About Robin

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have 40 years of animal experience over moms lifetime. Dogs ranging from 5lbs to 150lbs. We have a small fenced in yard. A park is in walking distance from our home. On a hot day we can fill the doggie pool and go swimming, dry off, then go inside for a treat and a nap. We may also make homemade doggie ice cream, that ALL dogs love .

We can provide 2 walks per day and backyard potty breaks as often as needed. We also take pictures from time to time to show the parents how we are doing. We provide a very relaxed environment. Dogs are welcome on beds and furniture if their parents allow. Did I mention a lot of hugs and kisses all through out the day. Dogs love it here!

Robin was great with both of my dogs. I got daily updates on how they were doing which included pictures. One of the most stress free vacations I've had because I knew my dogs were in good hands.
Robin was great with our 9-year old dog, Lucy. She took her on lots of walks, and was very sensitive to her needs as a geriatric dog. Lucy settled right in!
Robin was wonderful with Comet. She took the time to answer all our questions and concerns. She updated us with pictures during his stay. He must have had a great time with her because he came back happy and healthy. We will definitely use Robin again when we go out of town. Thank you !

My Littile buddy Termite loved his stay with Robin. She is a very caring and loving person and Termite picked up on that right away. I feel safe knowing that Robin is in town to watch Termite if I have to go away. Termite will be back!
Robin was all we could ask for in a host. She came by our house to meet the dogs prior to the appointment. One of our dogs was a 10 week old puppy, with all the potential problems that could create. It was no problem with her.

While we were away she took them to the dog park, and sent us photos and updates. She was always very upbeat. It's very clear she loves dogs, and loves what she does, and took the puppy accidents and mischief all in stride.

If you are anywhere near the Alexandria, VA area, we cannot recommend her highly enough. She will definitely be our go-to in the future.
