About Dora

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Dora :) I am a recent graduate of James Madison University. I live in D.C. and work at a nonprofit downtown.

I routinely dog walk and dog sit neighbors' and friends' dogs. I have been using dogvacay for about 5 years now. I adore all pets, and I am a person who can be trusted to keep your dogs safe, happy, and comfortable! I have lots of experience pet sitting, for small to x large pets. I am good at being flexible and caring for any of your pet's quirks like seperation anxiety, unusual eating or walking habits, etc.

My house is in great location- about a two minute walk from Lincoln Park- a true pet haven! I am also close to the Capitol building, Eastern Market, and lots of green space. Also I am willing to be flexible with prices, just let me know what you think is appropriate. I am willing to stay overnight and travel to other peoples' houses.

*As of now I strongly prefer dog sitting services(watching the dog at your house) as opposed to dog hosting!*

Dora's a caring soul with a sweet spot for cuddly pets. She's attentive, responsible, and will be sure to send you photo updates of your four-legged friend while you're away. Would highly recommend her to watch any pet :)

Dora is great with animals-- she's the person you see on the sidewalk who politely asks to pet your dog because "they're soooo cute!" They naturally flock to her, with reason-- she really and truly cares about dogs and treats any pet she's taking care of as though they're her own. In addition to being an animal lover, she is responsible-- shows up on time, communicates well, and is reliable through and through.

Our dog, Sophia, had a great stay with Dora. As a creature of habit who is most comfortable at home, it worked well for her to stay at the house while we were on vacation, and have Dora stop in and tend to her throughout the day.

We got back to Sophia just as we left her, happy and well rested.

Dora was really easy to communicate with, flexible and friendly. If schedules allow in the future, we definitely hope to book Dora again to watch after Sophia.
