About Daphne & Pia

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

***For our our D.C. clients that require sitting at your home, we are limited to weekend in-home care only***
***For the safety of our pets and yours, please request a meet-n-greet!***

Daphne is a Military Spouse, former Biologist and a full-time Registered Nurse and Pia is a former active duty U.S. Army Soldier. We call Miami, FL our hometown, but have grown to love the DMV. We have 3 pooches : Neptune the Great Dane, Sox the Lab Mutt and Polo the Min-Pin Mutt. We are avid hikers, kayakers, bird watchers and DogVacay users ourselves. We understand what it is like to leave your family member with someone else while you are away. We provide lots of love, attention, safety and most importantly FUN! Our boys are very socialized and welcome all pups into our home.

If your pup is shy around other dogs, it is no problem. We have a an upstairs level and can easily keep your dog on the main level with us and keep the others away or vice-versa. Just let us know! There is plenty of space to keep everyone happy and safe. We can only offer 24/7 supervision during most (if not all) weekends if requested.

Pia was excellent with both of our dogs! She was very responsive and sent lots of pictures while she was watching them. She took the dogs on lots of walks and they seemed very happy when we came home.
Daphne and Pia took great care of my dog. I can't say enough good things. Plus, their house is immaculately clean. We will definitely book future stays with them!
Lucy had another great stay with Daphne and Pia. They are so accommodating and easy to work with, and Lucy always comes home happy and well loved.
Daphne & Pia were a HUGE help watching our pup while we were in the process of moving. They were flexible with our drop off and pick up times, and ensured Mia had a great day, as usual.
Daphne & Pia were awesome, as always!
Daphne and Pia are wonderful - they really understand what it's like to worry about leaving your baby in a new situation and especially for a long time. Daphne sent many pictures, assuring me that my girl was doing well. I know when I leave my dog with Daphne and Pia that she is well taken care of, as a part of their own family, along with their other dogs.
Once again, our experience was great! So lovely to know our Daisy has a home away from home.
Daphne and Pia are absolutely wonderful hostesses! They not only took loving care of my dog, but also kept me up to date with daily pictures and texts!
Our flight home to pick up Daisy was canceled, sending my family into a panic. Pia and Daphne handled this potentially difficult situation with grace and professionalism. They were super accommodating, and we can't thank them enough!
Daisy's stay with Daphne and Pia was incredible! For us, traveling has always come with an anxiety about the experience our dog will have while we are away. This time, we were completely anxiety free!! We received photos and text message updates every day. Daisy came back after over a week with Daphne, Pia, and crew relaxed and happy. She also had a few holiday gifts in her bag :) We could not have asked for a better experience! Pia and Daphne are knowledgable and professional and are clearly doing this for their love of dogs.
Fantastic! A very positive experience. Would not hesitate to book with them again.
Daphne and Pia are two very dog friendly people. You can truly rest assured that your pets are getting the love and care you would give them at your home during their time with Daphne & Pia. I would highly recommend them as your first option for doggy vacays!!!
This is the second time our dog has stayed with Daphne and Pia and their doggies. They were wonderful hosts and Mia had a great time. They sent updates, including pictures, very often to let us know how Mia was doing through the day. Mia had a blast playing with Pollo, Sox, and Neptune and enjoyed lots of attention and snuggles from Daphne and Pia. They are great hosts and we can't wait to use them again!
Daphne and Pia are awesome caregivers. Our girl was with them for 2 weeks in October, and she gave them a howl (sure sign she's happy) and kissed Daphne goodbye (sure sign of affection - she doesn't kiss everyone!). They are great "dog people," as their own well-cared-for and happy boys demonstrate. Daphne's daily pupdates helped us feel comfortable that our dog was having a good vacay, just like us.
They were wonderful and kind to Bernie. Daphne stayed in touch with us while we were gone and sent photos. Their backyard is perfect of a dog to explore, roll in grass, and watch birds. They are located close to Silver Spring and near Four Corners Animal Hospital.
This was our dog's first stay, and Daphne helped us all feel comfortable about it. We were updated with info "dog people" want and appreciate, and our dog's demeanor when we picked her up showed she'd felt at home with Daphne. With three dogs of her own, Daphne has a great energy and inspires confidence in her caregiving. Our girl will be back!
Daphne & Pia were AMAZING hosts for our dog, Mia. They were accommodating and sweet and sent us pictures and texts to keep us posted all weekend. They brought Mia to the farmers market and to lunch! Their dogs were also great with her. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. We will definitely be using them again in the future.
Daphne and her boys were great. Our dog, Lucy, was well taken care of and had a lot of fun playing with her dogs. I will definitely use Daphne again! Thanks so much for making it easy and keeping us updated with photos.
Daphne took great care of our dog while we were out of town for a long weekend.
Th girls were extremely accommodating and made my boy feel right at home. Their own pups were very friendly and gave him a workout. He loved it.
