About Sophia

I'm an animal lover and I grew up with dogs. I raised my two Shih Tzus Coco and Simsim since they were 2 months old, they are now 9 and 8 years old. My dogs are very friendly with other dogs, having other dogs come and stay in the house is like a play date for them.

I have a big house and a big back yard for the dogs to run around and play. My back yard is fenced and faces Seneca Creek State Park and has a lot of shade for the dogs to run around safely, play and relax. I've been hosting dogs for my family, friends and neighbors for 8 years before I became a sitter at Dogvacay, I hosted six different breeds of dogs, varying in size during the holidays many times. I work from home and my husband works from home most of the time, so there is always someone here for the dogs. Dogs have all the freedom in the house to play and sleep on any couch or chair they desire. My husband and I enjoy playing with the dogs, watching the dogs play off leash in the back yard is a joy for the Pawtel family.

All dogs must be fully potty trained, neutered or spayed and vaccinated, must be on a veterinary approved flea medication to visit. For the safety and comfort of guest dogs and my own dogs, I don't accept aggressive dogs.

Pick-up and drop-off times are 24 hours a day at no extra charge. Every day includes 3 walks plus unlimited indoor and outdoor playtime. Meet-n-Greet will take place in Quince Orchard Valley Park, it's a dog friendly community park in a residential area with a small parking lot, located at 12015 Suffolk Terrace, which is a half mile away from my house, I will give you a tour of my back yard and house right after.

I offer a 10% discount for new customers and multiple dogs a 30% off discount on the second dog, a 50% off discount on the third dog. Customers who booked multiple nights for more than 3 nights will receive a 10% off discount for the next stay; customers also receive a 10% off discount when a new customer you refer to Pawtel in Gaithersburg makes their first stay. Discount is limited to one per customer, not valid with any other offer, please ask the discount applies to you by clicking "Ask Host A Question". All the discounts are NOT valid during the holidays.

Please always message me to check availability if you see we are booked, since I also offer day care service, so the calender may not reflect that. Please also message me with drop off/pick up time if you decided to make a reservation, I will send you a custom quote, my "24 hours no extra charge" policy may help you save some money.

If you are looking for someone who loves dogs and is responsible, experienced, caring and flexible to take care of your pups when you are not around, take them to Pawtel in Gaithersburg, I promise your pups will thank you for it later!

Sophia consistently takes good care of Lucy. We trust Sophia to do her best for our pup. Thank you!
Sophia was very professional and she was a great host for Teagan. Teagan loved it there. I will definitely use her again
Sophia was so wonderful to work with, we did a meet n greet where we started at a lovely park then met her at her home and received a tour of the backyard. It is a wonderful area with plenty of room with my dog Buddy to run. She receives and returns the dog outside of the home, I assume for the dog's benefit to not see their owner ever leave the house.

It was our first time leaving our puppy and we are so happy to have Sophia! She sent pictures a few hours after leaving buddy which was so nice seeing!
