About Jason

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**To see us in action, check out our Instagram: @dorysdaycare**

Hello! We're Jason and Caitlin, two responsible young professionals who love dogs. We adopted our beagle mix, Dory, two years ago, and we started dog-sitting in 2015 because Caitlin wanted to get a second dog. Instead, we now have a rotating cast of friends, playmates and hiking buddies, which works better for our landlord. :)

While we both work 9-5 during the week (Jason is a project manager at the Department of Energy; Caitlin is a reporter at the Washington Post), it's really important to us that your dog gets a lot of exercise and attention during the workday. We generally take Dory on two lengthy walks -- one in the morning and one in the evening -- and give her a solid 30 or 40 minutes to run around in our building's fenced dog park when we get home. On weekends, we typically try to plan an active outing everyone can do: In the past, we've taken our canine guests (with their parents' permission!) to the Billy Goat Trail, Rock Creek Park, the Shirlington dog park, the Arboretum, and various local state parks and beaches.

Throughout all these adventures, we'll send you frequent photos of your pup and let you know how he's doing. We will also keep him supplied with a steady stream of organic homemade treats, which Caitlin makes every few days because she's a crazy dog lady.

Finally, while we never anticipate this happening, we have been doing this long enough that we know what to do if anything goes wrong or if your dog isn't feeling well. We have a vet on-call, in case of emergency, and ask that you leave us your vet's contact information as well. In the past, we have dealt with mishaps ranging from a puppy who arrived with chronic diarrhea to a boxer with severe seasonal and food allergies. (Have you ever tried to give a boxer eye drops? Trust us, we can handle anything.)

Jason, Caitlin, and resident pup Dory are amazing 5-star hosts for a pup on Vacay. They live in an apartment in the 16th street height neighborhood that includes a small private dog park right out front. Jason and Caitlin love taking pups out on adventures or just around town-- and every time, they make sure to send pics and updates back home!

Jason and Caitlin have been watching pups for two years but both grew up with dogs and are great dog handlers. Dory is also well socialized and gets along great with anyone, both canine and human.

On a personal note, we left our dog Ringo with Jason, Caitlin, and Dory and they all became instant friends. We got plenty of pictures of Ringo and Dory out and about, and Ringo came back tired but very happy and satisfied. The perfect stay!

We highly recommend Jason, Caitlin, and Dory as DogVacay hosts!
Our pup has stayed with Jason twice now and we have been more than pleased each time! We know he is well taken care of and enjoying himself with their pup as a playmate.
Jason was SUPER awesome. He was terrific with communication and flexibility, and he took incredible care of our dog. Couldn't recommend him any higher. Thx Jason!
Jason and Caitlin did a great job watching my boy while my wife and I were away for 5 days. We booked an extra day and ended up not needing it as we came back early and Jason was very flexible and allowed us to cancel that day. Overall Elroy came back happy. One thing I would mention is their apartment is a little on the small side, so if you have a larger dog you may want to be aware of that.
Jason was awesome! I would highly recommend a stay with him and Dory. Jason was very flexible with pick-up and drop-off.
Jason was awesome. Will definitely use again!
Jason was wonderful and very helpful in easing us into this experience as it was our first. Our dog Bear had a great time and we will definitely be using Jason again soon.
Jason was the perfect fit our little dog Zoey. She is a very shy and timid dog, but he was very calm and comfortable with her and sent pictures with updates while we were gone. I will definitely use him again in the future!
He was really flexible with pick up and drop off, and Cooper seemed really happy! I would recommend Jason!
Jason took good care of our beagle Dylan while we needed to get away for the weekend.
Jason and Kaitlin were great! Quick response during the booking process and very flexible when scheduling the meet and greet. My dogs have two very different personalities but they were able to handle them just great! Received pictures from their weekend and updates. When I picked the boys up from their apartment both dogs fell asleep on the way home which tells me they had a full and exciting weekend. Thanks Jason!
My dog, Prudence, had an excellent weekend with Jason. He was even kind of enough to meet me at 6 AM on a Friday morning to drop her off! Not to mention, Jason and his roommate made (what I assume are) delicious treats for Prudence to take home with her. I would definitely recommend Jason to anyone looking for a dogsitter!
Jason, Caitlin, and Dory were great! I boarded my dog Finn with them for four days while I was out of town. They sent a few picture updates to let me know how Finn was doing, which was nice. I wasn't terribly worried, Finn is easy going, and after meeting Jason, Cait and Dory during our meet & greet, I was confident that Finn would be in good hands. They were super flexible with my requested drop off and pickup times, and they even gave me a small bag of homemade dog treats to bring home with Finn when i picked him up. That's was a classy touch!
Highly recommend.
Jason and Caitlin took very good care of my dog. He came home happy and tired. I would definitely book them again!
We really liked Jason's attention with Dex and with us. He took good care of our dog and kept us informed throughout our trip. We will have Dex stay here again and we recommend it.
Great service. I left for 7 days for vacation and my flight got delayed and he waited awake for me to pick up my dogs. Thank you guys
