Carol and Eric are truly a godsend! My fiancé and I are SO pleased with and thankful for the care Carol and Eric showed our furbabies while we were out of town. They sent plenty of pictures and videos, left a detailed visit summary, and loved on our furbabies as if they were their own.

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!

In 2014, we started caring for our neighbors' dogs in the various places that we've lived. We rescued our mixed breed, female Eva in April 2015 at 9 months old. We've enjoyed caring for ...

What Carol & Eric would like to know about your dog

We have no breed preference. Beyond the basics, we'd like to know: Are they...
Doggie socialized and generally get along with other dogs?
Up-to-date on shots?
Do they have special needs?
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.
