John Edwards founded The Well Fed Dog several years ago after falling in love with a raggedy lab mix named Sasha. When John and his wife adopted Sasha, she was 6 months old, underweight, underfed, and riddled with fleabites, but the family was determined to nurse the small pup back to health. During the process, John discovered Sasha had a chicken allergy, and so he had to carefully read the labels on the dog food they were buying her. What he discovered disgusted him—many foods were composed of animal byproducts, synthetic vitamins, and other ingredients unfit to feed a cherished member of the family, no matter their species. And so John began to craft his own recipes for dog food, using careful research and advice from veterinarians, fellow pet owners, and even professional chefs.

Featured in the Boston Globe and national Natural Dog magazine, The Well Fed Dog and its recipes include real meats, such as lamb, salmon, and beef, and vegetables including sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, and celery, and the products can now be found in many stores. All of the handpicked ingredients are also human grade, perishable, and packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. The food is slow-cooked then frozen before being divided into small batches to help with quality control and is packed into cooler bags for safe keeping. To keep pets happy between meals, The Well Fed Dog also sells special treats that dogs love, such as deer and moose antlers, smoked-beef marrowbones, and pictures of cats wearing humiliating hats.

Crate Escape owes its existence to a 10-year-old jack russell terrier named Ernestine Hastings. Ernestine's owners, Bradley and Stephanie, loved their pooch so much that they decided to spread this affection to other dogs by opening a spacious boarding and grooming facility. Pet owners can drop off their furry friends for daycare or overnight boarding services, letting pups gambol about in a 17,000-square-foot play space. Groomers tackle matted fur and tails caked in cake by scrubbing coats with hypoallergenic shampoo.

Fenway Bark Stay. Play. Heal. pampers pets in a responsibly led facility where a trained staff at an attentive 1:15 ratio keeps canines happy, healthy, and safe, earning it a spot on Fido Friendly's Best of 2011 dog-destination list. For overnight stays, dogs check in to a variety of roomy lodgings that swaddle fur with fresh options, entertain eyes with cable TV and sprawling views of the play yard and bone-shaped pool, and ease owners' minds with Skype webcam access. Paws scamper indoors over antimicrobial grass, frolicking with those of peers who have been vetted by the staff for exemplary social behavior, exhibited by friendly interaction and promptly sent thank-you cards.

Fenway Bark's onsite boutique outfits pups with gourmet treats, fashionable accessories, and toys such as naturally shed antlers, and trained veterinary technicians heal fidos suffering from hip dysplasia, obesity, and other ailments. Regular K9 Klatch social events congregate doggie parents and their barking broods for caffeine-fueled conversations about the best way to teach a dog to sit, drive, or properly use a french press.

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.

Boston Phoenix and Boston Magazine both agree that the off-leash adventures led by Doggie Daytrippers are an upgrade from leaving pups at home. The rationale behind the unique form of doggy daycare? A tired dog is a happy dog. Tiring activities look a bit different for each dog, which is why doggy field trips involve swimming and snowshoeing at local parks and beaches, whereas daycare includes hours of open play at each pooch's pace. Dogs can also pal around with new friends if owners sign them up for a city hike, which means two hours at a nearby dog park, including pickup and drop off at home.
