8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!! My husband and I enjoy the company of dogs and we find it hard to believe that we can help others by taking care of them. We have a very flexible schedule so we are able to spend a large part of the day with the guest we take in. I have been caring for dogs for over 10 years. First, with some of my own pets growing up and later on with my sister's and friend's dogs.
We have a small fence yard for them to play but if that is not big enough, we also have a dog park within walking distance. Also, guests are welcome to walk freely around our basement apartment, plus they have a room of their own where they can play. On a typical day we walk our guests for an hour or two half hour walks, or we might walk to the nearby dog park or sometimes we go for long walks and runs to a nearby lake. There are several options available for guest on long stays so that they can have some variety.
One of us will be home for most of the day so you can be assured that your pet will get lots of pampering, attention and several walks a day.
Before we can confirm a vacay spot it would be great if we can meet first, this way we can discuss any special instructions about the your pet's preferences when it comes to eating and behavior.
Some of the services we provide are over night stays, walks and pick up and drop off.
Please note: Boarding Rate is for a 24-hour period (including overnight). We understand that human travel plans don't always match up to a 24-hour period, so we will provide a two hour grace period for pick ups. Additional fees may apply if you are not able to pick up within the grace period. We are looking forward to helping you take care of your pups.
Additional Services:
Monthly Boarding is available, We take care of you pup while you are at work, Pick up and Drop off available. Inquire for monthly rates.

Very easy and she is very responsive!
Ranger had a great time with Elisa and Luis ! They have a nice yard for dogs to play in , and we received frequent status reports, including video and photos
Elisa was great! She kept our pup happy, sent us regular photo updates, and was very friendly and easy to work with. Would gladly rely on her again when we need someone to watch our pup.
Elisa is so easy to work with and my little Lady had a great time with her. She is very quick to respond even when my trip was postponed due to flight delays. Lady had a good time and was nice and tired when I picked her up.
Elisa did a great job with my beagle, spur. She sent me picture updates everyday. He came home happy and well cared for. We would definitely book with her again.
I have used Elisa on several occasions, she is great!
It was such a comfort to know that Bobby was safe and well cared for while we were gone on such a long trip. Elisa sent us a picture or video once a day to let us see our little guy, which was great. As usual, I can't say enough good things!
Elisa took great care of our boys while we were out of town for the evening. So glad that we know they're in good hands while we're gone.
Our boys had a great time, as usual! We are so thankful to have Elisa as our sitter.
Another great stay! We can't thank Elisa enough for the great care she takes of our little man!
Elisa was simply amazing with our puppy! She sent updates throughout his stay, and we felt super comfortable with the care she gave him. We'll definitely come back to Elisa. Thanks again for everything!!!
Always a great experience
Albi had a great time with Elisa and I received daily videos and pictures of her.
Great job with biscuit!
Elisa went WAY out of her way to make make Starlet feel comfortable in a strange place. She was super flexible when we had a problem that made us late for pickup and obviously doted on our dog as well as the other dog(s?) that were there at that time. Can't recommend her highly enough!
It was the second stay at Elisa's and Chester came back happy. Appreciated the video updates. Elisa is really sweet and goes out of her way to be responsive. Thank you Elisa and we'll be back!
Elsa was great - very flexible and she took great care of Stella.
I'm always happy to send my Zach to Elisa.
Elisa is amazing! I will absolutely have our pup stay with her again and would recommend her to others.

Elisa was very welcoming of my kids to come over before the stay to meet her and see where our doggie would be while we were away. And while we were gone she made them so happy by posting videos of our pup out for walks playing with one of her other visitors. When we picked him up, he was very happy with her and well cared for.
We are from out of town and Elisa was so helpful and easy to work with. She sent us multiple pictures and videos and we could tell our dog was having so much fun! She made our first DogVacay experience wonderful and we'll definitely book with her again when we visit the DC area.
Our Mimi seemed very happy after her stay with Elisa. She sent pictures or videos everyday and was very responsive.
For my dog's first visit with Elisa, she sent me videos everyday. My dog looked so happy, which of course made me happy.

Elisa was friendly and communication was seamless.

I would recommend her and will definitely be bringing my dog to her again.
This is my second time using Dog Vacay. My first experience was great and this one was just as wonderful. Lady was very comfortable and that made my trip much better. I will def be back to book again!

Elisa is so very kind and easy to work with.
Elisa took great care of our Caroline. She took videos and sent them to me.
I used Elisa for the first time last Sunday. My dog is nearly blind and 12 years of age. for years I've used a trusted sitter but he is moving so I was searching to find a replacement whom I could trust with my sweet Bridgie. I feel like I did find a replacement with Elisa -- gentle, responsible and responsive. Will definitely be using her again. Nan
Elisa was great to work with! She was very prompt in replying to me the through out the weekend. She kept me up to date with Ralph's well being with pictures and videos! There was also another dog there for Ralph to play with. There was also an enclosed backyard which was great I would definitely use Elisa again! !
Ginger was in good hands with Elisha. She and Jose took great care of her with walks and a visit to the Hyattsville Dog Park, We will definitely use her again next time in the DC area.
Elisa did a wonderful job taking care of my precious puppy! Everything went really smoothly. Because I don't have a car, she came to my place for the meet and greet. She also came to pick up my dog and dropped her off at the end of her stay for a very reasonable extra fee. She sent me photos and a video during the week. My dog obviously had a great time and was returned happy and healthy. I would highly recommend Elisa!
My dogvacay experience with Elisa was my first dogvacay reservation and she superseded my expectations. She sent photos and videos daily and always responded quickly to messages. My dog was happy and energetic when I picked her up which further let me know that she was left in great hands. I will definitely schedule my future reservations with Elisa!
Zach enjoyed his stay with ELISA. She was great in communicating with me throughout the trip. She send status updates about zach including pictures and video. It was nice knowing he was taken care of and having fun playing with other dogs. I would definitely use her services again.
This was my first time letting a complete stranger take care of my baby Choco. Despite my initial concerns, I knew Elisa would take care of Choco with much love and fun and care as soon as I met her for the meet-n-greet. I was away for about a week during spring break and Elisa made sure that I knew how Choco was doing every day. I made a special request to let Choco meet other dogs and it seemed like Choco really had fun while I was away! She is very knowledgeable and friendly and I would definitely work with her again.
Zoë enjoys staying with Elisa!
Zoë was recovering from surgery and Elisa took great special care !,
Elisa is awesome! She sent me pictures and updates so that I could see how he was doing. I could tell when I picked him up that he was very happy with her and I am just so very happy that I have found a 2nd home for my little baby when we are out of town!!
Elisa was so great with my two little ones! they didn't miss us at all!! She kept me updated with pictures and even videos!! My dogs are very spoiled and I know that Elisa give them all they need! They were so happy all the time!
We will definitely come back!!
Elisa kept our dogs entertained and safe. We were so happy to receive photo and video updates throughout our trip. Even when I miscommunicated the handoff instructions for the dogs, Elisa was patient and stayed in constant contact until our friend was able to pick them up.

I cannot recommend Elisa enough. She was fantastic and showed great care for our boys.
Lucy seemed very well cared by Elisa while we were away. Lucy got her walks (even in the snow and ice cold weather), medications, and attention and was a happy girl.
Elisa was excellent -- Percy had a great time. She sent pictures everyday and e-mailed with questions. Highly recommend using her.
Very helpful with my last minute reservation and flexibility -- my (high maintenance girl will stay with Elisa again for sure --)-
Zoë enjoyed her stay!
Dexter had a great time with Elisa. She is very knowledgeable and very caring with Dexter. She offered dog daycare service at my home. She is very efficient and punctual. We got picture updates while we were gone which is great to put our minds at ease that our little guy is taken care of while we were away. Will be using her services soon. highly recommended.
Elisa was a great host for our new dog Chloe. She was very responsive through the whole process and provided pictures of Chloe during our three day trip. As a new rescue, Chloe is a very shy and nervous dog, even with us, but she was actually more relaxed when we came back from our trip and that speaks volumes at Elisa's ability to make her feel at home. We will definitely use her in the future!
Nice caring host. She took good care of my Bella while on a 10 day vacation.
Elisa was great with Blaze... she sent us pictures everyday to keep us updated with Blaze.
Awesome sitter! Would definitely recommend!
Once again, Elisa took great care of Bandit and Bob! Very thankful that we found her!
I love Eliza G and so does my dog Roxie! She keep Roxie for two nights when I had to go out of town for work. She kept me updated and share pictures of their walks together. I will definitely be using Eliza G again!
Elisa and her husband took great care of Bandit over Thanksgiving! Will definitely be seeing them again!
