What do Canine Aspirations’ Rompin' Rovers playgroups do for you?

Rompin' Rovers playgroups keep your dog busy during the day while you are busy with your life.  When you come from work, your dog will be calm and ready to relax with you in front of the TV.

What do Rompin' Rovers playgroups do for your dog?

Rompin' Rovers playgroups are great for social, small, and medium sized young adult dogs that love to run, play, and wrestle with other dogs and like going for car rides! 

Who qualifies for playgroups?

Dogs that love to play with other dogs and are under 50lbs are eligible for our Rompin' Rovers playgroups.  An interview and trial days are required to see if our playgroups are a good match for your pup. 

"If you are looking for piece of mind when you are away and your dog is being boarded or participating in  playgroups, then Canine Aspirations is your answer! Our dog, Sadie, feels beyond comfortable at Jenn's home and we love that she gets to socialize with other dogs over a watchful eye. There is nothing like feeling at ease and knowing your pup is in good hands. - Stephen and Angela Athan, clients for over 7 years

What happens during Rompin' Rovers playgroups?

We will come pick up your dog at your home and bring him and up to 7 of his friends to a large, private fenced in yard. All dogs ride safely in crates in our minivan. Dogs get to play for 60-90 mins and then we drive your dog and his friends back home. Our playgroups are held outdoors, so when the weather is poor, we may cancel or reschedule. We have 3 separate fenced yards to divide your pups by size and temperament.

When do Rompin' Rovers playgroups occur?

We have AM playgroups that run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We pick your dog up between 9:30-11:30am at your home and then return them after the playgroup (usually between 1:00- 3:00pm).

How much does it cost?

Individual Rompin’ Rovers playgroups are $50-60/day depending on your location

Memberships are available for existing clients and new clients after a month-long new dog probation period.

Our current playgroup route is accepting new clients in the towns of: Sudbury, Hudson, Berlin, Bolton, Stow, Marlborough, Southborough, and Northborough, MA.

"My young dog needed more socialization and exercise than I could manage at home. I wanted him to be part of a small group, supervised by someone experienced in dog behavior and training. The playgroup at Canine Aspirations' has been the perfect fit for Stewie and he always comes home happy!" - The Lynch Family

"Our small dog has done training, playgroups and boarding at Canine Aspirations for the past 6 years. He absolutely loves Jenn and playing with his furry friends - he always comes home happy and tired! Best of all we have complete peace of mind leaving him in her expert care at his "home away from home". This is top-notch service, we couldn't be happier with our experience." - The Shea Family
