Q: Can A Dog Have Helicopter Parents? NYT: Yes

"My dog's name is Diego del Mar de la Joya Montoya, he ruined my mother's white carpet, prepare to die laughing. [Also, my kid's name is Jack, but whatever.]"

Who Invited The Dog? [nyt]

I think I'm confused now. I looked up "helicopter parents" because I didn't know what it meant, and it apparently means "parents who hover over their children protecting them from learning or doing things on their own."

Seems to me that what the dogs have in the article, is permissive, hands-off parents, and in the case of an ill-trained dog out in public, hovering over it to prevent it from going wild would be appropriate.
