Ms. R'Kenia is a great dog sitter! Apollo loves going there and plays well with the other dogs, and he loves her backyard. She is great with Apollo and I always feel fine leaving Apollo with her. She has kept Apollo many times, it his home away from home. We Will continue to call on Ms. R'Kenia to keep our Apollo.

Professional Trainer and Sitter

I am a professional dog trainer (CPDT), certified with the certification council of professional dog trainers. I am a member of APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers).

I earned my veterinary technician degree in 2005 from NOVA community college in Northern VA and worked in the field for 5-6 years before becoming a trainer full time. In addition to training I offer boarding ...

What R'Kenia would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if the dog is kid and dog friendly, however I have had dogs who were not kid friendly or had mild to moderate aggression/fear aggression issues. My children understand the safety rules and there are very few dogs that I can not handle regardless of their possible behavioral issues.

When R'Kenia watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Walks can be anywhere from the local park to just around the neighborhood depending on the weather. Dogs are NEVER placed out unsupervised.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I prefer dogs to sleep crated at least for the first visit. This is for safety of not only my home but for your pet and other pets who may the boarding. I do have a few dogs who I know well enough to allow to sleep wherever they choose.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home so dogs are never crated Dogs in my care are not left alone for more than 3 hours at a time for any reason. So there is LOTS of cuddle times, lots of play times and frequent walks or trips to the dog park.
