About Us

The Dogfather is dedicated to providing full-service, down-to-earth pet care for Boston's North End, North Station, Charlestown, West End, and Back Bay neighborhoods. Our services extend far beyond dog-walking to provide your furry friend with the routine that fits his or her needs. You name it, we can do it- playgroups, overnight care, professional grooming,training, and more.


Life can be hectic, let us help you have one less thing to worry about. 

Life comes at you fast, and we know that when it does, finding a trusted setting for your dog to go to can add on even more unnecessary stress. At The Dogfather, we are dedicated to eliminating the hassle that often comes with finding care for your pet.  Our goal is to create a stress free-environment for our clients, so The Dogfather is constantly adapting to the changing needs of you and your pup  so you never have to miss a beat.

We utilize PetCheck, a pet care management software, that allows for heightened visibility and peace of mind. Confirm your appointments and see where your furry four-legged friend is going with GPS Tracking.

We take enormous pride in our individualized commitment to each and every animal in our care and cannot wait to welcome you into our family.

I can’t say enough about how wonderful Karen and her team are. We contacted her about our 8 week old puppy very last minute (literally the day before) we needed care for our puppy. She was extremely accommodating with our very challenging work schedules and the late notice - and now takes care of our puppy Ranger every day! I don’t think we could have met a more caring, thoughtful or trustworthy partner to us in our care for Ranger!

We love that the DogFather provides a full service solution: once he’s old enough he can go to puppy day care with them, they can walk him up to 3 times a day and are flexible when our schedule changes last minute, and they can take him overnight. Plus, the care is great - I love the consistency and that it is the same person every time who knows our puppy and his unique needs. We even feel like we can call Karen for advice on anything with the pup!

I cannot recommend them enough!!
