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.
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.
