About Pierre & Shane

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Petworth Pups Shane and I are avid dog lovers having both grown up with them as part of our families. We have been together for 21 years and have always had dogs in our home. We also have been foster parents for many rescue dogs over the years. We may be new to DogVacay but are not new to hosting dogs in our dog friendly house. We currently volunteer and foster for Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in Arlington VA. We love to meet other dogs and are very excited to host your family member as one of our own. We hate to board our dogs in a strange kennels when we're out of town, and love when someone can personally attend to our dogs and keep them happy running around and interacting instead of being cooped up. We will provide personal attention to your dog along with frequent walks/play time and interaction with our fun-loving dogs.

We live in a pet friendly three story row house on a quite safe residential street in Petworth DC with a secured fenced backyard and gated front porch area. While at our house, your dog will get 2-3 walks per day through the neighborhood in addition to the walks guests have a few play/ potty breaks in our backyard. We know how hard it is to leave a family member behind when leaving town, we will send you daily updates letting you know how your dog is doing If you're traveling internationally we can provide updates via WhatsApp.

If our schedule shows as unavailable and your dog has previously stayed with us, please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you. Ask about our extended day special rates. 7+ nights

We now also offer:

>Home Visits: We will come to your home for a 30-minute visit to check in on your pets. Visit’s will include play time, feeding, litter box and/or cage cleaning yard waste clean-up, and home security check.

>Dog Walking: We will walk your dog around your neighborhood to insure your dog gets out to stretch their legs, get some fresh air and does his business.

>Pick up and Drop off: If you have a busy schedule and don’t have time to drop of your pup, we can coming pick them.

>Dog Bathing: You can now look forward to picking up a happy, exhausted dog that smells even better than when you dropped off.

You can experience peace of mind knowing that your pet is in caring, capable hands, while you are away, if you have any questions, special requests please feel free to reach out to us.

Pierre and Shane have been animal lovers for most of their lives. They love dogs and are very dedicated to providing a loving and nurturing environment for them. They currently have three dogs and love them unconditionally. During the last couple of years they have worked with an organization to foster dogs. They brought dogs into their home and helped them find their "forever homes" which is awesome. Please consider them for your DogVacay!

I have known Pierre and Shane for over 18 years and they have been dog owners during that time. I have spent a lot of time with them and noticed that they have always treated their dogs very well. They are respectful of their animals, yet remain in gentle control at all times.

Pierre and Shane have fostered dogs for years, giving homes to many be it temporary, or joining their pack permanently. They're both huge dog lovers and your dog will be in safe, loving hands at their house.

Pierre is a responsible dedicated dog lover who would be an excellent choice to care for anyone's "best friend". His three dogs are friendly and social with everyone they meet. The home is always clean and always welcoming.

Pierre is a very loving person. To him, a pet is a member of the family: someone to be treated with love, respect, and caring.

Some years ago, one of his elderly pets had to be put down because he was in such pain. It was killing Pierre but he knew it had to be done. He lovingly bought steak for the dog's last meal. The following morning he accompanied his beloved pet and held him as he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I spoke to him the next day and he spoke of his pain and missing his friend but said he was grateful his friend was no longer hurting.

He speaks of his pets' accomplishments as a proud dad. He and Shane have fostered many shelter pets socializing them for their forever homes. He has done this willingly with an open heart.

His love of dogs is very obvious and genuine. He's a wonderful Doggie Dad.

Having known Pierre and Shane well over 20 years, I can think of no one more caring and more loving with regard to pets. I can attest to their always having been devoted pet owners, as well as often fostering dogs that were awaiting adoption. Without exception, when no one stepped forward to adopt those dogs, Pierre and Shane lovingly made those fortunate pups permanent members of their own family--even when their household already included one, sometimes two other dogs. They just cannot bear the thought of a dog being returned to a shelter without any guarantee of an adoptive home. Such a pity more people do not share their benevolent attitude.

Pierre Gaster is a devoted animal lover. Responsible,honest,loyal,true,trustworthy.I trust him in any situation. When my mother died of a sudden heart attack ,I had to find homes for her three beloved pets. I was desperate to find them safe, forever homes. Pierre took my mom's beloved cat and treasured dog.They lived long,happy lives.Pierre is a wonderful man.

Pierre has a great home that would be perfect for any dog to stay! A fenced in backyard with different landscapes acts as a puppy paradise for any pup. In addition, the house has a fenced in front porch for lazy afternoons. And with three resident pups no stay will be lonely!

Pierre has many years of dog experience, currently owning three pups of his own. He also has years of fostering under his belt. I highly recommend Pierre for any dog's stay!
Pierre was great!! Very caring and communicative.
