Your pup is our pup! LOVE!Bethesda, MD

Ming and the CARE Family!

Shortly after being born (about 2 hours or so) I knew I loved animals. I adopted my first dog who taught me so much about myself and how to be a better person and help me understand dogs. She was believed to be non-intelligent dog, however, she could learn any trick I could think of in less than 5 minutes. She passed in 2009. After she passed I vowed to myself that I would do what I could to help and give a voice to animals. Since then I have been working, supporting, and helping animals and organizations to better the lives of animals.

My experience includes over 25 years of animal care along with dog training, rehabilitating domesticated/feral/wild dogs, dogs with behavioral problems, vet experience and experience with various other animals including cats, ferrets, hedgehogs, turtles, rabbits, chinchillas, and birds.

I currently work and volunteer for Capital Animal Rescue and Environmental Foundation, Taiwan SPCA as well as other organizations. I also have experience at a vet clinic assisting with hundreds of surgeries and medical treatment for dogs and cats. In just one typical day at the clinic, I would assist with surgeries and treatments on average for 40 dogs and cats. I gained a wealth of experience through volunteering with the vet which I thoroughly enjoyed.

About my family: We ALL love dogs!!!! If my family and friends didn't, they wouldn't live with me! Everyone loves to help out and cuddle the pups. We work as a team and have a well organized system in watching the pups. We strive to provide the greatest cuddling service possible. There are many of us that live in the house and work together to provide our furry guest the best vacation stay possible. We love when the pups are happy and that makes us even happier. We live in bliss with all the pups! Come meet the family!

I offer a spacious open home for all furry guest. The home is the purfect home for your pet. There is almost always someone around to hang out, play and relax with your pet. Training available upon request (additional). All cute pups (they are all cute pups to me no matter what their age, breed or looks are!) will get lots of love, exercise, and playtime. All pups will also be spoiled if allowed and if you don't allow it, It'll just be between me and your pup :-) . I will only crate your pet upon request. I prefer the animals to have the run of the house and to be completely relaxed as if they were at home.

Important notes:

1. All dogs have to be cute! (in my book, all animals are cute so that's an easy one!) We take all kinds of pups!

2. Bring food, treats, collar, leash, DOG TAGS and favorite toys.

3. Relax the dog prior to arrival by taking him/her on a long long long walk/run. Make sure they’ve pee'd and pooped already.

4. Please mention any quirks your pup may have, IE: marking, biting, barking, aggression, doesn't like car rides, terrified, ect... Don't worry because I will still take them in if I can. I just need to know what I'm working with and how to help them.

5. Preferred CHECK IN/OUT TIME before 9am and after 7pm. If we need to make other arrangements just let me know.

6. Make sure your dog is clean and groomed. No super stinky pups. I like to cuddle them (if they like of course) and I like to stay clean too. Please brush/furminate them if you can. Much appreciated.

Please note that I take care of many dogs throughout the stay. I believe dogs and animals should live and socialize in a safe pack in order to keep them healthy and happy. You can see in my pictures how all the dogs, foster animals, cats, and chinchillas, and birds all get along with each other.

Holiday rates in affect during the weeks of any Federal Holidays and June Through August.

Shuli's 5-Star Bethesda ResortBETHESDA, MD

I have loved and cared for dogs for over 30 years.

We have a large house, and now that our kids are off to college, there is a lot of room.

I only take small to medium size dogs. Maximum of 40 lbs.

Our own dog, Max, who is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, has been with us for 13 years, and has recently passed away. Our home is suited for smaller dogs, as we allow them to play wherever they like.

They are welcome to sleep wherever they are comfortable from our bedroom, to the sunroom to the basement. They are greeted promptly and warmly in the morning with whatever routine they may have.

While we understand that an accident may happen, we only host dogs who are house trained.

We have a very quiet neighborhood not far from Maplewood Park, and I will walk your dog 3-4 times a day.

Our vet, is a 3 minute walk from our house (just in case)

IMPORTANT:

The first step is to send me a message via Rover about your dog(s), breed, size, age, and the dates of your planned reservation. I'm known for responding quickly. We can talk by phone first, or via Rover messaging, to set up a Meet and Greet if we think we're a good match. After the Meet and Greet, we'll set up your reservation if all goes well.

I have been caring for dogs for over 30 years, and love every dog dearly.

I treat all of our guest dogs the same way I treat Max, with love and care.

I look forward to caring for your dog!

Policy for weekend or one or two night stays:

If your dog arrives early in the morning for drop off and leaves late in the day/evening for pick up, there will be a $25 day charge added as a custom quote. This policy is only for the very short stays and will not effect stays longer than three or more days.

Thank you for understanding.

Please note that I REQUIRE a meet-n-greet for any first-time guest PRIOR to approving any stays.

About my yard

Our backyard is not fenced. We have 2 decks that are fenced, and I take the dogs to the nearby park.

Please allow us the opportunity to care for your fur baby, he/she will be in great hands. We are sure to send the fur kids home happy and tired!

Flexible, Professional Pet LoverTyson's Corner, VA

I am a lifetime pet owner and would love to take care of your pet while you're away. I've taken care of cats, dogs, lizards, fish, and I'm comfortable with just about any critter. I understand that pets are members of the family and that it makes many pets feel more comfortable to be cared for in their own homes, and I'm willing to travel in the DC metro area to take care of your pet. I live in Arlington with my dog, Patty the Puggle. My service range spans the DC metro area and I am usually available for holidays.

I have experience caring for dogs and cats of all sizes and energy levels, as well as special needs and senior animals. I have adopted every dog I have ever had, many with unique health or behavioral conditions, and several of my pets over the years have taken regular oral medication. I'm very understanding of each animal's differences and needs and can accommodate accordingly. I am happy to discuss your pet's needs and habits in more detail.

When I take care of your pets, you can be sure that I will treat them like family. Whether your dog is used to long walks, short potty breaks or afternoons in the dog park, my goal is to make sure they're happy and healthy while you're away.

I am also happy to care for other pets if you happen to have non-canine companions. Note that for cats, the rate is $20 per visit (non-holidays) with an additional $5 charge per additional cat. Rates for additional dogs are listed on the rate summary. Rates for other pets can be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

Contact me for more information or to set up a time to chat about your pets' needs.

First-time clients are also eligible for a discount on their first stay. Contact me for details!

Other info about me: my mom is a professional rally/agility trainer and one of my dogs has served as a therapy dog.

Paw Paradise with Large Fenced YardBethesda, MD

Past experiences that I have had taking care of pets have simply only been with my neighbors pit bull that had an aggressive edge but being around scotty which was his name gave me the knowledge and experience to learn how to create a friendly relationship with a dog that was aggressively playful and aggressive with other dogs. I am different from other pet sitters because I absolutely love dogs I had an english bull dog for 11 years before she passed away due to old age. I am the type of guy who comes up to you on walks and wants to pet your dog I am friendly and outgoing and will take care of your dog as if they were my dog. Thank you for your interest in me and if you have any further questions do not hesitate to ask.

Passionate about animalssilver spring, MD

I am a full time pet carer who is extremely driven and passionate about animals. I have about five years of experience hosting and providing walks to pups of all sizes! I am extremely invested in making sure that you and especially your pup will feel comfortable in my home environment. My mother,

Maritza, also lives in my home and plays a huge role in helping care for the pups that visit our home! She works in home full time, this helps ensure that the pups are cared for 24/7 incase i have to leave our home for any reason.

We live in a three story home in a quiet neighborhood in silver spring. Our home is spacious and cozy. It offers a great deal of space for your pup to roam around. We are flexible with allowing pets on furniture and beds as well!

As stated previously, we are all about ensuring that your pet feels comfortable in our home. Part of this includes running on any schedules or rules you would like for us to uphold! Please let me know what works best for you and your pup and we will do our very best to accommodate :)

we do also have a small Boston Terrier and a cat in the home. they are both dog friendly. Laila, my pup loves playing with other dogs but she also knows when to relax and give pups their space. My cat, Simba, likes to roam around the upper floor of my home but does not interact with the dogs very much.

Please feel free to send me a message to gain some more insight on who we are or on our pet care services!

Backyard Farm BlissBeallsville, MD

**During the Covid 19 pandemic, there will be no penalties for last-minute cancellations. We will remain flexible as the situation evolves.**

We are a family that has lifetimes of dog experience. From fosters to having our own spoiled-rotten pooches, we adore being around pups. As a stay-at-home mom to two boys and my other furry babies, your pup will have around-the-clock care; as many walks as he/she would like; access to two fenced yards; plenty of attention; supervised play (if your dog is interested) with the even-tempered, very dog-friendly Masondog; and meticulous care based on your instruction. My husband and I are no stranger to dogs that have behavior problems. Anything besides aggression towards children, we can do our best to accommodate. Our children are used to being around all animals and have excellent manners and smarts, treating animals with the upmost respect.

Our furniture is as dog-friendly as we are!

We have a small farm with two fenced yards where more playful pups can run and wrestle to their hearts’ content in the back while calmer dogs who want to avoid the fray can sniff around, nap in the sun in the front yard. Dogs are welcome to come and go from the house as they please, aren’t left outside if they don’t care to be.

I'm sure your pup would love the country vacay and we'd love to have him/her visit!

About this sitter:

Because I am a stay/work-at-home mom, I have the luxury of offering around-the-clock care and assure you that your pup will be treated like a member of the family.

I'm originally from The midwest but grew up in NC and VA. I'm a George Mason grad, have been in the DC area for 15+ years, and in the Ag Reserve for 6+. I am a lifelong animal lover, owner, and advocate and love nothing more than to spend my days caring for and playing with them.

Why I love dog sitting

I was born into a family that loved all animals (though, as my family would attest, I was "next level." By the time I was 9, I was volunteering at the local SPCA, spending most of my summer vacation walking dogs through the lunch yards of local plants and factories trying to get even the toughest cases adopted, taking home orphan kittens and puppies to bottle-feed to give them their only chance at survival. I volunteered from that summer into college as we moved from Indiana to North Carolina to Virginia. Once I was out of school and settled, I began fostering. We adopted 3 of those fosters and still volunteer and advocate for local rescues.

Meet my pets

2 dog-friendly cats but they have access to a dog-proof laundry room and know to keep themselves scarce when there are less cat-friendly dog guests.

We also have a backyard hobby farm (on the other side of a reinforced fence :-) that include goats, sheep, donkeys, chickens, and ducks.

I am well-versed in topical, oral, nasal, and injected medication and have had pet first aid training.

WARNING: Excessive Dog Lovers here!Silver Spring, MD

So you have to go out of town, eh? And (insert your fur baby’s name here) can’t tag along... *The Horror!* The good news is... We are those pet parents that dread having to leave our pups- so we TOTALLY GET IT! Don't leave your dog in an overcrowded kennel or "doggy daycare"! Leave your family member in the hands (and hearts) of loving animal enthusiasts at the DMV Puppy Palace! We have a fully fenced yard for ample outdoor playtime, and plenty of space in our home for your fur baby to make our home their second home! Dogs become part of us and our family, so rest assured knowing they are being treated like the crème de la crème pups that they are!

So... Whats the deal with this Josh guy?!

Why, Hello! I am a animal lover that treats others pets as if they were my own. If I was to leave my dogs in the hands of someone, I would want to make sure they are well taken care of, and that is exactly what I have to offer you! I have grown up around dogs all my life, and love to treat my pups to nice walks, days at the dog parks, TONS of cuddles and kisses and much more! Your animals will get the same luxurious treatment that I have given my own animals. I will "adopt" them and take care of them so you will have NOTHING to worry about. I enjoy photography and can’t wait to capture gorgeous memorable portraits of your furry family member!

Wait, who is this Andres guy?!

Hey there! I, like Josh have grown up around dogs my whole life. I also volunteered at the Humane Society in Miami, and got extensive experience in dealing with many different types of dogs and situations. Working in the shelter gave me a lot of compassion, love and a heart for all types of animals. My dogs are truly my best friends and I love that no matter what my day may look like, they are always happy dogs that have nothing but love for me. I look forward to taking care of your beautiful pups for you!
