About Kassia

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Update January 2017: Pup ‘N Pals is looking to expand its daycare program and is only accepting new daycare clients 25 lbs and up (overnight dog boarding no longer offered) and repeat daycare guests at this time. We are still booking new small animal boarding guests. Thank you!*
Looking for a fun and safe place for your dog to spend the day while you are away? Look no further! Here at Pup ‘N Pals, we specialize in doggy daycare and strive to make each dog’s daycare experience as fulfilling and enriching as possible. Whether it is for a few hours while you run errands or for the whole day while you are at work, Pup ‘N Pals offers the perfect solution to leaving your pup at home where they can easily become bored, lonely or even destructive. At the end of the day, you go home with a tired and calm pup and your dog goes home happy and ready to relax. It is a win-win for both! After all, does it get any better for your best friend than hanging out with his or her pals all day, playing in a large, fenced-in yard and snoozing away on comfy beds and couches? If interested in booking, please scroll down to review our policies to make sure your pet is a good fit.
A typical day for our four-legged friends at Pup ‘N Pals is sure to keep them active. Drop-offs begin at 8:00 AM and continue until 10:00 AM (exceptions for half-day and playgroup clients), Monday through Friday. During this time, the dogs are introduced to each other and given the chance to settle in before play time. Once drop-offs and introductions have concluded, the dogs will begin their morning play session out in the yard where they can run, play with toys or socialize with other dogs. From there, the day follows a fairly structured schedule including periods of outdoor/indoor playtime and periods of rest. We always provide ample potty-break opportunities since we do spend a lot of time outside but we also allow dogs plenty of time to rest so they do not become overstimulated. For this reason, we ask that you do not schedule a pick-up/drop-off between the hours of 12:00 PM-2:00 PM since this is the time when many dogs will be fed lunch and resting, and pick-ups/drop-offs cause much excitement among the group. Pick-ups can begin at 2:00 PM and all dogs must be picked up by 6:00 PM or an additional $5 fee/per dog will be applied. Check out the daycare plans below to see which one works best for you and your pup!

1.) Full-Day Daycare (5 or more hours): $25.00/Dog-Perfect for those long work days!
Drop-offs can occur anywhere between 8:00 AM-10:00 AM and pick-ups are between 4:00 PM -6:00 PM.
2.) Half-Day Daycare (3-4 hours): $18.00/Dog-Great for when you need to run errands, keep appointments, etc…
Morning Session: Drop-offs can occur between 8:00 AM-9:00 AM and pick-ups between 11:00 AM-12:00 PM.
Afternoon Session: Drop-offs can occur between 2:00 PM-3:00 PM and pick-ups are between 5:00 PM-6:00 PM.
3.) Playgroup (1-2 hours): $15.00/Dog-Wonderful opportunity for pups (especially young ones) to burn off some energy while socializing with other dogs
Contact for Scheduling!

As daycare guests at Pup 'N Pals, you can be sure that your dog is receiving the utmost care and attention as I am an experienced pet owner myself, currently caring for three rabbits and a horse of my own. I have owned rabbits and other pets for the past twelve years and have been passionate about animals of all types for as long as I can remember. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire and have worked and volunteered at many places, allowing me the opportunity to not only care for small animals, but also dogs, cats and farm animals. I am a former volunteer of the MSPCA Nevins Farm and the Greater Derry Humane Society where I worked with dogs, cats, horses, goats and chickens and I have worked as an assistant barn manager at a local barn where I helped care for boarded horses. I currently am a member of both the International Boarding and Pet Services Association and the Dog Gurus Community, two associations that focus on safe and fun off-leash play for dogs. I also worked as a pet sitter for A Pet’s Life for eight years and so am accustomed to caring for animals while owners are away.

We do offer small animal boarding as well (the little ones are kept completely separate from the dogs), so feel free to contact me for more information and rates. I hope you choose Pup ‘N Pals for your next pet care need and I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

*We are on Facebook! Check us out at facebook.com/pupnpals.


1.) For all new daycare guests, a Meet 'N Greet must be arranged prior to booking.

2.) For all new daycare guests, a trial must be scheduled before booking ongoing daycare.

3.) All dogs must be current on a flea & tick preventative.

4.) Written proof of a negative fecal test within the past 6 months is required before booking.

5.) All dogs must be current on the following vaccines: Rabies, Bordetella (Kennel Cough) and DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Lepto, Parainfluenza and Parvo). A copy of your dog's vaccination records are required at the time of the Meet 'N Greet.

6.) All dogs must be friendly with other dogs and show no signs of aggression towards people. Dogs who exhibit resource guarding behaviors towards toys, food, people or other dogs cannot participate in daycare.

7.) All dogs must be spayed/neutered unless they are under 9 months of age.

8.) Puppies must be 3 months old before enrolling for daycare.

9.) Please refer to the daycare plans outlined above for specific daycare hours. The earliest allowed daycare drop-off is 8:00 AM and the latest allowed daycare pick-up is 6:00 PM Monday-Friday, regardless of the daycare plan selected. If your dog must be picked up after 6:00 PM due to unforeseen circumstances, a $5 fee/dog will be applied to the daycare payment. Pick-ups/Drop-offs will not be scheduled from 12:00 PM-2:00 PM Monday-Friday as this allows time for the dogs to rest and eat lunch uninterrupted. Occasional daycare and playgroups are offered on weekends on a limited basis.

10.) Dogs should be provided with a harness and a fixed leash, in addition to their collar and identification tags. No retractable leashes please!

Thank you!

Callie enjoyed her stay with Kassia and already misses her doggie friends.
Great visit!! Loved seeing photos! Kassia made us feel comfortable!!
Bo had an awesome vacation with Kassia!! She get us informed and made us know that Bo was having fun! Highly recommend Kassia!
Finn was very well taken care of .Kassia was sure to keep me updated on a daily basis with pictures etc. I am sure Finn enjoyed the home setting and the interaction with other dogs. He came home very tired
My dogs had a great day with Kassia!
Caring and convenient, the best of both worlds! Our dog came home happy and relaxed...she had a great time and we had piece of mind.
Kassia was a wonderful hostess for our sweet dog! She made the whole process very easy, from a meet up prior to the stay to all communication during and prior to the stay. My dog stayed during Christmas vacation, quite a busy time for dog sitters and I got updates via text and Facebook.
Very professional! We will be using her again.
Kassia is very responsive and does a great job at staying in touch during my pup's stay! My pup Sola came home and was such a good happy and tired puppy! Kassia is very attentive and gave me detailed updates on Sola's stay. Will definitely be using her again!!
Kassia is wonderful and we are so lucky to have found her.
Daisy had a fabulous time. She played hard every day and slept well every night. She didn't seem interested in leaving with me when I came to pick her up on the last day. Kassia is very professional and friendly and obviously loves dogs, and she takes very good care of them!
Our dogs had a fun and busy day of play at Kassia's house. They came home ready to nap! Kassia offers a nice home setting that is dog-proofed, which is nice for our curious boys. She runs her service very professionally and with extras like sending the dog bowls home all cleaned and having all of their gear together and ready to travel. The dogs enjoyed finding dog toys to play with as soon as they entered the house, and all of them were safe for our tough chewers.
Journey had such fun with Kassia - she loves her!
We loved having our Boston Terrier Bria stay with Kassia. I was initially very pleased with Kassia and her interest in Bria when we first meet her with our dog.
Kassia is knowledgeable and was professional, organized and focused on caring for Bria.
Kassia discovered all of the qualities we love about Bria and more! She even had Bria playing with other dogs which she seldom does.
Kassia kept in contact with us and sent us a few pictures while we were away which we loved.
There was plenty of space for dogs and it was obvious the Kassia's day was spent focused on dog care.
Kassia has my highest recommendation for dog care!
Daycare with Kassia was great our puppy had fun. Kassia was so kind to send a video to let us know everything was fine . Will book again .
Kassia made us feel comfortable the moment we met her. We knew she was the right person to take care of Truffles while we were away.

The home and space for the dogs was just out of this world, clean and nice, all hard wood floors and small beds and sofas dedicated to dogs.

She kept us updated of how Truffles was doing everyday by sending video clips and pictures.

I look forward to hosting Truffles with you again.

Thank you Kassia for your love and care towards Truffles.

Kassia was great! It was our first time at daycare w her and she took the time to show us around her home and let "maggie" my black lab settle in. I really appreciated the videos she posted so that I could check in on her. She came home a totally exhausted and happy puppy!! Can't wait for our next visit!!
We were very happy with the excellent care Kassia took of our Goldendoodle. The big fenced-in back yard was a great place for the dogs to run and play as well as the covered play area! We loved that she sent us updates with pictures and our dog came home very happy and healthy!! Will definitely hire Kassia again.
Isis had an awesome time and Kassia was super flexible with our abnormal schedule!!
Nova is 3 months old and had a great time with Kassia. The setup for the dogs is really nice. We like that there is a Facebook page with pictures of our dog playing. We will be repeat customers and have already booked another doggie daycare session next week. Thanks
She was great with all 3 of our dogs - thank you
Where can you find boarding where they are not in cages, can play outside, have the freedom to roam around the place and sleep on their own bed? Our medium-large dog was well taken care of and she didn't come home with a cold like she normally did from the typical kennel. The place was clean and Kassia was easy to work with and it's obvious she loves animals. So happy with her and Abby's stay. Definitely using her from now on!
Kassia is an exceptional pet sitter! We entrusted our two dogs with her while away on vacation and even got regular updates via text messages and Facebook. She clearly has a way with animals. One of our dogs is very shy around new people, yet immediately took to Kassia. She certainly gave us piece of mind while we were away.
My puppy had a blast! Kassia took such great care of our 8 month puppy. Thanks for a great experience.
Our dog had a a great vacation with Kassia. He actually had too much fun since he has been sleeping since we got home. I would recommend Kassia to watch your dog too. Jim D.
Watching facebook posts, you could see how happy Liam was. He loved playing with the other dogs. Kassia does a wonderful job understanding your dog's preferences. Liam likes to sleep by the front door - so she let him at her home. In the heat of the summer, being a berner, he wanted to come inside, so she brought him in. We would highly recommend Kassia!
My two girls Mimi and Lexie have never been boarded, since we have family who take care of them for us when we are away. This time the whole family was going away and we were lucky enough to find Kassia while searching the Internet. We could not be happier. Kassia sent text updates daily and we loved seeing pictures of dog activities on Facebook. Our beagle is a little shy. It was reassuring to see her happy face. Kassia even sent home a little note and special treat for each of our 4 legged children. I will definitely call Kassia again when we need someone to take care of our dogs and highly recommend Pup'n Pals.
For the short time my dog was boarded she seemed to like it. I was asked to come back from my trip early which was an inconvenience.
Kassia is amazing. We had such peace on vacation knowing our Millie was being cared for by someone who really loves animals.
Kassia was great to work with. Pippa was well taken care of and returned home happy and not smelling like a dog kennel. We enjoyed her posts on Facebook. It was nice seeing the other dogs that Pippa was spending time with. Kassia even included a thank you note and home made dog treats in her take home belongings. What a nice personal experience!
Milo had a wonderful time staying with Kassia for 3 days. He was well cared for. Milo was busy and happy the whole time and we were able to enjoy our mini vacation. We received pictures and updates of Milo having a great time with his new pals. Milo came home clean and happy . Loved the doggie cookie gifts (very Thoughtful). Milo is only 6 months old and this was his first time overnight boarding with a sitter. I will only use her services going forward. Thank you so much Kassia for taking such good care of our Milo.
TIno and Ossie had a great stay.
My dog Rusty tends to get nervous in new places but he adjusted really quickly and was happy running and playing with the other dogs within no time ! Kassia was awesome with providing updates and posting pictures. Rusty had a great time!
Jack had a wonderful time with Kassia. He was well cared for. This was a great experiance for both Jack and us. Thanks to Kassia
Kassia was great! My dogs were a bit nervouse around the other dogs but Kassia told me her process for introducing them to the other dogs. She took the time to let them meet ONE dog at a time and didn't get another in until they were comfortable with the other. It takes a great deal of time to do it that way and shows her level of commitment to doing a great job! YES, I would ABSOLUTLY leave my dogs there again!!
My Izzy spent a week with Kassia and the experience was positive all around. My dog was busy and happy the whole week and I was able to enjoy my vacation as I received pictures and updates of Izzy's doggy vacation with her new "friends". Picked her up and she was clean and not stressed out as I have experienced in the past when using traditional kennels. I think Izzy really misses her time at "Pup 'n Pals"! We will definitely be regulars!
Oliver & Astro had a wonderful time at Kassia's! We received picture updates during the week and loved the doggie cookie gifts from Kassia. I would not hesitate to book with Kassia again. Thank you for taking such good care of my dogs!
We had an excellent experience with Kassia! Our Zoe can be anxious at times, but she adjusted easily, was clearly loved, and happy. We have always been hesitant to take vacation time and leave her- not anymore! Excellent experience for us all, and adorable pictures to share with our daughters while we were away.
Our Golden was treated perfectly while in the care of Kassia. She is very reliable and we are extremely happy with the way she treated our little boy.
Kassia took great care of our puppy while we were away! Angel is only 5 months old and this was her first time being away with us. She had a great time with Kassia!
Kassia is professional and has a great understanding of what people who board dogs need to feel comfortable leaving them. We immediately hit it off as did our dog. Her set up is perfect for dog lovers to feel comfortable. I highly recommend her services as long as she is not so busy she cannot care for our dog!
I can't say enough great things!! I finally found someone in the area that I feel 100% confident will take great care of my dog. I will only use her services going forward. Thank you so much Kassia!
I have known Kassia for many years, since she was a young girl, although having her pet sit for my dogs was a new experience for me. I was not surprised that she was fabulous with both of them. My dogs are not easy and they do require special attention. Kassia went out of her way to send me pictures/updates and had nothing but positive things to say about them!

I have boarded my dogs in many different types of situation and atmospheres and I have to say this was hands down my best experience of all. I will recommend her every chance I get although it makes me nervous that she will be so popular that I won't be able to book her when I need her unless I call a year in advance! Yes, she is that amazing!
Best experience! Kassia was so friendly and professional, felt as if we have known her forever! Complete trust! Can't wait for our next trip! We will defiantly rebook with her! Kassia went above and beyond to accommodate all our dogs special medical needs as well as extra cuddles! It was so nice to come home to stress free animals! The transition was seamless! Thank you again!
Our lab loves Kassia. We're so happy we found her!
Kassia is fabulous! She was very accommodating to my schedule, has a lovely home and truly cares for pets. We did a trial meet and I knew instantly my four legged child would be well taken care of. That said when we returned to pick up my dog she had clearly bonded to Kassia and even jumped up to kiss her before we left.
I will most definitely use Kassia again and have already recommended her to friends.
Kassia is an excellent host! She took great care of our dog while we were on a week long trip. I highly recommend!
Kassia was very sweet and I felt so lucky having found her and letting her watch my "baby" 14 year old Jack Russell Meco. This was my first time leaving him behind since I moved here to New England six months ago. She kept me posted a few times a day with updates and pics of Meco's day and he was very happy and relaxed when I came to pick him up. I definitely recommend this host and I will be using her again if I have to take any trips without my baby Meco!
Our 6 month old Golden Retriever stayed with Kassia overnight earlier this week. I am very happy with the experience. She is very easy to work with and is a very nice person. We will definitely use her for longer trips this summer. Very glad we found her!
We were worried about our pup being away for a week for the first time. Kassia and her home became Bruschi's home away from home. Highly recommend boarding with Pups n Pals vs boarding where they sleep in a concrete cage. Thanks!!
Kassia was so great! My dog absolutely loved her. Highly recommended!
My dog, Bailey just spent a week with Kassia and it was a GREAT experience. He came home happy, healthy and calm. He had clearly had a great time at Kassia's and got plenty of exercise and loads of loving attention. She has a great set-up with a giant fenced backyard and areas inside to separate 'guest' pets if they need a little space from each other. She let me know thorough out the week how my boy was doing. I will definitely be using Kassia as my dog boarder again.
Kassia has a very nice setup and Sabar loved her. I highly recommended Kassia to anyone who is looking for a safe and comfortable place for their dog.
First time using Kassia and could not be happier. I was nervous leaving my 3 year old yorkie with someone new but he was obviously well cared for and happy while with her.. I loved her meet and greet policy before booking with her . It showed she was very professional and caring about making sure there is a connection of comfort with both owner and pet. Her home is spacious,immaculate and set up well to accommodate the pet guests. Kassia sent pics and updates while I was away and the doggy cookies and thank you note when I picked him up was very cute.. I will definitely use her again .
Kassia was great! She was very communicative when I had questions or requests and I always felt comfortable knowing that Ollie was well looked after. I was especially impressed by how well she got to know him during his nearly two week stay - when I came to pick him up, we laughed about some of his funny personality traits. I would absolutely choose Kassia again next time we need a place for Ollie to stay. Worlds better than a kennel experience!
Kassia went out of her way to accommodate my schedule and take care of my dog, Samson. I was glad she wanted to meet Samson before the boarding. Samson loved her spending time with Kassia, especially in the huge backyard.
Kassia did a great job!
Kassia boarded our rabbit for 10 days and she was excellent. She gave us updates and was very enthusiastic to watch our bunny. Our rabbit is used to human interaction and we felt extremely comfortable knowing she would be with Kassia and getting that interaction. Kassia discussed and asked us many questions concerning our rabbits schedule, food, etc., which made us feel really confidant that our pet was in good hands. Bonnie (our rabbit) was very calm and comfortable when we dropped her off. We also have a dog and I would feel very comfortable leaving her with Kassia as well. This whole DogVacay experience has been wonderful.
The experience for Coopah and us was outstanding.

We wish we had known about this service long. Kassia treated Coopah like he was her own. He loved his toys and made a new friend with Gracie.

The dog treats and thank you note were especially sweet. Thank you, Kassia
Kassia is the best. She has hosted Buddy before, and she provides his home away from home! Buddy loves her!
Kassia was a perfect match for us and our dog Bud. She truly cares about animals and put our minds at ease so we could enjoy our vacation. She kept in contact with us even sending a picture of our dog enjoying outside play time. We will be using her again in the future.
This was the fourth time we've used Kassia & I can't say enough about how I LOVE bringing my dogs to her. She's so caring, understanding & compassionate. She loves them & they love her. I have one dog who's very shy and she just loves Kassia, which says a lot!! I would HIGHLY recommend her! THANK YOU, Kassia for taking such great care of Bode & Delaney!
Kassia is the best! She truly loves animals, and her care, love, and compassion are beyond wonderful. We have boarded our doxie at various kennels in the past, but he always came home nervous, tense, and thin. We left him with Kassia recently, and he came home totally relaxed and unruffled…..which I am truly grateful for. During his vacation, Kassia sent pictures and texts, and we could tell he was enjoying himself and very comfortable. He even made a new friend there! Kassia has our highest recommendation!
I could not have asked for a more reliable loving home for Leo to stay at while I was out of town. Highly recommend this trustworthy lady!
Kassia is amazing with my Leo. More than a loving home experience. Leo has made new friends! He has been very well cared for.
Kassia took great care of our dogs. I was more nervous than the dogs were as we've never really left them overnight with anyone, but she made me feel so at ease. She texted me frequently with updates on how they were doing and she took wonderful care of them. Excellent experience for the dogs & myself! I would totally recommend her for your pet(s)! I'll be using her for all my trips when the dogs can't join us!
Link had a great time with Kassia during his weekend vacay. Kassia was very friendly and Link seemed right at home. He enjoyed many leisurely strolls and enjoyed romping around in the backyard with the other dog Kassia was sitting. Great experience!
