We are a young professional married couple living in Alexandria, VA. Our best bud Gizmo is a 45lb lab mix who loves company any day of the week. We have a fenced in yard that is perfect for playing!

Due to size constraints on our space, we unfortunately can't take the lovable giants, but everyone else is welcome.

Please feel free to bring along any food, medications, or other special items to keep your pooch happy and healthy.

We would love to have the opportunity to meet you and your dog in advance of their stay. Please also feel free to ask any questions or concerns via messaging and we are more than happy to answer.

Thanks for your interest - we look forward to working with you soon!

About Jessica M.:

My husband and I are young professionals in the Alexandria/Annandale area, looking to help out anyone who needs a loving hotel for their dog.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

We have both owned varying sizes and breeds of dogs since early childhood. Some with severe health problems, and others with healthy, energetic personalities, so we are ready for anything. Our current pup is a rescue from a kill-shelter in South Carolina, and is about 3 years old with an energy to match.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

We would love to know a little more about your dog, his tendencies, and how he interacts with other people and dogs. We would love to be able to meet in person as well, schedules allowing. We have a great park available for a no-pressure encounter.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes. We have a car.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Absolutely! Our pup takes meds every morning, so we are accustomed to sticking to a schedule.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

We work from home, so your dog will be out of the crate and free to roam the house all day. We also take at least 1-2 long walks during the day, with potty breaks to the fenced in dog park in between.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

Our backyard is fenced in, with lots of grass to run and play.

Where will my dog sleep?

If your dog is accustomed to sleeping in a crate, please feel free to bring that, or a bed of some sort if he is not typically locked up. Our dog will be locked in a crate, so as to avoid any all-nighters.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

We live in a quiet neighborhood in Alexandria with plenty of sidewalks and walking trails. Our fenced in backyard also provides a great place for the dogs to run and play!

A true mutt in every sense, but as lovable as they come! He was rescued from a kill-shelter in South Carolina, and has never looked back.

Jessica and Ben did a wonderful job of including our dog in their home. Dexter came home happy after lots of doggy play. We were able to travel worry free, knowing he was in very competent hands.
