Somerville Dog Walking
We believe that a dogs life should take place outdoors, in different locations. We don't just walk dogs around the same neighborhood in massive, unruly packs. We take small, managable groups to run around dog parks or the woods, or to walk by the Charles River. Our dogs roll around in fresh grass or snow. We go where the dogs would tell you they want to go, if they could.
We also believe that most dogs need more than a few minutes of activity, which is why we offer anywhere from 30 minutes (a typical walk) to 3+ hours (what we call a "Day Trip").
Why a Doggy Day Trip and not Day Care?
Think of a Day Trip like a "Field Trip for Doggies". With 3 hours of activity in places where dogs can experience the world as dogs were intended (their nose and their excitement in full gear), your dog will use up the majority of their energy for the day. After walking, running and playing for hours, when these dogs go home, they'll most likely go to sleep for a few hours.
While doggy day care can take your dog all day, the majority of that day your dog is in the same room, with the same dogs and the same people. The excitement level drops off dramatically after a short time. No running, no fun smells, no trees, no swimming, maybe a short walk. Plus at doggy day care, your dog can learn bad behaviors from other dogs, like eliminating indoors, or they can pick up illnesses from being in close quarters with others all day.
