Avoid! I am familiar with a MSPCA investigation into this company where a dog died while in their care because it was left in an car, no ac, on a very hot day for an extended period of time. While I live and work very close to this business, I wouldn't take the chance of this happening to my little guys and so I board my dogs elsewhere.

Don't know what we'd do without them.

We've been using the Doggie Daytrippers team for a few months now and I don't know what we'd do without them.

Extraordinary.

After having a terrible experience with a local walker, our family hired Doggie Daytrippers. We used their services (three times a week) for the past year and a half, until we moved out of the service area. The service they provided our *very* high energy, high maintenance dog was extraordinary. Our walker, Dennis, was extremely kind, patient and willing to take on our dog, Calie, who has had a history of aggression. The owner, Karen, was honest, communicative, reliable and even made a personal trip to our house to observe Calie the first day to ensure a good experience. The walker always left a note, telling us what happened during the day, if our dog peed or pooed, etc. They also managed to find a group of dogs that Calie got along with so she could go out on group playdates -- each evening she returned home tired and happy. I knew it was a good fit when she started crying with excitement when the van pulled into our driveway on pickup days - she couldn't wait to see Dennis! I cannot recommend this company more - they are trustworthy professionals who treated our dog like their own. We miss you already, Karen and Dennis!

They are all wonderful

I have used a lot of dog walking services in the Boston area since we got our lab three years ago and Doggie Day Trippers by far offers the best services and prices of all the companies we have tried. Unlike many of the other services we have used, they are 100% reliable and ALWAYS show up when they say they are going to. We typically use their 45 minute romp service where they pick up our dog, drive her to a safe location and let the dogs off leash to run and play for about 45 minutes. Given travel time, it ends being a few hour long excursion and we know our dog is playing and having fun the entire time. She always comes home happy and tired, which is a nice treat for us as well! We have met the owner and two of the walkers and they are all wonderful and clearly have a passion for animals. I have been home a few times when they have picked up our dog and to see how excited she is to see them makes me feel very confident that they take good care of her! The walkers always leave notes about pick up and drop off time and fill us on what they did that day, which is greatly appreciated. I could not be happier with this company and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for someone trustworthy to care for their pet!

Extremely accomodating

They have been extremely accomodating and anytime there has been a fill in walker, I have been contacted by phone since I have to coordinate pick-up and drop offs. My walker Gretchen is great and very accomodating. She texts me everytime she drops my dog off and gives me updates.

Such a wonderful service

She has become the sweetest dog - and while we would love to take all the credit, we have to give credit to Doggie Day Trippers for offering such a wonderful service and socializing her at such a young age.

Enjoy having a reliable walker

At this point, I'd feel comfortable recommending Doggy Daytrippers to other dog owners, and would only encourage them to meet with someone from the service, clearly confirm all of the important details, and enjoy having a reliable walker come take care of your dog when you can't be there.

Service has been great.

After the bumpy first day, which turned out to be an honest misunderstanding, service has been great. Our walker, Michelle, has shown up every day, left us notes regarding her time spent with our puppy, and we haven't had any other problems.

I love Doggie Day Trippers.

I love Doggie Day Trippers. They are more than willing to work with my erratic schedule and my dog always comes home happy. I will admit sometime a little dirty, but that just assures me that he had a great time.

I HIGHLY recommend Doggy Day Trippers

Our dog is like our kid, and I don't trust him with just anyone. I HIGHLY recommend Doggy Day Trippers to anyone that needs their dog walked or overnighted.

She went way beyond the call of duty

I have been using Doggie Day Trippers for about a year and a half now. Our dog is pretty hyperactive to say the least, but the walker Sam is amazing with him and loves my dog as her own. Diggy does this crazy jump thing when me or my fiance come home, but now is starting to do it for Sam. Not only is she great with the dog, one day she came to pick him up and I was home with the flu, so she took him for the day so when he came back he was tired and just slept next to me. She went way beyond the call of duty and things like that go a LONG way.
