Most dogs don't get nearly enough exercise. A typical owner will take their dog for a walk once, maybe twice a day. But with a dog playgroup, your dog will get much more exercise running around than a dog walking on a leash will.
We'll come right to your house and pick up your dog for 90 minutes of romping good fun!
And we'll bring your dog home again. You'll come home to a tired, but very happy, pooch.
Dogs are pack animals and need to socialize with their own kind to be happy. A dog playgroup allows your pet to practice interacting in a fun, active way with other dogs.
Their day includes fun in the park with swimming (summer), ball-fetching, stick-tugging, and playing chase with some of their doggie buddies.
The ideal dog for our playgroups is one that loves to play with no aggression issues and must come when called. We're happy to evaluate your dog. Sometimes an owner will say they have a hard time leashing their dog when playtime is over, but we have found the opposite to be true when the dog is out with his buddies; he stays right with the group and comes readily. A dog that loves treats is also a big plus.
We have clients in the Massachusetts towns of Cambridge, Weston, and Wellesley.
While some companies have large playgroups of 10 or more dogs, we like to keep things small. Our groups are never any bigger than five dogs.
Ever watch Cesar Millan on the Dog Whisperer? If you have you'll know that many of the dog problems like barking when no one is home are partially caused by not enough exercise. Just because a dog is in a big yard does not mean he will run around all by himself. He needs other dogs to encourage him to take part in chase games and play.
