Locations & Hours

We are proud to serve pups across the greater Boston area with four great locations in Somerville, Peabody,  Malden, and Melrose. For pricing information, go to each location’s individual page. 


Our Somerville location is conveniently located on Somerville Avenue, right in the heart of Union Square. We offer daycare in our 3,000 sq. ft. indoor facility as well as free weekday transportation to Peabody for crate-free boarding. Stop by anytime to visit Dennis, our orange tabby who loves greeting people and their pups, or to check out our wide selection of pet supplies for dogs and cats, including the highest quality foods, treats, toys and gear.

Our Peabody location is a pup playland! With over 6,500 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor space, your pup will have a great time joining us for daycare or for our crate-free boarding. Most dogs are happier and more relaxed with a crate-free boarding experience where they can play and relax with other pups. We’re happy to offer this service to pups across the Boston area with the possibility of pick-up and drop-off services.

Our Malden location is tucked away just off the Fellsway.  Daycare is held in over 4,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor space, allowing your pup lots of room to play under the watchful eye of our trained staff.  Stop in any time to ask us questions, or get to know us, we’d love to say hello!

Our Melrose location, Dogwood Cottage, is a luxurious daytime retreat for your furry family members. With multiple indoor climate-controlled play arenas and outdoor yards, plus a dedicated enrichment room, your pup can combine play and learning, leaving your dog both physically and mentally exhausted.  Come in for a day of play and find your next home-away-from-home.
