Kristen and Patrick took wonderful care of my dog while I was away and were super flexible with drop off and pickup. He had a blast playing with their dog and they sent me daily picture updates as well. I (and my little guy) couldn’t be happier!

Kristen was perfect! Their golden retriever, Teddy, was an equally welcoming host for Mayia.

Kristen is the best! My pup had just the most wonderful time! On-time, flexible, and helpful—I felt like I left my pup with family!

We live in a pet-friendly apartment in Old Town Alexandria, and a typical day consists of some indoor playtime as well as several walks outside throughout the day.

When Kristen watches your pet

We live within walking distance of 3 dog parks parks, but if dog parks aren't a good fit, we would love to take walks along the water and in Old Town. On a nice weekend we like to take the pups on field trips to Theodore Roosevelt Island and Shirlington. We also don't mind a night in curled up with a good movie and a head on the lap for those more low key pups.
