About Bobbi-Jo.

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If your looking for a unique and personalized place to allow your dog to have fun and practice their manners, your found it!
We offer a "Stay and Play" package for any dog of any size and tailor your dogs stay to their needs. We love what we do and it shows with our commitment to your dog and their experience while here, each dog is treated as if they are our own.
All dogs sleep in our dog room and/or crated at night and when we leave to ensure everyone's safety.
We are completely comfortable caring for dogs with most behavior or medical issues (Please message us first to make sure we can accommodate your pup!).

We have a large open yard for bigger dogs to romp and play, large water dishes and a kiddie pool on those hot days.
For the smaller pups, we have the addition of two cozy kennel runs complete with blankets and toys available for dogs under 10-15 lbs to run in (see picture for size).
ALL dogs (including our own) sleep in the house with us in a crate or our dog room. We do this for the safety of each dog and also ensure each dog has a place of their own to relax away from others if they wish.
Kennel runs outside are for quick potty breaks only or in warm weather, for smaller dog's to play.
During the winter months, we have plenty of dog beds with blankets to snuggle under- Just take a look at the pictures!
I am a wife, mom to my 8yr old son, dog trainer and animal care provider with over 10 years in the pet care industry.

Your dogs will be able to romp and play with my dogs as well as any dogs here for daycare to ensure they are plenty tired by the time they head home.

Note: If we feel your dog is a saftey risk, we reserve the right to limit or exclude interdog play. Those dogs will get one on one attention with playtime with us as well as walks when requested.
We also do hikes to a nearby location if requested. Excellent references available- just ask!
Also, our cost is PER NIGHT, not per day :)
** Please note that to help your dog relax before bedtime, we request that Drop off be No Later than 4pm.**

I can do drop off and pick up within 10 miles of Haverhill, Ma.
Please check out our website and be sure to follow us on Facebook for updates of your pup having fun while your away!

I trust Bobbi-Jo 100% with my dog Bruno. She is an experienced dog trainer, has a large yard and will treat your dogs like her own. Highly recommended!
Bobbi-Jo is just wonderful! She took excellent care of my dog while he stayed with her for a weekend, as well as sending me pictures and updates. It's been one day since I've picked him up and I've already signed him up to stay with her again next month while I'm out of state! So happy she was recommended to me, she does an amazing job and it's incredibly relaxing to know that my dog is safe and happy while I'm away.
Bella comes home very tired after her weekend at BobbiJo's home. And she is better behaved too!
Trustworthy and dependable. Love our vacations with Bobbi-Jo!
Always a great time for running and playing! Our dog always comes home tired and happy.
Loving fun for our active pup!
Bobbi-Jo took excellent care of our dog Addy while we were away for a week. She kept us informed all week long via texting and posting pictures which made us feel good that Addy was having fun and being well-cared for. Additionally, upon pick-up, she gave us some great tips for food supplements and treats that will help keep her weight down and less stress on her joints. She really cares about the dogs she watches and it shows! :)
Bella had a great time while we were away for the Thanksgiving week! Thanks Bobbi-Jo.
Bobbi-Jo took such great care of our dog Frankie while we went away for the weekend! She posted photos and it was nice to feel that he was in the hands of a professional. We will definitely be using her for boarding again!
Sugar loved staying with Bobbi-Jo and the other dogs - again! She had tons of fun and we got to see lots of pictures and videos where we could actually see how she is. Sugar will come back! Thanks Bobbi-Jo!
I boarded my dog with Bobbi-Jo while I went away on an extended weekend for my sisters wedding. It was extremely comforting to know that my dog was SO well taken care of. Bobbi Jo sent me daily videos of Russ- showing how much fun he was having with the other dogs. It was so nice to be able to see that he was doing great while I was away! I was worry free!!!!! Would recommend her to all my friends.
Bobbi-Jo did a wonderful job caring for my dog. She knew how to handle him and completely put my mind at ease. She sent me messages and pictures everyday which I greatly appreciated.
Bobbi-Jo is wonderful! She made my first vacation away from my puppy anxiety free. I knew he was in good hands and enjoyed his time with her. Bobbi-Jo is wonderful with dogs, and has a great deal of knowledge. My pup, Ziggy, has some separation anxiety and we were able to work through that with some day care stays previous to my vacation. Ziggy loves to spend time with Bobbi-Jo and the other pups, and comes home happy each and every time!
I am always relaxed when I leave Cady with Bobbi-Jo. I know that my dog will be happy and well taken care of.
Bobbi-Jo rocks! She takes excellent care of my golden retreiver MAX who is 8 months old. He loves going over there to play with all his doggie friends. I am a repeat customer (5 Times) and recommend Bobbi-Jo highly.
I'm so glad I found Bobbi Jo to help take care of my dog Bandit while I am away. My dog has some fear aggression issues so I can't leave him with just anyone. Bobbi Jo keeps him safe and happy and he is always exhausted in a good way when I pick him up. She does a great job of sending updates via text, social media, photos, and videos. I highly recommend Bobbi Jo and the Uncommon Canine to anyone as their dog will be well cared for and kept safe while they are away.
Bobbi-Jo is a very loving and attentive pet parent! She always makes sure that my dog feels safe and has plenty of free time to play. I have the utmost confidence in her and drive over an hour to her house to drop off my dog. SHE IS THAT GOOD. I especially love the photos of how much fun my dog is having. She is a wonderful extension of our family!
It's great knowing that Diego is safe and happy while we are away. Bobbi-Jo does an awesome job making sure that happens!
Bobbi Jo offers an amazing service and I would highly recommend her. Being able to have my dog stay in a wonderful loving home with a caretaker like Bobbi-Jo is the perfect situation. While at Uncommon Canine, Buddy gets to play with other dogs and relax in a comfortable environment.
Bobbi-Jo is committed to making sure all of the dogs are happy, healthy, and feel secure. My dog was shy and nervous and, with the support Bobbi-Jo's careful, thoughtful introduction to the space and other pups, he was running and playing as part of the pack almost immediately. She has a spacious backyard for outdoor play and she will provide a crate for indoor relaxation time. We were beyond thrilled to received picture and video updates and we had every confidence in the world that our dog was in the best hands possible. Bobbi-Jo is easy to talk to, friendly, highly capable, and very knowledgeable about canine behavior and needs. We highly recommend a stay at Bobbi-Jo's!
We have been taking Jazz and Jersie to see Bobbi-Jo for just over a year now for day care, training, Stay-and-Learn, and Stay-and-Play. They love to go over there and they always have doggy friends to socialize with. We have seen so much improvement in our dogs over this past year! The dogs just returned from their most recent Stay-and-Play calm and well-behaved. We know they are always getting the best care when they stay at Bobbi-Jo's. She will reach out to us if there is a problem and she sends us updates. We trust Bobbi-Jo and have absolutely no qualms about passing our dogs over into her loving hands.
Bobbi-Jo was awesome! Max had the time of his life and met lots of new doggy friends. She updated me with photos and videos every single day! I would recommend her for daycare and training to anyone. Max will certainly be going back to Bobbi-Jo's 5 star doggy retreat.

Bobbi-Jo is AWESOME! She is so kind, caring, and takes the time to understand the needs of your dog. We feel comfortable and confident in her ability, and our pup comes back better behaved than when we left him!
Bobbi Jo took great care of our dog Little Buddy and sent us pictures while we were away. He met some new friends and had a good time.
Once again, we couldn't be happier with Bobbi-Jo!!!! You know she is the BEST and loves/cares for my Luca like her own, when I drop him off and he can't get into her house fast enough!! I can't imagine leaving my baby with anyone else! Oh! And he always comes home having learned/worked on good behavior! I can't ask for more!! Highly recommend!!!!
Bobbi-Jo was wonderful! She set aside time to meet with us in advance of the visit and discuss how the stay would go. We were 100% confident and comfortable knowing our dog was in very good hands. He was comfortable, did really well, and one of the best parts was he had to follow the same rules with her as he does with us at home! Bobbi-Jo is the best and is highly recommended!
Bobbi-Jo took great care of my senior (12 year old) dog while I was away for 13 days straight. She crate-trained him, worked on loose leash walking, and work on place with him. She was careful about tailoring his training to his age and arthritis needs. and my dog had a great time with the other dogs there. Bobbi-Jo was great about keeping in touch with me while I was away with pictures and messages.
Bobbi-Jo is phenomenal! I cannot recommend her enough! She understands exactly what my anxious dog needs to feel safe and to have fun. My dog has a great time and always returns happy.
Bobbi-Jo was great with Bella! She gave us some tips to prepare her for the stay and it definitely helped. We will certainly use her again and will also be getting some additional training for us and Bella with Bobbi-Jo soon. Thanks again!!
... we made a reservation with Bobbi-Jo for 2,5 weeks during the summer and had to add another 2 days. It was no problem at all for Bobbi-Jo and we were so happy it worked so that we didn't have to switch between sitters as Sugar-Pie is a timid rescue.
All in all Sugar-Pie had a great time. We got pictures and updates all the time and as we got back she looked great and very happy - and was trained! Loved that part too!
Looking forward to our next vaccation knowing that Sugar couldn't have a better place to stay!
As always, Callee had a wonderful stay with Bobbi-Jo! She always comes home happy, tired, and content…I just know that she feels right at home with Bobbi-Jo and her family (human and canine!)
I feel my dog is safe, happy and well taken care of her care in Bobbi Jo's care. Those are the most important things to me. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to relax and not worry about my dog while on vacation.
Our dog stayed at Bobbi-Jo's place for 3 weeks and absolutely loved it! I wasn't sure if it would be a good idea as we only had our dog since 4-5 months ourselves and were not sure how she would take it.
Bobbi-Jo sent us a lot of updates and Pictures where we could see that Sugar didn't miss us at all! So no worries! Would bring Sugar to Bobbi-Jo every time we have to travel without our dog!
Thanks Bobbi-Jo!
I can't say enough great things about Bobbi-Jo. Rusty always loves his stays with her and thanks to her photo updates I know that he is having simply the best time with her all weekend long. She is always quick to respond to any questions I've had, and is just a all around great and kind person to deal with. I will certainly be using her services again in the future. Thanks again!
Awesome experience with Bobbi-Jo. We only left our puppy with one other sitter for 2 nights before. Our dog Lucy is 19 months old and leaving her is hard. However once meeting Bobbi-Jo and seeing how she definitely knows what she is doing gave us complete confidence. The texting and pictures she kept up to date also made being away from our Lucy so much easier. Lucy had great care, plenty of fun, love and exercise. Will definitely use her again and our so thankful to have found Bobbi-Jo.
Bobbi-Jo is amazing!!! She took in our 1 year-old Goldendoodle, Winnie, over the 4th of July weekend and it was nothing short of a fabulous experience. Her training expertise and genuine love of animals is apparent the second you meet her. We knew Winnie was in the best and most capable hands and never once wondered if our pup was doing OK. We just knew she would have a blast - and she did!!
Excellent!!! Not only was Luca very well taken care of, but he came home a much better behaved boy! We can't wait to go back to learn some more & make more friends!!! Thank you so much Bobbi-Jo!!!!!
As always, Mama loved her time at uncommon K9. She always has a blast and I am able to enjoy myself knowing my furbaby is in excellent hands
Recently my husband was very sick and in the hospital for over a month. Bobbi-Jo was incredibly nice and flexible when we had to extend our dog Ella's stay with her several times. Ella loved her time with Bobbi-Jo and the new friends she made. Bobbi-Jo switched Ella to a healthier food and got her in better shape with the combination of healthy food and lots of exercise. She came home looking and feeling great!
Bobbi-Jo is fantastic!! My dog is very anxious and Bobbi-Jo knows just how to help her feel calm and have fun. She is the best!!
Bobbi-Jo is fabulous!! Bobbi-Jo understands my anxious dog and provides her with everything she needs to feel calm and happy.
Having Bobbi-Jo watch Jack and Belle was probably one of the best things we could have done for our dogs. Not only were they very well taken care of, but, because of her experience and expertise she was able to help us be better puppy parents as well.
This was the first time I left my dog with anyone overnight and I was 100% satisfied and eager to bring my dog back. The home was so dog friendly and the home owners were clearly happy to have my dog.
Kodi and penny had a great time with their new auntie.
We left our 4 month old dobie puppy with Bobbi-Jo while we were away for four days. It was difficult leaving him for the first time, but our minds were quickly at ease when she sent us photos and videos of him playing with other dogs and clearly having a great time! We highly recommend Bobbi-Jo. She is a true professional who obviously loves what she does!
Tobi had a wonderful time with Bobbo Jo. By the end of his vacay, he was kissing her!
Bobbi-Jo is fantastic!! We've used her multiple times now and there is always a positive, noticeable difference in the behavior of our two dogs after staying with her. You can tell that they were really cared for and had a good time! I highly recommend Bobbi-Jo!
Bobbi-Jo was great with my dog. She knows what she is doing and is very professional. I will definitely take my dog back to her!
I was kind of nervous leaving Mugsy with strangers for the first time but became more comfortable after our meet & greet. Bobbi Jo also told us that she would send us pics & video to get updates but unfortunately our phone wasn't compatible. We were able to get texts & she also did some posting on FB so my sister was also able to keep us informed of how Mugsy was doing which was great!! He made new friends & had a wonderful time. I would not hesitate to send Mugsy there again! Thank you for making our vacation more relaxing.
Bobbi-Jo took amazing care of my little boy. When I got there to drop him off it was the first time I felt 100% comfortable leaving him with someone else. she sent pictures to me the entire time I was on vacation. I could go on and on, but I won't. She and her family were great! I'm already booking with her again!!
Left our new rescue dog with Bobby-Jo for a 10 day stay. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous to leave him anywhere as he had only been with us a couple of months. Bobby-Jo quickly put my fears to rest. Within 10 minutes of my leaving, she sent me a video of Bodie playing with another dog, fitting right it. She continued to text pics/videos and updates while we were away so I could see how he was doing. And what fun he was having! My new fear was that he would never want to come home and leave all of his new doggie friends! After bringing Bodie home, he was even more relaxed and easy going than before I left him. When we first adopted him, he was having some possession issues with our older dog over toys and bones.I think the pack at Bobby-Jo's quickly remedied that as he hasn't once gotten possessive over a toy since coming home. Next time we are away, Bodie will definitely be staying with Bobby-Jo!
After our dog developed some anxiety at the dog daycare we used for boarding, we trusted Bobbi-Jo with our dog for a 2-week vacation that we planned. It wasn't an easy decision to leave him somewhere he hadn't stayed previously for that long, but after coming out for a visit and seeing what a natural Bobbi-Jo is with dogs, the decision was infinitely easier. The home setting was exactly what our pup needed and the frequent photo (and even video!) updates from Bobbi-Jo were exactly what we needed to enjoy our much-needed vacation with peace of mind.

As a dog trainer, Bobbi Jo is more than just someone you can trust to watch your dog, you know that your dog will be in the hands of someone trained in dog behavior and can adjust her style to each dog. Highly recommended!
Lotus loves going to stay with Bobbi-Jo. I never worry about Lotus when I leave. I would tell anyone to bring their dog to stay there.
My fur kids had an amzing stay with Bobbi-Jo. She even got my smallest pup to play with other dogs. She hasnt done that in so long! They can not wait to have more fun at Bobbi-Jo's!!
We are very happy with the care provided for our dog Jack. We were a little nervous about leaving our active and anxious dog for 9 days while we went on vacation. Bobbi-Jo understood our concerns, reassured us and provided the best possible care for Jack. She kept us updated with photos and texts so we could see that Jack was enjoying himself and we could relax and enjoy our vacation. Upon returning from vacation, Jack was actually eating better on a schedule and much better behaved for us! We are very satisfied with the Jack's stay at Bobbi-Jo's and will definitely be contacting her for any future vacations.
Rocco always enjoys his visits with Uncommon Canine Academy. He comes home happy and exhausted!! Happy dog is a tired dog :) Definitely feel confident leaving Rocco knowing he is in great hands and he loves attending daycare as well as over night visits!!
