About Maggie and Peter

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a young, active, professional couple that truly loves animals! We have 15 years of experience caring for pets. We have a wonderful dachshund named Barrett who loves everybody and everything (especially food). Mi casa es su casa so your dog is welcome to make him or herself comfortable in our apartment.

Things we are looking for in a potential DogVacay guest:
- 25 lbs and under (apartment rules)
- Friendly with other pups
- Potty trained (apartment is all carpet)
- Can be unsupervised for up to 10 hours on work days
- Doesn't mind lots of cuddles and kisses from us! :)

We would love to have doggy sleepovers so Barrett has someone to hang out with while we are gone at work. We live near Rock Creek Park (great for long dog walks!) and several other fun dog parks so your pup will get lots of active outdoor time. We will give your dog a nice long walk in the morning, afternoon and in the evening. On weekends, we will take them somewhere fun in the DC metro area to hike around and get some good sniffs. If your dog isn't the active type, we are definitely down to stay in and cuddle on the couch too! Our main goal is making sure your pet feels right at home :)

Maggie grew up with an extended family with numerous dogs. She loved all animals and was always bringing home dogs, cats, ducks, armadillos and lots of lizards! She likes nothing better than cuddling on the couch surrounded by dogs! Maggie and Peter are both wonderful dog "parents"; both to their own dachshund Barrett and the numerous dogs that come into their lives. They are very conscientious about their work schedules so one of them always gets home early for long dog walks. I often visit with Maggie during her dog walks and I always hear her "sweet talking" to all of her dogs. They truly love what they do!

Peter was great! He gave us updates and even took care of Rambo after he got sick on his visit. He also had Rambo meet another dog that would be there before hand, very thoughtful. We would definitely ask him again.
Our dog had a great time! Maggie sent tons of pictures all weekend so we didn't miss him too much! He had fun being around their dog Barrett, which definitely made it easier for us to be away.
Zoe loved hanging with Maggie, Peter and Barrett! I loved all the picture updates, their accessibility, and flexibility. Both Maggie and Peter were a joy! We will definitely use them again if/when we're in DC!
Maggie and Peter are amazing!! This was my dog's second stay with them & I will continue to book with them! They are very accommodating and always send picture updates. My dog loves staying with Maggie and Peter!
This is a very good vacay host and hostess. Chloe came home happy and healthy, she loves being with other dogs so she had a good visit with Peter and Maggie's Barrett. They sent lots of photos so I could see how welcome she was, they even let her sleep in their bed.
Maggie and Peter were such great hosts! My Hero is a nervous little dog, and we met to make sure Barrett and Hero got along. They were super flexible with drop off times and Maggie had some great questions to better take care of Hero. They are super friendly dog lovers, responsible dog owners, and have a lot of experience dog sitting. They sent me pictures everyday. I would highly recommend them and will be calling them next time I need a sitter!
Maggie and Peter were very thorough on the front end about my pup and his needs. They sent tons of photo and video updates during the weekend and it seemed like Len had a good time. Although it wasn't a good fit, Maggie and Peter provided a safe and caring environment.
Maggie and Peter are amazing!! I really can't say enough good things about them, this review is going to be an understatement because I can't convey, through just a review, how good of hosts they are. From the get-go, they were quick to respond and eager to set up a meet and greet. They accommodated our unique requests and did so with a smile :-)

We knew that are dog was safe, cared for, and having a great time staying with Maggie and Peter. It was a great relief to have that piece of mind while we were away and focused on other things. Trot would be lucky to stay with Maggie and Peter again.
Peter's thorough meet and greet and preparation left me feeling very confident that he would take good care of my pup over the long weekend. And by all accounts, that's exactly what happened! :)
Maggie was out of town but Peter took really good care of Rambo - sent photo updates once to twice a day, was very attentive and responded to my texts very promptly! Peter was great - Rambo was happily exhausted when we got home, which is always a good sign! =)
I can't say enough about how great Maggie and Peter were!!! They sent multiple daily updates - for two weeks! - on how my little guy was doing and took amazing care of him. He has a heart condition and dental issues that they paid special attention to. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them in the future.
Maggie and Peter were absolutely fantastic! Totally flexible on timing which was such a great help and even moved their schedule around for our pup, Blanche, which was definitely above and beyond! B had an amazing time and can't wait to go back and play with their pup ASAP. HIGHLY recommend them!!!
Maggie and Peter were FABULOUS. I received so many pictures and videos of my two pups while we were away for almost 6 days. They were willing to meet me almost last minute (a week before my trip) and asked so many great questions that I didn't think of to tell them. They didn't think I was completely crazy for leaving detailed notes and stickies all over the pup's stuff (helicopter dog mom). They understood and were patient with my pups' quirks. My pups seemed to enjoy their time with them. They seemed to fit right into their family for the time they were there and I would HAPPILY leave my pups with Maggie, Peter and Barrett again! Thanks so much, you three! I feel so much better knowing I have someone I can trust to leave my pups with in the future.
Maggie and Peter are just absolutely wonderful! I have used them numerous times through a busy, travel filled, work season and every time they have taken wonderful care of my pup. She always returns home happy and healthy. They are also exceedingly accommodating with pick-up and drop-off times and are great at sending photo and video updates. When I leave my dog with them, I have complete peace of mind!
Maggie was so wonderful with our fur babies. I trusted her entirely with them for the weekend and would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a dog sitter!
Maggie and Peter did a great job asking lots of insightful questions and making sure they'd have everything they needed to take great care of Minnie! I like that they are comfortable with older dogs and their quirks. They sent plenty of photos and updates and generally made me feel very comfortably leaving Minnie in their care for the weekend. I would highly recommend them for anyone with a laid back pup who likes the company of other dogs on their Vacays.
This was my first experience with Dog Vacay and it couldn't have been better. From the meet and greet I could tell Maggie is a dog lover and my doggie loved her. She sent me all kinds of cute updates so I knew my baby was having a great time.
I would definitely recommend her and will definitely rebook!
Maggie was very flexible when we needed to extend our girls stay! Thanks Maggie!
My girls had a wonderful time with Maggie! She kept updated with a lot of pictures. Thanks Maggie!
Maggie and Peter are the best!
Maggie and Peter are great! They kept me up to date on how Vanessa was doing and sent me pictures of her. They're very organized and take the job very seriously. I highly recommend them and will definitely be coming back.
Maggie and Peter were great hosts! I hated to have to go out of town for so long and leave my doggie, but they were wonderful providing updates with pictures and taking extra precaution when a possible medical issue arose. I will definitely be using them in the future.
Maggie was great. My dog, Cody, has had some recent issues with his back, and Maggie was very accommodating to his medical needs. Then, when I misread my return flight info, Maggie let me come by to get Cody at a really late hour. She's great, and we'll definitely use her again.
