“Andrew is amazing with our dogs! They are always so happy see him. He is patient and kind and a true dog lover. He is highly recommended!”
“Thank you so much!!!”
“Lego had a great time with Thy! We got a lot of photo updates and knew Lego was being well taken care of. He came back tired and ready for some rest after all the outdoor fun he had! Will definitely use Thy again.”
“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!”
Kruti and Aaron P.
“Kruti and Aaron were such awesome hosts! Comet eagerly pulled to their door, he was so happy to get there. I also had a later than expected return time one day of the conference, and I can’t say enough about the graciousness Kruti showed when I was very late picking up Comet.”
“I can't say enough positive things about Yulia. She takes wonderful care of my pup Cooper. She is very responsive and always sends photos. She is truly fantastic!!”
“Rafael Maldonado would be a great pet sitter as he has been such a wonderful and caring pet dad to his dog, Rocky, for the past 8 years. He is always thinking about his dog’s needs, ensuring Rocky eats high quality food, gets a good amount of exercise every day and that his dog also exercises his mind through game play. I too have a dog which I have entrusted in Rafael’s care. Levi is always happy and fulfilled whenever I come back. (Probably because Rafael just made him the best doggy dinner ever!) I am very picky about who I am able to leave Levi with and Rafael is someone I know I will not have to worry about Levi while I am away. Rafael is also great with many different types of people and personalities and goes out of his way to care for others in his community, especially the elderly who may be alone or need help. Overall, Rafael is a genuine and kind person who cares about all living things regardless of whether they have 2 or 4 legs. He would be the ideal candidate for Rover.”
Tia & Mario D.
“It was such a pleasure to have our fur baby, Milo, spend the day with Tia & family. Milo was relaxed from A to Z and Tia kept me updated as to how Milo was doing. Milo took his time saying goodbye during the pickup and was clearly happy to be spend the day with his new friends. We’ll be back for sure. Grateful!”
About: I have been taking care of dogs for pretty much my whole life. I grew up with a spunky boxer dog and now, currently, have my own 4 year old boxer mix named Eggplant. I work from home most of the week and have a flexible schedule, and don't leave home for long periods of time due to my own dog's schedule. I am frequently trusted to help watch my friends dogs in my home when they go on vacation, work trips, etc. I live in a large apartment in Shirlington right near the Four Mile Run Trail, Shirlington dog park, and Fort Barnard dog park. My dog, Eggplant, is high energy and loves to go for walks and play with other dogs. To ensure it's a good fit and that your dog will be comfortable, I would love to do a meet and greet prior to any boarding or day care days. I'm currently working mostly from home and have a very flexible work schedule, so I'll have plenty of time to play with the pups! I'm available for boarding on weekends, including Mondays and Fridays, and day care on Mondays and Fridays. I take my dog on several walks a day and would never let your dog off leash, or go to a dog park, without your permission. I have a very friendly and active dog to keep your pup company. Eggplant is crate trained but can also be trusted out of the crate, so I can easily leave them in or out of their crates - whatever your preference is! If you're comfortable with it, I would also love to take the dogs for adventures! Eggplant loves to go for car rides (where she is secured with a dog seat belt - which I would do for your dog as well) and hike!
“Bentley had a great stay with Katherine! He had a blast going on walks, having lots of playtime, and getting plenty of treats :) He was very worn out when he got home - the sign of a great time at day care! Thank you Katherine!”
“Mina was amazing with Miles! If your looking for a young puppy sitter she’s great. Look forward to booking with her again!”
“Jennifer did an amazing job watching our one year old Great Dane. It can be difficult finding someone to care for our Giant dog but she did a perfect job. She sent pictures, videos , and kept us updated without us even asking. Our dog gained a best friend, Moony, her sweet fun dog. At the end of the stay Picasso was exhausted and slept the rest of the day ! I know he was worn out from a fun filled day. Thanks again!”
“Such a great experience with her and JJ! Givenchy had the best two weeks of his life for sure! She's very attentive and sends plenty of videos and pictures.”
“Amy has been a wonderful dog sitter for my furry companion. Her genuine love for animals and responsible care make her the perfect choice. My dog always wags his tail with excitement when Amy comes over. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a caring and reliable pet sitter. She's simply the best!”
“My dog had a wonderful day in Tricia’s care! Tricia sent multiple photos and updates throughout the day. I look forward to having her watch my dog again.”
Kyla & Garry M.
“Kyla was great with my dog, Bee. This was her first time in doggie day care. She is a newly rescued dog and I wasn’t exactly sure how she would do. Kyla was patient and so understanding with her situation and quirks. I would highly recommend her!”
“Hannah is an amazing animal person. She's incredibly smart and organized. She's very attentive to the pets she cares for and will drop everything to make sure her pet gets whatever it needs at the moment. For instance, Hannah went to several veterinarians just to make sure her dog got the exact help and attention she needed. She researches and gets the proper diet and treats for her pets to thrive.”
“Liza was the best! Murphy is a high energy dog and Liza made sure he had several walks! He had the best time with Liza and Remy and was so excited to spend the day with the two of them. Liza was also very responsive and was sure to send pictures and videos throughout the day. I highly recommend her!”
“Ali is one of the most responsible and caring dog owners I know. She is at her best around her own dog at home, but She puts even more effort when dealing with other people’s dogs. She will not only take care of the furry friend’s basic living needs, but instead she will go out of her way to make the them as happy as they can be. 10 out of 10 would recommend this woman to take care of their pets.”
“Our dog is crazy and Sandra was amazing and patient with our dog. He has a lot of little fears of loud noises and a lot of insecurities of new surroundings and she was patient and helped him through every step. I can't recommend Sandra enough!! She also gave us regular updates to let us know how her was. Such a great experience!”
