About Alma

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We live on a beautiful 1/2 acre on a quiet private road with a fully fenced and dog-proof back yard. Our pool has a fully automated child and dog-proof cover, enthusiastic swimmers are welcome to jump in when supervised:).

My family and I have served as a foster home for many dogs, puppies and kittens from Second Chance Rescue and Hop-A-Long Rescue over the past 20 years. We have also had many of our own pets including two dogs we adopted as puppies. We care for friend's pets and they call our home the "ultimate dog get-a-way." Our services include walks in the neighborhood, toy chasing in the back yard, energetic hikes for athletic dogs and a warm friendly cuddle in the evenings.

Puppies are welcome, we have lots of experience with these little guys and Lidia, our dog, is a great and patient puppy "trainer." The youngsters need more time and attention so I do charge $10 additional a day for pups 1 year and younger.

We offer hosting services because we enjoy pets, our dog likes companionship, and our home is a great setting for animals.

Zora has spent several vacay's with Alma and her family and she always has a great time and is well taken care of.
This was the 3rd time that we left our small dog with Alma and we are very happy.
We have tried others in the past but our dog Choco seems a lot happier and taken care of with Alma.
We come all the way from Fairfax but will continue to use her happier and taken care of with Alma.
We come all the way from Fairfax but will continue to use her because our dog now feels like he is at home with them.
Highly recommend Alma and her husband!!!

Alma was wonderful for us as new puppy parents. Even when our puppy freaked out at seeing one of her cats (which he'd never done before), she kept her cool and assured us everything would be fine. When we picked him up he was happy and tired from her cool and assured us everything would be fine. When we picked him up he was happy and tired from lots of playing. Thanks, Alma!
