About Dietrich

48 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I train service dogs for the disabled and provide walking and boarding services for dogs needing exercise, special care, and training. If you have a service, therapy, or otherwise well-trained dog, you do not want them learning bad habits while you are away -- because I specialize in initial and remedial training you'll protect your dogs learned behaviors when boarding with me. I also specialize in exercise for high energy dogs and dogs needing to shed some weight -- I'll walk 10-16 miles a day and take dogs along as capable and needed!

Your pet is my focus, not merely an extra duty during your pet's stay. I make sure your pet will get plenty of walks (typically 4 -5 per day weather conditions permitting) and exercise for the perfect stress-free stay.

I'm a professional dog trainer experienced with service dogs, large breeds, puppies, and special needs pets. I can train dogs in English, German, French, and Hebrew! Ex-military, pet CPR certified, first aid trained for poisoning, hot spots, wounds, broken nails, and other ailments. I've taken care of pups when they're not feeling well.

I can continue your work on behavior issues and help on obedience, barking issues, aggression, and other behaviors. If your dog is a service dog or highly trained dog, I will maintain their routine and discipline to keep the temperament consistent. From experience, it can take months to correct newly learned unwanted behaviors -- I'll guard against that.

I play, walk, run, feed, and give them freedom to roam in my home! My 1100 square foot home is setup for their visit.

Overnight is $60. Drop-off is after 8pm and pickup is by 10am the next morning. Additional time prior or after is not a problem - I will prepare a custom quote for you based on pro-rated day care rates in addition to the overnight.

Daycare for up to 10 hours is $60. For more than 10 hours, please message me for a custom quote.

24-hour rate is $100 per day. The first day is pro-rated to $60 if drop-off is after noon. The last day is pro-rated to $60 if pick-up is before noon.

A typical day with me involves walks along Commonwealth Avenue, the Esplanade or any of the many parks around Back Bay, playtime at home, and lots of interaction to keep your dog happy and relaxed.

A much better alternative to stressing your family pet in an unfamiliar neighborhood with unfamiliar smells, at a kennel with chlorine wiped spaces where overnight poop does not get cleaned until the morning, and where 1-on-1 playtime costs extra!

Glad to schedule a meet and greet with your pup or kitten! Find me on Instagram under "dietrichboston" or FaceBook under "Back Bay Paws" (facebook.com/bbpaws)

Repeat clients, hotel visitors to Boston, or new clients with any questions, please message me for a custom quote! Text messaging me to my phone # is the best way to reach me (I'll provide my #).

Dietrich did a great job with Jack, who can take a little bit of time warming up to people. We got pictures of his adventures around Boston every day and came back to a happy pup! Couldn't have asked for more.
Great experience. Dietrich was professional, friendly, and very flexible.
