A Local Service Run By Students

Doggie Days connects pet owners with responsible, dog-loving students who have tons of energy and love to share with your pups. Depending on your pet’s needs, we will assign someone willing to walk or run with your pet. We can also arrange group pet play at dog parks or care for your pet in your home when you are away.

100% of the proceeds go directly to the students, allowing you to pay lower prices while supporting local students. While we are a student run organization, we screen each pet carer for basic pet etiquette, behavioral best practices, emergency situation competency, and reliability. Before choosing a carer for your pet, we encourage and will help arrange a meet & greet to ensure a great match between the pet owner, pet, and carer.

Our Values

  • High quality exercise and play for your pet
  • Affordable prices for pet owners that want extra help getting their pets the exercise they deserve
  • Support for local students who love dogs

How We Started

A busy third year MIT student that didn’t yet have time to get her own puppy, Wendy decided to find another way to spend time with dogs before she graduated. She tried dog walking apps, but the requests were often far away and required the pet owners to pay extra for the app service.

Wendy thought there must be a better way to spend time with dogs, and get some exercise while doing it, so she started Doggie Days as an experimental project in March 2020, along with the help of a few of her friends.
