Our experience with Sophia was great! We left town for two weeks and she sent us pictures and videos of our dog nearly every day. She responded quickly to all our questions and requests. We could tell that she took care of him like he was one of her own. Highly recommended!

Sophia was very responsive to all of my questions. She has a nice set-up with a large fence-in yard. My dog sometimes marks when in homes with other dogs, but she was still able to accommodate him. We would definitely consider using her services again.

Atticus was happy upon arrival and when he got picked up! We love having him at Sophia's when we go out of town.

Pawtel in Gaithersburg

I'm an animal lover and I grew up with dogs. I raised my two Shih Tzus Coco and Simsim since they were 2 months old, they are now 9 and 8 years old. My dogs are very friendly with other dogs, having other dogs come and stay in the house is like a play date for them.

I have a big house and a big back yard for the dogs to run around and play ...

What Sophia would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the dog's personality, daily routine, eating habits and behaviors and medical condition if there is any. I like to host small and middle size dogs, one is my dogs had a very bad experience with a big dog when she was a puppy, she's very nervous around big dogs ever since.
