About Max

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a young professional offering weekend dog or cat boarding in my Back Bay apartment for non-aggressive dogs or cats. I have 1 very friendly Dalmatian and an adult cat myself. Both are very good with other animals. I am very knowledgeable about animal biology and behavior, and have extensive experience dog-walking, pet-sitting, volunteering in animal shelters, and working as a parrot trainer at a major university. I can board dogs from Friday night-Sunday evening, and cats any day of the week. Your dog will have companionship from myself and my dog all weekend long, and I take long walks to the off-leash dog area in Boston Common every Saturday and Sunday. Your cat will also receive daily play and grooming time if requested. I am happy to accommodate any additional special requests (food, behavioral, medication, etc.). I also offer in-home pet care visits and training sessions.

I can board pets on short notice if I have room. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or if you would like to board your pet with me!

Max was very flexible about the schedule and Stella had so much much with Ollie!
We really appreciated all the pictures of Ruthie that Max sent us while we were away for Thanksgiving. Ruthie had a blast playing with Max's lovely Dalmatian, Ollie! As requested, he kept us updated on all the good (and bad) things that Ruthie did while we were away. As she's only 7 months old, the feedback was much appreciated. Thanks Max!
Max was very accommodating with the drop off/pick up times. My dog seemed to have a great time during her weekend stay, and Max took her for a lot of walks and was very patient (she was still not the best trained puppy at the time). I would definitely recommend.
Max saved us when our previous sitter canceled last minute. He picked Oliver up and Oliver seemed happy when he returned home. I would have liked more updates and pictures but Max saved us in a real bind.
I was very pleased with Jackson's stay with Max. Not only was my trip last minute, but weather threatened to impact my drop-off/pickup times; Max was very understanding and flexible throughout. Max proved extremely adept at managing the interactions of his Dalmatian and my dog to make Jackson feel welcome, comfortable, and to minimize the potential for tension between the two (and a third dog staying with him!). You can rest assured your dog will enjoy the company of Max and Ollie. He sent several rounds of picture updates, but all the proof we needed of a good time was the snoozing pup we had by the time we got home. Thanks Max!
Max was great with Gandalf, and his Dalmatian, Ollie, got on great with Gandalf. He fulfilled all of our requests, and sent us photos while we were away as wel . We would certainly use Max's devices again. Thanks, Max!
Max was a great host for Bell! He was able to meet me on very short notice and sent pictures of a tired pup throughout the weekend. It was stress-free for me knowing Bell was in good hands!
