Dewberry Dogs & Cats Too
357 W. Broadway
Boston, MA 01217
One of the best things about Dewberry Dogs & Cats Too is right in the name. Having a place to bring both dogs and cats for grooming treatments makes life a lot easier for multi-pet owners. Sure, this is no full-service spa, but Dewberry has a caring atmosphere and provides all of the basic services both dogs and cats need. Extras include deshedding, flea baths, nail trimming and teeth brushing. The prices are as low as any pet owner will find in the area, so that helps put this establishment at the top.
1721 Washington St.
Boston, MA 02118
There are so many reasons to love Bark Place that it is impossible to list them all. The best reason is that pet owners can actually do the bathing themselves and use all professional tools and products to get the job done. This means a calmer pet and extra bonding time for both pet and owner. For those who do not have the time or prefer a professional to take care of their friends, there are grooming services as well. These include bathing, haircutting, ear cleaning and nail trimming. Extras include dematting and spa treatments for spoiled pooches.
The Continental Bed, Bath And Bone
1729 Centre St.
West Roxbury, MA 02132
Bed, Bath and Bone is a hotel for pets. It provides overnight services, day care and pet essentials so pet parents can get all of their needs in one place when on the go. As for grooming, expect a full-service treatment from bathing to nail clipping. This groomer also does deskunking, which is always a plus. One downside is that The Continental Bed, Bath and Bone does not have set prices for services, so there is no telling what the cost may be to bathe a pooch until it is on site. For small dog owners, this can work out well, but Saint Bernard owners may prefer a set rate.

Broadway Dog Spa
547 E. Broadway
Boston, MA 02127
While Broadway Dog Spa is all about dogs, it has the upside of focusing all of its attention on one type of pet. Dogs with special needs are manageable thanks to the owner’s years of handling dogs for grooming purposes. People with older and handicapped dogs may prefer to take their animals to an expressly aware and experienced groomer like Broadway. A typical treatment at this establishment includes bathing, brushing, haircut, nail trimming, ear cleaning and anal gland expression at the owner’s request.
