The Toureen Pet Daycare and Boarding Staff Members

Toureen Pet Resort and Day Spa is the best and most trusted name in doggy daycare and pet boarding in the Greater Boston area.  Dog and cat owners in Watertown, Newton, Belmont, Wellesley and other towns throughout Middlesex and Suffolk counties rely on our experienced, devoted caregivers for peace of mind that their pets are safe and happy when they’re with us for daycare, grooming, and short-term or long-term boarding.

Family-owned for three generations, our custom-designed kennel, daycare and grooming facility has grown to serve hundreds of repeat clients because we’re as devoted to your pet’s wellbeing as you are.  Each of our professional team members has personal, firsthand experience with pets, and attends to your pet’s physical and social needs with skill, interest, and heartfelt compassion.

Our passion for pets is three-fold, combining our deep knowledge of the art and science of animal care; our vast experience with making pets feel at home; and our unwavering respect for the needs of each dog and cat we serve.  Much more than a traditional dog boarding kennel, we are a full service pet resort that comprehensively cares for your animal to ensure his or her safety, wellbeing, and comfort.

Our puppy loves it there! The staff are wonderful, helpful, and efficient.

We bring our dog Churro to Toureen once a week for daycare and at least one weekend a month for... boarding. She absolutely loves Toureen and we always feel so comfortable leaving her there. I can tell the staff loves her like I do! She never wants to leave when we pick her up. So glad we found such a wonderful place to care for our pup when we can’t!read more

Top notch daycare and boarding. High standards of cleanliness, safety, as well as love and... affection towards the dogs. Staff have been there long term and develop close relationships with the dogs. Teddy (our 3yo goldendoodle) loves everyone there, enjoys his dog friends, and typically boards in suites which are spacious, clean and nice. Boarding combined with daycare makes Toureen a second home for Teddy. We are VERY grateful since we feel our dog is safe and happy!read more

We take our 4 yr old black lab to Toureen regularly for boarding (5-8 times a year). The staff are... extremely kind, helpful and care for our dog as if she was their own. Toureen is not cheap, however quality service and surety are well worth the peace of mind. We also use Toureen’s grooming services. There’s nothing better than picking up our happy (and clean) pup at the end of a trip. The butt waggles alone are worth every pennyread more

We have been dropping our 15 month old border collie and australian shepherd mix at Toureen for Day... care ever since he was 6 months old. He loves it there and always comes home happy and tired!! We really like the facility. It's clean and the staff is always friendly and attentive. It tends to get busy at pick up and drop off times so if you need time to chat with the staff then pick any other time during the day. They have an outdoor play area where they split the dogs into 2 groups - large dogs and small & medium dogs - which is great. They also have an indoor play area for when it rains. They're great with posting on Instagram so one can see what their puppers are up to. They are also kind and responsive through email or phone calls for specific updates. Highly recommend for Doggy Day Care!read more

I can't say enough positive things about Toureen. Our dog loved going here for play days and... overnight stays. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot he would perk up and was ready to get out of the car! The staff is incredible; they knew our dog by name and he obviously loved spending time with them. Additionally, our dog unfortunately had a medical emergency (due to an underlying health condition) while staying over night and the staff handled the situation perfectly. They got him immediate care and contacted us while we were out of town to make us aware. They even called a few days after just to check in on how he was doing. The best grooming, play, and boarding facility we've experienced yet.read more

I boarded my dachshund here when our usual kennel was booked up for the holiday weekend. I was a... little nervous sending him somewhere new as he suffers from separation anxiety and we've had bad experiences with other boarding facilities. My fears immediately subsided when I dropped him off, the staff was so friendly and my pup went right with them without any complaint. When I picked him up he was his usual happy self, the staff member who brought him out was so gentle and kind, I know my pup had a great experience at Toureen!read more

Our first doggy daycare customer of the day!

Our team takes great care to ensure quality puppy daycare experiences. We group puppies (dogs under six months old) together, since their developing brains are very different from those of adult dogs.  Very young dogs benefit from being with other puppies, because they interact differently than adult dogs.  Young puppy brains are quickly imprinted with social cues, so this intentional separation from adult dogs ensures that each puppy gains healthy social interaction with other like-minded puppies.

To ensure positive play experiences and adequate exercise for all of our guests, adult dogs are grouped in classes of 15 to 20, based on their size, age, and disposition.  For inside playtime, our non-porous flooring and furniture supports fun, safe and healthy exploration.  For outside playtime, our well-maintained and sanitary artificial turf protects your puppy or adult dog’s health and safety.

Overnight and Long Term Dog and Cat Boarding

We love boarding with Toureen!

When vacation or travel plans arise, many families entrust their dogs or cats to our modern pet boarding facility for boarding overnight, or for long-term boarding.  In fact, they often enjoy their initial experiences so much that they become regular clients, and take advantage of supervised daycare and grooming services as well.  The environment in our boarding facility is exceptional, from the bedding in each spacious, well-ventilated, climate-controlled resting pen, to the clear-backing in some of our comfortable cat condos that abut windows, to the nutritious food and frequently-refreshed water we serve.

Daycare and Boarding Costs for Dogs and Cats

Responsible pet owners know that doggy daycare services and dog or cat boarding are not a “cost”; rather, they are a wise investment in a beloved pet’s health, happiness, and security.  Our comprehensive care represents tremendous overall value at a fair and reasonable price – and most importantly, it provides pet owners with priceless confidence that their furry family members are safe, happy, and loved.

High Level of Care and Attentive Staff

From our boarding facility to our full-service pet spa, our professional and caring staff delights in attending to your loved one’s every need.  Here in Watertown, we are fortunate that our custom-designed facility is in the same building as the Massachusetts Animal Medical Center. This gives our clients great peace of mind should any unforeseen medical issues arise.  We also have a longstanding affiliation with Blue Pearl, an emergency veterinarian service in nearby Waltham, to whom we refer dogs and cats with more acute or extensive medical needs.

Grooming Services for Dogs and Cats

Our full-service spa and grooming services are popular with owners – and their pets – because we understand and support the unique needs of a wide variety of dog and cat breeds.  From larger-size dog breeds such as German Shepherds, Boxers, and Great Danes, to smaller-size breeds such as Scottish Terriers, Airedales, French Bulldogs, and Bichons Frises, our dog groomers offer breed-specific care and spa services. Our cat grooming options support the needs of long-hair breeds ranging from Persians to Ragdolls to Birmans, and short-hair breed types ranging from Abyssinian to Bombay to Siamese.

Dog Walking Services

An increasingly-popular alternative to traditional in-home dog walking services, Toureen Pet Resort and Spa provides your dog the opportunity to come stay and play with a group of dogs in safe, supervised indoor and outdoor environments. Our play spaces are specifically designed and meticulously maintained to enhance each animal’s physical and mental wellbeing.

Centrally located in Watertown, Ma, Toureen Pet Resort & Spa serves Boston, Newton, Belmont and surrounding communities.

Boarding and Daycare Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to visit and tour the facility?

You’re welcome to visit anytime we’re open (M-F from 8-6; Sat 8-5; Sun 10-5). However, in order to avoid waiting for us to finish serving our clients during busy drop-off and pick-up times, we recommend avoiding the first or last two hours of the day.  The mid-morning to mid-afternoon timing will also provide you with the best sense of what our supervised daycare and boarding areas are like when most of our guests are here.

Do I need to make a reservation, or call ahead, before bringing my dog or cat for daycare?

We only require a reservation for your pet’s first day with us, when we will orient and assess them to ensure the best possible experience for them – and you!  Otherwise, returning clients do not need to make a reservation.

Do I need to bring food for my dog or cat?

The food we serve is Science Diet – Sensitive Stomach brand, but you are welcome to provide any meals or treats that your dog or cat prefers, or requires due to allergies.  For any food you provide, we would appreciate it in labeled zip-top bags (pre-measured is preferable, but not required).

Can my dog play outside?

Yes! We maintain a large, safe, and sanitary outside space for dogs to explore and enjoy the freedom and fun of playing and socializing with new and old friends. Our caring, energetic supervisory staff thoughtfully separates groups of dogs by age, size and personality, and works to ensure that each guest enjoys a balanced, healthy day.
