About Megan

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a small apartment and can't commit to a pet of our own, but we would love to be foster parents to your pet! Two kids in 5th and 3rd grade will be offering lotsa love! Please keep reading to the end of this listing (you'll see there's a code word).

Pet will be home alone when schooltime (8am to 4pm). Pets welcome to sleep on our beds. Our home is on second floor, so your pet won't be able to race outdoors through a partly open door. We live near the dog park at Walter Pierce and Kalorama Park.

During the holidays, we usually care for multiple dogs at a time, so please note if your pet is compatible with that.

For new friends, we may need to have a super quick meet-and-greet -- but a telephone call might suffice.

We can't have any friends that bark more than a couple of yaps on occasion. We live in rowhouse converted to 4 condo units, with poorly insulated walls/floors. One neighbor has his own dog.

We only accept dogs/cats who are fully house-trained, with current vaccinations, and no history of bite injuries. Please be honest and upfront about the possibility of indoor pee accidents or separation/anxiety issues.

We welcome any pet -- cats, bunnies, geckos, snakes, you name it. Posted prices are for dogs, but we can send special pricing for other friends. We are willing to consider checking in on a pet in your home only if within 1-2 blocks of us.

We've selected the "strict" refund policy -- by accepting your reservation, it often means we decline other reservation requests because our slots are full. However, especially for non-holiday timeframes, we're open to making exceptions.

To confirm you've read all this, please use the code word YOSARIAN when first contacting us.

Megan and her children took wonderful care of my dog over the holidays! Zoe got lots of attention and I received several photos. Megan even went to the pet store to buy additional food for Zoe (I miscalculated the amount of food needed for the full stay). Highly recommended!
Megan and her incredible care giving kids were perfect in every way - super easy to work with, very accommodating, and wonderfully attentive to my senior standard poodle, Sebastian. They conducted a thorough but efficient meet-n-greet and then took Sebastian in and made him feel comfortable, which at his age of 9 is no easy task. Furthermore, Sebastian was suffering from an exposed abscess, which Megan and her crew diligently kept clean. I highly recommend this remarkable family if you want to pamper your pooch - they are great!
Megan and her adorable kids dogsat Arya, our 11 month old lab mix, for a week over Christmas break, and I cannot say enough good things about the experience! Megan was very communicative throughout and had clearly thought through how to create the best dogsitting process for us and her family. We received pictures of Arya napping with the kids and playing with the other dogs that they were watching, which made us feel very comfortable as we were vacationing abroad. Arya came home exhausted (a win!) and very happy. We would highly recommend Megan and her kids for dogsitting, and we hope to use them again soon.
Megan and her kids are the most welcoming hosts! Our pup got loads of outdoor time and love, she just had the best time! Couldn't ask for a better experience - just a lovely family. We're looking forward to having Maisie visit again!
Megan and her kids were great!! I could tell how much love and attention Harper got after meeting all 3 of them. They even sent me a cute photo of her daughter and Harper while we were away. Would definitely use them again in the future!!
Megan and her two kids were great hosts. I like that her kids were enthusiastic about playing with our dog. Host is very responsive.
Megan was accommodating when we added a day to our reservation.
Megan was a great host to our dog. We would book with her again.
Megan was a fantastic host! She and her children gave our dog lots of love--we received great photos of them playing together. I could tell that Gunner had a wonderful time. I would absolutely leave Gunner with Megan any time.
Megan was awesome and very accommodating. 2Chainz was very happy when I picked him up.
Megan and her family were terrific with Gigi, my long time old canine pal. Her kids were great, and kept Gigi entertained. I appreciated their efforts all around.
Megan seems like a nice lady but we did not have a good experience with this Vacay host. She wasn't really prepared for our pups arrival as there were small hazardous toys everywhere in the room the dogs were staying in and she was quite agitated we couldn't pick up the dogs sooner. We were so worried because the pups were so sedate the rest of that day we brought them home... =(
All in all, we will not be returning to this host.
Megan was a perfect host for Juno. She was super responsive and accommodating on when she could meet Juno, when I could drop her off and when I could pick her up. It was great to see Juno have a good time with Megan and her kids while I was away.
