Our Somerville location is the longest-running daycare in Somerville and one of the only daycares licensed and inspected by the city. We are proud to serve Union Square and the greater Boston area with a convenient location right on Somerville Ave. When you visit us in Somerville, you’ll likely be greeted by Dennis, our resident orange tabby who loves pups and thinks he is one himself!

In Somerville, we offer daycare, quality dog and cat supplies, and free weekday transportation for crate-free boarding and daycare at our larger Peabody location.

We also have a wide selection of pet supplies for both dogs and cats.
