About Colleen

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are happy to host child-friendly doggies, as we have a toddler.

My husband and I are dog lovers; we have two pugs, and would be happy to welcome your dogs while you are away. Your pooch will receive the same loving care we give our own! We'll send daily photos and updates so you can see how your pup's visit is going.

During your dog's stay, he or she will be part of our family. If our calendar shows as available, we'll be home most of the day with your pup.

We have hosted dogs since 2012 through DogVacay, and have fostered rescue dogs in the past as well. Our home is on a quiet street in Falls Church, VA. We have a secluded backyard, comfy furniture, and tons of toys for your dog to enjoy. We take our pugs and guest pups for several daily walks and outings around the neighborhood and parks. In case of emergency, it's just a 5 minute drive to the nearest 24 hour emergency vet (VCA SouthPaws).

Please note, our yard is not fenced in.

Our availability calendar is up to date.

Thanks for checking us out!

Colleen is the best. She is so kind and spot on She sent me a pic immediately of my dog. Seems to really love dogs. Will def be using her services as long as she is available. Thank you Colleen!!
Our pug was right at home and enjoyed playing with Gus and Wolfie. Colleen was great with reservations, communicating with us to work out drop off and pick up times, and listening to us on instructions. We can be nervous pet parents - or so we are told. She sent us a picture of our happy pug and we have already booked another stay.
Appreciate that she took a last-minute booking!
Colleen and her family took great care of my dog while I was away for a long weekend! She was very flexible with the pick up and drop off times, and sent lots of pictures and updates throughout the weekend.
Another fantastic experience with Colleen and family! Brisket is just the happiest little Pug when she comes home from Colleen's, and I can't be more grateful for that. Thank you!!
Colleen and her family are our favorite pet sitters! Our Pug Brisket is so happy when she goes there that I'm pretty sure she doesn't even know we are gone. :) I can't recommend Colleen enough!
As always, Colleen was a fantastic host for our Pug Brisket. She is our first choice for dog care. Brisket always comes home tired and happy. In fact, I can hear her snoring right now in the other room. :) Thanks Colleen and family!!
Colleen is awesome! She took great care of my two pups overnight, and they had an awesome time! She sent me a text and photo during the evening to let me know how they were doing, which I really appreciated. I will certainly be booking with Colleen again!
Colleen is a fabulous pet sitter! This is the second time she's housed Brisket, our Pug. Briskie has the best time there! Colleen sends us text updates, which I absolutely love. We always come home to a happy, tired Puggie. Thanks Colleen!
Colleen and her husband were awesome. She was responsive to planning emails and texts the day of. I felt very comfortable leaving Olive there and she was tired when she came home. Colleen sent me a cute photo of Olive looking happy during her stay. I would recommend them for sure!!
Colleen, Sean, Wolfie and Gus were stellar hosts for my Pug Brisket! Their house is warm and inviting, and I was very comfortable leaving Brisket with them. Colleen sent me text and photo updates, which I loved! When we picked Brisket up, she was so tired she started snoring in the car before we got to the end of their street. She definitely had a fantastic time, and I would use Colleen again in a heartbeat!
Bella and Perogi had a great time with Colleen and her pugs. They came back exhausted and happy! She kept us updated daily with pictures and texts, which were greatly appreciated.
Ellie had a great time staying for the weekend. Colleen kept me up to date each day on their activities and even posted pictures. Would highly recommend.
Colleen responded quickly to my questions and her availability to watch our 2 dogs. During the stay, she updated me daily with pictures and comments on how they were doing. I felt very comfortable that my dogs were in a loving environment.
