Doggy Day Care in Ballston-Virginia Square, Arlington, VA
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
About: Aside from caring for my own dogs as well as neighbors’ pets my whole life, I was a periodic live-in sitter for an elderly pug that required extra care, including medications and eye drops. I also fostered 2 chiweenie puppies for a few months until they were able to find a forever home. I work from home on my own schedule, and would love some company. Since I don’t have set hours, I have time for several walks throughout the day and into the evening. I have a spacious 1 bedroom apartment nearby several parks. I’m happy to stay in with a sleepy dog or go on long walks with an energetic pup, as I am an active person.
“Arial takes care of my sweet Perla when I travel. She takes such a good care and gives her love and keep us update of how she is doing. Perla is always excited to see her!”
Jordan & Paul F.
“Jordan and Paul were lovely hosts. They both greeted me and my dog took to them quickly. On the second day she almost jumped out of the car to greet them. The property is nice and the neighborhood is dog friendly with a cool dog park nearby. I would book again and trust them with my pup.”
“Katerine is a wonderful and warm person. Milo took an instant liking to her. She was kind enough to agree to pick and drop off Milo. She gave me regular updates during the day and looks like Milo enjoyed his day! Will certainly ask for her services again. Thank you Katerine!!”
“Leslie is a gem. She takes really great care of my yorkie Camila. She treats hee as if she's her own. I recently became ill and she didn't think twice when I asked her to keep her overnight.”
“We were lucky to find Anne. Rango had a wonderful time with her. Anne set-up a preview chat to meet Rango and she was very responsive in communicating with us. We felt comfortable having him stay with her and would use her again when we are back visiting our son in D.C.”
“Madison and her dog Stevie were perfect sitters for Pompy. He had the best day playing with Stevie and being a couch potato when he needed a break. Madison was so conscientious. She had me bring Pompy by the day before to make sure he got along with Stevie. She was very communicative and sent pictures through out the day. Pompy wants to go back as soon as possible!”
“Guy and his family were incredible with our dog! They immediately welcomed her like family and took the time to ensure that she was comfortable with their own dog, who is a sweetheart. Guy sent us plenty of photos throughout the day, making us feel even more comfortable that she was being well cared for. We will definitely be booking again!”
About: I used to have a black lab retriever, that I had for over a decade, she's a relatively big dog, so I'm familiar with caring for and watching larger animals. For the past four years I have been paid to watch and care for other pets other than my own, so I am familiar with watching other people's pets. My black lab was untrained for years, so if your pet happens to not be trained then that is okay because I am completely comfortable with an untrained animal. Since I do have a dog, I would not be able to host cats, but I do not mind watching them at your home. A little bit more about myself, I graduated from Penn State in 2018, with a degree in Political Science, and a minor in History, I also have a masters in Legal Studies from American University. I'm originally from upstate NY and moved to the DMV a little over a year ago. I work remote ask I’m able to give my dog as well as yours, the love and attention they deserve. I make sure to take them out long enough to ensure they receive daily exercise. I’m very on top of watching your dog and keeping a safe environment for all animals. I keep all things that could potentially be harmful out of reach.
“We dropped our pup off for the day while visiting and everything was great. Very dog centered day care! She came home exhausted but intact and had a great time. Excellent communication and picture.”
“I have left my anxiety-ridden toy poodle mix, Garcon, with Marissa 4 times and I am so grateful that I did! My dog is very difficult to walk - he's afraid of everything, cannot be pulled, doesn't know how to go up and down stairs, you name it - but Marissa is so patient with him! She has so much kindness and compassion for my little guy, I feel so comfortable leaving him in her care. She's a real natural, and Garcon absolutely loves her. And for an anxious dog with separation issues, that's huge! She'll be a great addition to any dog family.”
Bradley & Katie S.
“Brad has taken care of my dog many times and does a great job, she absolutely LOVES him. He plays with her in the yard, takes her for walks, and gives her lots of treats! I can always relax when I leave her with him because I know she will be safe and enjoy her time with him! I would recommend him to anyone and will continue to book with him.”
“My puppy Callie had so much fun with Morgan and Mochi, and was crying as we drove off. Morgan took amazing care of Callie and we will definitely be back!”
“Zixuan took great care of my little dog Rainbow. She sent videos and photo updates. I will definitely book her again.”
“Claire took care of my 11 week old puppy over the course of several days while I was at work. She sent me picture’s constantly and let me know all the puppy updates I needed. My dog Penny was always excited to see her - I highly recommend Claire!”
“Emily loves each and every pet like her own. She is responsible and a nurturing pet sitter. She’s great at following a schedule and attending to the needs of each pet. She has access to a car and can drive the pet in need of emergency. I would trust her with my pet any day and would recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy and loving pet sitter.”
