About Lyn L and David

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
A loving home for your four legged family member is exactly what we want to provide! We host only ONE dog at a time. If your pack(family) has more than one pup, then please send us a note. We will definitely take care of your siblings. We work from home so are here to keep your pup company in a cage-free home environment!

REPEAT CUSTOMERS: Please contact us for a customized discount rate on your next stay.

NEW: We offer overnight stays at YOUR home. Yes, this is a new service we will offer within 3 miles of our home. We'll come just prior to dinner/time and stay until 6:30AM. If you require daycare services, that is additional. Please send us an inquiry for this new service.

I wish I was living a dog's life...eating, playing and sleeping! Our dogs have the best life! Alex and Nellie, our resident dog hosts invite yours to join our pack while you are at work, away for a brief weekend getaway or gone on an extended vacation! We will incorporate your precious pup into our daily routines and in all areas of our home.

We will send you photos, texts, and emails updates of your precious family member on a DAILY basis! We know how important it is to know how they are doing.

We have done research, used various doggy daycares, and had family and friends watching our precious pups. We know what is best for our pups, and we hope to extend that hospitality and experience to your pups. We are active dog rescue volunteers for local dog rescues. We have experience handling small to large dogs. We may have a foster dog in house while your pup is visiting, so please keep that in mind.

Our only requirement is that your precious pup is house-broken, and dog-friendly.

We are fortunate enough to work from home, so your precious pup will have company all day! With the exception of a few errands here and there, they will have company day and night. We are a crate-free home but if your pup feels comfortable in their crate, then we can provide. Safety is our # 1 priority, so we always walk our guests on safe leashes. We have experience administering meds and feeding to your pups preference. We feed our dogs a raw food diet, so we have knowledge of various forms of feeding.

Our home is located in a safe neighborhood cul de sac. We have a 6 foot fenced backyard with locks on both gates. The yard is tiered so there is plenty of space to run and play! Check out the photos of past guests! We encourage outdoor romping and playing as long as your precious pup is ok with that. Our dogs are never left outdoors unattended and we treat your precious pup the same way! All residents pups and guests will have 'run of the house' and will be sleeping together in the bedrooms upstairs! You can bring your pups beds if they feel comfy on their beds. If not, we have beds to share!

We volunteer for animal rescues in Northern Virginia. We love all kinds of dogs. We may also be fostering a dog at the same time as your visit, so please send us a note first to confirm availability.


Important notes:
All dogs should be up to date on vaccines (Rabies, Bordetella, DHLP) and heartworm preventative and flea/tick control and negative record on your latest fecal tests. We will require a copy of your vaccine records when you drop off your pup.

Your dog will need to be spayed or neutered.

A ‘Meet and Greet’ is required. This will allow the dogs to get acquainted before your precious pup’s paw-cation.

No puppies please. Unfortunately we don't have the proper accommodations for dogs less than 1 year.

Please note: Drop offs anytime after noon on arrival day. Pickups are anytime prior to 5:00 PM on departure day. If these times are not convenient, we can provide a custom quote to accommodate your schedule.

Lyn and David were simply wonderful with our older GSD girl when she stayed with them for a week. Our easily stressed pup was clearly very relaxed with her new human and canine companions.

They kept us updated with photos and videos each day and it made us so happy to see her many sleeping spots, her outings to their lovely backyard and how she enjoyed her meals. Their dogs are wonderful calm companions and are very easy going.

It was a great experience and we are extremely happy to have found our precious girl a safe, quiet and comfortable home to vacation in.

So thankful we found Lyn & David! When our dog stayed with Lyn & David (& their 2 cute pups) I knew she wasn't just hanging out at someone else's house -- she was being actively cared for by people who love dogs. It was perfect for our goofy Gogo, who is a somewhat insecure pup. I fully admit, it's hard for us to leave our dog with someone else, but Lyn & David gave us enormous peace mind and we're so thankful!

I couldn't get the stars to stay lit for the "star rating" so in case they didn't work I want to note Lyn & David definitely deserve 5 stars!!!

Lyn and David are incredibly kind, caring and attentive and our black lab was immediately welcomed into their pack. It was clear that our girl had a great stay and enjoyed her time playing and relaxing with Lyn, David and their two pups. Thank you!
Lyn and David were amazing with our dog Taran!
We recently moved to Virginia and had never left Taran with anyone except our good friend and faithful dog sitter back in California. During our meet and great it was obvious that Lyn and David love dogs and I felt comfortable leaving ours with them. Taran is a "people" dog, he likes to be were the people are and they provided a great environment for him. Lyn sent texts and pictures regularly to let us know how he was doing. When we leave town again we'll intrust Taran to them!

Another great stay for Daisy with Lyn and David! She loves to see them and always comes back a happy girl. Highly recommend this host! Always a great experience! We'll continue to come back.
Lyn and David did a fantastic job watching Ziggy, our 3 year old German Sheppard/beagle mix. I truly felt as though Ziggy had a vacation as he got to play with Nellie & Alex (the hosts' dogs) in their large backyard, was given a few treats, and even some of Lyn homemade frozen yogurt. Lyn and Dave made me feel comfortable with the entire process and sent me tons of photos and updates while I was away. I will definitely be using them again for future boarding. I highly recommend them!

Lyn and David were amazing! I recently had my 14 month old rescue pointer, Daisy, stay with their pack over the holidays. Tremendous hosts! Daily updates and pictures, Daisy loved her time with them. Large yard which allowed my high energy girl the room to run with their pack. I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in Dogvacay in the area. We'll be back! Could not be more pleased with my first dogvacay experience.

Lyn and Dave were great with Bella, she had a great time and was almost sad to come home. Their 2 dogs are great and she had a great time with them playing the in the back yard. They provided many updates and took some wonderful pictures and gave them to us on a CD. I would recommend them to anyone.

Our 14 month-old golden retriever Teddy stayed with Lyn and David and their pack for three nights. We had an initial meet and greet and were very impressed with their efforts to get to know everything about our dog in advance and their emphasis on safety. Teddy got along well with their dogs Alex and Nellie and Lyn and David certainly treated him as a member of their family. They even took him on the Alzheimer's Walk with them (after asking our permission first). Lyn sent us many reports and pictures of Teddy playing ball or just playing with their gang, and it was obvious to us that they spent a lot of time with him and he was comfortable and happy with them. We would certainly leave Teddy with them again.
