We have used Carol and Eric multiple times in the past and love taking our dog to them. This past stay was for 9 days. While we were away we received a multitude of photos and videos along with updates. They are great at providing excellent care and plenty of belly rubs.

We all have Emma withdrawal when she leaves. We can't wait to see her again!

Carol & Eric were great! They took wonderful care of our sweet Cairo while we were out of town and were mindful of our care instructions. They sent us constant updates via text and pictures! Our boy had a great time at their home with Eva (and eventually Emma)! We would definitely use them in the future if needed.

Cairo is study an energetic, fun boy. He got along great with Emma and Eva!

Active, stay-at-home dog mom!

My husband and I are both natives to Northern Virginia; we both graduated from GMU. My professional training is in Health & Fitness, and we've both been athletes our whole lives. So, we are extremely active and love entertaining dogs.

We have walked and cared for our neighbors' dogs in the various places that we've lived over the past four years.
We rescued our mixed breed, female Eva in April 2015.

What Carol & Eric would like to know about your dog

We have no breed preference. Of course we want to know the basics about your dog: male/female, age, size, are they doggie socialized and get along with other dogs, are they spayed/neutered, and up-to-date on shots?
Do they have special needs?
Beyond that, what's your dog's personality? For example do they play or enjoy lots of naps?
What are their routines & sleep arrangements?
Is your pup comfortable in a crate?
Caring for pups is my full time commitment. It is our priority when doing dog boarding and doggie daycare that the pups have as much free roam and attention as possible. There are occassions when both my husband and I will be out of the house, and we do crate the pups during those times for safety and everyone's peace of mind. It will never exceed 3 hours though.
** We accept unneutered males and unspayed females, but not at the same time. **
