Doggy Day Care in Riverwood, Arlington, VA
Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
“We dropped our pup off for the day while visiting and everything was great. Very dog centered day care! She came home exhausted but intact and had a great time. Excellent communication and picture.”
“Guy and his family were incredible with our dog! They immediately welcomed her like family and took the time to ensure that she was comfortable with their own dog, who is a sweetheart. Guy sent us plenty of photos throughout the day, making us feel even more comfortable that she was being well cared for. We will definitely be booking again!”
About: Aside from caring for my own dogs as well as neighbors’ pets my whole life, I was a periodic live-in sitter for an elderly pug that required extra care, including medications and eye drops. I also fostered 2 chiweenie puppies for a few months until they were able to find a forever home. I work from home on my own schedule, and would love some company. Since I don’t have set hours, I have time for several walks throughout the day and into the evening. I have a spacious 1 bedroom apartment nearby several parks. I’m happy to stay in with a sleepy dog or go on long walks with an energetic pup, as I am an active person.
Leonard & Kathryn J.
“Over the past few weeks, Leonard and his family have taken great care of our dog, Cole. It's clear that Cole loves his time with Leonard's family because he is always happy to see Leonard and is eager to run inside when we drop him off. In addition, Leonard is extremely responsive and very accommodating of variations in drop-off and pick-up times. We would highly recommend Leonard and his family and will continue to entrust Cole to their care.”

“Nimbus had a great time at daycare with Jen and Moony! Jen kept us updated on his progress throughout the day and sent lots of pictures.

“Sandra was awesome, and helped cover a last minute appointment when another sitter had a conflict. She gave our guy all the attention and company he needed, and despite his anxiety he seemed to settle in well. Would definitely recommend.”
“Katelyn is phenomenal! She has a big heart for dogs, and it shows. She's incredibly warm and welcoming from the get go, easy to talk to, and was always asking me how she could make my dog, Charlie, more comfortable. Totally felt at ease while on vacation. Doesn't hurt she owns a dog too and her apartment is super clean. Highly recommend!”
