“Obie and Tello have been part of On the Run's pack since they were puppies and the company began operating. Although we walk them throughout the day, they wait patiently at the back door for their outings with them -- it’s the high point of their day. Pat and Yaron have trained them to behave when they arrive, and they wait patiently to have their leashes put on. They clearly love their ‘pack’ of friends and their time to run off-leash in the park or walk along the river, rain or shine. They return home tired and peaceful. I am so grateful to have met Pat and Yaron. I rely on them for training advice as well as dog sitting while we are away. I know Obie and Tello are cared for responsibly and with love, and that our dogs are happy to be with them. As a psychologist myself, I feel that Pat and Yaron are colleagues and friends. They are gifted dog and people psychologists and they communicate openly whenever an issue arises, so that we can work together to resolve situations smoothly. I highly recommend On the Run.” ~ Leslie, Cambridge MA
“Our boy Lolo is a very active and energetic German Shorthaired Pointer. Lolo LOVES his playgroups and can’t wait for pick up time. He gets very excited as soon as he sees or hears Pat and Yaron, since he knows fun times await. But, no matter how excited he is, he shows great manners and respect towards Yaron and Pat, who have taught him proper behavior. In addition to playtime and social interaction, our family has gotten great tips and training from On the Run, as well as tons of love. We look forward to many more fun days and a long term relationship with Pat and Yaron and On the Run!” ~ Andy & Nelly, Cambridge MA
“Playing in the dog park has helped Barbecue, our Welsh Pembroke Corgi, to socialize with dogs of all sizes and ages, and kept him fit. Obesity is the most common health problem for corgis, so it is important that he stays active. When we’re away, we prefer to have Barbecue stay at Pat and Yaron’s rather than with strange people and unfamiliar dogs in doggy daycare. We know that when he stays with them, he’s staying with friends–-human and dog–-in his own neighborhood. In fact, we find him to be a calmer, better behaved dog after a longer visit in their home.” ~ Micky & Gary, Somerville MA
“As first-time dog owners, we were very nervous as we welcomed our rescue hound, Callie, into our home. Callie was pretty anxious too. Not only were Pat and Yaron helpful with all their insight and wisdom backed by many years of experience with dogs, but their services provided Callie a daily routine in which she was allowed freedom to run, and the opportunity to play with new friends. This afforded Callie (and us) the best transition possible.
It is clear that as a hound, a daily twenty-minute walk around the block would not provide Callie with nearly enough exercise. Nor would sitting in a day-care facility. She needs to run, loves to play, and is able to do so under the watchful, responsible eye of the “On the Run” team. Not only is their care for the well being of their charges genuine, but obviously reciprocated in the ferocious tail-wagging which greets them when they come to our home. Callie comes back from her playgroup wonderfully exhausted and spends the remainder of her day relaxed and happy, which brings satisfaction to all of us. ” ~ Lisa, Cambridge MA
“Why do I send my dog Molly to On the Run every day? It’s not because of all the exercise she gets, although that’s wonderful. It’s not because of all the socializing she gets, although that’s important. The real reason I send Molly to On The Run every day is because she loves Pat and Yaron. It’s just that simple. She loves them. Not just likes them, LOVES them. Calmly, profoundly, permanently. Every day that she gets to spend with them makes her happy, which makes me so happy too. They are truly special people and when you meet them, you’ll understand why Molly loves them. More importantly, your dog will understand too.” ~ Darcy, Cambridge MA
