Vanessa is a great pup-sitter! She watched over my sweet, energetic, and sometimes temperamental rescue for five days.

When Vanessa watches your pet

Of course depending on what the dog can physically do, I would take them to rock creek park if I have the time. I would also take them to any dog parks in the area if they like to socialize with other pups.
