philosophy of dogs (PhD)
treat all dogs with the respect that they deserve
Whether the dogs are young or old Labs or Pugs shy and reserved or effervescent and outgoing we at Doggie Daytrippers treat them as the bright, intelligent, sensitive individuals that they are. Individuals who have their own preferences, their own skill levels, their favorite games. At Doggie Daytrippers, we listen to the dogs we watch how and who and what they play with and we cater to their likes and dislikes while matching our activities to their needs and skill levels.
a tired dog is a happy dog
Living in the city is wonderful for dogs and their human companions - so long as everyone's needs are met. That's why we believe "a tired dog is a happy dog - and happier owner." When you come home after a long day at work, you can quietly relax with your dog knowing that he has had a long day "at work", as well.
a well-socialized dog makes a good city-neighbor
Doggie Daytrippers foster an environment of good canine citizenship for our city friends and neighbors. Dogs learn from their peers, and as the pack leader, we set an exemplary role for them to follow.
a dog-etiquette primer
Dog-etiquette is just one of the things we instill in our charges: a paw held out in friendship; kindness to all regardless of size or species; keeping our environment clean for all to safely enjoy.
