Common Dog

A caged kennel for Fifi? Quelle horreur! Now there’s a doggie bed and breakfast where she can lounge like she’s in her own living room. Common Dog, which opened last year, boards dogs overnight in a home-style setting, right down to sleeping on worn sofas and romping in a gravel backyard with wading pools. It also doubles as doggie day-care service, picking up canine campers in a small white bus so they can play while their owners are out earning their kibble.
