About Natassia

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay-at-home dog mom to my two year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Mickey. I wanted a job with flexible hours to match my husband's non-traditional work hours so I've been a full-time sitter and walker since December 2015. I've since provided walking services, drop in visits, doggy daycare, and overnight boarding for over 80 different dogs from puppies to seniors!

Caring for pups while you're at work or on vacation isn't always easy but it's always worth it to me. You love them like family and I love them like best friends. I provide an intimate/comfortable environment by only taking 1 dog at a time in my apartment. I take proper safety precautions to ensure dogs can peacefully coexist in a shared space and in many cases facilitate a close friendship between my dog and yours.

I've raised my boy since he was 9 weeks old. To be honest it is one of the most challenging learning experiences I've had but I can say all of my patience, care and dedication to work with a professional dog trainer has paid off and made me a very proud and confident dog owner ready to take on more responsibilities. I may even be able to teach your dog a few new tricks using only positive reinforcement!

My pup has had some health issues in the past which makes me no stranger to administering pills, applying topical medication, providing a special diet, extra potty breaks and special care.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I strive to provide the best customer service, value, quality and availability to ensure your dog has an awesome stay/walk filled with fun times and lots of love.

Your dog will live the life with me at Mickey's Playhouse! I will send plenty of daily reports and pictures throughout their stay. They will be loved and respected and will become a member of my family. When your pup is with me I make the commitment never to be gone for more than 4 hours on the weekdays so your pet will almost always be by my side.

I only keep one dog at a time since I live in a one bedroom apartment. Occasionally I will allow one more if I know both guest dogs will get along well and if it's less than 48 hours and both owners agree but my goal is a home atmosphere and not a home turned into a dog boarding facility.

If your dog is well-socialized they can come with me on my dog walks and to the park. If your dog prefers their own space they can have free roam, since I crate my dog while I'm away.

My drop-off/pick-up hours are very flexible since I do this full-time however you will incur a daycare or additional night charge if you do not pick up the same time you dropped off.

Feel free to book a day of daycare before your trip to ease your mind before you travel.

I am also flexible. If you have any questions, special needs or concerns please just ask. I will do everything I can to make sure you are 100% good with leaving your beloved pup with me, I truly understand how hard it is and will do whatever I can to accommodate your wishes during your pet's stay. I've handled many different cases of separation anxiety, picky eaters, toy possessive behavior, leash reactivity, power chewers, sick doggies, and other special cases. Please just be honest and I will be more likely to work with you and your dog.

FOR DOG WALKING/DROP IN VISITS: I can only accommodate dogs in Merrifield near the Dunn Loring Metro Station and Mosaic District. Even if my calendar appears unavailable that doesn't affect my dog walking/drop in schedule so feel free to message me if you are within proximity. Thank you.

FOR DAY CARE/BOARDING: At this time I'm taking housebroken dogs only.
I require a meet and greet with all first time clients, no exceptions.
Please bring up to date vet records with you to the meet and greet.

What is your dog's experience with other dogs?
Are they ever aggressive/possessive over food, toys, people or other dogs?
Have they had any previous training?
Any unusual behaviors, quirks, or fears?

Natassia helped us out with a dog visit when we were tied up at work and she was wonderful. She spent lots of quality time with Kelly and took several photographs while she was here that she sent us right after she left. We will definitely use her again!
Brownie had a wonderful time with Natassia. She took great care of her and updated daily with tons of pictures and messages. Mickey is very easy going and playful, too. Brownie clearly had an amazing time with him. They went to dog parks, walked several times and wrestled at home (hilarious!!).

Natassia is also very flexible. Our booking was kind of last minute, but she still managed to arrange a meet and greet session before the actual boarding.

I'm super comfortable leaving Brownie with Natassia and will definitely work with her again!
