Tucked away on 11 Country Acres just minutes from Main St, in historic Westminster Ma, The Rustic Dog is a home away from home for your family dog. Structured and supervised fun in the play yard, a cozy bed in front of the wood stove on a cold night, or successful behavior modification via our one of a kind obedience school alternative, we are a family owned business that understands what it feels like to have to leave your dog in someone else’s care. We know it’s hard to leave your dog alone with a stranger, and that is why we welcome your dog as part of our family.

We are Temporarily not taking any new applications at this time, please check here for updates!  (Please note, we are not able to take any new dogs even just for boarding… because we prioritize boarding slots for regular daycare customers, we really are not able to take “boarding-only” dogs at this time).   We promise to update this page if that changes!  (but keep in mind, all dogs must be, and remain, acclimated here to board anyways, we do not do one time boardings etc, you would have to go to a traditional kennel for that most likely)…  thank you so much for your interest in us!
