Casey’s first stay with Rodrigo and it was great. We got updates and a picture in the evening and picked up a happy pup the next day. Great communication before and during stay. Highly recommend, we’ll definitely be using Rodrigo’s services again!

This was our first time using Rover and I wasn't sure what to expect -- but our dog's stay with Rodrigo was great! Our dog is shy, and a little weird, but that didn't faze Rodrigo at all. Honestly, it felt as if we were leaving our dog in the care of a friend. I'm so happy we found him. Thanks, Rodrigo!!

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!

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 wonderful furry fellow IS our child. He was rescued, as we believe that there ...

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. Does 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 :-)

When Rodrigo watches your pet

Our neighborhood is a pet-friendly one. Across the street from our house, weather permitting, we will play in the county park with two baseball fields, always supervised.

In addition, and with your consent, we frequently go to a mountain cabin in Luray, VA, as well as to our sailboat in a wonderful marina located in Edgewater, MD. These excursions will stimulate your dog's mind and promote healthy exercise.

The rest of the time, I will keep and eye on them and cuddle as much as possible :-)
