Home Full-Time Caring for Your Dog!

Hi there! We're Saralyn and Sam, a married Rover team! We're avid pet lovers, and live in a beautiful dog-friendly neighborhood in Silver Spring with our three amazing pooches! When we're not snuggling with a pug or working from home, we enjoy walking with our dogs along the wooded trails throughout our neighborhood.

We strive to provide great rates and personalized attention for your furry friends! We will host your dog or cat at our ...

What Saralyn & Sam would like to know about your dog

Before your pet’s stay, here's what we would like to know about your furry loved one:

-Do they enjoy playing with other dogs? Our own pups love hosting guests and are very friendly with other dogs. At this time, we can only host dog-friendly dogs for boarding and daycare. We can board non-dog-loving cats, as we have a large, separated living space on the first floor of our home.

-What is their normal feeding/walking routine? We default to 1 long morning walk and 1 long evening walk with numerous potty breaks at least every 2 hours. We will gladly stick to your feeding/walking schedule to make your pet feel at home.

-Are they allowed on the furniture/bed? Our dogs rule the roost (and they know it!), so they're allowed on the couch and bed. If your pet isn't allowed on the furniture, we'll enforce that at our home and in yours.

-Do they have any allergies (food or otherwise)? Our pug, Wilber, has a protein allergy so we know keeping food/treats separate is important for him. If your dog has food allergies, we'll feed them separately to avoid cross-contamination.

-How does your dog do when you're away? We will give your pup lots of love and attention! If they have separation anxiety when they're away from you, please let us know so that we can be sure to keep them extra comfortable during their stay.
