I'll never use DoggieDay again


There are some nice people at DoggieDay, but my last experience with them was so awful that I'll never use them again, and would never recommend them to anyone else. I tried and tried to update my feeding instructions via the DoggieDay Web page, but could never get it to work. So I rode my motorcycle all the way downtown to take written instructions for someone to input manually. Before my trip away I left another copy of the very detailed instructions (we had an elderly sick cat who was doing all right but who needed certain things because of her finickyness and her need to have a lot of calories to keep her strength up) on the kitchen counter, along with all sorts of different food, cat milk, treats, etc. And I emphasized VERY strongly that the cats liked and used one particular water bowl especially, especially the sick cat. That bowl was bone dry when I got home. I arrived home to find all but one water dish empty and barely any of the food used. None of the cat milk or treats had been used. The instruction sheet I left on the counter with the food had been set aside across the kitchen. It turns out that the caretaker had just gone from the woefully outdated feeding instructions from long before, from the outdated pre-printed instructions on their visit cards. I think that anyone concerned with doing any more than the absolute least possible would've seen that those old instructions didn't match up at all with the various kinds of foods I'd left out. I think the caretaker's excuse was a pitiful cop-out and I'm still mad about that whole situation, even a couple of years later. To me a company is only as good as its weakest employee, so I threw out the baby (DoggieDay) with the bathwater (the bad experience with the particular employee) in this case.

Very nice store/groomer


I attend the Chihuahua meetups they hold once a month in the play area. The store and grooming area is very clean and organized. The products are very nice and are high quality. The workers are educated and very helpful. The only downside would be that it's a little expensive.

Great service and a lot of space


Doggie Day has a huge space used also for meet-ups and birthday parties! Here are some pics of one of their meet up. http://sniffingboston.blogspot.com/
