Carla took world-class care of our dog Virgil while he's been recovering from a back injury. I will definitely try and have our pup stay with her in the future! She sent us a great update at the end of the day with pictures of how Virgil spent his time there.

Carla went above and beyond! She spoiled Emma just the way she likes and gave her the best care we could hope for. She put us at ease with daily updates that were very detailed and cute. We could not have asked for anything more. It is obvious she loves dogs and we felt very comfortable leaving Emma in her care.

Who could be better than Carla!? No one. We are so lucky to have found her.
Her notes are my favorite part of the day, besides knowing that my dog is in extremely capable hands ; ). I know that she's giving extra love, attention, and care. It helps so much not having to worry about this puppy parenthood during the busy day.

I pup sat through Rover when I lived in Atlanta and now that I work from home in DC, I truly miss the rotating cast of dog characters that came through our home. They're ...

What Carla would like to know about your dog

I take dogs of all breeds, shapes, sizes, and characters. The only thing I ask is that you please don't book a dog who is knowingly destructive to property or aggressive towards people he / she doesn't know.
