The Mindful Mutt, a new dog daycare and boarding facility is opening on Harvard Avenue in Allston Village this Fall 2021.


Founded in 2018 and serving hundreds of happy clients, The Mindful Mutt is expanding to its first brick-and-mortar location in the heart of Allston. They will offer structure-based dog daycare, kennel-free boarding, and enrichment classes, with grooming services added in the near future.


Structured daycare and kennel-free boarding are what set The Mindful Mutt apart from the pack. Founder and fellow dog parent, Deanna Anderson, believes that a truly happy dog benefits from a combination of physical, mental, social, and emotional care, with reliable leadership, consistent routines and boundaries to flourish. Dogs participating in the daycare and boarding programs enjoy enrichment activities and learn new skills throughout the day. The Mindful Mutt enriches your dog's daily routine, reinforces positive behaviors, and can even teach an old dog some new tricks.


The Mindful Mutt is a woman- and minority-owned business.
