Maybe it'll be cheaper to take her on the plane after all

Can you recommend a dog boarding service/overnight walker/kennel in the Boston area, preferably T-accessible but otherwise not a long drive from the North Shore?

My vet has a kennel, but it's an extremely basic crated-all-day setup. There's a spacious place I know nearby, but I hear that some dogs got kennel cough there.

Let me know if you have any tips.

We've taken our dogs to Pet Companions for daycare, but they also have cageless boarding. They are in Reading, which has the commuter rail go through, and not far from the north shore.

You might want to check on the kennel cough rumor. Every boarding facility we've ever used requires a current kennel cough vaccination to leave the dog there. Not that it couldn't happen, but I don't think that automatically marks the place as bad.

If you are up on the North Shore, we use Four Seasons Pet Resort which is in Peabody by the North Shore Mall. The name sounds crazy expensive I know, but they are fairly comparable to the other kennels and they take your dog out every 2 hours for 15 min of walking/playing/peeing, plus there is a 1 hour play group everyday. Our dog is super anxious and he's always been well cared for there.
