Kate and Chuck were great to watch my two dogs. They both get anxious in new places so they had no problem coming to my place to stay for the weekend. She sent updates throughout the stay and made it a lot easier to relax. I will be asking if they are available again for my next trip.

Kate and Chuck were great. They were super accommodating to my early departure and were more than happy to have me drop off Chaplin at 6am! I felt so bad, but they were happy to help and they took great care of my pup. They updated me of how he was doing so I felt comfortable knowing Chaplin was having a good time while I had to travel out of town.

Active, dog-loving couple

We are a young professional couple planning to get our own dog soon. We live in an area of Arlington that is easily accessible to DC, Fairfax & Falls Church. We are excited to start caring for dogs in our home as we move towards having our first dog together. Our apartment complex is VERY dog-friendly, and there are informal yappy hours in our courtyard with 3-5 sociable dogs most nights.

We both work full-time, ...

What Kate would like to know about your dog

We love dogs of all kinds, but have a special place in our hearts for terriers, border collies, poodle mixes (and mixes generally), slightly scruffy/curly-haired dogs, anyone with spots, and energetic mid-sized dogs like Vislas and pointers.

Please let us know if your dog has any special needs, unique dietary concerns (unlike chocolate, which we know no dogs should eat), or aversions to cats, children, or certain other types of dogs to help us steer clear of any threats.

When Kate watches your pet

We are very involved dog-sitters. We will take the dogs who stay with us out for walks and playtime with neighbors as often as possible (about every 4 hours on workdays, but more often on weekends). Dogs who can walk about 1 mile or who travel well in the car can try out one of the nearby dog parks with us too, complete with a cooling fountain.

Although we don't allow dogs on our furniture, other than that, we will do the best to follow the owners' parenting style while you're away. If you crate, we will; if you give treats as positive reinforcement, we will, etc.
