Dog Boarding In Washington, D. C.

The Washington, D.C. Dog Kennel Alternative

Washington D.C., home of the nation’s head dog, is also home to some of the nation’s chief dog lovers. Case in point: Fido isn’t just allowed, but welcome to explore the National Mall and walk laps around the Reflecting Pool. Though this is a leash-required area, the photo opportunities are incredible.

Of course, some dog parents prefer a more rustic environment. Well, D.C. has that too! Travel few miles north to Rock Creek Park and discover a national playground with plenty of trails and smells for your dog to enjoy.

Whether traveling for a long weekend or an epic campaign, dog owners in Washington, D.C. can travel comfortably knowing all Rover dog boarding, dog sitting, and dog walking services are covered by Premium Insurance. Because your dog deserves nothing but the best, most-loving care while you’re away.
