6 Pet Finds to Drool Over

Dig up the city's best


Your furry compadre has proven a bottomless source of comfort this past week. Return the love with these new finds for the four-legged set.

Ph.D. in Cuteness
Mentored by Cesar Millan in Los Angeles, Nick Miller brings his tutelage gifts to The Urban Hound University (opening today). Find everything from puppy obedience to advanced off-leash training tailored to your McGruff’s particular demeanor.

Multitask with Mutthead
Guilt riddled about shuttering Bowwow while you head out for Chore Saturday? Just-opened Beantown Bed & Biscuit will entertain your wagging charge while you run errands (or see a movie at nearby Coolidge Corner Theatre).


One-Stop Care Shop
K9 Strolls’s Daniel Avila and Jim Batty recently took their walking biz brick-and-mortar: The South End storefront entices with locally made dog biscuits, intra-breed meet-ups (picture ten dachshunds pretzeled together), and on-site grooming.

Have Fur, Will Travel
Ivanka Hump is a vain little bitch who also hates the car. Colleen Finnegan of The Ride & Groom brings high styling to the furry masses with her tricked-out mobile grooming truck.

Oh, Those Tense Ears
If those shredded tissues are any indication, Barker Posey’s been extra fraught lately. Julie Polvinen of Zen Animal Massage comes to your home to give the pup a stress- and ache-reducing rubdown. She’ll also treat cats, rabbits, emus(!) — any animal less than 200 pounds.

Run, Fido, Run
When daily walks aren’t enough, Boston Dog Company grabs the reins and takes your ever-energetic hound for a multimile run around the Cambridge or Acton areas.
