About ADA

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are licensed through Montgomery County Animal Control to offer dog boarding services in our home.

My oldest son, Chris and I absolutely love caring for animals and what better way than to watch your fur babies when you're out of town, need a break or have a last minute need. We will gladly treat your little furry family member as one of our own. We have a spacious home and allow our pets to roam the house freely, three levels of space. They are allowed on beds, couches or wherever they find a comfy spot.

Chris is home full time and I work from 6:45am until 3:30pm just down the street from my home, flexibility is key, and allows me to come home to check on the dogs during my lunch time. The key here is that your fur child will be supervised at all times.

We provide plenty of outdoor play time, at least 4 times a day for 20 minutes, in addition to morning and afternoon walks.

Dogs beds throughout the house. Large open backyard for running and playing.

Please allow us to take care of your furry family member during vacations, holiday's or just because. We look forward to the opportunity to pamper your pet!

Ada and her family make's our little Westie feel right at home. Highly recommended.
Chris and Ada are terrific. Responsive and professional and our rescue pup had a great day. We look forward to many more daycare and boarding stays.
Our dog Daisy was well cared for and had a great time! Ada and her family were terrific. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much! I felt so much better knowing Jaxon would be in a loving family home. He was happy and playing with his friends and didn't want to come home.
Ada and her Family was great with Chase. Ada's House Is his home away from home. I would recommend Ada anytime.
I could tell by the pictures Ada posted that Lucy was having a great stay. She had the company of other dogs and people and got lots of exercise. I will definitely use Ada again in the future! Thanks.
Ada was professional and kind to our dog, Jericho. He has chronic ear infections and she was good about giving drops in his ears once a day. She was also great about sending either a video or a picture almost every day we were gone. I would definitely recommend her!
It is very hard to leave our pup on any trip, but Ada and Chris were very kind to her and sent us lots of photos/videos to assure that she was taken care of.
Ada and her family truly make us feel like we're dropping our pup off for his own vacay while we take ours. Ada responds quickly when coordinating drop-off and pick-up times, and we LOVE getting multiple photo updates with messages. We've even left our pup w/ Ada for up to a full week, and he comes home happy and healthy. Highly recommend.
We were very happy with ADA.
Ada was perfect! Sent daily updates and pictures! My little boy was taken VERY good care of!
Ada takes great care of our fur babies! Thanks so much!!!!
Ada continues to provide excellent services. Highly recommend!
Ada provided amazing professional care of my pet. Her availability continues to make her care unique.
Jayda had a great time during her daycare stay at Ada's! Our sassy Whippet enjoyed her daily walks, yard play and chase, and interacting with the other furry guests for which Ada and her son Chris were caring. Ada was responsive to my questions and concerns via the Dog Vacay app and Jayda bonded with her son Chris immediately. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ada for a boarding stay, daycare, or walks!
Ada and her family were wonderful to our 2 dogs during their Thanksgiving holiday stay! They warmly welcome dogs into their family. We have already booked their next stay!
Ada was great! Winston had a great time and we received many updates..even videos while we were gone. Would definitely use her again!
As a new dog parent I was really emotional about leaving my dog with someone else for the first time while I went on vacation, especially a complete stranger...but Ada was BEYOND awesome. She sent me multiple photos a day with updates, and was instantly responsive with any communications I sent her. Plus, my pup had a great time playing with all of his friends and I'm pretty sure he didn't want to leave Camp Ada when I came to pick him up. I will definitely use her for all my pet sitting needs!!!
Ada is very responsive! My pet had a great stay and the daily pictures were very welcome.
We had a great experience with Ada, including photo updates!
Ada's son was great! Will use them again for some doggie day care.
Our puppy has been having a blast at daycare. Ada is caring and responsive. I'd highly recommend this service.
blue was well taken care of. lots of updates, flexible schedule.
It was an excellent experience. Top notch care and responsive. Will use again
Milo came home from Ada's house happy and tired from all the playing he had been doing with the other dog guests.
TERRIFIC !!! I've used them twice now for daycare. They are very nice, very flexible. My dog came back very happy both times. Highly reccomended.
See privious comments
Very good communication with us while away from the area. The reports on our dog Talulah were excellent. Thank you.
Ada and Chris are very sweet. My baby gets walks and princess treatment.
Great stay
Ada and her son Chris were very helpful and flexible. I had an emergency and so had to find a friendly place for Max, my rescue Westie. Ada was able to help out and responded very timely to answer all my questions.
My two dogs love going here - I would highly recommend and I'm definitely booking in the future.
My two dogs love going here - I would highly recommend and I'm definitely booking in the future.
We always worry when we leave Sandy in an unfamiliar place. She's a rescue, and can be very timid with strangers. As soon as we walked in the door, Sandy was comfortable. We were extremely confident in leaving her with Ada. We received daily updates and pictures, and were able to rest easy knowing Sandy was well cared for. She came home to us healthy, happy, and in good spirits. We will absolutely have her visit Ada again!
Lulu had a blast!
Best dog sitter ever
Great vacay for Kitsi. I get cute photos and feedback. She comes home happy!
I could tell their family was passionate about taking good care of the dogs. Atlas had a great time as he was very happy when I arrived!! One thing I wish they did was update me throughout the day about Atlas with either texts or pictures as other dogvacay sitters have done with me in the past.
Updates/photos throughout and a tired and happy dog at pickup - she had a great visit!
Ada was great! Onyx and Lola had a great time on their Vacay!! Ada sent pictures and videos to capture some of their events throughout the day, I will most definitely use her services again!!
Loved the pics everyday and video. My dog seemed to have fun with the other dogs.
Ada and her son were very flexible and Ada made an effort to get home in time so I could pick up my dog at the end of my trip. She also let my dog sleep in her (Ada's) room at night since my dog really needs to have a connection with people. This is a good place if your dog likes to hang out with other dogs. She has a lot of dogs here! They do seem happy. The only thing I was concerned about is that my dog was extremely thirsty when I brought her home.
We are always hesitant to trust new faces with our dog Loki, but our previous DogVacay favorites are currently unable to look after him, so we had to find a new sitter. Chris had fantastic reviews and was reasonably priced so we set up a meet and greet, which revealed a caring environment and a professional demeanor. We left Loki over a weekend and were rewarded with pictures of the happy pup and updates about his daily activities. By the time we returned he was exhausted and ecstatic from all the playing. Chris was thoughtful caregiver and worked around our very late hours for drop-off and pick-up, which was greatly appreciated. We highly recommend him and are definitely adding him to our rotation of dog sitters.
My pup stayed with her for a few nights and came back to me clean, happy, and tired!
Ada took our Daisy for a walk today while we were out. All went well, and we appreciated Ada's friendliness and willingness to be flexible. We would love to give her our business again in the future!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!! It's not easy to leave your pups for 2 weeks, but i was completely relaxed on my vacation knowing they were with ada and chris. they went the extra mile sending lots of photos and videos, so i knew the dogs were having fun. I think what strikes me the most is how calm the dogs have been since our return. In the past, they have been agitated or depressed for a few days until they settle back in. Another great thing is that we found them super clean and perfumy!! And even when Ada has a group of doggies, her always always smells clean and good!!! You just notice things!!!
Very responsive
Jake was well taken care of during his stay.
Our dogs were very happy and so were we because Ada was always very responsive and she uploaded pics of the boys daily!
Luna is always happy there! Ada and Chris are awesome!
I was very happy, it was my dogs first time staying with someone else.
Rai came back happy and healthy. Ada sent a lot of pictures and communicated with us while we were on vacation. We will be using her again.
I never have been away from my dog. I've never trusted her with ANYONE and I am so grateful to have found Ada. The entire family is warm and they are dog lovers. I received photo updates daily and although it made me miss her even more, it also gave me confidence that she was in good hands. Bella ate and seemed happy the entire week I was away. She even cuddled in bed with Ada at night.

Thank you so much for treating Bella like she was one of your own. My fur baby means the world to me and it's nice to know that I have found someone who I can trust.
Ada provided a safe, loving environment for our dog Saffron while we were on vacation. Saffron gets anxious when we leave her anywhere. Ada was sensitive to my concerns and felt confident that Saffron would soon settle down and enjoy the company of the other dogs in her care. She was right. I appreciated the daily photo updates showing that Saffron was really doing okay. This is the most comfortable place I've ever felt leaving Saffron. I would definitely use her again.
My daughters Huskey is not the easiest to take care of. Ada and Chris did a wonderful job. I will recommend them to any of my friends. Definitely use them again!
Just an excellent vacay! Our dog was taken a very good care of for 10 days while we were traveling. Immediate response to any questions, and pics every day. Very happy with Ada and would certainly go back when needed! Thanks Ada!
Autumn had a great time! Ada was very responsive and her daily photo updates were great. Having other dogs there to play with autumn was a big plus. Thanks Ada!
Our dog came home tired and happy. It was a great stay for her. Ada was helpful, flexible, and communicative with a happy home.
I wasn't there, but I believe the kids had a great time with their weekend visit. You accommodated my late arrival back into town without question and the kids were bathed, packed up and ready to go! Many thanks for the help! Good job!
Another awesome vacation for both the family and JJ! I'm surprised he wanted to come home!!! He can't wait to be at Ada's again!!
Ada was an amazing host for my golden retriever Beaux. She kept me up to date with pictures of Beaux throughout his stay, and he really did enjoy himself. I would highly recommend Ada for all dog boarding needs.
I was so pleased with the care my dog, Bella, received with Ada. Bella enjoyed playing with the other dogs as seen in the multiple cute photos that Ada sent every day. Highly recommend!
Ada is super responsive!
Got back with me right away and addressed our concerns before leaving our precious pup. Ellie was very nervous at first but after receiving several pictures, we realized we were more nervous than she was. She must of played hard because she slept the entire night in one spot without moving. Very pleased!
We really appreciated all of the video/photo updates! Thanks!
Ada and Chris have been a absolutely fantastic with our dog. They are very good communicative, making pick-up and drop-off very easy. They send pictures and video updates so that we have confidence that our dog is well cared for. We plan to continue using them for future dog board in needs and highly recommend them!
Ada and Chris were amazing! They treated Rufus like he was their dog. They had a full house when he stayed with them, but as a puppy, he's pretty needy, and they kept him happy by providing lots of exercise and TLC. Already booked another vacay with them.
Ada and Chris are wonderful. Ada was responsive and flexible with my drop off times. I received tons of photo update. They were really great when I had a last minute change and Champ needed twice daily medication for some skin issues. I know Champ had a blast because he came home tired and smelling clean. I look forward to our next Vacay with them!
Luna left Ada's place a happy camper. She got her bath while there which makes me super happy. Thanks Chris for a great job !
I was appreciative for the photos/video of my pup
I left my dog Ollie with Ada for the weekend. He had a great time playing and made lots of new friends. I especially loved all the picture updates she sent me throughout the weekend! I would highly recommend her for all your boarding needs.
I recently relocated to Maryland and didn't have anyone to keep Kairo. I felt comfortable with Ada and Chris. They sent me plenty of updates and photos. Kairo was happy when I picked him up.
We were very pleased with the care for Luna. They posted pics and videos of Luna daily with messages of how she was doing. This was extra special since it was our first time leaving her to go away for a few days. Luna had just as much fun at Ada's as we did during out vacation. I highly recommend Ada and her crew!
Rosie came home very happy after her stay with Ada and her son Christopher. In the pictures they sent me regularly while I was away, she was always in the company of their resident pug Napoleon, and when we picked her up, she went back in a couple of times to say goodbye to Napoleon --and we knew she really liked it there!
Spur had a great time with Ada. She sent pictures and updates everyday. Her flexibility with pick-up and drop-off time is amazing and really helps to make the whole process seamless.
Ada and Chris took great care of my dog Sophie, and kept us updated with cute pics. I will definitely use them again!
This was our first time using Ada’s service and our first time leaving our newly-adopted pup, Sadie. When we picked up Sadie after three days, she greeted us along with doggy friends she had made, tail wagging, happy and relaxed. Clearly she had fun and was well cared for and we’re very pleased about that. Ada and her son Chris are calm, patient and experienced, and treated all the dogs there like members of the family. We had hoped to get daily updates and pictures but we only got one due to a glitch in the software. That aside, however, it was a very positive experience for us and for our dog, and we would definitely use Ada’s Dawgs and Paws Pet Motel again. Highly recommend her service!
Lincoln had an amazing time. He played with so many dogs. They were so flexible regarding pick-up and drop-off. She was great about updating me each day and responding to me.
The care was outstanding, I will definitely use her service again
Fantastic job! We have two dogs, Toby and Elmer, who are a handful. Plus, we have a 55-gallon saltwater fish tank with seahorses, and 8 parakeets. Ada and Chris did a super job keeping everyone happy, fed, and safe while we were out of town. Highly recommend.
This was our first dogvacay experience and it was great. We felt comfortable and confident leaving our pup with Ada! Thank you!
Lucy was well cared for. We were nervous as this was the first time leaving her with someone for a long period of time. Ada allowed me to come visit prior to booking our reservation. It was great to see photos and video clips of Lucy throughout the week. Ada was very accommodating with our drop off and pick up times as they changed after we booked Lucy's stay. Lucy came home smelling clean and happy.
We had to travel last minute for work and Ada was very responsive and flexible. It was our first doggy vacay and Ada kept us well informed with pictures and video while we were away, which was a huge comfort. When Nala wasnt feeling well Ada reacted quickly and was kind enough to wash her bed for us. Thank you for taking care of our baby girl!
This was my dog's 2nd stay with Ada, and we look forward to his next stay there. Ada is wonderful. Very flexible on drop-off/pick-up and sends great pictures. I could tell by the pictures and by how my dog was when I picked him up that he felt right at home with Ada and her family.
This was the first time I utilized the service and I do not think it could have gone any better. I was in a pinch and needed a sitter for my fur baby and she obliged. Also she would send me periodic updates via the website to let me know how my pup was doing.
ADA and her son were awesome! We had last minute dog walking needs and they worked with us seamlessly. Thank you for everything- our Cooper had the best time!
Our dog had a great stay with Ada!
Loved the videos and photos from Waffles' visits! Thank you so much! I will be using you again. My pup was so happy to not get boarded in a facility!!!!
What a wonderful experience I had with Ada, leaving my dogs, they seem really happy, I loved the pics and updates she will send me about their stay there while we were away, I feel like it felt for them staying at their own home, my dogs are my kids ( lol) so I love how happy they seem and calm. Most def. will be coming back or contacting her for another stay. If there were more stars I will give her 100 plus ++ I'm so happy I can't explain :))
ADA was wonderful with Sigmund. She took such great care of him and kept us updated throughout.
Ada and her crew were wonderful. It was our first time leaving Luna, our german shepherd elsewhere for the day and we were very pleased with the results. She came back happy and exhausted from playing. We were glad Luna had a yard to run around in, and kids and dogs to play with. We could say she was even spoiled since we don't allow her to sleep on the furniture. We definitely plan to use Ada's services again when we travel.
Ada was wonderful with our dog. Would recommend her.
Ada was great, everything went well, she sent daily updates and pictures to help us feel less distant from Ringo. Highly recommended.
Ada was so responsive and easy to coordinate with. She sent me photos of Spur's stay along with updates on how he was doing. Spur came home happy and exhausted. Ada and her family took such good care of our beagle that he is already booked for another stay this summer! Thanks, Ada :)
Ada was super responsive from beginning to end. She treated my puppy as if he were her own, sent me constant updates and photos of all the fun activities they were doing. When I picked up my puppy he was happy, sleepy, and smelled good. I will continue to use Ada and her family every chance I get!
We were very happy with our dog's stay!! Ada gave us photos and updates over the course of our dog's 10 day stay. Our dog is a bichon mix and, while trained, she is also very high energy and that can be tough for people watching her. She also gets nervous around bigger dogs but seems to have done well with the very mixed "pack" of dogs staying with Ada. Going above and beyond, Ada gave Halle a bath the day before we picked her up, let us extend Halle's stay a day when snow had us stuck out of town, and even found our lost ball after the stay was over. I highly recommend her.
Ada and her family (pugs included) were so great! Our lulu was not just taken care of, she was treated like one of the family! We will definitely use her services again. Lulu's new favorite home away from home :)
Ollie had a wonderful time at Ada's. First we had a very good meet-n-greet - thanks to Ada for accommodating. Ada has a couple of dogs of her own and has a couple more dogs she adds to the pack through DogVacay. I really liked that there are several dogs and they get to socialize in a natural-for-dogs fashion. There's a fenced in backyard that is an important plus for leaving your dog at Ada's. Ada also walked Ollie in addition to just letting him out in the backyard - and sent us photos of our happy dog. Ada has been very good about responding to our messages and has shown a great sense of responsibility in taking care of dogs. We will definitely use Ada's service again.
Everything was perfect. Bailey had a great time. Mid-stay pics helped reassure us that he was in great hands! Thanks again
Ada was great! She was very flexible and great with my dog.
ADA was absolutely wonderful taking care of Mushu! She sent multiple picture updates a day and he always looked like he was having a blast! She was very flexible and made the entire process very easy.
Thank you for taking care of Benji for the last few days. I think he enjoyed staying there. When he got home he is all exhausted and been sleeping for hours.
