We are part of the original group of DogVacay hosts that joined the company in 2012. We are at home during the day and we dedicate all of our time to care for your fur kids. We have a large fenced yard of nearly an acre that is perfect for a dog vacation. Our two resident minature poodles have a wonderful life meeting and playing with new visitors daily.
We will not accept aggressive dogs or dogs that show any tendencies of bad behavior with other dogs.
We are ideally situated, three miles from Old Town Alexandria, six miles from Mt. Vernon and 10 miles from Washington DC.
We adore dogs and feel special that we are able to look after and love them while their parents are away.The pups have the run of the house, we are tenants.
We try to limit our guests to four per day. We are particular with the breeds that we pair with other breeds and try to limit our intake of large dogs to one per visit. We will inform guests at the time of booking what other dogs we will be hosting with their pet so that they feel comfortable with the guest list.
During warmer weather they are free to roam inside and out and they love our routine and space. They sleep in human beds with us, if allowed. We never crate dogs and will only do so if requested by the owners.
Rates and Times:
Pick up and drop off is 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
If a canine guest is dropped off before 10:00 AM and picked up after 3:00 pm, we give you four hours at no charge as a late check out. After 3 PM we will charge our daily boarding rate of $25 for that day.
Major holidays and the three days immediately before and after the holiday will be billed at a rate of $50 per day.
Puppies under two years of age and elderly dogs might have higher rates and will be taken under consideration.
Please include your drop off and pick up times in your booking request and check with us for availability even if our calendar is marked full.
We have a general pet questionnaire and a policy form which we will e mail to you that should be brought back when you drop off your dog.
We would love to meet you!
