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.

They have always done an excellent job with our dog and cat. We use them for boardong and grooming.... We also go to the Veterinarian in the same building.read more

From the day I got Dani this was her home away from home and staff is her family. Unfortunately we... had moved out of the area. Today, three years later; I called to see if by some small chance they would be able to take her in while I was in my appointment. They said absolutely! They asked me just to provide her updated vaccinations. When I arrived, I called the main number and they immediately answered. I let them know I had arrived and shortly after the gentleman came out to retrieve her. She was excited to see him! They always treat us so great so I am not shocked but if you live in the area, they are the absolute spot to bring your pet!read more

After picking our dog up from daycare the person working mentioned a behavior that she could have... only noticed from paying close attention to our dog. Think about how important that is.We tried Toureen after we picked up our dog from Crate Escape and he seemed despondent and terrified. Crate Escape wouldnt let me see the facilities, and when I asked how he did on his first day, they seemed confused and clearly didnt know. The owner of Toureen was very nice, and gave me a little tour, explaining all the options for pets.You can pay extra during stays to give your dog personal 1 on 1 playtime or a leashed walk outside by the river. Thats worth gold to me. Its also attached to a pet hospital, so I know if something were to happen my dog would be in good hands.Bring your pets to Toureen. They care about them almost as much as you do.read more

This place is awesome. I called on a Sunday in desperate need of a bath/hair cut for my mini... goldendoodle, Daisy. Chris answered the phone and was super accommodating and friendly. The next morning I brought Daisy in for her appointment and the experience was great. Chris and the gal working at the reception desk were totally understanding of how I didn't want Daisy's hair cut too short, but enough to clean her up. They assured me they would call me if they felt they needed to take more off (due to possible matting). The end result was great! Daisy looked fabulous and she knew it too! She had the biggest smile on her face all day! I'm so glad to have discovered Toureen!read more

We kenneled our Greyhound here several times for short weekend stays all the way up to a week and... every time went well.They take caring for the dogs very seriously and they really make an effort to make sure they give your pet what they need. When we left our dog there and we called to check in we would always get someone who knew how he was doing, what other dogs he was playing with, if he was eating well, etc.I'd definitely recommend this place to other people in the area.read more

Great grooming service. As far as overnight boarding you should check reviews. I did see other... reviews on other platforms that stated they were negligent towards dogs that stayed there. I'm not sure how accurate those reviews were, but one review showed pictures of a dog that wasn't fed enough over a 2 week stay to the point that you could see the dog's ribcage due to lack of feeding. Their grooming services are terrific. We never had issues with grooming or boarding, but that review was upsetting when I saw it. I'm not sure how authentic or accurate it was, but look at reviews from many sources on Toureen before boarding here for a long stay. Personally I never had any issues with them.read more

We just recently boarded our German shepherd at toureen pet resort and absolutely loved the service... we received. Everyone was so nice and answered all of my questions without hesitation. I also love that the owners and employees own German Shepherds! When we picked our dog up he was so excited to see us and acted like his normal self which made me feel great as I am always nervous to leave my dog. It is so reassuring to know your dog is not stuck in a kennel all day and has the option to play in daycare all day, go for a river walk and get extra play time. We will definitely use this facility as our go to for boarding!!read more

We just got a scottish terrier puppy and were super nervous about taking him to get groomed for the... first time, since it can be traumatizing. They did such a great job! and he was so happy when they brought him out! My boyfriend was actually the one who picked him up, but he told me that the owner wanted to come out to meet him and he payed extra close attention to our dog, Mac since scotties are so rare and i guess his grandfather used to have them. Was really comforting to know that they went out of their way for us. Also made us feel really comfortable bringing him there knowing that they actually know the dog instead of him just being another grooming sale. They could tell too how nervous I was to drop him off. He's our first baby so I'm super careful with everything.... So awesome. Customer service was great and his first scottie cut was literally PERFECT. They didn't give him the typical show dog scottie skirt.... Hate that on dogs.... he was so flippin cute when he got home and so happy. LOVE TAUREEN!! You guys are awesome!!!read more

I had a dilemma during my recent move: I couldn't move into my new place until the 1st (stupid... renting laws) and didn't have a place for my cat to stay overnight until I could move in. The Petsmart Hotel at Fresh Pond Mall I had heard about was all full up for Labor Day weekend. Toureen Pet Resort and Spa to the rescue!For $24, I boarded my baby with the caring staff, who made sure he was fed, his litter box was clean, and he got playtime in the indoor "cat gym". Peace of mind during a very stressful time, and for so inexpensive? So good!They also have a great selection of cat & dog toys. For $7 I picked up a new cardboard scratching tray for my boy. I would certainly come back here, even though it's a little out of the way for me.read more

My dog is so happy coming to Toureen Pet Resort and Spa!

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

Photo of cat boarding customer and employee.

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.

  • Half Day: $28.00

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.  Since our facility is well-situated along a major Boston river, we also offer a dog walking service along the Riverwalk as weather permits.

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.
