    Doggie Daytrippers offers unique and personalized care for Boston's finest dog — YOURS! We're proud to have been featured in the BOSTON PHOENIX and highlighted in BOSTON MAGAZINE in "The Ultimate Guide to Pampering Your Pets." With us, your dog can spend hours off-leash each day on a Field Trip or Daycare. They will be outside — in the fresh air — hiking, swimming, & playing with friends while supervised by members of our small, caring staff. Need more proof? Check out these happy faces! We also offer evening and weekend B & B & B (that's bed, breakfast, and bone) services. And for those dogs who are not able to particpate in our off-leash fieldtrips, we have neighborhood walks available as well as City Hikes and City Excursions. Your canine family member will be under expert and loving care tailored to their particular needs. We believe, and our clients agree, that it is more fun to go out and sniff and explore new sites and smells than to stay inside — or on-leash — all day! We visit only the best areas for our fieldtrips — see some of the locations we visit!

                              On July 18, 2012 our beloved French Bulldog overheated in a minivan driven by a Doggie Daytrippers staff member. On July 19, 2012 Kenseth died from injuries suffered as a result from overheating while in the care of Doggie Daytrippers. Before signing on to use Doggie Daytrippers services we asked the owner Karen Nash to come to our house for an interview. During this interview we asked two very specific questions. First, does your staff receive training on Frenchies and know how to deal with their breathing issues. Second, if anything happens to Kenseth while in your care will you cover the vet bill. Karen Nash answered yes to both. You can imagine our surprise when we met the office manager at Angell Hospital and found our dog unresponsive because Kenseth's temperature exceeded 108 degrees. As the severity of the situation was becoming apparent we were told Karen Nash was not going to cover the expenses related to our dog's care. Through an investigation by the MSPCA Police it has come to light the only training Karen's staff receives is a pamphlet which sits on the desk at the main office. We learned there were nine other dogs in the van and our Kenseth was put in the back farthest from the air conditioning. In addition, the driver of the van had been on the job only three days. It is important to point out that Karen Nash was unwilling to do an internal investigation to determine how our dog lost her life. Karen Nash was less than cooperative with the MSPCA Polices repeated requests to discuss the chain of events until the Police arrived at her place of business. As if losing our four year old healthy pet and family member was not bad enough we have had to deal with the complete lack of compassion by Karen Nash. Karen was notified of what happened to Kenseth before the staff brought our dog to Angell. During our time at Angell, Karen would not speak to us and still has not acknowledged the passing of our dog. We have obtained a lawyer in an attempt to get answers to open questions concerning the incident. Our lawyers sent a letter to Karen Nash on August 31, 2012 via certified mail which she has refused to sign for not once but five times, along with messages left for her. As dog owners/lovers we felt it was not only important but our responsibility to ensure Kenseth received good and loving care while we were at work. We paid Doggie Daytrippers and Karen Nash to provide these services and they did not fulfill their agreement.

                                  DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! They left my friends dog in their van for 40 minutes this week and she died yesterday. Please read some of the reviews on Yelp and other sites, there is a history of issues ranging from lost dogs, skipped walks and dogs overheating.

                                    Horrendous!

                                    They lost my dog, took no responsibility for it and the walker later fessed up that she lost my dog the day prior but someone driving down the road picked her up and delivered her back to them. Within that week they lost 2 other dogs as well and those are just the ones I know about. I have been to the Fells and have seen these off leash companies in action. It is not unusual to see one walker with 15 dogs or so. I would never use these guys ever again and was literally revolted by Karen. She at one point said she "I don't give a sh*t about your dog" while she was missing. Oh and in the interview she told me she had never lost a dog. After my dog went missing I talked to a handful of people who claimed the same, that DDT lost their dog as well.
