The Belmont location offers grooming Monday-Friday by Daniela.  A seasoned, sweet, loving, professional groomer who has been with us for 10 years.  Please call Belmont to make an appointment.  Services offered full grooms, baths, nails, anal gland expressions, teeth and ear cleaning.


The Charlestown location offers baths and nail trims on Tuesdays and Fridays by our very own Ryann.  Please call Charlestown to schedule.


The Cambridge locations offers walk-in nail trims.


You do not have to be a daycare client to utilize our grooming services. Prices vary based on the dog.



All dogs must have completed 3 vaccinations before they come to daycare; rabies, distemper and bordetella. We need a copy of your current vaccinations for your dog’s file. Dogs over 8 months old must be spayed or neutered. Your dog must be healthy and free of parasites. We ask that you apply topical flea and tick solutions during the weekend.  If your dog becomes sick with any contagious virus you must have your vet write a letter of good health to regain admittance to daycare.


Before starting daycare, we do temperament evaluations with all new dogs to make sure they are friendly with people and dogs. We ask that you schedule an appointment before coming in. Appointments are scheduled on the hour and half hour. They usually take 20 – 30 minutes. During this time we introduce your dog slowly to other dogs who are in daycare. If your dog looks like a happy and healthy fit, you are good to go with daycare. We ask for 24 hour notice for daycare reservations. Generally we can accept walk-ins, but if we are at capacity we will have to say no for that day. Please call your local Crate Escape to schedule your temperament evaluation.
