About Anath

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your house-trained pet(s) will have the run of our 750-square-foot condo in a historic Northwest-D.C. neighborhood. It's a dog- and cat-friendly complex that backs onto national-park land, hiking trails and other green space.

If you have a cuddler, he or she will have a happy recipient of doggie snuggles here - we love dogs but don't have any. So even pups that don't get along with other dogs can come stay. We recently adopted a cat, but he spends most of his time napping in various hidden locations and ignores dogs.

We work during the day, but one of us works from home so lunchtime walks are no problem. Your dog(s) will also be walked first thing in the morning before I leave for work, and right away upon my return home in the evenings. We also do a pre-bedtime walk. There are periods when we're both out for several hours at a time, but if your pets are OK with this, they'll be the king or queen of the castle while we are gone and can nap on our comfy leather sofas.

Our condo complex is quiet and peaceful, and despite being in D.C. has a very suburban feel. It has lots of doggie-bag stations on the property, so no worries about sending Fido with your own.

*PLEASE NOTE: Due to several recent guest 'accidents,' I now ask that I be reimbursed in the event professional cleaning or replacement of personal items is needed. Itemized bill(s) will be provided.

Anath was very sweet and accommodating. She responded right away to my request for last minute accommodations, even accepting my very late arrival. My dog happily went off with her each time I dropped him off, and enjoyed long walks in nearby Rock Creek Park. Will certainly use her again.
Anath is a super laid-back person and was great with my dog. She texted me daily pictures which I really appreciated. She lives in a cul-de-sac in a super leafy and dog-friendly neighborhood. My 10-year old Scottish Terrier seems to have enjoyed her stay very much, and she LOVED the cushy sofas! She also got along with Anath’s cat just fine – they basically ignored each other. I will be a returning customer and would recommend Anath to my dog loving friends.
Anath has been great and our two dogs felt very comfortable with her and fell into their routine of following her every step. They made friends with the cat, slept in her bed, and ate like they always do. It was truly a home away from home for them.

We would absolutely use her again.

Dexter and Lucy had a great time! Thanks so much for taking such great care of them :)
Anath did a great job looking after my dog! Very easy pick up and drop off and she was good with sending me updates and pictures of my dog's stay.
Anath was great! Although we used DogVacay in the past, we had only used one other host before Anath. She's very laid back and accommodating. Her condo has ample parking in case you're driving to drop off your dog. She has treats for the dog and a GREAT area for walking around the condo (wooded trails and plenty of quiet neighborhood sidewalk). We appreciated the pictures that she sent and were immediately put at ease.

Although we've had our beagle for years, he is a rescue with a few abandonment issues. Anath couldn't be more understanding! We would highly recommend her and, if given the opportunity, would love to have Legal The Beagle stay with her again.
Our two dogs got to stay with Anath and her boyfriend at their new place, which is in an amazingly dog-friendly area of DC. We were nervous about them being in the city because one of our dogs is noise sensitive and the other is very high-energy. However, Anath lives in a great area with lots of green space and a few blocks away from the noise and traffic of the city. They also were very accommodating to us! She made an exception to allow both of our (medium sized) dogs to stay with her, let them have free-range of the house, and took them for long walks and hikes to get all of their energy out. You know your pups had a good time when they come home and sleep the rest of the day.
Lucie had a great time. Anath was great, would highly recommend.
Anath was amazing! She sent pictures and updates all weekend while I was gone and let my dog make herself right at home. I will definitely be calling on her again the next time I need a sitter!!
I am so happy to of found Anath! She was so great with communicating and sending me pictures. Bryant was one happy, tired pup when I picked him up. Looking forward to using her again.
Loved Anath ~ and Gracie did too! She was wonderful and I would definitely use her again.
Another great stay for Zoe.
Anath is great with my dog and always very accomodating. I highly recommend her as a DogVacay host.
This was the first time we have ever left our very sensitive little 4 yr old Yorkie with anyone. Anath was very reassuring and was extremely accommodating in allowing us to bring all the things he is familiar with, and used to having around him, to her place. We were away for 1 week and we communicated with her regularly. She made sure to forward a picture with each communication! Although it took several days for little Halen to get used to his new surroundings, Anath remained patient and tried her best to make him feel at home. We are very grateful to her for that! Anath is a very lovely and professional person and you should feel very comfortable and reassured leaving your pup in her care! Thank you again Anath.
Anath was great. I couldn't take the dogs to her place because one just had surgery and her activity is restricted, so she came to us! She let them out and fed them in the evening and then again in the morning. She came over and met them earlier in the week and was very flexible and easy to schedule. She asked good questions and I could tell she really loves dogs. She was on time to the times we decided would work best for the dogs and sent me pictures!
Anath provided a great home-away-from-home for our pup. She was easy to get in touch with, responded promptly, and kept us updated with text messages and photos.
Anath took well care of our pup. Condo is a bit small for an active breed. Excellent choice I am sure for a small breed.
Anath is great! She always gives lots of feedback about how Ophelia did, and it's easy to see she has a genuine love for dogs.
This is the second time my dog, Louis, has stayed with Anath. She agreed to watch Louis last minute and I am so grateful for that. Louis came back happy and she sent me pics during his vacay. She was even flexible for pick-up time since I was a little late. Anath is a great, reliable sitter and Louis will be staying with her again!
Anath was a wonderful host for Stevie! She was flexible, easygoing, and gave us every confidence that Stevie was in good hands all weekend. She even texted us pictures to reinforce our comfort. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat and we'll definitely use her again!
Anath is fantastic! My dog Suki had another great stay with her this holiday season. I don't even worry anymore because I trust her completely with my pup!
We had a good experience working with Anath and would recommend her for others looking for a host for their pup.
I set up a meet-n-greet with Anath and arranged for my dog to stay with her for a long weekend. The whole experience was very easy. I get nervous leaving my dog with someone for the first time. She was great and very reassuring. She's a former dog owner so she was confident and calm about all of my concerns and was patient when I was explaining everything to her ad nauseam. She kept me updated during the weekend with text photos and my dog came back happy and healthy. I won't hesitate to drop him off with Anath again when I go away.
Obie had a great vacay with Anath! He came back happy and healthy, and is ready to go with Anath again next time.
The Dog Vacay website was so easy to use and Anath was very responsive to our initial inquiry for a meet and greet. Dutch had a great stay with Anath. We received both text and email updates during our trip...including photos! Dutch liked Anath and is looking forward to her next visit.
Anath was excellent with my dog and very accomidating. She was flexible with me dropping off India earlier because of incliment weather, sent several photo updates, and I would absolutely ask her to care for India in the future. 5 stars.
Anath is a fantastic sitter - so good that I extended my dog's (Suki's) stay with her for 9 days instead of 5! Suki had a great time and was really not that excited to see me... a sign that she wanted to stay!
Anath was a fantastic dog sitter! My plans kept changing and she was totally flexible when I needed to extend my dog, Suki's, stay with her. Then when I went to pick Suki up 9 days later, my dog was definitely not excited to be going back home with me... I could tell she had a fantastic time. I highly recommend Anath!!!
