done, done and DONE! Crate Escape too can’t wait to see YOU!

Crate Escape too
We didn’t either! …..think the construction details (delays) would come together so we could move back in to our special daycare/ store. But they did. We reopened officially as Crate Escape too last Monday, August 22nd. Jenny and Carly worked their tails off to make the store beautiful and efficient for their customers. And a huge thanks to Construction Manager, Woman of Many Titles, Nikki, who oversaw the development of ‘Crate Escape too. If you haven’t been in, you should really stop by. Our dogs must have cut their summers short, because it seems like everyone we missed all summer has been back to daycare to play in their new space. (kind of like, back to school early) Lots of new pups enrolling too. And we must say again, thank you to our wonderful customers for being so flexible during the renovation.

Crate Escape
Happy and Sad. Some of our favorite dog handlers went, or are going soon, back to school. Thanks to them for a great summer! Nikki and Stephanie are on their forever hunt tracking down fabulous, new dog foods, toys, leashes, collars and supplements to give you options to increase your dogs health and happiness (o.k. and beauty/ handsomeness). We are excited about the fall, as we continue our quest; striving to give the best care to your dogs, and you of course!

No More Homeless Pets
You have probably heard the ‘cry’ initiated at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, one of the largest no-kill shelters in the U.S. (for more details you can check out their website We have always been big supporters of adopting dogs from shelters and rescues. We have unofficially partnered with a few shelters who will let us know about dogs available for adoption, so we can put the word out to our customers. If you, or your acquaintances have an interest in either of the pups below, give us a call. Thanks.

Short & Sweet

Ty is a 4-5 year old Jack Russell. He is very sweet and is good with dogs. people and children. We were notified that he is available for adoption through a connection Stephanie has with the shelter. We just learned that he was a stray. After being rescued, he was in a crate in the office of the shelter in Manchester NH for 5 weeks, because they were full. He has a great temperament, is house trained and responds to basic commands. He is currently spending time with a foster family. If you have any interest in adopting him, or know anyone who wants a cute, playful, 10lb jack russell, call us at (617)489-9003. In the meantime, we will keep the updates coming.

Another cute, adoptable, male terrier named Will. Crate will be serving as a liasion towards his adoption. He is under 2 years old and was surrendered to the shelter as a stray. He is neutered and the shelter personnel say he is a ‘typical terrier boy’, friendly and playful. Like Ty (above) he is currently in a crate all day in the office of the rescue in Manchester, NH. If anyone is interested, you can email me at and I will let you know the scoop. Please spread the word!
