I absolutely love dogs (I view them as family) and your furry friend will be well taken care of while staying with me! I've had dogs ranging from Papillon to Rottweiler in my life and have had experience training and taking care of them for the past 15 years.
I am also an approved foster with City Dogs Rescue in DC, and fostered a few times and attended dog training sessions through the organization.
I live in dog-friendly and cozy town home, with a small garden patch and plenty of neighborhood parks nearby for walks! In addition, my wonderful responsible roommate also love dogs, so your furry friend will have endless care and attention. But since it's a unit connected to other homes, we have found that dogs happiest here are those who are fully house trained and don't bark. I also can only watch 1 dog at a time, so your dog will get all of my attention.
Our home is clean with lounge areas for the dog. Food is never left out or accessible in the kitchen so your dog is safe, and dogs are welcome on the couches (if you allow that at home). Pups can sleep where they are comfortable, We will use your crate if your dog prefers it (I have experience crate training), as many do for sleeping or just relaxing. Plenty of places for walks and runs outdoors in our neighborhood (Shaw/Logan Circle), pet friendly neighborhood spots, and space to play and relax at home.
I work a standard 9am-5pm job in downtown DC, so pickup and drop-off times during the week have to be during the mornings and evenings. During weekdays, I will be available to give endless attention to your pup outside of working hours. During weekends, I will be at home to spoil your dog other than running a few errands (1-2 hour outings).
Look forward to welcoming your dog to our home.
*** Additional fees and rate info:
Please note, if you are unable to pick up your dog by 8:30 am (weekdays) or 10am (weekends) of the last day of the visit, you will be charged a $15 late pick-up rate. Pickups after 6pm will be charged $20.
Holiday weekends will have an additional charge of $10/day added to my standard rate.
