Baily had a great stay with Rodrigo. After our initial meet and greet I felt that Rodrigo was a very caring person who would take good care of our dog. Baily came home very happy. We will definitely use him again.

We were SO fortunate to find Rodrigo through! It was clear from our initial meeting that he understood and loved dogs, and that Jake would enjoy every minute he spent with this family. Rodrigo was careful, in our first discussion, to understand Jake's habits and preferences, as well as our dog's ability to get along with the two resident pups. His home and yard are lovely and comfortable, and we particularly appreciated his ...

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 :-)
