About Rosemary

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
All at this time I am no longer watching pups as I am planning to move back to San Antonio Texas. I want to thank all of the amazing pups I had the pleasure of sitting thank you all for all the great memories for my fur babies and mine.


Hello everyone, I am located in the Shirlington neighborhood. I live in a community where just about every condo or townhouse has a dog. We are directly across the street from Shirlington Dog Park and a few blocks from the Baynard Dog Park and the Four Mile Walking Trails for plenty of long and short walks.

About my dogs, Mikolos (Newfie/Chow Mix) is very gentle and playful as is Callie Cavachon). If your pup has any medical restrictions or is older, no need to worry Mikolos and Callie will understand and snooze with your pup. However if your pet is playful Callie will be the first to tire him/her out, then Mikolos will join to play as well.

While in my care I pride in reinforcing all prior training with your four legged pal. If your pup is still in the training stage I ensure to continue their training. If there is any additional training you would like, please do not hesitate to ask.

Ask about the Military/Veteran and/or multiple pet discount.


Puppies: 0-6 months will incur an additional $10.00 fee

Accident prone: If your pet is accident prone, please let me know ahead of time. There will be a small additional fee for these pups.

Thank you!

Our dog Marty is a big 120 pound golden retriever who loves to play. He enjoyed the companionship with the labrador at Rosemary's. There are toys to play with indoors, and a nearby huge dog park in Shirlington. I picked up Marty on Thanksgiving evening, but if he had stayed over night, he probably would have enjoyed an adventure at the park.
Rosemary is great and made me feel at ease when leaving Gotham for the week. Her dogs are great playmates and Gotham had lots of fun!
Our dog had a great time and was well cared for! The only reason we didn't give 5 stars is that there is no yard to play in. It wasot outside so our pup didn't get much outside time but she wouldn't have wanted to be out there anyway!
Rose is just the best. Our high energy dog is so happy when he is with her, and he comes home exhausted. She sends great pictures and updates. We will be using her again and again!
Rose was amazing, as always. This was my dog's second stay with her. He came home happy and tired. We will be using her again, I highly recommend her!
She is the best!
Rosemary is fantastic!!! She is extremely easy to work with and I trust her completely to take great care of my Vizsla. The only issue is my dog might decide she'd rather be at Rosemary's house than mine ;)
Rosemary was amazing! This was my first time leaving my puppy for a week. She made me comfortable by responding to my texts and sending photos. I felt safe knowing that my dog was with her and would gladly leave him there again!
She is great with our pup and her dog is very well behaved.
You can't ask for a better host than Rosemary! Our very energetic 18 month old goldendoodle stayed with Rosemary for two weeks while we were out of the country and she did such an amazing job with him. We received frequent photo updates, she helped administer allergy meds, and she went above and beyond to help correct Dexter's negative behaviors. Dexter has been an absolute angel since we picked him up and we can't thank her enough. We will definitely be booking with Rosemary again! Thank you!
Rosemary watched our dog over a holiday weekend. She was very generous about pick up and drop off options to accommodate our travel schedule. While in her care, she sent pictures of our dog and tried a new technique to improve walks. She is a dog expert!
Rosemary has been fantastic with my pup. I was a little nervous to leave him as he is nervous around strangers and has crate aggression. Rosemary has no fear and was wonderful around him during the meet and greet. I received a bunch of pictures while I was away and I will definitely be using Rosemary again!
I was very pleased with the service Rosemary provided. I would definitely use her again, or recommend her service to others!
Rosemary is the best dog vacay sitter I have ever used! She was so sweet and very loving towards my dog. She kept me updated daily and sent me a ton of pictures and even a video! I highly recommend her and will book with her again!
Max and Bastian had such a great time, and we got some really great pictures of the boys from Rosemary while we were away.
It was my first time leaving my puggle, Desmo, with Pawfects! Rosemary was so friendly and accommodating and Desmo had a great time! She doesn't mind if I drop him off early in the morning or pick him up late at night. I loved getting the pictures on the website and every time I checked in, she always answered and told me how he was doing. Since then, I have booked 2 other times. I would totally recommend Pawfects!!
Meeko always has the best time when he stays with Rosemary, and comes home exhausted from all of the play time. Looking forward to using her services again and again!
rosemary was great with paddy, and so were the other dogs! he had a seizure (which isn't completely abnormal) while he stayed with rosemary, but she took good care of him and he returned to normal very quickly. rosemary took pictures to update us on what paddy was doing. all in all, a great stay for paddington~
Rosemary was incredible with Bailey. I have never seen her happier! And she sent me many pictures. Also, Rosemary is very flexible with pickup and dropoffs times, which is great when I am traveling. I definitely plan to use her in the future.
Rosemary & her sweet dog Mikolos kept my two babies company during my weekend trip out of town. Rosemary was understanding, flexible, and extremely good at understanding the needs of dogs. She sent me many pictures of my babies & they got to play, run, and cuddle all weekend. Couldn't be a better getaway! Thanks Rosemary!!
Our former dog sitter moved to Georgia and I was so worried about finding a sitter that Sadie would repsond to. Rosemary is so great. She has lots of experience and knows how to handle all types of dogs. I'm planning on using her as much as possible.
Rosemary is an absolutely wonderful host. My boss booked me on a last-minute work trip out-of-state, and after checking with my usual DogVacay hosts (who were fully booked up), I found Rosemary, who very kindly agreed to host my dog Samson for a week and was very understanding about my open-ended travel schedule. She is extremely knowledgeable about dogs and how to care for them, and her medic experience in the military is truly an asset; Samson was recovering from an infected neck wound, and she knew exactly what do to continue treating it and keep him feeling comfortable without making him wear the cone of shame. Rosemary sent plenty of pictures every day, and unlike some other hosts, she made sure that the pictures were clear; she was even able to get Samson to sit still for some great group photos with her dog Mikolos and the other pups she was hosting. She took plenty of walks with the dogs, played fetch with them, and made sure they were happy and exercised. When I returned from my trip, Rosemary answered all my questions and spoke with me at length about how well Samson did, any anxiety issues he had, and how he got along with the other dogs. She even noticed how sensitive and dry his skin was and gave me some tips on how to help him, as well as let me know what to tell Samson's vet about his condition. When it was time to leave, Samson actually wanted to follow her back to her home. I even forgot something at her house, and she kindly drove to my apartment to drop it off with me. She is truly fantastic, and I would love for Samson to stay with Rosemary again when I'm away. You can rest assured that your dog is in caring and capable hands with Rosemary as a host.
Rosemary was excellent! She sent us plenty of photos and videos throughout the weekend to let us know that Goose was having a great time! Her love for dogs is obvious and I would definitely use her again.
Rosemary was amazing with our dogs! She sent us pictures and kept us updated during the night. We will be using Dogvacay and Rosemary again!
Rosemary was super great with my pup! She is certainly a dog person, through and through! Loved all the pictures and updates. Def would recommend for future stays!
Overall it was an awesome experience! Rosemary was super warm and welcoming! Her communication was outstanding.. she sent us updates & photos!! She was super flexible with drop off and pickup time. It is obvious that she truly cares about her guests (aka: the dogs).

*jjWe have a 8 year old basset hound that has a dehydrated personality of a 80 year old. It takes him awhile to warm up to anyone & Rosemary bonded with him immediately. It’s a wonderful piece of mind that we have ‘Winslow’ care options. Rosemary has made our contact list and is on speed dial for Winslow’s next vacay
We couldn't have asked for a better place for Lucy to stay while we were out of town. All of Rosemary's pictures of Lucy made us feel at ease. We will definitely be contacting her again!
My dog had a great time with Rosemary. She was very flexible on drop off and pick up times. Defintely recommend and will defintely use again.
Rosemary and Miklos are terrific hosts! Our lab, Hudson, stayed with her for a long weekend and looked like he had a blast the whole time. Rosemary was very responsive and sent many photo updates throughout the weekend. We would hope to have the opportunity to have Hudson stay with her again!
