Carmen was amazing with our 1 year-old Bailey! Bailey stayed with Carmen for 5 days and bonded with her right away. We immediately knew that she would be in good hands. Carmen also went above and beyond when our pup had a bout of stomach upset, giving her bland foods (after checking in with us) and making sure she was comfortable. Carmen was excellent at communicating and sent us pictures every day. Highly recommended!!

Carmen was absolutely excellent. She took care of Apollo as promised and communicated daily with updates to ease our minds. We highly recommend Carmen. Apollo has found his new best friend!

Carmen took wonderful care of our pups while we were away. We have both a puppy and an older dog and both were very happy and well cared for! I loved her daily updates and cute pictures. She also stayed at our home and when we returned everything was as we left it. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing that she was taking good care of or pups and our home ...

Exercise and love for ALL dogs!

Hi! My name's Carmen and I am a UVA alumna living in Loudoun County (Sterling/Potomac Falls area) with a flexible schedule and never ending love for dogs. I teach English online from my home and tutor nearby so I am always close by. I've just recently returned from a two month trip working at an underfunded dog shelter and mobile veterinary clinic in Costa Rica; it was SUCH an amazing experience but immensely difficult ...

What Carmen would like to know about your dog

Before taking care of your pet, I would like to know their schedule, care needs, any quirks you think are important for me to know, and if they get along with other animals.
*Meet & Greet required for boarding to ensure your dog gets along with my baby, Pepper!

When Carmen watches your pet

During a stay with me, your dog will feel very at home! If they live an active lifestyle and enjoy exercise, we will take long walks along the Potomac River (directly behind my house) or go to Algonkian Park (about a mile away from my home). I also like to hike and would be happy to bring your dog along! If they prefer to chill out, we will cuddle up inside and enjoy spending time together. My dog, Pepper, likes to lay around as well so I am always happy to cuddle up while watching TV or reading a book.
