Washington D.C., with its rich history and monumental landmarks, is known for more than just being our nation's capital. Taking a cue from presidential pooches, like President Obama's furry friend Bo and President Bush's canine companion Barney, roaming the halls of the White House for centuries, dogs in the Washington D.C. area are viewed as valuable members of the family. Washington D.C. abounds with pet-friendly events and landmarks so your four-legged friend never needs to leave your side or can explore the city with a local pet sitting professional when you travel. Even Georgetown University loves dogs with their English bulldog Mascot "Jack the Bulldog" and "Jack Jr" in training.
When Washington D.C. locals and politicians are leading their busy lives, criss-crossing the globe, the best option for their pooches is home dog boarding with DogVacay.com, a service that connects traveling dog owners with dog lovers who are ready to provide dog boarding, doggy daycare, and dog walking services. Whether our pet sitting hosts are taking their new four-legged best friend for a historic walk around the FDR Memorial and the National Arboretum or to the National Mall for a game of fetch or Rock Green Park for some green scenery, DogVacay.com's Washington DC dog boarding hosts can't wait to give your pup a vacation to remember!
