I take my puggle Kingsley to Paws in Chelsea nearly every day. My girlfriend and I work pretty hectic work schedules so we knew that finding a doggy daycare was of the utmost importance for all of us. After doing our research online and visiting a number of other daycares in our neighborhood, we weren’t completely sold on any of those places. Some were too boutique-y and waaay overpriced; some were just too dingy and smelled awful; some had very inattentive staff; and most alarmingly, my dog was just petrified being in most (if not all) of those places. Luckily we were able to find Paws, and when we came to visit for the very first time to check it out, Mike was more than happy to show us around and we both fell in love with the place immediately. Now, our Monday mornings are basically a sprint to see how fast he can get there, but unfortunately, that means I have to drag him home because he loves it there so much (true story, I had to carry him out of there after his first day there because he did not want to leave!!!).
When we have to travel, we don’t even think twice about boarding him there overnight. They don’t leave him in a cage which is a major plus because he hates being in a kennel. While we certainly miss him when we’re away, much of our fears are calmed by the fact that the staff is so attentive to his (and the other dogs’) needs.
I can’t say enough great things about this Sherri and her staff there. When I have to pick up Kingsley, I always get a rundown of his day from whoever’s at the front desk. They go above and beyond to make sure my guy is happy without any second thought, which in turns, makes me happy. It’s those little things that make the biggest difference and shows us that Kingsley loves the people there as much as they love him.
