You'll love Ava almost as much as your pup will! She's a fun and funny freespirit who knows her way around critters. She ran a puppy playgroup for many years in Alexandria, entrusted by many with keys to their place (including me!), providing quality time for our best buddies to get attention, exercise, and socialization during the day. Highly recommended!

Ava is one of the very few people that I would leave my beloved dog with. She's loving, brilliant, caring & completely responsible. She totally loves dogs & wants your dog to be treated like one of her own. Who are spoiled & happy, by the way. She's also a genuinely awesome individual. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Dog lover since birth!

I have been caring for dogs for over 20 years, and had a business running my own daily poochie playgroup and doing home boarding in the Old Town area of Alexandria, VA since 1998. I moved to the Charlottesville area and am missing all my furry friends. Now I am available for walks, home visits and house sitting in your home with my dog Badger<3
I love taking walks and Badger is a great doggie ...
