Crate-Free Boarding in Peabody

Boarding at Riverdog Peabody

We know what it’s like to have to be away from your pup for a night, a weekend, or even longer, so we offer a boarding solution that’s like a home away from home.

Our crate-free boarding allows our dogs to move, play and relax, and we’ve found that most dogs are happier when they’re allowed to move around with other dogs and interact with our round-the-clock staff rather than being in a kennel. Since all dogs are different, we do have individual open crates available for those pups who prefer to sleep in a space of their own.

We offer boarding in a safe, clean, caring environment at our 6,000 sq. ft. Peabody location, which is climate controlled for your pet’s comfort and offers both indoor and outdoor space.



You probably have a lot of questions! There is a lot to consider when looking for someone to care for your furry family members, so let us answer a few of our most common queries here:

With Us

In order to provide the highest quality care for your dog, we require that all dogs joining us for boarding undergo an evaluation with our trained staff. Pups that have already done an evaluation with us for daycare don’t require a separate evaluation unless they have not attended any RiverDog location for over 4 months. However, a half day of daycare in our Peabody facility prior to their first boarding will help set your dog up for success!

Please be aware that if you have a senior dog with special mobility considerations, then crate-free boarding may not be the best option for your pet.  Crate-free means 24/7 socialization, stimulation, and activity, and may be too much for a pup who is older and has weak or compromised joints and muscles. We love all dogs and want them to go wherever is best and safest for them, even if that is not with us. (This does not apply to healthy and boisterous three-legged dogs. We have many tripod dogs that play as hard and fast as their four-legged counterparts!)



  • Evaluation: $28
  • Crate-Free Boarding: $70 per night

Please Note: A holiday surcharge of $10 per night is applicable for Independence Day (7/3/24 through 7/8/2024) Thanksgiving (11/27/2024 through 12/1/2024) and Christmas/New Years (12/20/2024 through 1/2/2025).

RiverDog is now enforcing state mandated dog licensing. Please ensure your dog's license is current, as we now require documented proof in order to attend daycare and boarding.
