About Us

Off The Leash (OTL), opened in November of 2007 and is owned and operated by Emily McHugh. Emily, a dog lover with a Marketing and Business background, wanted to set up a place where parents felt comfortable leaving their furry family member, for the day or the week, without any guilt or worry whatsoever and where our canine friends could run, play and rest off the leash.

With over 13 years of experience serving canines in SE Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Emily is dedicated to providing families with a safe, comfortable, and fun home away from home. She is passionate about providing a full-service dog care program designed to ensure, through compassion, education and communication, that the physical, emotional and safety needs of each pup are being met. Emily is a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, International Boarding and Pet Services Association, and a member of The Dog Gurus. Emily is a graduate of Providence College in Rhode Island, Red Cross Pet First Aid and CPR certified and continues to attend numerous dog related conferences and workshops nationally.

So far, team OTL has shared their lives with an incredible number of dogs, each unique and amazing in their own special way. We consider ourselves very lucky and promise that we will continue to strive to be the best at what we do, provide your family with top notch service and provide you with the convenience of it all in one spot!

We love dogs and are grateful everyday that we get to work with them (and their parents!).
