About Becky

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**Please read our entire profile so you're familiar with our policies.**
**NOTE: We are expecting a baby this summer and will not be taking any guest dogs after Memorial Day.**

Give your pup a vacation in dog-friendly Del Ray, Alexandria! We live in a beautiful, quiet section of town in a two-story home with a fenced yard. We would love to have your dog come and stay with us.

We've both been living with and caring for dogs our entire lives. Now we share our home with Walter, a foxhound with a very laid-back personality. As you can see in our photos, he spends most of his time napping on the couch - but there's plenty of room for your pup to join in the cuddles!

When your dog comes to our house, he or she will be treated like part of the family. Plenty of time will be available for romping, sunbathing, chasing squirrels, and playing catch in the yard. We also plan for at least two 15-minute walks through the neighborhood each day (though we are happy to adapt this schedule based on each dog's individual needs). Of course, lots of time will be spent snuggling and getting pets as well.

We're home almost all of the time on weekends to pamper your pet with lots of attention. If you board with us on a weekday, we will likely be out of the house at the office for about 8-9 hours, so your dog must be able to make it that long alone in the house. (However, sometimes we work from home to keep the pups company; at least one of us is usually home on Wednesday and Fridays.) If your dog likes to be crated while home alone, bring the crate over, along with any favorite toys or treats.

We're happy to send you updates while you're away (texts and/or emails), including photos of your pet having a great time!

All breeds and sizes are welcome, but we cannot host dogs that display aggressive behavior or that aren't housebroken. All pups must be flea and tick free, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

We typically only take one dog at a time, so once we've got one booking for a particular night, we mark our calendar as "unavailable." However, feel free to inquire with us to see if we can make special accommodations for you.

Please contact us with any questions! We can't wait for your furry friends to pay us a visit!

Becky and Joe are great. We had a meet and greet prior to booking to make sure Rue was comfortable, and then for the actual stay we received updates and came home to a happy, well-looked after puppy. They were flexible with pick-up and drop off and came home to a happy, well-looked after puppy. They were flexible with pick-up and drop off times as well. We hope to book with them again. Thank you!

Griffin has a fabulous time with Becky, Joe and Walter. He had a very relaxed vacation. Everything went smoothly during the meet and greet and at drop-off and pick-up. We appreciated the care provided and would highly recommend this family!
Becky was great with Brady! She updated us daily and Brady seemed to have a great time at her house.
