Marina Bay

550 Victory Road. Quincy, MA

Pop in after a waterside walk with your pup, or before a nice dinner on the water.  From our self-serve dog wash, to high-end nautical themed retail, to our open space for birthday parties and get-togethers, we strive to provide you and your pup amenities that you can find nowhere else!


Aiming to provide personalized service to all of our daycare dogs, we cap our daily intake at 30 dogs.  Our daycare caters to dogs within the Marina Bay community, Squantum, and the neighborhood immediately adjacent to our location. Each dog is guaranteed AT LEAST 6 hours of monitored playtime and one walk per day.

Due to the residential nature of Marina Bay, our hours of operation are Monday through Friday 7:30am to 4:00pm. If you can not pick up your dog by 4:00pm we offer drop off service for a minimal cost! Also ask about our new “extended day” add-on.

All dogs must be non-aggressive, have current vaccinations, and will go through our vetting process in order to make sure we are a good fit together!

Dog Walking & Playgroups

Servicing Marina Bay, Squantum, and areas of North Quincy we provide a range of services to fit your dog’s needs!

10 minute bathroom break – $14 ($3 per dog in same household)

Great for puppies or senior dogs as a quick check-in and potty break.  We highly recommend this service for puppies under 6 months multiple times per day spaced 3-4 hours apart

20 minute group walk – $19 (+$10 per dog in same household)

A walk with no more than 2 other dogs.  Dogs must have proper leash manners to be included in group walk for the safety of our staff and dogs

20 minute individual walk – $22

A perfect option for dogs who need more one on one attention or does not always play nice with other pups

35 minute playgroup – $23 (+$15 per dog in same household)

For dogs who need more than just a walk, your dog will travel in one of our walker’s cars to our fenced in dog yard.  All dogs must be non-aggressive and travel well in cars.  This is our most sought after service so we have limited availability.

DIY Wash

Come check out our state of the art DIY dog wash. Each wash name pays homage to someone who has helped The Modern Dog grow to where we are today. Being at The Marina, we thought what better way than to name a wash after their boat!

Shockwave – $8
