Jennifer Thomas

"We couldn't possibly overstate how positive our experience with Pet Recess has been. Julia and staff are wonderful and flexible with our chocolate lab Harley. We started bringing Harley to Weekend Playtime this winter, and we noticed a huge difference in his disposition on Sunday afternoons. He was calm and loveable. On the days that I bring him during the week, he howls in anticipation of his arrival. He had a little anxiety the first time we boarded him, but Sarah sat with him to relieve his anxiety. Every time we pick him up, regardless of whether it is after he has been boarded or for a daily visit, the staff always gives us an update on how he was that day and who he played with. The location is very convenient, and the staff is WONDERFUL."

"I have an 11-month-old Brittany spaniel named Murphy. He has gone to Pet Recess for @ 7 months. He absolutely loves it! He can't wait to get out of the car when we drive up. He loves it! And I love that he can run and play all day and when he comes home he's a tired, happy dog. The staff is very friendly and obviously have a love for dogs. I have felt from day 1, very comfortable leaving my dog with them. Highly recommend Pet Recess!"

Carol, Raynham, MA

"Pet recess is an extraordinary day care for our yellow lab Bella. She is 2 1/2 and has been going to "school" for 2 years and loves it. Bella likes to sleep in most mornings but, is very aware of her days that she goes to school and is ready before I am most mornings. Julia and her staff are very loving and display much patience with the pups. We thought about moving closer to our jobs as we travel some distance but, one of our major concerns was we wanted to keep Bella in a place that she loved, and we felt certain about. So we will keep on traveling a bit so that we can have peace of mind and Bella a wonderful school. We are very fortunate to have found such a terrific place to send our Bella!"


"Pet Recess has been such a help to our family! We have a 2 1/2-year-old beagle corgi mix named Marley who loves to get into mischief at home. When we first adopted Marley, she needed socialization with other dogs. Julia, Amy, Lauren, Sal, and the rest of the Pet Recess team has done an amazing job helping Marley "make friends." We recently had a baby girl, and Marley was feeling a bit jealous of her new sister. Pet Recess is a great outlet for her to go and get some extra love and attention! Marley has even stayed with Julia while we went away for a weekend. It was such a relief to feel so confident that our "furry baby" was safe and having fun at her home away from home while we were gone. Julia and the Pet Recess team truly enjoy what they do, and it shows every day when I go to drop Marley off or pick her up. Someone is always available to answer a question or give advice when needed. It's such a great feeling knowing that Pet Recess takes such good care of Marley and her friends!"
