Connerney Pet Services MA (originally called the Fairy Dog Mother Dog walking service), was founded by Janet Connerney in 2001. Janet's playful, loving approach to working with dogs quickly led her to become a significant figure in the lives of numerous dogs and their families, throughout the Cambridge/Somerville/Arlington area.
In 2016, Janet's partner Robyn joined Janet in her dog walking service, at which time they began to expand, renaming themselves Connerney Pet Services MA. Connerney Pet Services MA now offers on and off leash walks, play dates, play groups, and off leash adventures, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.- 8 p.m., and as needed weekend services, in Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington and Medford.
Connerney Pet Services MA is dedicated to building strong, solid relationships with the dogs and families we serve, allowing us to meet each dog's individual needs. Our dogs are matched with the most appropriate and engaging playmates, and we often vary the venues we visit to ensure that every dog remains stimulated and interested. Uses of positive reinforcement strategies, mindfulness, combined with the building of bonds and communication, contributes to each dog's growth and development. Daily text and photo updates keep our clients fully involved and informed. In addition, our commitment to consistency, provides the dogs we serve with the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships both with us and with other dogs in the Connerney Pet Services MA network, contributing to their development, health and overall wellbeing.
We are informed, influenced and inspired by a variety of well-respected dog experts including Tamar Geller, Victoria Stillwell, and Patricia McConnell. You can learn more about our approach and ideas by exploring the blog at the end of this site, which is fully inspired by the dogs we love.
