Oscar loves staying with Stephen and Derick! They took great care of him while I was out of the country for two weeks and it's always a huge relief to know that he's in good hands when I'm gone. Thanks again, guys!

Stephen and Derick took great care of my dog during the holiday season. They were conscientious and responsive, making the whole boarding experience stress-free. Would definitely recommend.

Fido's next BFF / Discount for feds

IMPT: Due to the recent government shutdown, if you are a Federal employee or contractor not receiving pay please let us know when you reach out so we can apply a discount to show our support.

We are two dog lovers in the Southwest DC/Wharf neighborhood who enjoy quality time with man's best friend! Derick and I have very flexible work schedules-- Stephen even fully works from home, allowing for a lot of flexibility ...

What Stephen would like to know about your dog

We are very open but prefer to do a meet and greet for a first time stay that is longer than 2 nights to ensure that it is a good fit. Unfortunately, dogs that have severe separation anxiety or are very noisy won't be a good fit since we don't live in a house.

When Stephen watches your pet

Expect your dog to be beat when they return home! We are huge fans of long walks, exploring dog parks, and even hiking on occasion/ability of the dog.
