years of experience in dog training. Your lovely pet will have the time of their life. We are absolutely reliable and able to handle crises with the ease that only comes with repeatedly dealing with crisis. Through the entirety of my childhood, dog sitting was a mainstay in my life. I have also owned and raised my own dogs, including an 80 lb lab and my current 10 lb chihuahua/schnauzer mix. I know dogs as well as anyone, how they think, when they're upset, and what makes them happy, when they're being bothered or when they want to be a bother. You will not be disappointed with giving your pup the opportunity to vacation with us, and, big or small, I am sure your pup will be tired and happy when you pick them up!

We tend to board a few dogs at a time. We are very familiar with socializing, and they enjoy playing with each other more than anything. They are monitored very closely the entire duration of the stay to ensure everyone is safe and having a good time. My house is set up so that my 10 lb chihuahua/schnauzer mix has plenty of areas of her own, so don't fear for smaller pups (besides, the bigger guys are usually scared of them)! Rules and boundaries for each other are established with support from me, and are respected for the duration of the stay. Dogs are very capable of getting along in groups and tend to suffer less of an impact from owners absence, including separation anxiety, loss of appetite, and other similar issues, so they actually have a good time while you're gone instead of just missing you for days!

* We enjoy long stays! If you need someone to watch your pup for weeks or months, let them live with us; I'm used to having pups for long periods of time, and happy to have them! We had several clients dogs through times of housing issues, medical problems, family emergencies, and more. The pups have a great time and you'll never be left hanging, as we are available through every holiday year round! Let them become part of the family!

*** FREE pick up and drop off's will generally occur between 6-9pm in the greater Boston area. Therefore, if you are leaving for your trip before 6pm, you must prepare to book for the night before. ***

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! I'm always available and generally respond within a few minutes. There are no bad questions!

Fenced yard-dogs adored like familyNorfolk, MA

The best part of this job is that each time we have a new fur baby stay with us, they become part of our family and hearts. Rest easier on your well-deserved get away or business trip knowing your adored pup is being loved and cared for. Your dog will be engaging (with both humans and other dogs) all day, is welcome anywhere in the home, and won't be crated (unless he/she feels safe in their private space and you as an owner bring their crate).

We live in a relatively new single family home quiet neighborhood with Charles River access and have a safe, fenced yard with a nice mix of sun and shade. Our house is very comfortable with central air conditioning during the warm summer days. You will receive pictures throughout the stay of your happy dog having a great time of playing in the yard or taking a siesta…whatever their vacation vibe is! Our goal is that your dogs gets a vacation while YOU are on vacation!

I am a responsible, elementary school teacher looking to add some smiles to my day by taking care of your pet in your absence. It will be my pleasure to pamper, play and fawn over your dog until he or she is back in your loving arms. Our house is dog-centric, as dogs and humans are in interaction all day. I love all aspects of caring for dogs, from walks to "couch-potatoing" at night, to playing tug of war or nonstop games of throwing the tennis ball!

We are a "puppy home" at this time! We have two active, high energy pups: a puggle named Sushi and a "jug" (Jack Russell/pug) mix named Sake. They are happy, social little fellas that get so excited to have visitors and sleep overs with dog friends! They are babies so they have tons of puppy energy and may not be a great fit for a dog that prefers a quiet home.

We don't crate dogs (unless your pup likes their privacy and enjoys their crate, then please feel free to bring), and our goal is to create happy "mini packs" and your dog enjoys his/her new canine friends. It's amazing to watch dogs of different sizes, ages and breeds come together and bond, not matter how long or short the stay!

For the health and welfare of all dogs, we require proof of rabies, distemper and bortadella. Uploading a picture or scanning certificates into your pet's profile is acceptable.

Dogs have their choice of where they would like to relax and slumber. Couches and beds are of course included.

You can look forward to seeing photos of your pup during his/her stay, as I love catching them being adorable and am thrilled to pass the pictures on to you! Thanks for stopping by, check out some of my reviews and photos, and I hope to meet you and your pup soon!

Experienced Pet-sitterWest Concord, MA

I have been pet-sitting for 18 years, I have experience with dogs of all sizes and dogs with all different temperaments. I have pet sat for families with terriers to families with great danes, rottweilers and more. The families I work for pet-sitting love me because I'm reliable, clean, and their pet is always kept happy and safe. I have excellent references. I am home everyday, and my schedule is very flexible to my clients needs. I am able to help train dogs while they are in my care. Depending on the clients needs and the dogs needs I can bring them to do activities during the day (hiking, swimming, dog park) or I can just do the basic care. I take care of all the dogs as if they were my own.

Happy PalsMarlborough, MA

Welcome to Happy Pals located in convenient Marlboro, MA. We have been caring for dogs for over 27 years. Brady is the resident pet. He is an adorable 11 year old Cocker Spaniel – yes – named after Tom. We have had Brady since he was a puppy. Brady is a sweet and friendly dog so as long as guest(s) can hang out with him. Our home has a large, beautiful, private backyard that is perfect for your pups to play in. Each day stay for your pal includes two walks around our neighborhood as well as unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime. The inside area of our home has a large, open concept with plenty of room to walk around and play. During the dog days of summer, our home is cool as we have central air conditioning. If your fur-baby boards over the weekend, we will also include a trip to the local park! We are able to supervise your pups 24x7. We are able to provide transportation to a vet for any emergency situations. We have a great relationship with Brady’s veterinary clinic. Our home also is not far from emergency services at Tufts University in Grafton. Elaine has been certified in CPR and pet first aid in the past and plans to retake this course and become recertified. We will provide you with as many updates/pictures of your friend’s stay as you would like to receive. We can't wait to meet you and your fur-babies!

Benefits of staying with Happy Pals:

•We always strive to pamper your friend. Safety is top priority.

•Elaine and her husband Ken work closely together as a team during all visits. An advantage of staying with Happy Pals is that there are two adults always caring for your pet. If one has something unexpected come up, the other is always right there. If an unexpected emergency came up with both of us, we have a backup plan if the guest doesn't have an emergency contact. We have two different family members (both dog lovers and owners) who are nearby and have volunteered to help out if there were any unexpected emergencies with the caregivers. Both are home full time enjoying retirement and taking care of family.

•If you would like your fur-baby to go on field trips, we can discuss the possibility of going to local dog friendly parks such as Callahan State Park, Great Brook, or Gates Pond. Safety is always top priority so we can see if this would work well during a particular visit.

•Traditional boarding facilities charge extra fees for play time. Non-stop play times as well as walks are always included.

•Bottled water and Milk Bone treats are always available.

•We are very mindful of food allergies and food sensitivities. If your pet requires a special diet, we are happy to cook any special meals.

•If help is needed transporting the guest to our home for a stay, we can help with pick ups and drop-offs.

•Location is convenient to major routes (Rts. 495, 20, 30).

•We have a lot of room. If you feel as though your pal may need some private or alone time, we have a lot of room for he/she to stay completely separate if there may be another guest at the same time.

•Guests can sleep where they are most comfortable (living room, bedroom, etc.).

•We try to keep the number of guests at a time low to give each guest the most attention possible. We carefully consider the mix of guests if there will be some overlap. We always feel bad if we cannot accommodate a guest on a particular date due to numbers but we feel that it is important to keep numbers low for all guests to be happy and safe. If you know particular dates ahead of time, please let us know even if a formal reservation request isn't sent right away so that we can keep the dates in mind while scheduling. Summertime (Memorial Day through Labor Day) and major holidays are the busiest.

•If your pet has a scheduled grooming or vet appointment during their stay in a nearby town, we can make sure that they get there.

•Updates and pictures are sent to you of your friend throughout the visit. Also, please feel free to call or e-mail anytime to check on them.

•Flexibility in drop-off and pickup times. You are able to drop-off and pickup your pet at times when traditional boarding places are closed.

Please note: if our calendar says "booked" for particular dates that you are interested in, please still contact us with a general inquiry e-mail. It is possible that a day that says "booked" could also be a day that another guest is leaving.

We have enough room to accept several dogs; however, it is always our goal to have no more than 1-2 guests at a time to ensure that every guest receives a lot of individual attention. More dogs are listed in the profile to have flexibility with the calendar since some guests leave and come on the same day.

Confirmation at booking:

Up-to-Date vaccinations;

Flea/tick preventive treatment;

Negative fecal exam.

Thanks.

Elaine, Ken, and Brady (woof)

Panda & Pals Pet VacationsWayland, MA

Hi, my name is Kayla and welcome to Panda & Pals Pet Vacations!

I have always had pets in the home ever since I was little. I've had dogs, cats, mice, rabbits, fish, snakes, birds, and a hamster! So I have some experience all over the place when it comes to animals. I am currently in school as an Animal Science major, later on looking to complete my veterinary medicine degree at Tufts!

When you have your fur/feather/scale baby stay with me they will have endless amounts of love. If they have medical conditions and/or take medications I am comfortable administering medications. There will be play time and cuddles whenever their heart desires. If they prefer to be alone, I can give them space and their own area to get comfortable.

I do have cats and they are very friendly/tolerable of dogs. If your dog has never been around cats we will be able to provide a space for them to see if they have any prey instincts and whether or not they will be able to tolerate being arounds cats. Most dogs who have never been around them are fine after sniffing them for a while! I have a big fenced in yard that we are currently undergoing some changes with so bear with me while it looks a little ugly. We also have a dog pool! Yes, a cool specifically for dogs. It is pretty awesome. I am also able to provide long walks around the neighborhood and can take your fur baby to multiple local hiking trails.

I am a big hiker and love being outside so if your pet likes going on adventures we will go together! Every fur baby vacationer is guaranteed an outdoor adventure if they want to go exploring! If your pet prefers to stay at home, that's okay too! We can stay at home and snuggle, play with toys, and bark at each other! Whatever works for your baby!

Our business is run by me, my sister, and my grandmother. I am the primary caregiver and I work right next to our home at the RIte-Aid / Walgreens. Your pet is NEVER left alone and will always have hands-on care while with us. We also have a veterinary clinic right next to our house should an emergency ever come up. We take all first-time clients on Rover, but we have our own app for your phone, as well as our own website. All of our prices are the same as on Rover, but we also have additional activities and events on our personal site/app! If your dog is a good fit, we would be happy to add you to our continued client list!

Family with fenced yard loves Dogs!Natick, MA

**Available during Quarantine!

Our home is made up of 2 adults and 2 kids all quarantined fully throughout this time. We are available for phone or video meet and greets. Will do all drop off/pick ups in the backyard while masked.

If an essential worker (broadest definition of anyone who needs to be in the workforce during this) needs help, please contact us for deeply discounted care. Thank you for all your service.

**

Our family loves dogs, we'd love to watch your special pup while you are away. We have no dogs of our own, so your dog would have all our attention! We will watch, walk, snuggle, and take care of your pup as if it was our own. We have a large, totally fenced, fully secured backyard! We have added security cameras all around the backyard, for added security and peace of mind. Our yard is very large, we got the fence so our doggie guests have the best possible time while staying with us. They love chasing balls and lounging with us back there. It is basically like having a dog park in the backyard :-).

We work from home, so are basically here to hang with your dog 95% of the time. We may leave the house at times for an errand or dinner, so your dog would need to be able to be trusted at our house for a few hours. We have 2 crates, so if your pup is not trusted with the run of the house, we have crate options if that is an option for them. For nights, we'd take care of your dog in the same way you do (crate or with us).

I understand that dogs are a part of the family and will send texts and photo updates daily so you are able to relax comfortably knowing your dog is in good hands.

Student dog trainer and pet loverLexington, MA

I am still taking on clients during the COVID 19 pandemic. Please feel free to ask what special precautions are being taken by me during this time to keep my clients safe and prevent the spread of this scary virus. Stay safe everyone!

Hi there!

My name is Anna S! I am a long time animal lover and carer. I have been doing dog walking for over a year and have worked with dogs & cats off all shapes and sizes. I am currently halfway through a 18 month dog training course that includes dog CPR and first aid. My long term dream is training service dogs for the disabled.I share my home with my mum, two cats and two dogs. We are all very friendly and enjoy the company of other animals.

I have loved working with animals from a young age and it’s the only thing I can ever see myself doing. I love dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes and grow quite a strong bond with the animals in my care.

My two dogs are very friendly, I have a senior yellow lab and a young border collie puppy who is in service dog training. My puppy absolutely loves sharing his home with new friends and my cats have been used to pets coming in and out from a young age.

I currently run doggy daycare Tuesday - Thursday. I am available on some Mondays and Fridays as well as weekends so feel free to send a request for any day! I cut off daycare at 6 dogs (including my two) and I am home all day for the pups. Daycare pups will not be left alone at any time. I ask that dogs are fit enough for long walks as we circulate at least one conservation land/dog park a day. For daycare I prefer to take dogs that are ok to be off leash but it is not a requirement and is something that I work up to no matter how comfortable the dog is off leash with his or her owner.

For dog boarding services I welcome dogs of all ages and sizes. I am home most of the time and dogs who are boarding in my home will be supervised when together and not left alone for more than 4 hours at a time. After being on rover for a while I have learned a lot and have updated a list of requirements for dogs entering our home.

- I do not accept un neutered males over 8 months

- I require a meet and greet with new clients

- If your dog is sick, please contact me and I will help you find a house sitter.

- I will accept no more than 1 - 2 dogs for boarding at a time.

- No outside toys as I have unfortunately had dogs resource guarding

- Dogs may not exhibit any signs of aggression in any form and will be separated for the duration of the stay if aggression arises.

- Dogs will be returned to owner or an emergency contact if a bite (to a dog or human) draws blood.

- At least one emergency contact is required.

- Pets must be up to date with shots and flea and tick treatments

- Pick up and drop off times are from 6:30am - 8:30pm, we all need our sleep!

- I cannot accommodate to dogs that have a high prey drive as we love our cats!

- Please don't ask for references from previous clients, it is unprofessional for me to ask past clients for this as many have left testimonials to read! I can provide you a personal reference if that is something that makes you feel better about leaving your pet in my care :)

I promise your dog will be treated with only love and kindness! Perhaps they will even enjoy their vacation more than you! I will provide frequent updates and pictures of your dog during their stay and keep you updated on your pet's condition at all times! I look forward to working with you and your four legged family member!

Miss my best friend on long walksUpton, MA

Fenced back yard in country atmosphere next to small livestock farm. Lifetime of experience working around animals of all kinds. Over 30 years experience working large dairy farm. Degree in Animal Science from UMass Amherst Stockbridge School. Walk miles every day year round. Retired dedicated dog lover who will provide lots of attention to your pet. Prefer active dogs who love to walk, run, jump, fetch, and have fun. Senior dog experience with my own dog now departed and several Rover dogs. Available 7 days/week year round. In periods of high demand, I often have two or more dogs together, and most often this matching experience has proven beneficial for the dogs involved. For this reason, I can only accept dogs who are reasonably sociable and able to co-exist with other dogs, and I may require a Meet & Greet here or other evidence of compatibility for first-timers. I offer discounts for two or more dogs from same family and for extended stays. I really do have a special sense in communicating with animals. I know every dog has different individual needs, and I craft my care program accordingly. At present, I focus on providing only the best possible dog boarding experience, typically from a single night to two weeks or so, with extended stays welcome based on current availability. I am not able to accept requests for house sitting, doggy day care, drop in visits, or dog walking (although boarding includes two or more long walks on leash - up to 4 miles total - every day). Your vacation or time away should be a great experience for you and your dog. I can make it happen for your dog. The rest is up to you.
