About Doug

My wife and I are retired. We live on two acres with a barn just outside Reston.

We've had dogs since we were first married (48 years) and consider ourselves to be really good with dogs.

In 2013 we lost a Redbone Coonhound who was the first Redbone to ever get an AKC obedience title. A big deal considering the breed isn't known for "wanting to please." Took us a while but in December, we adopted, Ginger, a 9 year old Plott Hound. She's about 75 pounds and you'd never guess she was 9. Gets along with all the other family dogs and does well meeting dogs on a walk or in the dog park.

I also walk and train dogs at the Friends of Homeless Animals in Aldie, Va. All breeds.

In general, we're looking for mid-sized dogs (20-60 pounds), house trained, and reasonably well mannered. We would want to meet your dog before we arrange a booking. We will only host dogs from one family at a time to ensure your pooch has as comfortable and stress free a stay as possible.

We tend to be around the house most of the time but do leave for errands and stuff so the dog would be alone on occasion.

Great experience. Doug and Regan kept in touch & let us know how the dogs were doing.
Doug and Regan are a lovely couple who obviously care for dogs. I've used them twice to care for my two rescue dogs, and they took wonderful care of them! I rarely traveled because I never wanted to leave them in a kennel, and I wanted to make sure that they were together. It was priceless to be able to travel and not worry about my pups, knowing that they were extremely well taken care of. I even think both my pups were sad to leave and come home (which is due to the great care they received!) I highly recommend them!
We brought Hudson, a mix Chow/Lab and Natasha, a mix Chow/Bassett to Doug and Regan for close to a weeks visit. They were extremely open and friendly and both our dogs had a really good time with them. A beautiful home that exudes a warmth as soon as you walk in that both our dogs no doubt felt and a very large yard with many trails in back made for a successful and worry-free week for us. Many thanks !

As I went to pick up my dog from staying with Doug, I noticed he was standing by Doug and not me. I think he would have preferred to stay a few more days. Great job, true dog lovers and caring family!
Unfortunately we could not take our dog to a two weeks trip to California. As our dog, an Irish Red Setter, is more than important to us, we looked for a great place for him. With support of the Dog Vacay Team, we finally got in touch with Doug and his wife Regan and immediately after our first meeting we knew that we found the right place. Shamus had a great time, was treated like being part of the family and Doug send us many pictures and videos of their “day-experiences”. When we finally picked Shamus up, we recognized that he was slightly sad – the best evidence for us that he had a great time. Many thanks to Regan and Doug, it is our privilege to know you and we will definitely bring Shamus back for hosting.
Wonderful people who obviously love dogs!!!
Wonderfully caring people! My three dogs were extremely well adjusted and lived their visit. Great yard, lots of treats, and huge love!
Lulu and Maggie had a great time with Doug and his wonderful wife. Although the doggies where happy to see us, they were clearly sad to leave Doug's home where they were so well taken care of and loved. We got some wonderful pictures and a funny video of Maggie talking to Doug while we were away.

We were very pleased that the dogs could stay with a couple that were excited to have dogs around again.

Lulu and Maggie are looking forward to their next visit!
