NOTE: As of 6/28/16 we are no longer accepting vacays as we are moving out of state. Thank you to all our doggie guests the past couple of years!
Welcome to Pleasant Pups Getaway located in lovely Mt. Pleasant just minutes from Rock Creek Park!
I am a PhD candidate with a very flexible schedule and Josh, my husband, is a film programmer.
Having both had dogs in our families since childhood, as well as frequently caring for the pets of friends and neighbors while they are away, we have 30 years of dog care experience between the two of us.
Staying with us, your pup is not only guaranteed a safe and comfortable visit, but becomes an honorary member of the family. What's more, our very social seven-year-old Schnoodle, Mr. D, is always thrilled to keep visiting dogs entertained.
A typical day in our household involves a minimum of two long walks, often including a trip to Rock Creek Park or the nearby dog park in Adams Morgan, as well as games of tug-o-war, fetch, and of course, treats!
When it's time to get some sleep, your little (or big) guy is more than welcome to join Mr. D at the foot of our bed, nestle in between the pillows of our couch, or cozy up in a big pile of blankets on the floor.
As dog owners ourselves, we know that regular updates are important, so we'll be sure to check in with pics, emails, and/or text messages during your dog's stay.
*We accept multiple dogs from the same owner, but will not accept two dogs from different homes to stay with us at the same time. Please excuse any confusion if our calendar shows us as available during a given time period and we inform you that we are not; DogVacay lists dates as available unless there are three separate dog bookings on a given day.
