About Carmen

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At Kit & Kaboodle's Bed & Biscuit we offer home boarding for small to large pups. Our furry guests are treated like family with loving personalized care during their stay. Top Dog Carmen has 16 years experience in professional pet care, is a life long pet owner, and is certified at Pet First Aid. She opened up the first professional pet sitting/dog walking business in Loudoun County back in 2000. Her company has been covered extensively by the press, including the Washington Post. Additionally, Kit & Kaboodle has won awards including one from the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce for Best Home Based Business. She is passionate about all animals and will treat your furbaby like part of her family when they stay at her home. Next time you plan to go out of town please give us the opportunity to take care of your cherished pet...why? Our tag line still reflects our business philosophy - Because Your Family Member Deserves The Best!

The "ideal" Bed & Biscuit Guest Is:
- Neutered or Spayed
- Current on shots
- Potty trained
- No history of aggression: fear, food, toy
- Dog friendly/socialized
- Kitty friendly
- Laid back personality

A little about me. As an 11 year old I use to be the neighborhood baby sitter, mother's helper and pet sitter. I made good money and was in high demand :) Now as an adult, "Auntie Carmen" is often how I am referred to by my guests. I get to care for pets whom I grow to love, and have been blessed to still be in high demand :) Prior to opening my pet care business I worked in corporate America for over 15 years as a Human Resources professional. I have two resident kitties, Candy & Teddy, who are my personal feline babies and who are doggy friendly.

At my Bed & Biscuit I strive to make your family member feel at home, so they have free roam of my three level townhouse with fenced in yard. I live in a safe, family friendly neighborhood in Ashburn, VA with trails and dog park near by. They get to lounge on all the furniture or dog beds throughout my home during the day, and sleep with me in my bedroom or bed at night. I like to make meal times special, so often times you will smell scrambled eggs and other dog friendly foods being prepared to add to their meals. I'll be home running my professional pet sitting/dog walking business and doing what I love best...taking care of your pets! Your dog vacay includes one walk a day. Additional walks per day are available for a small fee. Kisses, belly rubs, cuddling, purified, cold water & premium, yummy dog treats are provided throughout the day.

Carmen is awesome and super friendly!! I also go back to her whenever we need a sitter. She is the best, and our dog is always happy when he is there!
Carmen was able to help me out with daycare for my dog Bailey on very short notice. She took great care of her and I will definitely use her services again!
Camen welcomed Zeke and Adina into her home. We did a meet and greet so everyone felt good about their upcoming vacation. Puppies were loved and well cared for while we were away! Will definitely come back when we go away again.
