Hello! My name is Anjali, my husband's name is Steve, and our sweet pup is Rana*. We've both owned/cared for dogs and other pets for much of our lives. I absolutely love animals and I look forward to giving the same loving care to your dog as I do with Rana.
We live in a dog-friendly high-rise apartment building in the Court House neighborhood of Arlington. And because our apartment is small (744 sq. ft), I prefer to care for small-sized dogs, so as to give them as much space to roam and play as possible.
By day, I am a consultant working in a D.C. office Monday through Thursday. I would prefer to care for pets on the weekends so that I can spend as much time with him/her as possible. But if you do request boarding during the week and I happen to work that day(s), I do ask that your dog is fully house-trained and completely comfortable without human interaction throughout the day. Sweet Rana will be there, of course! (Please note that during the week and depending on the day, Steve and I may very well be gone for UP TO 11 hours so please consider that when booking with me. If we know that we will both be gone for any longer than that, Steve or I can make it a point to come home for lunch to give potty breaks/walks).
I have a fairly active and outdoors-y lifestyle. In general, Rana and I walk 30-45 minutes every day (sometimes twice a day, depending on the weather), whether via trails or through the residential areas of the neighborhood.
Boarding during holiday weekends/periods incur an additional $15/night. Holidays and holiday weekends/periods include: New Year’s Eve & Day, Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving Eve & Day, and Christmas Eve & Day.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions. I look forward to taking care of your fur baby!
*Rana is a 3 year old, 10-lb. Chihuahua-Corgi mix. At first blush, she's quite shy and nervous around other dogs, especially if they are rambunctious. After a while though, she's down to play!
