Carmen was on top of taking care of both Henry our cat and our dog Brody while we were out of country. She handled my slightly erratic requests without pause and I felt like they were in good hands while I was gone.

We have used many pet sitters in the past from the Rover website, but have not had much luck finding a permanent sitter for our timid, one year old mini dachshund. That is, until Carmen came along! We loved her interaction with Bentley from the beginning to the detailed messages letting us know about his day. We knew he was in good hands and could enjoy our vacation. Thank you, Carmen for being the perfect ...

I was very disappointed that Carmen cancelled twice leaving little time to find another walker Or make other arrangements. She also showed up a full hour after the time she agreed to walk my dog. I would not recommend Carmen.

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.
