About Miguel & María

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to District Happy Tails!

WHO WE ARE:
We are a couple in our 30s who have been caring for dogs for over 10 years. We love all dogs and we are able to take care of them as long as they can hang out with our two resident pups, Carmela and Marley. Carmela is a 5 years old English Red Tick Coonhound and Marley is a 3 years old Treeing Walker Coonhound.

WHAT WE OFFER:
Our home has a fenced medium size backyard that is perfect for your pups. Each vacay day includes 2 (45-60 mins.)walks on leash around our
neighborhood, Rock Creek Park or trip to Upshur Dog Park, plus unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home.

We will supervise your pups most of the day and provide transportation to a vet in case of an emergency.

Our pups are crated only during sleep hours (10:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m.) but we are able to accommodate our guests in a crate free environment by placing a dog bed in our living room.

We also offer care for elderly or disabled dogs (as we have one ourselves).

We are familiarized with basic positive reinforcement training (tricks, basic commands, walks) and how to deal with some types of behaviors.

Meet -n- Greet is required prior to day care or boarding.

We are available most weekends and holidays so hurry up and make your reservation! We cannot wait to meet you and your furry friends!

Miguel and Agus are wonderful! They took great care of my dog! I would give them more stars if I could!
Over the past few years, I've used a number of DogVacay hosts. Of all of them, I've had the best experience with Maria and Miguel. They're incredibly responsive in communication, both in setting up my dog's Vacay and in the numerous pictures I received from his overnight.

They asked the right questions, were transparent, and made me feel totally at-ease to leave my dog there, knowing he would get the exercise, love, and attention I'd give him myself. My pup really seemed to enjoy himself, too, and he has tried to pull his way on the leash back to their house already!

Maria and Miguel will be my first choice in the future.

Maria and Miguel were kind enough to accept a last-minute request for the long weekend of July 4th (we were all the more grateful as we had difficulties finding someone). They turned out to be such good hosts for our dog Romeo! Although we initially felt sad leaving him at their place, we felt right away reassured with the first picture that arrived within two hours after we dropped him. The pictures kept coming during the weekend we were away, so we never had to worry if he was doing alright - actually we saw that he was having so much fun and was not missing us at all:-). It seems like Romeo got along well with Maria and Miguel's dogs Marley and Carmela and had fun together. He also enjoyed the long walks in a more exciting environment than his usual walks in the city, including the one to Rock Creek Park. Because of the traffic jam, we were late for Romeo's pick-up, but Maria and Miguel were very kind and accommodating about it. We definitely recommend them, and would like to request their help again.
