The staff at Abba’s Place Dog Grooming sees pets just as their owners do: as members of the family. As such, they perform a slew of services to keep up with pawed companions, including feeding, walks, litter-box cleaning, and boarding. They accompany their pet care with home-sitting services, such as watering plants, carrying trash out, and bringing in mail.
Brookline Grooming & Pet Supplies provides a fully equipped self-service cleaning zone for hound handlers to scrub four-pawed pals without sullying home bathrooms or kitchen sinks. A self-service dog wash provides guests with all materials needed to de-dirt Rover, from shampoo and water to towels and tail-waxing tools. An arsenal of brushes and combs detangle knotted coats, and high-velocity dryers dry fur more efficiently then forcing your pooch to car surf on the way home. Today's Groupon gets owners 45 minutes of washing time, which is available on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday through Saturday after grooming hours are over (usually around 3 p.m.). No appointment is necessary, but Brookline Grooming recommends that pet owners call ahead to check availability.

That seemed pretty cool." He later wrote a book, My Dog is Better than You & Me: Training Tips for Superior Pets, guaranteed to teach your dog to:
A Tails Readers’ Choice Award winner, Tail Waggerz accommodates canines with a 7,500-square-foot pet daycare facility, cage-free boarding, and grooming services. The caretakers devote their indoor and outdoor spaces to keeping guests stimulated with social games of fetch, hide-and-seek, and Texas hold'em. Dogs are invited for crate-free boarding after a personality analysis to make sure they'll get along with other dogs. Seven nights a week, caretakers sleep in the same room as four-legged guests that curl up on pillows or futons.
All posh dogs love shopping along Newbury Street – or at least their owners do. But when the pooches get dirty, it’s time to book an appointment at Pawsh Dog Boutique & Salon. Located in the Back Bay, just steps from Newbury Street’s glitz, the trained professionals on staff carefully trim each dog’s nails, clean their ears and even brush their teeth following the full-service grooming. This by-appointment-only salon also sells carry-on bags for small pups, haute collars, stylish jackets, comfortable dog beds, conditioning shampoo and a selection of natural foods, which is helpful for owners with finicky or allergic pets. After all that, your dog will still love the doggie treats on the counter most of all.
