“The Farm”

When I was in the 5th grade, my parents made the difficult decision to put our dog “Rusty” to sleep.  As my brothers and I loved Rusty (despite his chronic misbehavior), they didn’t tell us that this was what they were doing.  Instead, they told us, like many other parents had told their children in similar circumstances, that Rusty was “going to a big farm where he would be happy”!  While I was still heartbroken, the thought of Rusty running freely on a great big farm made me feel better.  This always stuck with me.  I’ve thought for years that offering a service for dogs to experience the expanse & freedom of a country farm would not only be well-received, but would be a much-needed healthy reprieve for the cooped-up suburban dog. 

Well, here we are years later and we now have just what the vet ordered: a round-trip, home pick-up taxi for your pup to a farm for playtime with other friendly dogs!  We pick-up a group of carefully-selected, friendly & sociable dogs, and take a scenic drive to our private farm in Gaithersburg.  While at the farm, we offer off-leash group play in a large fenced-in area. For our off-leash adventures, we offer GPS tracking collars for added safety.  The total outing for a “1-hour” session might actually be around 2 hours with the scenic shuttle-time added in!
