Doggy Day Care in Highland Park-Overlee Knolls, Arlington, VA
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
“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.”
“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!”
“Nimbus had a great time at daycare with Jen and Moony! Jen kept us updated on his progress throughout the day and sent lots of pictures. Nimbus is tuckered our after his long day of playing, and Jen even went the extra mile by giving Nimbus a little bath before he came home. Thank you Jen, and we’ll definitely be booking again!”
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.
Leonard & Kathryn J.
“Over the past few weeks, Leonard and his family have taken great care of our dog, Cole. It's clear that Cole loves his time with Leonard's family because he is always happy to see Leonard and is eager to run inside when we drop him off. In addition, Leonard is extremely responsive and very accommodating of variations in drop-off and pick-up times. We would highly recommend Leonard and his family and will continue to entrust Cole to their care.”
“Sandra was awesome, and helped cover a last minute appointment when another sitter had a conflict. She gave our guy all the attention and company he needed, and despite his anxiety he seemed to settle in well. Would definitely recommend.”
“I’m always skeptical when it comes to a new dog sitter for Pepper and his sister Lucy. Megan is a class act! Thank you for taking care of my kids!”
“Carina is wonderful with my sweet Mia. My pup looks forward to visiting and playing with her daycare friends.”
“Annie was absolutely delightful! She sent several photos during the day and took Major for a walk despite it being a rainy day! I really appreciate her communication and flexibility with me running a wee bit late. Annie's attentiveness to Major's mood and water consumption says a lot about how much she cares for the dogs she watches =)”
“Amber was great! Even though it took Queenie a while to warm up, Amber was so patient and did a great job watching her. We would definitely book her again!”
“WOW ? I can’t say enough how great Yasmin was with my sisi my baby didn’t wanna leave her or her puppy like she knows them forever Yasmin is a great sister & I would recommend her to everyone thank you again for taking such good care about my baby will definitely come back”
“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!”
“Emily took great care of my labradoodle Harry! She and her dog Buck were very welcoming.”
“We have been using Cera as our go-to pet sitter for a couple of months now, and we would recommend you do too. Her attention to details allows my husband and I to have some piece of mind when we go out for the weekend. We know that our fur babies are being well taken care of as she follows our instructions to a tee. She is polite and an excellent communicator, we always know know we can get the updates we need in a timely manner. Above all, Cheba and Bear absolutely adore her! We’re sure she’s feeding them something because they almost seem to want to leave with her when we get home! All jokes aside, Cera is an excellent pet sitter and we can’t imagine using anyone else.”
About: I grew up with three dogs that I loved taking care of. I’ve had my own dog that I raised from 9 weeks old for over a year and would love to watch your dog while you’re away! Daisy is incredibly friendly and submissive and would be a built in friend and playmate for yours! I am a fully remote worker, other than going into the office with flexible hours on Thursdays. I take Daisy on 4-5 30 minute walks a day and take lots of breaks from working to play with her. I live near several parks for outdoor dog activities as well. I do not have a yard so tend to take dogs on several walks so they have lots of outdoor stimulation as well as parks. I have a large crate if you prefer your dog is crate trained as well.
“Crystal was great when we were visiting from out town and needed a pet sitter last minute. I messaged her around 10:30 PM the night before we needed her, and she promptly responded. We dropped off our 10 year old dog the following morning. She sent us regular pictures throughout the day so we knew our dog was doing great. Definitely recommend!!! She was really great.”
“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.”
“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!!”
“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!”
About: We live in a single-family home in a neighborhood near East Falls Church, with plenty of dog parks and walking/running trails nearby. We have a fully-fenced yard for playtime, and will make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise and attention. My husband and I understand the deep bond between man and his best friend, and we will strive to fulfill that void for your dog while you are away. We are happy to send photos and/or videos of your dog at play so you can check in on their vacation while you are busy. We have been hosting dogs in our home for over ten years, and have experience with a wide variety of breeds, ages, and various special needs. We recently reactivated our profile after taking time off to have two small (human) children. For the safety and comfort of your pet, we kindly request a meet-and-greet for all new clients to ensure they are comfortable with sharing a house with small kids, ages 7 and 5. I am a stay-at-home parent, so your dog will have as much attention as they need. I am happy to provide walks and playtime throughout the day. We have a fully-fenced yard for your dog to explore. We will always keep an eye on them when they are outside. We keep all house doors locked when dogs are inside.
