We take pride in offering a truly unique daycare program in the Boston area. Our pet guests enjoy a fun, friendly and safe environment every day. This program allows your dog to socialize and exercise all under the supervision of our highly trained staff. Pet guests enjoy separate play areas, with activities directed by our Pet Care Specialists. Dogs are selected to daycare groups based on their size, temperament and play style to ensure the best experience for all our pet guests. We are an indoor and outdoor doggie daycare. Our daycare dogs have access to our enclosed outdoor spaces all year round.
Daycare fills up quickly, so please contact us for availability and to schedule an evaluation.
*Every dog in daycare is required to have identification on their collar (either an engraved tag or embroidered collar) within one week of attending daycare. Tags can be made at Red Dog for a discounted price using the coupon received at the end of your daycare evaluation.
Early Drop-Offs for daycare will incur a fee of $5 per 30 minutes prior to opening with no drop-offs any earlier than 5:30am. All early drop-offs must be scheduled and paid for ahead of time:
- 5:30-6am – $10
- 6-6:30am – $5
*50% off for each additional dog in a family.
The last drop off is 3 PM.
Scheduled Late Pick-ups:
We always understand that pet parents cannot always pick up their pups within our open lobby hours, this is why we offer our late pick-up option. We ask that you always schedule and pay for your late pick-up from daycare and overnight stays one hour before closing. The charge for a late departure is $25 per hour up until 12am. After that the charge for an overnight stay in one of our Traditional accommodations, along with house food (if needed) will be applied.
Unscheduled Late Pick-ups:
Not knowing when a pet parent is going to arrive to pick up their dog is difficult for us, as we do not know if we should be feeding your pup dinner or if we should be setting him/her up for the night in one of our overnight accommodations.
If you are unable to make it to Red Dog by our lobby closing time and do not notify us prior to closing and were scheduled to pick up your pup from either Doggie Daycare or an Overnight Stay, you will incur a charge of $25 per every 15 minutes until 10pm. After that the charge for an overnight stay in one of our Traditional accommodations, along with house food (if needed) will be applied.
Here at Red Dog, we aim to provide a loving and caring environment for all of our guests. When looking to bring a new member into our pack, we take the necessary precautions through our required daycare evaluation process to ensure a safe and inviting environment for all dogs joining us for the first time. As a step in our evaluation process, a member of the Red Dog team will review a detailed questionnaire with the pet parent(s). This questionnaire aims to help provide us with the most accurate and up to date information regarding their dog’s behaviors. Some of our clients may be newer pet parents having their adopted dogs only a short time before the evaluation day. In order to accurately provide the necessary information for a daycare evaluation and to make sure a dog has had adequate time to adjust to his/her new routine, we require that all dogs, no matter what age, have lived with their new forever family for a minimum of two weeks before participating in Red Dog’s daycare evaluation.

We are excited to offer a “date night” option on Fridays to our pet parents who has a pup in Daycare or Day Stay. This option allows you to go out for the evening, grab dinner or see a movie without having to worry about picking your dog up at our regular lobby closing time. Your pet can continue their stay with us from 7 – 10pm and you can enjoy your evening stress free!
Prefer to drop your dog off for Date Night after 2pm? Your pup can enjoy a peaceful evening in one of our comfy accommodations while you are out on the town! Drop-Off between 2-7pm and pickup any time before 10pm.
