I really enjoyed our experience with Rodrigo and Monica. It was easy to see that they truly love dogs! With a super shy pup we were nervous about leaving him, but all went very well. We were always able to get ahold of Rodrigo while we were away and he was good about sending photos. I’d definitely recommend him and look forward to booking him again soon!

Indy had such a great time with Rodrigo and Monica! They were very patient in helping him get over his shyness and I know that they have a lot of experience and knowledge about dogs. Thank you so much for indy’s mini-vacation!

Rodrigo was so kind and patient with Sherlock, who I suspect is a more active, younger dog than he usually boards.

Doggie Surf in Bethesda, MD

My wife and I have nurtured, loved and lived with dogs since we were kids. Monica works for the World Wildlife Fund, an NGO tasked with the preservation of animal species, and I work for a tech company from home. Hence, our four-legged buddies are almost always supervised and accompanied.

We do not have real children of our own, so our two wonderful furry fellows ARE our children. Both are rescue-dogs, as we believe that ...

What Rodrigo would like to know about your dog

We require a brief meet and greet before accepting bookings with all new guests (repeat guests can skip this step). During our short get-together, I will ask several questions about your pup(s). The purpose is not to be intrusive, but rather, to retain your furry-friend's habits as unchanged as possible during his/her vacation with us.

Here are some questions:

1. What are his/her eating and sleeping habits?
2. How frequently will our guest(s) need potty breaks?
3. Does s/he like to travel by car?
4. Will s/he need for us to supply meal bowls, crates, cushions/beds, toys or anything else not provided by parents?
5. Doe s/he have any special needs or intricacies I should know about (separation anxiety tendencies, display of aggression behavior, depression symptoms, etc.)?

That's it! It should be fun :-)
