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.

Back Bay Dog Walking’s canine caretakers lend a helping hand to busy pet owners within Boston city limits by providing services designed to exercise and entertain four-legged friends seven days a week. Parents of new puppies up to 6 months of age can rest easy knowing their babies are being taken care of during the day with the puppy program, where an experienced sitter provides three walks throughout the day as well as a midday meal. Meanwhile, play groups provide energetic pooches the chance to spend a full hour romping around a fenced-in dog park with like-minded mutts.

With multiple locations as well as mobile scanning units, the Animal Rescue League rescues and cares for lost or stray pets with medicine, food, and shelter until owners can be located through the information provided on the animal's microchip. The organization also takes in and scans animals brought in by law enforcement as well as other shelters and rescue programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Animal Rescue League of Boston has only been able to purchase one microchip scanner. With a high volume of intakes and multiple intake locations, animal rescuers frequently face delays in the provision of health and placement services as a result of the equipment shortage. Additional microchip scanners would allow the Animal Rescue League to facilitate more prompt medical and behavioral evaluations, reunions, and adoptions.

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.
