From yappy hours to canine concierges, Boston dogs are living the high life.
Premium apparel, soothing massages, luxury hotels... With Boston’s newest services aimed to create the ultimate dog’s life, the four-footed never had it so good.
Man’s best friend deserves more, and more is what Boston’s poshest pooches can expect this spring thanks to a bevy of new dogs-only luxury services. Nature walks (with selfies texted to owners), furry massages, social “yappy” hours: Who let the dogs out?
Your city hound can be the talk of the town with Baroo’s Yappy Hour, which features yummy treats and drinks for dogs and their masters. If your pup doesn’t (yet) look the part, start with a primping in the mobile grooming van. 617-449-7383
