Carissa was able to watch Stone for a couple hours for me on very short notice without a hassle - And it was a Saturday night! She sent me updates and Stone seemed very happy with his stay as was I. Thanks again! :)

Carissa is the dog mommy you want for your dog. She is reliable, responsible and active so you can be sure that your dog will get plenty of exercise and will be well taken care of when it's with her. She knows DC well and loves the city, its people and its furry friends.

I love dog adventures!

I grew up with dogs and I'm always borrowing my friends' dogs for hikes, camping, running, playing in the park, etc. I will treat your dog like a new friend, and make sure he/she is well cared for. My two (outdoor) cats are shy around dogs, but eventually they become accustomed to them - in the meantime, they can just hide outside (they have a cat door, in a window). I live two blocks away ...

Additional Skills

Senior Dog Experience
