Pet Companions

The dog lovers at Somerville’s Pet Companions never call what they do kenneling, a term which implies confinement. Those in the know refer to Pat Companions as the Ritz for dogs. When dogs spend the night at a “Doggie Pajama Party,” as proprietor Judy Basteri calls it, pooch gets to sleep on a dog bed or couch, is provided with chewies and toys, and roams with his buds in a professionally designed playspace. canine Mahler fans take heart—doggies also listen to classical music while bunking down. Pet Companions offers dog walking, organized doggie play groups, and day care.
