“Simon took great care of our dog Cactus, and she came home tired and happy. He is very kind and easy to communicate with. Cactus eagerly awaits her next visit!”
“Dolce had a great day at Shane’s. He got tons of playtime and came home a tired and happy pup. Communication and updates were fantastic. We look forward to our next visit!”
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.
“We were lucky to find Anne. Rango had a wonderful time with her. Anne set-up a preview chat to meet Rango and she was very responsive in communicating with us. We felt comfortable having him stay with her and would use her again when we are back visiting our son in D.C.”
“Leslie takes great care of my baby. I feel safe knowing that she is in good hands. Camila enjoys her time with Leslie. Leslie also keeps me informed throughout the day sends pictures. I would definitely recommend her.”
“Nimbus always gets excited for daycare with Jennifer and Moony! This morning his tail was wagging from the second we pulled into their neighborhood, and he dragged me all the way to their house. This is such a testament to what a great Dogsitter she is!! Thanks again :)”
Jordan & Paul F.
“Jordan and Paul were lovely hosts. They both greeted me and my dog took to them quickly. On the second day she almost jumped out of the car to greet them. The property is nice and the neighborhood is dog friendly with a cool dog park nearby. I would book again and trust them with my pup.”
“Thy was fantastic with our dog, Honey! She was great with providing updates throughout the day, putting our minds at ease. Honey had a super fun day with Thy and we know she will be excited to go back! :)”
“Brittany watched my puppy Callie for the day while I was working from my office. She was phenomenal at communicating, sending me photos and updates on what Callie was doing. Before the visit, she asked all the right questions to know more about Callie’s behavior. Brittany and Eli were amazing hosts to Callie. I couldn’t have been happier with this experience and will definitely be booking with Brittany again!”
About: I used to have a black lab retriever, that I had for over a decade, she's a relatively big dog, so I'm familiar with caring for and watching larger animals. For the past four years I have been paid to watch and care for other pets other than my own, so I am familiar with watching other people's pets. My black lab was untrained for years, so if your pet happens to not be trained then that is okay because I am completely comfortable with an untrained animal. Since I do have a dog, I would not be able to host cats, but I do not mind watching them at your home. A little bit more about myself, I graduated from Penn State in 2018, with a degree in Political Science, and a minor in History, I also have a masters in Legal Studies from American University. I'm originally from upstate NY and moved to the DMV a little over a year ago. I work remote ask I’m able to give my dog as well as yours, the love and attention they deserve. I make sure to take them out long enough to ensure they receive daily exercise. I’m very on top of watching your dog and keeping a safe environment for all animals. I keep all things that could potentially be harmful out of reach.
“Rana was extremely kind, communicative, and understanding! Emi did great even though it was her first stay and she has separation anxiety. Emi will be staying with her in the future. I absolutely recommend her to everyone!”
“Rafael Maldonado would be a great pet sitter as he has been such a wonderful and caring pet dad to his dog, Rocky, for the past 8 years. He is always thinking about his dog’s needs, ensuring Rocky eats high quality food, gets a good amount of exercise every day and that his dog also exercises his mind through game play. I too have a dog which I have entrusted in Rafael’s care. Levi is always happy and fulfilled whenever I come back. (Probably because Rafael just made him the best doggy dinner ever!) I am very picky about who I am able to leave Levi with and Rafael is someone I know I will not have to worry about Levi while I am away. Rafael is also great with many different types of people and personalities and goes out of his way to care for others in his community, especially the elderly who may be alone or need help. Overall, Rafael is a genuine and kind person who cares about all living things regardless of whether they have 2 or 4 legs. He would be the ideal candidate for Rover.”
Ann & Richard E.
“Ann and Rick made my dog Winnie feel right at home and took great care of her during our recent very long day first visit. I received reports and photos during the day, which I very much appreciated. Even though we had done a successful meet and great beforehand and Winnie trotted into their house with only a brief look back, they felt she was a bit nervous and adjusted her day accordingly. I look forward to future bookings.”
Jee Hwan C.
“Jee was very accommodating, professional and friendly. He’s so good with dogs and I felt really reassured having my pup, Moony with him. His doggy is also very sweet and was a great playmate for Moony. Thank you Jee”
“Liam is amazing with animals of all sizes and breeds. He is so compassionate and attentive. He has cared for my pup many times and has had a dog that he took care of for years as well. He would be a great person to have watch over your furry best friend.”
“Ruth was amazing with our two dogs! She was super communicative, professional and very flexible as our schedule changed a bit. We would definitely use her again next time we are in the area!”
“Erica took great care of my dog! She checked in with me during the day and sent photos. I will definitely look to use her again for dog sitting.”
“Danielle was AMAZING!! She kept me updated throughout the whole day and sent pictures. When I got my baby girl back she was relaxed and ready for bed after her first long day at Puppy Care! Will definitely be reaching out to Danielle again.”
“Shannon was absolutely incredible! She gave great updates and was really responsive after I dropped off my beagle. Her own pup was also really great. 15/10!”
“Guy helped us out when we needed a Doggie Day Care while we were visiting Arlington National Cemetery for an interment. We didn't know how long the 3 ceremonies would take, and he told us that he would help us for whatever we needed. With all that was going on for us, he offered comfort in taking care of our beloved Toby.”
