My name is Kim Folsom and I am the owner and manager of Come Stay Play. I decided to leave my IT job in 2011, to open a doggie day care and boarding service out of my home in Bolton, MA. Heidi Bennett, who has been a veterinary technician since 2001 , helps behind the scenes and as needed. She also provides our simple grooming services.
The goal at CSP is to care for your pet in a happy and safe environment, enabling you to enjoy your time away. Your canine will have ample opportunities to enjoy the outside in approximately a quarter of an acre of completely fenced in space. The dogs go out in all kinds of weather. Beware your dog may go home muddy and tired from romping around the yard with other friends. When the dogs aren't outside exercising, they are inside the cellar in a climate controlled environment. The lower level of the house is divided up into three areas where they can relax and nap in a dog friendly environment with plenty of dog beds, chairs and couches. One area of the cellar contains crates to give dogs down time, let them eat in peace and sleep.
Is your dog a good fit at Come Stay Play?
After we are contacted, we reach out to you to setup a meeting which takes about a half and hour. I meet your dog and have your dog interact with some dogs I have that day. As the owner you get to meet me and see where your dog will stay and play. This initial meeting is so I can see if there are any obvious aggression, SEPARATION ISSUES or fearful tendencies that may eliminate any future visits.
IF ALL GOES WELL, THEN WE SET UP A FEW DAY CARE DAYS AS A ‘TRIAL RUN’ BECAUSE THIS ENVIRONMENT IS NOT FOR ALL DOGS.
WE DO NEED TO CRATE YOUR PET FOR DOGS TO GET THEIR NAPS IN.
WE DO OUR BEST TO MAKE THIS A HAPPY, STRESS-FREE AND SAFE PLACE FOR ALL THE DOGS IN OUR CARE.
Half Days are for new dogs who are new to CSP to see if it is a good fit for the dog.
Flea & Tick preventative
Because your pet is boarding in our home, we require your pet be on veterinary prescribed flea & tick preventative.
Includes: bath, blow dry & ear cleaning
It can be stressful to board your pet. If you have any questions or concerns about how we make your pet's home away from home, please reach out. We will get back to you soon!
