5 Weeks until Thanksgiving!

It is 5 weeks until Thanksgiving and if you need boarding reservations for your pup, we suggest you make them soon.  A couple of our boarding options are almost sold out already.

Call our concierge at 617-464-4364 to make your reservation or email the concierge with the details of your reservation if you have a credit card on file.

Winter is around the corner. . .

Winter is around the corner so you are probably cleaning up leaves, putting in storm windows, checking out the new boots at Nordstroms, and putting a fresh antifreeze in your car.  All those are great steps to keeping YOU safe and comfortable as winter approaches but what about your buddy?

Yes, you need to winterize your pets, too! 

Fenway Bark is offering its clients a winter care package to keep their paws healthy during a cold New England winter.  Dog are subject to snow and ice getting packed in their paws, cracking of their delicate paw pads, and street/sidewalk salt being caught in their paws where they are likely to lick it out if not wiped off after a winter stroll.

For $150 for the winter, Fenway Bark will maintain your pet's paws weekly, keeping the nails trimmed, fur trimmed between the pads, cleaned of any harsh elements and moisturized to keep the pads healthy.

If you would like to sign up for the service, please ask the concierge to sign your dog up for a Pawdicure package!  Or email the concierge to sign up your dog and request we charge the service to your card on file.

Training Classes Start Next Week! The Time to Enroll is Now Before They Close!

Fenway Bark has a rich Fall curriculum to train your dog on some of the tough problem areas many families deal with - walking on leash, recall, and basic manners.  If your dog needs some, well, polish, on his/her training, enroll in one of our 3 - 4 week courses and join the fun!

Join one of our complimentary orientation courses on training methodology before attending one of the clinics to make the most of your experience!

Holiday Boarding - Plan Early

Thanksgiving is only a little less than 7 weeks away and well planned puppy parents are already getting their Thanksgiving and Christmas boarding reservations at Fenway Bark in place for the holidays.  If you haven't made your reservations, we encourage you to do so while all room size options are available to you.

Giving Back

Giving back to the community is very important to the Fenway Bark team.  To that end, we are fostering adoptable dogs on most days and providing them with the socialization and affection they need before going to their forever homes.

To date, Fenway Bark has placed dozens of rescue dogs, almost 50 in one year, if you consider the dogs adopted last weekend at the Last Hope K9 adoption event.

It is our pleasure to give back and hope that you will join us in helping to save dogs, one at a time. 

If you can't foster or adopt, please consider donating good condition leashes, collars, and other supplies to the rescues who give so much to helping the dogs find new homes.

See below for some of the adoptable dogs at Fenway Bark this week.
